    I initially joined the mighty with the intent to connect with people that understood my struggles as I've been reading articles for yrs I relate to, but since being here Ive become skeptical of how helpful it is for me personally. I want to like it. I just don't know.

    I was a workaholic. I was putting it over 60 hrs a week some weeks. I used work as a way to distract my mind. Then my mind couldn't handle it anymore. The traumas I endured before I could even form sentences have begun creeping through the cracks like sludge. I can't go to work. The lights, the noise, the crowd each sends off alarms in my mind. I look at my hands searching for a hint of realness. There is none.
    I feel my mouth move, there are words but I don't know what they are. I'm reminded of how there was a time I only babbled, a time before words were tangible, when I was young. My friend laughs, I must have said something funny but it was lost to my own ears. I can't understand him, I feel sick to my stomach, my own language lost to my mind. My muscles twitch subtly, a reminder of my daily medication -a side effect of trying to heal.
    My job began to slip away from me - now I'm not even there. I'm home, stretched out on my office futon waiting for phone calls. Desperate the heal, so unsure of what to do. I don't know what to do. I meditate, I do yoga, it helps in the moment and when I leave my room I settle back into dissociation - a default setting 15 years strong.
    I search online for online support, zoom meetings, groups, forums, chat rooms, therapists - I can't do this alone. I'm in over my head. My girlfriend watched my struggles with love, and promise that it's okay that I struggle. But to myself I feel like a failure. I can't work, what good am #Depression #Work #Anxiety #dissociativedisorders #Depersonalization

    Son up all night #notsleeping #Unsure #helpless

    My 21 year old son is diagnosed with MDD. He’s left college and is at home. I’m glad he’s here and needs time to recover. He’s seeing a therapist. He spends all of his time on the phone or computer gaming. He’s up until 3 or 4 am. He says this is his only outlet. I’m afraid he isn’t putting in the work to help his recovery but using technology to mask his issues. And I’m afraid his sleep habits aren’t helping him either. I don’t want to make his feel bad or shamed. How do I help? What can I do or say? Feeling so helpless and a little hopeless

    Unsure what it might be

    So when I get stressed or excited,overwhelmed some emotions I have these moments where if I don't do something like for example make a noise or move my hands in some way it feels almost like a anxiety attack but I no its not and I just have to move in some way like hit something make a noise normally its hit my shoulder and make a noise for a bit and then I calm down but im unsure what it might be any ideas? #Unsure #Undiagnosed

    Needing to hold back...

    Apparently, my boyfriend "deals" with me, and it's stressful for him. His version of his terrible dealings with me consist of me texting him, while he's out running errands...I texted him twice...and not listening to him to do something...so he felt unappreciated because I had my own idea.
    He made me feel like I should bow down to him for being able "to deal" with me.
    That was yesterday, today I feel like I'm walking on egg shells around him...I am slowly losing myself...feeling like the old me I fought so hard to stay away from....she's returning. Time to take a hard look in the mirror and find myself once again...a battle I am all to familiar with.

    I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place, I've lost my job (I'd been furloughed during covid but now lost it completely) however I live with parents who are very high risk. Since March we haven't left the house. Because I was furloughed I still had an income but now I don't.
    I'm so unsure what to do, it's so risky if I get a job I could bring something into the house but if I don't we don't know how long we are going to be in this situation for.
    I can't make any life plans and it is freaking me out big time 😞
