    I'm not part of the herd

    My visions started in my teens I'd see leopards walking beside me through the trees and bushes and Victorian dressed peasant's standing still by trees just staring at me. I can see them and describe them in detail as well as I could the trees that they stood by, but I always knew they were...

    Hey, I'm new here. I searched for some kind of mental health forum, because I have nobody to talk to about it. Everyone thinks I'm happy. Currently still struggling with my doctors to get proper treatment and medication, but I'm really struggling to control impulsive behaviour and I don't know...

    Sick of these voices

    I am writing as I am on another breakpoint from these voices again and again and again. I have been hearing these same people for 11 years and they never stop, they fully control me, manipulate me and push me around. I cannot desire to go or do anything as I feel fully controlled. Now they are...

    it's me again

    Hello all, I'm back again. I have ran into an issue with having my mom move out. She can't get an apartment until she pays her back rent which won't be for a few months. This has just gotten me stressed. I'm trying to control everything but I can feel it slipping away.

    Struggling to keep control.

    Hi guys Joined here because I feel I need some more regular accountability and support because I'm starting to feel far out of control of my actions. I've had MH issues since childhood and I don't think my parents ever came to terms with it. In the last year I've finally had this diagnosed...

    I'm scared of becoming anorexic again

    When I was 16, I stopped eating almost completely. I felt awful about my body and I only ate once or twice a week. I nearly fainted everyday, just moving exhausted me. Now, I'm on a bunch of medications that increase my appetite and make me gain weight, so I'm becoming very self conscious again...

    The Root of Rehearsing

    I am rehearsing what I want to say to the tenants daughter, over and over and over. I can't sleep with this constant repeating cycle of the same exact speech. And it occurs to me that my ego wants to control the situation; that I am trying to control reality by repeating my planned speech to...

    I can't control my facial expressions, mainly my eyebrows and it's worse when i'm anxious. My eyebrows go really low on my face and it looks weird/creepy and it looks like i'm very angry too even if i'm not feeling it. I try to keep my eyebrows raised enough so that it looks normal but it's an...

    wagging your tailbone to cure anxiety

    By watching for your tailbone right before your thoughts make you sick from anxiety, you can feel it start to wag. I've known my tailbone still wags for a few years now when I looked it up and sure enough it does. What I noticed recently is that sometimes when I'm excited by thought in my chair...

    Voice making me feel inadequate.

    I don’t want to disclose what he’s saying but I feel very vulnerable. Been trying to talk to my support staff about it. My intimate thoughts are leaking out and people are hearing them. I’m scared because they are very personal and if I say anything the people who hear them that just concretes...

    Where to start?

    I'm new here. I've had mental health problems for as long as I can remember (over 25 years) and eating issues for over four years. Along the way a lot of bad situations have happened. Abused as a child and then in a violent relationship. My ex took my daughter with her when we split nearly six...
