    Anxiety of never seeing or communicating with others again

    New member and first time poster here. For a while I have had a crippling fear of never seeing or communicating with a specific people for the rest of my lifetime. It it's not only people, but places too. For example, I work retail and have been working at the same place for 10 months. Today...

    But what does telepathy sound like? Is it like a voice thought? I'm just in denial about my schitzophrenia and the voices. I know I'm communicating with the voices but where do the voices come from my own head with their own thoughts.

    I suck at communicating

    (foreword: bless you if you read all of this) it has been brought to my attention recently (though not for the first time) that i have a tendency to come off as rude or apathetic when talking to people. this is not my intent. and i never seem to be able to hear myself as others do. like...

    I don't understand what I'm saying as I say it.

    I have a really hard time communicating because when I speak, I find that the I am detached from the words I say. In other words, I don't understand what I'm saying, even though I am technically speaking. This makes it so difficult to speak more than one sentence, because after one, I'm already...

    Useful UK helplines

    Samaritans have sadly proved spectacularly shit. I know it's not their intention, but I actually feel more suicidal after communicating with them. Does anyone know of any useful UK helplines that they've had a positive experience with?

    failing to communicate

    I'm struggling again. My parents came round on Tuesday and told me that my brother had invited them and my grandma over for Xmas day but excluded me. It hurts so much to be excluded, I would never do the equivalent to him. My family expects me to keep in regular contact with all of them. The...
