    Help

    I've been suffering from depression for years. I stopped smoking cigarettes (seven months ago) and the anxiety has taken over. I hate the way I feel. Everything wrong I did in my life is bothering me daily. I was unemployed for 10 months, and I convinced myself if I get...

    The pain is like a knife,

    piercing all the way through, burning and melting like magma away inside of me, I just want it to go away! It's spreads like poison... Sometimes, I'm lying there, anxious, agitated, trying to find a way to snap out of it, my mind is racing, everything I think about is making me...

    Bailing on friends because I just don't feel

    like socializing. I'm getting bored and sick of some friends. I don't want to meet new people. I don't want to fake smile and fake chit chat. I don't want to dress up. I don't want to do any of it. I could care less. I want to be home doing nothing. Id rather no one text me...

    Anyone with depression

    or anxiety knows the closed loop of hopelessness well. We look at our lives and see risks that don't look worth taking. We look at our relationships and are paralyzed by the silences or differences. We look at our world and humanity and start to cry. Which leads us to...

    "Suffering"? No, not really.

    Clinically depressed, but never feel it. It doesn't make sense. These stupid humans do know what the **** they are talking about.

    Struggling With Anxiety&depression

    I've had anxiety since I was 5. I remember constantly checking the doors to make sure they were locked. I didn't know that was a sign of having anxiety until a couple years later. When I was little I didn't go out and play that much because I was too scared to leave the house. If...

    I've had depression all my life.

    Pretty much since the very young age of 9-10 yearsold. It's had its ups and downs. What I mean is, I was able to get it to a manageable level but always end up relapsing. Like now, I know something is wrong but even though I'm getting help, being put on meds, talking, nothing is...

    I have, and I know that it is one of the

    weirdest feelings ever. I had (have) clinical as well as situation induced depression, the former of which scares me the most. It's so odd, when you have this feeling of doom that casts itself all over you like a blanket of despair. It's hard to fight, but it's somehow also easy...

    In the daylight hours it's anxiety.

    At night it's depression. Rinse and repeat. I'm so tired of feeling this way. You can't tell depression to **** off. Being "smart" is just overthinking things at this point. I can't defeat these demons because they're a part of me now. I'm just broken glass. I've been thrown to...

    that's what I've learned recently, bottling everything up doesn't solve all the problems, sure it makes it go away, but eventually you will explode, and go off the deep end, currently holding onto the ledge trying to get back onto land. Im not alone, yet I feel abandoned and...

    Peace, Where Did I Leave You? By Joyce Meyer

    I lived a lot of years searching for peace. I was frustrated, confused, aggravated, upset and in turmoil. Now I enjoy peace. But I might never have found it if I'd stopped looking for it, because God wanted to teach me to pursue it. Sometimes we wish for things to change...
