    Does it help to know someone is there for you?

    I'm asking what feel like some dumb questions right now, but I'm hoping the only stupid question is the one you don't ask... When you're depressed, does it help to know someone is there for you, even if they're not present? I feel like I'm treading a fine line between letting my depressed...

    Partner pushing me away

    Hi my partner has depression which he has medication for but I believe he needs other support via counselling exercise and diet but he won’t try. He is now in bed for two days at a time, flipping out over silly things and now says he doesn’t love me and it’s my fault he has depression. I snapped...

    PTSD, GAD, MDD= Borderline Personality Disorder

    It's living through emotional hell ( turmoil ), each and every day. The mind continues to overthink, overtime. The doubts start rising, the paranoia begins. It's like one moment you are happy and in a split second, your mood completely changes. You feel unworthy, unloved and if others hurt...

    Need advice

    Been with my other half for 3 years, got 2 babies. I am constantly paranoid that he will realise he can do better, and leave. I left an extremely violent relationship about 10 years ago, then married to a controlling ​man. My partner is the polar opposite of both of these guys. We never argue...

    Does anybody deal with hoarding?

    Hoarding runs in my family and it is particularly bad in my mother. My father is a cowardly enabler that has never done nothing to help her. He always ignored the problem and made passive-aggressive comments to her constantly. The hoarding has utterly destroyed their home. Mice and rats have...

    Good book

    Most people have read the books by M. Scott Peck. I look to him as a father figure and someone who can teach me about life. I have not had that calm and patient parenting and although my mum and dad both love me, they have not prepared me for life very well so as i approach middle age, i am...

    If life's done anything for me in the last few years, it's teach me a lot Lately I've been thankful for my depression, my anxiety and my gender dysphoria. If I'd not hit low points like self harm, alcohol abuse, hitting the herb and pushing everyone out of my life till I felt so worthless...

    I'm not sure whether resentment is the correct word to use but lately I've been finding myself being so resentful towards people I care about. Today for instance one of my best friends passed her driving test. I know I should be happy for her as she was over the moon, but instead I found myself...

    Horizontal or vertical

    I am not sure what recovery means to me now but it seems the most fitting place for me to begin to write on this forum. I have managed to lessen my more "chemical" problems but am left with others. Most significantly: confidence, isolation, anger with others who have let me down, lack of...
