Suggestion for free or very cheap supervision/motivation?

OK maybe this is a weird question, I don't know. What options are there to get help in being supervised for a few weeks so I can start work on projects I have to do?

Situation: I am getting too burned out because I'm only able to work by at night pulling all-nighters. And even then it's long days of torture mixed with long periods of distraction to recover from the torture of trying to ...

Tulpas and their effect on people with mental illness?

Hi all!

I'm new here. I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and have gotten medications for it which have helped me greatly in not feeling suicidal and being able to enjoy life.

I've discovered in myself traces of what could be described as Antisocial Personality Disorder, Schizoid Personality Disorder, Schizotypal Personality Disorder, and Asperger's Syndrome, though I was never officially diagnosed with either of these, maybe because I'm terrified when I'm faced with a ...

How do I show affection to people I’m not into sexually?

Didn’t know what section to ask this in.

But I have a hard time showing affection to friends and family.

The only person I show affection to is my girlfriend because I view affection as a sexual thing. To cuddle and hug and kiss, and say sweet things and I love you, at least for me, is soemthing you do with your partner.

I have a hard time giving my mom a hug or a ...

Hi guys. At first I'd like to apologize for my text being dry, I'm not genius or native english speaker.

I have been diagnosed with major depression, generalized and trauma anxiety, bipolar, and they also think I might have dissociation. I have been living in care home for a bit over a year ...

No Future

Not sure how to convey this because I have difficultly expressing my true feelings + theres a lot going on in my life, so I'll break it down. I'm in high school. I have very few friends but rarely talk to them outside of calling/texting because I feel like an embarrassment/too shameful to be seen in public. I've had this mentality for years but recently its gotten worse due to some dumb impulsive choices (I ...

I feel dead

I can't explain it but I have nothing to look forward to really at least not everyday and sometimes I sit and do nothing. :(

Don't care if I die I feel like my life is complete. Though I am not going to kill myself don't worry.

I doubt anyone will reply but at least I tried.

I get this feeling... Does anyone else?

Without going into my history or anything, I want to know if anyone experiences anything similar to this or knows what it could possibly be.

I get this feeling. I've had it all my life, the first time I remember having it I was about 5 years old.
It comes on all of a sudden, with no apparent trigger. It is physical, extremely strong and overpowering in it's intensity. It overtakes my whole body and ...

I’m in distress and finding it hard to keep going

Hey guys,

I’ve registered on here because I’m driving myself absolutely crazy with obsessive intrusive thoughts that are taking away all of my happiness.

I was ambitious, intelligent, successful. Then I got into a relationship which lasted for 8 years. My partner belittled me, ignored me, gaslighted me, completely isolated me from the rest of the world. I’ve always been a very gifted painter - since very young. It was my pride and joy in ...

Hi. Currently waiting for assessment (appointment in around a month via NHS)

I currently identify with both BPD and C-PTSD, fitting most of the criteria for both. I am aware there's some debate that they overlap or are the same thing. Can people compare and contrast these two for me. What are the symptoms that are in both? What symptoms appear only in one condition/disorder. Is it common to have both?
