    Hello

    Hello, I am new here - but not new to trying to participate in 'normal' life with a brain that functions in ways that make me seem abnormal to others and sometimes to myself. I have met some great people who have helped me along the way since early childhood (I try not to think about the...

    The 'News stories that bother you' thread

    I dont read the news that much, because theres always 2 sides to the story, which happens with people: anyway the story of the young couple whom met their demise while cycling in central asia bothered me. while people think that its a story of two people living more than ever, its also selfish...

    Nothing seems to help

    I've had depression for at least 3 years and it's only gotten worse as times gone by. I sometimes have days where I would feel fine and motivated and what not, but it seems those days are just coming by less and less. I never have the drive to do anything, I don't even enjoy anything anymore. I...

    How can we help?

    Hi. Posting on here to hopefully get some guidance. I have a 21 year old stepdaughter who we think has bipolar. Let me explain. As a child/teenager she was always a challenge. Charming and smiling one minute or rude, moody and quiet the next without any explanation. However we put it down to...

    This world is insane

    Hi members of SAF. Let me start out by saying I think this world is insane or turning insane. I've seen some really creepy things. I used to think it was me but its becoming more evident that I'm maybe not the one. Why is it that 'normal' people get so offended so easily these days? Every time...

    My story, please help - bipolar or else?

    Hi everyone, I want to share my story with you. And I would really appreciate your comments, tips or guidance. I moved to Germany together with my husband 4,5 years ago. 4 years ago we had our little miracle come into this world, our daughter. It was the best thing that had ever happened to...

    Living in a Cursed Household

    I made a revelation today that my mother’s fatal flaw is not pride or narcissism like I initially thought, but insecurity. It’s what leads to her being perceived as narcissistic or prideful. My mother is so insecure about herself, that she physically will not allow herself to experience failure...

    I’m ready to go:(

    I am literally on the verge of ending this, I don’t understand why I should stick around when all my head is telling me to do is end it, I’m 18 but the hard thing about going along is the pain it will cause my family, I just want them to know I’m happy that it will be over, should I write a...

    Am I Real Human being????

    So lately I've been feeling that I'm not real or something in that nature. I relate with humans like when I'm on social media. But in life I don't. I pretty much stay to myself, go on outings alone,stuff in that nature. In reality I have one friend, and all that is fine in all. I don't feel like...

    Worst form of abuse?

    A psychiatrist taking your kid into a room to play a game to which he/she excels at without any problems with no prior knowledge (for about 30 seconds or less) and then diagnosing the child with ADHD and prescribing Concerta. Said child needs/wants more to compensate for failure to perform in...

    Looking for a path out of a broken mind.

    Greetings, I decided this Forum would be an opportunity to get some unbiased opinions, whilst avoiding any potential ramifications, through the anonymity it provides. I will give a description, as accurate and honest as possible, of my current mental state, in hopes someone has ideas for...

    Husband feeling helpless

    Hi all, Where does one start?? This is most difficult thing for me to do as I am not a person who reaches out to people in general, never mind strangers. But it has come to a point where I really don't know what else to do. :cry::low: My wife has recently lost her youngest brother due to an...

    What we can learn from the Natural World

    I find it interesting that after years of living I still have things to learn from the natural world. There is a certain quiet contemplation to the observation of nature and the world around us, that most things there happen in response to physical processes or the instincts of animals. One...

    Howdy

    It feels odd to me to introduce myself without including my real name. I'm rileypup and I've just been generally unhappy for a hot minute now. I live in the United States, I'm 22, I'm recently married to a good guy, and I work and go to college. I've been diagnosed loosely with depression...

    Not sure what is wrong with my mind

    First of all my apologies if I seem to not write more cohesively. I am a bit shaky at the moment. I feel this may sound a bit silly. I was studying philosophy and a week ago I just snapped. I found myself shaking, sweating, edgy and I felt I am going to collapse or go crazy. I was always anxious...

    How do I deal with depression?

    I’ve been battling with depression for two weeks now. My dad who have been my greatest hero passed the veil and left the mortal life. I feel like a part of me is empty. I don’t have someone to talk to now, I don’t have someone who will comfort me when I’m in big trouble. I feel lost to this very...
