Advice on my living situation.

Postby HelloKittylol » Wed Oct 06, 2021 8:18 pm

Hello! Please tell me, if this is the wrong place for me to say those things or if I did something wrong, if so I wholeheartedly apologize. My personal hopes are that I would be able to find someone who has gone through the same and who found a possible solution for themselves, that I could try. After many therapists and medication, I thought that this would be the best way to better my life quality. Honestly, I'm just heavily frustrated, and it makes my life a living hell, especially since I can't leave the house alone, which leaves nothing else to cope or "waste" my time on.

To try my best and describe what I am even rambling about, I can't go after any of my free time activities that I used to adore so much. Whenever I try to do any of these, even if it's just a very easy to go game or a drawing that is simply made for fun, I eventually get to a point where the voices and feelings join in. They make me believe that I am bad in everything that I even attempt at doing. This really doesn't sound as bad as it is for me personally, it's hard to put my initial thoughts and feelings that I feel in that very moment into words. The feelings and thoughts are so loud and extreme that they leave me like hurting myself or even ending it every time. I just can't go on like this anymore, people keep on finding me curled up in closets sobbing and screaming viciously, I don't want people and myself to keep on living this way.

I'm wholeheartedly sorry, but I just really hope that somebody is able to give me some advice.
(Also, as stupid as it sounds, please hold yourself back from making fun of me)

Hello, and welcome!

When you say voices, do you mean internal, it what seems to be audible? And have your seen a professional caregiver about this?
Tell someone you love them today, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also confusing and terrifying.

Hey, I am sorry to hear you're going through this feelings, and I suppose I understand some of what you said. I, too, hear voices that sometimes kill my self esteem and pleasure in doing things I enjoy, and I have been afraid to leave the house in the past, too. Honestly, there is no easy solution except to keep trying therapy and medication, although my family and religious community also helped me a lot. Feel free to pm me If you want to talk.

I, thank goodness, do not know anything about voices and so on, and therefore can't give you any advice, how to stop them, sorry! But nevertheless I'd try to boost my self-confidence, if I were in a situation, like you described. For example your drawings: Do you think, it could help, to get other peoples opinion about whether they're good or not? For it sounds to me, like the voices want to see you down at any cost, so they would — obviously — gave only the worst of views. But if you start to realize, that other (hopefully more kind) people around you appreciated your drawings (or, for example, enjoyed your company in one or another game, you played with them, even if it's "only" a multiplayer-online-game… maybe that'll stop you — no, not in hearing that voices — but in believing their lies and insults. Just a thought. :) And sorry if it isn't the kind of help, you hoped for. Wish you good luck on your further way.
