    I’m very happy for you @blackdog!! You really deserve a good therapist that cares about you, it’s helpful, professional and kind. I’m sure it’ll work out fantastically with him ^^

    My past haunts me
    My present saddens and depresses me
    My future depresses, saddens and terrifies me because it’s so non – existent
    It’s all so hopeless and pointless :(
    I don’t have a life, I exist with no plans, hopes or dreams
    Just trying to survive each day without hope or positivity :(

    Mood : Depressed
    • You’ve put so much of your effort into helping others with an encouraging word. You deserve all the blessings and love the world can provide

    • The three of them can be terrifying and unnerving to think about. They have the power to petrify us and make us unable to keep going on. Try to focus in the little things dear Oli. You are an amazing human being, that only pursues for good in this world, and to help any soul who needs it. I and the BT community care about you my friend. You…[Read more]

    • Hang in there, maybe try to attend some free / online alcoholic meetings or find blogs/ discussion boards. Why are you drinking so much? Get to the root, and you can gain control. It’s scary, but not impossible.

    • The battle with alcohol is a very tough one. Reach to somebody that you can trust @krishna-pramod, and seek for professional help if needed. Keep holding on, and remember that we are here for you if you need it <3
