    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I have decided to revisit this site and to actively contribute to discussions. My last post was one year ago. it feels like life has stood still, all of the hard work that I have done with the help of my therapist and psychiatrist has seemed in vein. I am back in that same place right now. i haven't slept 5 hours in 5 days. I don't know what to do. i am invisible. It feels like no one can see me. No one wants to talk to me I feel like a burden to those who are supposed to be helping me. I've bee in this place too long. The world is becoming so scary to me. I thought i wanted to be in a shell, no that I am I want out, but I'm so afraid. afraid of what others think. Unsure of my possibilities. I just want someone to talk to that cares about me, that won't judge me or that won't be me on a time table or a schedule because my moods are unpredictable, they come and go. what am I afraid of.

    Welcome Back - glad you came. Judgement isn't passed here, we all have things we are working on as well. Sleep sounds like the big issue right now. When I'm not getting much my thinking becomes confused, fogged and the hard work on me becomes a poor effort. Hoping you get in a big nap today. There's plenty of group hugs for all here.

    Everyone is moving away from my, my family, my friends, associates, co-workers, It even seems my therapists hates to see me coming. I just want to feel like I belong to something right now.

    I can't add anything except I've been where you are on a regular basis, even to the point of thinking a therapist hated treating me. But this is a good place to be when things seem darkest.

    Take care.

    Hey dwashvp, it is up to you what you would like to share. everyone takes an interest in those who post you just need to let us know how we can help support you. Even if it is just to chat about the weather, that is fine too.

    Hi dwashvp and Welcome -

    You will notice this community has a variety of discussions going on. Please know you can post just about anything you would like - you can unload if you wish (just be careful about posting triggering thoughts), talk about how you are feeling, your struggles, or just talk about what you have planned for the day.

    Also, please know you can reach out to others who are struggling, that is, if you are at a place where you feel you can help others.

    This is a place for support, to talk about coping, to talk about meds and treatment or just talk about whatever you want.

    I am so sorry you are struggling and hope you feel welcome and comfortable to post more about yourself and how you are doing.

    We may not have all the answers but will do the best we can to help.

    Elizabeth
