I Don’t Feel Like An Adult

This is very difficult for me. I am a 19 year old female who feels more like a kid than a woman. I think the problem is that I still haven’t come to terms with my adulthood. I don’t drive, don’t know how and honestly don’t want to get my license. I have basic cooking skills, but I’m more of a burden in the kitchen than a major help. I don’t turn around when...

I Am a Terrible Person

I am 19 and I’m the worst person. I am judgmental and hypocritical. I am insecure about everything there is about me from my looks, the way I speak, etc. I have slut shamed many girls for the way they dressed, the outlooks on sex, and other things. I lash out at my family by screaming, crying, and throwing things like my emotions is a mixture of a hurricane, earthquake, and a tornado all...

Concerned About Isolation?

I am a twenty three year old college student who has recently transferred to a different school were I live on campus. I currently have a therapist and take medication for a psychotic disorder.

Is Self-Embedding Dangerous?

I Feel Like My Life Is Falling Apart

Ever since I’ve come back from a long vacation over the summer, I feel like my whole life is falling apart. For one, I was cheated on by my somewhat boyfriend by my best friend, and I did not get any sympathy for it. Also, my best friends don’t like me that much any more because a friend of theirs claimed I was talking behind their back, and I was not. I don’t have...

Murderous Thoughts

Im medicated for auditory hallucinations but I have troubling thoughts about committing murder and continuing to drugs. I was diagnosed with severe depression and possible schizophrenia (my doctors aren’t sure). I was prescribed Citalopram (30 mg) for the depression and Abilify (1 mg) for my auditory hallucinations that frequently told me to harm or kill people. Even though I haven’t heard any voices recently, I’ve been having this empty feeling, boughts of paranoia and...

Unable to Forgive Mother-in-Law

Hello! I’m 24 and I’ve been with my husband (partner, really; no wedding yet, although it’s in the works) for over 4 years. Up until earlier this year, I had a pretty okay relationship with his mother. At the very beginning of the year, I completed my law school applications, a very tedious process! I called her to let her know I’d completed them, as I was very excited. I’m estranged from my own...

Concerned About Voices & Things I’m Seeing

Not sure whether to seek professional help. I’m a mess, I’m actually finding it difficult to talk to people, because I’m scared of how they’ll react. I’m scared of them thinking I’m a freak, or the polar that I’m attention seeking or being dramatic. I have a kind of imaginary ‘friend’. His name’s Red. He talks to me, but most of the time he tends to use other noises rather than talking. For...

Should I Say Something?

I know this might sound dramatic, but it bothers me and I cant get this picture out of my head and I don’t know if I should confront my boyfriend about this or to just let it go. He always says I try to start fights when I do this but I can’t help it. Its not that I get mad it just that I talk how I feel. …. I have this...

Feeling Angry if Stuff Happens Around Me Fast

Hello, I was wondering that whenever stuff around me is going really fast or if everyone is talking a lot I feel like I’m being pressured and panic so bad i need to go into an empty room and calm down. Also, when someone ask to explain something, I can’t really explain it well or I can’t really explain myself and space out like right now I was gone for 5 minutes. I just...

I Can’t Talk to Authority Figures

For as long as I can remember I’ve had difficulty approaching people in positions of power. By this I mean people like: my boss, professors/teachers, landlords and in some cases, my own parents. This has restricted my personal growth in many ways. I struggle in school because I’m afraid to ask teachers for help. I will avoid talking to my boss for fear that she will make a negative comment on my work performance....
