    I've been having quite a bit of ringing in my ears lately. Thought it was congestion, but then noticed it seems to go along with feeling more anxious, agitated, and paranoid. Anyone else have this?

    I hear a voice in my mind.

    I think it's mine. I think I hear a voice, therefore it has to be mine. Once in a while I hear my name, but it sounds distant. When I think a voice which sounds like mine and talks, it repeats the same words I speak one in my mind and one from my mouth. I had a accident and fell on my head, ever...

    I have given up

    The stigma and judgemental comments come from half of my family. I am so good at presenting a good front and try so hard to be so good and so supportive of my family. I do not want them to feel sorry for me or make any special steps. This has left me so alone and abandoned. My daughter wants...

    Not here really

    OK I've drunk a lot this evening and tomorrow I'll regret this. I am alive because I agreed, in my time between lives, that I would support my husband to move forward from the "Warrior mode" he had been in for many years. He had done lifetime after lifetime as a soldier or warrior. Now that...

    Should I ask for my antidepressant to be upped?

    Been taking 50mg of Sertraline for about a month now. There hasn't been any positive changes so far, just feel a little more 'moody' to be honest - not 100% sure if it's an effect of the medication or just a worsening of my disorder. I really can't be bothered to go into the doctors just to...
