I literally hate my job. When looking at other jobs, I also feel nothing sounds exciting. It’s all corporate BS making someone else richer.

Here goes nothing ... decided to sign up for an ayahuasca retreat. Battling depression/anxiety for >9yrs, on meds and therapy but maybe this will help too. Anyone done this?

I have been experiencing a lack of focus, inability to work and general symptoms I would describe as depression since starting WFH. I’ve noticed the brain fog/lack of focus is getting worse for example taking several attempts to write a correct check with no errors and I forgot an oven mitt and went to pull out a rack with my bare hand. I’ve never spoken to a therapist but is this normal with depression. I not sure what is going on and how to resolve it.

Everything that’s happening lately since the start of Covid lockdown has caused me to start re-experiencing a lot of ptsd symptoms that I’ve already worked so hard to recover from. This weekend of violence everywhere has absolutely broken me. Am I fucked? Do I have to go through everything from scratch to keep myself from another breakdown? Is this just my life forever now? I feel so broken as a human.

Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.

How do y’all get over mistakes? I feel like my process of self-reflecting isn’t the best. What I’ve noticed is that I beat myself up a lot and put most of the blame on my own mistakes even when it’s not the case.

Always feeling pissed at everything. Don't express it, but feeling it internally and am regretting so many life choices... Feels like a quarter life crisis - what's the best way out of this?

Quarantine has been making my small DC apartment feel even smaller. My roommate used to be my best friend, but now I just feel trapped and need space. But at the same time I somehow feel like I’m not ready for things to “go back to normal” because I don’t have many friends in this city. I’m scared my depression is going to come back full force. Anyone have tips for making friends when things open up?

Parents are pretty much separating for a while. Mom can’t afford to pay the mortgage herself and now I’m getting pressured to move home and support. Part of me just wants to pay a premium to still live on my own (and support), but weighing the mental pros/cons..

How I stop feeling like a failure? Feel like I am disappointing/letting down everyone from family to colleagues. Like I suck at everything. Don’t know if I am twisting regular feedback into this...

Staying off social media/news/internet is hard during quarantine but getting on is just so heartbreaking, builds anxiety and depressing.

I’m an addict! Been financially struggling since 2017. I have had same threshold of debt (about 12k) since 2016 but I keep spending money on prostitutes and restaurant. Is there any hope for me?

A super toxic friend cut me out of their life. Was really depressed about it until someone told me that the way he treated me isn’t the way friends treat each other. Then I found myself heavily latching to my girlfriend. I think I might have codependency issues? Anyone who has had codependency issues, what did you do to stop codependent behavior?
