  1. I'm not sure about an emotional support animal in the UK - I know that psychiatric service dogs aren't recognised here... But thanks for the replies everyone. I'll keep you updated if anything changes...
  2. I already volunteer at an animal shelter, which I love. But going back to an empty home is hard. I live in the UK. The landlord has said 'no pets' basically, when I suggested something like a small animal in a cage they still said no. Thank you everyone for your replies so far.
  3. I was relying on my landlord letting me have a pet. I knew having a pet would motivate me to get up. To go out to buy supplies for them. To have something which *needs* *me* to nurture and care and socialize with them. To have a responsibility to make me think twice before doing something. But they said no. I can't find anywhere else to live that allows pets that I can afford. I don't know what to do. I can't really get out of my contract. When I had pets they were my life, they cheered me up when I was down. I live alone now. I feel like I'm going to be lonely until I can get a job (never
  4. I've noticed over the last few years self injury is getting less and less effective at 'helping' me cope with things. I don't get any sort of 'help' or 'comfort' from it. Has anyone else experienced this?
  5. I keep forgetting to take my meds. Then I don't want to take my meds. It's a vicious circle...
  6. Thanks for the advice. I will certainly bring it up with a professional as I'm feeling more and more anxious about it. I think that a deadbolt would be a good idea.
  7. My situation is that I keep overeating. I've gained weight. I have never weighed this much. A few years ago I was diagnosed with anorexia. I'm just under overweight. I keep telling myself I need to get control back but I'm also worried that I will get sucked into ED behaviours (ie not eating enough) - but my behaviours at the moment are very ED'ed (but with overeating). I can't seem to find a happy medium. My body image is non existant. I get down. The voices I hear tell me I'm fat, worthless... They were part of the force behind my first anorexia episode. I guess I'm just reaching out
  8. I have to move house for reasons (sad reasons which I won't go into here). My biggest worry is that in the new place they will already have put cameras in there. Specifically I'm worried that my new landlord will put them there for them. All I know I can do is to search the place before I unpack. I'm also worried about people entering when I will be out to look around. Any tips to alleviate my worries? I don't know what to do. I already know I'm being watched here, thought moving might make it so that I don't have to worry about that because of a fresh start. Posting here I now rea
  9. Welcome to the forums Have you tried seeing if anyone in chat is around?
  10. I don't have sz as far as I know. I spoke to a professional and they are going to contact a psychiatrist to get medication adjusted. Just going to have to cope some how in the mean time and I'm not sure how. Thank you all for the replies.
  11. Welcome I hope you find the support you're looking for here.
  12. I don't have a Pdoc at the moment. I am just trying to wait things out until I can speak to someone but I don't know what they can do. Thanks for your reply
  13. I don't want to go into specifics but a voice told me to do something fairly dangerous today, and I feel bad for not going through with it but I also feel scared because I am worried it will happen again and my self preservation instinct won't work this time. I have also started to hear a new group of voices. With these I am having a very hard time concentrating and also find myself slipping back into a way of being that is not very productive or hygenic. My thoughts don't make sense half the time and I am very concerned about the things I was worried about RE being watched. I have recently se
  14. Hello, What do you do when you get a command to hurt yourself from your voices? I feel like if I don't do it something bad will happen when I have a voice telling me what to do. It tells me to do things from small rituals like turning the tap off and on a certain number of times to telling me I need to die / kill myself for reasons I'd rather not mention here. Yesterday I self injured for the first time in a long time because I felt like I had to, if I didn't something bad would happen. That's why I have to do everything this voice says. Please offer any advice you can... I am on meds
