    I don't know what else to do...

    I literally feel like there is no way out. I drink alcohol to try to numb the pain (I start drinking around 6am)...and now my body is rejecting it too. The tightness that I feel in my chest just from being depressed feels like it's crushing me from the inside out. I want to cry but the tears won't fall. I've tried talking to family; they more or less tell me to suck it up because I have kids. But this is why I need...some relief! I want to be there for them but I can barely get off the....

    Misdiagnosis and meds haven’t worked so far.

    I am writing this post to get it off my chest and maybe even get some advice. I am currently 18 and live alone 13 hours from any family. At 11 years old I was diagnosed with severe depression after my parents found out I was suicidal (I didn’t even know the word at the time but I wanted to die). At 13 I started struggling with panic attacks and high anxiety as well. At around 15 my doctor was convinced I had bipolar 2 but because I was under 18 wasn’t diagnosed. A few months after that I was told....

    I'm scared of and for my husband...

    I feel like I can clearly see the changes in my husband's mental state over the last 6 years or so. We both did drugs recreationally, and both had our issues with chemical dependency. I have dealt with depression and anxiety for most of my life. And my family, on both sides, has experienced a wide range of mental health issues from PTSD to schizophrenia so I am no stranger to the signs and symptoms that come with these kinds of problems. So, it pains me and frustrates me to no end to see my husband....

    I'm confused

    I've struggled with depression and anxiety for about 4 years, but this past year my social anxiety has gotten really really bad. I'm in a band and I absolutely love playing music and used to love performing but now whenever I'm at a gig I get so anxious that I get suicidal and think about how I could end it all in order to get out of there. My anxiety has been very very bad for about 3 weeks, and I'm so frustrated because I want it to just get better but all of the meds I've tried....

    Isolation last 20 months-580 days

    I have been in my room in my house since 3/16/18. I am bi polar and was under Dr care steady since 1997 except for 6-7 periods of isolation. I took meds as prescribed until 3/18. This time my isolation is far longer than any others. I feel ok physically and have taken no medications of any type since 5/18. I cannot tolerate people, loud noses or responsibility. My 22 yr old granddaughter accepts my agoraphobia and is my live in caretaker and savior! I pray daily and now hope to get medical care before....

    So sad

    For the past 2wks I've been so depressed that I feel empty and the anxiety is worse. I cry all the time and just want to sleep. I only leave the house to work. I recently broke up with a boyfriend that was cheating and lied. I have financial stress. I'm on meds, but idk anymore. I just feel hopeless, lost, alone and scared.
