[Video] I’m a Fatso in a World of Barbie Dolls

A couple of years ago, I lost about 40 pounds due mostly to a supplement I was taking. I quit taking the supplement about a year ago, because info I read led me to believe it might not be safe. I have gained back most of the weight and I’m mad at myself and feel that the people who had admired me for my previous weight loss are now disappointed in me. Ironically–since I...

Can’t Figure Myself Out

First, I always feel like someone is watching me I have felt like that as long as I can remember. I have no self-esteem, I see myself as worthless, ugly, fat, and disgusting.

I have a negative attitude (of...

Is My Friend Sick with a Certain Disorder?

My friend had a break down recently. He tried to take his own life, this was done horrifically. In the process, he killed his long owned fish. Specifically said “pain is not real”.

He’s highly responsible as well and hygienic....

PTSD & Don’t Know What to Do

I have been on multiple deployments, recipient of the Purple Heart in combat. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and not on any drugs of any kind because I don’t want to be. The Army doctors are only interested in giving me drugs and since I am not suicidal there is nothing they can do for me. For the past 2 years I have felt more and more socially isolated. I spend my days...

Getting Tired of Taking Meds

Hello. I’ve seen different psychiatrists over the past few years, and each have different diagnosis (#1 “Can’t say bipolar completely, so depression” #2″Depressive Personality” #3″Depression” #4″Resistant-Treatment Depression” #5(Unknown) #6″Bipolar Depression”). I see both a psychologist and psychiatrist. From my point of view, my psychologist is anti-meds, and my psychiatrist is pro-meds. My psychologist says taking all these meds (which I’ve been trimming and it’s been hard) enable me and don’t allow for my true...

It seemed minor so I brushed it off. Turns...

Can a Bad Early Experience Still be Affecting Me?

When I was in 1st grade, we did this thing where we were allowed to play on the computers in the classroom. I had a computer, but I noticed that another kid didn’t have one, so I told him we could share. I was wearing a dress that day, and while we were playing on the computer, he slipped his hands up my dress and into my underwear and… You know molested me. I...

Admiring Jeffrey Dahmer: Should I Get Help?

I appear to be “normal” yet I still have the desire to do psychopathic actions. I am currently growing up with a supporting, loving, middle class family. I am in the IB program, so i am very educated. On the outside, my life appears to be great, but in my mind, I struggle. I have strong desires to kill. I do not want to, but in my mind, it is almost like 2 people...

I Need a Life Goal

I need a reason to live, but I urge you kindly not to post answers similar or bordering towards “think about all the people who cares about you” or “everyone has a purpose”, I am neither religious nor suicidal, at least not anymore. I’m just tired of being trapped in a pointless universe where we, the human race, only live to satisfy our ego. (Or super ego if you want to go all psycho-...
