    When I'm psychotic I'm a fishetarian

    When I'm psychotic I'm a fishetarian. The last number of episodes I have had I would eat mainly vegatables and the odd piece of fish. I just had the beliefs that it was wrong to kill an animal when you can eat something else. Of course if my life depended on it I would eat meat but I would...

    What should I do?

    So I'm new to this and lately I've been very confused about what is going on. So it all started when I was younger and I stopped eating normal foods such as vegetables and fruits. My parents thought this was normal as most kids go off these foods then start eating them again but I never did. I...

    Explaining the metaphors for the christians some more.

    Salt christians, it's bad, not good. Tastes great right, well that's bad. Pillar of salt, it's bad. Salt crumbles and kills you if you eat to much of it, it's bad. To be salt or salty, very bad thing christians. Salt of the earth, it's horrible to be that.

    I feel like I'm losing control again

    Lately I've been noticing that I'm not eating as much and a lot of the time I don't eat. Sometimes I purge. And I know that I'm not supposed to be doing these things again but I just don't like the weight I gained. I really need some support. I might be looking at going to a hospital again.
