Helo darkness my old friend

Life has been so dark lately, and I can’t seem to find a way out. I am trying to focus on my work, going to the gym, running, it just doesn’t seem to be enough to get me out of here, my house is as much of a mess as my head. I’m tired of this chaos and really want it to be over, I want a clean slate , I though I was goi to get one this year, but I’m really struggling with my anxiety. I have been avoiding people because I just don’t think that I have any space for anyone’s issues, I’m also scared of the “Are you okay?” question because I know that’s going to break me down. I can’t seem to be able to quiet my thought, sleeping is a task without getting high, and yet the alcohol makes me feel even worse the next morning .I’m here because I’m just looking to vent without consequences #scared #anxious

Somatic OCD Breathing symptoms

I don’t have OCD personally but I have Anxiety GAD and I came across this while trying to find why I’m super anxious than normal and obsessed with my breath. I will feel so dump and weak like I can’t control it and it’s taking over my day and making me feel miserable like I can’t take a deep breath in and then I panic and it cycles and I’m constantly monitoring my breath where it doesn’t go automatic like it should :( please help sometimes even after meditation or deep breathing I still don’t feel good. #Anxiety #OCD #help #panic #AnxietyAttacks #PanicAttacks #anxious #sad #Upset #miserable #frustrated #dumb

Dating with bipolar, trichotillomania and c-ptsd

I've been talking to a guy for a while know, and we're meeting up this weekend. He's started asking questions about why I'm on #Disability , what my #Bipolar (the only thing I've been open about yet) affects me and would affect us if we ended up dating. How and when do I open up about all the other stuff? I don't wanna #Trauma dump on him, but some of it really needs to be told so he can understand why I am the way I am. It's not something I'll be able to, or want to, hide. My #Trichotillomania gets bad when I'm #depressed , #anxious or get #triggered . Since I've been in a #depressive episode for a really long time now and struggle a lot with #SuicidalIdeation and thoughts about #Selfharm it's important he knows some stuff. I've been in #SelfharmRecovery for almost a year and a half and my scars are bad and ugly. I know he'll ask questions, and I have no clue how to open up to him as I barely know the guy.. Do you guys have some tips?

Can't sleep

What are your tips for sleeping? I'm too warm & craving nicotine which doesn't help. I'm restless, overthinking, can't get thru to helpline. Doesn't help I've got a meetup tomorrow I might not go to. #anxious #Sleep


I feel a bit out of control

Today, yesterday and days before them I've gradually, but steadily gone down hill. I seem to have no filter on my thoughts as they come straight through to my out loud spoken words. I'm better off left alone to do my job then having him doddling around me doing nothing! I don't even want to go back but im as good as my word and I'd never let them down just cause I feel #depressed or #anxious . It just takes one question or the slightest hint of criticism from him sets me off and it's on. Thank God I at least have my days here by myself. He doesn't arrive till after 6pm. This attitude sticks with me and I'm short with anyone who talks to me. It just doesn't stop. This angry voice inside of me. I'm not this way . Can anyone relate?


#anxious about answers!

Finally got a long awaited brain MRI and now the waiting game begins. I meet with my #neurologist at the end of the month.

What I have the most #Anxiety about, is not even knowing what I am hoping for. Outside of some sort of definitive idea of what I am dealing with and possible/probable treatments and solutions.

But I have just started thinking about worst case scenarios, and what if I get called sooner than expected because it's life threatening or something.

Just looking for others who have been in this limbo. #CheckInWithMe #Migraine #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #Headache #ChronicPain
