    Dear peggy,

    Tough love doesn’t work for me. The more I try it. The more difficult it gets. I have faced poverty when I was younger. I just need bare minimum to survive. I have a big project submission today. I have GAD. My chest hurts. It’s difficult.

    Dear Anita,

    When my parents fought it hurt. I questioned love and romantic relationships. Now that I am little older. I understand. Every romantic relationship faces the test of time and difficulty. My parents did not hide their hardships and fights.

    I coped and was strong all those times. A part of me hoped that one day I will have a family of my own. I’ll marry the person I love and very attracted to, get financially stable enough and raise kids. Life had other plans for me when it came to romance. The person I love is not waiting for me to show up. I lose my focus in academics as well. I am in one of the top universities in my country and I cannot focus. Because studying seems useless. If I am not going to build a family, what am I going to do with all the money I earn anyway?!

    I know I can donate. Enjoy. Going to places by myself. But it seems not enough. Most of the time.

    Anita,

    I was young. After my ex broke up with me, I dated other people. My ex got hurt. I was young back then. Now I underatand, I did not cheat on him. We were not in a relationship then. Even if he is hurt, that’s not for me to worry about.

    The dates went nowhere though. I was too sad. Not much regrets about it anymore. But I wish I had given myself more time to heal back then, except of trying to distract myself with dating.

    @peggy yes, my ex wanted me to be religious as well. I made it clear from the beginning that I am not. He kept hoping.

    I have had anxiety issues since sixth grade. Mom-dad fighting a lot and pressure to do well academically. My parents are okay and peacefully together. Academic pressure has increased. I feel a need to prove myself all the time. I know my ex does not care and he i’s the class topper. But I felt so insignificant compared to him. Like I am nowhere near good enough. It’s just my insecurities talking, I know. As much as I try to not consume myself with these thoughts, the more the engulf me.

    Yes @anita. I need to see a better therapist. And a counsellor again, I think. I had a breakdown last night. The boy in love with me helped. After exams and classes we hung out.

    @peggy, I had anxiety issues since young. I dated my ex for about a year before breaking up. He is religious and I am not. Something he did not want to negotiate.

    I try to meditate. It’s difficult. I’ll keep trying.

     

    Thank you for your responses.

    I have generalized anxiety disorder. I am currently prescribed prozac 20mg. Then later on when I was crying to much. I was advised to up the dosage but it was too much for me. I slept all day and had a headache. I now take only 20mg of it.

    I was not prescribed clonazepam. I take 0.25-.5 mg per day. It helps me with my anxiety attacks and makes me sleep.

    I am not okay. I like attending classes but my focus is waay off. About 8 more months till I graduate.

    P.S. Thank you Anita. I was hoping you would show up.

    I feel extremely lonely and suicidal. I have an exam tomorrow. I really wanted to talk to someone. Maybe everyone is just busy today.

    Hey, I do not want to be so lonely. I shall try to sleep. Without medication. Have an exam tomorrow. Medication will make sleep easier but I need to wake up on time for my classes.

    Hey,

    <i>I know that the pain is overwhelming and it will go away if you let yourself be.</i>

    I am not sure if God exists or not. But maybe you can do things to make yourself calm and happy? Simple things like- art, cooking, a walk, talking to a loved one? Take one day at a time. And be good to others and yourself.

    Here, we are to listen.

    May you find peace and joy. I am so sorry you are going through this. May you be alright.

    What I like about myself-

    1. Brave. I want to give up. I make plans for it. I never do.

    2. Forgiving. I always end up forgiving the people who did wrong. Holding a grudge is just too much for me.

    3. Confident about my body. I love my body, my smile, my voice.

    4. I like that I am creative sometimes. I can make art with bright colors.

    5. I am caring and sensitive.

    He was watching you. Every detail of you imprinted in his memory. Enjoy the days of love.

    Are relationships this difficult for everyone?

    I feel devastated.
