    What if you don't want to quit?

    I've spent a lot of time thinking about this and trying to talk it over with my therapist, but I feel like I'm getting nowhere. Everytime I bring up my self harm with my therapist she talks about "reasons not to" and everytime I can only come up with reasons that have to do with other people...

    Bad Habits

    Mine was smoking cigarettes, but when I quit I turned to marijuana. When I had to quit that to get a job (and my doctor drug tests for some of the medication I'm on) I turned to alcohol. We're all dependent on something. What's your bad habit?

    Do I have OCD? Can you tell me?

    I could talk for days about the mental battle I have been on for a crazy year and a half, so I’ll keep it as short as I can to start and elaborate in detail if asked any questions. I believe I have some type of ocd but im not sure. I spent 2 weeks in the hospital a year ago with extreme...

    I want to quit my meds. This time for real.

    I'm fat. I'm ugly. I can't change my ugliness but at least I can (probably) change my fatness. I want to quit taking my meds. I'm on 15 mg of mirtazapin and a half of 50 mg of levomepormazin. I take both at night and without it I have terrible insomnia. But I decided to not give a damn anymore...

    I'm not going out in public anymore

    I made up my mind. I used to be a hikikomori (someone who isolates from the world.). I would stay locked inside for months. We went out today and I saw my reflection in public. I'm so ugly and fat. I gained so much weight from these meds. I can't quit them because I need them to sleep at night...
