    New here!

    Hi:) I'm glad to be here. I have been struggling with depression/anxiety all my life, and almost 47 years old. I struggle with negative thoughts all the time and try really hard to stop them at the time that they enter my head, but some days it's one after the other. It's so frustrating. My...

    Hey there

    Hey everybody. I came across this forum through a Google search. I don't have a support system at home or the money to go to therapy, so I'm hoping to find a little help here at an overwhelming time in my life. Thank you.

    Having a bit of a moment

    Hi everyone, I have BPD traits (emotional dysregulation, fear of abandonment, paranoia at times etc) and the worst thing is I can be fine one day but not ok at all the next, and moods change in one day. I have rang the GP, hopefully I will get an appointment tomorrow. I'm not happy with my...

    The Burden of Obsession

    Hey everyone, I'd just like to share my experiences with you guys - I'm curious to hear your thoughts. I find myself constantly on edge, in the sense that relaxation is an impossibility. If I am busy I am a lot more 'relaxed' in a sense. I never truly feel calm, and I find it hard to enjoy...

    Social anxiety around family

    I had a very weird experience at my dads house a couple of days ago. I have had pretty severe social anxiety for as long as I can remember, even around my own family. My grandmother asked me how/what I’ve been doing, and I completely froze up and was physically unable to answer her. Even with my...

    I died

    I know I had made a post yesterday but I did not get to the core of why I feel the way I do. I feel like there is no returning to who I was before because of these thoughts. I am currently in an emotionless state. I feel nothing. And in this state of nothingness I have come to ponder over...

    I overdosed.

    This has been quite awhile ago, but i still to this day have never felt the same. I think I may have caused brain damage, to what extent i do not know. I don't have money to find out, so I was seeing if there's any nice people that have had insight into this situation.

    Do I cut contact with the NHS?

    I told them this morning I want a new care coordinator after telling them for months. I said you tell me either way by the end of the day, or that's it I am not dealing with them anymore. I got no call... Shall I keep to what I said? I would find it hard not to if I am honest and this has...

    The funny side of misery.

    I'd like to know if anyone else finds them self laughing or making jokes about themselves, or the things that depression makes them do. Sure I spend a long time in tears, and desperate, and a mess. I do my best to avoid talking to people, or holding a conversation if I can, but I have started...
