Date Rape: Road To Recovery

You knew that there was a risk and you knew that it happened to some people’€”but you didn’€™t expect it to happen to you. You trusted them. You trusted him’€¦or maybe you hardly knew him at all. Regardless, you expected more from yourself and thought you had a better judge of character. If only you could just go back and change your decision’€”if only you could just go back and undo that entire day. Memories swarm your mind and overwhelm your emotions leaving you disgusted and unable to push forward with yourself. How are you supposed to feel? How are you supposed to move on? How are you supposed to forget? Although you know that what happened to you wasn’€™t fair and that you didn’€™t deserve it, you still blame yourself.

They/He stole something from you’€”an innocence, a comfort, something precious and intimate. Something that was yours. Previously you hadn’€™t realized that all of it could be taken from you so quickly. But it did, just like that it happened changing your life forever. As time passes the feelings of isolation and filthiness get worse. You don’€™t want to view yourself this way, but you don’€™t know how to stop. You’€™re not you anymore’€”you’€™re scared, lack self-confidence, and hardly have a desire to do any of the things you used to hold so dearly in your heart. If only you could scream out your frustration to the world around you. If only you could have people understand what you are going through and find people who know how to help you. But would anyone really understand?

The truth is, there are people who get it. There are unfortunately a lot of people who get it. Despite the traumatic situation and unfortunate experience, the truth is there are many who have been able to find hope despite what happened to them. There are many who have been able to rise above and take back their life’€¦ but the key to their success was by not doing it alone…by not keeping their story a secret. There are people who care about you. People who deeply care about you and love you. Here at RemedyLIVE we are here to chat, listen, and love. We want you to know that you are never alone and we want to help you get the help that you deserve.

Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen?

Why do good people die? Why do hard workers lose their jobs? Why are loving parents unable to conceive children? Why do innocent children get abused? Why do thousands of people die from hunger and thirst? If there is a God out there, a loving God, why does he allow you to suffer?

The pain you feel. The deep overpowering hurt that fills your thoughts. The instant replay rolling through you head on a never-ending cycle. The harsh reality that you genuinely don’€™t know how to move on from this. You feel so small because of the storm of trauma and fear that’€™s standing right in front of you. The world is scary. Everywhere you turn, every news report, every paper, and every article shared on Facebook is filled with dark deeds done by bad people and unpreventable events done to helpless people. You can’€™t escape it. You want to keep living your life and pretend like these things don’€™t affect you. Pretend like you aren’€™t worried every time you’€™re walking alone or leaving the country. The worst part is, there are no answers. No explanations. No reasons or justifications. It appears to be nothing but pain.

So why? Why do bad things happen? Doesn’€™t God know that it hurts?

If you or someone you know is struggling with working through a traumatic event or difficult situation, we would love to chat with you. We are here to chat, listen, love and help you to get the help/answers you deserve. The world can be a confusing place and keeping it bottled in can be more damaging than processing through it with someone who has an open ear. Someone who has your best interest in mind and someone who wants to help you in whichever way they can. Our SoulMedics are available 24/7 you can either chat in by texting the word ‘€œRemedy’€ to 494949 or by clicking the button ‘€œChat Now’€ on the home screen

Confusion: When Someone You Love Commits Suicide

100 million different things are running through your head. Different thoughts. different feelings. But the one that stands out the most, the one that trumps all of the others, confusion. The big WHY. The one question that you just can’t make sense of, no matter how many times you run it through your head, no matter how many situations you come up with, and no matter how many reasons you create to explain ‘€¦it just doesn’€™t make sense.

There is sadness inside of you that you have never felt before. A deep painful hurt, a deep painful agony buried right in your heart’€¦and although you know that it is there, you don’€™t have the slightest clue how to handle it. And although that thing inside of you is making you sick, you’€™re not sure you even want to deal with. Is it easier to just ignore everything? To ignore the pain, confusion, loss, heartbreak, agony, and sadness. Is it something you can fight all by yourself? At first, you think maybe you can. Maybe it will just be easier for everyone that way, because no one else knows remembers them the way you did and no one else will have the right answers. But as time goes on you begin to realize it is eating away at you. The hurt you have stored is manifesting and growing’€¦and you feel stuck. Stuck in loneliness and apathy. Stuck in depression.

Here at RemedyLIVE we care. We know the importance of sharing your struggle’€”even if it’€™s scary at first and even if hurts more, initially. But when we take that step, when we open up about how we are TRULY doing, that darkness that has settled into our hearts gets exposed to light for the first time. You are not alone, you are not alone now, and you will never be alone. We want to help you get the help you deserve. We want to be that loving ear, who hears you out and listens to how you are feeling. Chat with us today by clicking on the ‘€œChat Now’€ button or texting ‘€œRemedy’€ to 494949.

To The Hopeless

You look at your life. You see the moments you are living in and that’€™s just about it. You can’€™t picture anything to come’€¦anything greater or anything worth it. You search, you try to orchestrate something in your brain, some event or some situation, that would make the pain you are feeling now, worth it’€¦as long as you get to that point. Instead. You end up just sitting there mind blank as if you are just staring at a black wall. Nothing really coming nothing really going, just empty thoughts and missing dreams. You remember a time when the world seemed like this beautiful new place with endless possibilities. Maybe you remember the event that changed that for you’€¦ or maybe it just crept in slowly at first, then suddenly all at once. Suddenly you’€™re in a place where the questions ‘€œWhat’€™s my purpose?’€ ‘€œWhat’€™s the purpose of life?’€ ‘€œWhy am I here?’€ fill your brain and rob your thoughts.

You feel hopeless. You feel lost’€¦like your running in the dark desperately chasing after the light‘€¦but you don’€™t know where to find it, at this point willing to try anything.

We get it. Many of us have been there ourselves. Here at RemedyLIVE we want you to know that you are not alone. You are not the only person who has felt this way and you are not the last person either. Life is difficult and at times extremely overwhelming’€¦but that light you are searching for’€¦those answers you are seeking’€¦there are answers for them. You have a purpose. There is a reason you are here, a reason far greater than anything you could ever imagine for yourself. Most importantly there is a hope. There is a reason to keep going and to push through the tough times. We would love to chat with you about what that is and help you to see the hope for your life when it’€™s hard for you to see it yourself. We are here to listen to your heart and to be a person to talk through your struggles with. Chat with us today by clicking on the Chat Now button on the homepage or by texting the word ‘€œRemedy’€ to 494949.

I Have No Real Friends

Sure, maybe you ‘€œhave’€ friends. You talk to them in between classes and usually hangout with them on the weekends. They are usually your go to person when you need to talk to someone. From an outsider looking in, yeah you guys are friends.

But in reality you feel like the friendship does more bad then good. Aren’€™t friendships supposed to be fun and uplifting? Something to distract you from the stress in your life and people you can go to share your heart and struggles with. Friends are supposed to be people who are there for you no matter what right? They are supposed to be those people who genuinely want the best for you.

When you look at your friendships though, you feel like you don’€™t matter to them. As if their life would be the same whether or not you were there. They actually talk to you only when it is convenient for them and only hangout with you when there is something that will benefit them through it. They would deny it of course if you called them out on it. You feel manipulated and disposable.

You want friends who are actually interested in how you are doing. How you are really doing. You want to be known. You’€™re tired of the unnecessary drama and the constant gossip. Always talking about someone behind their back and then being best friends with them again a couple hours later. It is draining and causes you to feel self conscious about who is doing the same thing to you.

Here at RemedyLIVE we have SoulMedics ready to chat with you now, who get it. They get the struggle of feeling alone and isolated even when people surround you. They understand the struggle of trying to find true friends who genuinely care about you. We want to hear your heart and about your struggle, and from there help you get the help that you deserve.

I Really Miss Them

Maybe it’€™s from a death, or a breakup, or maybe they moved away. Regardless, they aren’€™t here anymore and you are left trying to figure out how to do life without them by your side. Without them there to talk to whenever you want or to hug when you need it. You loved them and miss them. You miss them terribly, but what do you do when your heart hurts like this? All you want to do is be with them but there is nothing you can do about it.

It consumes your thoughts and is just so, ouch. The hardest part, is being surrounded by the same things you were surrounded by, when you were with them. Or hanging out with the same people you used to hangout with, when you were with them. The memories come flooding back immediately, so it feels nearly impossible to forget. You try your best to cope the best you can. You fill your time with work, partying, drugs, sex, really anything that will take your mind off of it. But at the end of the day, it still hurts and all you can do is think about them.

You would give anything to go back to how things used to be, or honestly to just completely forget about them as a whole. As awful as it may sound, at least you wouldn’€™t have to hurt so much.

Here at RemedyLIVE we know how hard it can be, and we have been there ourselves. It’€™s important for you to have someone to talk to, to share your heart with, and discuss the struggle. We have SoulMedics available 24/7 for you to chat with who are here to chat, listen, and love. Just click the “chat now with a Soulmedic” banner at the top of the screen. There is hope for this situation and we would love to share it with you.

Out Of Control

Things are constantly changing. Everywhere you look change is happening, people grow, events come and go, and life moves on. If you allow yourself to look at it for too long, and focus too generally on the world surrounding you’€¦its easy to realize you are out of control. There are too many unexpected situations to plan for all of them, too many people who’€™s minds think differently than yours, and far too many questions that go unanswered’€¦for you to actually keep everything in your control.

There is an overwhelming sensation that comes over you when you have this realization. Because you have to live a life with no guarantee of consistency. No knowledge about who will be in your life in 5 years, where you will be, or what you will be doing. Every time something new comes into play or something you liked and found security in changes’€¦you feel as if the ground below you falls out and there you are’€¦left falling into this dark pit of not knowing. You don’€™t know what’€™s going to be down there, if it will be warm, if it will be rocky, if it will be lonely. You just don’€™t know. That’€™s the scariest part. The unknown.

You long for security and consistency. You long for stabilization and reliance. You long or someone or something you can fall to when your world crashes down around you.

Here at RemedyLIVE, we get it. We understand that the world around us is ever changing and overwhelming. The best part is, we have hope for you. Chat with us today and we would love to share more about this hope with you and help you to get the help you deserve.

Who Am I?

You ask yourself constantly. Desperately trying to get an answer. Desperately trying to understand. For a little while you believe you are one thing, a couple days later it changes, and then someone new comes along who acts a way completely different than any way you have acted before. It enthralls you, so you begin to live like them. Adopting their ways, their interest, and their clothes. Unfortunately, you had a fall out’€¦ and now not only are you not friends anymore but you want nothing to do with them. So here you are left, trying to figure out who you are now.

Do you go back to what you were like before? Do you start something completely new? Asking yourself over and over again, who am I? What do you like to do? What are you like? What do you believe in? The problem is, everything you have believed previously and everything you have to base the answers of these off of’€¦have been situational. You think you believe in one thing, but then someone convinces you otherwise. Everything you stand for is completely temporary, leaving you actually believing in nothing.

So who are you? The world demands an answer, constantly asking and constantly putting you in positions where you have to choose a side. You want satisfaction that never ends, yet you feel completely overwhelmed and there is this longing inside of you that wants to know it’€¦to know who you are.

Here at RemedyLIVE, we get it. We get the struggle of finding identity in this diverse and ever changing world. We also know how easy it can be to feel alone, especially when you have no one to talk about it with. We have SoulMedics ready to help you with just that. Someone who is ready to chat, listen, and love. Chat with us today by texting the word ‘€œRemedy’€ to 49494 or by clicking the Chat Now button on our homepage.

Maybe I Should Get An Abortion

Maybe you’€™re a planner. Or maybe you’€™re not. Maybe you just take one step at a time and act accordingly. Regardless, you didn’€™t see this one coming.

You’€™re scared.

You knew it could happen, you knew that it did happen to some people’€¦but never expected that you would be one of them. A majority of your time is spent trying to make sense of the life surrounding you and trying to take care of yourself. How are you going to take care of another life? One that is completely reliant upon you. Every flaw or thing you don’€™t like about yourself comes flooding in and you begin to completely doubt your ability to do this. You begin to think about being a mother and the pressure it would entail and the difficult decisions you would have to make. You begin to think about your life now and the freedom you have to do whatever you want whenever you want’€¦what would people say? What would people think?

This will completely change your life as you know it’€¦ and you couldn’€™t be more terrified.

This overwhelming feeling comes over when you think about  it’€¦ like a herd of wild horses all running at you. You feel completely out of control and if you don’€™t do something quick, youpeace are going to get run over and trampled by life. The worst part is that you feel alone, as if no one could ever understand how you are feeling. You wish someone would just tell you what to do and how to handle the situation, but you know ultimately you are going to be the one who chooses’€¦and regardless of which you do, that decision will affect the rest of your life.

Here at RemedyLIVE we care about you. Life can be overwhelming but you never have to take in on alone. You deserve to be heard, known, and loved. Click on the Chat Now button and chat with us today, we want to help you get the help you deserve.

I Feel Alone In My Depression

 

One of the scariest places you can be stuck in, is a place filled with loneliness. Somewhere that is designed for you to look around and see nothing and nobody. You feel surrounded and overwhelmed by this darkness that is clenching tighter and tighter against you until you feel paralyzed by it. You didn’€™t know that darkness could get darker’€¦but daily you see it happening. Until eventually, you look out and realize that any light that had existed found a way to seep out’€¦taking all the hope you had with it. You take a deep breath and try to come to terms with the reality surrounding you’€¦that you are completely alone. Voices inside of your head tell you that you will never get better and that no one could ever understand’€¦because you are the only one who has ever experienced this before. You are one of a kind, and that kind is isolation.

This is Depression.

And although it is easy to believe that this is the reality for life, it’€™s not. Those thoughts those experiences are a lie. A lie that is used to keep you from finding freedom and from getting help.

Because the truth is that there are people all around you struggling with the same thing. Depression and anxiety are way more common than our society leads us to believe. You are not alone and you should not be ashamed. However, the first and one of the most important steps that need to be taken, is to get the secret struggle out. When you admit that you are struggling you open the door for light to come in and defeat the darkness surrounding you.

Not only will you be able to help yourself, but you will be able to help others as well. You see, similarly to how you feel, there are others who feel completely alone and as if no one will ever be able to relate to what they are going through or with how they are feeling. But when you become open about your heart and your pain, it will give others the confidence to do so as well.

Here at RemedyLIVE we know how scary it can be to open up to someone about something like this. That why we are here to Chat, Listen, and Love. We are an anonymous voice who wants to hear your heart and help you to get the help you deserve. Chat with us today!
