    My uncommon, irrational fear

    I have three fears that I group together into a “fear of things moving that shouldn’t move” which sounds weird, but that’s just what I’ve always called this. Let me explain: Ever since I was really young, I’ve been so scared of things that sway (wind chimes, swing sets, hanging stuff, those...

    So much merchandise.

    Look at all of those coffee cups would you?! Like 20,000 different kinds of coffee cups to choose from eh? Perhaps we could handle some of this differently. No matter what it is they are making to much of it. So i don't see a coffee cup, i see a guy killing himself to escape the factories...

    Conversations with voices in my head.

    "Let's talk i guess, nothing else to do i guess." I say. "What would you like to talk about? How we are going to kill you?" They say. "Yeah, why don't you? Still haven't." I say. "Already told ya, we want you to do it, we want a suicide." They say. "It's not suicide though if you just...

    Barely hanging on

    I wish I knew where to go and what to do. I have made do so many mistakes and hurt so many people that they have either given up on me or think I'm hopeless. I'm not so sure they are wrong. I want to do good and be better but what if I can't what if I was just made bad.

    I was a killer in a past life, and I feel terrible because of it.

    Since I was a young boy, I had strange memories that couldn't have been memories from my current life. One such memory was the recollection of being hanged by several cheering people, from a large tree branch. Additionally, I was very attached to a specific time period with no explanation...

    Dead inside

    Sometimes I wonder if it's possible for part of me to be truly dead inside. Like my 'happy' side died and now my miserable side is on the edge, barely hanging on.

    does anxiety make you ill?

    Yes. Certainly does in my case. Crippling fear that literally roots me to the spot. I'm powerless to stop it! I get the shakes, feel sick & legs turn to jelly. Dunno where to turn. I find myself hanging onto walls, lamposts. Anything i can find really. Is it too much to ask for one week of...

    Work and behaviour I would not do

    So I keep getting locked in work and home which is bizarre. Now if I get locked in at work I have to stay locked in apparently.
