    First post

    In a 3 year on and off long-distance-relationship that just ended (again). He is Japanese, so we had a lot of miscommunications. Particularly when we texted. We both preferred phone calls as we understood each other better that way. We hadn’t called in 6 months, what with the time difference...

    "My own fault" feelings?

    Does anyone feel ashamed of their mental health condition? I'd somehow like to think that my mental health condition is my own fault and that I should just stop ignoring my problems and fix them now.
