    Reliving the past

    I sit here and think of what I could’ve, would’ve and should’ve done in my life.. I suffer from depression and alcoholism.. It’s difficult to handle both and when I get down and out I go right to the bottle. I refuse to use any antidepressants due to the last one I was on almost killed me!! It’s such a disgusting disease that not too many people know I have.. I cover it up very well. I’ve lost a lot of my life because of this and I isolate myself because I don’t want to bother or burden anyone else....
  • Confused, frustrated, and sad

    Lately it’s been hard to navigate social circles because I’ve grown to be deeply upset by one fact about myself. I am attracted to both genders and it really affects my thinking and self-esteem. What else can I do so I don’t completely implode and avoid the friends that I care so greatly about? I’ve been exercising, dancing, doing all the things I love, but I’ve realized I need someone else’s perspective besides my own to make it through without wanting to cry sometimes.

    I'm trying.

    I've been struggling with depression for as long as I can remember with two (and a half) failed suicide attempts more recently. I realized I had to tell someone, so I told my mom I think I need help. At the moment I did it, it felt like a great weight lifted off my shoulders, but in the long term, It's made life harder. She treats me differently and she doesn't trust me. I understand she is trying to help, and I'm glad. She is making me a therapist appointment today, and I want to....

    Help, depressed

    Hi, I have been out of hospital for about 8 months now because I had a brain injury and it’s affected my memory and cognitive stuff and I am still in school. I have missed out on a big amount of school so I’m falling behind but since it’s a brain injury I look fine and everyone thinks that I’m just lazy and dumb. Also now I can’t do any physical activity meaning that I have had to leave my sport clubs and I have nothing to do during the day and I can’t excersise so I’m not used to that. Because of....

    Can you survive alone

    I live with Bipolar Disorder and anxiety. I dont have any friends or family. I cared for my younger Brother who was a Minister and my best friend and advisor. He was also the only person in the world that loved and encouraged me. He was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and I took care of him in my home until he passed on August 2, 2017. As he got weaker, sicker, the people in the Church, close family members and friends turned on him in the worst way. My heart was broken and I was in shock....

    Depression

    I feel like crying all the time. I used to cry a lot and now my eyes hurt all the time and the migraine makes it more worse. I don't sleep at all. It's been 4 months and i sleep on alternate days for 2-3 hours and deep down i know i want to sleep. Everything around me angers me so much and i end up digging nails so deep in my palms that sometimes the blood pours out. I don't even think i want someone to help me. It's like i'm just waiting for it all to end. I don't even know....

    Hopeless

    Haven’t seen my 2 young sons but once in the past 12 months. My ex wife will not talk to me, and have recently been diagnosed with liver disease...having a family of my own was all I ever wanted and now to have nothing has me ruined....I have tried all the usual recommendations with no result and do not know what else to do. I have no real person in my current life and I’m exhausted by continuing to carry on through constant pain.

    Self-Imposed Isolation

    I am very lonely and have difficulty reaching out to others. My current work situation is stressful and my significant other and elderly father are not well. The latter is in a compromised situation that I didn't create and cannot fix which feels frustrating to say the least. While there are caring others out there to call, I don't (most likely a combination of trust issues and vulnerability). Any suggestions for breaking out of this self-imposed isolation?
