I Just Want To Give Up

I’m new to this and not sure how to do this but I’m just sick and tired of everyday life. I used to wake up every day and it was wonderful, now waking up is a depressing event cause it’s the beginning of another long tedious altogether disappointing day. My parents and me rarely see eye to eye. Recently my gf left me. She cheated on me the lied to me; it wouldn’t have...

I Think the World is Turning Against Me

Hi, I understand that I am young (16) but I would really like some advice. Something in me is starting to think that the entire world is turning agaisnt me. A great friend of mine died not too long ago and I’m still kind of getting over it. Also, I live with my grandparents. Now, I’m not liking this because my grandfather can be really ignorant and mean sometimes. Not too long ago, he...

Parents Are Taking Advantage of Me

My mother and stepdad have been having financial issues for a few years now. They also have 3 small children that they need to support. For almost two years I have been lending my mother money, which she pays back at her leisure. About a year and a half ago they had their cars repossessed in which case I ended up having to lend them my car almost full-time. She had agreed to help...

Anxious and Nauseous All the Time

Whenever I have to leave my house I start to feel sick. My heartbeat speeds up and my throat gets tight. I constantly feel like I’m about to throw up and I gag a lot. It started off when I would go to visit my girlfriend in another city. But it’s gotten worse and now it’s pretty much whenever I leave my house for anything. It’s really severe when I have to do something...

I have a friend that I care deeply for. Over the last two years since she has known me I know that I have emotionally been dependent on her. I haven’t been as bad at this as I have been in the past but now she has let me know that she doesn’t want any contact with me. I know without much background information it would be hard to answer this question. I have...

Needing Help and May Be Schizophrenic

I have very violent mood swings everyday. When stress comes, I just snap. It’s been this way all my life. I suffer from delusions of grandeur and the next moment I think about inflicting pain on someone. I’m afraid of snapping and doing something horrible. I want to be a good person, but I am always bad. I’m at the point in my life that I cannot control my mindset anymore, nor can I...

Bisexual Sister Is Bullied

My sister recently decided that she likes girls. Well when the kids in our school found out they started to pick on her. I talk to her every day to let her known that their opinion isn’t that important and that she should listen to what her heart wants. Her girlfriend is very upset that these kids don’t understand that it doesn’t matter if you are Gay, Bi-Sexual, or Straight we all should love...

Insecurity in Friendships

When I was about 6 years old, I was sexually and physically abused for about 7 years. For many years I was seriously unable to make lasting friendships or able to open up. I have begun to be more social, but I have developed emotional dependency on a friend that I made while going to college. If he’s unhappy, I’m unhappy. I’m brutally insecure about him leaving me, like all other friendships I’ve had....

About 6 months into the relationship his ex-girlfriend and mother of his children had a fourth child. After the birth she started harassing me and threatening me. When I went to him about it he blew it off causing us to end things. We...

Does This Constitute Psychotic Depression?

I’ve been depressed since I was probably fifteen years old and was diagnosed with MDD and dysthymia last year. However, there are some troubling things that happen when I get depressed (apart from the depression itself). I’ve had three episodes of derealization/depersonalization in my life; when I was eight, when I was thirteen, and last year. The first two came on kind of out of nowhere and the last one was with a major...
