    Can't believe I needed to come back.

    It must be nearly 5 years since I came here last. Anxiety depression and all the crap to go with it has once again hit me full blast. I doubt any of my past acquaintances are still here any more. If you are I hope you are doing well. Better than me in any case. I have more pain now than I ever...

    Haunted by abusive upbringing

    I am quite new to this forum but have posted a couple of times and been pleasantly surprised by the support available from the members on here. I’ve recently started counselling sessions as I have a rollercoaster life in terms of dark times and less dark times, I’ve had 3 failed suicide...

    Would any girl like a guy with a dark past like mine?

    I feel so ashamed. I have a dark porn and m past. I have horrible intrusive thoughts. I got beat up by someone who is smaller in size than me even when I started the fight. I know in another thread in this section, I stated how I agreed that one needed to love them-self first in order to be...
