    I gave up on dating all together....

    I’m done trying to find someone who wants me. I’m done with even trying to make friends. It always ends the same for me so I vow never to open up to anyone ever again or even let them get to know me. They’ll just end up hating who I actually am as always. I am done getting my hopes up high and...

    Hi, I’m 20 and suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder. I started my new job at the beginning of February and I really enjoy it, the people are nice and I’m managing, some might even say happy. I got a letter in the post saying I can start therapy soon. Something that I signed up for over...

    Hi all. I'm new here. I have been dealing with depression and anxiety for a long time. I'm an addict and I've been clean for almost a year and a half.

    I'm doing well, I'm where I want to be but I'm still so miserable

    I've suffered depression chronically, I started to feel more inspired and a little happier. I got into college after working for 4 years in places that I hated so it was the extremely exciting that I had gotten a place because It's the one thing I'm most passionate about. It made me happy, gave...

    How do I break the cycle?

    I've noticed that I have this cycle. It consists of feeling down, low self esteem, paranoia that no one cares or people that do I question it, crying, no energy (I just want to lay here) and even get to the point where I just dont want to exist anymore. Then the next stage is picking myself...

    Tired of getting up everyday

    Why do I feel like giving up? I have depression and I believe I am bipolar too. I take Lexapro and Lamictal daily. Yet I still feel like life isn’t worth it. I’m not suicidal just done. The best way to describe me is like a chameleon, I just want to blend in. I can change my personality...

    Suicide failure

    I very recently tried to commit suicide and I was so relieved and happy. But then help came. And I keep going through in my head what I should have done to avoid that. And I can’t stop thinking about how much I wished it had worked. I was so close. I didn’t get that feeling of regret some people...

    How can I treat what I am feeling?

    I am wondering is there ways to treat depression without going to a doctor or therapist? Like some sort of medicine I can just walk into wall-greens and get? Rather nobody know. I'm not even sure if I have depression though, but I do know that I find little joy in really anything, even when I...

    Looking for friends

    Hey. I'm new and quite desperate to make some friends. I need to find someone to talk to about my depression and anxiety, but no one I know irl really gets it.

    Want to feel happy and not pretend
