    My Story

    Hi. I'm a boy and I'm currently 19 years old. I've been shy and quiet my whole life so it takes really long for me to trust people and make friends. I get nervous along with strange people. I remember lying to my friends that I can't come to play mostly just because I wanted to be alone, by...

    Okay so like. I’m not gonna lie, I do have some mental issues with my depression. I tend to ruin people’s lives who hurt me. And I searched up “I like ruining people’s lives” on google and a bunch of shit popped up that said how to “avoid hcp, borderlines and narcissists” I don’t like being...

    New to SAD forum, would love support

    Hi, I joined this forum today to find support from other SAD sufferers. I can predict every year that by mid October, my mood will crash. During spring and summer, I am positive and proactive with sunbeams coming out of me. I dread October. I start worrying about how my mood will be each year...

    To Be or Not To Be

    I went to the doctor for the first time in months, as I realized I probably should go back on medication before I completely lose it. I just went to my regular family doctor, as I had seen the other doctor on-site give my friend antidepressants. We had never discussed my mental health or what I...

    My husband of 29 years (who I have 4 kids with) left me for a 18 yr old three months ago, my neighbour is still in contact with my husband and I found out last night that she was pregnant. I don’t know how to feel, I’m upset but at the same time I’m glad he’s gone. We were close throughout the...

    Can’t I just feel normal?

    It seems like my life is progressing, and I’m just sitting back & watching it all happen, not involved, not helping, just here, behind the curtain watching. But it’s me, it’s my voice I hear talking to people and my peppy little happy tone... but it’s also not ME. I feel like I have been in...

    Confused, lost, overwhelmed... Who knows but you really just want to cry!

    So almost 2 years ago I had a counselor suggest I had BPD... Without much of a thought I dismissed her. Over the past year I have struggled with myself, my identity and most of all with my relationships. I feel so disconected and unable to put into word how hopeless and stuck I feel. Was I...

    So tired of pretending 😔

    I'm so tired of pretending to be ok, that I'm emotional exhausted. So ive ended up coming back to live with my parents, which as a 42 year old man is a shock to the system. Don't get me wrong, my parents are supportive and I wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for them. So after things fell...

    Cold Turkey

    I had to go cold turkey from my meds because my doctor won't fill my scripts until I see psychiatrist and I've been having self harming and other bad thoughts. I have grounding techniques and usually too tired to do anything, but it's constantly on my mind since I stopped my meds and alcohol...
