    Right vs wrong vs me

    I've been in a complicated situation recently. I've had issues with depression and other mh. A friend of mine with bigger issues than believed or said events took place. The thing is I saw alot to contradict. I told her. But I don't know how I feel. I'm a mixture of worried, confused and exhausted.

    Frustrated to death

    I'm depressed because I can't do anything due to OCD. I can't even think. Typing this takes a long time, because of intrusive thoughts. All my friends are busy, and my parents have their hands full looking after me. Getting through hours and hours of nothing to do, and intrusive thoughts running...

    Anxiety won't let me sleep until completely exhausted

    Hello everyone, I'm 22 and I've been suffering from anxiety for almost 4 years, going on and off some medication but without it (or psychoanalytic theory) doing anything about it. Lately I've found myself not being able to sleep until I'm completely exhausted. Whenever I try and turn off the...

    I was diagnosed with anorexia mid 2014. And am at a "healthy" weight. I just feel like a complete nut case. When I don't eat whether it be for a few days or a week.

    How do I keep going?

    I don't think I can take much more. I alternate between happy sad hyper depressed hopeful hopeless, over and over and over again. How does anyone keep going? I don't want this to end badly, permanently for me. But I don't know if I'll be able to control my actions for much longer. I'm so...

    Hopeless hours

    They come randomly throughout the day. I am "only" mildly depressed according to my scale, but i may as well be unable to get up from bed because mentally, that is the only place i want to be. I'd love to add a picture here but don't know how. It is of a woman laying on her side, her arms...

    Just exhausted or is it due to decrease in med?

    I've been taking Prozac since the end of last year and it's not worked for me. I've had a huge breakdown so my doctor advised me to take the week off and take half of my dose so she can switch me to another. I've taken the week off work and it's just as well because I am exhausted. I can't...

    I need a hug

    I've slowly been recovering, I've gotten back into hobbies and freelancing my art and I even managed to land myself a part time job which is something I'd never dreamed I'd be able to do. Except today I feel like human garbage. I had a customer at work complain to my manager that I folded her...

    I lived 80 years in 18

    I feel like I went through as much crap in 18 years than most people go through by the end of their life. Now that I'm 27, I'm way over due and totally exhausted. I feel like I am permanently spent. I have already used up everything that I was given to use over my entire lifespan. I fast-tracked...
