    I feel sad right now

    because there are many young people sad and confused and their parents do not support them. How important is to feel love and devotion from your parents... To feel confident to tell them what you feel ... I am going out for running...

    CHRISTIANS: I have struggled lifelong with

    depression, Even today as I try back in touch with God just recently. I'm happy to find God and I would give up a lot for him. However, I am still depressed and I count that as a blessing since in my darkest moments when I'm in my room crying, I find unexplainable comfort in it...

    Don't you just hate it

    when people tell you to simply "Get over it?" Well obviously those people have no clue what it is like to have a clinical mental condition DIAGNOSED mind you, by a professional physician. I wish that hopefully people become more aware of mental illnesses like these. Granted not...

    It's ok to not be ok,

    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...

    The anxiety started when I was like 11

    and from there it progressed to depression. I didn't know how to cope with it so when it kept getting worse I then got OCD. The OCD is probably one of the hardest things I have to deal with. For example, with the OCD I have to take three steps before I can cross a line, or have...

    There's not something wrong with me,

    just something a little different. If you look on the bright side, I can see things in a different perspective. Life would be boring if I couldn't and I wouldn't be who I am now. I came to accept the fact that not everyone will understand what's different about me and not...

    I am so depressed. I don't know how to be happy.

    Things that should make me happy dont. Sometimes I find brief happiness but it never last long enough. The negative thoughts start to quickly attack my happiness. For example I have a new boyfriend but I'm not sure if I'm happy. He treats me well. i know he wants to make me...

    much more. There's more regularity to it, and it seems, to me, to be a lot more 'rational' than my anxiety, if that makes sense?
