    Rough Day

    I'm having a rough day. The voices are confusing me or the single voice is re-enforcing the idea that I'm dumb. It might call me hypocritical but the things I hear it say are predictable reactions to what I am feeling. I'm feeling dumb today and the voice will say "honestly you are dumb but it's...

    Experience of CBD for anxiety?

    I honestly don't know if this is the right subforum for this question because I don't know what it is lol but this sounded like the most appropriate I guess. more easily when I'm tired, but not exclusively, I seem to get easily overstimulated by sounds especially. for instance I'm tired and...

    Are these feelings a common part of growing up?

    A curious, disturbung sense of a profound loss that triggers rage, deep grief and even suicidal thoughts was a "gift" I first received on my sixth birthday while laying in my bed with tears in my eyes.

    SA has been a thing in my life for as long as I can remember. I see it as sort of a parasite that has attached itself to me and controls me.
