Re: Lost with life: derealization/depression/axiety

Hey Prek, hang in there bro. I agree with the group, it seems like you left therapy a little too soon. A pro will definitely help you unpack everything that's going on. Going back may save your relationship too, hitching so much of your satisfaction to your gf will strain your relationship too far. ...

Re: hi

Hey Ed, Hang in there. You've unpacked your story well. I think you know that suicide will only exacerbate things. Your post didn't mention any therapy. I strongly encourage seeing a therapist or sticking with your current one. If we are ships, our mental health is our rudder. Repairing the rudder w...

Re: Why do people think I’m acting when I’m depressed. Am I right or wrong?

Yeah Narayani, the "outsiders" if you will, just don't get it. To them it's just a simple matter of stop the destructive behavior. To just be happy. Try not to let that get to you too much. Forgiveness. Try to forgive yourself. Try to forgive your family. Forgiveness isn't acceptance, it's...

Re: Just saying hello

Hey who, thanks for sharing your story. I'd like to encourage you to try 2 things; 1 for you, 1 for others. For you. If you go to church consider joining a small group, if you don't go consider starting. Plenty of people there to share & learn from. For others. My suspicion is that you have a we...

Re: Another new depressed person who talks too much.

Hey man, hang in there. You have such a great story. I really encourage you to share it, especially as a writer. Your ability to articulate ideas and the credibility of your adventurous life could really shine some light for people in dark places. If I may be so bold. Challenge yourself to identify ...

Re: Depressed/anxious other half/partner

Hey str80 I'm sorry for your pain. It seems like you two have some things to work out. Are your marriage plans still proceeding? If so, I recommend pre-marital counseling. The process of setting that up will give you some clear signs about her commitment level and the possibilities she might be chea...

Re: New member here

Yeah ben it sounds like it may be ultimatum time with your house guests. But you'll want to do that as a united front with your wife. Remember it's ok to assert your own feelings, you're entitled to them. Give your wife the chance to look out for them. I recommend marital counseling too, you guys ar...

Re: I'm getting too tired to help my friend

Hang in there man. It sounds like both of you are dealing with some heavy stuff. Are you seeing a therapist? If not, I highly recommend it. If you are, ask your therapist for ways to remove yourself from this relationship. Try and forgive yourself and let go of the guilt. When flying the stewardess ...

Re: I'm Not What I Used To Be

I hear all these good comments. For my part, I really empathize with losing myself-the man I was. I think maybe it's time for me to take some risks and find some new magic. A church small group is also a great idea. My own group is a constant source of comfort & encouragement. But my favorite id...

Re: IDK what to do anymore

Hey Bryce2323 letting go is just hard. While an over simplification for sure, learning to let go has been the consistent thing for me in my anxiety journey. Vomiting your thoughts on to a journal is a great idea and well worded. Its like physically taking your anxious thoughts and "letting them...

Re: Hello

Welcome aboard Jakers. You've been carrying this burden for a long time, hang in there. At a minimum, forums like this remind us that we are not alone. I love the cliche about how we are snowflakes, which is typically not used in this context. Snowflakes still melt under the same sun, are created at...

Re: Hi...

Welcome aboard itsfirstdayofall. Some years ago my mother admitted to me that she had sought out depression treatment about 20years prior. For her, the general stigma and having to admit to her family what she did, seeking the help, was the most difficult thing to overcome. She never became truly ok...
