My Parents Don’t Like My Boyfriend

I’m 20 years old and I’ve been with my boyfriend for 5 years. We love each other very much and I’m very happy with him. He completes me.

Do I Have an Eating Disorder?

My parents have been very concerned about my eating lately. They tell me that I’m not eating enough and I’m losing weight too fast and exercising. I know that I don’t eat as much as my family, but they are all overweight. I generally eat under 500 calories a day, and walk 3-10 miles, enough to burn at least all that I ate. I don’t throw up often, and I make sure I get...

[Video] How Do I Tell My Parents I Want Therapy?

These past few months have been different for me. I don’t feel complete. I have no hobbies, romantic relationships, or sports that I enjoy, whereas it seems everyone I know has these things. I belong to a middle class family and we have plenty of money and things, but something in my life is missing. I want to ask my parents if I can see a therapist or someone, but I’m too embarrassed and...

Dying, Anger & ADD

Well I didn’t used to be like this. Recently, id say within the last 6 months or so, ive had uncontrollable anger issues. I keep getting mad at everyone and throwing things or screaming over the smallest, stupidest(is that a word?), stuff and I know that its something that isn’t worth getting mad about but I do and cant control it. Especially towards my family who have done nothing wrong but love me unconditionally....

Mother and Daughter Switching Roles

So, the thing is I haven’t been living with my mother for long years. She left when I was about 11. She was supposed to come back but she never did. We did, however meet occasionally and talked on the phone so, thanks to my hopes that she was soon coming back, we maintained very tight relationship. She wasn’t there for me when I was a kid and teenager and that made it hard...

I’m Afraid My Husband is Cheating

My husband and I have been married for 25 years.

For the last 8 months my husband has becoming increasingly distant. He works out twice a day coming home after midnight every night and usually I am asleep so I don’t see him....

[Video] Anger Management Issues?

Lately, I’ve been getting in trouble a lot at school and home. I think I have anger management. I always flip out at people, and I have a bad attitude. I get really stressed sometimes. I wonder if I have anxiety. I have a fear of being ignored or forgotten. Me and my mom get along for the most part, but when we fight, it’s bad. We say rude things to each other that...

Why am I Staying with my Boyfriend?

OMG I am so confused and so frustrated by my confusion. If I am leaving my boyfriend and I know for sure that I am, then why do I care where he goes, who he’s with, what he does or who he does? It doesn’t make any sense to me! I don’t love him, never have, never will. And now I am to the point where I really don’t even like him. The entire...

Does My Husband Have a Disorder?

I fear my husband’s paranoia and anger is getting worse. I use to joke about my husband being “paranoid” and always “assuming” the worst. I thought he did it jokingly but it’s getting worse. If I’ve cooked a meal and it doesn’t come out right he will tell me that I knew it was gonna come out that way and that’s why I cooked it so I could waste the food he bought with...
