    'Smile, it might never happen'

    Now I’ve never been one for smiling, I’m just not a naturally smiley person. If I had a penny for every time someone told me to smile or cheer up I’d be rich. And it boils my blood! In fact it’s nearly come to blows when I was a lot younger and quicker to react. What gives people the right to...

    Stuck

    I don't know what to do. I'm grew up in an abusive house, and have become suicidal, just desperate to get out. I landed myself in this treatment center. I'm a day client here and, but it's been counter productive since the beginning. I feel my PTSD getting worse and worse. The doctor, not only...

    Am I alone?

    I don't even know what to say. I've been trying and trying. Nothing seems to help. I've been "getting help" for nearly 15 years now and I guess I've made progress, but this? Sure there are stresses but I don't understand how it got this bad. Anxiety has turned to torturing my body as well as my...

    Symptoms of Schizophrenia

    What are the typical schizophrenia symptoms?! As I learned with my last gf, her symptoms were: hearing and seeing things, poor hygiene, sleeping longer than the usual and lazy, monotone talk, not paying attention but actually did and replied to me hours later from what I said, hand gestures...

    Feel like giving up

    How can there be over seven billion people in the world, yet I couldn't feel more alone on mars. I'm falling back into depression again, but this time I don't think I can handle it. Last time ended up with 5 hospital admissions, and being admitted to a mental health hospital after trying to...

    Feeling trapped - anyone else?

    I have this feeling all the time - well not ALL the time but several times a day. It's like I become hyper-aware that I'm trapped in this individual consciousness and it seems utterly bizarre. Bizarre that I could be a human being with individual thoughts and sensations - essentially completely...

    New and Struggling

    Hello all. I'm new to this forum but not to SI. I did it routinely for over 18years before getting a handle on it a rough go to say the least. But lately it just seems like the struggle I went thru was wasted. it's a long story. Part of getting thru it for me was finally be dx'ed as being on...
