    First Post - First time admitting self harm

    I am struggling with self harm. In retrospect, I think I have always self harmed, just in a milder, non traditional format. And I have done this because I don't like myself or I want to hurt myself in someway. Now I am 34, almost 35. I have progressed to a more traditional form of self harm...

    I wanted to say a thank you to people on this forum because it has been such a great support tool for me. It's very difficult for me to vent or seek advice with people in the real world if I am struggling, so this is a really important place for me. Most of the time people here try to help and...

    Do Your Voices Seem Like a Real Person?

    Been to my doctor to tell her my voices are getting more vindictive. She said I need to get back into the mental health system. I tried to tell her what the voices were doing. My voices seem to be a real person. I feel like there is someone living in my body. They are playing a nasty game with...

    DMT trip in my sleep.

    This experience us not translate able in this form. Let me say, I hate all you telepaths. If I could know if the aliens weren't real people and just borrowing them in other ways they can create scenes I would love their guts right out of them. I just had the single most amazing experience of my...

    Don’t know if voices are real or not

    So I’m 29, and when I was a kid I would hear a voice or see something but our house was also really haunted so I wrote it off (other family members had similar experiences) But in the past three years, I hear strange (mulitple) voices when there is white noise. It sounds like people talking and...

    Overwhelmed with Life, diagnosis and myself!

    Hi, I'm coming to terms with a recent diagnosis. It is both a relief and disappointment; explains a lifetime of suffering and seems to validate my fear that 'it's never going to get better', or 'this is as good as it gets'. I'm ... tired mostly ... trying to convince myself that, this time, this...

    So sorry to be a nuisance here...

    Something has been bothering me for a while now. I go to YouTube to get rid of the urges I have and I find a video of some teenager making a "flamethrower"--and I won't explain how this is done because I am sure we all have done it or know about that. Anyhow, that isn't the important part. I...

    Fading out slowly.

    So some of you might remember I was posting here quite a lot a few months back. I've been hearing voices for about a year and half, not schizophrenic, more an extreme stress reaction....I'm quite ill physically, fibromyalgia, so spent too much time too isolated, taking strong pain medication or...

    Feels like I am the only one here...

    Posting yet again. Still wondering if this is all real or if I will eventually get bored of it and move on to obsessing about something else. It sure FEELS real. Had an urge just about 10 minutes ago but was able to squash it. The ONLY reason I don't burn something all day long (that sounds...

    Do real friendships exist?

    I don't know, I never had real friends, even if there were people who didn't hate me, they didn't want to have something to do with me. Even if there were people who were fine with talking to me sometimes or meeting me sometimes (very rare), I always felt like there were giant emotional...

    Help i think I need to go into hospital

    Hey I overdosed about five weeks ago, I was so confused and scared. I'd been hearing voices and hallucinating, I perceived these voices as real people and as they had abused me rigourously, I lost my mind. To me, they are spirit guides,punishing me in the most brutal,sadistic fashion, I honestly...
