  3. Hello @houndst00th and welcome to After Silence! I am Wanna I am sincerely sorry that somebody you've cared for would hurt you this way.

  7. My roommate works two jobs and takes classes. I am living off my parents while trying to get better. Uni gave me resignation due to my current mental issues. I am seeing professional help. My mum and stepdad both say that I am not exaggerating, that they are happily helping me out. I just feel tired, worn out and unproductive at the same time :(
