    Lost Without My Mommy

    So much has been going on for the past year or so in my life. Wednesday (10/25) will make 6 years since I lost the most important person in my life. My mommy was my everything! I recently started a new job and I couldn't call her to share my great news with her *sighs* I think about her all day everyday...I feel so empty inside! I miss hearing her voice, her hugs, her love, I just miss everything...

The top 2 pics below are of my little brother and the bottom 2 are of me.I've neglected exercise my whole life and never really thought about it until my brother choked me out in a play fight by wrapping his...

    moving on ...?

    I have found ways to cope with my depression. I have started improving my self esteem. I love this feeling. I went to a few concerts over the weekend and found myself more confident - enough to get a picture with someone I was looking forward to seeing perform, and also possibly meeting, who one of the guitarists of a popular band. I like this guitarist and honestly find him really attractive. I...

    My husband's depression is tearing us apart

    I have been married to my husband for only 1 1/2 years. One night I got a text from him while I was at work saying he can't do this anymore and needs to leave. It's been 3 weeks and things have only gotten worse. He's gotten rid of all our wedding photos, is living with his parents, and plans on leaving his job. I'm at the point where I'm so alone, scared, and confused. I'm worried he will never...

    Very down tonight

    The only thing I really contribute to my family is a roof over their heads and food. I’m not an enjoyable person to be with. I’m not charismatic or funny or intellectually stimulating, nor am I interesting to talk to. There’s not much that people can benefit from by knowing me. If I vanished from this Earth tonight, everyone would go on and in time forget about me.

    Will things get better?

    Today is better than yesterday. I haven't had endless bouts of crying and mental anguish. However I still have questions. Like, when will I get to where I need to be? Why are my circumstances the way they are? What did I do wrong? I still feel extremely alone, and separated from God. I am trying to pray, read the bible, and listening to Christian music. All of these things use to make me happy,...

    I don't want to keep going like this. I'll never be happy, skinny, or perfect like I want to. I've been unhappy for so long and I'm so tired of it. Im tired if feeling depressed and it never going away no matter what. I don't want to go back to the hospital but I don't want to stay here.

    A little help?

    Hi there, uhm.. I feel really lonely, I'm not a good friend or person to be around, my friends only put up with me because we've been friends for long, but I'm not the same and they don't feel comfortable with me, so I'd rather not approach others anymore. I'd like maybe someone to talk to or some suggestions on how to occupy myself? I'm taking a time off from college so I really need something...
