    What should I do ? Yesterday I was given an

    assignment in school. We had the option to do it solo or in groups. I wanted to do it solo but my friends made me join their group. So then we had a group of 4. We were each given tasks. Mine was to find information and compile it. Another of my friend would send me some...

    Looking For Hope

    Hi Everyone, I'm 21 years old and have suffered from depression and anxiety for several years. It's strange - some days I feel as though I have found the answer and the end to my inner conflict, but many days I just don't feel like it's worth it to try. Sure there are people...

    This Too Shall Pass...

    I used to believe that (or maybe I still do but am blocked my sadness) but I have not had much relief from life's ever-present problems. I know I am blessed as I am fully aware of the human suffering experienced by millions of people but that does not diminish my pain. I don't...

    My Struggle

    I don't know where to begin or how to say anything.. Well my name is Kayla, I just turned 17 in July, and I live in a small town in VA. When I was in 2nd grade my life wasn't perfect--far from it. I never got any attention from my family. I was always angry and upset. Things...

    I find myself joining a lot of groups in here because so many things are going wrong in my life. I have an anxiety disorder that has pretty much ruined my life in many ways-certainly has ruined any type of career I wanted. I also have become very heavy and now have physical...

    Definitely.

    I feel like this sometimes and I've caught myself saying that my life filled too much of challenges that it is almost impossible to complete them.  On a good note I'm willing to work through them because life is about over coming challenges so we may help others get...

    Life is hard enough as it,

    having alopecia makes it worse. Suffering from hair loss at the of 24 is devestating especially being a woman. It makes my life extra hard. Worrying about wigs and hairbands. I hate thinking about it. I wish i was normal and had hair like everyone else!!!

    Right Now - The Hurt Is Just Too Much

    Three months ago I almost killed myself.

    Life became too much for me to handle. I took 20 Doxepin (a sleep/anxiety pill) and pleaded that God finally take me home and apologized to God for doing what I did. I hoped he showed compassion as I slipped away and would save me. I don't remember too much after that. I...

    Sometimes..

    I think life would be so much simpler if I stopped caring. About people, about what happens, anything. I usually just end up retreating into my own world, away from people and their problems, when everything becomes too much for me to handle. And yet, at the same time, I long...
