    Caring for self harm injuries?

    I've recently relapsed and I don't want my parents to find out but I also don't want to stop, and I need a way to clean my cuts and wrap them for overnight so they're covered until they begin to heal without me having to go to a store other than the one close to my dad's house (which is Amish, and they don't have much other than dented food cans, shampoo, candy, and pills). What should I use to clean them with? Can I use a clean strip of fabric from a t-shirt as a wrap? Is....

    Feeling depressed

    So my therapist has diagnosed me with Complex Trauma but also with Major Depressive Disorder. I've been doing ok lately but just had knee surgery so am laid up. I don't do well just sitting not being able to do things as my mind has time to feel things. So now I have been feeling really depressed and emotional. I want to fall back on my old ways of coping but know I shouldn't as they aren't healthy but yet they work to balance things out. Pretty much feeling anxious and like I'm....

    Depression?

    Hi everyone, I’m 19 years old and was doing pretty well until approximately 2 months ago. On the 1st of February I had a massive panic attack and it left me with a weird sensation that has never left me since. I feel like nothing makes sense anymore. And I mean nothing. I feel like I don’t love my family anymore, or my friends. I had to go back home from university even though I really loved it. All my dreams, my goal, the things I wanted to do don’t mean anything anymore. I don’t see why people....

    Debilitating Physical "anxiety" but not really anxious

    Hi! I'm a 23 year old male who is considered healthy i.e. not over or under weight, no vitamin/mineral deficiencies, no officially diagnosed medical conditions etc. This issue is that one day when I was a young teenager about 13/14 years old, I randomly had a panic attack while at home, for no apparent reason that I can remember. Ever since then I have on a few occasions had panic attacks but mostly what's affected me are just episodes of physical anxiety/panic symptoms such as a raised heartbeat....

    I need help

    I have depression and I got the guts to tell my mom. It was a really hard thing to do. She proceeded to tell me that i was being a hypochondriac. A few weeks later she got a call from the councillor saying that i hurt myself. That was a terrible conversation. Instead of listening to me, she Interrogated me, lost hope in me, and didn't talk to me until after i came back from my dads house.

    Trust Issues

    Hello. I am a 52 y/o female and I don't have a lot of close friends. And I am sure that the ones I do have are tired of hearing my sadness. Recently my life has turned on its head when I learned of my husband's online 'affair'. And I feel lost at sea with no life preserver. I am wondering if anyone would truly miss me if I was gone?
