    Dark Fantasies

    Hey there sports fans! I hope you're all having a completely bearable day. When I was 14 I watched as my best friend was brutally murdered. At the time we were both involved in various petty illegal activities. Because of this, I felt unable to tell a single soul that I was there when it...

    Trying to process my guilt and anger at friend with depression...

    I'm having trouble processing my guilt and anger. My bff has been upset at me and ignoring my messages most of the time. My friend has undiagnosed depression, but it's clear he has depression, as he's had thoughts of suicide. (I have tried to get him to get help, but he never does. Finally he...

    Why do I feel like this? Is relocation depression a thing?

    I apologize if I put this in the wrong forum, but I am lost. Sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes. :/ There’s no real way to discribe what’s going on other than to just say it. Everytime I have a change of “place” I get this horrible feeling of guilt, anxiety, and depression. I have a few...

    Shame

    Does anyone have a life of shame? I'll try not to explain too much detail, but since i was 18 (62 now), i'll had to cope with it. When the shame began, it was like in a matter of only 3 days time. I just hit me like a sunami. My mind became flooded with very vivid and explicit sexual thoughts...

    Just out of hospital and not strong enough for this..

    Hey there. I realise this is probably not an ideal post and I should be battling this in my own, but I am recently out of hospital due to throat issues, am very (legally!) drugged up and don’t seem to have the strength to fight this. For some context - I'm male and a sufferer of chronic OCD...

    Guilt OCD and confessing

    Hello! I've had different types of OCD thoughts. But when guilt from a past mistake comes up, it's always the worst because it's been done. Sometimes it's hard to know if it's the OCD twisting my mind, or if I should confess. Three years ago, I went to Prague on a trip with the company I worked...

    Why?

    Why do people only tell you how much they love you when they think you want to off yourself? Because your death is an inconvenience and they dont wanna have to deal with the guilt - idiots. Everyone needs to read up on nhilism and how irrelevant everything is.

    How can I allow myself to enjoy myself?

    How can I allow myself to enjoy myself? I quit/ abandoned my job which was the most stupid mistake. It was very stupid and very irresponsible but my anxiety was sky high and I just wanted relief which never came of course. I'm not asking for sympathy for that. I've been without work one month...

    Guilt woven into my depression

    Not sure why I'm posting this - I guess I just need to get it out so that it is not going round and round in my head. I've stopped going to my therapist cause after 3 sessions they made me realize that guilt has played a huge factor in my life and continues to do so. For example, people out...

    Guilt For a borderline.

    Hey, I've been in therapy for 10 months, I've done well but I still struggle as some of you may know. I'm struggling with guilt right now- or maybe it's fear it flits between the 2. At times I'm afraid I've done something wrong and at times I'm certain I've done something wrong so I feel...
