    I was diagnosed with body dysmorphic disorder and social anxiety. I DO go out. go for long walks with my dog and I go shopping on my own (even though I get panic attacks around people). But I don't ever go out with friends. I never socialise. I can't seem to keep friends. I always end up upsetting them, but I don't know why. I even go to the cinema alone. I went to the cinema on my birthday alone because my 'friends' cancelled on me. I want to start trying to mix with people but I have no idea how to. I just get shy around people and quiet and I can see they are looking at me like, 'why are you here? or are you simple?' Please help. I feel so lonely some times.

  • How does depression make you feel? can somebody (preferably somebody who experienced it or experience it) give me a close insight?

    Best answer: For me it’s just the feeling of hopelessness. You see no purpose in life, no light at the end of the tunnel. You’re trying to swim but you’re just being dragged to the bottom of the ocean. There’s this sort of heaviness on you, almost crushing you, making you only feel a deep sadness. You have little to no... show more
    Best answer: For me it’s just the feeling of hopelessness.
    You see no purpose in life, no light at the end of the tunnel.
    You’re trying to swim but you’re just being dragged to the bottom of the ocean.
    There’s this sort of heaviness on you, almost crushing you, making you only feel a deep sadness.
    You have little to no emotions and just lay in bed all day.
    There’s no motivations to do anything except sleep.
    You can’t get enough sleep - it’s your only escape.
    Note that this is just what I feel, not everyone else

  • How to get rid of suicidal thoughts?

    I was supposed to do it last week, but my grandmother unexpectedly came - and now the plans are postponed. I just want to get rid of these thoughts before it's too late. I'm not eating, showering, doing my school work (and I used to be a straight-A student). I just don't care anymore, and nobody cares... show more
    I was supposed to do it last week, but my grandmother unexpectedly came - and now the plans are postponed. I just want to get rid of these thoughts before it's too late. I'm not eating, showering, doing my school work (and I used to be a straight-A student). I just don't care anymore, and nobody cares about me. My dad says my anxiety is an excuse for laziness, and my mother stares at her phone and nods indifferently as I tell her that I want to end my own life. I don't care anymore, yet something's holding me back. How do I get rid of these thoughts? I've done therapy, but it never seemed to work.

  • Can Anxiety be a reason to why I am always shaking?

    Best answer: Anxiety can absolutely be the reason. It is usually a sign that panic attacks are possible if you are not able to de-stress.

  • True or false: Depression/Anxiety are not real mental illnesses?

    They are fake illnesses that are just placed because someone feels a certain way that anyone can feel, so they think they must have these conditions.

    They are fake illnesses that are just placed because someone feels a certain way that anyone can feel, so they think they must have these conditions. Pretty much any mood disorder is a fake disorder, including bipolar disorder, which also is not a real mental illness. The only real mental illnesses are aspergers/autism, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD, MPD, and ADHD. Depression and anxiety are emotions, not mental disorders.

  • Why do people say the way I parent my kids is wrong when it is not?

    Have had my kids homeschooled for 9 years. Refused to teach them to drive at 15/16 refused to get them lessons, refused to let my wife and sister teach them.

    Have had my kids homeschooled for 9 years. Refused to teach them to drive at 15/16 refused to get them lessons, refused to let my wife and sister teach them. Refused to let them get a job at 16/17 because I did not want to drive them or get them proof of their ages and names. They still have no ID and I refuse to help them. Did not put them in any groups to meet friends during those 9 years of having them homeschooled. We don't live in the city, so the bus is 30 miles from us in the city they both refuse to walk in the middle of the interstate to get there. Stopped celebrating their birthdays at 5/6 years old. Celebrate my own, my wife's and my sisters though as we are actual adults(in our 50s) and can do what we want. Plan to kick my kids out with nothing they can sink or swim I don't believe in helping them. They are 18 and 19. Why do Christians and social justice warriors say I am in the wrong when I am not?

  • Would I be a racist if I refused to answer question from LGBTQAH people?

    Best answer: This falls into the area of freedom of speech. Like the freedom not to speak as well. I refuse to answer questions of a sexual content, whether it be from a straight person or someone from the alternative community. Remember,you don't have to give your opinion on anything.

    Best answer: This falls into the area of freedom of speech. Like the freedom not to speak as well. I refuse to answer questions of a sexual content, whether it be from a straight person or someone from the alternative community. Remember,you don't have to give your opinion on anything. And others would be childish to think that if you refused to answer some personally offensive question, that makes you worthy of some radical and condemning label. If your friends are taunting you, demanding you tell them what you think of something LGBTQAH oriented, then you would do well to tell them to knock it off, don't go there, it's none of their business, or however you want to tell them to shut up and grow up.

  • Why Can't an Automobile Fly?

    It is true that it is heavier than air, but so is a commercial jet liner, and it flies. How does an airplane stay aloft anyway, and why can't an automobile do the same thing?
