    I need her

    0
    Hi all! I'm new to the group. I need to find other adults who also have separation anxiety. I had separation anxiety from my parents when I was young. Then when I was 9 they sent me to overnight camp and it was the first time I was away from home and not with relatives. On that trip I had a very traumatic experience...I actually saw someone try to commit suicide. So that just reinforced the fact...

    In the throes

    2
    I am experiencing flashes of times in life, like every conversation has a word or theme that sends me into my head and I'm not a great listener or present with my family and friends. It's not one thing it's everything, all of the stuff. I'm tearful and can cry on the drop of the dime. My obsessive stuff is intensified and my knee jerk reactions have started, grasping to feel better. I spent a lot...

    Triggered and Alone

    I was triggered this afternoon and had a panic attack that I'm having a hard time shaking. My father died in my arms 3 and a half years ago from cancer and an old friend that used to hang out with my dad and I texted me this afternoon to say that he misses me and my dad and wishes that they were watching the game together. I felt hapiness at first since I haven't heard from him in months but it...

    Walk a Day

    I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...

    I'm really sorry everyone

    During my stress yesterday I posted very sensitive stuff on here without warning others. I've deleted it in an attempt to make it right but I'm really sorry for anyone I upset and will be more thoughtful next time.

    So tired of it

    TW nearly 62 now. Done all the therapy and self help. Tried so hard to change everything wrong with me. Still have a miserable lonely life where I mother and soothe and support as many people as I can but have no one to help me. Taken for a fool consistently. Unconditional love and acceptance doesn't atttact the same. Just need to die now. Wish I knew how.

    Scared to keep going

    I’ve been suffering from severe anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. I’ve even had a couple of nervous breakdowns. This has all been in the last couple of months.  I’m trying EMDR therapy on Saturday but I’m so scared that it’s not going to help and I can’t keep living like this. Can anyone share their experiences with EMDR?

    Not doing good

    I haven't been doing well.  Last night I was up until 12 and woke up at 3 am.  Been really lonely and depressed.  Haven't been able to do anything creative for a long time.  There was a poetry meetup but it closed due to lack of attendence but I was too depressed to go most of the time.  Nothing's here for people my age except drinking.  Last week when my mom and I were on a drive we saw a...
