Re: Here's me...(long, but I need some help)

Hi, I'm sorry you're going through this. Here's what I would say: Do talk to a lawyer about what you're doing for your mother and whether you can get guardianship, and about finding assets. I understand lawyers are expensive -- are there any free legal services for those in financial need where you ...

Re: i feel as tho im dying.this prolonged depression is different

Hey, I'm really sorry that you're experiencing this, and I am sorry you got a weird response as the first response. It is messed up when you get up the courage to pour your heart on a message board and then you get a weird response or zero responses! We're already fragile and it's not easy to not ta...

Re: Unable to express my emotions

Hi, I'm really sorry to hear what you're experiencing. It sounds like severe depression. Do you have any access to therapy? I know this sounds completely lame, but if you FORCE yourself to exercise, go on outings, go out with people, go on walks, call a friend on the phone, even do volunteer work, i...

Re: I want to no longer exist

Hey, how are you doing? I understand and can relate to the desire to not exist. I also can relate to missing your cat (I just lost mine). Do you want to talk about it on the board here? I know that is not much to offer, but perhaps it would help.

Re: my best friend

I'm so sorry. Birdie is beautiful. I lost my cat in December. I still can't believe he's gone. I had a dream a couple weeks ago where he was about to jump up on the bed. He put his front feet up but then somehow got pulled away or faded away ...

Tell me more if you want to. It might help.

Re: Stuck in a Viscious Cycle of Self Sabotage and I want to die.

Hi there, Your post really resonated with me and I wanted to reply. First, I wanted to say that the way you wrote the introduction, like the first three paragraphs, is wonderfully evocative and captures the essence of depression and self-loathing so well. You are a good writer and a sensitive, think...

Re: Hi, I'm old and my dreams are all ashes

Hi, thank you so much for responding. I really appreciate it. It is great to hear that you came to feel that life is worth living despite disappointments. I also love to hear that you ran a triathlon -- that's awesome, and inspiring. I agree that depending on other people's opinions for a sense of s...

Re: Hi, I'm old and my dreams are all ashes

Hi Eboni, thank you so much for responding! It certainly does help to feel that I am not alone in my feelings. I would love to talk. I am not seeing a therapist right now but I would like to. As you probably know, it's hard to find the right one. I don't think I'm too picky but I want to talk to som...

Hi, I'm old and my dreams are all ashes

So, if you're 18 or 22 or 34 and thinking, "I've ruined my life with my bad decisions," imagine how much more that would suck if you were 58 and you realize at this point that it's ... well ... objectively true. That's where I'm at. I've really made a series of the most boneheaded, immatur...

Re: Having a mental breakdown

Hi there. I'm pretty much new to this board. I understand feeling all alone and wondering why nobody even texts you. I lost a lot of friends over the past few years, and I feel very alone. I feel like nobody sees me or thinks about me. I couldn't quite tell from your post; are you not in India? You ...

Re: Guilt

Hi Conor, I actually joined this board just to respond to this. Unfortunately I don't have any advice, but hopefully it will help you just to hear someone say "me too." I feel guilt and shame over my past mistakes and actions all the time. It's a sick, uncomfortable feeling that's like bac...
