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...

Having Weird/Delusional Thoughts & Questioning Reality

Lately I have been having some really weird and crazy thoughts and questioning reality. Like I think I’m living in “The Matrix” or the Truman Show. For instance today, at training I saw people laughing. I knew they were probably just laughing among themselves but for some reason I thought they were laughing at me. Saying “Omg he is so clueless, he doesn’t know this is all an act”… Then after training while driving...

Marijuana-Induced Anxiety Attack

Hello. I had what seemed to be an anxiety attack last night. At first I started to question reality and if I really existed or if everything was a figment of my imagination. I truly thought I was going crazy. Then I started fearing that I might lose control and harm myself or harm others which was the absolutely last thing I’d ever want to do. I eventually went to sleep and woke up...

I Can’t Stop Smoking Weed

From the : I can’t do this on my own, have no idea where to even go or what to do anymore. I’ve been smoking weed and cigs since 2009, I have been actively trying to quit for a year. I can’t go a day without smoking, its all I think about, it consumes my life now. It never used to be this way. I have an addictive personality it sends me into panic...

Does My Brother Have Paranoia or Schizophrenia?

Hi – I’m new here, but don’t where else to go. This is in regard to my sibling. He is 37 and lives with my mother in Florida.
