How do I start?

Im new here. Im ready to ask for help. I realized i cant do this alone anymore. I have explained my condition to my immediate family, they simply don't understand, which makes me feel so alone. I don't talk to anybody about the way that i feel, what Im going through. If Im around people i excuse my self and cry in the bathroom, and go back to pretending Im ok. Like i said in my profile I stopped seeing the beauty in life, everything seems so grey. I don't know how to get better, where do I start?

Share your story, tell more about yourself, I guess that’s how you start.

Hello. Welcome. I stopped trying to seek emotional support from my family a long time ago. I think it’s hard for some family members to accept a loved one has mental illness. Some families won’t acknowledge it because they feel it reflects poorly on the entire family. Then I just chalk it up to human nature.

I'm the same..i know how you feel.I found the courage to open up to my parents and got nothing..if I saw anyone whos in my shoes I would be concerned but my family brushed me off..this is adding if not the main cause of my life being so miserable..idk what do either..its so painful..i feel your pain..wish I had answers for you but you are not alone..be strong..

Here is a good start talking with others stops you becoming isolated.
