Wife’s Issues Harming Children

I am fairly convinced that my wife has some degree of bi-polar disorder. She goes into fits of rage over any question about her, her parents or upbringing. She constantly belittles me and talks bad about my family to the children. It has escalated in recent years with her attempting to push me, going into 20 minute tirades where she brings up everything that I had done over the last 12 years and her...

Toxic Friend

Hi, one of my friends that I have is becoming very toxic to me and I don’t know what to do. She and I met over a decade ago when we worked in the same place. She is on the one hand, tries to be nice, loyal, helpful if I have a difficult situation, knows me well, etc. but on the other hand, she is a very bitter, critical and harsh person- and lately...

Fiance Sets Too Many Boundaries

My fiance and I are in a long distance relationship. We were dating and engaged for 4 years before I broke up with him and relocated across county. We have now been back together a year but the demons from the past are cropping up again. We do fight, sometimes vehemently when it comes to how I choose to spend my free time. It was like this in the past. I’ve been a bit...

I Believe That My Girlfriend Raped Me

Today while we were both in respective dark depressed moods, my girlfriend jumped on me and started kissing me very forcefully. I told her I really did not want to and pushed her aside. I got up and she came up to me, pulled down my pants and started groping for my penis. I pushed her away but she kept forcing and forcing herself on me. I clearly repeated ‘no’ many times. Eventually I...

Dealing with My Partner’s Depression

My current boyfriend and I have been dating for about 3 1/2 years and living together for about 3 years. We are in a band together and rely on this for most of our income. Since I’ve known him, he has dealt with minor depression. I believe it is due to having a hard childhood, constantly being passed around in foster families that treated him badly. He has always been able to deal it...

Troublesome Roommate

My roommate has been exhibiting concerning behavior lately. He is a very private person, and it seems like he has a lot of social anxiety. I don’t know him any better now then when he moved in 7 months ago. Lately, my husband and I have noticed that he is vomiting a lot. Usually it starts around 9-10p, sometimes later, and will continue often throughout the night. I am concerned that he is either...

Hearing Voices

Hi, I hear voices in my head. It’s been going on for 3 years now. At first i heard a woman calling my name over and over. She sounded very gentle and calm, gradually I began to hear a very aggressive male voice as well. They ask questions like “Are you okay” or “Why did you do that”. It sounds like it’s coming from behind me, but so close like they could be just...

No One Believes Me

I think I have suffered long-term sexual abuse, but am not sure. I was laying down for a nap one day and all of a sudden a memory of miscarrying a baby popped in my head. I remembered everything so clearly, but the idea just came out of nowhere. It was so out of the blue. Later, I was doing homework for a psychology class and I got this image in my head of...

Is My Mother Mentally Ill?

I am here because I’m losing hope and I’m running out of options. I’m here because u have many reasons to believe my mother is a paranoid schizophrenic. She is a single 56 year old woman with 4 children. Three boys and me, the youngest and only daughter. I have a very bad relationship with my mother because she lacks trust with me and she always thinks I’m out to get her. For example,...

My Father Fears Me

To many people, I come off as the typical man. I’ve played sports and attended school while excelling in both. I seem like I am a fun person with a great demeanor. However, I feel like my emotions are sensitive and people don’t really understand me. I have always been angry and slightly manic. I have become good at repressing most of my volatile emotions in fear of my public image. Lately though, I...

Hallucinating?

Please help me understand this. Because of money reasons I had to move and stop seeing my therapist. Twice now I have seen her when she isn’t really there. Once I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and when I was washing my hands I saw her behind me. I called her name and asked her a few questions. The image I saw of her reached out...

What’s Wrong with My Wife?

My wife’s erratic behavior has gotten me tied in knots. She’s acting like she did before we got married, like she did when she was 15-18. She lives like two people. We had an “intervention” a couple of weeks ago. I have three children all with either spouses or are in a serious relationship. Two live outside of home & my son is graduating university this spring. She has talked so terribly about me...
