Am I Schizophrenic, Too?

My sister was diagnosed schizophrenic recently. After researching it and dealing with her, I am worried I have it. I have believed for a long time that I can know peoples thoughts, feelings, and problems. I believe they can know mine. I get scared to think about things without having tons of blankets on, because it protects me from them knowing what I think about or feel. when i think under blankets i can...

Ready to Make Friends — but How?

I am supposedly starting college in august after 2 years of going through financial aid hell. I had to get a job straight after high school and I have saved up my money. I’ve never really been one to make friends; I had maybe a small group of people I talked to in high school, but I’ve always sat alone. Unfortunately for me, everyone left high school and went off to enjoy their lives...

[Video] I Feel Ashamed about Being Molested as a Child

I’ve started thinking of my past life and how naive I was. Then horrible memories have come back to me. When I was around 9 going to 10 I was molested by a teenager. It made me cry almost thinking how stupid I was by listening to the molester telling me what to do and threatening to tell my parents what he did. I thought I would get in trouble so I let him...

Curious about Categorization

This isn’t an urgent question, just something I’ve been pondering lately. When I was a kid, probably 11 or 12 though I can’t say for sure, I got the idea in my head that the world was going to come to an end in my lifetime. This wasn’t a religious thing–I grew up in the 80s and early 90s so it might’ve been due to the fascination in our culture with apocalyptic scenarios, coupled...

(we have two years of age gap so I was 16) It was midnight or so, late nevertheless. I was watching a movie with him in his room, when suddenly he sat behind me and started fondling my breasts. I didn’t know what to...

What Do I Do with my Wife?

I have a problem with my wife (Age 30) and I have reached a point where I do not know how I should deal with her. We have been married for over 10 years with 4 kids, all under 10.

He said he was from a satanic family and his father did terrible things to him and siblings. He\’s told...
