    I’ve been feeling really exhausted and depressed for the last few weeks but am trying to pull myself out of it quickly, as I have some important school exams coming up. I did take some breaks from studying, and have been sleeping well, but it hasn’t helped much. Since I only have a few weeks of school left, I can power through it, but it really sucks.

    Mood : Depressed
    • Please don’t let depression, sadness and anxiety get you down @suiei, do work as hard as you can but look after yourself too emotionally, mentally and physically, it’s good to see you taking breaks, you will make it and come out so much stronger no matter what happens, look ahead towards your bright future that is filled with so much hope and…[Read more]

    I haven’t posted here in almost 2 years. I’ve been seeking professional counseling at my college for social anxiety/depression for the last year and a half. It’s been really helpful, but I’m still struggling in school, sitting through lectures, talking with teachers, and I have pretty much no friends here (not for lack of trying). I’ve been…[Read more]

    • I’m sure you will find the right support and help that will benefit you @suiei, whether that be medication, counselling or therapy, you are a wonderful person who deserves happiness in life, surround yourself with the things that bring you hope and know things will be OK, you have so much strength and courage inside of you, keep going, believe in…[Read more]

    • @suiei
      Today its college, tomorrow its workplace. Can’t keep medicating yourself forever.
      If its really THAT BIG of an issue, then why not take a semester break. And dedicate it to practicing your social skills. And learn from the experiences of socially confident and popular people, and copy them for 6 months. I can understand a part of you…[Read more]

    My parents want me to go back to work over winter break at my last job (retail). I don’t want to work at my last job because I got yelled at there all the time for things that I wasn’t informed about, things I did wrong because I wasn’t trained properly, and also got harassed by coworkers because of my weight. Tell my parents these things, and…[Read more]

    • You shouldn’t have to work in a place where people are mean to you @suiei, I’m sure you will find a job that you enjoy and your co-workers will treat you with respect and kindness, I would talk to your parents, tell them that you will find something that makes you comfortable, happy and valued, don’t give up, you can do it, I’m always here if…[Read more]

    Finals week never fails in driving me insane. Also for some reason, a few months ago I signed up to work a volunteer shift next week, but now I suddenly can’t, and I’m feeling super guilty about it….I still need to email the people in charge of that and let them know I can’t make it.

    • I would try to talk to them about it @suiei, let them know that you have other plans, I’m sure they will understand, hope things go well, I’m always here if you ever need to chat about anything, message me anytime, my inbox is always open, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

I just told him what I honestly thought, in a calm manner, and he seemed to understand, but told me that I should ask for help if I run into problems like that in the future.

    I don’t want to talk to my grandma, but I feel really guilty not talking to her. I don’t dislike her, but she always passes on whatever I tell her to my parents, and that’s never fun.

    • I would try to talk to your Grandma @suiei, I’m sure she just wants the best for you and she is looking out for you, tell her that there are some things you think should be kept private, be honest with her, hope everything goes well, I’m always here if you need to chat, message me anytime if you want, my inbox is always open, stay strong, you…[Read more]

    • Then don’t tell her anything personal, just have random conversations with her. That way you can still talk to her and don’t have to go through your grandma telling stuff to your parents

    • talk to her.

    • don’t organize, just relax, and let him talk and say his thing, the professor should let you talk when he’s done and he is not allowed to disturb while you’re telling your thing. also, if he does, and he won’t let you talk, it means that the prof is simply a douchebag. and don’t choke up, i know how it feels like, that’s when you’ve…[Read more]

    Writing emails is really nervewracking for me, and I just got an offer to work on a project that would really mean a lot to me but…I don’t know how to respond to it because I don’t want to fuck it up. I’ve already tried to write it 5 or 6 times now, and I don’t know what to do because nothing I write sounds good enough.

    Mood : Afraid
    • I would write down what you are going to put in the email before you send it @suiei, I would make sure you get all the wording right and that it looks professional enough, I’m sure you will be OK, good luck with everything, I’m always here if you need to talk, message me anytime if you want, my inbox is always open, stay strong, you are never…[Read more]

    Ugh I’m so frustrated with my mom right now. I wanted to use her sewing machine to sew something but she wouldn’t let me because it apparently ”takes years of practice”. Like she didn’t say that I can’t use it because I’d hurt myself or brake the machine, but just that I can’t because it would be too hard for me. What the fuck??

    Mood : Frustrated
    • I would try to talk to her about it @suiei, tell her that you can cope with using the machine and that you will be OK with it, I hope things go well for you, I’m always here if you need to talk :) (hugs)
