    I feel like I will never get better...

    I have been to so many psychiatrists, been put on so many medications, and I feel like I'm in the same rut I've been in. I suffer with an EXTREME phobia of vomit (aka - emetophobia). I am mainly scared of my kids vomiting and it consumes my life. I think about it 247, I cry, I panic, I literally...

    I just need to tell someone

    I started hurting myself recently. Self harming is for me the scariest, I do it with a clear mind and I love how it looks. And I dobt want to stop, it is not the only thing I use. I drink, alot, everyday. People know but believe my excuses. People have seen my scars, and know what they are but...

    How do you do it? Why can't I?

    I'm sat here on a chair, on Christmas Day, with my two teddies next to me, at my parents yet all I can think about is the fact I just can't cope with life anymore. It all just goes on and on and on, for months at a time, getting worse as the days go along and each time these "episodes" go on...

    my heart hurts..

    My son came for a visit today and we had lots of fun. When he left I was informed he's been really aggressive and waking up in the night to hide snacks. This hurts me because he's never been a violent kid and when he wakes up he crawls in with me. I feel so sad because his behavior tells me...

    How do you end the pain? I'm tired of hurting and hating. I hurt all the time. I hate this world and my place in it. I'm growing weary of the fight.

    Typical I don't know what to do.

    So it's my first time on this website because I really don't know what to do. I've been self harming since age 8. It got real bad between ages of 13-17 years; I'm 25, nearly 26 years old now. But in recent months it's all I wanted to do. I was abused by my brother as a child. I was bullied...

    Self harm

    I feel like hurting myself again. I feel so low right now and it feels like a release to me. I'm afraid to talk to my husband or mother. The two close people I have in my life right now. I don't want them to know. My mother may be more understand but I don't think my husband will be. We've...

    I feel like I'm fighting for my life.

    I don't actively want to kill myself, but it feels like each day is harder to get though. I feel like I am fighting for my life. Not every day. It keeps getting easy for a week or so, then it's back to this. And it's harder every time. I don't want any of this. But I'm not brave enough to take...

    Using Your Imagination With Voices

    For a while I have been able to give my voices hugs by imagining hugging them when they talk. It often creates a feeling of warmth, maybe love, and some degree of comfort. I try to do this when we are not getting along, whether or not they want a hug. I also have imagined showing them how I feel...
