    So sad

    I can't think straight. Nothing seems to feel ok. Everything bad, awful, miserable. Hate this. No wish to live like this. Want to feel better. Feel lazy, sad, too fat, too old to do what I want. Constantly tired or distracted, brain fog. Someone I loved and invested so much time in got...

    So terribly lonely...

    Hi everyone, I'm not a native speaker so excuse me for the errors. I'm in my late 20s, moved to a foreign country to study and am finishing my degree next month.

    I've never felt worse

    My whole life I struggled with problems. As a kid i was often picked as a bullying target which made me insecure and sad. I never felt good enough and like i didn't fit in.
