    I've always had a level of deprsssion since I was young but lately with our two dogs having to be put down before Christmas and some medical issues I'm just feeling lonely and the things I used to enjoy mean little to me. But it makes me feel very uncomfortable. When I was young being depressed wasn't allowed because it was in competition with my mother's depression and all these years later it...

I came out as Transgender last year and that helped a little at first but I actually started the whole process and now i can possibly have top surgery this year. I should be happy, I...

    i cut today. i had to in the moment. cutting felt like something i was obligated to do. i was sad/mad at myself and others and it was my only release. now, however, i feel ashamed and like i'm stupid for doing so... anyone ever cut and then feel bad about so they cut again?

    mom tripped me tonight with her walker.  i fell all the way to the ground and reinjured my bad knee.  one of my cats is sick.  taking care of my mother is like taking care of a 2 year old.  i am filled with rage almost every single minute of every day.  she won't leave me the fuck alone.  and now she trips me.  it was actually one of her fucking tote bags hanging off her walker that had...

    Dazed and confused

    I don't really know which direction my life is going anymore. Have been having suicidal thoughts and dreams on a regular basis for over a month now. It's very hard to find motivation to do anything, feels like everything is too hard. Anyone else relate to this?

Case in point, it gave me a platform to speak my own story and have my voice be...
