    Wanting to SH

    Just keep staring at the fresh scar tissue on my wrist. Wondering if it will be permanent. I guess it was deeper than I thought. Want to do it again. And I'm listening to my voices again. They want me to do something drastic. So I'm going to try and sleep with music on. I wish I had my own place...

    Really really bad day today

    I know everyone hates me, especially people close to me. It rips me apart. The person I talk to the most, wanted me to give them space for a few days so I did. I talked to them when they messaged me and every time they talked to me, it was to argue about something as small as me texting them...

    When you eventually go back to work, what will you tell your employers?

    When you eventually go back to work, what will you tell your employers? Those of you that have been out of work for 3+ years, when you're mentally better and start looking for work, what will you say the gap in your work history is about? I want to be honest and just say that I wasn't in the...

    It's happening again..

    Since my meds have been increased I haven't been seeing anything. I've felt like I'm not alone but didn't see anyone. These last couple of weeks I've been hearing and seeing things.

    Hi ! I'm just starting a thread to see if there are other people on here who might agree . I gave the subject of my voices a thought and decided a logical explanation is that they are ghosts . The first thing that came to mind was the word " apparitions " - and then I thought - like ghosts . It...
