‘Menopausal’ Mother

I’m 15 years old and I live in a well-off lifestyle with my parents and three other sisters. This summer me and my family moved from Connecticut — after 10 years — to Utah. Since the move there have been major issues that escalate in our family unit. However, one of them is particularly overwhelming. I have understood time and again the science and basic things behind menopause, but never truly embraced it. Because...

Parents Won’t Take Me to Get Help

So, I’m 15 and in my own opinion I think I’ve been depressed for a very long time, a few years. I’m always sad and irritable. I remember having moments of complete rage, but also moments where I feel depressed. I really want someone to help me, or get treatment or something. My parents think that if I were to be prescribed medicine that I wouldn’t be myself, and that I will get over...

My Dad’s Unkind Words

My dad is so unkind to me. He always calls me mean names like retard and bitch and fat. He tries to be a good father but nothing ever works and I can’t take being near him anymore. My mom tries to get him to stop and it never works. One time when I was telling him how I felt he laughed and when I brought up this family contract we signed promising to...

I’m Afraid of Myself & My Mind

Ever since I was little I’ve had bad thoughts and urges to do bad things, like harm other people. When my sister was born I often caught myself thinking of choking her and had dreams of such...

Daughter Mean to Her Brother

My 13-year-old treats her 11 year-old brother poorly much of the time. She won’t let him in her room, responds in a mean way when he tries to talk to her or asks her a question, and is just generally nasty to him much of the time. She is otherwise a perfectly nice and friendly teenager, has friends, etc. Her brother looks up to her and would do anything for her. How can I...

Handling Severe Anger Issues

I’ve always had an anger problem. Always. It’s just never been as intense as it has been for the past year. I could be laughing and enjoying life one second and in the blink of an eye any little thing could set me off and I have NO control over what I do. It is not ’til hours or even days later that I feel any type of regret or remorse for whatever it...

Erratic Uncontrollable Mood Swings and Anger

Since I was a child I’ve experienced extreme changes in mood with no explainable reason behind them. Counselors have always explained it as a result from physical and emotional abuse as a child. I’m almost 30 now, married with two children and have every reason in the world to be happy, but I never feel that way. My temper/attitude seems to be getting worse every year. I’ve noticed a pattern that falls into play...
