    Reasons to be sad but it’s hard!!!!!

    I do have chronic depression that I function well with. But I now have children I’ve nannied for 8 years moving around the world. Everyone knows I’m sad and a lot of the family and friends are also sad. But I have moments where I cannot stop crying, feeling hopeless and so alone. Recently I learned how hurtful it is to my mother that I am so sad so I’ve chosen not to call her with tears. And she’s always been my sounding board. I wish I had a husband or my own kids or more friends. I’ve basically....

    Am I anxious or an alcoholic?

    So, I first noticed signs of depression about 3 years ago but never really took my mental health seriously until about 9 months ago once the symptoms became too difficult to live with. I started seeing a therapist and things were going well until I moved to New Zealand for 6 months in June of last year. I was attending university there for a semester, and the party culture got the best of me and I began drinking pretty heavily (20+ drinks per week easily). I also noticed my depression got much worse....

    Advice

    I relocated to another state, and left my husband, he thinks I am just visiting. I could not take him any longer telling my to shut up, or saying he never forgives or forgets, and the belittling anymore. I feel he is making my depression and anxiety worst. Being with my 2 youngest grand children makes me feel better. I need to know how to tell him I love him but can not live that way any more. I have told him so many times over the past year, I feel he is not listening to me. Any advice would be....

    Losing my mind

    I have always struggled with anxiety and depression for the majority of my life and I thought I had a handle on it. Then the psychosis symptoms started showing in my early 20's. I'm now 24 and still no official diagnosis but I have been on a few types of antipsychotics and I just feel so doped up from them. Why is my diagnosis taking so long? I want the voices and paranoia to go away. My anxiety is worse now since I have a constant voice in my head confirming all of the things I'm scared....

    I got cheated

    I gave my whole life to her. I've got nothing left not even my pride. There'a nothing more to look forward to. My future is doomed. I've got nowhere to turn, nowhere to go. How do i get this pain and anger out that's consuming me? Where do i go so i can ran away from this? Death is the only escape, isnt it?

    Trapped inside my own head

    I feel like my head is constantly buzzing. like a banging drum, a repeating loop that tries to focus on something and can't. After a while I get sore eyes, almost like a burning sensation. This can spread into my nose. Can I head butt the wall to make it stop? I sit in-front of a computer screen 8 hours a day which makes it worse. I find it difficult to remember things. I talk over the top of people. I struggle to get tasks done. Listening to people for any length of time for anything over a....
