    I had a strong belief for the past 6 years that it was the ear's balance system not the cochlea that was responsible for auditory hallucinations like voices. I put it together in my head that unexplained science like gravity, dreaming, schizoid, were all connected and that the balance system was...

    Hi, I'm new and not really sure what I'm doing

    Hi, I'm not entirely sure what I hope to get out of this but I think speaking to others with similar issues as me could help. At least make me feel less alone, which would be great and I suppose helpful in itself. I have never been officially diagnosed as I just keep putting it off (I know...

    Two psychiatrists and two psychologists. I've been going to my current psychiatrist for a number of months now, and it feels like it's all been for nothing. I started going to this second psychologist a number of weeks back, and it also feels like it's all been for nothing. All these pills. I'm...
