I don't know where my delusions come from.

When I was 8, I would get visions of people, usually my classmates watching me through my house's windows. I knew it was just my imagination, and I was playing 'pretend' I guess, but then my classmates would say things that made me believe they really are watching me.

Then, when I was 11, I developed this fear that people were reading my mind because I was terrified of people knowing that I was gay. ...

So I learned not to tell others about my true self.

Good morning, Everyone! This may be a bit long, but maybe others can relate.

I'm 35 and I am someone that has always had issues with relating to others because all through my life, I was never really able to "feel" certain emotions. Some of these include happiness, excitement, being able to truly laugh, love, being able to form a real connection to anyone or anything along those lines. The feelings that I have always ...

Unsure of Where to Put This

Ever since I was 10, there has been this voice/other person residing inside of me. When we met, he told me his name was Alex and that he's always been inside of me but waited for the right time for us to meet. In my mind, he appears as male, around 6ft 1 with blonde, short hair and blue eyes. He has a seperate personality from mind, even a seperate voice for when he speaks ...

Didn't know where to put this...

So I went to the GP because I was certain that I had depression. He told me it was mild depression. But I'm sure it's more than mild depression, because I've felt this way for almost 5 years now, and things a progressively getting worse. Especially the suicidal thoughts and irritability. Then there's the fact that sometimes have thoughts of hurting myself and other people. Plus constant self-harm thoughts and temptations I just can't get ...

*** How are you feeling today? ***

New thread for those of you who hang out here and want to express how you feel today without making a new thread.

Me? I'm doing ok. Taking care of a Mom with dementia takes its toll, and occasionally I am depressed and/or anxious, but today I am ok.

Having An Emotional Day *Maybe Tiggering*

Hello Everyone
I got my things out of storage a couple days ago after having them in storage for a year so I started to unpack some of it today. I had to stop with how I was getting too emotional over it with how some things had belonged to my mum or my gamma or my favorite uncle. And they all passed away so unpacking everything was making me emotional. Somethings are staying packed ...

Help with medication please. Lamotrigine

I was unsure where to write this so sorry if its in the wrong section.

Im confused over my lamotrigine tablets.
My boxes all seem to come different.

Lamotrigine accord
Lamotrigine teva
Lamotrigine bristol labs
Lamotrigine milpharm

Why all different? Why not just Lamotrigine?
Are they from different places, or altogether different meds?

I have nothing and want to give up...TW?

Hey guys.
Haven't written here in a while. I have reached my breaking point. I am 20 and my parents have given me a lot in my life. Sadly, maybe I was a little too dependent. They've caught wind of me talking to an ex whom they don't fancy...we've gone through a lot, including physical fights.

Essentially, now I have a place to sleep and that is it. No phone, no car, no cash. My ...

What's wrong?

I know people on the forum cannot diagnose me and I do not see this thread as a professional diagnosis replacement. But I'd like to hear outside opinions on what might be wrong with me and what would the best way of seeking help be. This is not a single issue, but a set of issues that seem to be related (or maybe not).

I've been feeling like the whole existence, the universe, human beings, ...

Seeing faces of other people and feeling like they're yours?

Does anyone experience seeing vivid faces of other people (that you know in real life or off TV) and actually feeling like they're yours whenever you interact, and that other people are reacting to you as if you are these other people? What is this?
