    In the psych hospital

    I've not posted lately cause I am in the psychiatric hospital. It's crap in here. The only good thing you can say about it is that it's difficult to hurt myself in here.(I was brought in because of uncontrollable self harm)

    Waking nightmares

    I keep having unwanted, horrible waking nightmares that I can’t control or stop. It’s driving me crazy! I don’t know what to do! Dr will just give me more pills and refer me to iTalk. Which is no good for me.

    Anybody find themselves hating everything and everyone?

    Title sounds awful, and on good days I consider myself a joyful person, but I really suffer on bad days where I just feel like I hate everyone.
