Hi! 18F here. I'd really like someone to talk to, someone who's also working on recovery but also struggling a bit. We can talk about anything honestly, just looking for a friend :)

34M trying my best to climb out of the abyss.

I'm looking for someone kind and caring to remotely support and celebrate both big and small achievements with. We'll look out for each other and provide support. Maybe check up on each other few times a day, see how we are coping and if we can do anything for the other person. Age and gender don't matter at all, but I feel much more comfortable around women (I'm asexual, this is just a matter of trust). I'm LGBT+ friendly and super nice, positive and endlessly supportive 😊 Can handle being around a person with BPD at their absolute worst without even blinking. Also funny in the untreated random AHDH way 😜 Willing to exchange cute animal pictures 24/7.

I think sometimes we just need one good person in our lives who believes in us no matter what.

I've been really trying to recover so having someone to check in with and celebrating little steps would be great. Also that I can send cute motivating & comforting pictures/art to lol, I have a bunch of them saved so would really like to share them. It would be cool if we could encourage each other and comfort each other. I've had a couple bad experiences with people on here so I hesitate to post this but I'm hoping I run into the right people. I am in a bit of a fragile state of mind nowadays so just a heads up on that. Also I think I may have BPD. I also struggle with thinking clearly so I may have difficulties typing sometimes or forming sentences

I love Video games (especially horror. but I love all types of games except for sports games haha. Some of my favorite games are Resident evil games, doki doki Literature club, omori, World of Warcraft, overwatch, fallout, dying light, pretty much any indie horror game) I also love anime, drawing, nature, cartoons (owl house, Amphibia, big city greens, almost all Pixar and Disney movies, ATLA, Kipo, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls etc.), Japan and music (jpop, vocaloid, electro swing, K-pop, lofi, and more) if we're end up being a good match and end up being recover partners I may draw things for you sometimes lol

Please message (preferably conversation and not chat I'm really bad at replying to messages on chat) if interested and think we would be a good match, thank you so much for reading this ^^

Been struggling recovering from a recent breakup and looking for more people to talk with. Just looking to make friends with people with similar age or ppl with similar experience with breakups and such since I'm taking this real badly rn.

Im into video games and model kits (gundams and stuff that bandai makes or basically anything adjacent to Japan stuff) not really into much else. Been trying to get into reading but pdfs of books bore me to hell so I guess I'll see how that goes.

Im really bad at starting conversations so if youd like to start one, id appreciate it very much. Thank you for reading this huhu.

23F from Brazil (I think my user already made that clear)

I spent many years thinking about suicide, but in the last year I decided to give life a real chance. I hadn't been here for almost 6 months, but I thought I could come here for another reason this time. So if anyone needs a friend, a listener, someone to talk to, I'm available. English is not my first language, but I promise to do my best.

I have personal experience with depression, bipolar, anxiety, panic attacks and suicidal thoughts. In the last years all of this has been under control, but it is not that easy.

Anyway, send me a message if you want to talk about anything about your or my recovery journey. Or any other topic you want to talk about. :)

hoping to find a buddy so we can hold each other accountable and stay on track with recovery. i've been struggling for a while, but i found a spark a bit over half a year ago and did well until recently. i don't want to keep slipping, so i figured why not try here?

at any rate, thank you for reading. feel free to send a message if you wanna chat.

Hello! 28 M from France.

I already posted a few times here and had great conversations with few people that helped me feeling better. Still not "well" but on the road to recover slowly. I would love to share nature pictures that I take when I go out, discuss about our struggle (mine are depression, anxiety, self hatred/body images issues mostly) and achievements.
I want to have someone to share stuff, hopefully making their day and mine little bit brighter by knowing someone is here to share stupid memes about crabs…
Don't hesitate to hit me up! I have 0 preferences (as long as you are a nice person and don't ask for money…. Yes that happened.)

34F from the Bay Area, California here. Looking for local people to hang out and discuss mental health issues. Perhaps sitting in the park and chatting about our struggles... it would be good for me to go outside more. Gender and age do not matter. I don't have many hobbies or interests left due to how severe my depression is. I basically just binge TV shows/movies in between work and sleep, that's about it for right now.

I'd be glad to talk with someone my age and feel free to vent to me, helping someone is sometimes one of the only things keeping me here.

While I've been trying to recover, I can't say for certain that that's the path I'll go down. I want to, I really do, but I just don't know if it's in the cards for me. I'd like to have someone who's okay with setting up specific times to chat on here. I can be quite melancholy when I'm having a problem so please don't feel too bad if I don't respond to your support in a positive way right away. Most likely I will come back later and thank you though. I do my best to be supportive of others, but I can be rather awkward.

I have depression and anxiety. I have been in treatment for nine years at this point and have done everything from therapy and medication to hospitalizations and ECT. At this point I've managed to get off medication and am trying to do normal things again, but being around other people is making things worse.

I enjoy anime, with some of my favorites including Angel Beats, Oregairu, Shinsekai Yori (the book is also really good), A Silent Voice, and the Heaven's Feel movies.

Feel free to look over my posts to learn a bit more about me. If you think we'd be a good match please reach out to me and tell me a little bit about yourself. I'm not really comfortable with a lot of people though so please don't feel too bad if I don't reply to you.

Late twenties female, USA. In rebuilding my will to live, I'd love someone I can dream with. Someone I can hope with. Hope is hard to come by, I know. But we can try. Someone to talk about little moments of joy with as a reminder that it's not all bad out there. Feel free to DM me!

36 male from Chicago Illinois. People tell me I'm really handsome if that Helps?

Currently struggling with recovery. I have a full treatment staff therapist psychiatrist and a few social workers Very intensive treatment.

I do editing an audio work and I like just hanging out on my computer. I like video games anime and retro movies. I'm an introvert.

I had a bunch of nerve damage that's caused me significant issues throughout the course of my life I've done significant therapy to recover But I never gotten back to the way I was before. I'm still in treatment for it.

About 8 months ago my younger cousin who I've known since he was a little kid I've seen literally his entire life from three years old to 30 And to be honest I felt like he was a surrogate brother to me. He jumped in front of a train and took his own life. Some days I still just gorilla up on my couch and can't move or do anything. This has been extremely difficult to recover from. The pain is just so Unbearable some days. I Listen some of his old music playlists And browse his old social media :(.

I have SN and most of the materials that I need For CTB and it's been really really difficult the past few weeks.

31 NB from Sweden here.

Have slowly come to terms with that there are other options than CTB lately and I'm now (very carefully) on a path to some sort of recovery. Not exactly sure what it entails or what it's going to look like but I'm taking it one day at the time. Looking for a recovery buddy somewhere around my age, let's say 28 - 45 (give or take). I tend to have an easier time socializing with women, but gender doesn't matter at all. I'd prefer to talk to someone who have experiences with trauma, since that's why I'm here. I also have iatrogenic PTSDx2 from both psychiatry and therapy, so I'm naturally very critical of both and consider none of them viable options for me anymore.

Was thinking that we can help eachother come up with strategies and resources, bounce ideas back and forth, check in on eachother once in a while and slowly get to know one another. :)

Some things about me:
Kind, caring, playful and curious
Some of my hobbies are: music (listening to, singing, playing the guitar albeit rarely nowadays, record collecting), antique glass collecting, arts and crafts, cooking, animals (particularily cats), board games, ethnological history, model building
I know a lot about psychology, particularily psychotraumatology
I'm a socialist
I live with chronic, stress-related fatigue and nerve damage since three years. Because of this I may not always have the energy to socialize, but I'm committed to those around me and I'm actively trying to come up with strategies to balance my energy levels and socialization.

HMU!

I feel so lonely. I'd love for someone to talk to on the regular. I'm 27 and I'm trans. I'm open to all genders but prefer people 25 and up. I go hiking and when I'm doing ok I love cooking. I've gone through a lot of trauma so someone who isn't scared to talk about trauma and doesn't try to one up but talk about as equal. Feel free to ask me more questions.
