My Boyfriend Is Unmotivated and Lazy

From Quebec: I’m 19 and I have been dating my current boyfriend for a little under 3 years now. Compared to past experience with men, he is amazing. He is kind, generous, caring, concerned, and so much more. Only one problem; he is extremely unmotivated and quite lazy. I love him and I do NOT want to end the relationship. I am willing to work at this as hard as possible to make it...

I Can’t Speak Properly

People don’t understand me and it has been happening for a while now, maybe for the past few years. I believe it has gotten worse over time. Every time I try to speak and have a conversation with someone my words just end up getting mixed up. Sometimes I can’t even find the right words to say. My mind just goes blank or I can’t get the word off the tip of my tongue. I...

Should I Seek Therapy Again?

From the : I was sexually assaulted from the time I was 11 to the time I ran away from home at 17. I was kicked out of my family’s home, and sent to a place where I was verbally abused.

I’m Scared I’m Having Heart Attacks

From the : I have had anxiety almost all of my life but lately it has gotten out of hand.

Inability to Have Sex

Since I can remember, I’ve always thought of myself as unattractive. At school I was considered undesirable and teased indirectly about my looks. In my later teens men started taking an interest and I became sexually active and happy, eventually entering my first relationship which lasted 4 years. This relationship ended about a year ago and though I am over it, my ex dragged out the ending and it became quite bitter with another...

Depression, Anxiety and Fear of Dementia Due to Stress

I am 80 years old, trying to finish preparing to move to Florida, generally good health (take blood pressure and small dosage cholesterol and follow diabetic diet but blood sugar under control without meds). The challenge of sorting, gathering, packing, constant decisions of moving 900 miles to new residence (a positive, welcome move, but the move itself is awful) apparently made my bp go up drastically about 10 days ago. Received a second bp...

How Can I Make Sure I Do Not Accidentally Say the Wrong Name?

In my current relationship, there are a lot of issues stemming from my past marriage, issues that cause my wife insecure feelings and feelings of being ‘the second one’. About a year ago I referred to our cat by the wrong name — calling it the name of my ex wife’s cat. This hurt my wife, because to her it felt like the cat, and she herself, was interchangeable. I heard that it hurt...

I’m Bipolar and Guilt Tripping Myself

It’s pretty easily explained, really: I’m bipolar (II) and as we probably all know, excessive guilt is a symptom of that. Still, I’m pretty sure, that guilty feelings are not supposed to be this strong. What I mean with that is, that my mind seems to randomly decide to start guilt-tripping me (mostly in the evening/at night). There’s no real trigger, nothing that causes it, as far as I know/realize. And it’s not simple...

I Am Having Opposing Feelings…

From the : I am a junior in high school, and I have a boyfriend. My grades are above average, and I laugh with a couple of friends at school. However, I am not happy, at the least only half of me is happy at a time. I feel as though I am having two different feelings. One is of an extrovert, and the other is of an introvert. I have strong feelings of...
