My husband wants me to weigh 115 lbs at 5’8″ and I keep trying to do it because i am afraid not to. This weight issue has existed since we were married in 1973. We have had an abnormal relationship through the births of 5 children. I left him numerous times during my middle thirties when my daughters were teens. I wanted them to know that this was abnormal behavior and explained everything to...

I Have an Eating Disorder But I Can’t Get Treatment & Want to Recover

Okay so I’m 14 years old and I’ve had an eating disorder since November of 2012. It started out as just forcing myself throwing up after eating but I didn’t binge. then I started starving myself. I would only eat like 600-800 calories a day and I would still make myself throw up. I was also feeling really overwhelmed and suicidal and I was self-harming. But six months ago I stopped all of it...

My Mom Was Sick and Now I Am and She Doesn’t Care

My mother went through a terrible depression in her early 40’s. I was there for her, supported her, the whole nine yards. She quit driving, I drove her around, and took her shopping. I have been diagnosed with Epilepsy, Severe Anxiety, and Depression. She’s almost insulted that she has to drive me around and do things for me. She didn’t even want to go to my disability hearing! I’m hurt, upset. She tells me:...

Stretch Marks are Ruining My Life

I am only 20 and I’ve had stretch marks since I hit puberty. I was chubby when I was younger and I didn’t eat right. I think that’s the reason why I got stretch marks all over my body. Literally everywhere. On my arms, my breasts, my hips my thighs and knees and behind my calves. Some people think it’s over reacting, but I developed many issues because of my stretch marks. I love...

Is There Something Wrong with Me?

For the past two years I’ve been feeling isolated, unmotivated and as if I will never amount to anything. I have developed the bad habit of thinking of creative ways to commit suicide or how to make other people feel guilty as a result of me being miserable. I find myself avoiding all kinds of social interactions, then later wishing I had more friends. Often times school causes me enough stress to have regular...

Losing Touch with Reality

I’ve always been paranoid. I’d cry at least once a week from the ages of 4 to 9. I’d cry at night worrying about my parents dying or us being robbed and murdered or one of my parents dying in a car crash. There was no reason for this, yet I was terrified. My mom would read me bible passages to try and help but it rarely did. Now, it’s slightly different, I suffered...

Persistent Destructive Behaviors

To whom it may concern, I find my life increasingly consumed by a number of destructive behaviors. For example, binge drinking, binge eating, self harm and continually lying and stealing from close family for no apparent reason. I don’t mean to do these things, it’s just like something takes over me and these happen. As a result my relationships have suffered and I have an increasingly poor image of myself. A. Though not apparent...

Emotional Abuse by Father

I’m 21 and I didn’t have an easy life. My dad has always demanded so much of me that it ended up draining me and sending down a spiral of depression, OCD, eating disorders and suicidal thoughts. My dad’s constant pressure has never allowed me to grow as a person and know what I want for myself in life or what I believe in. For example, ever since I was 5 my dad was...

Weird Feelings for a Long Time

Hi, I usually feel a little paranoid about these forums, but I just want an opinion. I don’t even know where to start. I’ve dealt with self esteem issues for a long time. In high school I was known as the weird girl who ran around and was hyper all the time and got in trouble (I went to school overseas) I’ve had difficulty sleeping for the past 4 years, I’ve lost some weight...
