    I'm losing patience with people

    I feel like I'm becoming angrier and angrier and I try so hard not to. I realize and know that I'm not better then anyone. There are a few people in my life who I just can't get along with anymore and I feel really bad because they like me. One of them is my older brother's wife. I feel really...

    Need some help/advice for my anxiety

    I was a pretty popular guy in high school, I played baseball and had many friends. I always had bad anxiety but I was able to hide it very well and nobody knew except for one of my good friends. I have since gone on to college but I transferred and this is my first semester at my new school. I...

    So I'm most of the way through a bottle of red and thinking how nice it would be to have a Bristol BPD buddy to hang out with. Everyone's so flatline compared to me, and I think it would just be so great to hang out with someone who truly understands BPD and de facto me. I just can't help...

    I'm all alone

    I have no boyfriend and no real friends and even if I had it wouldn't really matter.Only thing I ever had was my family and now it's falling apart although it already was pretty messed up.I hate my dad's wife for standing between him and me, she really irritates me to the point I feel like...

    Bad social life

    My social life is like a cupboard that's sparsely populated with mouldy condiments. I know what I have is bad, but if I throw it out, there's nothing left. Does anyone else hang on to bad friends? *Sigh* Sorry everyone. I'm down again :(

    I'm back and feeling like [email protected]

    Last night my 'couple of drinks' ended up being 8 gin and tonics, countless pints and several shots. I woke up in bed with two ladies of the evening and had spent around 250 quid on booze and them.... Today has been like a depressive episode, that's how bad my hangovers get. And I knew I could...

    Got impatient

    Few days ago, I was feeling pretty down.unmotivated, so I attempted to text some friends to hang out, to get out of the house and just socialize. Everyone seemed to busy or not reply, I started to get a little agitated. I was then talking to one friend and he wasn't busy but then he said "Not...

    On edge, can never relax around my friends

    Something weird has been happening over the past few weeks. I'm a generally anxious person with a history of social anxiety, however I'm fine when I'm around people that I've known for a while, but now when I go and hang out with them, I feel really, really anxious and paranoid. I can't look...

    Feeling Distressed

    I'm feeling a lot of distress. For the most part, I've worn out my dangerous impulses towards self-oblivion just by surviving them and having those types of actions just compound the crisis. Lately, due to a long series of failures and health hassles, I just never feel good anymore. And, at...
