    Venting Does freedom even exist?

    I feel so overwhelmed, and my job is making me sick at this point. I hate it. But I can't do anything else, I feel like I'm too weak to handle this 9/5 workday thing. I want to be free, to be free of these burdens, to be myself, to be happy. But reality won't have it. And I will suffer like...

    Never happy with life and always bored

    So to my recollection, I have always had this problem however this year it has only gotten worse. It probably came to light last summer when I was doing my internship. It was alright for the first 2 months as everything was new to me however the tasks started getting repetitive and less...

    Ideas & Opinions What are some non-medicine/therapy ways that help you anxiety?

    I'm open to any idea really, what works best for you? I tried meds many times before but the side effects freak me out, highly doubt I'd ever go back. As for therapy, most professionals disappointed me in some way. It doesn't need to be a "treat" same way doctors cure illnesses, just anything...

    Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired...

    It's all quite understandable. It's like being a young kid again and on Sunday you really don't want to go to school the next day. Maybe because there is a lesson you don't want to go too, or a fight you don't want to have with some twat that thinks they're rock hard, or simply because you've...

    Nothing seems to work for me and my collapsing mental health

    I am open to any advice or idea. So I have an anxiety, and a really REALLY bad hypochondria. Every once in a while I am convinced that I have cancer. Last year, I thought that I had breast cancer in September because my breasts were hurting a bit, so I took an appointment for an ultrasound and...

    please help as soon as possible.

    I'm 17 years old and I live with my grandparents. About two months ago, I made things official with the guy that I've had feelings for since the 3rd grade. About three weeks ago, I let him take my virginity. It was 100% consensual and he pulled out. I am on birth control, but sometimes I don't...

    Practical Advice Wanting to isolate myself from friends

    I will need to explain a few things first so that I can get the right advice for this context, sorry for the long read. Until a few weeks ago, I used to be fairly cold and stubborn when it came down to what was on my mind and refusing to talk about things with anybody until I basically had a...

    I could only date someone that has picture evidence they have dated someone with a smaller penis

    I do not trust anybody that says they've been with someone smaller 4-5 inches vs 6-7 and enjoyed it more. I hate dating, I hate pornography, I hate how men have it so much harder than women just because of stupid genetics. Why couldn't everyone just have a generic size, the world would be a much...

    TL;DR - Divorced and Alone

    I suffer from Bipolar II, PTSD and chronic anxiety. When I started dating my ex-wife in 2015 I told her all about it and explained it in as much detail as I could. I'm up front about it when meeting someone new for a relationship because I know firsthand that it is not easy living with someone...

    "Love yourself"

    "You look beautiful" means nothing unless you believe it So stop telling me that tight black dress looks good on me because honestly I feel disgusting in it And it's too tight around my belly to the point where it makes me want to puke everything I ever ate And stop telling me "love yourself"...

    Is pushing people away basically a fight or flight response?

    Like I noticed today I was in a great mood and decided I wanted to visit my bf at work. I’ve been in a funk the past few days and haven’t wanted to be around anyone, even him. But I figured since I was feeling a bit better I would visit. As soon as I was with him I felt all my walls go up. I...

    Found out something I thought was normal was a symptom

    So I've been chatting with my therapist and I mentioned that some of the things I do, things I either thought were normal or were just casual quirks, and he said these were actually symptoms of my anxiety. For example, I tend to be very compulsive in hand washing. I'll wash my hands dozens of...
