    Relentless voices

    I've had enough of it all. I don't want to hear voices any more. The voice said to me today that if I was to stop listening to music and do as they say I would become a rich and famous author. I would rather be dead than hear them any more. There must be a way to shut them the fuck up. Someone...

    Need an alternative to Pregabalin, any ideas of what I should maybe ask for?

    Need an alternative to Pregabalin, any ideas of what I should maybe ask for? I've been on Pregabalin for 5 years nearly now, all the way from 75mg x2 to 300mg x2 and now 200mg x2. The reason for coming down a dose was as a result of a chance talk with a pharmacist, the first person to ever...

    Unconscious thoughts/beliefs

    Medicinal grade hops, passion flower, and catnip. So glad I've discovered this tea! I wish I'd discovered it 5 years ago! This is better to get me calm and sleeping than valerian, and this is what's going to help me reduce my quetiapine. As of last night I am back down to 400 mg of...

    totally triggered

    A lot of my self-harming was (initially) related to flashbacks of a youth leader (whom I trusted implicitly) being 'inappropriate' with me. I am still 'friends' with him on FB because I am friends with his wife and it would cause more problems to delete him than to just keep him and ignore...
