    Why I live?

    I wonder lately why I am living? What is all the sense. I am useless, good for no one. Dont have a job, although I am sane enough to work and qualified. No one is looking for me, asking how I am. I am alone, even if living among people. Feel like a living dead. All days are the same, nothing to...

    Aren't you hated by your parents, friends, partners or whatever?

    Hey guys! Don't your parents, friends, partners.....hate you? Personally I think I'm superior, that they can't compete with me, and I'm convinced that they don't feel nothing of their existence for real, that their emotions are fake, not true. Not how they should be. They live in a fake...

    Please help and write

    Our old psychiatric unit has closed and a brand new one was opened this year for both sexes in Lancaster. Suddenly, with no consultation or anything, they have decided to make it all male. Their logic is that if a man needs a bed and there is only a female one, then he will be sent elsewhere...

    Clinical Psychologists

    ...I really don't like it. It's B.S. C.B.T is pretty much all they do. I don't think C.B.T should require a 3 year psych degree, followed by an assistant job, followed by another 3 year DPsych. And they tick boxes. And ask stupid questions like ''Are you religious?'' when they suspect...
