    I'm so stressed out in every aspect of life

    financially, health wise - I've lost so much weight none of my clothes fit me anymore, relationship wise, I have no "real" friends. I don't know how to have fun or enjoy myself. I'm lost and I feel like a zombie going by day to day doing nothing in life. I have nothing going on...

    They say we can be who ever we want,

    but once I act like myself I'm questioned by every guy that knows me, they assume they see the true me but in reality I'm just trying to make myself stronger everyday in their eyes, but more passionate in my eyes

    I can admit to PTSD, anxiety

    and depression & I am unmedicated. I prefer dealing with my emotions than be a zombie. I go from 0-60 often and can be emotionally unstable. I wish that I wasn't this way and had more control. Situations keep me from enjoying life. As in I hate stupid strangers in real life and...

    I feel like life is all work.

    I am missing out on something. Probably because I have minimal family and no friends. The only friends I have are guys who I think just like me so they have their own objectives. No one is interested in my life and how it is going. No one tries to hang out. I'm not positive...

    Sometimes

    Sometimes life becomes so unbearable that you can't barely keep going and want to give it all up.   Despair takes over and whisper in your ear that life is meaningless and it is not worth the effort but I must not pay attention to it because I know where that path leads.
