I wish there was someone in my life that understood fully just how hard it is to go through these things, I wish they educated people on just how real these problems are

I agree completely. There is a horrible stigma around mental illnesses. It’s important for us to fight that stigma though, and educate our friends and family about how serious and real the things we are going through are.
I am so sorry that you haven’t found anyone in your life that understands. I promise you aren’t alone in this though. And I know you will find someone that will give you all of the love and support in the world. Until then, feel free to vent to me. I will always understand.
Stay strong!
I’m here for you.

Hello! My wife suffers from Emetophobia (fear of vomit) and together we created a new no spoiler movie site that gives people with phobias (spiders,snakes,clowns,puppets,dolls,vomit,needles,dentist,blood) the ability to watch movies without fear. We give you the when, how graphic and the duration of each scene that occurs in each movie.

This is wonderful! As someone with emetophobia I know that this website is very helpful.

heyy, i suffer with panic attacks and have done for 3 years (im 15) recently ive been suffering with spells of depression and it feels so horrible like i just hit a brick wall. i dunno what to do:(( x

Oh anon, I am so sorry that you are going through such a hard time.
You’re not alone in this, I promise. And you are so much stronger than you realize.
Anxiety and depression will try to make you think you’re weak. But they are so wrong.
You are in control, you are the boss. Not your disorders.
Recovery is a journey, and there will be bumps and stops and hills and valleys. But one thing is for sure, and that’s that you will make it through it all.
Something that might help is remembering to take time for yourself. It’s only to take a break and a step back. You are more than allowed to. Find things that make you feel safe, happy, and relaxed and make use of them. Give yourself pamper nights. It’s important to let yourself have that time to wind down. And you deserve time off!
Take it one day at a time and applaud yourself for waking up each morning. You’re incredible, and brave, and so very loved.
Stay strong! You can do this.
I’m here for you.

Take a moment to congratulate yourself. You are so strong and you deserve to acknowledge that. Look at all the hard days you have made it through. You are here, you are alive, you are surviving. That is something to be proud of. You have so many good days ahead of you. Every morning is the start of a new day of opportunities for you. Just say yes! And remember how strong you are. You’ve come so far, and this is only the beginning of your story.

Today my Grandmother gave me this bracelet. It hit really close to home. In the box was a card that said, “Through December 2014, 20% of proceeds received by Alex and Ani from selling the Peace of Mind bangle, with a minimum donation of $20,000, will be donated to the PeaceLove Foundation , a creative voice for mental illness, which offers life-changing expressive arts workshops to communities in need. PeaceLove is the first symbol of hope and support for the millions impacted by mental illness.” I think that this bracelet serves as a way to unite those of us affected by mental illnesses. I’m going to wear it everyday to show my support and love. I love all of you! Let’s end the stigma.
