My Friends Are Extremely Depressed & Have A Suicide Pact

Since last year, I have discovered that many of the people around me are depressed. I, myself, are on and off,(a little portion of the bipolar in my gene pool.)

Now, I have learned that, despite counseling, the thoughts have returned. Another one of my friends, who has...

I recently started seeing a therapist at my University because of anxiety, and I want to tell her about something that happened 4 years ago that I’ve never told anyone. I was 15.

My Wife Is Explosive

I am writing to find a manner to cope with or gain insight into my wife’s behavior. There are probably multiple areas but I will attempt to summarize in the allotted space. Today she went into a tirade which concluded with her typical threat to leave with the children and string of insults after I made a face at an uncleaned room (not directed at her). To provide the backdrop, I am never certain...

Afraid of Middle-Aged Men

Back story of my problem. When I was a child my step-father molested me. Since then, I have this irrational fear of white middle-aged men that are bigger than me. As soon as they grow elderly and feeble that fear dissipates, and up until they are middle-aged (under 40-ish) they are awesome. For the longest time I ignored my phobia, realizing that it was silly to fear every white middle aged man that crossed...
