I quit my job that I have had since high school to be at home with the children ( I have no experience with children prior and have had to jump in head first). I never resented...

But lately, my daughter is obsessed. It consumes her thoughts to the point she thinks of nothing else all day everyday and bursts out into tears all of the time. I do not know how...

Can’t Forget Girlfriend’s Past

My girlfriend and I have been together for about a year now. When we first began dating she always brought up one of her partners and I just so happened to know him. She told me he was her first in a sexual experience and told me some of their stories later on in the relationship. This has been bothering me deeply, I find myself sometimes thinking about it daily and comparing myself to...

It escalated to the point today that my sister, the oldest, is going to be booking an appointment with the psych for my mom and...

Fear of Therapy, Depression

I need therapy. I have depression which has been getting worse. I have even started cutting myself. THE problem is, I’m scared to go. I’m afraid they are going to commit me to an institution and diagnose me as crazy. I know it seems irrational and inaccurate, but I’m still terrified. I cry when I even think about it. I know there is nothing for me to worry about. How do I stop being...

Sibling Suicide Attempt

My family this past year has been dealing with my sisters suicide attempt. Since the attempt my parents started by asking me if I was alright for weeks on end, then they have turned to not talking to me or blaming me for the majority of the bad things that happen at home. My mother won’t even talk to me anymore and if she is it is to only yell at me, I’m still...

Constant Failure

At the moment, I’m so mad at myself. It seems like everything I do just goes wrong and it’s bothering me and whenever I try to change a habit, I give up on myself so easily. Right now, I can’t go back to college because I owe money and I decided to go to an expensive private which is an avoidable mistake. Yesterday, I failed my license test for the third time because I...

A little over two years ago I lost my father to pancreatic cancer. I left my friends and my life on the east coast to help mom take care of him. Before he passed he and my mother adopted my young niece and nephew. After his passing I stayed on to help her with the kids. She decided she no longer wanted to live where my father had passed, so we moved out west....
