    It’s been so long, guys. So much has happened. Most of it is stress.

    1. My parents are thieves and stole my knife, which makes me mad af but I’m sure will make you happy.
    2. My dad installed another block in the internet to block BT from my computer, so I’m working on hacking that. (I’ve got a temporary 5 minute window that I’m using rn.)…[Read more]

    • I’m so sorry this is happening to you. I can’t believe your ex is still being a dick towards you even though you forgave him, that’s not how it’s supposed to be done and approached. I can’t believe your ex thinks your faking your depression for attention, that’s fucking wrong and will always be wrong, you never faked anything in front of us,…[Read more]

    • Please don’t let your horrible ex have any power over you @985921sqh, he has absolutely no right being mean towards you, you deserve so much better Echo, please don’t listen to him, struggling with depression is NOT attention seeking, you are such a lovely person who wants the sadness to stop, do open up about your thoughts, feelings and emotions…[Read more]

    I was on the wrong medication for the last two weeks. My psychiatrist thought my anxiety was too high, and doubled the dosage.

    Hey, guys.

    I’m under a lot of pressure right now.

    My friend called me yesterday morning, frantic and hysterical. She told me that her mother was abusive, and that she had called the police on her. She ran out of the house to her homework club and stayed there, where she called me. I offered to do whatever I could, but there wasn’t much. I…[Read more]

    • You are trying hard enough, you just don’t know the options that could possibly help her. Do whatever you can do to make your friend safe. Texting and calling her is sufficient help for the moment just so that you have regular contact with her and make sure she’s ok. Some options may be risky, but it’s for the greater good to make sure she is in a…[Read more]

    • That definitely sounds like a bad situation for your friend to be in. It’s very nice of you to offer whatever you can to help her. As for the last paragraph, don’t think of depression as a test of worthiness or a competition. Everyday happiness is more like pain tolerance or the ability to eat Marmite. Some people just don’t have it, some…[Read more]

    So… I’ve lost six pounds in about, what, a week and a half, probably due to my fast metabolism and already slight frame. Everyone around me seems to move, speak, and react faster.

    • With those facts, whatever the truth is, it doesn’t sound like your ex was somebody you’d want to be around anyways. I’d say it’s not worth the time and effort to think about or find out who he’s spending time with. You’re very likely better off without him and it’s best to keep him in the past- not the present. Right?
