no offense to anyone here. but does anyone else feel like this app sometimes makes anxiety worse? Or that you feel like no one here really gets anything? It seems like everyone just gives generic answers. "I'm sorry" "I feel the same way" "feel better soon" etc etc etc. like no one feels genuine. Sorry if this offends anyone .. just expressing how I've felt lately, not just on here, in real life too but I came to this app to talk about mental health, conditions and talk about odd symptoms so I was expecting more genuine conversations I guess. Again really sorry ..

    I guess it depends on who you're interacting with, I've had mixed conversations so far. I was hoping for the same that you had mentioned. If you want to talk I'm down.

      I haven't talked to anyone in DMs yet. Part of it might be cause of my mood lately but I'm not sure. Like I feel bad for even mentioning it but I had to get it out you know? And thank you for letting me know I have someone to go to if I really need to. The same goes for you, my DMs are open anytime, I'll answer back as soon as I can. ❤️

    I don't think the comment are too bad. But I'm DMs is does seem like we're all too awkward to know how to talk to each other or just don't seem to want to

      I do think that has a lot to do with it, it can definitely feel awkward talking to or initializing a convo when we don't know someone. I'm always open to talk if anyone needs to.

      maybe we're all feeling the same way? This app is supposed to help with talking and manage some of it. I guess I could be expecting more when I shouldn't. If that makes sense

        I feel like they do a good amount. They don't need to be giving us conversation suggestions

    Theres a lot of people here with different ways of saying they care and methods of helping. Some dont translate well. I think the genuine comments I've gotten are worth the ones that dont do much. But if this app isn't serving its purpose, dont feel bad about going! This method cant possibly be right for everyone. I'd hate for it to make your anxiety worse continually.

    I get that. I’ve been having odd symptoms too and want more than sympathy. Message me if you want to chat.

    I think it is an automatic response to say something that is a platitude. We are strangers and it is both easy and hard to open up to strangers. I have issues I talk about and issues I guard. It is a defense mechanism. If you want to talk, message me, I will get back to you as soon as my work schedule let's me.
