Overeating

I don’t know why, but I literally feel like I have to be eating all the time. My body will be extremely full, but my mind is telling me that I am still hungry. I do realize how weird this sounds. When I told my doc, she said this was just an excuse for me to eat what I want. I completely disagree. I often find myself trying to fight the urge to eat,...

I am now in 12th grade, and I still do not get...

Hi, Recently I’ve been dealing with intrusive thoughts and anxiety, but this is another matter. However, one thing giving tremendous guilt is that I’ve recently remembered some thoughts I had during puberty. During this time when I was probably around 13 or 14, I was very horny all of the time.

Boyfriend Doesn’t Believe in Me

When my boyfriend and I started dating, things were wonderful. He accepted me for “me”, was non-judgmental, etc. One day he asked about my past. He had been married for most of his adult life, whereas I have never been married. I proceeded to tell him that I went to clubs from time to time when I was younger. He asked about my sexual past. I was honest and answered truthfully. He then began...

I Have No Idea How to Start Thinking about My Future

I am 17, currently living in Australia. All my life I have never had any passion for anything. I do have many fleeting interests, but when I try to pursue them I tend to lose interest very quickly. I don’t have much experience with real-world issues either; I’ve never had a job, can’t drive, and never done any extracurricular activities or even had any real hobbies. Up to this point, my life has been...
