Depression, On Meds & Still Have Issues

I am a very blessed person with a great support group. I have depression and am on Celexa 20 mg 1 daily for it. I’ve been on it for probably 1 1/2 years. Lately I’ve been noticing more of my depression symptoms – lack of drive, crazy emotions, crying for no reason, illogical thoughts, fatigue and tiredness, lack of hunger, etc. I’m wondering if I should try to talk with my dr. to up...

Sexually Confused

I’m 18 and for some time I have been debating whether or not I’m gay, bi, or neither. The thing is that I am really turned on to other males from a physical perspective, but the thought of having sex with another male isn’t all that appealing. In addition I feel like emotionally loving another male, would just feel weird and awkward. I have guy friends, none of which whom I’m attracted to and...

Is Fiance Mentally Ill?

I have been dating my boyfriend (age 31) on and off for almost 3 years. Most of the time we have a very loving, affectionate and deeply connected, positive relationship. However, several times a year we go through shorter periods of extremely rocky times that seem to be triggered by his stress level surrounding change or physical discomfort (ex: when he gets sick, when he broke his finger, when he considered switching jobs, etc.)....
