    vulnerable groups

    how many of you think mentally unwell people are scapegoated as the cause of their problems, whether they be loneliness, sexual health issues or their fears [or paranoia] of what may happen to them if they allow others to control their decision making. basically, do you think you are in a...

    Making a complaint

    I live in 24/7 supported housing. Been struggling lately. I decided I needed to speak to the police for support so mental health matters advised me just to let staff know what I was doing. The staff member I spoke to told me I'd be wasting police time (even though police had given me the...

    Fear of being attacked

    Sometimes I have a strong fear of being attacked while I’m trying to successfully finish something. I feel like this is an emotional sign that I’ll make a long term goal in the future and I should be willing to sacrifice it if it means possibly ruining a life and making a fatal enemy.

    Feeling guilty for my illness and not overcoming it

    I have intrusive thoughts. I fight them every day. It's an endless war that I'm not winning. It feels as though I've somehow wrapped myself into a loop of thoughts that I have become so accustomed to that I don't know how to break out of it. I think the emotional numbness is making it difficult...

    Feeling better today...having weird thoughts though (nothing bad)

    :( I still feel like I am making this up in my head. Are these urges real? Why do I get them? Are they just going to go away like the other things I have obsessed about, then dropped once I got tired of them? They feel different, they come without warning. I don't know what is real anymore. I am...

    Does it help to know someone is there for you?

    I'm asking what feel like some dumb questions right now, but I'm hoping the only stupid question is the one you don't ask... When you're depressed, does it help to know someone is there for you, even if they're not present? I feel like I'm treading a fine line between letting my depressed...

    My neighbor is monitoring me

    So this could be purely paranoia or my gut instinct is correct. I think my neighbors might be making noise nuisance sheets about me and they have been doing it for some time. I'm not a noisy person I don't play music and if I do it be through headphones and I never watch TV as I'm mostly on...

    Public transport

    I'm faced with having to use public transport. So I can go and buy a car from ebay. I was meant to go today but instead I sent a text telling them that I'm unwell. I really want the car as well. The thought of having to use busses is making me feel uneasy and dizzy. I don't want them thinking...
