Problem Passed Down through Generations

I have been married for 23 years. My husband used to be more affectionate but it has waned over the years. It is however, not completely gone.

11 Years Old and Feeling Different

Okay, so I’m 11 and this is the first time I am using this site and I am hoping that this site will take me seriously, other than other websites that simply spammed my question. So I’ve been feeling very anxious, paranoid, and sad lately. Everything I have done had no effort put into it, which is unusual, since everything I do has a whole bunch of effort put into it. I do have...

Showing Signs Of Schizophrenia & Bipolar?

All of my life I’ve seen or heard hallucinations. Whether they be simple voices saying, “Over here!” while being all alone, or waking up to seeing a person on my ceiling that isn’t there, it’s happened all my life. I’ve never discussed this with anyone, either, in fear of being put into a mental institution. But recently, I’ve been showing signs of bipolar disorder. I know it isn’t accurate to self-diagnose, but I spoke...

Just Shy or Something More?

I can manage a nice smile...
