No Therapist Will Treat Me

I had severe depression six months ago that culminated with my hospitalization after a suicide attempt. After I was released, I enrolled in a partial program where my parents live, so I could use them as a support system. A month later, after completion of the program with great results, I returned to school. Since the program was not in the same state as my school, they could not connect me with follow up...

Stomach pain and I think I’m having an appendicitis, and the list goes on. I find it hard to sleep at night as I...

I Lied About Having a Terminal Illness

I told my ex about the lie after months of carrying on the lie. He was with me through false pretenses of me being “sick” and has now cut off all contact with me. His family has informed me that they will file restraining orders if I contact him. I need help for myself. But I also don’t think any amount of therapy will help without him in my life to help me through...

I have the same every day issues as others, financial or job or parenting issues, but to me these things are devistating. I realize they should not be so, and that they will probably pass, but I can’t handle them. For example, I have a new...

Should I Give Boyfriend Another Chance?

I discovered recently that my boyfriend of 1 and a half years had been talking to a girl online. I have since seen their conversations, and he told her he had a girlfriend, but made it seem like it wasn’t a big deal. They flirted and talked about a few sexual topics, and he implied that I was pretty much his roommate. What I was also troubled by is the fact that they also...
