Obsessed with Sandy Hook Victim

I’m very broken up about the deaths of the Sandy Hook victims. One in particular has captured my heart. I find myself looking at his pictures every day & trying to look for info on him & his family. I have a girl his age & a son who looks like him. I feel that if people stop tweeting or FBing about him, he’ll be lost, reduced to a statistic. I’ve tried channeling my...

Can’t Solve Disagreements Between Mom and Sister

My mother and sister are in deep conflict currently, and have been for a little while. We are still young teenagers and I think my sister has reached that point in young life that I can’t really explain(socially related). My sister feels she is being controlled by our mother and feels she has hit rock bottom with stress, friends, school, etc. From my point of view, my mother has been a little bit restrictive,...

I was a bit crazy and reckless and sometimes got into trouble. After I was medicated I gained 150 pounds and now have a number of health issues. I was scheduled for weight loss surgery and met with the surgeon...

Grieving and Depressed, Maybe

My mom died 12 yrs ago . She is buried 1000 miles away. I have not been to her grave since we placed her there. I know her spirit isn’t in one place. But for some unreasonable reason I feel guilty and have been wanting to see her resting place. I can’t understand why I want to go there. I have the time and money but it is wasteful. Everyone in my family will...

Boring Life

I have no idea why I think like this when I have a good life. I’m 16. I have dealt with occasional self harm since October 2011, but since 2012 summer its become more frequent. Not really often, only every couple weeks. I just don’t know why I even cut anymore, I just get caught up in the moment of anger or anxiety, so I cut myself. Ever since I was 12 years old,...

Fiance Has Untreated DID

My fiance has multiple personalities — he has not been diagnosed with DID but after research (and talking to the other personalities) I have no doubts. The personality of greatest concern is a 2 year old. My fiances parents do not know of his disorder, nor does anyone in my family. He does not wish to seek a therapist because he doesn’t want to be officially diagnosed — he doesn’t want it on his...

Problem Staying in Relationships

She moved her stuff in my apartment and things went well for the first 3 motnhs after that I started feeling a little stressed and anxious about the relationship. She suffers from anxiety and when I do things to worry her I become more anxious (like a vicious circle). I talked to her about how I was feeling and she...

[Video] Minor Events Causing Major Panic Attacks

When something mildly bad or inconvenient happens, I have some sort of panic attack.  I’ve only been this way for about 5 years now, and I had no traumatic experience to trigger it.  The latest example: this morning I lost my bus pass and had to drive to class.  I couldn’t find a parking spot so I was going to be late.  Once I realized I was going to be late, I just snapped....
