I am a positive person. The next person to tell me to be happy...I am positive I will smack the smile off of their faces. Make sense?

my favorite is when i hear that I'm being "selfish" or any other person with mental illnesses AND every time I talk to anyone its always "are you going to therapy?" well yea i am but i thought since youre nice and my friend i could talk to you for once about something not artificial (because its usually no negative intent I just like to verbalize things I do that better)

honestly I stopped talking to anyone except my therapist after that. For anything negative or stress related. Many people even family think I yell at them when I am actually "depressed" - people hovering and smothering is what makes my depression and anxiety worse. (and I know I been on a bunch of different meds since 18 and been to therapy since 13) - I am finally at a point where I am happy and healthy except for things beyond my control like any human because of how much of a jerk and bad psycharist for me I have but I love my therapist. Once I knew how to finally help myself and not care whether its what people want of me, I finally feel great (until someone is a jerk, so thats true for anything)..I hate people being fake or cliche when I need encouragement or any help.

anti depression meds do not cure depression they just make life bearable which is why the doctors dont want you on them forever (side effects) although there are some who are on them for life but they do not cure

Thank you, if you look at me you would think I'm so healthy and nothing mentally depression on my part. I wish I was well on the inside and mentally not depressed with high anxiety. You know I've always been a person who has to look nice. I have to have my make-up on, hair comb, etc. (mother's thing) But deep down I do have a lot of problems I mean a lot. Things that I hold in and won't talk about. I think this group is going to do me good for me and you're one person who has helped. Thanks :)
