    Just very sad

    My marriage is ending, I have no friends that truly care about me and most days I can barely even get out of bed. I over eat over drink. I just really need some one to talk to. I have no family close to me. I'm tired of everything
  • Figured I'd offer those awake at the moment a chat! How are you doing tonight?

    I know it's a year away but I'm really sad. Next summer, my boyfriend plans to move back to Alberta. He misses it. He wants me to come with him but I can't. Not if I want to live. My support system is here. My family, my friends, my psychiatrist, and even my job. I really love my job.I'm sad because I know our relationship has a time limit. I wish he would stay forever but I don't want him to be...

    feeling alone

    9
    Sometimes I face a weekend alone. It happens. Other weekends I don't. It is scary and daunting to face a weekend alone. I have to admit at times that I've made a deliberate choice to be alone given the options. Here is what I mean: every year I would go to the holidays and my alcoholic father and violent brother would destroy it. I would go out of obligation and not to be alone. I wasn't...
  • Guys, I am in a very sad state right now. Recently, I moved out of my stepmoms house to be with my girlfriend, but the way it all happened is really affecting me. My stepmoms a conservative Christian, and practically disowned me after finding out I was lesbian. She came across texts between me nad my girlfriend one day, and our relationship has since been terrible. Everyday with her was a day of...
  • I'm not a perfect listener but I try to be a very conscious, active listener. I often end up feeling drained after speaking to people that I have extensive or in-depth conversations with because I truly am 100% present in the conversation. But lately I've noticed this resentment bubbling up that I can't keep shoved down. More and more I do not want to talk with the people I interact with the most...

  • I don't know where to turn or start so I guess I'm beginning here. I am going to make an appt with a psychiatrist on Monday but the pain and humiliation is eating away at me now and I need to get some things off of my chest before I explode. I moved to a small town in Virginia last summer to give my 11 year old a chance at normalcy. I met a guy and we would see each other around for a few months...
