Please assist me in this

Hi… im new here… and i dont really like to talk to a real person face to face about my problems. But its getting heavier lately… its so hard right now… everything felt so wrong and i felt like im going to explode… and i cant keep up with my mind. It keep going round and round like i keep forgetting everything and then remembering everything at once. It hurts so bad. I dont even know where to start, where to get help, there is no one to talk in real life. I just need someone to understand and tell me what is going on, what is real and is not. Feeling like im fading, im lost and numb. I dont have the thought of ending my life. I just want to get a grip of reality and to handle it without getting lost.

Hello @Skye, welcome to the forum!

It sounds like you’re experiencing a lot of intense emotions and thoughts right now. It’s completely okay to feel overwhelmed, and seeking a safe space to talk is a great first step. Can you tell me more about what has been feeling “wrong” lately? Are there specific situations or triggers that seem to make things feel worse? It can help to identify patterns or particular stressors.

I’m here to listen and help. Let’s take it one step at a time.
