Concerned about Antisocial Personality Disorder

From the : I am 50 years old and have battled all sorts of issues in my life…but one that really stands out is that I lie all of the time, and I’ve progressively gotten worse.

Have Periods of Feeling Really Low, Anger Issues, Very Irritable, Rely on Alcohol to Control These Episodes

Hi, for about 3 years now I have been feeling low on and off, sometimes I’m fine, then sometimes I feel really irritable/angry/low. I just flip, out of know where sometimes. I depend on alcohol when this happens as I feel it relaxes me, I know this isn’t the right way of dealing with things, but it definitely helps. I shut off friends during these episodes. I have been to see a counselor recently,...

Mentally Ill Brother?

I am very worried about my older brother. In the past 6 months he has started behaving very strangely. He has forged my name and my parents’ names on rental documents and doesn’t see anything wrong with it. Additionally, he is exhibiting very paranoid behavior, he gave away his cats, whom he loved for more than 5 years, and his reasoning is that my Dad is going to send him to jail! According to...

Perpetual Loner and Don’t Know What To Do

I am 21 female and have not had any friends for 10 years. I am high achieving and am scoring really highly in my degree in Economics at LSE. It is not the work that is getting me down, it is companionship. When I was at school I cared but not as much about not having any friends because I was the highest performing so I saw it as necessary to my success. Now...

Drug Abuse & Severe Anxiety

I have a history of prescription drug abuse. I am intelligent and passed through high school smoking massive amounts of marijuana (AP math). I gave very little effort, didn’t do my homework, and passed with flying colors. I have been smoking weed every day for over 2 years and have used it to treat insomnia. I have recently cut back majorly on my marijuana use. For as long as I can remember I have...

I Feel Numb and Have No Idea What I Am Doing with My Life

I’m 15 and am haunted by the question if I am wasting my life. I often question what the hell I am doing, but then I feel like physically hurting myself because I strongly wish I could disappear. My father is an alcoholic and has always been for what I can remember. My mother is a lying, irresponsible woman who abandoned her three children for other men and would come crawling back to my...

I’m Obsessed about My Ex-Boyfriend

From Sao Paulo: I have had a relationship with someone (for under 1 year), after 4 months I discovered he was a drug addict. Even though, I decided to keep the relationship and help him. For a while I felt like I was getting results, but after couple months I realized he was still doing drugs, and each day more and more. I didn’t want to leave him, cause I felt like I loved...

My 10-Year-Old Niece Seems On Edge

My sister is a single mother in her thirties. She is very immature, selfish and crippled by insecurities. She drinks herself asleep most nights. Daily she consumes at least 2 pints of beer. This is not my concern. What bothers me is she puts my niece in positions I feel a good mother wouldn’t. As I mentioned my sister drinks so most of the time before she passes out, she is obnoxious, loudly singing...

If I Could Bottle My ‘Nervous Energy’ I’d Be Rich

From the : Ever since I can remember, I have had people telling me to sit down and stop fidgeting. I had thought if I could bottle my “nervous energy,” I’d be rich!! Both my parents are dead and I dropped everything to care for them and was the only one with them in passing. They both drank a lot, always. Dad died from it and actually it took my mom too, but pancreatic...

How Do You Know when You Have Recovered?

From the : Early this year in April I decided to try Molly for the first time. The high was amazing but it then led to a horrible comedown filled with anxiety and depression. I recovered from this but then 1 month later randomly got anxiety and depression again. In the summer, I tried SSRIs which made me worse (probably since MDMA acts on similar receptors) so I stopped them completely and have been...

I Am Worried about My Brother

My brother is 15 and a freshman in high school. When he was young he was always polite and kind to others. He sometimes through tantrums, but they were just you run of the mill boy tantrums. Recently he has become awful to be around. He is rude to me, my parents, my sister, his girlfriend, and his friends. My family has spoken with him asking if anything is wrong and his only response...
