Re: Depressed Boyfreind - How to help?

The fact that he admitted this to you is a big step for him and shows the level of trust he has in you. I don't know how much he has told you, but I'd gently inquire how long has he been feeling this way? Has he ever seen a therapist or talked with an MD about it. Are his parents a good resource to ...

Re: So miserable, I don't know where to turn or what to do

This happened to me too. I had a job, but between the economic downturn and my child needing me more at home, I quit, which probably was for the best at that time. I went into a downturn, in fact my entire family experienced something that I don't even know how to describe let alone talk about. I we...

Re: Does anyone get depressed from disapproval? (social anxiety)

Yes. But then what I try to do is try to honestly look at the contents of what they are saying, not maybe how they said it, and own the stuff that is mine. Some people don't know how to give constructive criticism. But just because they word it poorly doesn't mean it won't help you become aware of a...

My disappointment and Anxiety Got the Best of Me Yesterday

I was upset after awhile because I was upset and just awful to my daughter and husband and trying to get control of myself which wasn't working at all. I think the last straw was when I saw a kid 'murder' a rhubarb stalk and just waste it, when my neighbors poisoned my rhubarb garden this spring. I ...

Re: I got asked how I'm feeling today [rant enclosed]

LOLOLOL Not at your pain but at your response. So familiar to my earlier experiences. When I was a little girl, and then a teen, and even into my 20s, my mother would ask how I was feeling and so I could tell her in detail how I was feeling. My mom is awesome like that. The only other people who eve...

I saw this one on a sweatshirt at the fireworks, and from now on, this is my motto when life seems to start to overwhelm me.

Re: Agoraphobia - what a drag

I understand agoraphobia. There are some days I feel like I cannot even leave 'the safety of my room,' which ironically is probably not safe at all if I want to live life well. A lot of people have mental health pets. These are usually in the form of a dog or a very tolerant and outdoor loving cat. ...

I Don't Understand

I remember a lot of things, but the way that I remember myself best, is as a guardian angel. I was the guardian angel of a little girl, sweet, beautiful, kind, loving, smart, etc. She loved flowers and bumble bees and butterflies and dragon flies and the smell of a field full of clover and the smell...
