Re: can someone talk to me?

Welcome to the forum. Being alone can suck all the life out of you. You feel like there's no point doing anything if there nobody to share your achievements with. But follow those dreams and keep trying, it does get better. Keep pushing on, if you give in, it will get worse but if you fight forwards...

Re: New member here-need advice

Congratulations, it sounds like you might have depression. Certainly a lot of things you're saying are unpleasantly familiar, and i'm sure they would be for a lot of people here.
Talking and understanding it helps, so you're in the right place.

Re: I don't know whats wrong with me

It sounds like some kind of panic attack. Are you under a lot of stress or pressure at the moment, are deadlines looming? Is there a general sense that you're not coping with things?
We all have a feeling that we're not good enough at some point.

Re: lost in my own mind.

With depression you have to live one day at a time. Don't focus on the long term, just put your energy into what you can do. Don't push yourself with all the pressures of tomorrow, just deal with one thing as it comes and then move on to the next. I can tell you, as a long-term survivor, it does get...

Re: Stupid Suicide Forms

Respectfully, religion isn't the answer for most people. If prayer worked, we wouldn't need doctors, technology, science and medicine. we have those things, so take from that what you will.

Re: Another new depressed person who talks too much.

I had a better weekend so far. Last weekend was rough and I expected this one to be worse. It's been nearly 3 weeks since I saw my son, which makes everything worse. This weekend his mum had a job doing hair and makeup at a wedding so they had to go away. It's his birthday on Thursday so they're com...

Sorry I'm late, i've been busy at work! Yes, got it and replied now. I do have a very vivid imagination, mostly that's from an absolutely appalling amount of coffee I drink!

Here's another story. This is a more recent one. I was inspired by the concept of perfection after reading 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.' This is another short story about what it means to be perfect. Notice the dates on each section! The Perfect Fit 2000 He pushed the door open hard e...

Re: People doing drugs at school.

I'm a teacher, trust me when I say that the faculty knows. By all means, she should feel free to report it, especially to the authorities but my interest is in why she's so angry about this.

Re: Failures

Respectfully, you can't consider yourself a failure after two attempts. The only real failures in life are the people who never try. Don't give up after every little setback, just keep going.
Maybe you lack confidence? Work on focusing on what you're good at and build on that.

Re: A LOSER'S POEM

Sounds pretty familiar to me. It's not easy being different and it's even harder when you hate yourself for it.
