I think people think I’m crazy, weird

By March 12, 2022No Comments

Hello, my name is Skylar I have learning disabilities: ADHD, OCD, Auditory Processing Disorder, Oral Expression Disorder, Severe Anxiety, and Depression. I feel sorry, anxious, depressed because I feel like people think I am annoying, crazy, weird, etc. It feels like nobody likes me or wants to be my friend. It feels like barely even anyone wants to be my friend. It feels like barely even anyone wants to text with me/hangout with me. It feels like I am invisible like some people don’t even notice me. It makes me feel sad and lonely because it feels like nobody wants to be my friend. Everyone freaking leaves when I try to explain to them what I’m going through it freaking hurts and then I have no one to freaking talk to because I’m just a worthless person. I am sick and tired of trying to be the perfect child when I know I’m not. I am sick of trying to impress everyone by putting on a fake smile and a fake laugh. I am so so sorry to all the people who have tried their absolute hardest to support me. I hate life I hate myself I just want to go to sleep and never wake up. idc if I get covid, cancer, or something like that. I just hope it k.i.l.l.s me. I wish the doctor would walk out to everyone and say “she didn’t make it”. I do not want to fight anymore and I can’t even describe how serious I’m being, I’m not living anymore, I’m existing, I’m breathing and that’s it, I’m not living, I don’t have a soul or personality, I am not human, I am a thing, a problem, a disappointment to those who come near me.

Consider This

  • If you haven’t already, consider taking a look at some of the tabs on our website.  In the Tools section we provide some activities to promote insight as well as coping skills while dealing with emotional concerns.
  • Do you have any hobbies/ activities that make you happy- maybe even ones you haven’t participated in in awhile.  This might be a good time to go back to some things that make you happy.  If you can’t think of anything, maybe try something new.
  • We have several ideas for coping skills on our “Tools” section of our website, as well as a section on Depression under our “Learn” tab on the home page (you can hover over it and find a list of different topics such as Depression).  You may want to look through and see if any of the ideas presented appeal to you.  Give something new a try.
  • Have you tried journaling?  The great thing about journals is there’s no judgement.  Maybe try writing down not just how you’re feeling now, but also reasons and skills you’ve used in the past when you felt this way.
  • Remember- you aren’t alone.  You may not realize how many people around you are struggling right now as well.  Keep reaching out- you’re doing a great job.
