    Bad jokes??

    5
    I was just at Daily Strength Members Community feeling a bit hypo. There are some serious problems people are discussing with the website, but I started making jokes about it.  Well, I won't go into what, I'm just hope they don't decide to give me a warning. Maybe Jan can explain what a small outburst of hypomania can do to people?  The sad thing is, I still think it was clever, and I am more...

    what's the point

    I plan on killing myself eventually. Next week, next month, next year. It's gonna happen. So why am I trying so hard to find a good therapist? Maybe I do somewhere inside of me have a small hope of feeling better. Therapy helps me cope on a day to day basis but I've only felt worse since seeing this newer therapist. Please God please let my old therapist take me back please please please

    I've  been studying in a salon for grooming dogs and the dogs that are normally very friendly and calm were very on edge and wild when I came around. This isn't a new thing to me. I was raised with animals my whole life. Normally they fine around me when I'm stable but when I start getting unstable they get uncomfortable. I'm not sure why but this was my wake up call. I know what I need to do I...

    Angry and depressed.

    1
    I am a horrifying mix of depression and SEVERE irritability. I feel like crying uncontrollably and pounding my fist through the wall at the same time. I am very angry at the way I am treated by family and coworkers to name a few. I know that I am judged by my size. I don't blame people. I am a fat, ugly pig.  I am angry at myself for becoming a huge, hideous fat hog. I am uncomfortable and in...
  • I just called my old tdocs office asking her to see me again. She ditched me after my fourth suixide attempt in may. I'm waiting on her receptionist to call me back and let me know what my old therapist says. Please pray she will see me again

    The Season demands a lot from us, getting together with family and friends can be stressful, so can the economics of gift buying. It can be a tough time for many of us. What do you do to find shelter at this time of year?

    Defiantly Down

    Ok I'm kinda new to this, but after feeling so down, confused, alone, tired, and over all rather dark 75% of the time. It was suggested I reach out for help and find support groups, I couldn't find any in my area but I found DS and honestly I hope this helps. 
  • hi I always suggest to new members that they might like to introduce themselves it's a good way of getting known and making friends.If you've returned under a new name it might be helpful to say who you used to be.Even if you have been here forever please just say hellooh and to make it all extra exciting, answer the question "what is your favourite cheese?" Mine would be apple smoked cheddar I...

    So grateful for my DS friends....

    I just wanted to share how grateful I am to have the friends I do here on DS. I don't post as often as i used to - partly is I'm afraid to create permanent things (it's a paranoia thing) but I read EVERYBODY else's posts and hold them dear to my heart. So, I apologize for not posting more. I guess this is a post - so here I begin. This is hard for me - does anyone else ever feel that way about...
