    I am so depressed sometimes I just don't know

    it, because I barely experience relief. My head feels cloudy all day long, I can't tell if it's a headache, because again, I rarely experience not having this state of mind. I am seemingly apathetic, numb, complacent, nihilistic and struggle finding inspiration and motivation...

    I may seem fine on the outside.

    I may talk to friends speak up in class and even laugh a lot. But on the inside I'm just praying you don't think I'm awkward or not funny or dumb or cruel or sad or depressed or suicidal. Because the harsh reality is, when I'm alone in a dark room thinking about everything, this...

    Mental Health

    I have suffered from depression for around about a decade due to life circumstances and past situations, when I was growing up I was beaten up often, pretty brutally, by my father and didn't have much support from anyone apart from these ridiculous counsellors who all just wanted...

    My girlfriend of two years is in therapy

    getting help. I, however, am afraid to ask for help, even after my girlfriend has asked me various times to get it. I can tell that I'm dragging her down with me when I should be lifting her up. a few nights ago I thought of how close my birthday is *tomorrow* and had to get out...

    It eats you and corrupts you.

    It takes over your life and makes you feel worthless, I suffer from it and it is hard but I hope soon to learn to live with my black dog.

    I barely want to go out of the house.

    I have really bad anxiety, it just saddens me even more. It is extremely difficult to overcome, I am not even sure if I can overcome it. I do not know what to do anymore. I feel very uncomfortable all the time. I feel like I am very odd and do not belong anywhere.

    I have been diagnosed with clinical depression

    from the age of 15. I guess what got me started was the constant bullying I endured through my school years. At the age of 14, I got my first boyfriend and when he left me, I was absolutely broken. I couldn't eat, I couldn't drink... I just didn't have the energy to get out of...

    I'm up to week 6 of a 12 week social anxiety

    course. Each session is 2 hours. I am noticing some improvements already. But I wouldn't recommend doing this kind of therapy until you know you are 100% ready to face your fears. You start off with the easier stuff and then work your way up to the top. One of the ones at the...

    I fear that one day when the teacher calls on

    me to talk out loud to the class, it's not easy for me to talk out loud or do a presentation without shaking and nausea.

    I suffer from social anxiety

    and depression. Every day I deal with thoughts of worthlessness. Why am I this way? Why do I have to be such a burden on my loved ones. I am a smart girl and I am completely aware of how irrational I am being. My biggest issue is that my anxiety is now affecting my ability to...

    I would just like to say

    that I have suffered from depression since I was a small girl. Not until recent therapy sessions have I realized that all my life I have been told I am worthless. To say it's been lonely is an understatement. I'm not better at all but I am more of what I believe to be myself. I...
