At Relationship Crossroads

I am 23 years old and have been with my boyfriend since I was 16. We have a lot in common as far as morals, values, families, etc. However, we do not necessarily have common “interests” and not many mutual friends, but then again… my interests are very girly and his are very masculine. We fit well together and I know he is very trustworthy, loyal, and would be an amazing father and husband...

Am I Depressed?

I have been having trouble sleeping and occasionally suffer from nightmares. I always feel as though I am worthless and feel like I am guilty and should be punished. I often feel unloved or uncared although I am sure I am. I feel like I am an inconvenience to everyone and that I am worthless. I think that I am ugly and am a bad person. I have thought about suicide but I have...

So, she has cried asking me not to get old. Today before school she started crying because she didn’t want to get old because she didn’t want to die. I tried telling her that it’s part...

He wasn’t a blood cousin he was by marriage. Anyway not long after that...

Don’t Know What’s Wrong with Me

From New Zealand: That heading kinda said what was wrong but you might need a few more details. A couple of years ago when I was 17 my doctor put me on anti depressants as I was depressed for what I know of 2 – 3 years. Early the following year 5 days after my 18th birthday I attempted suicide and I had no reason for it. I just felt like I deserved to...

Infatuation with a Female Musician

Lacking Motivation

Q: So I graduated high school, by now I thought I’d be a famous musician. Sadly this has not been the case. I’ve lived with my parents for a year doing absolutely nothing but playing games because I can’t afford to do anything else and nobody has been hiring, when I check up with the hiring manager they just tell me they’ll call me if they need me… Games have gotten boring, I’m tired...

Depression For No Reason?

I’ve been having issues ever since this summer. I’ve always been very healthy, mentally and physically. I got into pot and alcohol in college, but not much. I was responsible and wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize my schooling. Last summer, I had a panic attack that lasted 3 to 4 hours. I took a hit of weed and almost immediately felt like I was having a heart attack. Then I paced for 3 hours...
