...See moreIt's holiday season again. I've never really liked holiday season because it keeps reminding me of how I don't have the happy family to live it to the fullest. My parents are still married but i hardly ever see them do anything together, or talk to each other, or even eat dinner at same time. I don't have any siblings and all the relatives I have just have their own lives to focus on. I don't have a lot of friends either and the couple I do are either not as responsive to make plans over the weekend or already have plans with their significant others. I just feel really lonely sometimes and I can't lean on or trust anyone. I'm not sure how long this has been going on but honestly, few weeks ago I said screw this and took myself out to this bar I've been to a couple times. It just didn't seem like a bad idea to go by myself and people watch on a weekend. Funny thing is, I started to enjoy it after the second time. Two of the people who work there recognize me too now and they talk to me when I'm there. It's gotten to a point where I'm looking forward to the weekends now just so I can go there again and feel like I'm home. I'm still a lonely person but at least little things like that add meaning to my life and help me keep going. I just don't know how long I have until the next episode of depressive thoughts...

...See moreI have hard time focusing on things around me or the things that is realistic. Instead my brain focuses on the things that is just so unrealistic for a normal brain( i guess). Like my brain wonders about that aleins or developed Civilization who is watching me and guiding me , who has chosen me to do something great on earth huhhh. but dude I can't share this things with anyone maybe people think I am crazy. They think I just can't do simple task and that's why I am creating story.
I don't know why my brain can't focus on just a paragraph but can romanticize the idea that some more developed Civilization has chosen me and had sent me on this planet to live with them and help them develop. And all of this ADHD thing is a so called superpower which i don't know how to control or maybe a drawback come with other superpower like as all other superheroes who also have something to struggle with. I don't know is this my brain is creating this stories or it is really a superpower. sometime it made me feel very behind from others and sometimes I fell like this is the thing which makes me unique from the world and this is superpower which is given me to do something in the world which is out of control of other human beings. I don't know is this things making any sense or its just me ADHD brain making this up. Please let me know am i crazy or this things making sense.
...See moreSo I'm new to this community but not talking about my feelings is not helping anymore and its getting worse when I feel like I can't talk to anyone about whats going on in my head. Just slowly hating myself more because I can't do anything right. Feeling so helpless but also the only one I can actually depend on for myself, nobody in my life has ever proved to me that I could depend on anyone and was basically an adult before I had the time to be a child. I just am not sure what to do with myself anymore.

...See moreI started binge drinking 3 years ago after a mental breakdown in an abusive relationship. I left him, moved away, started a new life, started working out and eating healthy and was sober. Then I met my new husband who is absolutely fantastic! But it triggered my past trauma to be in a healthy relationship after toxic ones and I hit the bottle again. It’s been 1.5 years and I am so ready to be done with booze! It’s disgusting. It’s changed my looks and ruined my health. The cravings get to be so bad and I give in again. I cannot ruin my new marriage with alcohol. I have too much to lose.
