    I'm losing my mind.

    Who contributed you as a child? Here is my story, what is yours?

    I have been told by my counsellor that as I have been controlled as a child, I attract control freaks. This isn't going to be an easy one for me to talk about, but here goes. My mother controlled me as a child. When I left home she went very off with me and the relationship broke down. She...

    Hello everyone! Here's my story of how I got the voices

    I forget when but I became a remote viewer some odd amount of time ago. I think last year. I don't want to sit here and explain what remote viewing is but long story short, I was always in awe of other viewers using it for communication and I set about my own way to use it for communication. I...

    I have a YouTube channel that some of you might relate to.

    I started a Youtube Channel that deals with depressing topics like being lonely, being ugly, what it's like not having any friends, constantly being rejected romantically and platonically, etc. I have had depression for a long time and I know that during certain days when things got very bad, I...

I'm trapped in a "treatment" center which has become part of the problem instead of part of the solution. I'm not physically stuck there, but I can't in practical terms give it up. Too...
