Have you ever wished you just had someone you could tell anything? Secrets. Wishes. And hope they won't tell anyone. I wish I did. I wish I had someone I could tell my biggest fear to. It is so silly to say it here. I wont though. I just wonder if a lot of other people feel the same. I just have fears.

Yes. I think everyone feels that way. It's just not many people will ever admit to it. Please be prepared that whenever anything is posted on "Paris Topix", there will always be individuals who are negative and will say ugly, negative things to make people feel bad about their post. Just know you are very normal and have normal feelings.

"You have nothing to fear but fear itself". So do not be afraid. Do you have anyone close to you that you trust? You could always contact a local church and talk with the pastor.

thanks. but you dont understand. it is not good. I just don't want anything anyymore. I know you are trying ot be nice but I just dont see the point anymore. Do you ever feel like leaving? Do you ever feel like leaving everyone you know. Just disappear? Things are so silly. I know I make no sense right now. I just let hte words flow. I have no one I can trust to tell to help figure it out. I guess even writing here is so damn weird. Im going to sleep.

I agree with "Trying to Help". If you need somone to talk with and you do not have anyone that you trust, a pastor would be the most appropriate person to talk with. The church pastor or one of its counselors would be willing to listen and would be able to assist you. You are wise not to post your fears or secrets on this website.

I have a friend that i made in boot camp in 1987. I havent seen him since 1990 but we wstill talk about once a month and he is my sounding board. We talk about family and friends neither of us have or will ever meet. It is good to have someone to talk to. even if he tells everything I say he lives 2000 miles and anyone he would tell wouldnt know me.
I would tell you to give me a call talk till you drop but no way to get my number to you without the whole world getting it.

That is good. I think if you can talk to someone like that it is a better idea than reaching out to just any pastor. Especially when you are vulnerable.

What would lead you to believe that this person was not 20 or up with that little information? Anyone no matter what age wishes for someone to talk to if they don't have it.

It sounds like you are depressed. When this happens, it is not unusual to lose interest in things. Believe this, though: THIS TOO SHALL PASS. There are two songs that come to mind: "TOMORROW" from ANNIE and "THE MORNING AFTER" by Maureen McGovern. The lyrics of both songs deal with the concept that even if things don't feel too great at the moment, IT WILL GET BETTER tomorrow. I know when someone is depressed this sounds trite, and it make take a few more days or weeks for some folks to start feeling better. Try going outside your normal circle of acquaintences/associates in finding someone to talk to. Coming here was actually a very good move, because you are reaching out. Try doing a Google search for 800 number (toll free) Crisis Hotlines, almost every city has one (Paris even did some 20 odd years ago, it only lasted a couple of years, Dr. David Brock and Wenonah Warren were two of the people who answered the phones). Above all, hang in there. Another saying "When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and just hang on!"

I think you are assuming too much.

Because you want someone to talk to, means that you need a support system, it doesn't mean that you are depressed.

Missing people that you could confide in is not depression. It is missing them. JMO.

They are not bad suggestions if that is the case. But if that is not the case, they will know never to say it again, because they "sound like a kid" or "sound depressed." It is a label, and often it is a judgment.

But from experience on here, people will assume things like that.

I would suggest calling the YWCA and talking to Charla. This is an unknown resource and she has many other resources availaable as well. Please talk to someone though. I know how you feel about wanting to disappear and what's the point in anything anymore. I'm also a private person when it comes to how I feel because I don't want to appear weak. Sometimes I just get tired of pretending to be strong though! Please call her and talk, or just show up! No one will know what you're there for! She helps with job search and homeless and art fair and all kinds of stuff. You don't have to tell anyone but her what you're there for! The best part is that it's all confidential and no one will ever know! You ARE important!

I didn't know about that resource, and it is good information. It is good to list these resources in case that is the problem. Anyone can be in a crisis at any time of their life. People without good support systems can be more vulnerable.

Sometimes I get tired of people trying to help with problems that do not exist, or is not what they think it is. Those assumptions can cause job loss and more problems than the person could have ever had before. JMO

Go back and reread post #5. If that's not depression, I don't know what is.

I completely agree! I stumbled upon this resource and I'm glad I did! Everyone needs help at some point in their lives. The downside to that is that not everyone has someone they can lean on for support!
