My Anxiety Is Ruining My Relationship

I am a 28 year old female in a relationship with a divorcee (with three children age 7-10). I have been having increasingly problematic anxiety attacks for the last 8 weeks.

Hate My Mom Who Won’t Back Off

My mother is obsessed with making up for being a “bad” mother. She paid very little attention to us as children. We essentially raised ourselves. Now she smothers us, calling several times a day, coming to visit 3-4 time per year (she lives in another state), and staying 10 days at a time. All of our interactions involve her trying to teach us the basics, as if we are still 5 year-olds, and demanding...

Grades Are Going Down Because of Problem I Have

For a while now I’ve had this problem where if something doesn’t feel exactly right I have to fix it until it does feel right and it’s hard to focus on anything else if I leave it.

If something takes...

My Family Doesn’t Respect My Beliefs

From a 16 year old in Turkey: Over the past year, I was brave enough to openly admit that I only had been following the religion of my society because my family is strictly religious and simply it is more convenient to smile and nod. This admittance, to my surprise, turned into a crisis. I was almost kicked out of my conservative school, some teacher would talk about “a stupid girl who was affected...

I Think I Remember Something, Can Our Minds Make Things Up?

I have this feeling something happened to me, like a memory when I was younger like 8 or 9 maybe even 10. However the incident is quite embarrassing and I don’t wish to disclose it. Yet it’s an event that I can see in my mind and my memory and re-play it out in my mind like any normal memory. However as I’ve gotten older I don’t Ii can still re-play it out in...

From a 15 year old in the : I don’t know where to start or what to say, but I know I am depressed.

Alcohol, Separation, Always Seemingly Play Second Fiddle

He is mostly wonderful and highly functioning, except he would get into moods and lose his job or other. Now I am trying to discuss when we...
