    Anxiety Due To HPPD (Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder)

    I urge anybody who has been severely affected by hallucinogens to read about HPPD. It may give you hope as it's pioneer-Dr.Henry Abraham believes it can only be truly relieved by Clonazepam which is the least addictive strong Benzodiazipine. Loads of Old Schooler Shrinks are opposing it's...

    Theory on shadow people origins

    Have you ever thought that maybe the shadow people that lurk around the corners is actually you looking back on your life? The idea being that you're already dead and have moved to a place where time travel (if it could be called that) enables you to revisit past events. This makes me think that...

    Hello. Recently I was diagnosed with a chronic illness that leaves me in pain, emotionally imbalanced and with insomnia - at only 38 too! I also had a year from hell with a ton of trauma, including 3 surgeries, which has given me PTSD. I use to be a happy go lucky/ active person, so this is a...

    Bf's best friend is dying

    My boyfriends best friend is dying. He's stage 4 cancer in the lungs, which spread to the liver. For some reason they are giving him chemotherapy. He was my bf's sponsor in AA thirty years ago. So I automatically respected him when I met him. There's nothing one can do to help.

    Can't stop thinking about dying

    I can't get the thought of myself dying out of my head. I'm not having suicidal thoughts but I always think of myself dying in whatever situation I'm in, for example, if I'm driving on the highway I picture myself crashing and dying all the way through to my own funeral. I've been thinking about...

    Help? I'm really struggling

    Don't feel I can take much more. The pain is unbearable. I hate BPD so much but I hate me more. Can't stop thinking of dying. Everyone would be better off without me. I am a bad person. I don't deserve to live.

    I Got The Job

    I should be more excited, but I'm not, and I don't know why. Maybe it's just all the stress that my family is going through with my brother-in-law in the process of dying of cancer.
