    Taking back my FB page

    I love having friends from all over! But my mother-in-law floods FB with Trump & etc memes and religious memes and there are a few other individuals as well. So I am happy to say I have managed to block the sites those posts originate from. And it has worked! Now there are still a few people...

    Insomnia, again

    Can't sleep again. Thought it'd gotten better cos I slept OK a few nights last week but it's back to the night time panic attacks when my head hits the pillow, if I get that far and go to bed to begin with. Every time I get left alone with my thoughts it feels like a lead weight and I can't cry...

    Is it possible to have a psychotic experience and not know what it was?

    Is it possible to have a psychotic experience and not know what it was? Long story short, I think I might have been phychotic in the past but I'm not sure. I'd go into details but I'm feeling squiggly and odd. I feel so weird. But yeah. Is it possible? I didn't know what a psychotic episode...
