    need to eat a balanced meal

    I am new to this forum and need help. After years of binge eating I feel I have finally overcome the urge to binge. I have had an increase in panic attacks but I have found the strength somehow to ride wave, difficult as it is. For a month now I have not binged on junk food and have managed...

    Faking DID?

    I have done a lot of reading,have browsed many forums(not talking about this place though) and it is hard for me to believe there are truly as many people with DID that claim they have it. Something I have noticed is the vast amount of people that make it seem/sound like DID is a fun or cool...

    I won't be too specific but I was bored so I was mildly self harming on my leg a bit. Not even enough to hurt or even make a mark (wasn't my intention this time) but push come to shove, now I have tiny marks all over my leg. Complete accident but it doesn't look that way... I try to keep my...

    I’d like to say sorry x

    I’m feeling a bit bad about how I behaved last night. There are certain people on here who I am very fond of (you know who you are). Many of you have been struggling and have come close to ending it; I responded badly to this by getting upset and what’s worse letting you know I was upset. I...

    Hi everyone, I wrote my poem below when I was getting better and in therapy with a DBT Practitioner, and before I re-lapsed, in every way. Hopefully once you've read it you may find some solace in the words and it's sentiments like my re-newed hope for myself? DREAMS CAN COME TRUE One day I...

    There's Nothing Selfish About Suicide

    There's Nothing Selfish About Suicide | Katie Hurley I am a survivor of suicide. I don't talk about it a lot these days, as I've reached the point where it feels like a lifetime ago. Healing was a long and grief-stricken process. There were times when I felt very alone in my grief and there...

    things just get worse

    So it seems my wife isn't doing as well as I made out in my last post :unsure: Whilst in hospital a nurse found her with something wrapped around her neck. I dont know what it was, nor do I know what her true intention was, but it was enough to put her back on 15 min obs. I seriously don't know...

    Am I a stalker?!!!

    Hi there, I've rambled on here several times recently about a friendship that had fallen apart. I'm still really sad about it now but the things my former friend said in his last communication have really, really worried me ... I was severely depressed when our friendship came to an end and I...
