Depression/anxiety caused by emotional blockage

Hi, I'm a 21-year-old man from Spain and I decided to log in here to ask for advice.

I've been suffering from anxiety and depression for about 3 years, for which I'd been taking medication until August of 2016. My doctor recommended I stop the treatment since I was feeling better, but it has come back just as it was at the beginning.

I've just started the treatment again but I'm now perfectly aware that ...

Is daytime more difficult for anyone else?

The sun is just about rise here, and I am dreading it...

I prefer the comfort of the night: that is usually when I feel the most happy.

It is as if the sun is illuminating all of the happy lives of others while I stand by and watch things go by...

I judge my performance in therapy

I have a need to be super coherent when I'm speaking with my therapist. I'm way better when I'm planning things out so it's similar to why people like texting over talking. I subconsciously grade myself on my performance after therapy.
Did I stutter?
Was I clear enough?
Did I rant too long?
Did I let my therapist speak?
Was there any progress today?
Another thing that I've been doing now is obsessing over words. ...

Bad day. Death by 1000 cuts.

It all started when some asshole gave me a counterfeit 100$ bill and it ended in chaos. If I was a stronger person I would ignore everything and do a 'haters gonna hate' dance but I'm not. I'm weak. If it was still 2016 this would be my 6th job of that year. I have poor social skills and failing mental health. And I will hear about everything that went wrong today for weeks from ...

how I achieved the impossible possible

maybe I can help others with this opinion.

you know Einsteins pronunciation?: everybody's a genius. but if you judge a fish by Its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it's stupid.

It was not this pronunciation why i could do what i have done, i find this wisdom on my own.

When I was 5 years old, experts told my parents I'm autistic and mentally disabled, I would ...

Things I dislike about my therapist after one short session.

-I hate that my therapist appears to be very close to my age (don't know her age yet). Makes me feel like she might not be very experienced.

-I hate that my therapist is trivializing my problems just because I'm not showing any symptoms in our sessions.

- I hate that me getting locked up is only a phone call away so I can never be fully honest with my therapist.

- I hate my ...

Abnormal dad

My dad never has a proper reasoning for doing things and lacks even the basic logic behind how things work. It's been about an year now since I have been having the type of relationship with my dad where I can't talk to him at all for any matter because he makes a big issue out of everything. He has a overly developed ego and gets super offended whenever I refer to him with the ...

Someone recognized these symptoms?


I'm from the Netherlands and i'm not so good in the English language, but I'll do my best.

I asked myself these question for a long time, tried to get answer on it from Dutch fora many times, but no one did recognize these symptoms. Why it is that important for me? Because experts thought for more than A decade I was autistic and mentally disabled, they believed I would never finish school, get ...

I feel trapped & hopeless

I don’t know what to do. I am writing this in the hopes that someone else out there may have some words of advice for me. I am home from college on winter break and I have been feeling very dissatisfied. I have had a lot of stress due to a certain person in my life, and my anxiety has made me feel worried, upset, and persistently nervous. This person is constantly on my mind ...

Extremely depressed, I'm getting really close

I have been severely depressed again. I'm getting really close to yet another suicide attempt if I don't admit myself to the hospital again. I am so afraid. I hate my job so much. Thinking about having to go in throws me into a terrible panic attack. My job is so boring and requires zero thinking. Therefore it allows me to obsess about my flaws and obsess over suicidal thoughts all night long. I hate ...
