    Stressing

    My story is a long one and am not suicidel. I inherited money from my husband who died 5 years ago. My boyfriend has now saying I am picking on him but that was a mutual good natured thing we did. Now I feel like he wants me to change my personality but his is ok. My 82 year old dad is very sick and over a thousand miles from me. I don’t plan to change my personality for anyone. I have tried to use the money I inherited to help others but it seems I am being taken advantage of.

    Will it ever end?

    I'm 47 years old. Spouse, dad, and grandparent. I've been dealing with depression and anxiety most of my life. I started taking Zoloft about 19 years ago. Since then I've been on different medications for depression and anxiety. I've been in counseling and have a psychiatrist. In 2016 I volunteered to admit myself in a mental hospital. It's a rollercoaster for me! See depression is real and it doesn't ever go away. It's just some days are better than others. On a scale....

    Trying to get better

    I'm a college student with major depressive disorder (and probably anxiety but I really don't want to get diagnosed with more stuff). I haven't always been this depressed, but it's fluctuated for the past four or five years. My suicidal urges have been 'acting up' over the past several weeks, and I had a really bad episode while I was driving, resulting in a minor ticket and a not-fun conversation with my parents about how bad my situation actually was. They are understandably....

    Spouse of depressed husband

    I’ve been married to my husband for almost 10 years. Half of that time, he’s been on medication for depression. It’s been hard, but our love has also been strengthened through many trials and difficult times that we’ve made through. In connection with his depression is what seems like a whirlwind in his employment. He was a teacher, but found the work unfulfilling (as a current teacher, I totally understand that the high demands dictate the need for a love of the profession in spite of those demands....

    Not impressed by most anti-anxiety meds

    I have to be honest, I've been switched back and forth between BuSpar and Vistaril for years, and neither one has been very effective in helping my anxiety. Currently, I am maxed out on BuSpar, and take Propanalol, and Prazosin as well...yet I still have chest pain on a regular basis. Nothing wrong with my heart, just anxiety related.

    Disoriented/Confusion ... Panicking??

    I am a 20 year old female and I feel like I've been experiencing this for most of my life, I just don't know how to thoroughly explain it. At very random occurrences, and I 100% know where I am because it always happened in the car, at school, or at home and I haven't felt this way in years until about a couple of weeks ago. I start to feel very confused of my surroundings even though I know where I am. I remember this one day specifically where I was leaving my elementary school when....

    Overwhelmed

    I lost my grandmother a few months ago, and I just moved to a new state and city. I had to abruptly change jobs. Now I have to live with the fear of living in a dark house or being homeless. Those are just my external wounds. Internally, I am at odds with who I am in context of identity. Sometimes, I think I have functioning depression. I try to pray, I try to think positive yet, more often than not I feel overwhelmed, stressed out and at the end of my rope.

    Overwhelmed by daily task

    Hi all, I’ve been struggling with depression for a year. I’ve tried to make life more manageable by making necessary changes - for example, I was studying and working, but am now just studying, which lessens the pressure. But my fatigue is extreme, and motivation so low, that there are days where I wake up teary and overwhelmed for no reason. I have people in my life who want to support me, but I just don’t know what to ask them for. I try to exercise, but I’m so tired. Does anyone have any tips....
