    Since I last was on, here is the stuff that has impacted my life:

    1. My ex and I got back together last week
    2. I gave him a hall pass (because I move really slow in relationships) on the condition that he tell me when he used it and then he didn’t do that. Then I find out hes been exchanging nudes with this girl and wants to hook up with…[Read more]

    Mood : Depressed
    • Don’t let him have any power over you @985921sqh, honestly he is a jerk Echo and you are such a beautiful angel who deserves so much better, I would cut him out of your life and move forward focusing on your happiness and wellbeing sweetie, what happened to you in the ninth grade was so wrong Echo, no one ever deserves to be raped or sexually…[Read more]

    • @oliver, tbh its over and i just want to be done with it so i dont plan to report it.

    • He doesnt respect you. Its best to cut all ties with him no matter how much it hurts

    • We’ve already discussed this earlier, so there’s not much to say. TJ is a cool guy, he just needs to learn how to live his life correctly. We’ll try our best to talk you out of dating him again, you don’t deserve the relationship he has given you, no one does in general honestly. I’m still very sorry for what happened to ya in the 9th grade,…[Read more]

    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]

    I was on the wrong medication for the last two weeks. My psychiatrist thought my anxiety was too high, and doubled the dosage. Not only did it increase my anxiety, it completely obliterated my motivational anxiety, causing me to go into full blown “I don’t give a shit” mode, I stopped doing my classwork, my homework, and pretty much everything I…[Read more]

    • Just a couple suggestions— if you don’t have a 504 plan in place already at your school, they are available to students with diagnoses (either physical or psychological) who need reasonable accommodations to successfully access their curriculum/education.

    • That really sucks, It’s ok if you don’t want to do work at the moment, as long as you can take care of yourself and get the appropriate medications needed for your anxiety, you’ll be in safe hands. Take it easy lad, don’t build up this stress and pressure onto yourself because that’s not healthy, and it’ll slow you down even more which is…[Read more]

    • @listeningemma, @oliver, and @anxietyattack66 – Thank you so much for the suggestions. I have a 504 already in place, but maybe it’s time to review my accommodations. Thank you for your kindness, too. Your words always brighten my day. And, lastly, thank you for your understanding. I really appreciate your advice.

      Please don’t kill yourself, i’ve known you for at least a year or so and I can safely say that you’re one of the greatest friends i’ve ever met. You’ve helped me a lot and always had something to say whenever I was in a bad…[Read more]

    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]

    Mood : Stressed
    • That’s so horrible @985921sqh, your friend doesn’t deserve to be abused, no one does, you are doing the right thing Echo, always be the compassionate, sweet and caring friend that is always there to support and love her, do get her to open up to you and the police about her home situation, hopefully your friend will find a safe and loving place…[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]

    Today I’m wearing a binder because my dysphoria is really bad. My parents won’t let me cut my hair short so that doesn’t help. My mother saw all my scars from me cutting and she said ”If you really want to cut that bad, get over here and I’ll show you how to do it the right way” I don’t know what to do anymore.

    So, I think I had a psychogenic blackout yesterday. I googled it, and google was all like, “oh by the way, these are like, seizures and stuff” so that scared me until I saw the other bit –

    Basically what happened was I took an AP test. In the middle, my anxiety spiked through the roof, and I don’t remember the second half of the test. Nor do…[Read more]

    • I’d really recommend talking to your physician about this, for a referral to a good therapist (if you aren’t already seeing one.) A CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) approach is terrific for managing anxiety and helping provide you with coping skills when faced with situations that send you into “fight/flight/freeze” modes of anxiety.
