    I never know where to post what I want to share - too many groups and I'm unsure whether I'd be or not off topic.

    October is Tough

    #Anxiety just does not seem to go away for me lately. I have been feeling very struck-out. There are a lot of things going on for me this month and I somewhat feel #overwhelmed with a bunch of #Stress .

    Tomorrow I go back to work after my weekend off, and it doesn't entirely feel good. I had left #Work early on Sunday and therefore had about 3 days off. But I spent most of it being #Upset and #depressed because of the personal nonsense going on in my life.

    I know we all have issues.. and life sucks sometimes. I know we all pull through it because we are #Stronger than we know. With #Bipolar being at my mind all the time and random running #Thoughts , I cannot seem to really pin myself down. I hate it when I feel alone even when I am not alone. It would be nice to find more people around me who can #understand me.

    😭😭😭😭😭😭😭I can't stop crying!!!😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    I came out to my mom's boyfriend (#Terrifying ) as #nonbinary , it didn't go well. He told me to pick a gender, that I'm just being complicated, that I want attention. NONE OF THIS IS TRUE!! I just want to be me. That's it. Why is that so hard for people to #understand ?! I don't understand it. But I do know that now...all I want to do is sleep all day, #cut 'til there's no skin left and disappear.😭😭😭

    Mental Disorder- Do you ever want to scream? #MentalHealth

    Have you ever had so much anxiety or anger pent up inside you that the only thing that you can think to do to release it is is scream. Because that is how I feel. I have no idea how to get rid of it. All I want to do is cry and shout and feel the hurt inside me. BUT, I know that, that is not acceptable. Why? Why is not acceptable to release how you feel?? Why is it not okay to feel hurt? To feel sadness? To feel pain?? Because society deems it to be wrong. They see it as weakness. So we are all stuck in this middle ground of feeling hurt but trying to be strong. But all it is really doing is breaking us slowly. We need to be allowed to show how we feel without being called weak, negative or attention seekers. We should be allowed to feel how we feel without others judgement. And this is why, I believe, that mental illness is still such a taboo subject for people. Because they dont want to believe or accept something they cannot see, control or understand. It is time we change that. It is time that we make people understand. Who are the ones to say that we aren't the normal ones?? Perhaps we are the ones to see the world as it truly is. No-one should be telling us what we feel is wrong or right. Who are they to decide?! We are the ones in control of our own fate. So long as you are happy why should it matter?? And that is why I feel so anxious. Because I dont feel I am living up to other peoples standards or not acting in a certain way that society deems acceptable. Maybe, just maybe. If everyone accepted everyone as they are we wouldn't have so many societal issues.

    Struggling, anxious and stressed #help

    Hi all. I am Natalie and 29 years old. I’m new to the group. I’ve been told by two doctors that I’m autistic/Asperger’s at a young age. I’ve been struggling with quarantine and dealing with a lot of hostility in my family. I have neurotypical friends, who don’t understand. Anyone else struggling? #Autism #Friends #understand

    When a loved one ‘doesn’t get’ my struggle...

    My response ‘You don’t have to #understand it, just please #Believe me.’ #ChronicIllness #MultipleSclerosis #Fibromyalgia

    To be or not to be - Support System

    I need a #Support system because things get really bad for me and I tend to feel #unsafe so I reached out to 3 people. One responded almost immediately willing to help. The other wants more info. The other hasn’t said yea or nay. My thing is, you know I dealing with depression why can’t you just give a yes or no? Even if they don’t #understand #Depression I’ve offered to get info for them. The delay concerns me.

    I feel alone in this. I wish I could afford my own personal therapist that works with just me and no one else. I need the help and support. It’s 4:43am and I’ve been up for an hour. It’s too early to be dealing with these feelings!

    Three things I'm grateful for...

    1) My #truefriends ; who do everything they can to #understand what I'm faced with and continue to be #Accepting and #supportive .

    2) Having my own #home , where I #feelsafe ; it's warm, calm and #comfortable , I can receive my daily #HomeCare with confidence, and live in the catchment area for an awesome #carecompany . All the standard services are reliable, there's decent internet here and my abusers have nooo idea where I am!

    3) That I'm still able to be #creative from time to time; even with #multiplechronicillnesses that leave me mostly #housebound #Disabled , it gives me something to look forward to, knowing that as long as I continue to listen to my body, I can do what I enjoy most when I'm able to.
