    I swear I used to be smarter.

    I was a very smart kid, I got good grades without studying, without trying, I picked up skills easily enough, at 17 I opened my text book for the first time the night before the exam, and I passed that exam easily enough, then I got to university, I studied Maths and Programming, and in my first...

    The Theory of Depressive Realism

    The theory of Depressive Realism states that people who are depressed have been shown to make more realistic inferences with available data, and it is the normal people who are actually putting a positive bias on their interpretations of data. Basically, this suggests that depression gives you a...

    What animal suicide says about us

    I’ve been trying very hard to understand why life is so unpalatable. The question of whether animals commit suicide is ageless, and the verdict seems to be still out. What is not easily debated is to the extent which displeasure plagues humanity, despite how much easier it is for us to fullfill...

    Always nagging

    I've been OK now for a while, functional, happy enough considering circumstances, but, as I've said before on here, occasionally it feels like the "OK" me is just an act, or a mask which slips occasionally and underneath it I'm still as broken and desperate and empty as I was at the worst of it...

    I'll never be good enough.

    No matter how many people compliment me or my work, or tell me I matter or have skill in something. I'll never believe it. I'll never be good enough for myself. I can't draw well or write well. The characters I make and the ideas I have are all awful, all I do is just copy ideas from other...

    Empathy Only I look up at the clear blue sky and I wonder if I can fly

    I haven’t sat down to look at the sky in a very long time. It reminded me tonight that I am alive. But I don’t remember what *alive* feels like. Do you? I look up and think about how I could climb up a tall roof and take one step... maybe I wouldn’t fall. Maybe I could join the birds. Who...

    Is sadness from depression real or just chemical?

    Is sadness caused by clinical depression real or a chemical illusion? Do we know if chemicals can right the ship or do we have to work through the sadness? Sometimes it feels like a house filled with smoke and mirrors.

    I'm scared that I don't care anymore to get better

    I am in a rut. I took a few months off to care for my father while he recovered from cancer. Now it's time for me to go back to work, but I don't want to. I've wanted to leave for a while now. I have the option to take an immersive 3-month course. I used to look forward to the idea of this...

    Psychologically feeling younger

    Is there anyone else on here who psychologically feels like a child or teenager in an adult body? I personally psychologically feel like i am still between 17 to 19 years of age even though i'm currently 26. How do you guys deal with an issue like this?

    I was having a good day

    I was feeling really good about myself after therapy yesterday. i felt really positive and happy for once. I contacted my friends again, I made plans to meet up, I didn't stay locked in my room today, I indulged in sweets. That kind of stuff. Once upon a time they were normal stuff. But here I...

    Is anyone else dealing with both mental health issues and also physical health problems plus grief? There are plenty of sites for one particular issue but difficult to find one where a person can be experiencing several at once. I tried posting on a site specifically for the physical health...

    Controlling My Anger

    So, I've noticed as my depression is... Different. I went from being a quiet person who had some crying spells here and there, to someone who is really sensitive and flies off the handle when he's angry... I shout and slam doors. Doesn't help that I've been feeling really insecure as of late and...

    I don't know what to do anymore

    Anybody else on here have a legit fear of other people or feel like you're so socially inept to the point where you can not communicate with the majority of other people? My mom and social worker came to visit today they were giving me crap about not leaving the house and not working i feel...

    My day

    <Mod edit - timeline>. The decision isn't based off life being shit or anything, just simply not wanting to be alive at all (not wanting to try at life). Well if I had to give a reason which could be close, maybe me having depression episodes and doing really dumb things under that influence...

    "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"...

    Got sent home from work yesterday

    My boss noticed I wasn’t quite myself and brought me into her office. She’s super sweet and kind and lovely and she made sure I understood this was not boss-to-employee, but rather human-to-human, and asked if I was okay. I basically had a total breakdown in her office and told her how I’ve been...
