    So I have been hearing a voice that calls itself God ever since I was seriously ill and as a result feel very close to God. The only problem is that sometimes the voice can be somewhat nasty. For example I can be praying for half an hour and for that half an hour the voice replies in an...

    First time realizing something might be wrong, need help.

    I have just realized that when I smoke marijuana I become aware of the anxiousness I deal on a daily basis and how it's hurting me. I also realize how primitive my sense of humor is while I don't have THC in my system, and how all my friends actually realize that, and then they modify their...

Ever since I was young, I couldn't comprehend why I didn't feel sorry for people in the news like others and why I didn't cry at sad movies. The only time I ever really cried was when I realised how different I actually was. When I was 13...
