Again? Oh god... I'm so sorry, Tuor.
Has she been getting a lot of therapy?

I'm not really sure, it doesn't seem like it was too intensive/productive if this is still happening. Or else her medication isn't strong enough.

I'm sorry, Tuor :(


Could it be the medication? Sometimes it makes you feel more depressed, or not getting enough. I would definitely look into new help, though. Especially what you said about the stupid nurse before.

Well, she is now at the children's hospital in Vancouver, so it should be a bit more specialized. She's in a psych ward with 6 or 7 other adolescents

I hope she has a great, long recovery. Has she been depressed for a long time or has it come up recently?

I first learned that she self harmed about a year ago, so for sure that long, I guess, but I don't know how long she may have been before that

I'm a lonely virgin who has next to no friends in the real world. The reason being is that everyone there shows hostility towards me and I have zero interest in the majority what they do which regards hunting and playing nothing else but call of duty.

Guys, I think I found my kryptonite.

Someone being furious with me while being the vaguest as humanly possible.

Hits me right at my center, and then I lose all my superpowers.

But seriously, a friend of a friend of mine, the friend being the depressed lass I mentioned some time ago as well as being a friend of her bf, suddenly exploded on me in a group call and kicked me. I tried to get a hold of the lass, but she wasn't answering, so I tried her bf. He said he was confused as well about it and it sounded like he was drudging up the past, even though he'd been pretty chummy since what happened. A bit personal, so not something I'm willing to share. And it wasn't even something he was involved with per-say. Her bf said I must have done something recently because he was spouting about me doing something as well as other heinous things that I just can't account for and that everyone felt this way. He wouldn't let me get a word in edge wise and it's got me flipping out worried that I screwed up something again.

So here I am wollowing in dispair thinking I did something new that's got people's ire against me... It's not pleasant. If I at least knew what the hell he was talking about this would be 10 times easier to deal with. Leaving me with my thoughts to ponder the infinite things I could have done wrong is the worst kind of torture to give me...

Anywho, just drama... It'll blow over... hopefully...

You're right, that does sound very vague. Hell, if her Boyfreind doesn't even know what the hell happened, then that just broadens the problem.

I feel like you are missing 80% of the story but taking 100% of the flack for it. Not a very comfortable situation I'm sure, but once it blows over it can either be buried and forgotten or she can bring it up months from now, laughing about what it was all about.

Also when you say she "kicked" you, do you mean she removed you from whatever group setting you were in or she literally got up and kicked you with her foot?

That really sounds vague but maybe the problem is not something you did but with someone you did it, and I agree with Bird you may be missing part of the story maybe a pretty big part.

If you don't like it then stop it? Think about what you're saying before you say it?

I think I'm an asshole. I counter it by attempting to be funny, and as honest as I can.
Being serious, I find being honest helps a great deal. Course these terms are pretty broad for me.

Works pretty well then, imho.

I don't think you're an asshole though. I probably am, but I don't care.

So this is a thread where people agonise to each other about what is happening in there life? Interesting, I wonder who would come up with such a thing? They probably had a lot to get off of their chest.

This thread was created because we had a couple of people who made threads for their issues or whose emotional issues would "leak" into other threads, which would be met with either support or mockery, depending on the situation. This thread was created so that people could just come here instead to vent about their problems without worrying about getting unpleasant or trollish responses (...or at least the thread tried to keep it as minimal as possible).

Since the last time I posted about my sister she visited again and tried to overdose on medication. She's visiting for today, going back to the hospital, and then visiting tomorrow. We had to clean out her whole room to make sure there was nothing in there she could hurt herself with and pack up like all the sharp things in the house basically. Good thing we did, she had like two dozen razorblades hidden in various places in her room. We also have to have all the medicine in the house in a safe that my mom bought. I'm exhausted.

I think I found the reason why i've been acting how I have lately. It's my house.

Lately, my mom's been going through heart stuff and she just got stints put in to thin the clogs. It wiped her recent memory. I talked with her about a mixtape she helped me organize, and she said she didn't remember helping. Nearly broke my heart. Gramma's being so damn overbearing about everything lately. Especially with Mom. She's always telling me to take it easy on her.

The problem is that I've been dealing with Mom having health problems for years now, but I want to do things now. I want to see Watsky in concert. I want to get a job at a movie theatre. I want to go driving so I can finally get my license. But no, my mother has to be on the couch, sleeping her pains off. She can't help me all the time, not when I need it. I hate it. But it's selfish of me to put my needs over my mother's, right? After all, she's got her own shit going on. We're all humans with our own needs.

But fucking hell, I want to feel like I'm growing up.

The feeling of being held back has been affecting my schooling. I'm falling behind. I'm skimping my assignments and hoping I can get in a fight with this asshole in math class. I was pretty damn rude to my teacher too. So now I'm feeling lower and lower on both ends.

Maybe none of this is a big deal. Maybe I'm overreacting. There's worse situations in the world, I'll be fine, right? I don't even know anymore...

That's really rough. It's enough to get through one episode but to have to constantly and actively be vigilant like that... exhausted is probably understating it.

And Maru that's a hard situation too. Obviously you do owe a certain duty of care to your mother. Maybe you won't be able to go out regularly, but you should be able to every so often. Your mother is in bad health, but it's not healthy for you either if your entire life revolves only around her health. Is there no one else? No siblings or relatives that can give you some respite to go out for a night? Gramma isn't in shape for it or something? Part of growing up is learning how to balance all these responsibilities.

To be honest, I do not feel I have any room to talk in this particular thread. What bothers me is minute in comparison to some of the issues that have been shared here, I realise that.

I consider myself a selfish and self centered person. That has always come naturally to me, and right now myself and my goals are my only concern. That is not what I consider my problem. My problem is that the person I care about most at this moment in time, is not up to much. I would say, pretty shit. I have no drive to socialise with anyone. I have my goals but I have no drive to push myself towards achieving them. I can not remember the last time I really worked for something. I guess what I mean is that having no ties to anyone and being self centered is pretty unfulfilling when your self is a pathetic human being. I just don't know what to do to get myself out of this rut. So I thought maybe someone of the people who like to talk about others problems might have some genuinely good advice. I want to be one of those people who is proud of what they accomplish in a day.
