I found out after 42 years of marriage that my husband is a cross dresser and does his thing while dressed like this. I had to go to mental hospital for 13 days. My kids I've had very little communication with cuz ya know you're a criminal I guess when you go to a mental hospital.

Extreme loss of motivation

It’s summer kids are out of school I have them in programs and have activities all for them for this summer.

For a few months now or at least in this moment while I’m writing this I am exhausted mentally I feel sad all I see on my Facebook etc is weight loss lose weight exercise this has not made me feel better about myself at all

It has made my inner critic more judgemental where I hate my body also it’s wreaking up my childhood drama from being bullied in middle school.

Yes I’ve been working with my therapist on this I see my new psychiatrist this Thursday too - my old one left and moved to Florida 🫠

This sadness and these thoughts have come up daily for weeks now and I’m having a hard time getting them to vacate and get out of this funky funk #Depression

What if it never gets better?

I did have optimism when I was younger but that’s probably because youth came with immaturity and a sense of being naive. Fast forward to the present time, I feel completely different due to many life’s circumstances and changes. My nonchalant attitude and numbness to everything has taken me out of life’s reality for the most part.

Now I feel comfortable in my depression and don’t want to let it go. I’m not sure if I should navigate through this or just let it be?

New Here

Hello, my name is Skylar I have learning disabilities: ADHD, OCD, Auditory Processing Disorder, Oral Expression Disorder, Severe Anxitey, and Depression. I feel sorry, anxious, depressed because I feel like people think I am annoying, crazy, weird, etc. It feels like nobody likes me or wants to be my friend. It feels like barely even anyone wants to be my friend. It feels like barely even anyone wants to text with me/hangout with me. It feels like I am invisible like some people dont even notice me. It makes me feel sad and lonely because it feels like nobody wants to be my friend.#Depression #anxitey #MentalHealth

Good old fashioned depression

My depression has me by the throat. It takes monumental effort just to hit the keys on the keyboard. Add physical pain to that - aside that which comes from the depression - and I just want to go back to bed. I want to force myself to do something productive but I know that gets me into trouble sometimes too - that's how I get so collapse-on-the-kitchen-floor exhausted. Also add suicidal ideation and it makes for a very "uncomfortable" place to be in. And there is stuff going on late this afternoon - I don't know what to do about it. I didn't want to make a phone call to one of my "go-to" people but maybe it's in order. It's either that or bury my head in the pillows.

I feel like my life been depression!

What do you do when you have fear, anxiety and depression with suicidal thoughts almost on a regular basis. Been raised being told your handicapped and worthless. Ignored by family members and not accepted by them. Lies being told by your own parent so others will distance themselves from you, even family. I had once thought I had finally had a big change in my life an life would be better. Only to lose someone who made a difference to suicide. That brought it all back even worse than before, feeling I had no right to exist. Nightmares, suicide attempts, heart attacks and more physical ailments. I don't know why or what I am doing. I still put up a face an tell others what they want to hear. When I try to get out there, I only get lied too, stolen from an used. I just want to be away from everyone an trying to deal day to day.
