Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 75 People

    I Hate Boredom

    Every evening, it comes without warning...that feeling of emptiness, of total lack of interest in anything, that routine that makes your days and nights look alike. After a long day at work (doing the same thing everyday) comes boredom at home. I have nowhere to go, no friends to...

    Why Isn't This Working!?

    This is awful. My usual sources of entertainment just aren't working anymore. It's all so empty. There's nothing interesting on Youtube (crazy to believe, but it's true), none of the shows I follow are airing at the moment, I don't feel like reading anything, I can't play games...

    The battle still rages, both depression and anxiety allied themselves to fight what still remains of who I am. I am in no position to give up however I am weak, I am broken.
