    Feeling lost and depressed

    I don’t even know how to start. In the last year I have very frequently felt extremely depressed, sad, alone, unimportant and like my life is a waste and I’m sorta just floating through time. Side note I haven’t seen a doctor or anything for this not even sure if I should? When I get into these moods I lose all motivation: I don’t do well at work or school I don’t do any of the things I normally love like dancing. And I often feel like just breaking down into tears and I’m not always able to figure....

    Challenging Recovery Process

    Hello Friends, It's been approximately 10 weeks now since I found myself ill with depression and anxiety. Precisely, I completed my MSc degree in Data Science and Analytics in Cardiff and I've struggled to get into a job since then. I was offered a phd degree studentship at the University of Liverpool however I wasn't really into furthering my studies and I'm not a big fan of academia.

    Physically Sick with Temperature but Mentally Unwell.

    I am a Female and I'm 23. I have BPD, GAD, and depression. For like 3 weeks every time I take my temperature with an oral thermometer it is always anywhere from 99.8-100.5. But I'm also constantly sweating and nothing can seem to cool me down. I will break into a sweat just sitting down and watching tv or even just laying in my bed. And I don't get hot in "flashes," I stay extremely hot and sweaty. Also I sweat everywhere, not just in certain places. I also don't ever seem....

  • Without support

    I don't know where to start, other than I know I'm falling down the rabbit hole and things are feeling about as bad as I've ever felt. I'm hanging on by a thread, no pun intended. The only person that I talk to is my husband, but only when I'm at my lowest and afraid to go on. My husband is an alcoholic. When he gets drunk, he puts me down for the things I told him, makes fun of me, tells other people - mostly my kids - what I told him out of sheer desperation and need to talk....
