    Judge me pls

    It's very important for me to be fair with the others and when it comes to me I feel that I'm never fair although I think I am. I don't know how to explain it but it's like if I thought I don't deserve to be in peace with myself and I don't know how to solve it. Four to five years ago I...

    I feel ok now

    Been drinking, upped my medication over the legal limit today, don’t feel so anxious or depressed. Anything for a tiny bit of relief. Sad, really. Best friends birthday celebrations tonight and I sat at home drinking on my own because I was too anxious and down to see my friends. Is this the...

    I want to be a better friend

    Hi. I hope everyone is OK. I've recently realized that I'm not a good friend at all, and most of the people who knew me in Uni have quickly deserted me because of it. It hurts so much, but I feel I'm not good for people anymore. I put so much effort into being friends with people, I'll bend...

    I had to get rid of a best friend

    I don't want this to be too long, but, I would like say that I am succumbing to the worst side effects during the aftermath of recovering from a toxic relationship. Now, the relationship itself was never heated, and I never argued with the person, but, once I found out one of my friends was a...

    outthinking the bad thoughts

    This is something I think about when my brain is telling me that I'm a bad person to be around. Sometimes it helps. Last school year was a rollercoaster of mood swings, most of them depressive. At one point, I felt guilty every time I went to see friends because I was convinced that my...

    I'm Lost

    I feel so alone. I really don't know what to do or where to turn. My partner is severely depressed and I've tried everything I can to help him but nothing has worked.
