    Jesus Mania (Is it a God Complex?)

    Trying to figure if the times I've channelled Jesus to the point of certainty, turning tables and that sort of thing. Is it my ego was too big or too small? Was I having a God complex moment like world leaders do all the time, or nearer the humble reckoner wrecking out of justified anger at...

    Help! I think my brother may be going off the deep end

    I love and care for my brother but I think something is wrong with him. If you saw his public Instagram you would see what I mean. It is an interesting look inside his mind. He posts pictures of himself half naked all the time, and he devalues others all the time. For some reason he is all...

    B complex taken with medications. Interactions?

    A little while ago, I took a B Complex multi vitamin (with Vitamin C), by the brand Nature's Bounty. Shortly before that, I took my antipsychotics and generic Lexapro. Before I felt kind of weird, and I still feel that way. Could it be because of possible interactions?

    Bullying causes Type (2) PTSD otherwise called Complex PTSD.

    My life could have been very different if my Secondary School had addressed my bullying but instead they blamed it on me. Judith Herman pioneered the establishment of Complex PTSD to be included in the DSM and people with PTSD are highly vulnerable to Alcohol and Hallucinogen abuse which is...
