Tension Between Family and My Life

Hello, I really need an outside source to hear my side of the story and hear how I feel. I have known this guy for a long time, but we only recently started admitting feelings for each other, so now we have been exclusive for over 2 months. I know that is not very long, but we have already been through more together than I have in my whole life. The basics of him...

My Mother-in-Law Hates Me

I recently discovered that my mother in law has very strong feelings against me. That sounds like a normal situation for many families, except I had no idea.

But she never seemed to be interested with coming over,...

They think it can go away over night. I am currently 18 years of age and have been suffering from depression since I was 9. For years I wasn’t aware of my depression but since it’s gotten worse it’s pretty clear that I am suffering from it. So far it has stopped me from living a normal life, I never go out.

Will I Have to Struggle Forever?

I am a 45-year-old widow–currently being treated for depression and anxiety. I am suspecting more and more lately that i have ADHD in addition to or instead of those disorders.

So I’m wondering–is it even worth it to try to find out if I have ADHD, and...

[Video] How Do I Open up Emotionally to my Therapist?

How do I open up to my therapist? I am constantly worried that he might think I’m trying to get attention. I have an eating disorder and I’m slightly overweight according to my BMI.

Not Sure Who I Am Anymore

Hello, I am not so different from my peers in many ways, but now it feels like I’m an entirely different person on the inside.

Child’s Father Possibly is Dangerous

He and I have been together on and off for 3 years.
