So I am just not coping with life. I hate who I am. What I look like. And everything else. I feel so lost with everything. I just feel like I need something to numb the pain. Uni is really impacting on me right now because I love my study and my anxiety is just controlling my life and I don’t know how to change that. My depression is becoming debilitating. My BPD is all over the place. I feel scared, sad, alone. Where can I turn?
What are other people experience with this?

We're so sorry to hear that you're going through this @natureoflife, especially when it's impacting your uni work. What course are you doing?
Have you been able to chat to your GP about your anxiety and depression?
Please look after yourself.

Hi, I study nursing,

I hear you. I have BPD too. I see a psychologist fortnightly for therapy.

Nursing must be incredible @natureoflife, have you been doing your pracs yet? It's great that your GP is really supportive, it's important to have that support network in place to be able to open up.

@natureoflife Good morning, just wanted to say hi and see how you are doing. My son has anxiety and depression and it impacts his study and view of himself, so I can relate. You sound like a lovely person and very intelligent and compassionate to study nursing. Can I say thank you as when I've been at my worst, nurses have saved my life with their care. Know that you are needed and valued. Sending you a big hug <3
