    Hello, I am new to this site and messaging of this sort but glad I discovered sf. Tried chatting with hotline but extremely difficult, don't feel comfortable speaking on the phone...I was giving up. Couple of years ago diagnosed w major depression and PTSD went thru counseling some good some not so good experiences. Just struggling, feel so unbelievably worthless and unlovable...don't know how I became this person feel like everyone (or most) hate me. Have major social anxiety comes and goes at the moment it is visiting....can't even go to my bf's daughters graduation so depressing. I miss many of his family events and gatherings, they are unaware of my depression and anxiety so I figure they certainly hate me and likely tell my bf he should kick me to the curb.

    We'll I am rambling there's just way too much baggage and my fingers are getting tired lol. Anyhoo, I am learning my way around this site and look forward to getting acquainted with others and hopefully help in any small way, if possible. I appreciate any advice, direction, encouragement, words of wisdom, etc.... offered and I will do my best likewise. Peace ~~

    Welcome ValentineBabe!

    Sometimes I feel nobody likes me or cares about me. But deep inside I know it is not true. We should not expect the worst from people. There are many people that simply love us for no reason. Love is not always easy to explain or to understand.
    I am sure there are people in your life, even if not from your close social circles, that really cares for you and would sympathise with your situation.
    I am glad you are here now and I am confident that you will be very useful in this community. :)

    Thank you everyone, I can see how helpful this site can be already. You have lifted my spirits with just a few words, just knowing someone else is out there, can relate and is willing to take the time to make a few exchanges is so worth it. There is no one in my life that I feel comfortable sharing my pain and darkness with so again, thank you. Blessings to all of you I hope to return the favor :)

    My day started a full of melancholy, because I dreamed about my ex. We were both humans turned into dogs running away from a real angry dog. But I was protecting him from it.

    I went to the suburbs, as usual, to the volunteer project I participate. The children always make me forget about my problems.
    Then I had lunch with a friend (which is pregnant). We talked a little about future.
    I think I am getting better. I didn't have any really bad feeling today. I think maybe I am taking control of my life again. Just maybe :)
