Believing and Disbelieving Delusions

Hi, I have delusions that I believe in (for example if I get stressed about something in life I tend to believe in some “delusional thoughts” that I have, for example that some people in my family are alien/gods from outer space. When I’m feeling normal or happy I tend to believe in the delusions a lot less than usual, sometimes I feel confident enough to not believe in them at all. What type...

Afraid to Get Help

I’m turning 18 in a couple weeks. I’m a female that has been dealing with Bipolar-like symptoms, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts since an event in my family at the age of 12. It has been a long, tiring road, and around January of this year I developed an eating disorder. Some days I accept that I need help, but am too afraid to seek it, while other days, I am in complete denial and...

Is My Boyfriend Anorexic?

I’ve been actually worried about this since I’ve met him. He always seemed to have this constant concern of how he looks–especially when it comes to his body. He had even explained once that he wanted to get rid of this supposed “fat” on his lower abdomen (he was literally pinching skin and his stomach was totally concave). I told him (in the past) that I think he’s a bit too thin, so he...

Is Humiliation a Valid Treatment?

My 10 year old daughter threw a huge fit and threw a plastic child gate accross the room. After sending her to her room to cool off, we talked to her, let her know it’s okay to have and express emotions, but we needed to find a better way of doing so. Knowing that she would not do this at school, we also asked her what was different about this situation. Her response was...

Don’t Know What’s Wrong with Me

My mom is bipolar and I’m starting to wonder about my own emotional state. Everyone complains that I’m too depressed all the time. I do feel down a lot and I don’t talk much. I’m also kinda confused.

Home Videos Depress Me

For a long several years now, I’ve been unable to watch family home videos, without feeling really bad. It hasn’t been officially diagnosed by a doctor that I have depression, but I know I have it. I’ve known that I’ve had it for about 4 years now. My question though, is why I’m unable to watch videos of myself when I was really little. The last time I watched a home video of myself,...

Unsure of My College Education

I am about to graduate from high school and I am still undecided about what I am going to do with my life. I have looked and looked for things that I could possibly pursue a career in, but I haven’t really found anything of interest, or if I have, I am scared that I will not succeed in it, or will do badly in that class. If you could just give me some...

I don’t remember how long it took me, but I said yes. (He would say something like “I really wanna ask you something, but I know you’ll say no” and I would spend like ten minutes prying it out...
