    the story of my life

    It is quiet. Around here, around me. In me. Birds stopped singing, trees stopped moving, waters stopped flowing. Everything came to a halt. It is silent. Who am I? What is my purpose here? Will I ever have a purpose? Will I be fighting alone in my life? Alone. Lonely. Will I be able to cope with...

    Hello everyone

    I'm 22 and I have mental health problems from two years now. At first I was treated for depression, but maybe that's not the major problem. I really need some place where I can talk about these stuff because no one around actually understands how hard is it for me to fight my demons. My friends...

    So alone

    So today/yesterday (I haven’t slept yet) a friend of over 10 years publicly “name & shame”d me to some 500 people with some pretty serious false allegations. Now I have so many people I don’t even know that are wishing me dead, saying what a horrible person I am and how much they hope I suffer...

    How to help a friend with depression

    Hi, I started university about 3 months ago and became really close friends with a boy living opposite me. About a month into knowing each other he told me that he had depression and that he was taking medication for it. After this, I would try and keep asking him how he was and making sure he...

    Seeking out help for a dear friend

    Hello, I am writing this with my phone very late at night so please forgive me for any spelling mistakes. I'll get straight to the point. A friend of mine suffers from multiple personality disorder, and as someone who isn't very educated on this topic I want to know if what I have been doing (as...

    Friend makes an asshole comment and I want to go into borderline rage

    Hi, When I am away from the psych community I am not sure if I really am sick or if psychiatry likes to medicalize people, but i know that I can learn from this stuff a lot, just as I relate to ADHD people, and just as i relate to some things about autism. I know there are some principles in...

    Dark sides to my personality

    I find I engage conflict sometimes, enjoy combative or litigious behavior, and while i think that critical thinking is important, i don't want to burn through friends bu picking fights. Anyone who likes deep discussion about philosophical and psychological topics and is ok with aggression and...

    Dealing with rejection

    I was rejected by an old friend who I fell in love with and who didn't reply to my email. A lot of men I feel care only for their own feelings. I know that is a strong statement but is how I feel. I got interviewed for jobs that I didn't get. My current volunteer employer hasn't emailed me...

    Top of the world, back down to earth

    I started seeing my best friend as more than a friend, having left my previous partner who was not good for my mental health, it was the happiest I have been in years, genuinely felt like nothing could stop me, suddenly she has put the breaks on the whole thing, something I can understand as...

    Ex Friends

    So i had two friends who were my very best friends in the whole world. Like we did everything together and we told each other everything, it was really great for about 5 of the 7 years that we knew each other. As we got older and in high school things started to get really bad between us. They...

    Don't know how to stop

    I feel I'm pushing everyone away. I'm distant with my friends and family. But worst of all is how I keep getting angery at my girlfriend for every bit of critisism. If she says my hair is too messy to meet her friends, I take it as an attack. She's all but dumped me at this point and I don't...

    maybe somebody can relate

    so I have pushed away most of my friends and family due to negative emotions (blaming, addiction, paranoia, anger, recklessness etc). I feel like I need to get away from them in order to fully recover. I noticed major improvements since cutting almost all contact with friends and family. I...
