    New realization-the nature of the voice

    I just realized something important while I was lying awake in bed last night. Background: In my head what happens is that I will have an explicit thought (in my own voice). The voice will then apparently "comment" on that thought. The "comments" are usually very negative and take on a...

    I really want to give up

    I'm sick of everything in my life. I'm sick of being constantly afraid, of having a lump in my throat, of wanting to scream until this feeling leaves my head forever. I want to end my life but I'm too scared to do that too. I'm jealous of people who know the difference between reality and not...

    What can you do to prevent a second episode of psychosis?

    Besides avoiding drugs and stressful situations I'd like to know what else can I do to prevent a second episode in the future. And does experiencing psychosis mean you are more prone to have schizophrenia?

    Support for people who feel suicidal because of debilitating anamoalistic experiences like synchronicity and psychic experiences.

    Many people with ocd and mental illnesses suffer from strange and debilitating coincidence and synchronicities that we can't explain, and they feel telepathic and psychic like, or like we're manifesting it with our thoughts. They scare us and cause depression and anger. Many of us are fighting...
