    SKYPE voice chat?

    I just thought of this and how it might be helpful for people here to also have a skype or google voice chat or whatever else is out there. I just had this picture in my head of a group voice chat in which we all come and help each other through hard times. I don't know about anyone else, but there's just something comforting about a voice. Any thoughts?

    Maybe I should just accept defeat

    I have registered to further my studies this year. I had always wanted to do it for years but something always had to happen to prevent it from happening. Right now I feel overwhelmed with the resposibilities of having to do well in school and as well as fullfing the requests of my demanding employer. Studying at this stage feels like a mistake, or is it? I'm not sure.I keep telling myself I'm...

    So I tried going to counseling. At first, it really seemed to be helping. By the end though, she seemed to be rushing me, not caring or hearing me, and just really annoyed. I don't know if it was something I said or what. But it made things so much worse. Every time I start to feel like I might be able to trust a person, they always show me I can't. I have yet to find a person who can prove to me...

I was in there for a week and I thought I was getting better, but when I came out of there I wasn't ready for the real world. My ex is confusing the shit out of me and everyone thinks i'm fine. They want me to be better, but I just can't. My ex is dating someone but she doesnt know if she wants to be with him. She said she...

    I feel defeated.

    I just joined the site today. I am in search of support from others who may be going through what I am. I suffer from depression and its been extremely hard for me. I don't like the idea of modern medication so I stopped going to see the psychatrist. I felt like I was just wasting her time by her prescribing me meds that I wasnt going to take. I also feel like I should stop counseling or try my...
