    Do you think my MP can help is there is a conspiracy against me?

    Against myself and that its important for me to tell somebody incase something happens to me. I can’t go too much into it as they are probably monitoring my internet usage and what I write. What can a MP do? Will they help, will they investigate?

    voices after talking on internet

    I tripped out again last night talking on the internet on one laptop and playing music fairly loud. Whenever I make real time contact with people on the internet I generally start to hear them as a voice. My voices started responding as if these people and anyone that crossed my mind, could...

    How the internet has affected me

    I have an internet addiction. When I am offline for one hour, I can feel myself getting really tense, taking my anger out on my family. My boyfriend lives in Australia and we talk daily, but I just feel like I am in love with my phone. I always complain about my problems to him and I think he...

    The move

    This forthcoming move is really doing a number on me anxiety/worrying wise, It seems that no amount of reassurance can take my anxiety/worrying away for very long. I keep on thinking I'll end up homeless or when I move my internet contact with other people will end. That thought really creeps me...

    Obsessions vs special interests

    I wonder what the difference,if there is one, is. I don't think mine would count as special interests but do think they affect my functioning as I can become fixated on them to the neglect of other things . Pre internet: Making cassette tapes by artist/genre/year etc. Writing lists of songs by...

    Guru's and the Internet Age

    I was wondering, is it not strange that all these guru's, people with a real claim to be enlightened, come along before the internet age? Jiddhu Krishnamurti, George Gurdjieff, Ramana Maharshi, Meher Baba, Osho, just to pick out a few who garnered a lot of attention in the twentieth century...

    Kicked out of another internet support group

    I got kicked out of another internet support group for merely questioning their rules. I thought it was ridiculous to have to put "trigger warning" on nearly everything before posting. Someone was talking about divorce, and it required a trigger warning. I said they were over protecting people...

    Do you hear voices after talking on the phone?

    voices seem more real like they have identity after I hang up a phone or am in contact with someone on the internet. Anybody else get this way?

    How do people with psychosis use online health information, and do they tell their clinicians?

    How do people with psychosis use online health information, and do they tell their clinicians? The accessibility of the internet is changing the way people learn about their illness, with “Dr Google” (as some health professionals may derogatorily call it) only a few search terms away. The...
