Completely overwhelmed & confused

Hello. I have no idea where to go, I have nobody to talk to, so here I am. For several years now, I've been living with anxiety (panic attacks, choking fear, social issues, low self esteem...) I'm turning 18 in a couple of months and have tried to reach out to my mother twice (2015,2016) but it didn't help. She thought I was going through the normal teenage phase. Growing up. Even though she knows ...

A year ago today my mum passed away

I have struggled ever since with flashbacks. The past few days they have increased and im finding it hard dealing with them.

It was quite traumatic for me especially as the hospital staff were quite terrible. They called us to speak to them and during it i interrupted and said i need to be with my mum now. As i got there her oxygen levels were on 11. A nurse never stayed with her and ...

Can't cope

He's destroyed me.

I won't survive in prison.

He's got what he wanted all along.
I won't be able to have kids.

He's destroyed every inch of me.
I have nothing left.

Are we really on the brink of WW3?

Hi All!

First post on here. As the title suggests I’m really struggling with the idea that we are on the brink of World War 3.

This is all started at the beginning of the year and I haven’t been able to shake it since. My anxiety has been through the roof, so much so that I am starting to have dreams/nightmares about WW3 on a regular basis. I am also having Intrusive thoughts and ...

***TW Suicidal thoughts*** Is this all a dream?

"Real life" feels phony, it feels like a fake set-up; a metaphorical prison. Objects, people, emotions, thoughts- everything seems odd and peculiar... I feel as if I am in multiple places at once, and I have completely lost the ability to trust. I feel dead, I often get paranoid that I have died a while ago and I am half alive. I have felt so out of touch, that when I DO feel in touch, ...

Drank from bottle with safety seal removed- ease my fears?

I got a bottle of cough syrup from the store and I noticed it didn't have an outer or inner safety seal. I took one serving and then started to worry that maybe I shouldn't have. I called the store and they said it definitely should have had one and that it might have been returned and mistakenly put back on the shelf. my mind is going crazy thinking of the worst case scenarios-poisoned, put ...

How do we move on from here?

I feel very hopeless today. Like nothing is ever going to be okay.

And I see that other people on the forum reach a low point sometimes and write about how they just cannot see any light in their future.

So how do we move on? And how do we avoid to end up here again and again? Maybe that's too much of a question, I just really would like to know.

I don't know what to say

Hi I can't believe I'm posting this but I feel like I'm losing my grip on reality(I'm hoping it's just anxiety ) I'm 18 and have never experienced hallucinations or delusions but I feel depersonalised a lot of the time and sometimes I question reality and it makes me really anxious. I just don't know what to do and I just wish this wasn't happening:( I might write up why I think I'm experiencing this ...

Am I an idiot?

I have what people might call a moderately successful life (so far). I have an awesome girlfriend, a great job, independence, whatever you want. And yet, I still feel I am an idiot. I have reached a great job position already and I am in the top of my professional field virtually worldwide, even if I am not even 30 yo. However, I still think I am an idiot. And I mean, there is voice ...

OCD, Bipolar, Anxiety. What do have? What is correct drug?

I have a mental illness but doctors have not been able to diagnose or treat me correctly. I am going to tell you my short story with facts in case some doctor reads this and can give me hope or help me.

The mental illness became unbearable when I was director of internet at a company with eight magazines. It was the fourth year working there and I couldn’t take it anymore.

How it started? ...
