    Nymphomania cures

    Listen to the radio on your phone or device, you'll need headphones. Smoke barefoot and wear sandals. Wear a short sleeve shirt.

    Insight Timer

    This is a great app for guided meditations. There are many different types on there including for sleep specifically. There are thousands of audios and it's completely free. I often listen to help me sleep using my sleep headphones (£10 from Amazon). Hope it may be of use to some of you.

    What the hell is going on ?????

    Why those words ? Why those thoughts ? Why do you make me think that way ? Am I a bad person ? Did I do wrong things ? Is this what I deserve ? Is this my punishment ? Why does nothing make any sense ? Why is everything so fast and loud ? Why can't I stop it slow it down some ? I'm so tired I...

    Wanting to SH

    Just keep staring at the fresh scar tissue on my wrist. Wondering if it will be permanent. I guess it was deeper than I thought. Want to do it again. And I'm listening to my voices again. They want me to do something drastic. So I'm going to try and sleep with music on. I wish I had my own place...

    Hearing Voices Group.

    I was there today. It is good, recommend it. It was quite funny today, some guy had spent £500 on headphones - not sure if it was a joke - must be. I am going to try and keep it a regular thing.

    Afraid I'm Going To Self-Harm Again

    I self-harmed last night, and now I'm wanting to do it again tonight. I'm not coping with life. What set me off now is that I can't find my headphones, and they were bloody expensive. How stupid is that? But when I listen to music with my headphones I feel like I am transported to a...

    When does obsessive talking to yourself become a real problem?!

    I have this thing, I know everyone talks to themselves to some degree but I am getting disturbed by the fact that I sometimes 'have' to do it. It's like what i think isn't real unless I say it out loud so that someone else can hear/approve/agree even though I'm alone....Most days I have someone...
