    Stuck in a random cycle of foot problems

    Do you ever feel like wandering the earth?

    This was one of my reactions when I started hearing voices six years ago, I left my home and started wandering by foot and by train, going to different towns and just wandering around while the voices told me things, and sometimes I constructed stories around what they said. Anyway, the...

    Need some guidance please.

    I'm new here, don't really know what's up with me so don't know what forum to go to. I've been told I suffer from depression but other than starting on meds a few days ago I haven't looked in to anything else. I think it may be more than that but I'm honestly clueless when it comes to this kind...

    ED - side effects

    For three weeks I've had reduced sensation in my left foot coupled with a weakness to flex my foot, this is probably the result of restricting right? If so, should I tell my GP when she next sees me or will I only get the third degree?

    I see dead people

    Have asked this question before, but didn't really get many answers - What visions do you see? I personally see lots of people, some that look fine and some that look like what you might expect to see in a horror film. Also, just lately, I have started seeing little creatures - about the size...

    It was a real struggle at first, but I am starting to notice the benefits of going to the gym regularly.

    Does anyone know why this happens?

    Hi Many times I want to go out with friends, for lunch or dinner or just coffee on weekends. Sometimes I am the one who suggests that lets go out. But towards the time to go out, I resist going out and make a lie to my friends, like I sprained my foot, or I've slipped and hurt myself. I dont...
