He understands and told me that “mom talks every night and...

The agreement was we’d live there 3-5 years and if we didn’t like it we’d leave. Without jobs we started our new adventure. I ended up falling in love with the city and landing a job that I felt proud...

I Think I’m Delusional

I don’t know where to start. About a week ago I had a realization that I have been straying from reality for a long time.

Sister Uses Me as a Therapist and It’s Making Me Need One

My sister-44 and mother-72 live together. Both are disabled. My mother is bi-polar/borderline personality. My sister has a chronic pain condition and, though not diagnosed with a specific mental illness, has NO self-esteem, is OCD and chronically depressed.

Personality Issues?

From South Africa: My BF always tells me a have a very unique personality. On the one hand I know there is something wrong, because it’s just not normal, but on the other it seems right to me, because that’s how I feel and express myself. Many people have asked me: “do you even have a heart?” because it doesn’t look like it to them. I personally don’t care a bit about other people,...
