    Are there any decent/genuine people out there?

    Please don’t take this the wrong way but in my life i fail to see that there’s anyone genuine. Men and women are as bad as each other. I see people with genuine friendships/relationships and i wonder why we don’t have anyone. It’s not just me. It’s my whole family. Is there something wrong with...

    Anyone else taken lamictal...?

    I've taken lamictal before, but when I tried taking it a couple of months ago, I was extremely restless and just felt like I couldn't sit still. I felt a lot better emotionally, but my body felt pretty uncomfortable. I've had horrible reactions on just antidepressants, in the past, also. I'm...

    Daughter hearing voices

    My 9yr old has just started talking to me about hearing voices. From reading what people say on here it sounds very genuine. I'm not sure what to do?

    Survival only

    How did it get so bad? My life. I'm an empty shell. My soul has shrivelled. Broken. Damaged. In hiding. A once full and vibrant life full of promise. Now I'm on death row. I can't even write any more. I'm in such despair. Hypomania will come again and trick me into thinking I am happy. I am not...

    Feel like lashing out at the head twisters

    No appointments so they are saved. Shrinks? They only looking, asking and probing for danger signs. Nothing to do with care and healing and genuine empathy. Could lash out at them except I hardly ever see them these days.

    No Genuine Feelings

    I feel like I have no genuine feelings for anyone. What is that about? I never contact anyone, or very very rarely. I've been watching a reality show on tele and seeing how emotional they all get about each other and their friendships in there, brought it all to light. Makes me feel cold or...

    Seeing the Negatives.

    Ok, so I have this friend, who despite SHing because she is upset and for a release, doesn't see the negatives of it all. She sees it as artistic and she's just "always done it". She doesn't show any guilt or anything about it afterwards, I think this is genuine too and not just being...

    Aural photography

    Just wondered if anyone here has had their Aura read or photographed. Also whether anyone has ever had any kind of spiritual reading that they actually considered genuine (a question for cynics particularly!) :peace:

    Have been thinking a lot about all the stuff that I've gone through. & how unhelpful the majority of the responses have been to what I have experienced. People are simply terrified of Madness in this society & culture. What is so wrong with altered & non-ordinary states? Why is there such...
