    A very dark period of life

    Hello everyone, hope that this new year is proving to be better than the previous one so far. It has certainly been somewhat strange and unusual for me so far. Made some business connections, some new people, kind of interesting folks on the surface level, a bit strange and confusing at times...

    A very dark period of life

    Update: I can say that i'm fine now, there are good and bad days of course, such fluctuations are normal regardless of the overall situation and circumstances. What i noticed is that objectively life has become a lot harder. All those stories that life gets better afterward don't seem to be...

    A very dark period of life

    Well, i'm not really connected to people at work. It's not like i haven't tried. I'm tolerated and they are nice toward me, it's not really a toxic collective. There are even people i have thought that have something in common and quite a bit more than that, but it turned out that it was a...

    A very dark period of life

    @Aspychata I don't know if i pushed through. Yes, i'm back on my feet so to speak but external circumstances are still there. It's still unknown into what i have pushed through. @Outdated Well a drink here and there isn't really something, a lot of times it pushes you through the day. But if you...

    A very dark period of life

    1. Drugs, alcohol and partying are off the list, not my kind of coping mechanism at all. I drink a little but far from something like that. Considering my overall situation that would be a sureproof way to destroy myself completely. Besides I'm introverted and quite bad at socialising. 2. Yes...

    If u could undo things in the past would you?

    Short answer, i would most certainly. But the past is past, just make sure you don't repeat it, either with yourself or with some new people or with someone you already know. All you can do is change your behavior and mindset. "I have caused a lot of pain to a lot of people because of my...

    A very dark period of life

    I haven't written here in a long time. My emotional levels are back at their usual level, there is a normal response (normal for me) when interacting with people. They can get me laughing or sad for example. There is no more blankness or numbness in interaction except when I'm tired which is...

    Rejection...again

    @RemyZee That scenario is all too familiar and i don't have to say how much it sucks. People are generally right when they say that you shouldn't take it personally but that level of constant rejection erodes your self-esteem and general psychological well-being.

    Chats

    @Outdated Ah i see, well you have your preferences. I find chat option to be more efficient mean of communication if the other side is committed to exchange. Depends on individuals, some people don't do on the fly talk even in such settings. @ImaginativelyCute Great than, drop a message in forum...

    Chats

    Thanks for the explanation, i was really hoping for members that already have such groups to give a response. There is very little activity on the forum chat.

    Do you have forum related (or just for fun, something else) chat groups on Skype/discord/what's app or any other similar platforms?

    A very dark period of life

    @Outdated It is one possibility although not a more probable one. @Sasha22 Yes, my thoughts exactly about the possible meaning. The dust has settled as my mood has stabilized and there are no more patological acute distortions like anxiety and depression. I was working all the time during this...

    A very dark period of life

    I think i can say that depression has subsided and the nervous system is no longer tense. But, there is still some feeling in the background that something is wrong. It can't be really associated with any specific thought. It's not cognitive in nature and it's looming in the back of my...

    A very dark period of life

    I'm completely off the anxiolytics now. Had some withdrawal effects from xanax so i covered it with another for several days and then quitted that too. I can feel things, events, and people much better now. Guess i managed to pull the psyche from the state of shock. Still, there is quite a bit...

    A very dark period of life

    Well, i've been completely alone in this sense for over 30 years before this, i'm quite used to it and don't really require validation to support my feelings of self worth. The worst thing i can do now is to let someone else determine my value. Life became quite a bit more complicated and that...

    A very dark period of life

    @Outdated I'm reading quite a lot lately aside from keeping myself busy with daily chores. It gives me a focus and some insights into parts of my specific condition. I don't have any friends here, only some sporadic talk with work collegues and as i said they already have their busy family lives...

    A very dark period of life

    @Outdated I relate mostly to your reply here. I would go on a holiday but i can't atm, a colleague with whom I'm directly working is going at the end of july and it has been only 2 months since my last holiday so I'll have to wait till september starts at least. Although i miss some real live...

    A very dark period of life

    How do you people on spectrum deal with (speaking to the one's that went through this kind or similar situation) having to push through life almost completely alone while being pressured from anxiety and depression from recent traumatic life events? I barely have the strength to go to work and i...

    Do any of you have self esteem issues?

    Self esteem issues were always a problem for me to a varying degree throughout an entire life. It was a severe problem more often than not. Usually thinking up to 2 or 3 things that "will" go wrong at the same time and often misinterpreting other people's words as something personally devaluing...

    Social pressure regarding marriage

    They are for the most part older women and married with kids. There are two of them who are single. One is almost 10 years older than me and we are a complete mismatch in interests/personality/temperament. The other is few years younger and is not really that interested in me. Conversations...
