    So, I'm not very good at debating with others, I feel, because I take everything so personally and feel attacked. But, that doesn't stop me from speaking my mind. But during the debate, especially if I sense any hostility from the other(s), I feel like I'm stupid and wrong. So I try to step back...

    Do good people have bad thoughts about others?

    I'm very liberal, I try and treat people as I'd expect to be treated myself but I still occasionally get bad or prejudicial thoughts about people based on appearance etc. They occasionally just flash up in my mind and I have to tell myself that's a horrible thing to think. I wonder sometimes if...

    Today I learned a new word for one of my favorite self harm methods. Rumination. Circled thoughts or conversations that loop and loop to be endlessly analyzed. I could have done this. I shouldn't have said that. I think my brain is a little broken in that it can't let those negative moments go...

    Anyone ever think they can hear peoples thoughts?

    Hey, I have schizophrenia. At a time before I was diagnosed, I used to lay down, and I'd be really h*rny, so I would try to talk to people around my development, through my mind. .. And its one of those things like the more imaginative you are and want it to work the more it works. I thought...

    Thinking Problems

    Hello everyone. Nowadays I've come to find out something really strange. I wanna know if it's a problem of mine, a problem of people with mental difficulties or even healthy people experience it.

    Unfortunately I have been to quite a few of these. They have always been for a techincal role. I know it's kind of Dragons Den situation asking people to make quite a big financial gamble on me, but still I feel like I am always elimated based on some kind of personal bias on behalf of the...

    I am in a really bad place, my BPD has taken control over me (at least that’s how it feels lately). I feel very alone in this and joined because I need to talk to people who relate to my struggles and can possibly offer advice. Thank you

    Telling People About Your Disorder

    Hello. My name is Chris.

    Hello, My name is Chris and I am 31 years of age. I suffer from depression and I don't have any motivation at all. I just can not be bothered mixing with people and getting know anyone.

    What does anxiety feel like?

    I have struggled with anxiety for a lot of years and it's awful. And i think the worst part of it is to try to explain to people what i feels like..I would describe it as drowning inside and out, it so much more awful then people think. How would you describe it?

    Standing up to bullies

    Training/courses to help with social skills?

    It seems a lot of advice aimed at those with social issues is aimed at those who have issues in terms of approaching new people, making conversation etc. That's not my problem though. I don't have any issue with approaching people and talking to them. The problem is that nothing ever seems to...
