    I hate myself. things have become too wrong and too broken and I don't have anyone to turn to. No one! Hi I don't know if this is appropriate or relevant for this part of the forum because I don't feel I have just one problem. In fact that's part of the problem. If I had just one affliction...

    How do I allow myself to cope?

    This may be a stupid question, but how do I allow myself to cope? I've had a prolonged period of suicidality. Don't get me wrong, I still think about it, but it's not quite as intense as it was. (I hope I'm not jinxing things). I'm doing ok at the moment. Just ok, nothing more. I'm...

    Feeling better today...having weird thoughts though (nothing bad)

    :( I still feel like I am making this up in my head. Are these urges real? Why do I get them? Are they just going to go away like the other things I have obsessed about, then dropped once I got tired of them? They feel different, they come without warning. I don't know what is real anymore. I am...

    How can I allow myself to enjoy myself?

    How can I allow myself to enjoy myself? I quit/ abandoned my job which was the most stupid mistake. It was very stupid and very irresponsible but my anxiety was sky high and I just wanted relief which never came of course. I'm not asking for sympathy for that. I've been without work one month...

    Angry Voices

    I hear angry voices all the time accusing me of being stupid and worthless. Their anger is filled with hate. Have heard them most of my life. Long ago, I use to wander the hills alone and listen to the voices whisper to me, it was pleasant, was not afraid. I dared not tell my psychiatrist, as...

    Nurse Practitioner

    Today I met the nurse practitioner who has been assigned to take over from my psychiatrist, whom I did NOT wish to leave but the clinic has given him other work.
