    My whole body hurts. It keeps happening and only SH really helps. I thought I was doing it because of exams but they are all over now. I don't know what the trigger has been and I dont want to leave the house or get up in the mornings. I'm not sleeping well and am very agitated.

    anyone suspect they know what causes their illness but cant/wont do anything about it?

    anyone suspect they know what causes their illness but cant/wont do anything about it? I recently have come to the conclusion that I know what has caused me to uffer with depression and anxiety for all these years. But even if I accept that this thing is the case, there is nothing I can do...

    Heart's breaking

    I'm in a funnel of despair that's taking me down. Why is he leaving his family like this? He's hurting so many people, so many more people than he can even fathom right now. And he has no idea how much he is hurting me right now either. I'll be talking with him in a week from tomorrow, but I...

    Just need someone to talk to...

    Okay so over the last couple of weeks I've been self harming nearly every night. I feel like I just can't cope with everything going on right now.

    To get over the past

    Does anyone else here have depression due to childhood or trauma, and if so do you ever really get over it, or just learn to live with it hurting a little less each day?

    Unwanted Admirer

    In my journal I mentioned going to the cinema with a guy who later gave me flowers. Since then he turned up at my home unannounced (having asked a local where I lived)...I was out. And he turns up at my hotel when I am over-nighting there. Well, I was lonely and don't like hurting peoples...

    Is this normal?

    Okay, so... here's the deal. I am finally coming clean with these thoughts I have. OVer the past few weeks, I have been having suicidal/homicidal thoughts.

    Diagnose me!!!

    Some people think I'm dumb, some think I'm crazy and some think I'm rude but the thing that bothers me the most is when I can't make friends and even if I do the relationships usually don't last. It is so hard, I want to be likeable if not loveable. I want to be like those normal people at the...
