Hi, guys. My name's Kat and I'm a senior in college.
I've been putting this off for a couple of years now. But its recently developed to a point that I can't ignore it any longer. I think I've lost myself somewhere along the way. My mind isn't my own anymore. I live i a fog, I can't function and I no longer enjoy life anymore. Everything is a struggle. About a month ago, there was an awful accident at my job and someone was hurt. The accident happened because I was distracted and unable to react in time. This incident just confirmed what my family has been telling me for a while now, I need to get some help. I realized that in the past two years I've lost the majority of my friends, I've started a painful downward spiral in school, and I've lost my sense of self. I feel hollow. I can't deal with anything. I've put off even checking my email for weeks on end because I can't deal. I use to write on a daily basis in the hopes of someday being published, I use to go out and practice photography, I use to volunteer and do things for the community. Now I can barely handle my job and school. So, I worked up the strength to make an appointment with a counselor. This forum has made me realized that I'm really not the only one who feels like this. It's so nice to meet everyone!
Looking forward to getting my life back!
Kat

Welcome Kat!

So glad you have joined us! You are lucky to seek help while you are still going to school and working. Some people wait until they cannot even do those things before they talk to someone about their problems. Then, they have more pieces to pick up. I hope you resolve your troubles soon.

Take Care

yes there are real tools. the thing is it's hard work, and at times you will feel defeated and like none of it is helpful or working. but despite that keep working at it and you will gradually start to feel better. that's the good news. you're still seeing glimpses and i think that is something very important for you to hang on to. i too have had similar feelings of doom and gloom for a long time and when i started to come out of it i realized how much time i had lost and also felt it was...

Hate the Holidays? Here Are 8 Ways to Cope and Find Joy PsychCentral Dec 15, 2021 The holidays are hyped up to be “the most wonderful time of the year.” And for some, they are. But the pressure to be merry and jolly alongside the rest of the world becomes extra heavy when you feel anything but that. For me, each holiday season carries the weight of childhood drama, stress, and sadness. As I share my experiences with others, I’ve learned that I’m not alone in this feeling. I’ve heard...
