    Do these fleeting thoughts classify as mood swings?

    Within seconds or minutes my mind changes from “let’s move forward, go to college, work hard and get a good job and better yourself” and then the next moment it says “don’t bother you’ll be dead soon, enjoy the remaining months of your life” And I have episodes of crying, irritability and...

    Can someone help me out quickly please? What does this mean? I’m very upset.

    This is about my psychiatric nurse... This was ages ago. I told him that I was uncomfortable by his remarks e.g “you’re attractive” and “what’s not to like about you?” and firstly, he acknowledged it and he claimed he wouldn’t mention it again. Weeks later, I saw him again and he said “I was...

    I'm lost

    I found out the other day that I don't want to kill myself. But I still want to die to be honest but in an accident. I can't kill myself. I don't want to either. But I do want the pain to stop. I still cry every day. I still think about her a lot. But hopefully that will lessen with time. I'm...

    Am I in psychosis ?

    I've been hearing voices for a long time now. The voices became hostile about 8 months ago. They are telling to hurt/kill people because the DWP and the security services are planning to kill off all the long term sick and disabled people on behalf of the government. They can't do it up front...

    i don't understand...

    This is how the pain starts: I think I meet my soul mate, they turn out to break my heart, but I am never at fault, although, I constantly break it off and start again. I can't seem to think straight when someone I'm interested in my presence shows me attention. I never think about...

    My Mother's Words From 5 Years Ago Still Hurt Me Today

    Hi everyone, I am going back home very soon, so I wanted to get this off my chest and maybe get some advice. To give a brief background behind this, I have always had a distant relationship with my parents. I think a big reason for this is because they are busy with work or doing something...
