Hi guys! I hope all of you are having a good week.
I think my depression is coming back. This week has been tough. The urge to self-harm came back after months of feeling fine. However, I didn't, I figured I should share that with someone since no one in my real life really knows anything about it.
Happy Valentine's Day. Remember, in other cultures it's a day to celebrate love, all kinds of love. That includes friendships, family, even pet love. <3 Even strangers on the internet love.
Thanks for sharing that with us. We hope that you're able to reach out to someone in your life soon. You might be surprised by the support that you find. If you're not ready for that, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your story. We hope that today is a good one for you!
Hey, TWLOHA. Thank you for everything you do. Your story and your message saved my life a few years ago and keeps me going today. Dealing with depression and anxiety is hard, but this organization gives me hope.
So i thought I would join this chat i really hate this day it really gets me down i was meant to be doing something with my chrush but she made plans with someone else now i just wanna crawl in bed and hide
im starting to doubt my faith and i fear that i'll begin to lose it entirely, is there anything i can do to regain the love for god that i used to have?
It can be hard to believe in something if you feel like that very thing has forgotten you. What always works for me, is to remember that God has a bigger and better plan for your life than what you have for yourself. Sometimes things happen (or don't happen) that are hurtful and don't make sense and make it easy to turn against Him. Remember that while not everything that happens is the result of our own or other's free will, God is working on creating your story into something beautiful, it just might not always make sense in certain moments.
Chris isn't here tonight, but I'll pass your message along to him. We're so glad you had the chance to connect with him at Warped. Congratulations on your 10 months, 1 week, and 4 days. Every day is such an important milestone- thanks for sharing that with us.
thanks for answering back:) it means tons and thanks for everything that you do!
So, I relapsed a few weeks ago, and I haven't told my mom. I've told my guidance counselor but thats all. My mom took me out of therapy, and I was doing really good. I was 7 months clean. I would have been a year by Warped. And I just don't know how to go up to my mom and be like, I failed. I relapsed. I messed up. I need to go back. I need help. I need to talk. I need to talk.
I just don't know how.
think of it this way:
wouldn't you rather tell your mom now instead of waiting?
she's your mother, she loves you unconditionally and wants you to be happy, healthy, and safe.
