Your Stories on Anxiety & Depression

Hey you Stranger! Dont be so hard on yourself, this journey is wonderful and its yours! What youre going through is normal and you dont need to be perfect or let the judgement of others let you down. They dont know what you feel, because you were so hurt and confused you jus COULDNT tell them how you were feeling again, you screamed, cryed, thought you were gonna die...but you are here on this very daay, you stood up in front of them, smiled and youre gonna keep fighting. y r STRONG

Its difficult being on this app hearing there is so many other ppl in pain and it's hard to be in pain by yourself. I dont think this app is helping me but I am about 5000 miles from home right now and I dont know where else to turn.

My ex boyfriend who I dated more than a year broke up with me and a few months later my mom passed away suddenly at a young age. I still cannot let the resent and bad feelings go. I still have lots of resents. I know that there are lots of good things happened in my life, too and I should believe that there are going to be more good things happening in my life. But right now, I just do not want to get up from bed and don’t know how to forgive.

I can’t get out of bed anymore. I’m so low that I just can’t lift my mood, all I can do is cry and stare into space. I feel as if it’s never gonna get better. I don’t even know how I got so low, but I just can’t get out of the feeling that i’m Not good enough for everyone around me

Social anxiety is something I can't get rid of. Whenever I'm at a store and there's an employee offering food samples, I just try to avoid them which sucks because I wanna get a food sample. I'm hungry 😔

I broke two toes and that means I need to rest at home and have a hard time moving from one place to another. From past experiences I know staying at home for more than a day and being bored in general is not good for me mental health wise. Wish me luck for this week of recovery!

What’s the point anyway?

I am getting so frustrated with my friends, they really want to know, what’s up and help me but with everything that I have been through and am going through it is best if they all just back off. They are frustrating me so much and I am really uncomfortable around them I can bearly talk to them or be around them. They will never get how hard life with anxiety is.

I just want to leave it in Gods hands like ... You’ll find happiness, You’ll find love, Just give it time and when your not searching it’ll come but then I remember that life’s short & not everyone gets the opportunity to LIVE & I’m trying to LIVE not just be ALIVE. I only live once & in this once I want happiness & love.

Everyday usually one little thing makes me sad in some way and I wish they wouldn’t get to me but they do and they just build up and then by the end of the month I just want to cry because I want to let it out but I can’t. Like I’ll think of sad things and I’ll just try to cry to let it out but it doesn’t come.

One thing that helps me with my anxiety is playing a video game. Specifically The Sims 4. You are basically in control of everything, but you aren’t. The code sets limits, other sims can say no, and there are only so many options to chose from. It helps me realize that I can’t control other people or the outcomes of situations, plus I can play a sim that is who I want to be so I can get there over time.

My friends keep texting me but I haven’t responded to any of them. I don’t know what’s going on but I can’t bring myself to answer them.

God I haven’t spoken to you in a while. I feel like your trying to get me closer to you. Everywhere I go people talk about u. Out of no where I’m reminded of you consistently. I love you and I pray for everyone that is struggling. In Jesus name amen.

Why must everything be so hard? All I wanted since I was young was an easy life, but it has only gotten harder. Try to fight everything, trying to stay on my feet everyday. Trying to fight all the thoughts in my head. All I wish for is for someone to be close to me and stay forever, but everyone has abandoned me even the one I loved the most.

Last 3 days I didn't have time to think and I am so wonderfully tired and grateful for that.

I'm a girl who's pansexual and in love with her best friend (who is a girl) and she likes a different girl so very obviously. She's never off my mind and I want to die more than ever. I have trouble looking at ropes or the colour green because I tried to hang myself in the past and I used to cut myself in a field near my house in the summer, and now it's getting worse. Please help me

I just want to scream! Cry heavy & throw things. I just want to fight and hurt everyone’s feelings. I want go go crazy & show people how they made me but I don’t. I keep everything inside & feel this humongous pressure inside my body. Something wants to come out of me... I’m just scared it’ll break me.
