Delusional? Different People Inside Me?

I’m not sure quite exactly what is wrong with me but I will try my best to explain. I feel different sometimes. Like a new person. Ussually, I am my happy self.

Derealization?

I’m a 15 year-old male, and I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety for years. School is generally hard for me because of the social aspect and all of the stress involved, but recently nothing really seems really. It seems as if I’m in some surreal state of mind and there’s nothing I can do about it. I’ve never taken any anti-depressant or anxiety medications, and I’ve never done any form of drugs. I’ve lost...

Abortion Changed Our Lives… What Now?

Back in April my live-in girlfriend of over 2 years and I went through with an abortion. Consequently, we drifted apart until the beginning of September, when she said she couldn’t do it anymore. The whole summer we were pretty much doing our own thing, trying haphazardly to cope with what happened.  I sank into a deep depression without even realizing it.

I Like Causing Others Emotional Pain

From a 13 year old girl in the Netherlands: As you can read from the title, I like causing others emotional pain. Especially boys.

Should I Get a Second Opinion?

From England: Hi, I have been struggling with episodes of severe anxiety, depression and self harm for many years. These episodes will suddenly lift and I will feel great but it cycles back very quickly. I saw a psychiatrist after lots of doctors told me what they thought I had wrong with me and gave me more anti-depressants which all made me feel very unstable. The psychiatrist believes that my brain is unable to...

(It’s Complicated.) I am running out of antidepressants and I’m sort of paralyzed because I don’t know how I’m supposed to get a new prescription for them. I originally got prescribed paxil at my student health center, and since I graduated, they won’t keep sending me prescriptions. Can I go to urgent care? I work all week on a relatively rural mountain and I don’t have a car. I also kind of feel like...

Possible Depression?

I’m an Education graduate Cum Laude and currently working as a BPO agent. I recently decided to continue to Law primarily to achieve my dream of being a lawyer but mostly to cure my academic insecurity. I think my cousins and friends landed a better course and better job. I ended up working in call center since I hate teaching. I only took up teaching because my mom says so. So, lately I had...
