    I'm on borrowed time

    I've been suffering from depression for 15 years, been there and done that with every treatment going with no success. I've never attempted suicide but I've been close but I've never been brave enough to take the final step. One day I will take that final step though, it's...

    Has anyone experienced something like this.

    This is the ultimate conundrum. I know ideas stem from other places and often people with schizophrenia or just people if you don't like that word being so general or confining have been quick to adopt concepts from ideas or books or television or music into some story of their own. That's what...

    Everything seems weird

    Have you ever got the feeling that nothing’s as usual, nothing’s normal. Even people, voices, shapes.. everything looks so strange. Like it’s quite hard to handle it when it happens and it usually lasts for a week at least. Does it happen to you ? How do you deal with it?

    Disfunctional household

    My parents were not meant to be together and stayed together longer than they should have. Incompatibly, tragedy and all. I was born months after a tragedy. It was too soon for me to come here. Way too soon. Then my sibling months later. Too much going on off the back. From then on I grew up in...

    Is working hard enough?

    Whatever it is in life, almost everyone tries hard. But why is it that only a few make it? Life isn't fair is it. I know everyone has their own time to shine. But why do some people go backwards while some go forward in their life if both are trying hard? The ones who fall maybe didn't work...

    Really need some opinions please. Anyone heard of this ? Please read.
