    Drowning

    Ever feel like your drowning? The world is overloading your plate, and no matter how hard you try its swallowing you whole. Your losing control and losing the people you grew up loving and that by society standards, are supposed to love you back. Lost friends. Lost family. Losing my home. I feel backed into a corner and like I'm losing an uphill battle. I'm drowning. The room is spinning, I have to much anxiety to open up to people. To talk about my problems.

    I need someone for a meeting.

    I don't know how this whole thing works. I've never done this before. I need to talk to someone personally. I just can't talk to the people I know. So If anyone shares the thought, please let me know.

    Bipolar/ETC

    I Noticed articles on ETC are all old well I have been going for almost pys year and it saved my life. I am weaning off and would love to answer any questions.

    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....

    Lost and feeling alone.

    I have bipolar disorder and recently was terminated from my job. I completely screwed up. I feel I can no longer work in my chosen profession, a career I’ve been working very hard at for 19 years...the career I wanted to do since I was a little girl. I am loving, caring, want to help and do, but I suffer. My medicine has been tweaked but I’m still not “normal”. It seems like who I really am is disruptive and seen as NOT normal. I feel overwhelmed with everything that has happened and one day I’m....

    Depression

    Sometimes mine gets really bad but I always find it does get better. I am bipolar. So it seems a little harder sometimes. I will say this. If someone isn’t there for you then let them go. Some people just don’t understand or have no desire to be involved. A person that I thought I could rely on after a long friendship proved that to me. I feel good knowing there are places like this even though it’s the internet. We can support each other.

    So depressed

    I feel so useless. I don’t think that I have a purpose anymore. My children are grown. I can’t seem to let go of the past. I am bipolar so I do take meds but sometimes they don’t help.
