    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...

    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...

    i am so fed up of people telling me to cheer up!

    no one understands how i feel within myself and i constantly put myself down. i am trying my hardest to see things through and become happier but it's so difficult and i wish people would understand that right now, cheering up is proving difficult.

    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...

    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!!!

    A Life At One Point May Be Like One That You Don't Want To Have.
