I feel frustrated

A couple of weeks ago, my mom and sister made the executive decision to bring a new cat into our home. I was asked how I felt about it and I said that I didn't want it because I was already feeling overwhelmed with the pets we already had. I thought that they actually listened to what I said, but later the next day I learned that we were officially getting the new cat. I was devastated. I felt that my feelings were brushed off and ignored. They told me that everything was going to be okay, but to me that wasn't the point. It was more of the fact that they asked me, the person who is home 24/7 with the pets, how I felt. And then they completely disregard it. This is not the first time this has happened and I feel like no one actually cares about how I feel.

How I felt the whole week :(

I don't even know how to describe my week. I went through something that has always been a problem for me. I just recently started college and it's definitely something I have to get used to. I have struggled my whole life to feel like I belong somewhere and I thought coming to college would do that for me, but I guess not. I have not found my place anywhere yet. Dealing with drama here already and haven't even been here 3 months yet. I always overthink situations and it makes me assume or even come up with scenarios in my own head that sometimes aren't even relevant and would never even happen. I feel like I don't have control over half of the thoughts in my head.

Confiding and no response

It may be my fault for unloading my issues through text, I wanted some advice and wanted to confide in my friends. I was left on read and it has honestly hurt me. Sometimes no response, to me means that there's something wrong with what I said or I went about it wrong. I just feel stupid and it makes me not want to vent or confide in anyone ever again. I guess I'll just go back to holding shit in. #Depression #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Sadness #silenced #Friendship


How can you find reliable peer support when you verbally process?

After someone really close to me recently told me that they feel they cannot support me (despite them doing so for the past 5 years and they have helped me the most - and I do the same for them) because everything they do or say "turns to dust", and they said harsh and judgemental things, I am feeling at a loss for supports who understand how I process.

Everyone in my life struggles with mental health/and or physical health issues. I know that having a large support network is key, along with having people that are "doers, listeners, distractors". I have a therapist, but my sessions are almost up. I need someone who doesnt mind checking in with me every day and who has empathy and compassion. I have had enough tough love, people dismissing or demeaning me, ableist attitudes and responses. Im working through intense trauma, and finally need to focus on me. But my resources have dried up and I'm hurting, frustrated, feel silenced, and very alone. #Need support #needhelp #emotionaltrauma #emotional #ExhaustedAlways #Recoveryinprogress #struggling #seekingsupport #MentalHealth #FeelingAlone #Processfeelings #proccessingtakestime #processdifferently #needingvalidation #silenced
