I was just getting better, I was close to forget about the thing that bothered me and I was ready to move on but now something else came to bother me and it will probably keep on bothering me for a while too :(

Ten years ago, I had a family, a new born baby. My father has his retrospective exhibition. Now, my dad is dead. My brother a sociopath who steals from the family. I sacrificed my marriage to take care of my mum but she blames me for everything . My wife has left me. my daughter is starting to withdraw from me. . All my friends have gone. Have their own families with kids. I still haven't got a job. Staying alone in this hostel. No friends. No family. No one.

torn between staying in the rules of what society defines as being “good”, and my old habits and desire of being “bad”. i feel like the time of being in between is almost up for me. i’m not even sure of what i want anymore. i feel like i’m losing myself.

I've been struggling for a long time now, to the point that nightmares and flashbacks and everything have just become normal. Like I'm used to it. But about a few hours ago it just hit me that my life is really such a mess right now and I've been in such a depression since... :(

I developed over time heart palpitations, arrythmia, stomach pain, nausea and loss of appetite to the point I have to force myself to eat so I wouldn't trigger my nausea and start vomiting. Yesterday, I was with my friend. All of a sudden, I was having a panic attack after a long period. I wanted to run without paying my bill. She was the first person I told about my anxiety and she was so understanding that she confirmed she had had panic attack before. It felt much better.

I need somewhere to say this, because I feel like I’m going to explode if I don’t get it out: I don’t feel like I have a home. Where you call ‘home’ I feel has more to do with the people, but I look at the house I live in with my parents, and it doesn’t feel like home. I’m always so scared of saying the wrong thing, or walking out of my room when they’re drinking... I don’t feel comfortable in my own home. And it’s SO exhausting.

I’m scared to admit that their is something wrong with me. My heart feels like it’s constantly swallowed and my chest has a cold burning. I don’t want to tell anybody. But I want somebody to notice that i’m not okay. That it’s all an act...

People now at days complain about the stupidest things and think what littlest thing they go through is the hardest thing they have to ever go through in life but they do not know how hard life is for my life was a actual living hell for over almost my whole entire childhood until the last 2 yrs when I turned 18.I have been through the worst in a ton of ways a human could ever go through in surpass an entire lifetime.

I wrote how I felt about my sister's relationship and how she moved out still makes me feel even though it has been 2 yrs now.It helped me get out my emotions and realize what I should try to start doing since her boyfriend and her living with him farther away is not going to change anytime soon for a long time.

After so many nights of stress, I finally finished my thesis. I literally believed I couldn't do it, but I did. Now it is a new chapter.

I’ve stayed in a psychiatric hospital four times and it is both the weirdest and calming experience I’ve had. It was like life had stopped for me so I could catch up but when I got out I was behind again. It’s a good temporary solution. What’s your experience?

I’m worried that I’m not going to enjoy Christmas this year because last year, bad things happened between December and March and I have a bad feeling that I’m going to start worrying about it again when it’s all in the past and I should just let go of it and let go of all the stress. Does anyone have any helpful tips of how I can let go of the past and move on please? It would really ruin Christmas for me as well if I was worrying about things all throughout December. 😓🍀
