Mom hears "gods" voice but it sounds to me like its not God

I don't doubt that she does hear His voice but there are other voices that tell her to give people money even though she is barely making it her self and she tithes also. She says that she was told that someone was praying prayers against her. Recently a lady she knows got hurt and she said that she prayed she would feel better. But a voice which I have been trying to convince her ...

Does my advisor secretly hate me?

Long paranoid rant here...

I'm a college sophomore. I don't officially have a mental illness but this seemed like the place to ask this question.

I've been involved in undergraduate research (in a cancer research lab) since my freshman year. I barely ever see the main professor but I've been working under a postdoctoral researcher in his lab. She seemed really nice at first, but I feel like she has started hating me and making ...

Is this depression?

Is it going to get better?
I want to get better. Because right now,I am nothing. Literally feel like nothing. No emotions,no hope,no motivation...nothing. Right now i just want to sleep.
I've been like this for over a year now (yet i'm only 23), feeling empty and lost, constantly in fear. And it was getting worse. I tried talking to my friends,but i hardly could explain what was going on in my crazy head. No ...

Debilitating stress/anxiety at work, what can I do??! help..

First off, I have generalized/social anxiety. Yesterday I left work almost in tears because of how many times I screwed up. I can't seem to do anything right, and I'm just a cashier. Well, I work as a cashier sometimes, and most days I work in the pharmacy as a technician/cashier (I work at a drugstore). I find both equally as stressful because of dealing with people...I'm not good at talking to them and it ...

What is the way out?

Wanting Some Advice with Family Issues

I wasn't sure whether to put this in this section or the "Anti-Psychiatry" section, so feel free to move it...
I recently started the process of getting diagnosis/treatment, and my parents especially are not too excited about it. I got prescribed anti-anxiety med (which I'm feel really good about), but my parents are trying to discourage me from taking them. It's difficult, because they are the ones who would most likely be paying for all ...

i need some advice

the first thing i want to get off my chest is that when i first became depressed, i had prayed and wished that my family would die and if they didn't die immediately, i would pray that they get really sick and die. i know that's horrible, but i was so angry and sad. i didn't know that i was bipolar then. i thought i was "normal". i never truly believed in God, but now ...

protips on getting better

I am leaving this here to save people therapy bills and to get the help the mental health system makes you spend a lot of time for.

I will cover personality and also everything else but psychodynamic(talk therapy).

CBT is pretty much neccesary for most people in western society. Focusing on the breath activates parts of the prefrontal cortex required for introspection and recognising oneself better.
Once proficient in that which usually takes a couple ...
