Having Disturbing Thoughts

I’m 19 years old and the thing is I do see a therapist once a week and a psychologist, I’m even on medication and my parents and older brothers are here for me no matter what. But this doesn’t feel like something I can tell them. I talk to myself all the time, but I “pretend” I’m a different person. My real name is Anne.

Overly Sensitive to Criticism

Hi. I’m a 15 year old high school student. My problem is that I am so getting affected on the criticism of others. Like for example, my hair. I don’t like it because it’s not pretty and my schoolmates just don’t quit in insulting me. Sometimes, I can go out in the campus without minding my hair but when a certain person talks about it and tells it to me, I get sad and...

My mother has always mystified me. She is very uncomfortable showing her emotions, to the point where she has never said “I love you” to me, and my father sometimes forces her to say it to him. As I got older, I learned that she was different from other mothers by watching the way that mothers and daughters joked around or hugged one another. She would be uncomfortable showing affection in this way, and...

Is Work Friend Psychopathic?

At work I recently made friends/flirted with someone who was charismatic and charming. We hung out socially a bit but something seemed off. Then I read an article about psychopath and it was like I was reading his description. I did tons of reading after that and he fit every part of it.

Crying and Anger

Often I find myself more sad than happy. I don’t feel good enough to anyone, and when I try to say it to my family of a friend they always tell me to get over it. They tell me that I think the worlds out to get me when it really isn’t and I should stop acting the way I do. Sometimes I go to my room and regret even trying to talk to...
