Hard Time Coping

Now, this isn’t something I’m new to, I’ve suffered from depression for about 1/2 of my life. I’ve been through therapy/counseling, am currently on 2 anti-depressants, and am about to go onto a third. After seeing some 6 different professionals, the basic advice to “cope” while trying to solve the underlying problems has generally been the same. Now, I’ve done my best to do all of this to a tee, I exercise daily, have...

Separation Anxiety Disorder

I’m 18 years old and I was home schooled until my sophomore year in high school. When I was in second grade my parents had to pull me out of school and home school me because I would throw up everyday before school and I would cry because I didn’t want to leave my mom. I would continually have nightmares that I would get kidnapped and so I slept every night in my moms...

Considering Suicide

I feel like I am close to possibly killing myself, and I don’t know what to do. I have these disturbing thoughts that had followed me into each night, and now they persist into my waking hours(they are thoughts of my throwing myself down a long flight of stairs, or throwing myself off of a tall building), there are thoughts of hopelessness and despair each and every day. I am in love with a...

Is This My Fault?

Sometimes my family’s friend watches me. Once I stayed with him for a week. He wouldn’t let me wear any clothes because he said that he loved me for all of me and accepted me for all that I was. He said the only reason no one else would look at me without clothes is because I’m ugly. He said its my fault I’m ugly because I eat too much. He got really mad...

Depression?

Hi. I just took your sanity test and the results brought up 8 serious plus 8 milder disorders. I usually do not trust this type of tests but this time I noticed that they describe what I’m going through pretty well. But the reason I’m here is because I wanted to do some research on how “normal” is it to go through all I’m going through and if it has a “cure”. The ones...

Partner Dealing with Anger and Depression

My partner and the mother of my child is going through some emotional problems that I do not understand. Today, she vandalized my vehicle and broke a window in our house because I left a soda can on the kitchen counter. She tells me that I am emotionally abusive and I have no idea why she thinks that is true. I have never been anything but supportive of her and I have even changed...

My Mother-in-Law Refuses To Speak to Me

My mother-in-law wont accept my apology. My in-laws came to visit the kids right before Halloween, I had a sign hanging that said “I wanted to be a witch for Halloween but my mother-in-law wouldn’t loan me a dress”. When I hung it I meant no ill feelings towards her, I just thought it was a funny saying. After she saw it and went home she was offended. She talked to my husband and...

Concern

I have a concern that’s been bothering me for many years. I wish to have some psychological advice, but cannot afford it. I also believe my good friend might be suffering from something similar. The most troubling thing about it is the general depression of my intelligence. I am aware that I am of above average intelligence, (or at least believe so) but over the years my mind has gone very fuzzy. Some days...

Am I the Problem or Is He the Problem?

Me and my boyfriend have been on and off for 2 years in high school. We are both 19 and we Love each other so much, but we get into dumb arguments. When we started going to college thats when the problems started. He gets annoying when he comments on something that I say and he makes it seem like I did something wrong, or that I don’t Love him. I don’t know what...

Staying in Touch with Therapist after Termination?

I had been seeing a female Greek counsellor for social anxiety and I really miss her. I have just found out that firstly, she was exactly the same age as me; we are both 21 and secondly, that at our final appointment I was perfectly within my rights to ask if we could stay in contact with one another. Prior to our final session I had told myself that it was a necessity that...

Talking To Myself Out Loud: Normal or Not?

So I have always talked out loud to myself when I’m alone since I can remember. My mom said she used to catch me doing it in my room all the time when I was little, and sometimes even in the bathroom or a changing room in public, and I remember a few times when she would ask me who I was talking to, or someone else would comment about it to her, and...

I Live in a Fantasy World

I only make the effort to converse with someone if I feel like they are worth my time(most people I know, aren’t). I pretend I care about things around my friends. I hate it. I hate lying more than anything. I prefer being alone. It’s too much effort being with people. They’re so fake to me. I have no desire for romantic relationships and barely any for sex. While other people my age seem...
