    Failing school from anxiety

    I am 18 and would be graduating high school in a month if it wasn’t for my anxiety. 2 years ago my anxiety was at its worst point ever in my life, so I stupidly decided that I wanted to be homeschooled for the rest of highschool. The year after that I started homeschooling however I had to wait...

    Failing school, no hope

    Hello, I am failing out of nursing school and I don’t know what to do. I want to be a nurse but it just doesn’t seem possible for me. I can’t help but to wonder if I’d be having this issue if I didn’t have bipolar disorder. I can’t relate to anyone in my life because no one I know is failing...

    First Day of Second Semester

    It's so weird to be back at school. I've seen so many familiar faces, but new ones as well. My classes are really great as well as my professors. I had anxiety in the morning, so I took my medication. Man, I wish I didn't have anxiety and depression problems. Life would be a lot more easy-going...

    My social anxiety is really hurting me

    I'm a 22 year old girl. I've had social anxiety since I was seven years old- I lost my mother that year in a car accident I was also in. Then my little brother, dad and I moved across the country and I started a new school a couple months after this. I was bullied badly in school from 2nd grade...

    Hello.

    I'm certainly not very good with introductions, and English isn't my first language, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes I make in my writing. I just hope it's enough to understand each other. I was bullied all throughout middle school and some of highschool. I've always been a quiet...

    Professor anxiety

    Ugh, the nicer a school you go to, the bigger the egos of everyone around you, especially the profs. I had a neuroscience prof who never replies to emails like a normal human being. You can feel him reading your email and deliberately not replying to boost himself up over you. There is no...

    What is wrong with me?

    Hi all, i've never posted on any sort of forum before, but i thought i'd give it a try. I have battled depression ever since I was very young. I am an only child, and have the epitome of helicopter parents. My childhood involved large amounts of stress for me as a kid and overbearing...

    My lover isn't doing very well

    Hello, I'm not accustomed to talk on the internet so sorry if I seem "awkward" or post this thread on the wrong forum, honestly I'm quite anxious to speak about this in such a place haha. So I'm in a relationship with someone a little bit younger than me (I'll be 20 in 2019 and he'll be 17). A...

    'fat & slutty'

    I have always felt different and socially awkward. I often say the wrong thing and seem to rub people up the wrong way in my social life. My work with the Homeless is something that I excel in. Helping someone else helps me forget my own problems, even if it is only for a short while. Right...

    Need Help

    As I have done time and time again for the past 6 years, I called a suicide hotline today. The difference was, today, I promised myself I would try everything I can to get better. I was a happy person until late high school, when all of the sudden I started to feel lonely and depressed...

    Afraid to look mom in the eye

    My mom always let my older brother get by with beating me and my little sister. All she would do was scold him. When I was in 2’nd grade (about 7 years old) mom beat the hell out of (more like physically and mentally tortured) me, my older brother and little sister with belts, coat hangers...

    What should I have done?

    Basically there’s an exam today, but I’m so anxious about it and really not ready for it. In the same day I also have a meeting where I have to talk to people I don’t know, and have to help set up an event with even more people and I was just getting more and more anxious. At the same time I’m...

    I hate myself and my life (not suiccidal, but wish I would not live).

    Feeling really shit right now so felt like typing about it. I know it won't change anything nor have I ever been on a forum before similar to this. But just felt like typing it down regardless. I will most likely not even revisit this post, so don´t waste time writing comments. So this is my...

    I feel so empty

    Hi guys, I don't know whether it is right to post in this threads since I am not sure whether I am having a depression or not. So here is my story. When I was a kid, I start to imagine things that is unrealistic. Most of my imagination are based on the things or event that did not happen in...
