    New mental health forum member

    It is irritating that the hearing voices group I go to - we don't talk about voices. We just sit there, and the facilitator gives us a home economics tutorial. Don't get me wrong she is a lovely lady, but really - why can't we talk about the voices? Would be helpful to share our experiences...

It just something about dealing with people that seems irritating to me. It just seems like it's twice as...

    Not happy with who I am... But can't change

    Hi all! So I'm new to this forum. Hoping it'll give me somewhere to express how I feel to people who will understand. Don't get me wrong, I have very supportive people around me, but whenever I try to explain my anxiety they just tell me I'm "overthinking things" and to "relax". I know I am -...
