Some advice or just somebody to listen would be helpful...

Hi, name's Rebekah I'm new here I don't know if I actually have anxiety naturally but I've had a life long history with very bad decisions in my life that have eventually lead to my more or less "behavioral issues", OCD, depression, "social anxiety" Etc ~

So yeah, my life didn't start out bad or anything, but again, my poor decisions in life is what lead to my eventual down fall. And anyway, I don't see that there's any way out.

Heck, even allot of my life issues/problems and circumstances seem to, in a way overtake the good decisions in my life right now. I want help and people are so intolerant at times. If I were them I'd have no patience for myself either. Anywho, I better not go on rambling...sometimes I do that............I feel as though I have the most problems on this website...like my problems make others problems seem smaller......like when others see my issues their likely thinking "wow, glad at least I'm not like her with her issues and circumstances "...that's pretty bad I know.

Advice or just somebody to be around would be somewhat helpful. Thanks and God bless.

Please don't beat yourself up as you sound very depressed to me. Have you had medical help at all?

If you want to talk by a private message then I will be happy to give you an ear as I have suffered like you for a number of years. Good luck, you are not alone.

Hi Bird-67, thank you for your support. It's real good to know that I'm not the only one out there who is going through this...(*God forbid if you're showing your sorrow in front of people, because they don't be around you...I swear people are flaky, lol!*). No, I haven't had any medical help yet at least not professionally. Let's talk whenever you're available. Thank you and God bless!

Would you rather do private messages?

I am trying to send you a private message with my details but can't find how to do it. Do you know what to do?

i don't see you on here now...i know what you mean about the site,sort of odd, still beggars can't be choosers but you also can't say what you want and need as there seems to be a hierachy,maybe a nanny to control what comes on here,i think some are born vulnerable and the 'bad'? decisions come from this and people exploiting you ,often by being the perhaps not v kind people they are.~~doubt you'll see this sent with love and need ,oh i've just seen,you can do private messages ?

Depression can make everything seem so much worse than it is. We all make bad decisions in life See your doctor and take any advice they give you and give it time. Take it from me, once you are well you will see things in a completely different way xxxx

Smartbob1 - Yeah, I'm starting to think differently in my life. This is the second time I'm making a change in my life....my great regret is that I came to change when it's too late in my life right now. And as far as things getting better, some of the things are circumstantial and so I have no control over those things. I feel like allot of the things I want to change are simply too late now. Hopefully they'll melt away soon in the future.....(-:

And thank you for the encouragement!

I feel the same way. Everything you said is what I'm feeling. I feel like I have no one to talk to. Actually I really don't have anyone that can understand what it is I'm going through or what I'm feeling. It would be really nice to have someone to talk to that knows somewhat of it is I'm going through. I'm here if you ever want to talk. My name is Allie.

Hey AllieCat88, I thank you and it would be nice to talk to others about this, it's good to know there's others out there with the same problems as me. I'd love to be an ear to you as well, right now I don't have a job (part of my depression), and so I'm available pretty much any time. God bless you. (-:

I don't have a job either. Looks like we have that in common. What type of job do you want?

Hopefully, (God willing) I'll work in the library or become a Phlebotomist. Right now I'm out of work. I just missed an interview for a maid job at a hotel here in Vegas due to transportation issues...

Hi there. I am sorry that you have so many problems and I wish I could help you. If listening helps, I am all ears. I will say this: God didn't make any mistakes. You are here for a reason. Maybe it's to learn to make better decisions, who knows? Maybe it's to help other people in some way. Whatever your problems are, I hope that you are able to overcome them. Everyone needs support and things are much more difficult without it. Do you have any close family or friends? You may need to be medicated. I am on a heavy cocktail of meds and I still can't work due to my cognitive issues, etc., but meds have helped me in many ways in the past. And getting enough quality sleep is crucial when you have a mental health issue, so if you have any trouble sleeping, hopefully you will get on some sleep medication. Like I said, I am all ears, but if you reply, be patient for a response since I don't check my mail daily. Thanks and good wishes!!! Keep God in your life.

So, have you been to a doctor and gotten a diagnosis for anything? Meds can help. Do you see a therapist? Have you had a psych assessment to see if treatment would be a good option for you?
