    I looked this up and I think it’s what’s wrong with me. They say I have overactive imagination or that I have bipolar disorder, but the meds don’t work. I was about eight when it Started, fits of mania followed by long depressive slumps, and inbetween, the voices. One tells me to hurt myself...

    My voices have human like traits, and also seem to control my feelings - do yours?

    My voices have human like traits, and also seem to control my feelings - do yours? Some of my voices tell me their names, and they refer to each other by those names. But the names they use are those of people I have known. I think they intentionally do this as part of an ongoing attempt to...

    labels and names

    Memory Problems

    First post so I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, I'm a 16 year old male and for about the last six months my memory has gotten pretty bad.
