Re: What Is Wrong With Me

Hi Dprssdkd, Being a teenager is never easy and there are a lot of struggles on many levels. What makes being a teenager even harder is that you have limited control of the decisions you can make in your own life. As teenagers, we also depend more on the support and nurture from other people, especi...

Re: Dead inside

Hi completely lost, I cannot say whether or not you have major depression, but what you just described has many of the key characteristics of depression. Perhaps talking to a therapist will help you to figure out what is troubling you. A therapist may also be able to help you find effective ways to ...

Re: I don't know what now...

Hi Panda, First, I just wanted to commend you for your recognizing that your job is affecting you, and then having the courage and willingness to do something about it. I hope this doesn’t come across as condescending. It’s just that many people would rather settle to do what they must do rather tha...

Re: Hi there ...

Hi Grace, Oh stop, you’ll give me a big head xD But, seriously, thank you for the compliments. It’s my friend’s birthday today. I sent her a birthday card that will hopefully lift her spirits. Well, I was going to get some counseling, but it doesn’t feel right for me. This is likely because I’ve had...

Re: Hi....

Hi Nikki, I hear you, and this is a completely normal feeling that many of us share, whether it is scars or some other imperfection on our bodies or even in our hearts. Being confident comes from being comfortable in our own skin, and confidence attracts people into your life. Nikki, the scars on yo...

Re: My depressing life story, lol

Hi Soul, I am doing... okay lol. One of the things I find is that I often would rate my day based on how I was feeling overall. For example, yesterday I had a period where I wanted to so badly to die. But today was actually okay. This little insight puts things into perspective for me in that, while...

Re: I'm still here

Hi Grace, How was your day? I hope you are doing well. Yeah I do get notifications when someone replies to a post. I am working on giving myself the same love, nurture, care and respect that I give to others. You made a great point in that “you’re your best when you care for you, love you, respect a...

Re: I feel alone.

Hi Steph, There is nothing to forgive -- you were just expressing your feelings. You have every right to feel the way you do because they are your feelings. What matters is what we do with our feelings. You’ve expressed yours, and this is always better than bottling it up or not confronting our issu...

Re: God is punishing me

When I was small, I didn't know any better and became involved in sin. It was how I was raised. When I began to understand that it was wrong, I still kept on the wrong path, so I lived in a cycle of guilt and shame until I finally took the right path. Since then I've tried to be a good person to ma...

Grace, What you said is something I've felt myself as well as experienced with friends. I only just lost a friend yesterday because she feels exactly how you described. No matter how much I tried to show her that I care and that I have AND always will be there for emotional support or anything she ...

Re: Never learned how to live life....now alone

Hi CrazyWulf, My thoughts go out to you and your kids. You are a single parent of two kids, trying to hold down jobs of minimum wage, you struggle everyday with having enough money to cover even basic living expenses, along with depression, anxiety, your wife leaving, limited resources and support, ...

Re: Hi.

Hi AyaLynn, Thank you for reaching out -- it's the first step we must all take on the road to healing. Some people find that writing down their feelings helps them through what they are feeling and experiencing. Writing can also, at times, give you some clarity. Talking is the same -- talking throug...

Re: living with Depression

Ann, I'm sorry you are in such a dark place at the moment. The depression in my life lasted for years, too, since I was 13. I feel like during the time I was living with depression, my life was just wasted because of the anxiety and inhibitions associated with depression. I was unable to reach my fu...

Re: I don't feel anything...at all

Hi guys, I have a long history of major depression. In fact, literally, half my life was spent in a state of major depression, which began when I was 13. What's interesting is that many people do feel what you have essentially described: numb, detached, disconnected from self and the world around th...
