    Characters you relate to

    Hi guys, As I'm sure you will have all noticed, TV and media often have a really rubbish representation of BPD! However sometimes writers or authors do get it right and I find that I really relate to a certain character with some of my symptoms. So my question is, what fictional characters (in...

    Where And Who My Voices Really Come From

    After 26 years of schizophrenia and hearing voices, I have formed an interesting conclusion regarding their etiology (the causes of my auditory verbal hallucinations). I used to think I was experiencing several voices belonging to multiple characters. Each character seemed to have its own...

    Being in love with fictional characters

    I feel so much emotions when it comes to fictional characters. I really feel love towards them and many other emotions. I daydream about my favorite fictional characters cheering me up when I'm down. Things like that. Who else does this? I feel like I don't fit into reality at all. I always...

    Have you ever heard of something like this?

    What Do the DSM, Elvis Presley, and Dionysus Have in Common?

    'To a classicist (a professor of Greek and Latin, like me), the psychotic illnesses detailed in the pages of the DSM look like nothing but the main characters of the classical tragedies of ancient Greece, only born anew under medicalized names'. What Do the DSM, Elvis Presley, and Dionysus Have...

    Buddhist teachers: past and present

    To go alongside the Buddhism basics threads, I thought I would do a little series of posts all in one thread about different Buddhist teachers from the past and the present, to give people some pointers about where to look for teachings and how Buddhism evolved. Buddhist history is rich and...

    I'm 29 years old and started to hear voices after a bitter break up with my boyfriend . There were several characters that made up a story. I was given the message to carry princess home . The voices kept on scolding me and sometimes cursing . The sad thing is that I thought all this was real...

    Getting attached to fictional characters

    This issue might seem a bit silly but it's a big deal to me. I think this is caused by my depression, but recently I've gotten so attached to some characters that the thought of the series coming to an end makes me want to cry. I usually watch short or really light anime with some heavier/more...

    I'm losing the one I care most about

    I’m a writer, or at least I want to be. I’m also a Feminist, which is something I try to be. I’ve never written a screen play for any of my ideas, comic, film or TV. For years I’ve just kind of been stuck in the concept stage, constantly changing and re-thinking ideas, but I’ve noticed something...

    Overactive imagination?

    I got thinking about this the other day and tried to have a search around but I couldn't find a good deal of information. Basically I realised that my imagination might be problematic because I'm 19 and still have to sleep with a nightlight because I'm afraid of what's in the dark. Ever since I...

    :) Hi

    I have a question about DID/MPD. I have been diagnosed with it since I was 13 however I'm too afraid to tell my psychologist much more about my disorder besides the fact that there are 3 male voices that basically have their own lives inside of my head. The reason why I haven't told her anymore...
