    Feeling lost

    I'm sitting here in bed on a gorgeous cruise for my family vacation and all I can do is cry. I've been struggling this past year with every aspect of my life - I'm 2 years post grad, hate the career path my degree has given me, have zero personal relationships (the only one that gave me hope ended a couple of months ago and I can't move past it), my friends are too busy to do much of anything anymore, and I just feel like I have no idea where life could possibly be taking me that....

    what is wrong with me?

    Hello! I was wondering if anybody could tell me what I experienced last night. As a teenager in a highly competitive school, I have been very stressed lately and it has already shown on my physical health. However, last night when I was about to sleep my brain just switched into thinking thoughts that I could not control. I can not precisely recall what thoughts they were but I do remember that I was terrified and they were the thoughts I constantly tried to oppress. Naturally, I tried to oppress....

    I have been off of this for a while now, and i thought i was feeling better but i guess i was wrong. It always seems to come back when i know I'm feeling better , and the fact that I'm stressing over school doesn't help at all. I tend to keep myself busy and not think about stuff but thats all i think about , i try reading a book but my mind just wanders off. I honestly thought i was so much better but it comes and goes. I honestly don't know what to do , I'm trying my best just....

    What do you think about Mood Trackers?

    Hi there, I’ve had anxiety for several years, so I made an app ( for myself so I can see whether the things I’ve been trying (meditation, getting more exercise and better sleep, etc.) have been working. It’s kind of like a mood tracker, but it also uses my answers to tell me how my anxiety is progressing or getting worse (asks PHQ-9, GAD-7 at regular intervals). I showed it to a friend struggling with depression who thought it was pretty useful, so I’ve been working on this more and....

    Hi, Debbie. I hope you are doing well. I thought I would share that I have an appointment with a counseling center this Thursday at 11:00 am. I had therapy there 20 years ago, but the therapist I saw is no longer there. We like this group, so I am seeing the founding partner and president who is their chief psychologist. The center also has a NPP who prescribes medications, and she will call me tomorrow. I just can't ignore the manic phase of the bipolar disorder any longer. My wonderful wife....

    Anxiety and so much more

    Hello, I am not even sure what I am hoping to accomplish by posting here but I have dealt with anxiety the majority of my life. I am hoping at some point I can get the courage to get decent help or gain some tools to get some relief. I need some non judgmental advice and reassurance. I need something. There are several things that trigger my anxiety but after my father had a heart attack and passed away I was able to push my anxieties away for a couple years but after about 6 years (it has been about....
