    Why are these stupid fleas still here?? Our cat has a flea collar on and it’s been 50-60 degrees. It’s cold on my room, and the one or two 70 degree days we’ve had in fall (that or because of the rain, a gnat comes out only in my room! Summer already sucked because of these stupid pests and it seriously drove me mad, and I just want them gone already! I’ve literally sprayed and have light traps and everything!

    The worst part is that it’s just in my room, no one elses. Our cat barely has gone in my room, not even for that long. She hasn’t been in there since a month ago..

    And we got her in 2019! I thought that fleas would’ve stopped appearing after the first infestation but apparently not! I don’t know what to do. Summer already drove me crazy and mad and so angry. I’m so sick of this, I just want it to stop already… /vneg

    Any advice?

    Sometimes… | TW slightly suicidal, mentions of guns, one swear #venting

    Sometimes.. this house makes me want to die. I just want to be away from it already. Even if it’s just my older sister disagreeing with my decisions regarding garbage bags… I’m only throwing the garbage out often to keep flies and gnats away. I’m only tying them to keep them away. And for my mental health. To this freaking day, she still has a problem with it, and it’s very annoying, and honestly - it hurts 😕

    I’m so sick of being anxious over hearing her kids - um - “teasing” - and annoying each other.

    Not to mention the fact that because of my mother’s anxiety about the Illinois bonding law (when in reality, me and my dad knew that it wasn’t going to be as bad as it seemed - psa: please do your own research and don’t listen to others), she may or may not get the liscence to get a gun a few months from now. She already took the legal classes. She may not even get the gun in the first place, but it still feels very icky and uncomfortable and I don’t want my friends or partners (plural) being here dealing with that shit.

    Things would be so much better if we weren’t living here right now.

    I just want to be out of here already… it’s been three freaking years since we’ve planned to move out… but I hope it’ll be faster, especially after Dad heard about what Mom was doing. He doesn’t feel safe with me regarding her decision, and neither do I.

    I need help

    I have bipolar affective disorder. I have been on medication for 8 years. But I'm not happy. I am worried about my future and many debts from the manic phase of the illness. I am asking for prayers. Thanks for every thought and prayer and space to talk. Thank you also for your experience, you are all everyday heroes. Thanks and I keep my fingers crossed for you, may you be successful and happy. #Bipolar #helpme #godisgoodallthetime

    How do you calm a manic episode?

    Last night I stayed up until 3 in the morning. I felt wired. Like I couldn’t stop. I tried to focus on things but I got bored easily. The internet hasn’t been of much help. I also feel that it’s interfering with the other disorders I have because I’ve been very agitated lately. What can I do? I’ve tried calming sounds, herbal teas and just plain trying to do nothing. Am I fighting it? What do you suggest?

    How do you cope ahead with hard situations?

    In therapy I am learning coping skills but I wanted to ask the community if you know of any additional ones.

    Forgetting meds

    Hello as many of you know, I have bipolar type two disorder and PTSD. I gave the hardest time remembering to take my meds and if I do remember it’s hard for me to remember the exact same time each day. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Also, I just want to say that I am SO thankful for this community of support. We are the STRONG ones guys. Let’s continue to encourage each other. “This is a marathon and not a sprint!”

    Sudden urge to bang head against wall?

    Without going into too much (right now) the last 7-8 months have been extremely bad for my depression and anxiety. I am in the middle of very heavy grief due to losing my mother a little over a month ago….all of that aside, my depression and anxiety is at an all time high and I find it difficult to function. Period. All I want to do is sleep and eat (entirely too much and even when I’m full). I can’t work. One week I did not leave the house for 7 days. I am trying medications and everything…without making all of this too long…
    Today after a stir up of anger/anxiety/sadness I suddenly had the urge to slam my head against a wall. I felt like I almost HAD to. So I banged my head quickly several times on a door. Not super hard, but I suppose hard enough. Then I paced and slammed my fist several times into the wall. (Wood paneling)…and than punched my fist into the top of the washing machine as it was closed.
    This has never happened to me before. Where I felt such a need to physically do something like that before. I have someone else in the house so I couldn’t scream at the top of my lungs like I wanted to. But has anyone else ever felt these urges? Did it continue? What did you do to help this? I’m not sure how or what to think right now.. #Depression #Anxiety #Grief #Selfharm #banghead #helpme

    Family

    My mom and my grandma got into a big fight while trying to plant the family garden. This unfortunately is not unusual because even though my mom is the oldest my uncle is the favorite golden child. My mom swears she's done with my grandma but eventually ends up helping her our or putting up with stuff again.
    And I always land somewhere in the middle of them. Trying to comfort both but also being frustrated by both. I don't know what to do anymore. Any advice?

    How do I know if I need to check myself in to the hospital?

    I’m eighteen and would have to explain to my parents that I’m not okay. Every time I tell them they say it’s my fault and I’m not trying hard enough to get better. I have so many physical issues and the psychological ones hit me like a freight train. I’m just not functioning and I don’t know what to do
