    Depression

    I’m never one to express my feelings but it’s got to the point I feel like I have to talk to someone and hopefully people who understand. I didn’t have a regular childhood I spent most of it with abusive parents being sexual abused and then into foster care. Depression never goes for me and I constantly have the questions of is it my fault? Would it of been better is I wasn’t born? Did I deserve it? Lately things have got harder I had an abusive partner for 2 years and recently had to stop contact....

    Hopeless

    Hello, I am 18 Y.O. and am enrolled in college. I do see a therapist and I am trying different medications but none of that is helping. I feel so hopeless that things will never get better. I am tired of feeling either sad or empty all the time. I don't know what to do anymore I just want to get better. The only thing that helps a little bit is cutting.

    I'm trying.

    I've been struggling with depression for as long as I can remember with two (and a half) failed suicide attempts more recently. I realized I had to tell someone, so I told my mom I think I need help. At the moment I did it, it felt like a great weight lifted off my shoulders, but in the long term, It's made life harder. She treats me differently and she doesn't trust me. I understand she is trying to help, and I'm glad. She is making me a therapist appointment today, and I want to....

    Caught in a bad situation

    I was a student at a University. Due to overwhelming health issues I had to get therapy to just even consider functioning again. I wasn’t in touch with my department or academic advisor during that time as I knew I’d get no support from them. I was getting better till recently, when I had to take up my academic commitments. It’s been like getting thrown back into some hell again. I’m back to thoughts of death, and I’ve injured myself repeatedly over the stress so that I can get myself to calm down....

    Depression

    I feel like crying all the time. I used to cry a lot and now my eyes hurt all the time and the migraine makes it more worse. I don't sleep at all. It's been 4 months and i sleep on alternate days for 2-3 hours and deep down i know i want to sleep. Everything around me angers me so much and i end up digging nails so deep in my palms that sometimes the blood pours out. I don't even think i want someone to help me. It's like i'm just waiting for it all to end. I don't even know....

    Back..

    I haven't been on this website for over 2 years now, and by the time I was barely 17, and now that I am 19, I have learned a lot from my past and have done mistakes but I manage to keep staying strong and moving forward. As I read my message boards from over 2 years ago, I honestly thought that I had grown and changed for the better, but have I? I have been through worst now and I feel like if I am going back to my old habits... the only thing that keeps me going everyday is honestly myself but....

    I Feel Like I Have Nothing Left

    I dont know what to do anymore. Speaking to a counselor didn't help, when I reach out to family members their solution is to seek counseling. Every day I feel like I am a failure to my family (wife, kids and parents), a failure to myself and to anyone that knows me. Over the years I have developed the ability to put the happiness of everyone around me first. I have this uncanny ability to hide my pain and hurt from the rest of the world so much so that on the numerous occassions in which I checked....
