  1. Well the gaming industry is huge so I don't see why it's an unrealistic dream. It doesn't sound childish at all. If you can really imagine yourself doing it, you should! Besides, you could always go to college someday if you really need to. I hope that you find the site helpful!
  2. Everyone has their ups & downs throughout the day, so it is common. But your moods are much more extreme. Have you been diagnosed with any mental illness?
  3. I'm sorry you had a tough upbringing. It was not your fault. Now that you are an adult, you can chose to change your life. Slowly, step by step, you can achieve your goals. Are you in any type of therapy? You need to get used to the feeling of touch. Are you able to hug family members or even shake hands? You can improve your life. It will be hard, but you can do this.
  4. It depends on how important the person is to you. If it's someone not too important, I would just ignore it & not have much contact with them again. If it's someone very close to you, ask them why they are acting so strangely towards you. Also consider that they may not realize that they are being rude to you. They might just be having a bad day.
  5. You have made a courageous & amazing decision. I hope to see you around the forums.
  6. The purpose of life shouldn't be to feel happiness. You need to get that out of your head otherwise you will always feel miserable. Your friends & family would be devastated if you harm yourself. Don't do it. Tell somebody how your feeling now so you can get yourself in a safe environment. You are stronger than you think. You can survive this. If you want practical solutions to change your life now, ask. I was able to dig myself out of the hell that is depression, so I think that I can offer you some valuable advice for everyday living. I hope you keep posting.
  7. I understand how you feel. You just have to force yourself to do the things that you once found pleasurable. It won't feel good at first, but it will eventually.
  8. I truly empathize with your situation. I know how hard it is to fight depression. Life has its ups & downs, & we have to overcome the bad spots. You have family & friends that care about you. Recovering from depression is a hard & exhausting battle, but it is worth it. You can survive this.
  9. Water! Make sure that you are drinking enough water. Now that I drink lots of water everyday, I feel much better physically & mentally. I cannot offer advice on medications. You will have to discuss the pros & cons of your specific medication with your doctor. Also, make sure that you are eating at least one healthy meal a day. I start each day with a bowl of oatmeal. If your diet is really unhealthy, don't just throw out all the junk food at once, because you'll probably end up binging on it. Replace one unhealthy food with a healthy one. For example, if you usually eat a burger with fries, substitute the fries with a baked potato. Small steps like these are very helpful. I hope that you find the right solution soon!
  10. Hello, Jordan. I'm glad that you feel comfortable enough on this site to share your story. It's important that you don't hold too much of your emotions in. It will just make you feel worse. Most people walking around put up a front that they are doing ok, but in reality have many struggles, so you shouldn't feel ashamed or alone in that. Motivation also doesn't last long for most people. You have to keep going even when you feel exhausted & uninspired. You sound like you may be too hard on yourself. You need to break large goals into smaller ones. Otherwise you will feel overwhelmed & will give up on the entire goal. Please don't feel hopeless. You're only 28, you still have lots of time to accomplish your goals.
  11. Hello, Riverlight. It sounds like you are being too hard on yourself. Self improvement & completing goals usually doesn't happen quickly. You need to break up your large goals into smaller, more manageable ones. You will be able to get a better job someday. You are stronger than you think. Keep going.
  12. (((Icarus))) I'm sorry that nobody believed what you had to say about your mom. I know what it's like to deal with a very manipulative family member, so I can empathize with your situation. I'm not going to tell you that life is going to get better magically. Self improvement is hard & exhausting, but everything that is worth anything is difficult to obtain. If it was easy, it wouldn't be so valuable. It sounds like you have already taken the advice of others. The only thing I can add is to keep going.
  13. Hello, & welcome to the site! Life is full of ups & downs. What's important is how we react to it. Please don't feel like a failure because you are dealing with depression again. If you can survive it once, you can survive it again. I hope that you find the site helpful!
  14. I'm sorry that you are struggling through this break up. I know how much it hurts, but you will save yourself a lot of pain & heartache if you just move on. It sounds like she enjoys playing mind games with you. You should really stop messaging her. You deserve better. You absolutely should feel free to vent & ask for advice on this site.
  15. Making sure that I am taking deep breaths really helps since my breathing gets fast & shallow when I'm nervous. Also walking around helps.
  16. What a beautiful post. I hope that 2016 turns out to be a better year than the last for everyone!
  17. Now we're even closer to the New Year! I hope that everyone has a fun New Year's Eve! Get your party hats ready
  18. As the New Year approaches, it is impossible not to reflect. 2015 has been one of the most challenging years in my short life. There were many times when I felt like I could not go on any longer. I just wanted the pain to end. But I survived. I survived through every moment when I felt absolutely hopeless. If I can live through it, so can you. I am grateful that my situation has improved. I worked so hard, & am continuing to fight everyday. It was exhausting & felt impossible at first, but now it is becoming more routine. No, my life is not perfect, & progress is slow, but it is getting better. One thing that has helped me enormously is this site. You all give me a feeling of purpose. I truly hope that I have helped someone on here as much as you all have helped me. As the New Year approaches, I hope that you are able to realize what strong, valuable people you are. We are fighters. We fight everyday to make our lives better despite all the challenges. Keep fighting into the New Year. :hearthrob: :happyny15: :hearthrob:
  19. You could just continue posting on here. I've found it very helpful to chat with people that relate to my situation.
  20. Hello, Kirk. You joined a wonderful community of people that understand what you are going through, & are willing to listen & help. If you have any questions about how the site works, feel free to post your question on here. You could also message me or any other moderator. Best wishes, Jules19.
  21. Hello! It's good that you are finally posting. You will probably find it relieving to share your feelings. You say that your girlfriend has a problem with her ex? That sounds really problematic to me. I'm not sure how young you are, but if you are very young, you should consider working on yourself & your situation before entering a relationship. You really need to control your drinking. If you are feeling depressed, alcohol is just going to make everything worse. I hope that you find some great advice on here!
