    Any ideas?

    Hi, I’m new and hoping for some info, basically it’s painfully obvious that I have depression/anxiety, mostly dominated by depression I’d say. But I have a lot of things which makes me think I have something more than that? I haven’t been diagnosed further than the two but I have no idea what is...

    Dark Fantasies

    Hey there sports fans! I hope you're all having a completely bearable day. When I was 14 I watched as my best friend was brutally murdered. At the time we were both involved in various petty illegal activities. Because of this, I felt unable to tell a single soul that I was there when it...

    What's wrong with me?

    I think that I have some sort of mental oddity. I go to therapy for arachnophobia, and my therapist included me when she was talked about people with social anxiety a few times, so I guess I have that?? i think that I might need medication for anxiety, my friend takes meds for their anxiety, and...

    Continuous thoughts about life

    Hi everyone, I’ve posted here a few times during my struggling with depersonalization, which is finally calming down for me now. But I have another uncomfortable feeling in the process of recovery and wondering if anyone experienced this too. I am feeling more connected to the world again but...

    I feel like..i'm not strong enough

    Hi who ever stumbles upon this... I'm new to this forum but i've been an active reader. I think it is about time I post myself rather than constantly trying to find someone struggling like me. It all started about two years ago and I attended counselling last year but I didn't open up and I...

    I wish I could float above my endless thoughts . . need guidance

    I don’t know that I can ever put the thoughts and emotions I have stuck in my head on paper. I don’t know that I can translate the cause of destruction I create from the inside out. The feeling of hate is too simple. It isn’t evil towards another but only myself. Is it shame, embarrassment...
