    Do you think hearing voices is always a symptom of insanity or not?

    I had a literal voice in my head every time I had a psychosis, but when not actually in a psychosis it just became more of a personality living in me. Anyway, I am writing about my experiences about escaping insanity in a web-page book "How to Escape Insanity" (easily googled). Do you think...

    My diagnosis story

    Experts will probably argue with me but thinking back, the first signs of a disorder were apparent around age 10. I remember family members would call me 'sour puss'. I often felt down BUT my moods varied a lot. I knew I had some problems specifically related to my moods but over the years...

    Upset with families response

    When I was 19 I tried to end my life. I went into my Mum's room and told her what I had done. She shouted at me and took me to the hospital. My younger sister was there and cried and later went to the hospital to comfort my mum. Both ignored me and did not say anything to me at all. For a week...

    Summoning Angels to work miracles with your voices pt2

    I feel kind of bad for everyone else because they may or may not have the protection I get. I am being 100% honest when I say that calling on this Angel to deal with my voices causes a response in them that would definitely not exist otherwise. For example, I might say " Angel, put my ears to...

    Manipulation / bpd / something else?

    Does anyone else do this? I need to be asked a direct question for a honest response out of me. I by no means lie for personal gain or anything malicious. But I tend to lead people to assumptions and let others view it as they want. Like , if I catch wind of something I tend to play dumb and...

    Another Way of Looking at Fatigue and Depression

    Mutiny of the Soul "What if there is something so fundamentally wrong with the world, the lives, and the way of being offered us, that withdrawal is the only sane response? Withdrawal, followed by a reentry into a world, a life, and a way of being wholly different from the one left behind?"

    Oxytocin as a medicine for PTSD?

    It seems the hormone oxytocin helps regulate a lot of the responses in PTSD, and perhaps could be used to reshape the response to past stressful stimuli. Worth keeping an eye on, although it will probably be years before this research is developed into a medication...
