    Got to see Second Opinion Doctor, 46 mile round trip.

    Because my Community Treatment Order has been renewed again after spending 6 weeks in hospital I'm summoned to see the Second Opinion Doctor which would be no problem if it was in my town I would go but its 23 miles away and 1 and 20 minute bus journey which I think is totally unreasonable...

    How do I get over this mental problem?

    So basically, I encountered someone on a forum website, and it's like the guy's the smartest person in the world. He always knows how to present himself, he always knows his stuff, and he always wins debates. It's like he's the smartest person in the world. Ever since I looked at his posts, I've...

    Hi!

    Hi there :) I'm new to the forum, nice to meet you guys! I was looking for a place where I could talk about my well-being, issues and other problems that might arise since I barely have the feeling I could talk to anyone about it in my personal life who either shrug it off or have a negative...

    Waste of time

    Does anyone else think this place is a waste of fucking time? I'm not having a go but people just seem to respond to each other telling them what not to do. Clearly everyone on here has problems so why would they give an other person advice when they're hardly in the position to do so. Also in...

    Been a little while

    I will be honest. I finished my therapy course and have tried to put it all out of my mind which worked in the short term... I had been active in another forum about completely different things. I voiced an opinion and started an all out war basically because they didn't like my opinion. To be...

    Is my anxiety worsening?

    Samaritans ending calls

    I phone the UK Samaritans a lot at the moment, on average a few times a week. Yes, I do feel suicidal, I'm diagnosed autistic and have chronic depression and anxiety - just to clarify that I'm not someone who just phones "for a chat" although I usually speak in a very matter-of-fact way, only...

    Your opinion on self-mummification of Buddhist/Tibetan monks?

    It blows my mind to think of, for example, adhering to a wood eating diet made up of salt, nuts, seeds, roots, pine bark & urushi tea (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhist_mummies). :yuck:?! These particular monks in Japan would then be BURIED ALIVE :scared: in a pine-wood box full of salt...

    Changing an Abusive Relationship

When a voice makes a remark, note your body language and that of other people. Note what kind of environment you...

    How is low self-esteem manifested? At the heart of your self-esteem are your core beliefs about the kind of person you are. If you have low self-esteem these beliefs will be mainly negative, and negative beliefs are expressed in many ways. In your thoughts about yourself you're likely to be...

    How to Talk to Voices

    This is the process I have followed that has taken me from an abusive situation with voices to one that is supportive. 1. Search - look for voices that have the most potential to talk with. Your natural reaction will be to ignore the hostile voices and look for the least hostile. In my opinion...
