    My dad makes me feel depressed and suicidal

    New here. My name is Madi and I’m on here because I don’t really have anyone to talk to about this. For the past few years I’ve been getting not nice comments from my dad. It started off as comments about my weight. When I would eat (even if it was healthy) he would look at me and say stuff like...

    BPD - rant - frustration.

I went through a trauma as a child, the kind of trauma no one person should have to experience, never-mind a child of 9, for several years. Is it any wonder that I shut down and as a direct consequence didn't...

    Done with everything

    I feel so lonely/sad/pissed off/frustrated/upset/numb/overwhelmed. I just want to give up. I want to stop existing for a while. I want to hide under my duvet and be left the f**k alone for a while. I feel so isolated and frustrated. I feel like I just go round in circles. I can't even cry.
