    I get exactly the same way, with racing mind and full on anxiety. It's really bad atm actually. I practice mindfulness as a way of calming myself. I also concentrate on grounding myself. I really focus on the feeling of my feet against the floor. Feel the muscles working. Feel how warm or cold my feet feel, sense the sole of my foot against the floor. I do this for as long as I can. At first, it only lasted a minute or so. You need to work at it. You need to accept that you will feel anxious most of the time. You can achieve small breaks, where you get space to catch your breath and relax momentarily. That's how I manage to cope. And I really enjoy my little moments of quiet. They get me through the rest of the day. I do hope you can find a way of coping. Sorry if this has been unhelpful. It's just how I manage my racing mind and anxiety.

    bubbles - having read your comment, I logged out I was shocked to find I could access masses of threads/posts the only ones not available were the 'dark' topics and of course the 'site supporters' area I thought it was only light topics that were on public display it is sad to see the shell this place has become

    What happened to this forum?!

    I think the issues started when the owner upgraded the forum. It used to be private but now the public can read posts. It can be off putting. I admit to being one of those people.

    Hello..

    Welcome to the forum Nella, it is true it is a very slow site anymore, but if you can look past that I think you will see that the handful of about are plenty nice.

    Ready for suicide

    Please, please dispose of the helium safely. I'm not religious but nobody knows what happens after death, and if reincarnation exists, committing suicide may result in you having a worse life. I struggle with respect too, we have to respect ourselves before anyone else can respect us, and if people see that we don't respect ourselves, then they cannot feel any respect for us either. I hope you don't get let go from my job as a software tester. Sorry to hear things went wrong after your uni. There is nothing wrong with you, you may just have difficulties, especially if your Dad hit you and your mum had no social skills. Don't blame them, though, because, that is the mistake that I made when I realised parental abuse was behind my difficulties. The important thing to remember is that abusive parents had difficulties in life themselves, which is why they were unable to love their children properly. Lots of people have kids and find that they are unable to parent properly. Have you been to the doctors or spoken to your local MIND or mental health charity, sometimes, talking things through can really help. You might not be shy but it seems you have no confidence in yourself. You are not a creep, you are very young, but how you feel about yourself radiates outwards and people treat you accordingly, so if you hate yourself, people will sense this and find it hard to respect you, but if you love yourself, people will treat you the same. I hope this helps. I'm not in too good a place at the moment, which is why I have been unable to help anyone on these boards for a while.
