Broken

So I've been dealing with depression and anxiety for a really long time. I've been to therapy, I've been put on medications, the whole nine yards. And to be honest... I'm tired. I'm just so, so tired of trying to deal with it, handle everything in my life. I feel liked there's this enormous weight, ...

Re: Could Use Some Help

It sucks when it's a sibling who's abusing you because people always respond with "Siblings fight" and say that it's normal. I still struggle to cope with it and honestly a part of me is still scared of my brother. I know that he'll never land a hand on me again because I'm able to fight b...

Re: ANXIETY,PANICAL ATTACKS AND HIGH STRESS LEVELS IN MY LIFE-help me please

Alexandra321, you can PM me whenever. I'm really glad you've talked to your friend. I've seen doctors and therapists and been put on medication but honestly if it weren't for my two best friends I wouldn't be here and doing as well as I am right now. Having someone that I'm close with and can share ...

Re: Normal...

So I'm actually doing a bit better. my friends had started to notice that I wasn't doing so well and made me talk to them. I'm no longer seeing a therapist and I'm trying to get off my medication. I'm overall pretty okay it's just every once in a while I hit some lows and it helps me to kind of air ...

Re: Could Use Some Help

I honestly have trouble opening up to people in general. Growing up with an abusive older brother when ever I tried to go to my parents for help they ignored me and the problem so I guess I just stopped trying to get help from others. Now it's been so long that keeping everything bottled up is kind ...

Re: ANXIETY,PANICAL ATTACKS AND HIGH STRESS LEVELS IN MY LIFE-help me please

Honestly, dealing with school and depression sucks. The best the that has happened to me in a long time was graduating school last year. It's stressful and all you want to do is never go back there again, as least it was like that for me. I know that doesn't really work as advice but honestly the mo...

Could Use Some Help

So I've been dealing with depression and anxiety for a long time. I've posted on her a few times, usually when I'm having a really hard time and I need to vent. I have a really hard time talking to people about my... difficulties. I'm not really the kind of ask for help person. So how do I let someo...

Normal...

I have been depressed for a long time, honestly I don't even know what it's like to be anything else. Every time I thing I'm getting better something happens that reminds me that I'm not. I didn't exactly have the best home situation growing up. My older brother has anger issues and basically just t...

Re: Seems like a waste

Hey Unblockeddarksol, (I like your username by the way). It sounds like, to me, that you may have some social anxiety that kind of makes a bit socially awkward. Social media can make it easier to communicate with people in a way you wouldn't or couldn't in person. You definitely don't come off as a ...

Re: Is seeing friends good for depression?

Speaking as someone who suffers from depression, it's a hard situation. And it's even harder to convince someone to seek help if they don't feel ready. I'll be honest the only reason I got help was because I'd hit rock bottom and tried to kill myself. For someone in that situation who's family is le...

Self-Loathing

Hi. So I usually post about depression but I decided that I could really use some advice on this. It was pointed out to me by a close friend a few months ago that I'm very negative towards myself and that while I'm forgiving towards most others when it comes to me and my mistakes or what I perceive ...

Re: Greetings

Hi, LittleThings. So I tend to repress things instead of dealing with them, sadly I'm very good at it. But I can say that posting on the forum can be very therapeutic. It's actually easier for me to express all of the things I'm dealing with here than at my therapy appointments. The animosity makes ...

Re: Intro Hi, from Michael Mann, (B7 Obsession)

Hi. Speaking as one of the severely depressed members on the site, you need not be evicted. It's probably good to have someone with an outside view who's studied mental illnesses to give the rest of us some perspective. :D
