    I think I'm losing it

    I'm so fucked up I don't know how to think straight anymore. My mom has bpd and I'm scared I might be headed the same way. I started self-harming when I was 13, developed disordered eating and social anxiety later on. I'm 23 now and I can't handle life or work or social relationships. Every...

    Notes from the ship

    voices saying they are officers of the law and that they are taking me into captivity to rape me!!! They control people with authority given to them by rape and captivity. Making them the lowest type of human there is in my mind. Hallucinations time and time again don't check out, as the real...

    What are you panicking about?

    People are always surprised when I say that I'm not a confident person, but it's absolutely true. I'm very good, most of the time, at hiding it, at acting, as I had to do every single day as a teacher. I NEVER, in 37 years of teaching, applied for a promotion because I knew that I wouldn't have...
