    What's the point anymore?

    I'm sick of trying and helping others and when I'm in crisis nobody seems to know or tell the difference. I run off and nobody tries to talk to me but I'm begging others to stop running and to come back when they're in need. Then I'll feel guilty and it repeats itself over and...

    I'm trying to be optimistic about my current

    situation. I will be sleeping at our local cold weather shelter for homeless people since I couldn't find a new place and my parents are sick of me being in the house. so my only option is to sleep at the shelter and be outside all day until it opens again for the night. I need...

    Last August my wife got abruptly sick.

    At first we were convinced she'd developed a heart condition, but since that point her physical symptoms became increasingly mental and the two doctors' opinions were that she'd hit a major depressive episode. For a few months I was convinced she was developing schizophrenia...

    I'm sore, stressed, exhausted/sleep-deprived,

    I don't drink enough water and I'm not eating as healthily as I should. I'm not doing great and I need to take better care of myself.

    I am kind of losing my ability to walk.

    Soon enough, I'm going to using a motorized scooter. The doctor doesn't think it's too serious, though. But we'll just have to wait and see.

    I need prayers and good luck,

    please guys. I am not having a very good life at the moment. I am currently in trouble with the police, and I don't even know which school I will go to. I am in PRU, lost all my friends for supporting a teacher, the worst is that I am never happy. Thank you.

    I wish I would've gone to the right park.

    .. I'm sorry I couldn't meet you at your house like I asked you too. Tbh I went back to my apt to get a phone with a number you would recognize; my mom called the cops on me for borrowing her car. Called it auto theft. Thankfully I won't be getting another charge.

    My moods are all over the place!

    I can go to bed feeling perfectly fine and happy, then wake up in the morning in a terrible mood. I feel like I'm constantly saying the wrong thing. I know some of the things I've said in the past week have hurt people I care about. I never intended to do that. I can't explain...

    What I believed to be a situational depression

    may well be the return of Major Depression. I think I may have to get back on antidepressants. At least I've heard the side effects are less severe than the last class of SSRIs. I'm scared to death every single day that I'll spiral as before and lose everything again.

    I'm sleeping way too much. I get up and stay up a little while, then want to go right back to bed. I'd say 6-7 am -3-4 pm and the evening too I'm asleep. It scares me. I don't have the motivation to read anymore or do much of anything. I used to be a fireball, now I'm just ashes...

    "let Go And Let God"....but I Really Don't Want To...

    As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend, I brought my broken dreams to God; because He was my friend. But then instead of leaving Him, in peace to work alone; I hung around and tried to help, with ways that were my own. At last I snatched them back and cried...

    where you want to do so many things but everything you do, you mess up? The frustration! It's turning into a mild aggression at this point.
