    PTSD and Flying Into the Sun

I'm going to tell you the brief version of my story. I was a victim of emotional abuse as a child. My mother put me under an intense...

    A Really Hard Day

    I woke up feeling like shit today. Didn't want to wake up. Just wanted to sleep all day. Didn't want it to be the anniversary of my cousin's murder. I got up too late to have a shower, and I just could not move my body fast enough. I didn't have time to finish my smoothie, or cut up veggies...

    Seeing people's faces as caricature-like

    Hi, I signed up because I have something I recently realized is a problem and I can't find anything on it anywhere. I don't want to go to a doctor but just want to know if someone here is familiar with it and knows what it is. For my whole life, the way I see faces has been weird. I see them...

    Nothing to live for

    First of all, I don't want to kill myself. But I feel like my life has reached some kind of critical point where I am at my absolute worst.

    I wish i know what's wrong with me

    Hi everyone, I've been wondering if i really have a mild case of social anxiety or not. For some reason, i can't talk to anyone without my voice dying on me. I thought it was because i was sick at first, but i realized i could talk to myself just fine. Is this normal for social anxiety?

    Can Your Voices Pronounce H and S sounds?

    This is just an oddity that I just realized I hadn't asked anyone about. The voices seem to have difficulty with these two letters "H" and "S". When they do pronounce them they sound more like radio static or tv snow as an approximation.
