    Hey everyone

    Life is the same as ever.. hard.. I'm taking it moment to moment that all I can do and sometime that too long. I'm still seeing my therapist on a weekly basis. If I don't I know I'll end right back in the hospital this I feel that may end up happening again soon if things keep going the way they are. All these stresses are too much for me to handle... I'm starting to want to give up again. So...

    I'm ugly and pathetic

    I don't know where to start. I've been plagued with sadness the past three years of my life. I hate saying it because I see so many people who have it much worse than I do. I read what they say, what you all say, and know my issues pale in comparison. I feel so pathetic and like I have no right to complain. I've never had high self esteem, but what I did have dropped off next to nothing in these...

    Has anyone, as an adult ever experienced their mom/dad or both mentally and emotionally abusing you and all you crave is their love and acceptance? Do you feel like you just cant do anything right in their eyes but yet you try so hard to do everything right? Many say to tell her off and set her straight... I'm 31. Own my own home. Have my own car. Raise my children. Have a steady job. Never been...

    Not sure where to start. I been dealing with depression on and off since I was in high school. My mom passed away from lung cancer a year and a half ago. I tried to be strong for everyone and put my emotions aside. My dad was in bad health for awhile and in June he had the pneumonia twice then this month he was worse than he ever was. His lungs had fluid in them, his already bad kidneys got...

    Hi I'm new here. I don't really know where to start really. I've been existing and surviving for many years. I'm not sure how I've managed all these years. Things are harder now I'm getting a little older. I'm not excited for the future. I'm scared I am getting more and more comfortable with the idea of checking out. I don't even know why I'm here in this website. I don't even wanna talk about it...

    Is there truly a dark side of the force/moon?

    The answer is YES. Both are cold and inhospitable, like depression. I want to reach out to fellow depressives and say HAVE HOPE! In fact, I am trying to prepare myself for when my depression may intensify as I get older. Life will continue to throw all of us curveballs, so I for one want to swing a better bat!When I look back to my 20s and 30s and see myself wallowing in my depression- beleagured...
