    If you helped someone, would you wish to know?

    I always assumed that if you helped someone in a significant way, it would be something you wished to know, something that would make you happy to know, but I had a conversation recently that suggested some people dont care if they know or not. I just thought I would post a poll, feel free to...

    Inevitability

    I know that on <mod edit - timeline>, my mother will be dead. She has been telling me for months at this point that she will kill herself come this time. She is 47, her health is terrible (physical and mental), she has no friends, does not talk to anyone, does not leave the house, and has zero...

    How to unlearn toxic behaviours?

    I always try my best to be a kind person, but my mental health struggles can often cause me to be toxic and frankly very cruel towards friends and family. Some examples of this are: I vent to others without prior permission or warning. I rely on others too heavily for help when they are...

    Where should I start when it comes to recovery?

    I've been depressed and self hating for many many years and it has gotten so so terribly bad recently. I've finally decided I want to start and try to recover/be better/idk how else to call it, but I have no idea where to start. I don't have access to therapy at the moment, especially due to...

    What exactly is this feeling?

    We have every mental issue there is all under one roof in this forum, from a normal reaction to a bad month/year/life to severe diagnosable dysfunction, so since my Google-Fu is a little hit and miss, I wanted to ask this congregation of the extremely qualified if there is a specific name to...

    Ideas & Opinions Verbal/Emotional Abuse???

    Hi, I’m 17, and I think my parents may be verbally/emotionally abusing me but I’m uncertain. They make negative comments/jokes that I find insulting to my appearance and my intelligence, among other things. They reserve the right to go through my phone with or without my permission or knowledge...

    no reason to live

    Is there ever such thing as a 'reason to live'? At least I don't have one. There is nothing in my life to look forward to - even if there is, I don't want to hold onto something as uncertain as the future because it's only going to give me false hope and disappoint me. I try to think about the...

    Work won’t let me take off despite living with a family member at high risk for COVID-19?

    The first case of the Coronavirus has been discovered in my town and lucky me, I work at the grocery store in town. I still live with my folks so I’m with them while all the schools are shit down. My parents want me to take off work so that I don’t kill them. My father has a very weak immune...

    Mental Illness develops on reaction?

    I've had many brushes of what seemed to be something serious. To some I reacted badly, others, I managed to conquer before the thoughts would consume me. Before I share some random ideas of how I reacted/conquered certain ideas, I want you to take note not everyone has the same experience/it's...

    Favorite meditation/s?

    If you know of any videos, audios which helped you with what you're dealing with either temporarily or otherwise, post them here. Here's one which gave me a sense of relief a good few times (aimed at depression): For social phobia, listening to loud noises and such helped a lot, allowing...

    How to keep your mouth under control?

    I had this bad habit for all of my life. I usually very very quiet, my friends keep complaining when I dont say anything when we're together(I only listening to them). I tried my best to keep silent because I had this habit, I always and always make people mad everytime I caught off guard and...

    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...

    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...

    Perfect girl but she's a demon made to destroy myself and everyone who comes in contact with her

    I met this girl and I'm not joking when I say she is almost perfect. The problem is she is so broken and unstable that I can't be in a relationship with her anymore. Every 2 days I'm dealing with a different person who just wants to destroy everything. She is incredibly manipulative, which is...
