Boyfriend suffers from anxiety and depression

Hello. I hope that no one will take offense that I post here not about myself but about my boyfriend. I apologize in advance if this post is long. I feel very helpless and confused, and unsure of what is the best course of action.

A bit of context about myself:

I am in my early forties, separated since a year with two children (5 and 7). I had an 18 year long relationship with ...

Reflecting back peoples emotions / no filter


Sorry if this is the wrong part of the forum. I have realized recently that I reflect back peoples emotions towards me, if they are feeling angry I will start feeling angry etc.

My personality can feel highjacked at times. I have been diagnosed with A.D.D but could this be due to something else?

I really struggle to take back control of my emotions again, especially if the person is angry/abusive.

I work in a hospital and I deal with COVID rule-out/positive patients administratively... a lot of employees have declined to show up to work by calling out or they refuse to work the COVID floor... I'm there without fear because its my job. I have my fears but at the same time, sadly, I don't have anyone waiting for me at home. If I met my demise, it would only be just me. It hurts ...

First Post - not sure where it should go ....

Hello to all.

I'll try to summarise my feelings as quickly as possible, so as not to bore people - but guess first off I am looking for help in knowing which 'forum' (slot, category, label) I should post to and fit in.

I'm 67 - from the age of 16 I have always had a 'goal' of some sort - went to colleges for different qualifications;; always wanting to learn; discovered computers in 1973 ...

What's Wrong with Me

I'm terrified to talk about my issues and have kept them a secret for a long time. I've never told anyone, and I've been experiencing this since my memories began (about 5). I'm 36 now. Things got better for a little while, but now all of a sudden it's getting worse.

I kept it all a secret because I'm afraid that I'll be rejected and locked away in a room with white walls. I don't ...

So as you all know by now, COVID19, also known as the Corona virus, is hitting the entire planet pretty hard right now. I personally have to keep working because I am an essential employee, according to not only my country, but my state. Some other people aren't as lucky, and have either been laid off because of it, or are forced to go without pay because of it.

It's important that you practice good ...

Fear, panic & mass hysteria…Covid 19

Fear. Just the name in itself can be enough to generate its namesake. Repeated enough & the intensity could be increased to full blown panic. Of course at a mild level, fear is nothing more than caution, which can be a good thing. Even having some degree of fear can be helpful, in order to keep us out of a potentially harmful or dangerous situation. In dealing with the worldwide outbreak of this year’s Coronavirus ...

I just don’t know

i don’t know what to do, or even how to write all of this down. I have been in a relationship for 4 years. When i first met my partner he was in such a dark place, where he would harm himself and just be so angry but never at me. I know these were red flags, but seeing his pain made me feel so bad, seeing how unhappy he was reminded me of myself. ...
