    Mom of College Student

    I don't know if this is the right board to post on but I really feel the need to talk to someone. My daughter is a freshman at a large university. She has always been what I called "high strung" and very emotional. In high school she was dealing with a lot of changes. For most of her first year she was very anxious and became depressed. Then she began having problems with eating. After the first year of hs, her anxiety improved but She developed an eating disorder. By her junior year....

    I really don't know

    Hi, I'm Kat. I'm 16. I struggle with depression, suicidal thoughts, and anger "fits". And I'm losing. See, my parents don't believe in depression- they think it is something that the weak have. And as a Christian family, they think any illnesses can be truly cured through the act of prayer. I'm not religious, though I can very well fake a good prayer and ace the Bible trivia. I think not being able to confront my parents about who I truly am is part of the problem. I....

    Loneliness consumed me

    I've never felt so alone and un motivated in my whole life. I have battled with eating disorders for many years and constant feeling of never being good enough, always feeling like I am never good enough or not happy with the person I am. I had a long relationship, I loved him deeply and he broke my heart many times, finally we broke up a year ago and since then I've spiraled down and not even noticing I was. I feel completely alone, i have no longer any friends, and I don't interact....

    Anorexia relapse?

    I have been fighting Major Depressive Disorder and Anorexia for 15 years. I have been steady for a couple years but am headed into a full blown relapse. I had a stomach virus a few weeks ago where I couldn't eat or drink anything for 5 days, after that I could only get back to 1 small meal a day. I also have only had 8oz of water in 2 weeks and a little coffee. I am showing physical signs of malnutrition and dehydration. I don't want to go in for medical treatment but I think I might have....

    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....

    Don't know

    I'm just lost. I was in a bad relationship for 20 years that ended in an ugly divorce. It had a very negative affect on all of my friends and family to the point where I am no longer close to anyone. I moved to a new Town due to a promotion (about the only good thing to happen) and I am finding it difficult to make new friends. People tell me that "I need to get laid". Sex was part of the problem with my marriage, don't want to make that mistake again. I'm also not one to drink....

    Just listen

    Its the same damn thing with everyone, ya know? I tell them im depressed and the immediatly respond with go see a doctor. Go get some help. Just shut the *** up if thats all you are gonna say. Let me tell you from experience, the whole doctor stuff is bs and it doesnt actually help you in the way you need to be helped. Most people like me who have sevre anxiety and depression look for help but all we find is people saying go see a doctor and doctors saying "here take some *** pills and youll....

    I Need Help

    Hi everyone, I need help but I don't know what for. I'm 17, 18 in a month and I haven't had the desire to eat for a week now. I sleep at irregular hours and I'm always exhausted, I have no interest in the things that used to make me happy. All I do anymore is lay in my bed and stare at the ceiling listening to music. I used to be so active and love hanging out with my friends, but I have the feeling that they don't like me anymore. I'm angry all the time and I know people....

    I think im already dead

    Life... at this point... makes zero *** sense. Like how in the hell am i supposed to be "me" when idek who tf i am. How am i supposed to pick a major to study when I DONT KNOW. I inherited depression from both parents so the likely hood i was gonna get it is the same as a baby pissing itself. Not only that but my life has been a big fat timeline of my family slapping each other with napkins saying "youre a chod mokey" and just straight dipping. Like i used to have a big family....
