I don’t know how to tell my husband how bad things really are with my depression. On average I have been showering once a week, brushing my hair only when I have to go out but if it doesn’t look messy then I wont worry about brushing it at all. I brush my teeth probably twice a week and gargle mouthwash twice a week, I spend most of my days in bed and am tired ALL THE TIME, I am (trying to) nap more, I just want days to be over so I can just sleep but then I struggle to sleep coz of my RLS and insomnia and I can’t stop thinking out how much I want to change and get pissed at myself for wasting another day but then I do the same thing the next day. I am finding it harder to find joy in the things I usually love and one of them is music. I am not dancing to music as much as I used to, I seem to tune it out more. I am in chronic pain every damn day, partly because of a deformity and partly because of my weight. My weight causes more pain on my hips, my knees and my feet. I have plantar fasciitis and heel spurs, I have just recently recovered from a cuboid displacement. All these issues effect my mobility coz of the absolute pain. I want to lose weight but I have been diagnosed with Obsessive compulsive eating disorder. All I think about is food even though I feel nauseous from the idea of eating or from overeating. I will be eating my lunch and all I can think of is my next meal. I feel absolutely DISGUSTED in myself and beat myself up pretty much every night. But for some stupid reason my brain doesn’t think about ANY iota of that the next day and I just carry on like every other day. I have done therapy for fucking years, I have done cognitive behavioural therapy, a few different antidepressants, meditation, hypnotherapy, many diets, shakes, positive affirmations, looked into religion (hey I am desperate), and I am pretty sure there are other things but I just can’t think of them right now. My next step is a vision board and last week my mum, my brothers and myself have started a weight loss challenge. I’m not doing that well, I have replaced a lot of bad foods with good foods but I am still snacking a lot. Next week my brother and I are signing up for the gym coz we don’t want to go by ourselves. Anyway sorry to just stop here, I don’t know what else to say. Good night.

You. Are. My. Hero. The fact that you are here, you are admitting this, and it sounds like you have a good family life, THAT’S F*****G AMAZING! I can’t even imagen the type of strength it takes to do that with depression. Your comments always make me smile, and you seem like a really great person!As for telling your husband, I have no experience but, just tell him. He wants to know. Trust me on that. I realize you probably won’t read this novel, and it probably won’t help, but I really hope you do and it does! You are incredible!

I have said this on: https://www.boredpanda.com/hey-pandas-what-is-the-most-paranormal-thing-that-has-ever-happened-to-you/ and I will say it again. Why do people keep giving others downvotes for no reason at all? I find it stupid as how someone could make others feel bad- for just sharing their story??? I know that people agree with me on this, and I feel like people should have empathy for others as getting downvotes can hurt peoples feelings.

Turning seventeen in a few weeks, got the same fears. Maybe try reaching out to friends to see what they're doing, or if there's anything you can tag along with from time to time. Look up the requirements to get a license in your state, and see if there's anyway get them. Maybe try talking to your parents about it? (I know that's sometimes really not a good route to take, but worth a try?) Some schools have after school workshops to help better prepare you for living on your own. Maybe even try talking to a school guidance counselor (Sounds weird, but they have good resources most times) If you're going to college, maybe try convincing your parents to let you live in a dorm the first year to get some experience, if not, see what club or activities you can join at college or in your community. Maybe even volunteer work? Wish you the best, and good luck.

If it's hurting you, them you need to tell them. Next time they do this, don't engage in it. Instead, calmly and politely tell them that you really don't like doing that anymore because it hurts you. Maybe give them an example of how they hurt you once. Also be sure to tell them that you're also trying to make sure that you don't end up hurting them. Ask if you have and tell them sincerely that you're sorry. Sometimes, contrary to what you think, things are to sided.

I’m 17 and a senior in high school and for the last 5 years I have been struggling with my sexuality. It’s a very confusing thing to think about. I am a girl who likes girls and I’ve just recently came to terms about it. But I can’t be who I am, or who I want the be because my parents are so small minded. I am a Christian who loves god but I also love girls and I don’t think god would condemn me for it. I feel like I’m alone in this journey and I need help.

I'm struggling to label my sexuality. For years I've been sure I'm bi and I've had experiences with guys and girls that seemed to back this up. However, recently, I've come to realise that I just don't like getting physical. With anyone. I feel absolutely nothing even when I'm with people I have very strong feelings for.
Maybe I'm too inexperienced or maybe I haven't found the right person. But its always a little worry in the back of my mind.

So I can tell you that you might be asexual, I'm not saying you definitely are but it's a possibility. Some people just don't feel the urge or the need to get physical with someone, some people just have to meet the right person. I hope this helps at least a little bit

My partner and I have been together almost 4 years. We have a condo (rental), a cat, furniture, a life together. I love him. But this relationship has become so miserable, and so toxic... There's nothing I can do to make him happy except to leave him alone. I'm basically not "allowed" to get emotional about the state of our relationship or he explodes and storms off. We have had the breakup conversation so many times it seems cliché. And now it seems like things are finally at the end. He's got a wealthy family, and if we part ways and move out, he has no worries about what will happen to his life. In fact, he's convinced it will get better. I on the other hand send money to my mom, have ruined my credit trying to keep this household afloat (with zero recognition for it), and couldn't get a lease again if my life depended on it. IE if the relationship fails, I am next to homeless. I even dropped out of grad school 3 years ago and started working in restaurants to support us when he was unemployed. He's talked so much shit to our mutual friends about me I feel like I don't even have any anymore. It feels like my whole life is just falling apart, one step at a time.

I had a friend once. Lets call him Bob. I need this story to have some humor. Me and Bob were inseparable. We were literally best friends. But when we went to middle school, he kept trying to go to the popular kids. The kids who were admired at school. He tried to wear the same clothes as them, fell into the same amines, played the same games, read the same books, and watched the same movies. But they saw him as a nerd. I stayed with what I liked. Harry Potter, Minecraft, and Marvel. He kept getting rejected. I tried to convince him to stop but he hated me by then. Thought he became a nerd by being with me. I left. Distanced myself from him. Didn't talk to him. I had other friends. He got depressed. He got hooked on vape, thought it would make the other kids think he was badass. It didn't. His grades got sloppy. He got pressured. And one day, he was dead. Jumped off the highest thing he could find, with a rope around his neck. It just keeps bothering me, could I have helped him if I had been there? Could I have saved him?

If you mean inappropriate things because of your age, that's pretty normal. Sexuality is a hard topic, even today, that adults sometimes struggle with sharing or understanding. If you have someone you trust, talk to them. If you don't there are lots of healthy resources online. Don't be ashamed that you have these thoughts or desires. As long as you approach it in a healthy and safe way (years from now, engaging in acts at such a young age is a whole other thing) there is nothing wrong with that. If inappropriate consists of images or videos of people, animals or children being hurt or forced. Talk to someone NOW. There is help out there, keep talking until someone listens.

This is hard for me to say. Anyway, my parents are very devotional Hindus. I grew up believing it. I mean, it's the only religion-like concept that I've been introduced to. But recently, I've been having doubts. They're always at the back of my mind. I read the Mahabharata, (it's like a bible, but in Hinduism) I read the whole entire thing, and the first thing I thought was that I believed none of it. The sad thing is that I learn devotional dance too, and I always feel so guilty doing it, knowing that I don't believe in the stories that I'm representing with my dancing. I don't want to tell my parents. Truthfully, my mom and I don't have the best relationship and religion is something that we connected to. Without it, what would happen? I'm scared, and it feels horrible to have to pretend to believe something you don't. I just don't know what to do.

Hey Sophie, I know how you feel. Trust me. Sometimes it feels like we're underappreciated, and it doesn't feel good.Do remember one thing though. Character. Character is what you do when no one is looking. Sometimes it's okay to not get credit for what we do because helping someone out can feel good either way. Edit: Also, even though the whole world might not remember you when you're gone, that doesn't mean you haven't made an impact on someones life. Trust me, someone out there is waiting for you to change their world.

I think I might have anxiety? Like clinical anxiety. I’ve alway been a worried person, but it’s gotten out of hand. Twice now, I’ve had moments when I’m super anxious and scared to the point that I had to work hard to make myself leave my room. I also have this thing where I feel overwhelmed by really small things, sometimes just noises. But, I’m not sure if I’m overreacting or not. I know I’m stressed, but is it a real problem? And how do I let my parents know that I’m at least super worn out, or at most need to see a therapist?

If you still go to school, try to talk to some of your teachers. Most will disappoint you, but you might find a gem among them. If you go to church, that can be an option as well. There are also online support groups. The main thing is not to just accept that things will never get better. If you keep trying sooner or later you will find the person/thing/group that will help you do better. Plus: as much as it can seem that way, no, almost nobody's life is much better than yours. Their issues are just less apparent from your perspective.

I'm so freaking worthless! i have no expeirince with the outside world and I've been able to wriggle my way out of any chance to get some because I'm horribly afraid of saying/doing something stupid. I hate myself and i can't say anything not only because my parents have isolated me from the handful of people who cared about me, but also because i know from expeirince that they will leave me in the dust when I'm not happy or cheery enough. I have no coping mechanisms left except hurting myself, mentally and physically. I'm terrified of the idea that no one is coming to save me, no one is going to start loving me unless i make it happen and i just don't have the heart to keep hoping it'll get better in 2 years when i move out. I don't want to tell anybody because i feel pathetic and i don't want to see that look on peoples faces when they realize that I've been hiding all the bad parts from them. sorry but i had to dump it...

Insomnia.

I try to fall asleep, but I can't sleep. Sleep deprivation is now just my routine. Even when I do manage to fall asleep for a few glorious moments, I awake throughout the night. Well, that and the fact that I'm very judgmental of myself and I just need my head to shut up for five minutes, so I can hear myself think, really THINK. And when I talk, it feels like no one ever listens. I want to change but I can't, really can't. I feel like I'm just running from everything, all my problems, and I run because I know I cannot hide.

It's keeping me up, everyone telling me that I should give up.

Long story short, I'm a mess.

I'm afraid I can't help with the insomnia, but as a response to "I want to change but I can't": Have patience with yourself. If you want to change, believe me, then you can - but it takes time. A lot of time. Recognize that that's normal. Be as patient with yourself as you would be with your best friend going through the same struggle. And most importantly, Don't Give Up! There will be good days and bad days. These things are never linear. You can't take the bad days as some sort of sign that it won't work. Instead you have to look at the frequency and degree of the good days and over a long time you should see that rise. You can do this!

A friend and I have been making this graphic novel for about half a year now. To be honest, I cannot say why we've been doing it, but it's important to her and she really seems to be enjoying it. Lately, due to Covid, we haven't been able to see each other at all but she's still working on the project. I feel like a horrible friend for saying this, but I really want to pull out. I haven't had an active role in this project in a while, and I have told her a few times that I'll stop procrastinating and start helping her again, but I just can't find the energy to. I have a lot of chaos in my own life right now, but I do have a lot of time to help, but I just can't find the want to do it. I feel really guilty and like I am letting her down, but I just don't want to do this anymore. I've always been a people-pleaser, so that might be why I feel so guilty but I just don't know what to do. Am I overreacting? Am I just being cowardly for not speaking my mind?

Nothing really bad, but do want to stop bothering friends with it. There's a guy I've liked for sometime now. We've never done anything beyond kissing, oddly, and that's always been on and off. He graduated last year, and I thought that the summer was going to be the end of things because of school and age. Heck, we talked and agreed that while dating is an option, now is not the time because it'd cause commotion with friends, and my family likely won't take it well either. Haven't seen him since July, but we keep in touch here and there over text. He started flirting again, and I am at a loss. I like him, but I'm pretty sure this is just for another kissing session which I'm open to, but makes me question if it'll ever go farther than that. I just want to do something with him other than that. I haven't seen him for a while, and it'd be nice to catch up.

If you respect yourself, he'll get the message to respect you........ If you just want a make out session, enjoy. But realize that making out may be as far as it goes, and be prepared to hold your head high and walk away. You sound like you're young. Trust me, there are more and better fish in the sea.

You need to distance yourself from a violent person. You could end up hurt or worse. It is up to her to seek help to handle her anger management before she ends up in jail.

i have a screen addiction. Yes, this is ironic. I have spent probably about 2000 hours on youtube. (rough guess) and I have no idea how to stop. i feel like a waste and a faliure. I wish that I could just stop.

You are not alone. Lol. Try doing some different activities like reading, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, etc. It can be a start in the right direction. Talk to someone you can trust, as this can be a serious problem.

My parent's divorce. The house is different, a lot of things I held sentimental are gone, my mom's rules have gotten stricter since he's left. I look at spaces where his things were and it makes me sad. I get sad at random, sometimes for no apparent reason. And I have 2 projects to do. And to make it worse, my own friends sometimes doubt my sexuality and ask very probing questions and it makes me uncomfortable because if i don't answer they say im not who i am, they say its a phase, etc.

Can relate a bit to this. Divorce is hard. Try reaching out to a school counselor about it, and see if they have any resources to help or talk to some close friends about it. Maybe try talking to your mom too? Best I can say is ignore the questions your friends are asking for now. You don't have to answer if you don't feel comfortable about it. Take a deep breath and get to work one those projects. Bet you'll do great. Good luck and best wishes. :)

I don't know how people can lie to your face even when presented with proof and then be rude to you. How do they sleep at night? On the other hand, I can't sleep, I can't work, I can't eat, I can't do anything if I feel I have been unjust to someone or if I have hurt someone. I can't break anyone's trust, just the very possibility of me being in a position to cause someone to face a loss even if it's $3.00 makes me panic. Recently someone was very rude to me and tried to put the blame on me, I can't be rude back and sometimes I feel like I'm just an easy target.

I was bullied all my life, not only be fellow students but also the teachers... simply for being silent and shy - It started when my dad died when i was 5 and kids threw away my stuff, tried to drown me, beat me, locked me into places... yet i was the anti-social one for not playing around with them infront of the teachers...
when my dad died his side of the family literally vanished and abandoned my mum, me and my sister...
I worked all my life rly hard at school, was alway at top of my class, despite the bullying, got scholarships for good private highschools and was about to attend university to become a lawyer and work hard to repay my mum all her efforts and to stick it to all those a-holes that bullied me and made out lives even harder... but instead of attendind college as planned I got very sick... and the doctors fucked up... that was 12 yrs ago... despite having medical prove as MRIs and such, handicapped support denies me any help, and bcs i can't even get the freacking paper that confirms that i am handicapped I am still only working towards my bachelor's degree... 12 yrs later.... I might finally be able to get it... and bcs of my andicap I can't work, I can't travel, I'm in chronic pain constantly, and due to all that my poor mum still has to support me, she's 65, heatsick and worked all her life like a maniac to support me and my sister... and even now I am just a clutz on her leg...... I feel so sooo angry and frustrated and sad... 12 yrs and I ahve still accomplished nothing... and even if i manage to finally get my degree... who will hire a 32 yrs old criple wo can't work even 6 hrs shifts, has only a BA and no notworthy workexperience (only was able to do a little part time job here and there, like Mc, library, H&M...). Worst thing is, nobody believes me when I say that I am handicapped and in pain bcs on the outside I look normal, with clothes on..., nobody knows that bcs of my handicap i gained 20 kilo i can't shed and have to take a bunch of meds and can't do anything that i used to do or would love to do... i literally lost all my friends bcs of this 8wo apparently weren't rly friends to begin with) and eventhough i have a wonderful boyfriend who is willing to support me (eventhough he sometimes forgets i am sick too) I just feel guilty... for shifting the burden from my mum onto him... he deserves better...
Every day I just keep going bcs I can't possible let my mum down even more... once she's gone... idk... we will see i guess...

Hey fellow pandas,

The fact that I think I'm ugly is eating me up. Sadly, we live in a world where people are judged by the way they look. I recently DM'd a guy wondering if he wanted to meet for coffee and I was (nicely) rejected. The guy seems great but I feel like he said no because he thinks I'm not pretty enough. I feel lonely and feel like I need an SO in my life, What do I do? I have this need to feel pretty but I just feel like I'm ugly and I don't know what to do.

One thing that frustrates me is navigating Bored Panda. I seldom get back to post where I commented or someone responded. I'd like to be able to respond to people who commented on something I wrote. Clicking notifications or comments under my profile just takes me back to the first post in the list. Sometimes, when I'm in the mood, I will scroll through the 60+ posts, but that gets old.

Honestly, all the thoughts and prayers people have sent Trump when he and Melania came down with covid-19.

How should I put this? wishing him well means wishing harm on all the people who will be harmed by his continued ignorance. They're now saying an estimated 400k+ will die because of this, and he's doing everything he can to spread it faster. his wellness is coming at the cost of hundreds of thousands of others, and that's on just one thing. (okay, just for the record, that study is including loosely-explained deaths and attributing it as 'related to Covid'., more or less.)

There is this guy Sam (not his real name) who I really like. A lot. And I want to tell my friends, but they would all either make fun of me or be mad because they don't like him. And my only friend who I could tell just told me he likes me so now I can't tell him either, and I really just want to tell Sam I like him, but I don't know how, and I don't know who he likes, or even whether or not he is single, but it's so hard to keep this to myself when every time I see him all I can think of is me holding his hand, laying on his chest, snuggling next to him at marching band when I get cold. I just wanted to let this out. Thank you for taking the time to read this and listen to my stupid 14 year old problems

These problems are not stupid, I am thirteen and have the same ones. I know Corona might mess this up but if you think telling him how you feel would make things better than go for it. It's ok to be embarrassed if he says no, but almost everyone is having or has had these emotions, basically you are not alone. Just tell him, it's probably the only way to get these feeling in your chest.

I feel like a an idiot. When my grandfather died my mother also lost her job so we had to move in with her friend who I love but I know she won't be alive by 2021. My cat went to live with my friend who has cancer and got sick from the cat hair so the cat went to the mothers said friend's son but he died a few weeks after and I lost it. 4 months later my dad died of similar cancer my grandfather did but i didn't cry at all because was an asshole to us, he left when I was younger after hurting us, stealing from us, and drinking too much. After his funeral I saw my family after 7 1/2 years on his side. I feel like a dick for crying over a cat not a day. Also when my poor lil Dusty (Cat) died, I was at a summer 3 day 2 night trip. idk why but I had panic attacks every night and wanted to go home but my mom was at home without gas money and it was a 4 hour drive. Not too long after that my Girlfriend swallowed a handful of pills and I have nobody. My motto is A meme a day keeps the depression away and you can't cry if your laughing so I try to be funny all the time. If you like memes add me on insta if you want (Jackis2c00l4u_), I really don't know why I wrote my life story but I really needed to tell someone, this is a lot for a 14 year old to handle (I turned 14 on October 6th) So adios, and if you see this and add me please tell me because I really want someone to talk to. And please forgive if I spelled wrong, I wrote this kinda late at night.

You don't have to tell them anything you don't want to especially if they're not going to understand and just be mean about it. If they love you they'll accept you because Love is in the nature of acceptance.

How do you tell someone they are beautiful without it being weird and awkward? especially if you really like this guy, but nobody knows that. But he has seemed kind of sad lately and you just want him to know how amazing and smart, and kind and beautiful he is, and how he is almost perfect. But also, I don't want him to know I like him. Soo... help please

So, back a long time ago in 4th grade I was sitting my desk. Since the people at my table loved stealing each others pencils, pens, etc. I thought it would be funny if I took someones folder and hid it in my desk. So I did. And I got back to work doing what I was doing, like nothing happened. But I didn't realize that the girl I stole the folder from (of course I would give it back) was crying in the hallway. I felt so bad and it still eats me up to this day.

I just recently confessed to my crush that I liked him. Because of Corona, I had to do it via Gmail. Well, we aren't from the same state the only way I know him is because our parents are friends, so we sort of grew up together. I remember the day when I looked at him and instead of seeing one of my best friends I saw a boy. A cute, sweet shy boy. I had a crush on my friend! I felt so gross and weird. I felt this way before any of my friends even started to. The boy I liked, who had been shy originally, began to withdraw himself from me and my sister whenever we got together. I told my friends about him and they were confused, how could I see anything in him. But I do, am I wrong. I don't know. I'm just a kid in middle school this all feels so wrong. And worst of all, he never responded to that Email, I would know I check every day... But still no reply. :-(

I'm sure he just probably has a lot on his mind, depending on what grade you & him are in, he could have school problems and then putting COVID -19 on top of that, then finding out your friend likes you...trust me I know how it feels. yesterday a really good friend of mine, basically a brother to me, said that he likes me. I was shocked and supprised cause I mean he was like a brother to me so it felt weird... id don't know if this helps but if you have any questions just reply to any of my comments... :-)

I have some sort of problem. i don’t know what it is. my best guess is bipolar depression, but i honestly don’t know. my family thinks i have depression, so they sent me to therapy. it doesn’t help. they really don’t understand. i don’t need, nor want help. there’s nothing they can do, what i really need is Ren. heh... i really hope my family doesn’t read this, y don’t know about ren. ren is my amazing crush who also likes me but we haven’t actually formed a relationship. wow. i meant for this to be a few sentences, but it’s turning into a novel. sorry. anyway, i don’t think they can help me. no matter how much love and attention they try to give me, ive never been comfortable with that much physical contact from adults. i don’t know why. i just prefer hugging my friends, or talking to them, also, i jumpstarts had an idea. maybe, it’s better to open up to your friends, because they’re probably around the same age as you, and haven’t fixed all their problems yet. then, you have someone to figure it out with you, instead of someone to tell you about your past problems and suggest the solutions that helped them, because... i lost my train of thought. hopefully you get the point.

I'm going to assume you're a teenager and all of this is perfectly normal part of development. socializing with your friends is a lot more important than your parents at this time of your life and that's okay. Bipolar disorder is an incredibly complex mental illness and unless you're showing some signs of that I wouldn't assume you have it...https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bipolar-disorder/symptoms-causes/syc-20355955

After having my first baby, I realized that I have wasted the last decade with someone who didn’t want the same things as me.

I wanted children young so I could spend more years with them, I wanted to live on the coast, I wanted to pursue acting, I wanted to travel, I wanted to be able to say goodbye to my Grandma before she passed away. None of these things happened because I gave up my dreams to be with him.

I have ruined my life and I do not know how to move forward.

I want to have children. I feel the urge to have them. At the same time, I see the state of the world and feel envious of my parents because they'll likely die before me and won't see that much destruction because of the climate change. And I feel like it's selfish and cruel to bring more people (that I'll care about most in the world) into it. But also everyone around is having children like it's no big deal.
