    First Day of Second Semester

    It's so weird to be back at school. I've seen so many familiar faces, but new ones as well. My classes are really great as well as my professors. I had anxiety in the morning, so I took my medication. Man, I wish I didn't have anxiety and depression problems. Life would be a lot more easy-going...

    Just Want to Hide Away

    My family will be doing Christmas dinner and gifts tomorrow on Boxing Day, if my sister and brother-in-law can make it through the mountains. All I want to do is stay snug in my bed with the covers pulled up to my chin. I don't feel like seeing anyone or trying to pretend to be happy for...

    the story of my life

    It is quiet. Around here, around me. In me. Birds stopped singing, trees stopped moving, waters stopped flowing. Everything came to a halt. It is silent. Who am I? What is my purpose here? Will I ever have a purpose? Will I be fighting alone in my life? Alone. Lonely. Will I be able to cope with...

    Stopping automatic negative thoughts?

    Sometimes I feel like my mind just doesn’t know how to cooperate with my mood and let me think in a happy way. What I mean is I can be in a good mood and ruin it with stuff like “god I wish I was dead” or facts/memories that bring me shame and emharrasment. I do this all the time. When I’m...

    Try again?

    I guess this is most appropriate forum. I have been suicidal since 16, perhaps earlier, but that is the age I most remember being suicidal. I'm 26 now. I attempted when I was 22, and again about 1 year and 4 months ago, when I was 24. My first attempt was fairly halfassed as I only a higher...

    I Don't Know What To Do Anymore.

    I'll start by saying that I don't believe I am depressed? I mean there are people who have been through way worse than what I have so I'm not quite sure and I feel bad thinking I am. Regardless, This is about a heartbreak, I know how original. I had been with this person for a while, shit...

    About my Sister, again

    I guess I really am bipolar because I can't sleep since my sister was totally condescending to me because I refused to take sides in an ongoing argument she has with my son. She seeks to punish me for what my son said to her. I am continuing to defend myself in my mind. My birthday is Saturday...
