I'm new here

Hey,

Does anyone ever feel empty and like you feel like everything is wrong and then when someone asks you what's wrong you don't know how to explain it. And then it only gets worse because they make you feel like there has to be a reason. Like no one gets how you feel and you're all alone. Even though people who ask have good intentions so I feel bad for not having an answer but that just fucks me up more........

I felt that before. When you just don’t feel right and you can’t pinpoint what’s wrong. It’s hard explaining the feelings to others.

All the time. Just pray that one day god gives you the words to speak up. Try describing your feelings. It’s better to speak it out then to keep it in

Yeah maybe it is, but like, I don't want to make my problems other people's problems.

Have you tried journaling? It has helped me from time to time. Is there a support group in your area?

I feel like this a lot too lately. I don't ever seem to get released from it even when I do talk about it out loud of write it down the physical and emotional feeling won't let go

Yeah, that sucks. I personally feel like talking about it to someone makes it worse because then I admit I'm not okay and it makes me realise it and all. And when I talk about it people look at me pitiful. Idk if you feel like that too. Talking about it like this is kind of nice tho. Atleast it's comforting to know I am not alone in this but on the other hand I wish no one felt like this you know. I wish I would have all the answers I need to help everyone.

You are definitely not alone.....some people are just better at hiding their anxieties. I agree that being willing to talk about issues with like minded people is healthy and beneficial for all concerned. Take care,

honestly, i get that exact same feeling all the time. i used to go to therapy but it's like the questions i was being asked were irrelevant to how i was feeling. my teachers always ask me whats wrong or if there is anything they can do, but there's not. it makes me want to be alone and not talk to anyone. almost like it's my fault that i'm going through this.

Yes, I hate it. I don't even want to do anything with anyone anymore, but I do it as less as I can cause otherwise I will get questions. But I feel like it just takes all of my energy away

I've been asked several times If I'm ok. Usually just say yes I'm ok, just tired.

That's why I'm alone most of the time... I don't need people..

I just tell them everything is fine. I have found people only ask how I am as a way to initiate a conversation. They aren’t really interested in how I am usually.
