    I wish I lived alone

    I feel so trapped and hopeless. I've been this way for years. I'm stuck living with my mum and her aggressive partner and it's killing me inside. He has extreme anger issues just like my father. I feel like a naughty child when in fact I'm a 24-year-old woman with a Masters degree from a great...

    I'm afraid I have become like my abusers.

    Almost every night I have horrible nightmares about my past trauma. Either it is of the event, or it is a nightmare of me either being chased, killed or tortured. And I don't know why, but when I wake up, it takes at most a few hours to realize that I am no longer dreaming and am conscious and...

    Taking care of my sick mom

    This is pretty long so brace yourselves... My mother has chronic glomerulitis and has been undergoing hemodialysis for 8 years now. I just recently graduated last June and had all kinds of plans for myself. Then, my mother's condition started to worsen and we found out that she has sepsis due to...

    Why is my family so mean to me?

    I don't know why, but almost my whole family acts as if they hate me. My Mom constantly says she hates me, but treats me like a daughter the next day. It doesn't help that she drinks, which may be the main factor since she acts like herself when she is sober. But she has had her days when she...

    Anyone else?

    So I find this hard to explain but, (I assume) due to my BPD, I find that I'm very in tune to others feelings. Particularly those close to me such as family. But I can't control it. It's like empathy where I can for some reason pretty much always relate to/feel how the person is feeling but I...

    Reasons that I matter

    today I went to my therapist and i had a really good conversation with her about how I felt about myself. Long story short I told her that I felt like I don’t really matter and that while I’m not suicidal, my life doesn’t really have a purpose and I burden those around me. My therapist told me...

    It's all piling up and I can't dig my way out

    My grandmother had a stroke in February of this year. The day before that I found out my girlfriend had cheated on me and slept with someone. After we break up she starts dating a new guy and she doesn't know his last name. I constantly saw her in school with him, he was usually kissing her and...

    Hello, I just joined and am seeking information and help. My son attempted suicide a week ago. He is in the hospital right now getting good care and and making progress.

    I can't control myself

    I'm not good at writing so let's just get right into it. I just randomly shouted at my family. They didn't do anything wrong, they just said the wrong things in the wrong moment. I shouted, I hit the fridge with my hands, I don't know why, I didn't think. Went upstairs, slammed the door and...

    Family trouble

    I don't get along well with my family. My entire life I felt like they hated me. They have stopped and became "supportive", stopped the abuse (specially physical) bad everything. But they never noticed I was depressed, they ignored all of my mental health issues and have always put me as lazy...

    I am the problem again

    I just want to fucking scream right now. I had plans for the weekend, I wanted to get out of here and just be in a good mood; everything was supposed to be awesome as it is. And it started perfectly well! I was at a friend's place and we (friends and me) played Pathfinder (that's a Pen and...

    My sister

    My sister has been deeply depressed her whole adult life, she's now 48. It appears by her texts she's getting ready to end her life, putting some affairs in order, etc. She has casually threatened suicide for the last few years. A text from last year "I doubt I'll make it to the end of the...

    My father is threatening suicide periodically.

    I know this is a lot to read, but please help me. It's all important. Please. He threatened it again yesterday. He and my mother got into a argument. He started hitting himself hard on the face, and trying to move towards the bathroom. I told him I was about to have a nervous breakdown, and...

    I've also had a strained relationship with Mother

    My Mother and I are both very strong minded individuals. My Mother is a control freak, she always has been and always will be. She can be vindictive and down right nasty at times but she's my Mother and I do love her. When I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter, my Mother was very...

    Hello, Here's a quick run down of how our relationship has progressed; We met on Match and instantly hit it off, he has one son from a previous relationship and I have one daughter from a previous relationship. He is my first real relationship ever. We've been together for two years and we got...

    I feel the most lonely I've ever felt.

    So I guess this has to do with family, friends and relationships. I'm one of the younger people on here and I just want to know I'm not the only one who ever feels this way. I've been doing so well. I haven't SH since thanks giving day. I honestly thought I was doing okay. But now I feel this...

    Struggling to move forward

    My family used to be really, so I understand that the older generations want everyone to be "best friends". Recently however I seem to be having a really hard time keeping my relationship as strong as it used to be with my cousin, T. T and I grew up inseparable but in the past few years he's...
