anyone else go back and forth between staying and quitting? I’ve pretty much made up my mind to quit twice and ended up changing it. Seems like such a drastic and daunting task to go thru with (contd)

I keep thinking I’m getting burnt out, but think it’s the crash from my ADHD meds wearing off. Anyone else feel this?

I have an addictive personality and loads of bad habits. They just amplify and it’s hard for me to resist whenever I feel depressed. Anyone have any advice to overcome it? It’s come to the point where

I really just want someone to like me for me. I have never been in a relationship and I feel like I can’t connect with people the way I do with my friends. I haven’t felt truly alone until now.

I am starting to wonder if I am on the autism spectrum. My daughter got diagnosed with autism, she is very high functioning. All her traits seem so similar to mine. How can I find out for sure?

Has anyone successfully gotten back together with an ex? Is it just doomed to fail again (in my case for a 3rd time), or do you have a success story to share?

Just left a group chat of friends who are now pretty much acquaintances. I haven't talked to them in a long time and I felt bad receiving updates of them hanging out without me.

I just realized that I push people away/hurt them unintentionally. I lost many friends and thought that the problem is them, not me, until now. Does anyone have the same problem? How did you fix it?

Calm currently has a deal ($150 for lifetime subscription). With Deloitte well being subsidy it comes down to 75. Is this worth it? P.s I have headspace subscription until Jan end. Didn't use it much.

Has anyone ever taken a break/broken up with someone you love because of depression? I feel like I have no energy for a relationship despite my love for them. Or is this just the depression talking?
