  1. the more you reach out and talk, the easier it gets
    the first few times you tell someone that you’re struggling is going to be very hard, but once you open that line of communication with a friend or family member, it gets easier and easier

    it's very hard for me to share my feelings, because I think people will get mad or not understand or I'll bum them out, but it doesn't get rid of the feelings or help you

  4. I wouldn’t attempt suicide ever again but life is just really hard right now and a family friend recently passed due to suicide. It’s been triggering and I feel a lot of guilt. I love you all so much and like I’ve said before, I’m so thankful for this thread

    Uggh. Have had a migraine, little desire to eat, felt super tired. And this was after a rly good week so it was like extra upsetting that depression seemed to be winning again. Then I realized it's the dang PMSing. My symptoms are getting worse and worse. Monday I need to make an appt with my doctor and maybe change my birth control or something, or see if I can get on a bc that just eliminates or reduces periods all together. It's so debilitating and I'm glad I figured out the timing and what it must be, because last week was srsly so good and I didn't know what was happening and felt like a failure or hopeless idk

    Me today as I'm trying to mask the misery

    So fatigued and migrainey the last two days. It's obnoxious. If men had to go thru this every month there'd be a better fix. I have to go to a BBQ later and it's gonna be all I do today. I actually rly wanted to go to the gym today but I feel like I'm gonna pass out or something. Ugh. Calling the Dr tomorrow!!

    between one of my friends' od'ing, one friend attempting suicide, and another one going to the emergency room for a panic attack, all in the matter of a few days, everything is falling apart around me. its like all the shit feelings has hit me and everyone else in my life at the same time and we're struggling to be there for each other. i had to push my graduation a couple months and take a break from bootcamp because the stress between that and my personal life is so overwhelming, i'm physically sick to my stomach every morning and night. i'm so fucking tired of this plane of existence pushing me and everyone i love around.

    I really want to disappear into the woods for a few days when I'm in NY, but I don't know if I'm going to be healed enough to be able to embrace the dirt. Also I'd need a car and I don't feel like answering questions as to why I want to be far away from the people who own said car lol

    Good lord I need a check in with my therapist

    I just don’t know what’s wrong with me anymore and I just wish I could disappear forever
    I’m so tired of letting everyone around me down and just working so hard with nothing to show for it and what feels like no future ahead of me

    I’m just exhausted with life

    I scheduled an appointment with my therapist tomorrow very last minute...got some news yesterday that is going to impact my life for the next couple of years and it already complicates the feelings I was dealing with. I'm gonna call out of work and just take a personal day, go to my therapist and try to talk some of this out because I can feel dark days coming. I've been here before.

    Been rationing my meds over the past couple weeks (some days I take half, others i skipped entirely) under the assumption I'd need to see my doctor again to get a refill. Thankfully pharmacy called me today with another month and they'll contact my doctor to hopefully schedule future refills. Just haven't been able make an appointment with a therapist and was embarrassed over the past couple months. Just don't really have the money or an easy way to get to one at the moment with my car being out of commission. Could probably Lyft, but want to boost my savings before scheduling sessions with anyone.

    Had my year review today at my job and while overall good, my trepidation leading into it and during it and the combination of not taking my meds properly has me a little out of it today.

    I was completely honest with my therapist today about how I've been feeling and you know what? I do feel the tiniest bit better and the tiniest bit like I can start to deal with the hardest thing I've avoided for so long.

    fuck tammy! Prestigious

    I got a bizarre string of emails today from an old friend. It started with her sharing a poem she wrote about her father (I'd told her to email it to me) then one or two "hey how you doing I've had a rough year since my dad died, miss you" then "you blew me off a few years ago when I was in SF I don't need you in my life" and I'm not in the headspace to deal with it yet. Part of me thinks she's back to drinking regularly, and part of me also knows she keeps a mental list of grudges/wrongs so it could just be that...all I can do right now is kinda smile sadly though.

    It's a very good idea to stay out of toxic threads here where people are just dunking on each other for simply having a different opinion, I made the mistake of posting in a particular one recently and of course a mod here tries to clown me. Being off this site in general for a long time feels really good, being online in general when you're having a rough time is just really tough.

    It’s like a nightmare on repeat that I didn’t see coming. But it’s reality. I don’t know what to do I am so broken. I didn’t eat last night, and I couldn’t even sleep even tho I took a sleep pill to help. My biggest fear is coming true. Didn’t think I’d ever see this day

    I wish I could practice what I preach.

    Like life is short. My life is like insignificant in the grand scheme. So I wish I could just loosen up and enjoy it, but anxiety is always holding me back. Like who cares what others think?? Just do u. But when it comes to practicing that I hit a wall. I'm insecure and a people pleaser and I think that hinders me a lot. People who are older than me always tell me that they were the same at my age and learned to be more confident as they got older, but I am impatient and want those skills now lol. I think one of my greatest fears is when I'm about to die I'll just think of all my regrets. All the times I didn't try or put myself out there, and all the opportunities I didn't take. I have plenty of time to mend that and do what I want, but I let low self esteem have control over me.

    I’ve been eating tic tacs obsessively lately and it’s helped with my anxiety. Is this a thing?
