    No way out

    So.. This year has been the hardest by far. Just as I was starting to feel better & stronger, nudes explicit photos of me were posted everywhere online and sent to practically everybody I know by malicious evil people set out to ruin my life. Every waking moment now I absolutely hate. Constantly...

    I signed up to a free dating site ..

    Meh. Some girls look and sound great, but instead of feeling relaxed and attracted - I feel stressed out and anxious. It just makes me feel inferior. They have photos from social situations where they are happy and smiley. I have not had such photos for over 10 years now. I live with my dad...

    New Here, hoping for a better understanding ing

    Hi All, Not sure if I should even be on this or if what I have or think I have or do is enough to warrant being on here so apologies if it’s not. I’ve been suffering with anxiety for a few years, and maybe even OCD but I don’t know if it’s severe enough to be called that, I worry about...

    Depression Reaching it's Tentacles Into My Life Again

    Maybe it has something to do with coming home to police blocking a section of my street right in front of my apartment building a few weeks ago. I posted about that in relation to having my PTSD triggered. I don't know. I've just been feeling this slide back down into depression, and it seems...

    detached from childhood photos

    This freaked me out yesterday. I don't tend to look back at my childhood photos. A few years ago my nan sent me a photo album filled with photos of me when i was a kid as a christmas present. It's not really been an item i've treasured and has been sat gathering dust in a cupboard for a long...

    Have messed my life up

    I just feel like I've made a huge mess of my life. I was with my partner for 20 years and unhappy for the last 7. We have 2 children together. At the beginning of last year, I met someone out of the blue. He absolutely swept me off my feet. It was like something you would see in the movies! He...

    Extreme camera shyness

    Since I was a teenager I have always hated having my photo taken. When someone gets the camera out I move away from them. I feel uncomfortable looking at photos of myself because I worry that I look stupid and that everyone is laughing at me. I'm worse when people record videos. I hate seeing...

    Knowing you're unattractive

    I don't think a person has to be depressed to realize they're unattractive. But I'm afflicted with both and every so often I take camera photos of myself. Because I enjoy having scientific proof that I'm just truly quite hard on the eyes. And then I get upset. But I keep taking photos! As...

    I know that the first sentence of a thread is visible on the activity stream and don't want anyone triggered, so blah blah... blahday blahday blahday blahday. OK I hope that's enough.... Ok, to cut the long story short, my grandad molested me as a child, and throughout my teens there was lots...

    What do I do with myself? **Trigger Warning**

    Here's an issue I have that haunts me each waking second of my life: I never feel like I am good enough. No matter what it is I will feel like I am inadequate, and because of these inadequacies, whether it be that I am not intelligent enough, not wealthy enough, not successful enough, not...

    I've been wanting to get this off my chest for a while but have been too scared. I really do apologise if I'm saying anything I shouldn't. I'm aware of the SH guidlines and would NEVER intentionally post anything that might be harmful to others - I understand if this has to be moderated/removed...

    My Battle with Depression and how I Fight it

    Ok, I’d like to start off by saying that I am not qualified in treating depression in anyway. I’ve not even been diagnosed with it. I am however convinced that I have been suffering from it for the last few years, finding myself hitting rock bottom (at least I think it was) about 4 months ago...
