    I often feel the same way. Life feels so fake.

    I feel so dissociated all the time. I cant remember what life was before I got sick

    I also binge eat to cope with my feelings which obviously does not help matters but it’s the only way I feel something

    I totally understand the dissociation. For me, it causes me to not eat much. I'll just lose my appetite for no reason or not have one all day. :( I cope with illicit drugs right now, but I want to stop for the sake of my long-term health.

    It does not always help but I watched this YouTube video the other day and this woman who was severely depressed after a TBI thought she could not do it any longer but then started something called “the positivity game” where she tricked herself into having the opposite response to everything. Does not always help but force yourself to try

    And for the eating thing I know it’s better that I am doing that instead of self harming physically but I know it also makes me so self conscious and will take a toll on my overall health

    I feel the same way, especially now since I'm disabled and getting out of the gutters seems impossible.

    How about today’s goal is to eat something that nourishes our mind body and soul?

    If physically and mentally possible, make it ourselves. If not, do takeout or have a family or friend member help?

    I think it's completely normal to question life. If u have an obsession with death... then I'd be worried.

    most days I feel like I'm doing all I can just to sit up in the bed. and then once I do, I just want to melt,go away, because reality is right there shoving it's problems at me. I'm doin all I can to keep myself going, I can't do others too.
