Lack of Trust

Me and my boyfriend have been going out for about a year and a half now. We have had a good healthy relationship and we are both good to each other. One day I was seeing what he was up to and I caught him talking to this other girl from Xbox live. He said they had just met and that it was a coincidence. The girl however told me that they had been...

Need Advice about Depression & Anxiety

I always feel like somebody’s watching me, and I feel like I’m a failure all the time. I feel like neither my parents nor my sister are proud of me, and I feel disappointing. I often have problems staying with a lot of people at the same time, and feel like everybody judges me. I often think about how I would kill myself, and I’m often scared for no particular reason. I haven’t felt...

Can’t Talk to My Therapist

Currently in therapy for depression issues. Have recently found out I’m unable to have children and need a hysterectomy. Have gone through infertility treatments and have had 2 miscarriages. Was in therapy for that and also dealt with sexual assault when i was 14. I’m seeing the same therapist as before and am really struggling. I shut down when I’m there. I feel angry at people who have children-she has 2. She knows this....

Depression or Typical Adolescent Behavior?

I been feeling so “sad” lately. I have trouble sleeping now, not doing so well in school, and I feel excluded from my social life. I used to be a happy go lucky, always talking to my friends, playing and other things. But now, I feel all alone in the world. I get random headaches and I get so much stress and I’m only 11! I know it’s probably not the best idea to...

Should I Continue to Cope with His Anger?

Married 36 yrs (don’t know how I’ve hung in this long!) Yesterday when driving home he was speaking to our adult daughter about what a mechanic said needed repaired on her car but he didn’t have a price to give her. Husband started screaming and cursing so violently that she bawled for ten minutes… ;-( As her mother, I felt terrible that this loving father can “turn so MEAN” I texted him “WTH is...

Depressed and Heartbroken

I am depressed from my breakup with my boyfriend of 5 years. All I feel is a heavy painful feeling of heartbroken in my chest. I can’t sleep or eat. I cry every hour. I don’t know how to get past it. I wanted to kill myself last night but I didn’t. Please help. A: I am very glad you chose to write us here rather than do something to try to hurt yourself....

Can’t Trust Cheating Boyfriend

About a year ago my best friend of mine and I admitted our feelings for one another. Previously, we had a long standing friends-with-benefits relationship. Shortly after, we entered a more serious relationship. During the first 5 month period I was under the impression that we were serious and exclusive. Unfortunately, it was brought to my attention that he was with multiple other girls, including one he had had a past with who was...

Friend Won’t Help Himself

I have this friend, we know each other for about 15 years now (he’s 27 years old). Three years ago he broke up with his girlfriend and never been the same person again. From an active and funny guy he became a loner, a dreamer. I thought it’s just the typical break-up, so i did what friends do on these occasions: listened to him and got him drunk in a few occasions. But, since...

Troublesome Boyfriend

My boyfriend and I just got engaged and I’m not sure we should go through with our wedding. I think he may have asked me just to make me happy. We were supposed to book months ago but he has dragged his feet. I think he may not even intend to do it. My fiancĂ© is (I feel) utterly incapable of telling me the truth. He has made up fictional jobs on at least...

Parents’ Drinking is Hurtful

My parents enjoy drinking every night which is not a problem, except that my mom changes. She becomes mean and wild. She had to get surgery once and she was intoxicated where she said when she wakes up she hopes she never see’s me agin. Another incident was when she told me all her problems started once I was born. She is constantly hurting me and this has been going oon for at least...

Love or Familiarity?

I apologize if this query seems a little childish, or unimportant, but it’s something that is getting me down beyond belief and I felt it was worth asking to see if I can get a little advice. I started a new job two months ago and have befriended every member of staff at the bar – but one. He’s my age, a very argumentative and stubborn guy who just will not ‘let me #8217;...

Is My Girlfriend Disassociating?

I have been with my partner for over 6 years. In times of high stress, she will “go to her box” as she calls it, and another personality will take her place in the world for a while. She says she “goes to her box” to get away from the stress and that there is a faceless young girl in the box with her each time. This is NOT the person who takes over...
