    A rant about my mental health, I guess

    The problem with depression, eating disorders and anxiety is that is nothing like an 'ordinary illness'. It's not like a cold where you drip snot for a week, get a headache, have a cup of tea and it goes away. No. Chance would be a fine thing. Instead, these mental demons are far more cunning...

    My dad makes me feel depressed and suicidal

    New here. My name is Madi and I’m on here because I don’t really have anyone to talk to about this. For the past few years I’ve been getting not nice comments from my dad.

    Abusive Ex is Telling Everyone I Abused Him

    I don't know what to do. My ex abused me when we dated, yet when I woke up this morning I found a Facebook post by him claiming that I hurt him.

    Fuck I hate these moments. Just random sadness and on the verge of crying. What caused it this time? Realizing I can't drink on my birthday(2 days away). Okay that sounds simple but more so I have a problem. Wound up in the hospital puking blood. They pumped me with fluids (hooked me up to a iv)...

    Take your medication

    I'm sat here at my desk and I just feel fucking ill as hell. I've never been in a prison serving a sentence for a crime but that's what it feels like. And to think this is supposed to be my therapeutic treatment to free me from my torment. BULLSHIT. I'd love to see the shoe on the other...
