how to do homework when depressed?

pretty much what the title says. I am severely depressed, passively suicidal, thinking of death almost constantly, no motivation for almost anything. however, I'd like to assure everyone that I am completely safe. any tips for doing homework in this state?

trying to help out a friend?

there is a dear friend of mine who is having trouble with their parents. they are nearly sixteen years old and as many sixteen-year-olds do, they want to be more of their own person: they want to wear makeup occasionally, use instagram, go to alcohol-free parties because there are never parties wher...

Re: top surgery?

thank you for responding. I was mostly asking for people who have actually had top surgery, but I do appreciate your response.

off-kilter

I am so freaking tired last week was my first day of school and I introduced myself using my preferred name, passing it off as a nickname. now I'm scared my teachers will meet my parents or I'll meet a friend at the supermarket. the name doesn't even feel right for some reason. this is my first time...

Re: on the fence

I get what you mean about the eldest sibling mentality. I've been working on understanding that I can't control how others feel or what they do. My parents know that certain relatives don't like my haircut very much, but enough relatives think it's cute that my parents don't think it's too big a dea...

Re: on the fence

Thanks for clearing that up. I know they care about me. I care about them a lot and I don't want to confuse or distress them, but you're right. They'll never understand everything about me. Maybe if I come out to them, then they'll come to terms with this sooner? I'm the eldest kid in my family and ...

Re: on the fence

A couple years ago I told my mom that I liked girls, before I started really questioning my gender. She seemed alright with it, although she didn't understand many LGBTQ+ issues, and told my dad (with my permission). The next day my dad sat me down and explained the Kinsey scale. They're both pretty...

on the fence

I'm debating on whether or not to come out to my family as genderfluid. Like seriously debating back and forth between a couple of screaming lawyers in my head. To be clear, I'm in a safe atmosphere. My parents are fairly supportive and my siblings will back me up no matter what. I have a slideshow ...

What is something you like about yourself?

Hello there! I know I and many others on this site have suffered from self-esteem issues in the past. I've been feeling pretty bad about myself lately, which is rough. My therapist told me that it might help to think about something I like about myself, and I thought I'd come here to see if it could...

Re: Vent: I miss my delusions

I'm not sure if I'm ready to talk about my delusions with a therapist. It's almost funny. It's easier to talk about this kind of thing on an anonymous message board, but talking about my thoughts and feelings with someone I know, trust, and care about? That's difficult. It feels stupid, but I feel l...

Re: Vent: I miss my delusions

Thanks for responding. I do indeed have a therapist as well as a psychiatrist. Back in November, I was Baker-acted because my psychiatrist figured I wasn't safe at home at that time. She was probably right, haha. Then from late December to early March, I spent some time in a program to work on my me...

Vent: I miss my delusions

Trigger warning: mentions of mental illness, self-harm, and delusions ahead. When I was around nine years old, I started having dreams. Thoughts. I felt there was something about me that was just different, or special, in a way that didn't apply to others. I had messages in my brain from spirits in...

Re: Self-doubt and self-criticism

Thanks for your reply, Carly. I'm not quite wondering about my gender, as I'm pretty sure about being genderfluid since I've undergone all of the symptoms (I'm not sure how to word this better, I know it sounds like an illness the way I've said it and I know it is not and I didn't mean for it to sou...

Self-doubt and self-criticism

I am genderfluid. Or so I think. But sometimes I feel so confused and lost. When I feel masculine, I wonder if I'm transgender. Sometimes I'm so dysphoric it hurts and other times I feel fine enough that I can barely remember the pain. I do feel feminine on occasion and when I do I feel like a liar....

Kind of confused...

I'm on the autism spectrum and I've always found it difficult to differentiate between romantic and platonic attraction and love. I think in the romantic respect I don't feel as brightly or as strongly as others do. I'm not aromantic, I have had legitimate crushes before, but I just feel like there'...
