Hi everyone

Hello, my name is Bella. I stumbled upon this website just a few moments ago. I was going through it again. My subconscious mind just constantly thinking about stuff that makes me so depressed, angry, and even scared. And then it begins....my heart is beating fast and I just start to panic. I've been using the grounding technique as well as excercise and meditation. And it does help. But there are a few mountains im climbing right now in my life. And I'm not in good terms with my family. It kills me, they are unforgiving and so judgemental and they can say hurtful things and not even realize the power of the words they use. Dont get me wrong, their good hardworking parents but they are so strict and they yell so much and I feel like nobody understands me. I literally am never home and I don't really like going home:/ I do anyways but I stay at my boyfriends house a lot. Over all, I love myself. I love who I am and I love being me. I love living life. I just feel so depressed because of the things going on in my life even in this world. Sometimes I ask myself where the heck am I how can it be this cruel out here. My anxiety gets me. I've tried Xanax. It helps a lot but it's way to strong. I have a full time job , I go to school, and I love to excercise with my dogs. On my days off I go to the gun range and practice my aim. On my free time I journal and I work on the book I'm writing. I couldn't do all of these things when I was taking Xanax. Colonopin is lighter but it's basically the same stuff. So what do I do? I smoke a little greens here and there. It helps but I can't be smoking that all day every day . I have responsibilities. I guess you could say that I'm a workaholic. I found my fix . I'm loved and praised at work. I'm needed at work. So I feel this sense of purpose and I'm happy when I'm there because they all love me and I'm good at what I do. I am a changed person. I'm responsible and I know how the world works now. But my family can't let go of the past , so they assume things or judge me or say smart remarks. I always reassure them but that doesn't work. I tell them that I need them , I need their support. Little do they know that the things they say and do to me make me so upset I leave my home I won't come back for days and I think recklessly because of it. I may not act out on it anymore like I used to but I think about it and I get so frustrated. Honestly I could write for days all the things that are wrong with me. Truth is, I have nobody to talk to and I don't quit have all the answers yet. I'm kind of lost and I don't know where to turn ): there is a battle going on in my head.....somebody, anybody.....please help me

Well I definitely can relate to the depression. But it'd seems that with all you have going on you have at least plenty of things to keep you busy or distracted enough. I'd like to think of myslef as the independent mom myslef. I've always worked. I have goals that I am and was very excited about that at first kept me going. Then when this anxiety and mild depression kicked in it became a struggle to even want to do anything. Last few weeks however I had to force myself back into my hobbies I had that I was working on as far as my goals. But some days are worse for me. But it's good you have s boyfriend to be around and for the most part you can still be around your parents even though they make things hard. I'd talk to them and explain what you feel.
