Dearest Bloggo...

I have that depressed feeling you get when you think about all the activies you can be doing to keep yourself busy and productive, and you have not only a complete lack of interests in them but a repulsion towards them.
I usually LOVE playing on the computer or writing.
I think the only thing I feel I can do without feeling icky about i...


Recent Thoughts (Be Warned: This Will Trigger)

Posted by Tacit Blue in Tacit's Blog, 21 December 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

I wish I could just disappear. I wish I could make it so I never existed. I wish I never had to look in another mirror again.
I wish people would STOP complimenting me, because it's lies. They are lying to me and to themselves. I am a horrible person, I am a failure as a human being, I am a worthless, pathetic loser with no future.
And I don...

HELLO ALL :-) Welcome to my blog (if anyone is reading this). I have been using this site for ages and only just discovered the blog component, silly me!

Well about me, I am 33 years of age, female and live in Australia. I have had binge eating disorder since I was 15, have chronic anxiety and depression, and have narcissistic personality disorder with s...

A thousand roads I’ve walked to get here, to become me.
Beaten and battered I stand here with all of the strength of every year I’ve lived, every trial I’ve faced, and every friend I hold dear. With the confidence of a few kind words, uttered in drunken moments.
With the certainty of today, and the hope for tomorrow; I am m...

Tired... I don't know how I managed to drag myself through Monday and Tuesday at work.  It was sleeting this morning, so I called my boss for a ride, since I'm not really crazy about walking through sleet. I guess I sounded so crappy over the phone she told me to stay home.  She's seen me dragging at work the last couple of days, I guess.  So I stay...


If It's Not This, It's That, Or The Other Thing

Posted by Shmooey in Shmooey's Fort, 17 December 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

Brief background for those who don't know me - I have been white-knuckling through severe agoraphobia since early 2012.  Lost a job over it in August 2012 and spent the next eight months unemployed and in full breakdown.  Finally, a pdoc who was a resident at a teaching hospital saw how much distress I was in in late June 2014, and gave me 0.5 m...

Letters To Rachel

Posted by msunderstood in msunderstood's Blog, 16 December 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

My best friend is Rachel. 
For as long as I can remember, I've kept a journal, a diary, random thoughts on post its and scratch sheets of paper. I've only made the mistake of burning those pages ONCE. I won't do that again. Destroying those thoughts was a mistake and I learned not to do that. I've told Rachel many times that when I die, she ca...


The New Job Plunge!

Posted by allalone6 in allalone6's Blog, 16 December 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

the idea of change is making me extremely anxious. but i know deep down i need to do something. Whether its a new job or have the most difficult & uncomfortable talk with my main boss about how his daughter (the other boss) is making my life miserable.
The talk could go two ways, quite well and i see a change or, could make her resent me more,...


I Want To Be Wanted

Posted by justaguy13 in justaguy13's Blog, 13 December 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

I really wish I could meet someone that wants me. That wants to talk to me and be around me. Someone that is physically attracted to me. I hate being this ugly unattractive mess that I have been my whole life, I want someone to think I look good, or that I'm funny or interesting. I hate the fact I don't mean anything to anyone, that I don't create any fee...


Learning Not To Interpret And React

Posted by bellbottoms in bellbottoms' Blog, 10 December 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

Sometimes I watch buddhist vids on youtube. It always makes sense while I watch and then I make a note to myself to not forget what is said but of course I do anyway and if I remember I probably remember wrong but anyway. I can never remember their eloquent ways of phrasing things and when I try to repeat it it always comes off as clumsy but oh well....

Mary's Rules Of Mothering

At my daughter’s baby shower a book was passed around for all of the guests to write down words of parenting advice for the new mom.  This is what I wrote to my daughter:
Your dad and I had no words of advice or godly examples to follow when we embarked on the adventure of parenting.  My main goal was to do everything the opposit...

I've been doing better since last Wednesday and the busted windshield despite the glass place having to push my appointment to tomorrow instead of this past Friday. Since my mom has off tomorrow and going shopping with a friend, she's dropping my car off at the glass place and her friend is picking her up there and I'm taking her car to...


Dreams: Sign Language; Pledge Of Allegiance

Posted by Hertz in Almost Random, 28 November 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

Dream 1:
There is a man standing. He seems in his thirties, has a little bit of a beard. He's saying that he is a libertarian and thinks the government should abolish welfare programs. A woman is standing next to him, wearing jeans, about the same age. She turns to him, smiling, and tells him something in sign language. He replies in perfect sign language...

Day 8

Posted by fe905 in Day by Day, 24 November 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

The darkness that has enveloped my thoughts for the past few years has gotten worse.
I didn't think it would, or could.
But it has.
Honestly, I'm very scared. There's no other way of putting it.
My family has finally found out how about my "depression" and they have been supporting, up to a certain point. I don't think they quite understand...

Trigger warning: suicide
I haven't blogged here in a long time.  Back in August, I started having panic attacks and went to the doctor for help.  Two things were at work here, my natural anxiety and overmedicated thyroid.  The doctor lowered my dosage and put me on Celexa, which has been absolutely amazing for me.  I'm a nail bi...

I pushed myself a little too hard today. I wanted to go out to the movies, so I could spend some time with a friend I hadn't seen in a while; and even though I normally don't leave the house, I really forced myself this time to go out. I pulled myself together to take a shower, and do my hair for the first time in months. I dressed up and put on makeup; a...


Trying To Be Nice To Myself

Posted by tmm0127 in ramblings of an uneasy soul, 19 November 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

Trying To Be Nice To Myself I was cleaning up my thumb drive and went through some pictures my sister took while we were out and about in D.C. back in July. The point of the photos was for her to practice and for me to have recent photos to put up on my OKC profile.
Going through the photos just kind of sent a jolt of disappointment and disgust into my mind and chest. Way bac...
