Worried about a Sibling

I’m concerned about my little brother. He’s 17. In public, he comes across as thoughtful, well-spoken, well-read, and almost forcefully calm. But at home, we see a completely different side of him. He’s often irritable or hostile with little cause. His eating and sleep patterns are disturbed. I’ve seen him in very cynical moods where he would probably sleep for several days if our parents didn’t rouse him for meals and homework. During those...

Touch Repulses Me

(I am sorry for my poor english. I have been learning it only for five years) Since I was young my only friends were allways my classmates. I talked to them only at the school and walked as far from Skype or ICQ as I could. I were with them at the school, isn’t that enough? I thought it was normal and I was just a bit shy and liked my privacy. The same...

Both of my parents tried to kill themselves and as a teenager I would binge drink, take hard drugs, self harm and starve myself. Now I’m 21 and I’ll be honest, I thought I would just grow...

Why Do I Want to Be Unhappy ?

I’m a 38-year-old man who likes being unhappy. I have no idea why I like being unhappy. To be fair I do have challenges that make me this way, but I think my problem is I enjoy being sad. Is that possible? One challenge I have is work. My partner and I bought a business in a remote part of the country, which is now failing. I have not doubt that at some time...

Afraid of My Dad

I’m 12, almost 13 and my dad has had a bad childhood. Its seems like he wants me to have the same fate. I remember quite a few times when he was really mad at me, but the earliest I can remember is age 7, he was picking me up from girl scouts and when I got in the pick-up I said I wanted my mom to pick me up. He got really mad...

Concerned about My Sister

I’m concerned about my 21 yo sister. She recently returned from a trip to France with a friend. I’ve noticed some odd behavior patterns that began when she returned home. She excessively washes her hands and can only use a tissue or washcloth to do so. And she also uses a tissue to open a door as well. And she’s also been very irritable and “snappy” with family too. She showers daily also. I’ve...
