It has been a life time of not knowing who I am or where I am going. My 33 year existence on this earth has not been a happy experience. This is due to a number of events in my life which has contributed to my unhappiness. This is so hard! It is hard to explain my emotions. Over the years, anytime I have hit rock bottom with my anxiety and depression, I have looked in the mirror and said you will be fine, pick yourself up and get back up on your feet. This time though, this time feels different. The recent feeling, thoughts and questioning of my life has made me submit, my life is at rock bottom.

At this present moment, I am still quite tense and anxious with sharing my feelings.

When i am at home, before I go the bed, I like to grab a pen and write down my thoughts of the day. I hope with sharing my thoughts on the mental health forum this will help. I really hope I can open up more, share my feelings in time and draw inspiration from every brave individual who has chosen to be on the website.

Welcome my dear. I hope that you find that many of use share similar stories and with that we support and help uplift one another whether we feel it’s the worst day of our life, the best day of our life or we’re experiencing uncertainty about life. I agree with Blacksmoke, journaling in conjunction with the forum helps.

Hi there LTV and welcome. We have a journal section in the forum and a lot of us write our thoughts there. Sometimes serious and other times just ramblings as to what we’ve been up to. In fact anything you want (within reason lol)
