    Hi everyone!

    Hi everyone, I haven't really been in therapy before for depression or anything, but I had a certain period last year when I didn't know what I was feeling and all I wanted was to stay in bed for months, didn't want to eat and didn't want to talk to people. And I didn't know what that was. I...

    My Problem that is the Solution

    I like to like to post in highly temporary forums, that are cataloged and recorded for future convictions by police powers, as an aggression against civilization as mandate or fiat, and republics that will accuse me of destroying any induced sense of decorum. I have a sense of community. From...

    The Noonday Demon: An Atlas for Depression by Andrew Solomon

    This was just on Dutch tv, with a long interview with the author. Seemed really interesting, with a lot of discussion, case studies and personal journeys by the author. If you're in the market for a book about depression and want to know everything, it sounds like you could do much worse than...

    You and Me Together

    I believe we all have two minds: Our own thinking process and another one that is built by design to aide us no matter if it even may bring harm to others. It's another creature that watches the world with us. Does anyone here believe something along those lines? I genuinely want to ask if its...

    overcoming self destroying habits

    I have just made a monumental f**k up at work, the sort which could get me sacked. It's going to be reported to higher up and I have to wait and see what they want to do. However in a discussion with my line manager I realised this is a pattern of self destruction that I have repeated over the...

    Is this a doppelgänger?

    I have been bothered with hallucinations in the past few weeks, mainly of a 'person' seen out of the corner of my eye. When I looked straight at it, it wasn't there. I have been under a lot of stress. On the day of seeing my pdoc I suddenly wondered if it was a doppelganger. I thought I had...

    This is the process I have followed that has taken me from an abusive situation with voices to one that is supportive. 1. Search - look for voices that have the most potential to talk with.
