    I'm hearing voices again.

    They're calling my name this time. I've been sleeping with a blade and use it to gain sleep. I feel suffocated. I miss what little friends I have. I just want to talk to someone to get my mind off things. To feel human. I don't want to talk about what's bothering me. No. That...

    When I feel like this I take vitamin B - 3

    heaping tablespoons of brewers yeast in a big glass of water. I like brewers yeast because it is a natural source of vitamin B, which means it is easy for the body to assimilate, it provides the full spectrum of B vitamins, and it is cheap. Zinc is a catalysis for vitamin B - I...
