    I'm 13. And I know everyone is probably like "ha you think you have it hard you're just a kid going through a phase". But I'm not. I struggle with depression and my biggest enemy is self-harm and cutting. Besides the point, I tried telling my friend who had experienced almost the same thing, in her way of course. And well I kinda made her even sicker. And I feel so bad. So I kinda just stopped...

    Well my cell service expires tomorrow. Which means I'll have no contact at all. Completely broke and stranded out of state. Busked 9 hours straight yesterday and only made $10. Disability and circumstance prevents me from employment. Choices left are sleeping on the street, jail, mental institution... I'm actually weighing the option of ending it all. It's enough to suffer but alone is...

    35 years

    Nobody responded to my last post and that kinda hurts because I'm looking for help. For most of my life I've dealt with severe depression and self hate. I'm 35 years old now, for the most part I read self help books to try to help myself but don't know how to apply what I read. I was just reading last night that a person can start to believe tings if they tell themselves it enough and I'm afraid...

    Alone and lonely

    I left my hometown over two years ago and moved to NM for a job.  I knew nobody here and now my family is 1600 miles away.  Since I work, I can't just go home anytime I want to.  In this process, I have become extremely lonely, even when I do things with new friends, I come home feeling depressed.  I have never lived alone before and this experience has been excruciating.

    To make a long story short I had a few gatherings on my moms side. Due to family in fighting I haven't talked to this side since my grandma died. The girl graduating was my moms great niece so I do not know her too well. My moms nephew had two kids and went through a bitter divorce. The ex wife had one step daughter. My cousin is now remarried and there a slew of other adult kids with the new...

    My Zoloft was increased to 100 mg three days ago.  Does anyone know how long it will take before the anxiety and depression are less and I can function without worrying how horrible I feel with no pleasure and having anxiety?

    Good morning. So I've been feeling very lonely lately and it has gotten to a point where I feel like everyone's just leaving slowly out of my life. Maybe I've pushed them there I don't know. But the main problem is my relationship and friendships. I don't have much friends just one I talk to on a regular basis. I can't just be friends with anyone it's hard. I don't know if they'll leave, talk...

    I'm not sure if this will be the correct way to post on here but I guess I really need someone to hear me out.I've struggled with depression for what I'm assuming is most of my life and it comes with paranoia, anxiety and bursts of anger. I was raised in an abusive household and dated an abuser for the majority of my teen years. My mother finally left my abusive father when I became an adult...

My mom claims to be allergic to feathers. Because she had a allergic reaction to dads goose down feathered pillow. They use all kinds of chemicals to clean those feathers. She was  more then likely allergic to...
