Thank You


I know I seem positive all the time, but honestly, I'm a mess. I spend my days at home, laying in bed a lot. More than someone my age should. I have a very compromised immune system due to my autoimmune disease, so especially now, I can't really go anywhere.

And I feel guilty, I feel scared, I feel like life isn't worth living a lot. But my son, my husband, and the people on this forum help me. They make me feel like I have a purpose. So thank you all. And if anyone needs a friend, a shoulder to cry on, or someone to just vent to, I'm here. Just knowing I'm not alone has helped more than anyone could ever know.

Thank you.

There's no shame. You are only human. We ALL including people off the site go through problems. All of us. It's a part of the human ecperience. Plus we are all social beings to support each other. That is also part of the human experience. My advice is to accept what is happening. Accept that you have these symptoms. Accept it. The anguish comes when we deny who we are. Once we accept ourselves and love ourselves everything else in our lives fall into place. It's the inner turmoil that makes us fall short not the circumstances!!

That is understandable. My friends suffers from the same thing. Im sorry you are feeling the way you do. Yes, accept it but do not put yourself down for it. Ok? Remember that. You are accepting it and then looking at it in a compassionate so to make yourself feel better. Make yourself feel better bc you are worth it and you deserve it.

Hi everyone. I'm new here so I'm not sure what I'm doing, all I know is I need to talk to people. I moved to tx 2yrs ago to be with my son and grandson, I'm from denver. I am miserable. I moved here with my boyfriend turned just friends. I'm so lonely and he's terrible, he's always right NEVER says I'm sorry or I was wrong it's always my fault. It's not that easy to move home i have been trying for almost a yr. I have copd and this humidity lately has really got me alot in bed. I need to sell my house find a house in denver before I move because I don't think I can move twice. I just need to know how to cope?

Hi! I'm so sorry you're in a stressful situation! I use meditation through the headspace app to cope. Talking is always a helpful coping mechanism as well. And I'm always here if you need a friend.

Use this site to vent. Evetyone here is very supportive. We are here for each other!

You are doing an amazing job getting through this very difficult time! It is a tough time for everyone, but I think especially so for those who struggle with mental health issues as we become more isolated.

Definitely. Mental heatlh has been such a struggle lately. But being here for each other is the best thing to do right now.
