    Prescriptions to you

    They send my mental health medication aripiprazole in the post now. If I'm not in the postman will leave it in my shed. I wouldn't mind but the drug makes you have suicidal thoughts!

    low self esteem

    I am COMFORTABLE with low self esteem. Who cares what the world says about low self esteem. It is satisfying to be selfcritical and have emotion and weakness... we don't have to be positive all the time, that makes no sense. I would rather be accepting, embracing, analytical, sincere. The...

    For other people

    This is one of the worst things that can happen to someone. It traps you in your beliefs and disbeliefs. It makes you feel shame for any moment of pride. It sucks away your human emotion. It makes you feed into conspiracy just to try to understand what is happening to you. It makes you think...

    I have no one to talk to and nothing makes me happy anymore.

    I get insecure really easily.

    I learned I have an anxious attachment style, which makes sense. I have been getting good email response from my boss and now I am having to wait for a reply and it makes me anxious. My thought is that I embellished my resume which I showed him and that he is upset about it. My thought is...

    Depression makes you ugly?

    Does anyone else find depression makes them more ugly? I know a negative outlook will see the negatives, but I mean I do nothing different with my face/hair yet my hair gets knotty and stringy, looks crap, my face just looks worse - dry skin or whatever. Maybe I'm just not taking the time to do...

    Rage against humanity

    I am alone and I have been very unsuccessful finding friends online to talk to. No one writes back. Online is easier for me because they write in their little post about what they like or are interested in. It makes it easier for me to strike up a conversation when I know something about the...

    I feel so alone and I don't know what to do

    I feel so alone. Everyone around me is getting married or buying a house with their S.O and I'm still in my bedroom crying. It's always in my head but sometimes the feeling is overwhelming. It fills every thought. It makes the muscles in my chest tense and makes each breath a little more...

    Feeling unworthy of being loved

    I remember having a crush on this girl from college and I guess she liked me too but I never really asked because I thought I didn’t deserve her. Now she is married and I regret letting go of her just because I thought I didn’t deserve her love. Even now when I meet a girl and there is mutual...

    What's wrong with me?

    It is so frustrating how little I eat yet I still manage to have fat on me. Other girls my age eat mountains, but they're skinny. I have a friend who is an identical twin; both she and her sister eat nearly thrice the amount I do, but they look like models. I'm not a jealous person, however...
