Always clenching teeth

I don't do it when I sleep, but I'm always doing it when I'm awake. It makes my jaw sore, and it hurts my teeth. I only started doing it a little over a month ago, but now I do it non-stop. Does anyone have any ideas how I can stop doing it?

Music and Mental State

Do you find that your current state of mind dictates what you feel comfortable listening to?

I know that if I am being affected by my depression or am just sad over something in general, I cannot listen to music that is melancholy or too emotive as it will make me cry. In fact most of my life I've avoided this kind of music even though I do like some artists that make 'sad' songs ...

I feel so lost, why is that?

I know I need to seek out professional help in this point in my life because I feel lost, I have already experienced bad thoughts of wanting to stop the emotional and psychological pain and cease to exist altogether. I could barely soothe the agony I was experiencing, and I suffer from anxiety and depression – an ongoing condition for practically ever since adolescence to varying degrees. The trigger was a rejection from someone I ...

yep

i suppose this is just me throwing a line out to see if there's anyone relatable out there to talk to.

i have one of those things you can't talk about in early life that has led to depression and guilt.

fast forward to 11 yo. withdrawn. bad parents. i seek refuge on the internet, places like 4chan. i encounter a "gore video" and have an existential crisis. sick to my stomach i felt compelled ...

one sided conversations

I know a couple of people who have mental illness. They ignore questions and just say something totally unrelated in response to a question.

Like I may ask how was your date? And they answer with "I'm trying this new diet and exercise regime etc...." And never answer the question.

Then I ask another question it doesn't get answered, they just go on about something else.

What is this?

Struggling in the covid world

I'm losing it.
I don't go out often anyway, but when I do... it's so hard.
Not because I'm afraid to get sick, I could care less. I think everyone is overreacting.
But the masks

The masks are killing me

Faceless people.
Suffocation.

Wearing a mask is killing me. I do not want to. It is mentally breaking me.
And then seeing all the faceless people... like my nightmares.
I can't take it much longer

Ever since I was around 5-6 years old (I'm missing many memories of childhood, but I do remember this part), I'm not sure if it started earlier than this, but what ...
