    A Confusing Mix

    I don't know how to exactly describe this, and I don't know what to expect from posting this but here it is: I realized I've been experiencing dissociation since middle school, when I feel my depression had really started. But it's middle school, you know? Everyone was going through it...

    Lingering psychosis symptoms

    I have been taking lamotrigine to treat bipolar disorder for a while now and it has helped tremendously. Before this, I went through delusions where I suddenly developed fake memories of people I know in reality and believed I could communicate telepathically through those memories. Despite...

    Affected by deaths in the media

    Today the body of singer Scott Hutchison was found. He was very young, and he committed suicide. His story reminded me very much of my suicide attempts, simply walking away from things with the intention of never coming back. It’s bringing back bad memories for me. It reminds me of when Chris...

    Ghosts have no living brain to make thought

    I asked my voices or the ghosts or whatever if they think they have no memories to make thoughts because they have no living brain. They think it sounds about right.

    Unsure: What is REAL anyway

    Been a strange sort of a few days. More visuals, more voices, tactiles as well. Was shaken awake yesterday and the bed was still rocking when I awoke. The only way that could have been possible is if I was having another seizure, but I haven't had one in some time at least not to my knowledge. I...

    Do you remember what your voices say?

    Are you able to keep them as memories? I mean do they become memories because I've been wondering...we hear noise and sound everyday and forget most of them. But I seem to remember some of the topics that the voices keep mentioning.

    What's the point

    I'm new to the forum. Feeling extremely low and have been told talking helps.(although it hasn't yet). My life feels so empty. I'm struggling to find my place. Have a broken heart that hurts so much and a mind that can't turn off the memories, to the point that it's driving me mad. I can't...

    Can anyone relate to any of this?

    (Content warning: mention of abuse, dissociation?) Hello, I am not sure which category this would have been best posted under... Which is why I went with the more general board, I hope it's okay. This is something that's extremely hard for me to talk about as I've been scared/ashamed of this...

    Little insight into me, one of my episodes

    My post from another forum: I've had that on 1 episode of 5 and when I relapse the memories stick with me. I wasn't so much a super solider but had been selected to take mind altering drugs. The drugs effected people depending on their personality, you turned into what would be described as an...
