    Sometimes I can't exactly distinguish between

    reality and the things in my head. I don't hear voices all the time but I constantly see shadows. My therapist past it off as an overactive imagination, she's probably right. I'm constantly confused asking myself "Did you actually say that?" "Did she/ he say that?" "Can...

    I wish I missed people.

    I feel like by never missing anyone I demean the relationships I have. I just can't help it. Sometimes I wish someone in particular was with me But those feelings are always short And fleeting. By never needing anyone When I know how much the other person misses me I feel like I...

    Naw, really? It's one of those things

    that is just normal to me but looks weird to everyone else. I take meds four times a day, and if I happen to be in the presence of relatively sane people I think nothing of whipping out my med box and taking my dose. Then I get 'the look,' like, "Oh how sad, she's on drugs" or...

    Which is what ultimately convinced Me to seek out therapy. After almost forty years of life, most of it filled with trauma of one kind or another, I finally started it in April of this year, 2011. Though I was extremely hesitant to begin, I'm taking that process (as with life...

    I get in very self destructive moods sometimes.

    I want to binge eat, or buy a pack of cigarettes, or be mean to people that care about me. But somehow it's so great. I feel powerful. I want to **** **** up, inflict pain on myself and other people, and it makes me feel so good.

    My panic attacks are getting more frequent now,

    among other things. It's getting to the point that it seriously interferes with my daily activities since I can't get anything done if I feel like I'm going to die. I just want them to go away.

    This is kind of perverse to admit,

    but I am actually really excited to set up "a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation." I just looked up one office from my preferred providers list, and I may just try this one out. I want to know what is wrong with me. I have a lot of ideas about what disorders I have, but for...

    I Don't Know What To Do

    I am increasingly concerned that I may have suffered a breakdown of some sort. Maybe a few. I have done little to address my issues as I am crippled by fear. This is my first foray into admitting I am in trouble. So it is a positive step. It is a splendid day outside but I...

    I am not scared of my problems.

    I read so many quotes by people saying "I hate depression, I hate anxiety, I wish it was all over" but I am the opposite. I enjoy my problems. I cannot talk to anyone IRL outside of a small group of friends unless I'm talking about how terrible I am. I don't hurt myself to try...

    Because the world doesn't look right to me.

    There are hungry people who need to be fed, homeless folks who need a place to stay. I can't understand how property can be private. I thought the earth belonged to all those who walked it. Money doesn't really exist, and neither does time. I think we've been brainwashed into...

    I feel like it's crumbling.

    I've been diagnosed with a few things, but refused medication. They gave it to me anyways, so I sold it. My mom was adopted, so figuring out any possible mental issues on that side was hard. Schizophrenia slowly going through the women, even her biological mom. My father passed...

    I'm in online school

    so I don't get out much. And my mental state has definitely declined because of it. And it's really bad because I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to leave a depressed introvert alone in a house all day, every day.
