    Do you believe you will ever get a 'good friend'?

    I've had real good friends and pushed them away because I wasn't able to see and appreciate them properly; so for me it's about both finding a good friend and also BEING a good friend

    Everything makes sense now!

    Ok so first few days of knowing what it is has been a good and bad thing. Good... just having a name makes it less scarry. It's real it's not just me being weird it's a thing. Other people have it. Other people will have survived it and maybe they've turned their life around? Bad... What if I'm...

    anxiety vs depression

    How did you learn to control it? For me it's mainly anxiety especially when it comes to relationships and my (in)ability to create a proper life for myself.. Being depressed is a 'side effect' which isn't great but I know it could be worse.

    Everything makes sense now!

    I was reading different posts on this forum and came across the avoidant personality disorder and didn't know what it was. So I googled it and it's basically the story of my life. Not sure where to take it from here but it is so good to put a name to this feeling of just not being quite right...

    Just curious, do you have any strategies for dealing with regret? I *know* I have so many things to be grateful for plus I know that things could always be worse... but I can't seem to get over regretting things I didn't do, did do, or wish I had done. And yet I'm unable to do anything about it...

    Hello after 6 years

    I spent some time on this forum back in 2012 / 13 but things have been pretty bad lately so ... I'm back. It's weird but just reading some posts yesterday calmed me down in a way that I didn't expect (shared misery / I'm not the only one etc ). Back then I thought life couldn't be more...

    talking to the supervisor...

    I got a skype meeting with my thesis supervisor tomorrow and I don't know what to say. I can't ask him questions about what to do because a) he's not the kind of guy who would help me anyways and b) how can I tell him that I literally don't know what to do? I can't talk to bosses, teachers...

    I've been thinking a lot in the last few weeks about where I wanna spend my life and I came to that conclusion that there's no way I'm gonna raise my kids (or get some cats, more like hahaha) in the same place where I was born. Sooo... the only thing to do is get the hell out of here and move to...

    afraid of getting old

    I'm having a panic attack about getting old and not changing at all. I go on a diet every few weeks. I 'start a new life' every few weeks. I quit binge eating every few weeks. And surprise surprise I'm still the same old me, after years and years of starting to make myself over. So many of my...

    I have to stop being weird

    ..around people who like me! Last night a friend of mine hosted a party. I knew most of the other guests and was actually really happy to see them. And they were happy to see me, but once they told me that I got really ackward. One guy told me that he thought I was "awesome" from the first...
