    It’s just too tiring though. Hard to see it as worth it I guess

    Was feeling pretty awful this morning. Fighting with my thoughts again. How much I fail at things, how dumb I am for not even trying, but when I do I feel I take myself to exhaustion. I realized I hadn't worked out in two days ( after days and days of consecutive workouts). I guess this had an effect on how I was hating on myself. Put on some "bulimic" by The Used and started doing cardio. Started feeling a bit better. It's still a battle though. I'm exhausted, but my body isn't anywhere near I'd like it to be...
    I don't know. Guess that's all. I'm just stressed and missing days when getting in exercise was easier because of sports and dance, etc.

    Hello, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm new around here but being that I have anxiety and bipolar, with some possible PTSD you might see me pop in and post here every once in a while. Nice to meet everyone!

    I opened up to a coworker I thought I could trust and told her about my mental illness. She asked me why I’m sad and so depressed about and to just be positive.

    Lol I know how fun the old "just be positive" advise can be.. I'm sorry I know it makes you wanna scream.. just remember there is more of us out there that can relate then you would think..

    Also understand this.. Maybe try doing something silly.. I know it sounds like kinda odd advise.. but try to surprise yourself with your own silliness it can distract you just long enough for your emotions and brain to do a soft reset so to speak lol

    I just ended playing Pokemon for a couple hours, which helped sort of distract me from thinking, lol. But thank you. :heart:

    I love the Switch, but did enjoy playing Pokemon on the older handhelds. I miss some of the older designs of the Pokemon. No idea where I put my 3DS tho, lol.

    A handful of people have reached out with incredible kindness and I’m really grateful for it. I’m so lucky to have a place that can help take an insurmountable burden and make it seem a little less daunting. Thank you all :heart:

    I have a difficult time understanding people. Sometimes I want to give up trying, but I don't know if that's liberating or hiding. that line is thinner than I'd thought. Will that make me less of an overthinker and more confident? Or would that be me giving up on people and give me more excuses to withdraw? Is anyone actually confident or are we all just trying to project that wishful thinking? Idk idk. Being a person is tough.

    Ugh. Been slacking on taking my antidepressants and think doing so has been fucking with my stomach, and that’s been causing me even more stress as it makes me feel bloated, nauseous and indigestion. Causes anxiety because I’m worried maybe something else is causing the issue.

    I think sometimes we confuse ourselves with trying to understand peoples behaviors and not the person themselves.. we kinda try to work backwards so to speak.. We try to understand peoples behavior and with that understand the person.. but it should be the reverse we should understand the person first which leads to a better understanding of their behavior.. I don't know that's my theory anyway lol
    On the confidence subject.. I think people are actually confident.. but it is a state of mind like happy or sad.. it can be strong or fade and there is ways to improve at it by doing things that boost that feeling of confidence.. the key factor is that it is completely up to you on how confident you are or are not, just like with happiness you make the choices that ultimately effect the level of confidence you will have and also project..
    I say be yourself, that's what confidence is really all about.. not apologizing for being you and not being perfect because who da fuq is yeah?

    SERENITY NOW! Prestigious

    I was diagnosed with Anxiety probably 7 years ago and it all came from having the stomach bug and getting on WebMD.
    Im pretty much a full blown Hypochondriac. For the most part the medicine I am on keeps me in line. Ill have my setbacks from time to time. Im currently going through the phase that I have ALS(which I go through this atleast every few months)

    I know that I have Anxiety and the symptoms are all in my head but I cant ever seem to shake off this feeling that I really have something major wrong with me.

    Sounds just like me, guess I should go get officially diagnosed — doesn’t help I actually have a chronic illness and what I believe to be severe side effects from my medicine, but still.

    I would recommend seeing a doctor,because at least they can give you medicine if youre not already on something.
