    Anyone else feel so depressed that they can't move?

    I feel nothing.

    For the past year or two I have felt very hollow. I'm a senior in high school who has just entered my final semester, but I'm sort of just failing everything. I know I should try harder and it hurts to see poor grades roll in but I feel like I can't do anything about it -- like, I want to do...

    Mind if I vent?

    Hello, my name is Nick. I'd like to apologize in advance, because I do know all of you probably have it worse than I do, yet you're taking the time to read my venting anyway. And for that I thank you. I dropped my college classes because I was thinking about suicide, and I just couldn't...

    Eye Contact

    Apparently, other people make eye contact with each other. So I hear. I don't Making eye contact with people is scary I might look at someone's eyes ever so quickly to see if they are looking at me. But to make eye contact with another human being is like saying 'I am your master' or for a...

    Isolation

    There is nothing for me to do where I live. Nothing in the daytime. The college says I have to pay in full as I am in the support group of esa. I never complete a term of lessons anyway. The Saturday pottery/craft/art classes last the entire day and cost over thirty pounds. I don't get...

    Retreats

    Just a vent

    I just joined the forums today; i'm 20 years old and I'm self-dx on the spectrum; I had a diagnosis when I was a kid but it was kind of sketchy and it was mostly to get me accomodations. If it's alright, i'm just going to vent about my situation. To sum it up, i feel completely hopeless. My...

    College student needing words of encouragement

    Typically I'm a really quiet person. I keep to myself, tend to not tell even those I'm the closest with how much I am feeling, and often how much I am not feeling anything at all. I just need to talk to someone, someone who understands how crippling it can all feel. It has been only around 6...
