Hypokalemic sensory overstimulation and me

I'm not sure if this is "mental illness" but I believe I have Hypokalemic sensory overstimulation. This means that my body depletes potassium too fast, so I have to eat potassium-rich foods such as bananas and chocolate nuts so I won't feel dizzy.

Anyone else like this? What should I do, as I don't know where to turn.

I need serious help, what's wrong me?

Hello, I have been experiencing depression and anxiety my whole life. It was in and out of foster homes my whole childhood, my dad commitment suicide while I was 9 after he murdered an innocent person for drug money.

I have nobody to talk to in the world but here.

Well, here it goes. I can't hold it in much longer and I really need to let out my thoughts. If it's too long for you to read I understand.

I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place.

I have no friends and every time I get up in the morning I just don't realize it's another boring, depressing day. I go to school and I don't really have the drive to ...

No one knows

When you're a little kid, and you fall, bang your head, and start crying, everybody comes running to soothe you. They hold you, rub your head, telling you it's going to be okay. It still hurts, and you're crying like mad, but you're listening, soaking it all in, and soon you stop crying and all that comforting begins to have an effect and you feel better. You feel secure.
As you grow older, you learn ...
