    The night before last I prayed

    for protection from the Holy Spirit. I've been asking it to fill the wound the evil ones left in me and heal me. Since I asked it this, I have done my best to refuse contact with the demons since that night. I realized that I have not a single self-loathing thought since then...

    Does anybody have any advice on how to tell my

    parents that I'm concerned? I've been seeing, hearing, and feeling things, being paranoid like somebody's out to get me. I've been like this for about 4 years now, but my parents think I'm a hypochondriac and just doing it for the attention. How do I bring this up?

    I Have Celeste And Magdalen.

    For some years now, I've been hearing voices when no one else was there. They even had names: Celeste and Magdalen. I'd never know what they looked like, but I could have long conversations with them. I could argue with them, share jokes with them, and show them funny Youtube...

    I hate being alone, it's

    so quiet and there's nothing to block myself from myself. I can't sleep and there's no one who can understand how I feel about myself at times like this. I don't know whether I prefer it when I feel nothing at all or when I just cry, for hours letting everything out.
