But I don't ever go out with friends. I never socialise. I can't seem to keep friends. I always end up upsetting them, but I don't know why. I even go to the cinema alone. I went to the cinema on my birthday alone because my 'friends' cancelled on me. I want to start trying to mix with people but I have no idea how to. I just get shy around people and quiet and I can see they are looking at me like, 'why are you here? or are you simple?' Please help. I feel so lonely some times.

  • How does depression make you feel? can somebody (preferably somebody who experienced it or experience it) give me a close insight?

    Best answer: For me it’s just the feeling of hopelessness. You see no purpose in life, no light at the end of the tunnel. You’re trying to swim but you’re just being dragged to the bottom of the ocean. There’s this sort of heaviness on you, almost crushing you, making you only feel a deep sadness. You have little to no... show more
    Best answer: For me it’s just the feeling of hopelessness.
    You see no purpose in life, no light at the end of the tunnel.
    You’re trying to swim but you’re just being dragged to the bottom of the ocean.
    There’s this sort of heaviness on you, almost crushing you, making you only feel a deep sadness.
    You have little to no emotions and just lay in bed all day.
    There’s no motivations to do anything except sleep.
    You can’t get enough sleep - it’s your only escape.
    Note that this is just what I feel, not everyone else

The only real mental illnesses are aspergers/autism, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD, MPD, and ADHD. Depression and anxiety are emotions, not mental disorders.

  • Can Anxiety be a reason to why I am always shaking?

  • How to get rid of suicidal thoughts?

    I was supposed to do it last week, but my grandmother unexpectedly came - and now the plans are postponed. I just want to get rid of these thoughts before it's too late.

    I was supposed to do it last week, but my grandmother unexpectedly came - and now the plans are postponed. I just want to get rid of these thoughts before it's too late. I'm not eating, showering, doing my school work (and I used to be a straight-A student). I just don't care anymore, and nobody cares about me. My dad says my anxiety is an excuse for laziness, and my mother stares at her phone and nods indifferently as I tell her that I want to end my own life. I don't care anymore, yet something's holding me back. How do I get rid of these thoughts? I've done therapy, but it never seemed to work.

  • Would I be a racist if I refused to answer question from LGBTQAH people?

    Best answer: This falls into the area of freedom of speech. Like the freedom not to speak as well. I refuse to answer questions of a sexual content, whether it be from a straight person or someone from the alternative community. Remember,you don't have to give your opinion on anything.

    Best answer: This falls into the area of freedom of speech. Like the freedom not to speak as well. I refuse to answer questions of a sexual content, whether it be from a straight person or someone from the alternative community. Remember,you don't have to give your opinion on anything. And others would be childish to think that if you refused to answer some personally offensive question, that makes you worthy of some radical and condemning label. If your friends are taunting you, demanding you tell them what you think of something LGBTQAH oriented, then you would do well to tell them to knock it off, don't go there, it's none of their business, or however you want to tell them to shut up and grow up.

  • Aggressive horn beeper upset me and I know who it was so how do I get over it?

    I was pulling out. I stopped at the junction. I looked both ways.

    I was pulling out. I stopped at the junction. I looked both ways. It was clear apart from a car a long way off and it was a 30 road so as everyone does I pulled out and carried on slow as it was approaching another junction. From nowhere I hear aggressive horn beeping behind and I instantly put my hand up to apologise as I thought I must have done something wrong. It went on for ages. My passenger agreed that I had pulled out safely - I pulled over as I was scared and the driver gave me a nasty look as he passed and I continued to apologise with my hands. Problem is - he is a teacher at my kids school. He recognised me. I thought he was a quiet bloke. Now I'm scared of him. I think he must have been speeding and almost went into the back of me - I pulled over and he was going slow past me and gave me a nasty look though so he wasn't just warning me he was being abusive. I'm afraid to go to parents evening now. I'm also afraid to drive. I'm a survivor of abuse my ex used to hit me so I don't know what to do to get over this.
