    Hi again. Alex here. I don't have a lot of people to talk to about this... um... im trans (can't stress it enough) and I am looking for some support. My parents don't care about me being trans and they don't support it. They don't support me being polyamoris and they don't support what I like. Please help!

    Not enough

    0
    I feel like I'm just not good enough. I'm not a good enough daughter, sister, or friend. Whatever I do is wrong. My parents favor my sister. Whatever she does is perfect. I do everything wrong or whatever I do is not good enough. I'm so tired of trying. I just want to go to sleep and never wake up.

    I am a woman who adopted her sister's children 9 years ago when she suddenly passed. Both of these children are now 19 and 16 and have many depression issues regardless of everything I have tried to give them. They did not struggle financially, were given lots of love and I even left my husband due to their unhappiness with them. They both are getting professional help, they both are on the...

    Feeling very weepy tonight, wanting to isolate myself. Want to just lock myself in the bathroom, sit in the tub and let the water run over me. I've thought about taking a bunch of benadryl but I don't want serious side effects just want to knock myself out. I hate feeling this way...

    No matter what I do I'm never good enough. I keep trying to be perfect for everyone but I am failing. My mom has been mad all week. I don't know how to help her. She's in pain and my brother won't help her at all. He's 25. I'm 16. Why am I held accountable for mom? Why can't I just do one thing right for her? Why can't he do something to make her life easier? A lot of people say I'm crazy for...

    Stop Talking

    I hurt my friend last night and I feel bad about it and I know I did it and I worried him too much and I'm pretty sure he's mad at me so I decided that I'm just going to stop talking to all my friends who know about how I feel. Mainly the people I usually talk to about my depression and how I feel, which are the friends closest to me. I just feel that if I don't talk to anyone anymore then I...

    cutting loose

    I am going to cut loose from my coach/therapist and her support group.  I've gotten to the point where...with people...who talk about love and support...but they dont' know the first thing about it...really is a turnoff.  It's not to say that I didn't learn anything from her or that she was a bad coach.  She was great and really talented.  But, she is extremely close with some really abusive...

    I'm tired by dealing with mental illness that I have, and makes my parents get angry and furious because of it. I just wish that they're supporting me:( I'm done with struggling.... I'm sorry that I'm spamming with this, but since the therapist's fee (that I think might be) expensive, I cannot afford it and blocking me to seeking help, especially when my parents says that I need to see therapist...
