    Disinherited because of mental illness

    Possible early signs of schizophrenia

    Ever since last year I've had a suspicion that my roommates at college are spying on me. I believe they're tracking every keystroke I make on my computer (I see weird logs in my login history, which indicate that the lid could have been opened physically, but I don't know if it's real or if it's...

    Once Upon A Time...

    I would like to tell you a story, of a young girl growing up in a big, crazy family. She was the eldest girl and had this curse of thinking about and analysing things very deeply, from a young age. She saw people's emotions even when they tried to hide it. She could sense pain and took it upon...

    Thoughts about killing my brother.

    I've been thinking about this for awhile now. The reason why is I want to make him pay for all the things he's done and said to me no matter if it was old and put away in the past. I've already made the decision to cut him out of my life completely when I leave and move out, but I think that's...
