Avoidance or Something More?

I was afraid of heights, afraid of dogs, afraid of water (I never learned to swim or even ride a bicycle). I missed out on many things because of fear and insecurity. That is probably where I...

Is This Love?

I guess I’ll just start from the beginning. I met my boyfriend during my junior year of college in Florida. We started out as friends for a couple of months. He was my marijuana dealer. I was a student, who worked as an exotic dancer and the local strip clubs with my wild group of girlfriends. I’d had plenty of experience with men and dating, but no serious relationships up to that point. He...

Miserable and without Help

Mother Excessively Criticizes My Weight

This year I will be a junior at a prestigious university that not only I attend but a university where I am a varsity swimmer and in a sorority. Between the stress of the school workload, the pressures to improve as an athlete and to make new friends I have gained about 20 pounds in the last two years. Some of that weight is muscle mass from increased weight training but much of it...
