I am feeling depressed every day. I am having self harm urges. My mom found out about my self harm. Last month she took away the tools I used to self harm with. Last night I was crying for hours and I cried myself to sleep. I feel hopeless.
How can I cope with depression and self harm urges?
Hello, my best friend is going through a severe depression since forever, he is seeing a psychiatrist but he's barely getting better, I really wanna help him, I always talk and listen to him and try to cheer him up but I feel that it's not enough because I'm not seeing an improvement.
Please help and tell me what should I do.
Sorry about the the title, but writing hi, hello or anything like that seems boring and repetitive and i'm also being honest here so...
As you can guess, my username have nothing to do with my actual name. I'm 24 years old with selective mutism, social anxiety and anxiety in general.
I also strugle with low self-esteem, trust- and abandonment issues and depression.
Because of these (and the years of constant bullying that caused most of them), i have a very hard time socializing in any form, which i'm tired of and want to change amongst many other things.
I've already got a vague plan of what i want to change and how to do it and also took steps towards the first course of action, which is ease my general anxiety. Actually i found this site during my research on that and thought - 'Ah! Why not?' - so here i am.
Nice to meet you!
