    hate self diagnosing but for so long I've been dealing with feeling irritable, can't sit still, anxious, worrying, jitterness, high and low...kinda like unstable moods, paranoid. It's kinda embarrassing to talk to family and friends about this and I hate for a Dr to label me. I tried talking to a pyschatrist and he flat out told me I looked fine. So has anyone dealt with this before? I'm scared I'm losing my sanity. I also pysch myself out thinking what if I'm seeing things or start to because I'm terrified of schizophrenia.

  • Can a person who commits suicide possibly be saved?

    I’m actually referring to myself. I haven’t attempted anything but for the past few days, I’ve thought about it. I’ve had history of past attempts.

    I’m actually referring to myself. I haven’t attempted anything but for the past few days, I’ve thought about it. I’ve had history of past attempts. Since I’ve reached puberty, I’ve had depression. Depression runs in my family. I had an uncle of who I was named after who took his own life. Recently, I’ve been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. Sometimes I do hear things that aren’t really there. I get extremely irritated, irritable and feel as though the whole world is against me. I’ve had some past trauma in my life. Bullying and death threats. My ex-stepfather tried to but he didn’t, then as I got into my late teens and entered into my twenties, I’d been through abuse, physical and sexual. Let me just get to the point. No one seems to understand me at all. I do not want to turn to my family nor my friends about this. Each day, my depression escalated into something darker and I keep feeling like there’s some dark entity that is preying on my spirit as I feed into the depression, I could be wrong. It’s making me sick physically, I can’t even function well. I even tried speaking with local Pastors around my area about my depression, asking them to pray for me and they seemed to not care about my welfare at all. They were acting arrogant and uppity. What the hell should I do? I am scared of myself and my safety and no one in this life seems to care but me.

  • Why do people think it's okay to ignore me?

    It's plain rude! You shouldn't ignore anyone. I never ignore anyone unless I can't hear them. I've only just woken up, if I were to attempt to walk down the stairs I'd probably slip and fall, I wan't to avoid unnecessary pain. I can't avoid pain when I'm shouting for someone, at... show more

I've only just woken up, if I were to attempt to walk down the stairs I'd probably slip and fall, I wan't to avoid unnecessary pain. I can't avoid pain when I'm shouting for someone, at first I thought she didn't hear me so I had to shout louder, now my throat is sore. All she needed to do was shout back once. That's all. Just once. I feel so disrespected, she knows I hate being ignored. Bloody b*tch.

  • Is this a traumatic event?

    When I was in school last year, somebody brought a weapon to school. He shoved a teacher in a closet and one of the kids in the class got away and ran into our classroom screaming about it.

    When I was in school last year, somebody brought a weapon to school. He shoved a teacher in a closet and one of the kids in the class got away and ran into our classroom screaming about it. We immediately went into lock down while the cops were called. We were in lockdown for about thirty minutes and we could hear the police standoff the whole time. It really bothered me and I find it gives me anxiety even now. It might be getting worse. Was this a traumatic event or am I overreacting?

    I am 24yo, a single mom, graduated college last year. To make a long story short, these last few years have been really hard for me. I feel like my mental health is declining. In 2015 I had a close friend that was murdered and then shortly after another close friend committed suicide. Almost a year later, I was celebrating a break up and decided to go out to a club for the first time with a friend i met in college. This night ended in me getting date raped by two medical students at a nearby college. A few months later , my daughters dad and I (we were not together) got in an argument over money and he punched me dead in my face. I didn't know what to do. I couldn't defend myself because i was scared he would get even more aggressive. I also had my daughter in another arm. I should have called the police, but i don't even know what I was thinking. I was just crying. Some might say " Well you should have done a better job picking a father for your daughter." But what most people don't understand is that if you grew up in a dysfunctional family , the cycle usually repeats itself. I didn't know that at the time so I didn't know the signs that someone is mentally unstable and abusive. I've found myself extremely depressed currently and in the past year and a half. I can barely keep a job. This is so unlike me and I know I need help, but I have no insurance. Are there any free services that provide mental support and free diagnosis ?

    I know this is probably not the place to ask such a question or put my situation out there but I am out of options. I am going through a really tough time at my moms place in nyc. I am 21 female who is employed, a freshman at college and have no children. My situation is very scary I am severely depressed and i have been having suicidal thoughts. I am so overwhelmed and life is taking a toll on me. At my moms place there is absolutely no room for me here (over-crowded apartment) I feel as if I am mentally abused here also, being here has me at my worst, I cannot take it anymore. I am constantly talked down upon and it’s so stressful to be here. I don’t have a good relationship with my family and I don’t have much friends, there is no one I can speak to. I am messing up at work and school because I feel so down and have nomore hope. My job doesn’t pay me enough so I can be able to quickly move on to my own place. I’m so scared of going to a nyc shelter for women because Ive heard scary stories about how bad it can be. My question here really is what should I honestly do on my behalf? It’s so much to explain I tried to leave it as brief as possible. I feel keeping quiet and not speaking to anyone is causing me more damage. I want professional help
