Virginity Hindering My Chances at Love

I’m a 31 year old virgin male. Beyond the obvious pain and humiliation of never having had sex (I prefer not to wait until marriage), I genuinely fear I will never have sex or love because so many women want a man my age with experience in bed. I don’t know how to approach this issue; I feel like when I do bring it up I get lip service about how it’s okay but...

Having Cynical Thoughts for Years

I don’t really know how to start this, but there is just almost constant voice in my mind that is always putting me down. Every time I make a mistake, even if its as simple as forgetting a word in my speech (I compete in speaking contests) the voice will pop in and say ‘You’re so stupid, no wonder no guy will ever love you or want you’ Its always telling me that I’m...

I Am Having Trouble with a Bunch of Things

I wanted to say thank you for reading this first of all. Here’s the thing: When it comes to school there is one thing that always worries me when I leave the house which would be my classmates. In certain classes there can be huge annoyances because they think that i am “gay” or “homo” and they don’t listen to my protests of said annoyances because they think i’m stupid and weak. This situation...

Am I Insane?

Hi. I’m gonna resume my life so you understand why I’m asking if I’m insane. Basically, my parents were both drug addicts before they had me. They quit when they found out mom was pregnant and then moved in with my paternal grandparents. My dad, although he quit drugs, he did not quit drinking and became an alcoholic. He spent most of his time hitting mom and she would hit him back. After mom...

My Parents Hate Me

I am 16 years old and an only child, both my parents live in the same house, but they are divorced. This alone means that they are almost constantly yelling at each other about various things, but in the end they always blame me for their arguments. My household has been like this for as long as I can remember. Recently though my father hasn’t been coming home much and when he does he...

Abusive Boyfriend

Sadly I know the answer to my question but I guess I’m looking for confirmation. I have been with my boyfriend for over four years now. The first three months were bliss but since then I’ve been going through hell. He hits me occasionally once every two months or so but what hurts me the most is he calls me stupid, bitch,idiot,fat etc…EVERYDAY. He says I’m too sensitive and I provoke him to treat...

What’s Wrong with Me?

I was just wondering if somebody could possibly give me an idea of what an official diagnosis would be like for me. I’ve been raped, abused, etc… My mother was an alcoholic my entire childhood and she was never there. She exchanged alcohol for pills and now uses those instead. My father randomly had a stroke and a seizure last August and it caused an aneurysm to burst, so he passed away two days...

Pregnant and Dating an Alcoholic

I’m 20 years old, and 7 months pregnant. I’m dating a guy whom I met in the party lifestyle when I was 19. We fell in love… The day I got pregnant, he told me he would quit all his habits with me to make everything work out for our new family. It lasted about 6 months. He’s drinking again, and doing cocaine as well. I used to be the same way before I...

Overcoming Barriers to Getting Help

When I was in high school I was depressed. Not seriously so, just a constant hurt that wouldn’t go away. I was prescribed some medication by my doctor and was seeing a therapist once a month. Medications didn’t seem to improve anything and was eventually taken off them. Therapy continued but I felt like I was being rushed, and that I was wasting her time which she could be using to help someone worse...

Still in Love with Ex

I have encountered a problem which I cannot share with anyone close to me because I am afraid they will judge me. You see, I am in a very healthy, happy relationship with a great guy whom I can honestly say I fell deeply in love with when we met. He is very good at being there for me and he accepts all of my faults and loves me for who I am. To...

Visual and Auditory Hallucinations

My 17-year-old son has been having visual and auditory hallucinations with no other symptoms. He’s outgoing, heavily involved in athletics and gets good grades. He denies nor shows any signs of depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety or schizophrenia. He has no medical diagnoses and takes no medication. He doesn’t use drugs and has been screened several times. The hallucinations began two years ago and were minor, like seeing things out of the corner of his...

15 and Relying on Alcohol

Hey I am 15, been home schooled my whole life. Never had friends and I am a outcast. Females hate me I am tired of seeing all these girls with a bunch of female friends partying or at the beach. I have no friends at all. I love psychology, serial killer stories and horror movies, dramatic photography and gore. I cry myself to sleep and cry all the time. I have broke down recently....
