I was abused and watched my mom be abused for 16 years. I was diagnosed with PTSD, BPD, and anxiety and I’m not sure if I can do it anymore. I’m 18 and still live with my mom who refuse to let me get my drivers license when I was 16. I have been asking her for help just making appointments and organizing my schedule and getting a job. Today I had a dream I was being abused and it set my whole day off with a me being in a bad mood. I talked to her about how my mental health is depleting and things that trigger it and she told me " Stop feeling sorry for yourself." I have also been raised in a family that doesn’t talk about mental health very often if at all so I’m expected to be okay all the time. A lot of my family members talk about me and how I’m "weak”.

Its ok to be weak. We all are. If you are 18, you can make your own appointments. Look for Mental Health Agencies in your area. They will be glad to help.

I have severe PTSD and i have depression and I have personality disorder and I'm also ADHD and i have had a hard life and im 36 now and i feel it slowly taking over and i have served my country for 6 years and two tours in iraq and i have tried to reach out for help and i was told that i have to wait 3 to 5 years to been seen. I dont understand how a country can do that to they military. I feel more depressed because my country dont even respect me and care bout me. I dont know what to do. If effects every part of my life, I have a hard time with intimate relationships, personal relationships are tested at times. I feel so alone because people are quick to judge me or treat me a certain way. My life is a huge raging war and its been going on for many many years and i feel the power shifting sides and i need help.

I am so sorry for your pain. I know people are cruel and life can be hard. I have depression and anxiety disorders. I really hate panic attacks, but I have them too. I am glad you reached out!

Suffering from mental health I have learned is one of the hardest things to deal with in life. People don’t see a physical disorder or disease and they think it’s not real but I’m here to tell u it’s very real and debilitating. Try to keep your head held as high as u can today and pray for a better tomorrow. At least that’s what I do everyday. Good luck friend.

Hi, I have been feeling alone and empty lately. I’m scared to reach out to my friends and family, they have just ignored my feelings before so, I try and hide them when they’re around. Everything is just getting harder to do. Can someone/anyone give me some guidance? Or be a friend? Thanks :)
