    Help me naming an emotion

    I need your help to name an emotion.

    Shame is defined when we feel something is shameful about us.

    Regret is defined when we feel regretful of doing something in the past.

    What is the emotion when we feel shame about FOR EXAMPLE having chronic illness? By that, I do not mean that, er feel something is bad about us; but we feel such a shame I have this in my life whereas others don't have.

    What is name of this emotion?

    Negative thinking in Addiction is ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO NOT FALL INTO. I have asked myself and colleagues who are in Recovery, ( ALL STAGES) have did any of you wake one day and SAY , TODAY IS THE DAY I BECOME AN ADDICT? Was it the role that your family inadvertently had a part in the decision to make sure that YOU WERE THE SCAPEGOAT FOR THE MISERY IN THE FAMILY? But really it was US who were the STRONGEST PEOPLE IN THE FAMILY, mentally.

    I wish you never met me

    A poem I wrote a while ago with a photo I took that day. I met a girl in USA and was an awful person to her and now I regret everything and upset we never talk but did so much damage to her. How many have felt like this? #Poem #IMissYou #longdistance #Love #regret #Depression #BPD #MensHealth #MensMentalHealth


    Struggling. #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #IntrusiveThoughts #regret #struggling

    Hey, everyone. I recently joined and I am also going through alot of regret; as well as many other things at the moment, such as intrusive thoughts that are from my OCD. If anyone has some advice that would be great.


    Regretting Surviving a Suicide Attempt?

    So I lost two friends to suicide in the same week in September 2018 , when I was 17. I've had suicidal thoughts of some sort since I was 13, mainly just wondering how people would react and if they'd miss me. On September 24, 2019, I actually made a suicide attempt. I'm doing better now, but I still struggle to a pretty severe extent. One of my biggest regrets is not doing more to ensure my death. The EMT's told me that if I had done one additional thing, I wouldn't have made it. While I'm somewhat happy, adore my amazing hubby, and we are excitedly trying for a baby, I still can't get it out of my head that it would have all been better if I had done more and succeeded. Can anyone relate? How do you get out of this mindset? #OurSideOfSuicide #SuicideSurvivor #regret #idontwanttofeellikethisanymore


    Made the mistake of looking at FB today. #Depression #BipolarDepression #MajorDepressionDisorder #MoodDisorder

    I made the mistake of looking at Facebook today—which I never do because it depresses me. Saw lots of happy photos of my friends that I never see or talk to because, well, my #Depression . Now I’m really struggling. Downward spiral. #tears . #Loneliness . #regret . #Shame . #self -loathing. More shame. It hurts.


    Have you ever done something because why not? #whynot #Inspiration #regret #MentalHealth

    (Grace, She/Her)

    “Why Not?” can be a strong motivator, for good or for bad. Has there been anything in your life that you’ve done, whether it was amazing or regretful, just because?

    I’ll start.

    Other than randomly beginning to learn Spanish in the last week, we think we figured out how to be the kind of Mental Health advocate we want to be. And it started with Why Not?

    Why not advocate? But how? We love gathering information for people. Why not gather mental health information? Why not curate a list of resources (local and online) for those who ask us about it? Why not reach out to some of our friends who have had mental health struggles and see what resources helped them? Why not take action?

    Why Not?

    Stuck #Depression #Anxiety #regret #Loneliness #Hatemyjob

    I’ve spent 13 years in a career that has become increasingly draining. It’s never been an easy job, but it just keeps getting worse. Demands increase; pay doesn’t. People in my line are expected to work miracles, and even when we come very close to doing so, the praise is either brief of nonexistent. Criticism is rampant. Everything is our fault.,We give and give, and there’s never an “off-the-clock” moment. We’re always expected to be “on.”

    Clearly I’m unhappy with my job choice. The thing is, I’m not dumb. I could probably do something different. But I don’t have the funds to go back to school. I am afraid to start over. I’m afraid of taking a risk. I have a family, bills, and starting over again at 38 makes me feel like I’ll never get to retirement. I’ve never worked in another line of work, and the older I get, the less likely it is that I’d be hired to do anything else. I never expected to HATE my job this much.

    I was 7 years old when I nearly died. Since then, I am alive thanks to medical and technological advancements. I am lucky. And I should be doing more with this life I’ve been given. I should be traveling, living where and how I want to live. I should have friends and do the things I love—if I can remember what those things are.

    I feel stuck. I feel alone. I have regrets. I need courage.

    Thought for the day #Depression #Anxiety

    My doctor posted this on his website. I thought it was cool. I am reminded that at the end of our life it is not the things we did that we will regret but what we didn’t do.
