My Name is Blake and I live in SE United States. I have a psychology degree from Suffolk University in Boston but never did anything with it. At least not yet. I’ve dealt with depression, anxiety, addiction my whole life. Then had a turbulent relationship that made everything worse. That was 10 years ago. I’ve grown a lot since then and have been to numerous psych treatments both inpatient and out. I still struggle with depression and anxiety everyday, and it has wrecked a lot of things for me. I’m finally starting to do well and pull myself out of this hole. So I’m a listener because it helps me to help someone else. Really. I’m excited to be here and plan to stay a while.

I really want to give up so terribly but i know that i can't 

I know i have things to do and places to be tomorrow but right now all i want is to say fuck everything and just give up.

@peachAvocado2146, I understand how you feel. This, for me, is a constant thought. To just give up. I set goals, even small ones, just to keep me focused and grounded. Find outlets to help stir yourself into other, more positive thoughts. I suffer MDD, Generalized Anxiety and Auditory Hallucinations. Just being can be difficult, but the rewards  are even better.

Hi there! I recently joined because I feel very lonely and isolated, and very sad. I have this problem for two years now, and its starting to take a toll on me. I had tried to talk to faculty staff at my school about my problems with socialization but they just offered me a pat on the back, for all the good that does.

Hi whoever's reading this. I joined 7cups exactly a month ago, on September 18th, and I think the fact I decided to post for the first time in the forum today of all days is an interesting coincidence. I decided to join because I've had anxiety and depression for a few years now, but I refuse to talk about with another human being and keeping all my crap in is starting to take its toll on me. I don't want to talk to my real life friends or family about it because I know they've got their own shit going on and I don't want to add my problems to theirs, despite them saying they'd be glad to help or listen. I just don't think it's fair. Also when I talk about personal stuff with someone face to face I tend to get very overwhelmed so if I do decide to share personal stuff I just feel dumb for not being able to express those feeling like a regular human being.

I know I should go see a therapist, I really do. I did go for a few months a year ago, but then I went to study abroad for a few months and when I came back I just couldn't go back. Everytime time I think about getting professional help my brain's like "NOPE". I think my biggest issue is that I get nervous and overwhelmed when people are looking at me, so talking exclusively about myself to a stranger while they're staring at me is a nightmare to my anxiety-ridden brain.

Anyway, I thought it would be slightly easier to talk to someone that can't see me... So that's why I'm here. Sorry for the info dump, I've been postponing this for a literal month so I guess everything just poured out (I'm a professional procrastinator).

@BitterOwl Welcome to the group! I also don't want to talk to anyone in person, and I'm willing to bet there are a lot of us are on this site that feel the same. But thats ok. This is a great place to get started with feeling better.

@littlebird03 It's nice to know I'm not the only one who feels this way! And you're right, this site does seem like a good point to start from :)

I recently joined 7 Cups for a safe place to vent and try to work out the goop in my brain. I've been a member for a week now and I'm starting to come out of my shell a bit. It's an encouraging enviroment, such a wonderful change! I can't wait to see how this community influences me and my journey to becoming a better Me to Myself. 

Hello, everyone! I joined 7cups because I want to help others to feel better about myself and to learn about managing my own emotions and anxiety. So far, the community is so nice and helpful I have to resist the urge to act defensive, lol.

Nothing in my life is wrong. I love my family and my job, but all i can think about is ending it all, and i dont understand why because nothing is wrong but the urge to just go to sleep and never wake up is just so strong
