Best Friend Went “Crazy”

Hi, I came here to this site because I really don’t know what else to do. I guess I will try to explain as best I can and sincerely hope I hear back soon. So last night my best friend of 5 years claimed that he had an “epiphany” and that he had been spoken to by God. Now neither me nor him are very religious at all and it came as a shock...

Confront my Stepmother?

I have anger and sadness, and my parents’ actions don’t help nor do my medications. When I was younger, I was diagnosed with PTSD because of physical and sexual abuse I received as a child. Now-a-days, I am on 15mg of Abilify and 10mg of Lexapro for PTSD and Major Depressive Distorter. But I am still extremely irritable and I often think of self mutilation, once again (I had self mutilated as a younger...

Depressed Sister

My sister is now 25 years old. Since she was born, she has had a very difficult personality. As a child she would have terrible tantrums, screaming out loud, and not giving up until my exhausted parents (frequently) gave in. In school she would often procrastinate on studying for tests. When the deadline was very close she would panic and cry, and scream for help, and make everybody in the house feel terrible with...

Future Fears

I don’t know how my future will turn out. I am a girl with very little confidence in myself, I am always the person in the dark corner. My dream is to be a pilot when I grow up and go to college. Many people in my life say I don’t have a future or am too stupid to even get a job. I am starting to believe it with my poor grades. I...

Feeling Guilty About Inappropriate Sexual Feelings

As a boy my grandfather took pictures on me naked and in my underwear and had lots of verbal abuse from my father. I don’t remember any other abuse, but all I remember is undressing in front of my grandfather while taking pictures of me. I don’t blame my father for his verbal actions as his father probably did worse to him. I’ve come to understand a humans’ actions and why things are “passed...

My husband and his family treating newly found daughter as if she was the center of the universe.

I Think I Have Social Anxiety Disorder

I’m a junior in high school and I’ve never had any friends in school or outside of school. I was bullied from 5th grade to my sophomore year. It got so bad I begged my mom to let me be homeschooled. I have always been a shy person especially in school. Sometime during the summer of 2009 is when my shyness got extreme. I left my old school and went to a new school...

What if My Mom is Having an Affair?

I am an 18 years old freshman in college. I was enjoying my life more and more every day till today. I used an iPhone app to check my minutes this morning. When I accidentally scrolled to my mom’s part of the PDF bill, I found she has been calling this same person almost everyday. My mom doesn’t like to social, so most of her friends are from work. I know this person can’t...
