Both My Children Have Died

In the last 2 years I have lost my 27 year old daughter, my 25 year old son and my mother. I don’t seem to care about anything anymore. I’m not sure how to live when I don’t care. I don’t have any energy. I could care less if I leave the house. Taking a shower and getting dressed takes a lot of effort. I don’t look foward to anything and nothing brings me...

Transgendered Girl?

There’s a girl I met at my college who seems cool, and is very pretty. We’ve hung out a few times and things seem to be going well but a question she recently asked has me concerned. She said, “How would you react if u were with a girl who u love, and she reveals to u that she was born a guy?” It could have been hypothetical but I’m not sure why she...

Inappropriate Behavior between Daughter, Stepdad

It came to my attention that my daughter (almost 17) was playing around with my husband (stepdad). They were poking, kicking, etc – just playing. She got up, went to the bathroom, took off her bra, came back to where he was and proceeded to take his hand and put it up her shirt onto her breast. The lines between the two of them have been blurred for quite some time. She has often...

Relationship Issue & PTSD

My boyfriend and I have an up and down relationship. He also has PTSD and I don’t think its only from Iraq. I think his past has a lot to do with it. He has called me names (which I actually don’t take offense too) or calls me dumb or stupid (I do HATE that though). He always react as in a split second, is irrational and blames me for most everything. Even the...

Pregnant and Feeling Useless

I lost my job last September and haven’t had one since. I was enjoying the time off for a while, but then found out I was pregnant a few months later. I didn’t resume looking for work because my pregnancy has been considered high-risk due to previous miscarriages. I did not want to jeopardize this pregnancy by working. My boyfriend and I lost our house b/c it was in serious disrepair and we are...

Inequality in Relationship Commitment Level

I have been dating a woman for about months and suddenly asked for “Time Alone” – “Space” to sort things out in her life, stating she was “emotionally, financially streesed” even on her Facebook page. I honored her request, although this is the second time this has happened thus far in our relationship. After the first time, she swore she would never put me through that again, but obviously it did. I love...

Husband Has Trust Issues

My husband has trust issues, and therefore he divides himself into pieces and hands them to different women so if one piece is damaged he still has the other pieces safe. He can’t have one complete relationship-emotional and physical- with the same person. It took me a while to understand this and it hurt a lot at the beginning, but now I want to know if this can be fixed. He doesn’t want to...

Depression or Bipolar?

I served in the military for 7 years with two deployments to Afghanistan and two deployments to Egypt. When my first deployment ended 2008 (13 month tour), my best friend committed suicide and it hit me for a few months. After those few months I was then sent off to Egypt for two years. Upon arrival back to America from Jan 2011 – July 2011, I noticed I started drinking heavily but never caused...

I’m Overly Gullible

I am very open to suggestion. I believe what I am told, and then take it for real. It doesn’t matter who tells me something. It just depends who is telling me at the time, and then I get confused becuase people say many different things. As it could just be a general conversatoin, or it could be a partner, or it could be a proffessional. for example, A male police officer told me...
