Is This Person Bipolar or Schizophrenic?

I’ve met a guy on the Internet and after talking for a month we decided to stay together and start a long distance relationship. At the beginning I didn’t see anything wrong with him, he was very sweet with me and seemed having a full life. But then one day after having argued a little he started saying that he didn’t care about me anymore and that he didn’t want to be with me...

Concerned about My Mother

Hi. My mum is 58 and has lived a very unhealthy life. She had my brother at 16 and my father used to beat her — they would fight almost every day but he didn’t hit her every time. I’ve witnessed him burn her clothes etc. Later in life, she spiraled into a bad gambling addiction and as long as I’ve known her, she has had severe anxiety. We’ve never been able to get...

I Have Two Personalities I Switch Between at Will

I’m 14 and I have a past history of child abuse (I can’t remember though, I just heard it from my mom), I bounce between a personality I used to have when I was younger, a crazy wild chatty warm loud like personality that I have named Viola and a calm lazy cold kinda sad angry quiet personality. Me and my stepdad has nicknamed it Broken Mirror disorder because my problem doesn’t match MPD...

My Boyfriend Tries to Force Sex on Me

Me and my partner have been in a relationship for 5 years now and everything was fine until I got pregnant with our daughter. When I was pregnant I would find it hard to finish of sex with him due to uncomfort. One night I woke up to him touching me and masturbating, I had a go at him and told him not to do it again. This happened several times until I woke...

My 10-Year-Old Niece Seems On Edge

My sister is a single mother in her thirties. She is very immature, selfish and crippled by insecurities. She drinks herself asleep most nights. Daily she consumes at least 2 pints of beer. This is not my concern. What bothers me is she puts my niece in positions I feel a good mother wouldn’t. As I mentioned my sister drinks so most of the time before she passes out, she is obnoxious, loudly singing...

Are We Mutually Abusive?

I have been with my husband for 9 years and we have 3 young children. I recently came to the realization that he has been verbally and physically abusing me for virtually the entire relationship. He has always called me horrible names and said downright mean things. The physical abuse started shortly after my first child was born. He was drunk and pulled me outside by my hair and locked me out. Since that...

How to Kick Out an Abusive Partner

My partner of 6 years is an emotionally abusive alcoholic, who is currently on probation for his fourth DUI. He has no car, no driver’s license, and only recently got a part-time job after more than 2 years of self-imposed unemployment. Even though he is now making about $1,000/month, he still refuses to chip in for the rent or monthly bills. (His money goes toward beer, fast food for himself, and paying off his...

My Mother Is Going Crazy

I’m not talking about hearing voices in the head because thankfully she’s not that crazy, but recently she has some major belief issues. She recently got sucked into this whole “4 dimensions,” she truly and legitimately believes that her “soul wavelength” is equal to that of a god, and that god lives in the 4D or something. I of course am not really believing in that sort of ridiculous comment, so I try to...

And I find myself shutting my family out. I know this is a harmful relationship but I don’t know why I can’t...

Child Sexual Abuse Sprouting into Other Problems

I was sexually abused several times as a child growing up by family members. I have notified my parents and am seeking help now. I was recently diagnosed with PTSD and moderate depression, and while I feel better just by finally receiving help, I can’t shake off the feeling that it’s worthless. I can’t bring myself to care about not only about myself, but about family, friends, future. Or my little sister. I was...

I Think I Was Sexually Abused But Can’t Remember Specific Situation

When a family member like my mom or dad kisses me and hugs me, I feel disgusted/nasty/dirty/powerless, etc. probably because I see hugs and kisses as something inherently sexual, so I like affection from anyone who isn’t my family. I cried when a couple hours ago my mom forced me to hug her. I had extreme anxiety when I was a preteen (not as extreme today), and I self-cut a few times in those...
