    illusion

    This is something common in our society, breakup and love failure. I went through a breakup and i am so caught up with the past. The reason for breaking up is misunderstandings, we were hardly in a relationship for two months but those were the best days. my first true love. We both liked each other so much but when we were in a relationship we found our true selves. i had anger issues and that affected her in a large scale and at one point she was fed up with me and we parted ways. i have put this....

    Dealing with my son’s depression

    It’s been hard dealing with my 37 year old son’s depression. He’s on meds switch his doctor has been changing. He’s gone through this once before 9 years ago, took a while to get him better. How do I handle his constant negative texts, phone calls, usually ending with his wanting to die. I want him to vent to me but it’s hard. He’s promised he wouldn’t kill himself and I’ve told his doctor. Too sad

    Feeling Defeated by Depression

    Hi to anyone who reads this. And thanks for the opportunity to candidly vent here. It may ramble at times, but I need to let it out, and hope for advice/info. From a young age, around 3 or 4, I could tell something was not quite right about my family. A lot of secrecy, and just a feeling of heaviness and tension, always being present in the house. Plenty of fighting, as well.  I remember being afraid of my father and sister, and not protected by my mother. My brother and I were closer than the others....

    Surviving bipolar

    After spending my life with undiagnosed Bipolar Depression. I was finally diagnosed 5 days before my 55th birthday (this year). Iostruggled my whole life. I always thought I was lazy and stupid. (That's what my Mom told me) As I got older the raceing thoughts took over. I lost jobs and relationships. I drank to fall asleep and did cocaine and energy drinks to get though my day. Lucky for me I had a career that allowed me to stay in bed for weeks, sometimes months. No one knew. Just me. Events....
  • Hello Everyone

    I feel like such a train wreck! I have sever anxiety and panic attacks and also have severe depression. It is such a battle to get out of bed and go to work everyday. I feel so alone and I am so tired of feeling like this so I have a mental health assessment in December. It is probably something I should have done in my teenage years. I have also gained so much weight from all my medications and how many times they get switched. I have pulled away from everyone, including my family and I am trying....

    I don’t know if Im bipolar or not

    I’m a 19 year old female and have been struggling for a long time. I’ve always had anxiety, with on and off depression in the more recent years. I was almost abducted a month ago while I was walking my dog, and the stress and scariness of the incident has also brought on the anxiety and panic attacks I sometimes get. I get so angry sometimes for no reason and I want to punch a wall or something. I act out and make bad decisions without regard of the consequences. Then I get sad out of nowhere and....
