42 and Hates His Life

My issue is I feel very beat down by life. I am in a relationship that seems to fit the mold of dysfunctional. I have little or no money despite having a well paying job. My lack of money means I don’t do anything or go anywhere other than work and home. I work the graveyard shift and have very few friends that I interact with due to my odd schedule (truth be told...

Visual Hallucinations & Urges to Do Strange Things

Hello, for the past few months I have started to have strange visual hallucinations. Usually when I see things I become scared; I turn on the sink and blood comes out or a man will be standing by the top of the stairs when I’m walking up to my room. The hallucinations last seconds. I know that what I am seeing is not real but at the same time when it happens I am...

His insults and...

Why is There No Shame in Seeking Therapy?

I have often heard or read that “There is no shame in seeking #8221; (or any kind of help), but I have never been told why. Being unable to cope with something on my own is weakness, there is no other way of seeing it. There really is not. Inability to do something theoretically possible is the same as being too weak to do it and -assuming I have free will- controlling my actions...

Parents Don’t Want Me to Leave Home

From Australia. I’m 25 but my parents always treat me half my age. Everyone is either getting married/having kids at my age already. I’m the eldest and they have always been too strict and over controlling. They tell me no one leaves home at my age- even though my cousins my age have. I can’t stand them. They also play favourites and and are lax with my siblings. I want to leave desperately. I...

Are All Families Like This?

My family has always been protective, but is this too much? I’m a quiet person who likes to be by herself but my parents don’t ever let me be alone. When I go bike riding, they follow right behind me with the car. I can’t go on walks alone because they will also tag along. They always need to know where I am and they randomly show up to pick me up when I...
