    Sad

    2
    I’m just sad. I’ve been emotional today, tired, sad, stressed. Lonely, even though I was surrounded by people. Sad because of the time of year, sad because of my mental illnesses, sad because of my body image. Sad because I’m tired, so tired of being insufficient. And almost everyone in my life is just so far away- not physically, but emotionally.

    Shame

    The quiet shame of depression is overwhelming.  I feel others can see through me.  See that I'm a shell with a withering, weak and sad soul. I pray that we all find a strong, trustworthy confidant to help us through our trials.

    Minimizing little by little

    I've become a little bit of a hoarder over the years. I've always taken great care of my "stuff," as in everything I have. Toys, clothes, electronics, household items, etc. The problem is, I have way too much stuff. When I moved back from college, I took even more items with me. All these additional things I acquired. I spent a lot of time today cleaning up. I spent an hour in the morning, and an...

    Just here anymore

    I don't know what I'm suppose to do I feel more down then ok or numb. Numb is better than this feeling I just want to feel better. I'm so tired of hurting and being hurt by the ones who are suppose to love and care about me.

    Today I should be thankful.

    0
    I’m new here. Not really sure how all of this works. Today has been a pretty rough day. The holidays are always rough for me, a high stress time. I’ve recently been trying to tackle my depression and anxiety head on and try to finally get better from something I’ve been struggling with since middle school (I’m 19 now). My boyfriend and I are taking a break to recover, so that’s hard,...

My mom said she isnt gonna argue with me if I want to be lazy and not go thats on me, but I'm not being lazy for...

    Is scoliosis my fault? Did I worsen it to 25°?

    1
    Hi, Im 20 years old and from 16 to 20 years I only weighed 55 kg due to mental disorder in school. But at 20 my weight is good. (Im male)  At 19 years they discovered a 25° S curve scoliosis. Is this my fault? Maybe if I had eaten more back then, then I would have no scoliosis at all or only 10°? Or maybe I sat uneven for too long at the pc desk with my legs on the table while leaning right?...

    My mind is my enemy

    I feel like my mind is screaming. I know I'm getting ahead of myself but I can't stop. Like I think to myself "I just need to get thru Thanksgiving" but then I think "but what then? I can't make it thru work next week!" I need to make the screaming stop...
