I’m Emma, I’m 25years old.. I have been struggling really badly with mental illnesses. I have tried going to therapy, yesterday was my second session. It still doesn’t make a difference. I just feel like there’s no point in being around anymore, I have family around me but I don’t have no one calling me or texting me or even coming to my home, I’m always on my own.. I am even struggling with working because I injured myself from working in a factory years ago and it’s gotten worse so now I’m not even working at the moment and I feel like that makes it worse, cause now I’ve fuck all money.. I have never been on the website if I’m honest I typed in I don’t want to be here anymore and it came up, and as I read what others had to say it made me feel like I’m not alone. Even though I am if that makes sense. I wish I could be at peace and not have any of these problems!!! I have struggled with depression and anxiety for so many years I feel like it’s a never ending thing!!! When I think of not being here (dead) I can actually feel my inner peace, and everything lifting, like I’m free from everything I’m going threw am feel from all the mental illnesses. I have tried antidepressants and they just made me feel 10 times worse.. I am supposed to be on anxiety tablets but they make me feel so numb, and feel nothing. I just want to feel normal and not have this shit holding me back in my life anymore. I’m exhausted, I just want to have a meaning in life, I would love to start a family, and have my dream job, being a photographer.. but it’s my mentality holding me back from doing it. It feels like I’m in a cage and I can’t get out of it. I have no friends I feel like I don’t even have my family considering they don’t bother with me anyway so it wouldn’t make a difference if I’m dead or alive.. I have tried to killed myself but it’s unfortunate that it didn’t let me go peacefully and let me go..

Hi Emma, welcome to the forum you need to give the therapy longer to start working for you as it can not be rushed and has to be taken slowly. I really am sorry you are suffering but give your self a break as you made a big choice in joining here as everyone is so caring and helpful.

PS I am a photographer.

Hello, thanks ☺. Yeah, I suppose it takes a lot long than 2 sessions until it helps. Thank you, I honestly don’t know why I joined, I tried talking to people online before about my mental illnesses and it didn’t seem to help, but I like that I don’t feel alone on here. You are? Thats really cool.. I love photography!!!

Even though I have depression and other issues I have done photography for many years and I am self taught.

Do you do photography professionally as a job? Because I have been looking to do it as a job and not sure if it’s even possible. Although I find photography and recording videos is very therapeutic.
