Do I Have Dermatillomania?

I am a non-gender binary 15 year old. I’ve recently learned of dermatillomania and think I do have it. I was wondering if you could provide me with your opinion? I was sexually abused when I was 12 and ever since then I’ve had a compulsion to picking my skin. It’s become an obsession. I’ll sit in front of the mirror for hours on end just picking and picking. I have scabs and scars...

Perpetual Loner and Don’t Know What To Do

I am 21 female and have not had any friends for 10 years. I am high achieving and am scoring really highly in my degree in Economics at LSE. It is not the work that is getting me down, it is companionship. When I was at school I cared but not as much about not having any friends because I was the highest performing so I saw it as necessary to my success. Now...

Sometimes I Get the Urge to Hurt Other People

Sometimes, normally when I’m with a small amount of people (1-5) my hands will start to sweat and tingle a little on the inside. They feel itchy but I can’t scratch the itch away. I will get a similar feeling in my abdomen. I start to feel that the only way to get the feeling to stop is to hurt someone but I know it’s wrong so I try to hold back. Sometimes it’s...

My Adult Son Now Says He Is Really a Girl

From the US: Due to hypopituitarism my son makes little to no hormones. When it was discovered he makes some female hormones, but no male hormones I was assured by the doctors that it didn’t mean he should have been female. He always seemed rather feminine in his behaviors even as a young child. He has always said he is asexual. My thoughts have been once he was on the proper testosterone therapy he...

My Husband Overreacts

My husband overreacts over the smallest of things. His reaction to any problem is to yell, say rude things to me, completely ignore me and sleep in a separate room. I try to talk to him about why he’s so upset but he never opens up. This continues for days and I am finding that it is taking a toll on my mental well being. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I can’t work,...

Drug Abuse & Severe Anxiety

I have a history of prescription drug abuse. I am intelligent and passed through high school smoking massive amounts of marijuana (AP math). I gave very little effort, didn’t do my homework, and passed with flying colors. I have been smoking weed every day for over 2 years and have used it to treat insomnia. I have recently cut back majorly on my marijuana use. For as long as I can remember I have...

Anxious and Afraid I Have Schizophrenia

I have always been a chronic worrier about every little thing. But everything started 3 years ago. I had a boyfriend of 4 years and he left me. After that I became extremely depressed. I would cry every morning and I would be constantly trying to get in touch with him. One night after that while out with friends I smoked some weed they said it would relax me. It did the opposite it...

Difficult to Trust Him

We haven’t been in a relationship for that long, around 2-3 months, however I felt like he has broken my trust. For example messaging other girls complimenting them on their appearance amongst other things. I’m just scared that if we do give our passwords to each other it would make our relationship toxic and he would betray me even more. I don’t know what the right thing to do is. Hearing from you would...

Possible Repressed Memory?

Hello. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule for me (hopefully). I would like to ask if what I experienced are possible signs of repressed memories because I asked two doctors, one is a general physician and he said what I experienced was vertigo and the other is a gynecologist and she said what happened was because I couldn’t handle my period pain (first day) I don’t agree personally with the...

I Suspect I Have ASD

From Scotland: I’m a 15 year old female who has suspected ASD since I was 11. I can’t get a diagnosis as my mum won’t take me and I can’t go alone but because I can’t tell people why I am the way I am I feel depressed and anxious. I want to help myself. My main problems are sensory overload, eye contact, social situations, expressions, routine change and sarcasm. I find it hard...
