Real friends are great

  1. Well, you might have read that my only/best friends all left for differents states. I called myself friendless, but now people are talking to me on the net-my net friends-ignoring the fact that I do the wrong thing at the wrong time. This is a suprise to me. I though for sure thay would shun me bcause of my problems, some people would. Now I know where my true friends are. Even after I was offline for months they did not question me. Not 100% of them know me-people have been registering as new members-but I was suprised & thankfull for thier positivity. I feel accepted there & comfortable talking to the people there. This is a nice suprised. :biggrin:

    Hi, My names Matt, I'm new on here but I know the people on here are some of the greatest and friendliest people you will ever talk to, if your wondering about the Damian thing It's what I call the guy in my head... I dont usually talk about him, other than to my new girlfriend (magpie she's the best person on here, one of the moderators) I've known her for just around a year now, she doesn't think she's anything special but if she met herself she'd know why she is Hehe. If you ever wanna chat about anything at all just messege me and I'll talk, but for some reason I cant talk on chat so I'm afraid it shall all have to be done via pm or posting :D
     
  3. I took a long time to try chatroom myself & now that I do I don't know what to say when I'm there. Due to my posts here I think everyone thinks I'm weird/crazy. It's cool though & I'll pm you when I can think of intresting things to talk about, my mind is so cluttered with my probs it's hard to really speak to anyone without feeling foolish/stupid. But thanx for the post. My friends call me Joe, feel free. Hope things are doing well 4 you and peace out. :ninja: :cool:

    Well your talking to someone with a voice in his head that tells him things he doesn't want to hear... I'll never judge anyone... And I'll never think anyone to be weird :D
     
  5. I used to hear voices that told me they were real people & that everyone was out to get me. Luckily I found a med to make that all go away, though it took around 3 years to find the med. I can relate to what you're going through.

    Wow! Thats so weird cause I've just been talking to my girlfriend about my voice and I said I'm gonna scower this site looking for someone who I can relate to who has the same problem, ends up the first person I messeged :D
     
  7. Hey, I'll do anything I can to help. I know how it can be with the auditory hallutionations(voices). The thing is, you can't let them affect you/your actions. They are not stronger than you(took me a long time to figure that out). Everyone has a purpose here in life, all you have to do is figure out what it is if you don't already know, that is. Then you set your goals and do your best to accomplish it. I'm glad to be of any help at all, so feel free to talk to me, even if you have to use PM. Take care and I hope your "condition" only improves(man I went through years of hell b4 mine did! I wouldn't wish that experience upon my worst enemy).

    I really wanna just say thankyou, The 'voice' used to always be controlable to an extent, it was always there but I could ignore it to an extent. But today It really did just over power me.

    It seemed like the harder I tried to fight it the worse it got.
     
  9. Oh man! When I tried to get away from my voices they would always get my attn by telling me things that were believable & in some cases even true
    But it was just my own brain working/turning against me. I was living in constant fear. What's more is the voice(s) loved to cuss me out/insult me & it would even echo at times. :eek:hmy:

    I completly know what your on about, I think the first time I started hearing them was just before my parentss split up, And the voices were actually saying there gonna split up, they dont love you anymore ect. And well when they did split up I started wondering was the other things true, it was a really depressing time for me... I didn't leave my room much I didn't talk to anyone for about 6 months...
     
  11. Yeah during my worst episodes I would not want to talk to anyone as well. I did't even want to talk to the voices in my head, but they would talk to me anyway in an attempt to drive me over the edge. What I learned is that you can't let them beat you, you have to be strong & figure out ways of avoiding them.Entirely, if possible.

    Well, at least you know how hard it is, some people just wouldn't understand.

    I dont know If this has ever happened to you or not, but the voice in your head is you.... Mine is me, It's clearly my voice... Thats what worries me the most about it :/

  13. I had 3 voices who would work as a team to disturb me: me, myself & I. It's so bizzare that it's impossible to understand unless your going/have been through it. It's like haVING PEOPLE IN YOUR MIND WHO HAVE ALL ACCESS TO EVERYTHING, thought, memories, emotions, etc.
