    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...

    You know what? I'm finally proud of myself.

    Went back to work today which consists of some driving back and forth a 20 min distance. And I always have panic attacks while driving. And today I had one- but I stayed as composed as I could and got myself through it! Facing my fears and just letting go. I did it. Was it easy...

    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...

    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...

    Sometimes ill hear a song from last year.

    . Its weird it reminds me of when i was happy. Back before i was so horribly insecure. Before waking up was too hard because i am depressed. Before school seemed like hell. Before i took a blade to my own skin... I dont know how to get back to that.

    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...

    Hey there. I have been battling depression

    and anxiety since I was 9 years old. I am 26. Everyday is a battle but I am getting stronger! I was wondering if any of you guys out there experience problems with accepting criticism. I hate any level of scrutiny. It makes me feel raw and open. How do you deal with it?
