    Hi! So, I’m looking for a way to incorporate using this site in my life. I recently left therapy(about 2 weeks ago) because both my therapist and I thought it was time to try to be out in the world, but before I left I said I'd try to find support somewhere, so here I am. I'm not good in group settings because I get overwhelmed easily, and it's a struggle to post anything, but I'm giving this a try. Right now, I’d like to find some way of feeling less alone in this world, but I struggle connecting with anyone. I have no friends(aside from my pet bunny), and I left my family over 10 years ago; even when I was with them I felt alone. I’m not sure I’ve ever connected with anyone my entire life, and I’m not sure how I’m going to get there or how long it will take for me to get there. I could continue, but I’m going to end with a question for all of you.

    I’ll need to find what works best for me, but I’m open to suggestions of how you use this site for support, connection, just feeling better, or any other way you use this site?

    What are some plans you’ve had to put on hold due to your health or uncertainty? #CheckInWithMe

    Whether you’re a planner or more spontaneous (or somewhere in between), what is something you have had to put on hold due to your health or uncertainty? Maybe it was something “small” like a day with friends or a shopping trip. Or maybe it was something “bigger” like a vacation, going to college or starting a new job.

    I’ve made my fair share of cancelations due to my health. I have had to cancel a lot of plans because I could shake my anxiety or I was dealing with a chronic pain flare-up wasn’t subsiding any time soon.

    And then there are the times I’ve canceled because of uncertainty. Either I didn’t have all the details of the plan and I felt too nervous to ask for them, or I didn’t have a good gut feeling about it. I’ve even had to put plans on hold, as many others have as well, due to the uncertainty of the pandemic.

    I would love if you’d share with me some plans that you’ve had to put on hold due to your health or some uncertainty you’ve faced in the comments below.

    #numb #BingeEating #compulsivebehaviors ##Uncertainty

    I can't describe what I feel since months ago. Only the occasional crying that let out because its better to express and feel something. I binge eat and I compulsively cut the skin of my feet and eat it (embarrassing 😳). I think this is probably on the way of me knowing what I really feel and what I really want. And the added watching videos on youtube and watching movies and series on Netflix. I wonder 🤔 why I have to do something all the time. I can't sit still without distracting myself. The psychometric test will take tome to be administered; until the end of September to take it and 3 months more for the results. It's not a simple process. They will be analyzing the possibility of ADHD inattentive type and aspects of my personality.

    It's a constant battle in my mind to stop what I am doing even if its boring and I don't love it to get things done. I am a procrastinating all the time. I can't do things and reward myself afterwards. Set goals or see in the future something for me. I just am in the present and looking inmediate rewards with the above activities and with buying material things. I am stuck. Could be that I don't want to face the future just like I did as a child when I didn't want to grow up. I have childhood trauma to work on. Also had #SelectiveMutism and #SocialAnxiety which was never addressed. I can speak in past about this matter, but I am not sure I am over it. Yes probably the #SelectiveMutism because I can speak in all situations except not that good in job interviews or authority figures like a boss or supervisor. Looks more like social anxiety and insecurity. There's a lot I don't like about jobs, and I don't want to work for money. I want meaning or at least peace of mind because I don't do well in stressful job environments or high demanding positions or working with various task at the same time. Also getting organized under these circumstances is very hard. Just wanted to express myself and read about people that understand or have similar experiences.

    The Struggles with uncertainty future and The stresses #Anxiety

    I am truly depressed and unhappy with ways how I face my life. How dare I let myself get to this position? I overextended myself to degree of being Codependency to my friend and that strains our friendship. I stepped back and take look at myself and focus on myself. How heck do I start to heal myself? How can I stop myself from overstepping people’s boundary? how can I set my boundaries if I cannot stop overstepping other’s? All thoughts are overwhelming me and make me feel lowest piece of animal. My depression sprouted after I moved to Hotel and tried to keep up with postivity for nearly month before move into Airbnb. MY depression spirals out of control. The trigger unfolded me and my mental happened a week ago. I took myself out of that situation fast and focused on myself. My therapist is going to work on my codependency and set boundaries. I think that I has finally losing myself and mind within myself to the point where I am at loss to help myself. I am humble with yall with be survivors of depression, codependency, emotional abuse, and boundaries issues. All of you guys are strong and having the support system are very important....

    My future is in questions since I have lot of things to work on. I think I might have to put everything on hold and focus on myself and my mental health for a year before I process on to discover my passions and maybe a love of my life....

    Oh oye, how do we ge through this?
