Lost Hope

For the past couple of years, I have suffered from moderate to severe depression. For several months, I was on Zoloft which created more problems for me than it solved. During the time I was on it, I had a suicide episode and a friend helped me through those times. Late in 2011, I had a “relaxation period” and it felt like I had recovered until September of this year when I relapsed. These...

Sociopath?

I was subjected to repeated abuse and trauma from age 2 until about 5. I’ve had several other traumatic experiences both physical and mental since then. In school I never fit in with others (fighting, manipulation, terrorize) finding them to be mindless robots that have no real purpose too easily controlled, a feeling that hasn’t gone away in adulthood. It has reached the point that the simple act of paying a bill in person,...

Do I Have Depression?

Hello, I was hoping to get an expert’s opinion on this before I seek help. I think I may have clinical depression. I’m not going to get too much into my personal life since I’m supposed to keep this years now, I’ve been feeling very down. Nothing has really excited me and in general I have a pretty negative outlook on life. I feel completely hopeless both in my current situation and while...

Self-Sabotage

I am a horrible person, but people still love me, I have a lot of friends and I don’t deserve them. I decided that my best friend deserves better than me, but she wouldn’t do anything about it so I ruined her birthday party the best I could. All she wanted to do was spend time with me and it was my goal to make her miserable. I’m selfish when things don’t go my...

Unstable Emotions, Difficulty In Speech

I have always been an unhappy person. However, for about 3 years this feeling has become much more intense. I think of death and suicide almost every morning, with no concrete reason actually. I have no friends. And although my boyfriend is the only person who I am comfortable with, I often treat him very badly and I actually break his heart. When I receive a bad grade or when we cannot see each...

Boyfriend Molested a Child

i heard from four people (boyfriend’s co-workers) that he was bragging at a dinner party about how he had sex with a 12 year old. he said “he did everything with her, man! everything!” i’m sick to my stomach, but should his sex life be left in the past? we’ve been together four years, but had sex about ten times because he says he has erectile dysfunction. (now i’m beginning to have doubts). A:...

Brief Psychotic Symptoms & Possible Bipolar Disorder

Hello, I am inquiring about the plausible causes of some symptoms that I have experienced. Sometime during my prepubescent years, I believe to have had mild auditory hallucinations. Beginning shortly after laying my head down on a pillow at night, it often sounded like two people were conversing in the distance. It was never coherent, and when I would pick my head up to try and listen, it would abruptly stop. This was a...

Sophmore year of highschool, my father who had been in prison showered up at our house, and my mother who I hadnt spoken to started calling begging...

Am I Paranoid?

I have a suspicion that I may be suffering from some kind of paranoia. I have become almost constantly concerned about what other people think of me (even ones from my complete past) and if my actions have been, are, and will be the “correct” ones. There are times when I go through every moment, action, relationship, etc. that I can remember from my life, until I get scarily overwhelmed. I suppose I feel...
