    How do I deal with this depression when I can't seek anyone's help?

    Hello everyone. This my is my first post and I jumped right to writing this after reading some basic rules so sorry if I'm doing something wrong. Also sorry if this post is long, I just need to vent this out. I literally have no one to talk to about this. (Note: I'm only asking for...

    Does anyone else feel like they can't do anything?

    Does anyone else feel like they've come to a dead end, like there's nothing else to live on/off of. I'm currently on leave from my job because I was hospitalized for the fifth time a month ago. I have intensive outpatient program three days a week which is not nearly as much time that I would...

    Wonderland's lacklustre adventures

    After recently disappearing down the rabbit hole again into psychosis almost causing a hospital admission for violent hallucinations (violent towards myself rather than anyone else), I feel somewhat flat now. I don't know what it is that is causing this feeling, but I have literally zero energy...

    I can't take the pain of existance anymore.

    I can't take the pain of existance anymore. EVERY single person I have EVER cared about has abandoned me. I will NEVER find any new friends. My ONLY dream in life is dead. I have literally nothing to live for.

    Seeking help/tips.

    So, lately my life is being overwhelming and I'm making myself get back to the doctors for further help. (Every time I've tried to seek help in the past, I've either thought myself out of it or never went back. But I feel like I'm literally stuck in a bubble that I can't get out of.) First...

    Lonely, Scared, Confused

    Hi, I was depressed and needed to talk to someone or at least find others that could understand how I feel. My whole world is literally upside down now. I don't know where or if I tell my situation but at least I can say how I feel. Thank you.

    I don't know why I feel so sad

    It's hard to express how I feel, everyday feels like a constant battle with myself and I don't know why. I have a job, a roof over my head, a beautiful fiancée and a great family. But everyday I feel like crying or like I'm going around in circles and I'm not ever progressing even though I am. I...

    Just so much abuse

    Hi everyone, I'm not really sure where to begin. I've been abused for pretty much my whole life. First by a family member and bullies at school and then by boyfriends as I got older. It's only just stopped. And now that I'm in a good place I'm realising that I have no idea how to come to terms...

    Am I disgusting?

    People always say that love finds you, you need to love yourself before someone can love you etc etc. But how am I supposed to love myself when literally no one ever shows interest in me? My last boyfriend was when I was 16, I turn 22 in two months. Since then no one has even tried flirting with...
