    I'm 31 years old and have had depression and anxiety since I was probably 11. I had therapy for social anxiety and touched on depression too, and my anxiety is better but not my depression, and the problem is that the things I learned in therapy don't really work because the negative thoughts I...

    Loss of pleasure in things...

    So I'm not feeling like I get pleasure from anything much, but I'm not sure if I'm just misunderstanding what pleasure feels like, or maybe I just don't do particularly enjoyable things? I used to enjoy food and cooking, it's a chore these days. I have no libido. I struggle to read quite often...

    STILL hopefull

    Depression. They say keep moving no matter what even if it feels bad. I have managed to get past the point of getting out of bed, brushing my teeth etc. I got upset with myself for not being able to do something I usually would not mind doing. Ok so. Healing is still going. The depression has...

    How can I allow myself to enjoy myself?

    How can I allow myself to enjoy myself? I quit/ abandoned my job which was the most stupid mistake. It was very stupid and very irresponsible but my anxiety was sky high and I just wanted relief which never came of course. I'm not asking for sympathy for that. I've been without work one month...

    Nothing seems to help

    I've had depression for at least 3 years and it's only gotten worse as times gone by. I sometimes have days where I would feel fine and motivated and what not, but it seems those days are just coming by less and less. I never have the drive to do anything, I don't even enjoy anything anymore. I...

    Enjoy making others feel bad, confused

    This is a newer thing for me, maybe it's been happening for a year or two. I enjoy seeing people agry and upset because it amuses me to see their lack of control. When someone screams at me, I just smile and sometimes laugh at them while they cry. I do have feelings, I have several animals...

    new here, introducing myself

    Hi all, I'm new here, and just introducing myself. I was part of an online mental health support website a few years ago and found it very enjoyable. I haven't been on since that one closed down, but decided that I would like to join another community to both offer, and receive support...

    Do your voices enjoy a joke?

    I can remember since I was young maybe around 16, my voices always enjoyed when I would make them laugh. I would enjoy it too. If I imagined things that made me laugh before, like movies, they would laugh right along. Its a part of my life that I can always remember sort of enjoying. I never...

    Had Enough

    I am so unhappy, I don't know where to begin? I first started to feel mentally unwell around 16 years ago and since then I just feel that I have gradually declined to the point I am now, where I have simply had enough! I am morbidly obese and have carried this around with me my whole life, I...

    Do i post too much?

    I have been wondering lately if I'm too active on the forum. I don't want to be a menace to this wonderful community which welcomed me with open arms, and minds. I just looked in the chill out lounge and damn near the whole first page I made the last post. I've come to hold dear my friends...

    It just doesn't matter anymore, does it?

    I can't feel anything. I don't know if it's because of my medications or whatever. And after reading that comment about someone getting their brain damaged after taking seroquel, I'm scared that I might have it. Because I can't feel my emotions anymore. I don't see the point in living anymore if...

    running on empty

    Hello all I have experienced some degree of depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember, and while it has been worse in the past, it really feels like the end of the road is ahead. After moving around a lot in the late 2000s and feeling very isolated, I began reaching out in 2009...
