    I just can't cope with my life

    Okay, so it's no surprise to most of you that I've been really struggling these last few weeks - my symptoms are getting weirder and more prevelent. I've tried twice now to go off on a break from things to try and help - mostly to try and keep me out of hospital. Whilst I'm away I'm pretty...

    Intrusive thoughts

    I keep having a really random intrusive thought; don't know if I can say it here or if it is going to much into detail. It's not so much a suicidal thought as I don't want to do it to kill myself.. its just a damn stupid idea. I have urges to run away all the time and do stupid things.. I...

    Urges.. breathe.. resist..

    I'm really struggling with urges. Got them last night, and the same thing's happening now. I've not had urges like this for a long time. The last time I gave into them was January, so it's nearly been a year. And previous to January, it had been another year since I gave in. One time in two...
