    Just trying to get through the day.

    I have had bouts of depression my whole life, but this year has been tough. I was in a low place probably the last couple of months because of financial stress and my struggle with weight loss. It really brought me down. Then, about a month ago, my fiance and significant other of 7 years told me he no longer loved me and wanted to break up. I was devastated and fell deeper into my depression. I...

    hopeless romantic - never finding love

    Hey everyone - New to this group.  A little about me:  I'm retired military, very pretty, well establised in my career, grounded with a great personality/always smiling (always crying in private).  I'm reaching out b/c I just can't cope anymore.  I'm tired of being rejected in relationships for whatever reasons, which most of the time I'm left wondering "why".  I struggle with asking myself...

    I'm New Here

    I was referred by Crisis Text Line. I'm not sure if this site will be much help to me or if anyone cares at all what I have to say. I'm battling depression & anxiety alone. I know people tell me this all the time that I'm not alone. Yes I know I'm not alone in suffering mental illness but I'm alone in the fact I have no support system. No family no friends.I tried to join Depression and Anxiety...

    Just venting...

    I totally allowed my manipulative mother to get under my skin today and I feel so angry at myself. I've known her my entire life, I know it's better to let her spew nonsense and not respond, but today I just boiled over, told her exactly what I thought of her. And of course no matter what I say, her venom is ten times more powerful. She twists my words, throws things back in my face, makes me...

    Anxiety and depression overlapping, no one to talk

    4
    This is always fun when they overlap.I have no one to talk to, so I'm writing here, maybe someone can relate.Kinda going through losing someone that I thought was a friend and had my back, and I guess only to find out that is untrue.Maybe I caused this, maybe it was my mental illness that ruined things again, maybe I didn't, maybe they were never really with me to begin with.I was upset at first,...

    Excitement Turns to Anxiety

    6
    Ugh! I had 2 weeks of relative calm and good feelings and then wham...in comes the anxiety again.  I can feel it creeping up when I wake in the morning and while in the shower.  I can usually tell if my day is going to be a good one when I step out of the shower in the morning.  Right now it feels situational but I know that there is an underlying biological propensity that makes me more...

    Any advice?

    4
    I was doing better but now I feel I'm right back where I started. Alone. Upset. Unable to get help. Before I was at least seeing a counselor and had a good friend and had just started a relationship. Then I graduated, so no more free counseling, and I'm out of touch with my friend and my boyfriend lives 12 hours away from me. He's sweet and we care about each other, but he's really bad at dealing...

    Incompatible With Present Paradigm

    1
    Does anyone else here suffer from the realization of the fallacy of our present paradigm? I don't want to even bother with details unless there is someone else that understands what I'm talking about. I'm trying to give myself a reason to continue living that isn't based purely on emotional demands. I see no future for my species, so what's the point?

    Medication, sleep, suicide

    Ive had sleep problems for years. Im not sure but they may have gotten worse when i decided to cut way down on meds. I was being overmedicated for along time. Anyway, been with a new med prescriber for a few months, she originally put me on low dose of seroquel just to help me sleep, only temporararily.....which helped a little some nights but not others. She continued to put me on atavan to help...
