    Angry at myself

    3
    I'm still turning to my disturbed parents for approval and I don't know why. If I have an idea, I run it by them. Thing is, when they are OK, they give great feedback. When they are losing it, they tear me apart. I only ask for feedback when they are OK. But I'm angry with myself for asking at all. Today my mom said that I know exactly what I'm doing and don't need help. I agree. But I ask for...

    What the heck is wrong with me?

    0
    Hi I hope I'm not becoming a pain. But anyway I'm hoping you can tell me if I'm just being a brat or if there could be something wrong with me.  I hate hearing people sing. I just want them to stop. It slices right through me like a knife. I can't stand it when people sing to their dogs ( I do the same thing too). I'm a hypocrite for that and I really dislike myself for that. Please tell me...

    I know it's been awhile since I've been on here... I thought I could do this but I can't seem to shake this feeling. I've gone threw breakups and over came it. I've been dealing with my depression for years now and I've always been able too keep my demons on a leash. But this last one. I can't do it, I can't shake it I can't seem to get up and my demons are running loose. I'm losing and I know...

    My previous post was hard, and the answers are so very appreciated and I'm going to do them all. My job offers counciling and I got myself a journal I've been pouring myself into it. I'll burn it after I've beaten this. You know guys I've always wanted my own cafe and I'm gonna make that my goal. Something to shoot for while I get help.

    Empty alone and tired of this

    I feel empty inside. I can't even cry anymore, because it doesn't mean anything. No one ever notices or cares, so what's the point? I'm an empty shell of a person. Doormat, the go to if you're having a bad day. I'm so sick of it. I want to die, but I don't even have the will to do that anymore.This is how I feel pretty much every day at the moment. Today just happened to be worse than the rest. I...

    I"ve been through Hell in the last 8 years. I see no hapiness, only pain for me until I die. My friends are all sick of me. They don't understand. If I could put them in my position for a week, they might get it, 2 years, they would kill theirselves. I'm ready for the 50 cent cure myself. I have been through 8 years of living hell! I'm fucking done! I'm losing my family one by one. Just tired of...
