    What do I do

    2
    I knew when I woke up that I was gonna have a bad day in terms of depression and anxiety. I don't know what to do, I want to hurt myself and see myself bleed. All I'm thinking about is all the dumb decisions I made. My ex keeps popping into my head and destroying my sanity. I had to quit my job, I haven't applied for school, my ex won't talk to me... make it stop

    Losing my progress

    I was doing so well. So. Well. But I feel like I'm falling and losing all the progress I've made. And it sucks. I had to go home for medical reasons which is 2,000 miles away from where I live. I'm supposed to be able to go back next week and hopefully that helps. All my friends are there and I miss all of them. They are my support system. I need them. Anyway just needed to vent about it. I just...

    i recently opened up to my fiancé of 6 years about wanting a second child with him....terribly.  Not only is my age working against me (38), but I have had a few abnormal test results, and was told my my doctor I'm good to go right now, but to do it soon.  I have opted to take preventative measures and have surgery in the future to be on the safe side....but I wanted to try again...one last...

    God Is Love

    No matter what happens today or doesn't happen, turn your attention to God.  He is always there.  He is the ultimate healer.  He can do anything.  He turned water into wine.  He made a blind man see.  He loved us so much, that he gave his son to die on the cross for us. No one in this world may not love us, but God does.  Do not listen to bad thoughts.  Bad thoughts are not good.  Only...

    Constant Up and Down

    Everyday is so different and confusing. One day I cut because the thoughts are so bad and the next day I'm completely fine. A couple days ago I wanted to commit suicide and Sunday I was ok. Today I'm feeling low again :(Does anyone else go through this constant up and down? It's sometimes so overwhelming and I don't know how to handle it. Next time I see the doc I want to switch my medication.
