Need Ideas to Justify Freedom from Self-Injury

Sorry to waste your time with a problem that is completely my fault, but I have been free of self-injury for over 1000 days now, but it is still a fight sometimes. All the information on the internet seems to say find someone to talk to, but that is a lot easier said than done for me. My best friend is 9 years older than me, and is married with a baby and a...

Hearing Voices

Uhh. I’m 13 and I I will sound crazy, but I’m serious here. You know the phrase ‘train of thought’? Well, it needs a track if it’s a train. So my whole life there were two tracks of thought, mine & a narrator (stupid things like ‘as she opens the fridge’ only after I read a novel) Well, since puberty, increasingly the narrator thinks (well talks but I can’t LITERALLY hear it) more often,...

Constant Destructive Anger

My roommate seems to get angry at the littlest things. It’s like walking on eggshells with him. I am scared to mention almost anything to him, in fear that he will start yelling. When an electronic item messes up he will rip it from the wall and throw it on the sidewalk to break it. This morning he took a knife to his mattress and ripped it apart because it was uncomfortable for him...

Psychosis Maybe?

I sometimes get paranoid that what I think and feel isn’t really me, that it’s all just some unreal lie type thing. I used to have moderately severe depression but I don’t feel as though I do anymore. I have major ‘highs’ when I feel like i’m on top of the world and that life is amazing but then I have ‘lows’ where I feel like life isn’t worth living. I often don’t remember...

Embarrassing

Every time my girlfriend and I have sex I just cant orgasm. and I don’t really mind but I care because she’s really really hurt and I often find her crying about it and I don’t want to hurt her. I am on Prozac, I don’t know if that affects anything at all. A: I appreciate the fact that you are sensitive to your girlfriend and want to fix this. It sounds to me...

Feeling Guilty and Excessive Worrying

I used to have a fulfilling life with my husband and our baby (I did experience some long depressed periods as a teen). My problems began a year ago when a series of traumas, accidents and health issues occurred in a row (none of them were because of my family). I feel that I’m going to collapse under the weight of all the “baggage” I’ve been carrying since then. I don’t feel I deserve...

He Left without Saying Goodbye

I’m 31 and I’ve been seeing this guy since June, but it didn’t get really serious until end of November. He finally told me he loved me on New Years eve and how he never wants to lose me from his life, because I was the one person who cared about him and not what he could do for me. I’ve known he was going away to school since early November, and I’ve never...

Boyfriend Cheated and Blames Me

Ok, so I have been in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for 5 years. This year I gave up my job to move to be with him for six months, I won’t go into details but whilst I was there I went into his facebook account as I was having sneaky suspicions that he was contacting other girls and found evidence to prove my predictions right. I was distraught of course and...

Lost My Youth to Eating Disorder

I’m a male, 23 years old, and I suffered from anorexia nervosa for over 6 years. I recovered at 21 years old without any professional or family help and it wasn’t until i was 22 that i told family and friends that i once had the disorder. They were both angry and not surprised. I’m terrified of what my life turned into during that stage in life. I became so completely consumed with by...

I Don’t Know What I Feel for Her

Hello, I am a high school teenager and I have been seeing my girlfriend for 3 months. She is 17 years old, white, and from a modest household. I am 16 years old, Hispanic, and from a poorer household. We have been dating for almost 3 months now and up to about 2 weeks ago; she was everything I could ever want in a girl. But now when I am around her I don’t...

Family Thinks I Am Schizophrenic

I have lived with depression/social anxiety and selective-mutism for the past 4-5 years. I recently had my sister express her concern for my mental health. She begged me to seek help. I engage in cutting, overdosing, starvation. I have cut since the age of 14 and have never stopped, going so far as to cut my vein and be sent to hospital. I want death. In fact I dwell on suicidal thoughts 70% of...
