    Introverts

    I’m an introvert. I rather send and receive texts messages then answering the phone I will end the call literally while it rings. My friend who keeps calling doesn’t understand this. How do I explain to her I only feel comfortable texting? I do answer when my son or mom calls. I do answer when my psychiatrist calls and primary dr. Yes I was diagnosed with #SocialAnxietyDisorder . I can express myself and open up more just like I’m doing now. #MajorDepressiveDisorder #PTSD #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorde #SexualAbuse

    Is this manipulative or am I thinking too much?

    I am in hospital after overdosing on my psychiatric medicines. It was because of a few events that upsets me, and I got triggered after I try to seek console from my mother and she reply coldly that she cannot do anything to help me. I think she was upset with me because I bring up a mistake that she made but she insist that she didn’t do anything wrong. Usually she would visit me at the hospital. Today my father and younger sister are all free from work, my mother is a housewife. But they went out together and even dine at a restaurant. They posted photos of themselves in the family WhatsApp group. They did not visit me or even give me a text. Yes we live together and they are all aware I’m in hospital. I have a feeling my mother put them up to it because my father and younger sister always listens to her. Is this manipulation? Or am I overthinking?

    I try to ignore it but I still cried. Thoughts of harming myself comes to my mind because I’m upset. They always come to me when they need help. I was also always generous in spending money on them.

    Is kinship really such fragile and meaningless?

    New to posting

    Hi I am Tiffany- I am new to posting, I definitely enjoy reading and replying to posts. I live with Depression, social anxiety disorder, disordered eating, and stimulant addiction. My social anxiety causes isolation....I am single and my kids are grown...I live alone. I am looking for suggestions to help with the loneliness...some connection, it sucks and just makes the depression worse sometimes. Maybe just posting will help? I haven't navigated the mighty app too much so any suggestions would be great, thank you!

    ASD vs INFP

    Why ASD?
    Could it be I’m just an INFP + Pisces?
    Plus some social anxieties?

    Well, sorry if I sound stupid/arrogant to you… I just don’t feel liberated with the ASD label… This is so worrying!

    Low self-esteem or real inadequacy?

    Last night I called a helpline to talk, because I was crying too much. I told her I feel that I am born inadequate to live in this world. She immediately rephrased it as “low self-esteem”. When I was a small child, I had Asthma and some heart problem, and always need to be admitted in the hospital. I’m not sure what it is called, but in layman term, the doctor said there’s a hole in my heart, and my heartbeat sound different from the normal people. And suddenly I grew up, and I don’t need to go to hospital anymore, I’m not sure if it was cured or not. But I feel that it was a hint, a hint that I am not born suitable for this world. I don’t want to go through all the ‘sufferings’ that people say are ‘part of life’. If life is as such, then I don’t want life all together, there’s no point. I’m just thinking, how do you differentiate low self-esteem and real inadequacy? What if I’m really inadequate for life?
