    saturday night safe chat

    anyone up for talking for a bit? I'm not great. about anything, you pick a topic?

    I signed up to a free dating site ..

    Meh. Some girls look and sound great, but instead of feeling relaxed and attracted - I feel stressed out and anxious. It just makes me feel inferior. They have photos from social situations where they are happy and smiley. I have not had such photos for over 10 years now. I live with my dad...

    Mood not sustainable

    Can't focus on anything. Even just trying to sit in the car listening to radio 4 is hard. This is not sustainable and I don't know how to fix it. Medication perhaps but it kills my creativity. Been off it now for months and things were great but now I have lost clarity. I just see red...

    new person

    I found this online sight today because I don't like talking to people about my issues who can't relate. I don't think I will get any better but it will sure be great if I'm able to find others who have similar problems. That will make me happy. So hello everyone!

In the early stages of our relationship it is now easy to look back and see that she was dealing with anxiety but did not realise herself that she had depressive symptoms. Her symptoms became a...

    Spiralling downwards......

    How can a guy who everybody else think is so confident, feel like I do. More thoughts in my head, plans made of where I will do it, I just want to wrap myself up in a blanket & sleep for ever. Nothing makes sense, 3 kids, great wife, good home, well paid job ( which I hate) Don’t seem to be able...

    Feeling very lost

    There is a lot of background to this but I don’t want to bore anyone, just want a little bit of advice. So I had a family, we were happy and things seemed to be going great. Now I’m very much alone, living with my mother again at 31 years old. My wife left me awhile back (important to mention I...

    Luke 6:23

    22Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil because of the Son of Man. 23Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For their fathers treated the prophets in the same way.

    It's not just one thing...

    I am struggling very badly. It's just just things piled up, not simply one thing. I have bought of crying, sobbing. I don't want to bother people, I don't want to let people here know how fragile I am. Luckily, I have a great therapist. She is fantastic. I'm on great meds so hopefully, both...
