I have good thought and bad thought about meeting new people , my mental health making me paranoid of just about everyone and everything . I'm not a stupid person but identifying ones illness is difficult and I just can't find the answer I desperately seek , going around in circles without a clue in reality of what's going on inside my head.

I will try reply to this the best way i can think

you have 2 options:

1 is do not meet new people the pros are this are you wont get hurt, they wont reject you, wont make you feel like shit you will go through life not experiencing the true beauty of the wide range of amazing people sure you will find shit people but you simply discard them i am not sure if you collected pokemon cards but the premise is you open your packs of cards some are terrible and you will have multiple of them so you through them away then the more rare they are the better they are they are the people you want to meet who will be around and be positive and in other words bring you up not bring you down.

2 is accepting that you will meet shitty people but you will find your people that are on your level who you can relate to

as for your how do i tell people to be honest i just say to people this is what i suffer with thats why i do x and y it doesnt excuse it but just to let you know i suffer with depression/suicide ideation

Thank you for your kind words . I find it easier to speak to people I know these days but I rarely get chance to speak to or find real friends. The cyber world is good for a chat but it isn't everything or physical life. I think I'm at a low point in my life and need to find some assuring talk. It is difficult to carry on chasing imagination.

thats great you are thinking of meeting new people
I would say there is no need to reveal your diagnosis
not unless you know the person very well
and maybe over a long period of time

most people I know
have come to know that I have mental health issues
but they dont know my exact diagnosis

I take an interest in them
rather than it all being about myself

cyber world is a different friend but you need both imo for a good balance which is different for everyone what id recommend write a list of things you are interested in then find like minded people who share the same interest for example use this site if you are in the uk Meetup is a good option click on it if you are interested

well if you look in the hearing voices forum
you will find everyone is hearing different things

another person who hears voices
would not hear your voices

nobody else

your mind has made the voices to protect you from something else

My head feels dizzy with confusion , some of the voices want to help me and other voices want to hurt me and are strangely evil and torture my mind . I've not spoken to a real person so all the voices must be lying to me . My neurological process may be protecting me but if that is the case it is sending me nutz for real. My family life is suffering , house a mess and I've had enough of life now for real.

I think really you need to phone the emergency services
they will be nice to you and get you some medicine
then you can get back to us about how it went

there are people here through the night

Not that's what the voices want , they want to make me think I'm losing my mind.
