    Please help

    I am feeling alone and depressed and scared. I lost my mom when I was 14 and have struggled with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and ocd ever since. I am married and have a 2 yr old son who is the light of my life. Before he was born I had a miscarriage early on and a similar miscarriage after he was born. Shortly after that I was pregnant with a little girl we named Isabelle. After announcing it to friends and family and even buying her a few things, I lost the baby. I have been struggling....

    Concerned partner

    Hi all. Background: I have been together with my other half for just over a year, engaged since Christmas and living together for the same period of time. I'm 35, she is 31 and at the moment we are both working freelance in the entertainment industry, doing well professionally and looking to buy a house rather than our small flat. I've always known that she has been and sometimes still is struggling with depression. She has been using anti depressants but has very slowly, and after advice....

    The older I get, the harder life gets

    I haven't been diagnosed with a mental or emotional disorder, but I know something is wrong. I was seeing a therapist through an EAP program, but I have used all of my free visits. I can't afford the $55 copay and I really need therapy to talk through some things I am struggling with. Little things (like an increased work commute or a change in plans) are causes me so much stress, anxiety, and sadness and I'm afraid I'm going to break at the wrong time or in front of the wrong people....

    So lost

    I suffer from bipolar depression, severe anxiety, and panic disorders. We moved from my home state to another state 14 hours away for a job which, at first, I was very excited for and accepted willingly. However, I've I got here my depression and anxiety have increased 100 fold (no exaggerating) and all I want to do is tuck and run back home. I take depression and anxiety meds but nothing seems to be helping except to take a daily xanax and I'm afraid of dependence. I don't know what....

    new type of behavior therapy

    I saw a commercial about a new therapy that uses a "cap" and some type of laser or electric charge. I have been doing EMDR therapy with little progress and hoping to try something else. I do not want to surrender to medication as a solution to my problems. Do you know what this therapy is called so that I can try to find a local provider?

    Depression and anorexia/ bulimia

    Hey there I don’t know if anyone has ever battled to shift their mind set? I am battling bulimia and anorexia but I have given up all together and no matter how hard I try to fight and shift my thinking I am stuck. A lot has happened that has led to this but I won’t even give myself a chance. It’s like I’ve just got no more hope in me and I’m too tired to try. The weird thing is I am trying to understand why I’m doing this. I mean ultimately it means I’ll either die but this is a really *** way to....

    I'm a mess

    Ive been depressed for a while now, and I haven't wanted to admit it to myself. I haven't been to the doctor because I feel like it would be the final step to admitting I am clinically depressed. But the other night I had thoughts that scared me so I called my boyfriend and I asked him to come over because I just needed to be held and he told me he couldn't because he was busy. I'm afraid to tell my family because I know they won't understand. I feel like it's suffocating....

    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....
