Is Relationship Cheating Wrong?

From the : I’m a 12th grader in high school, and I’m having a relationship issue. I suffer from depression, with some symptoms of psychosis present. Furthermore, while I do not have an official diagnosis, it is generally believed by family and my school that I have aspergers. My teachers and counselor┬áhave been pressuring my parents for some time to seek a doctor, we don’t have the funds. Since ninth grade, I’ve been dating...

Tired of Being Insulted

Hi. I wanted to ask a question about how to deal with a situation that seems to be ongoing or at least it seems like it is (possible I might be paranoid too). I recently have been hearing people around me insult my appearance, specifically my body image. I am not unhealthy, but I am not extremely fit either. Many times it seems people have been calling me ugly behind my back, or...

Friend Plans How To Kill People

My friend (16 male, no family issues, no relationship, Newton Utah) has confided in me about “trances” or “blurry mind things” that he gets. On a hunting trip with his brother, father, and grandfather, his mind went slightly blurry, his shotgun drifted towards his brother and he thought “I can get all three of them and no one will #8221; It really freaked him out. He loves his family very much. It is completely...

Dealing with My Schizophrenic Brother

I don’t know how to deal with my schizophrenic older brother anymore. I’m now the only person in the family who will have anything to do with him. Our parents have both died. Every so often he decides he’s been cured and doesn’t need his antipsychotic medication anymore. This is always against medical advice, but they can’t force him. He then deteriorates to the point where the police are involved due to his aggressive...

A Friend Is Mentally Ill

I have a friend, she is a girl, she is not talking with me properly from 1 month, but she says that I normally love you as a brother like before, but she’s not even speaking or responding to the message I kept. She has maniac depression disorder and paranoid disorder. She said this only to me and another friend, she don’t want to tell this to her parents also. She is always saying...

Bipolar?

Hi. I am a 38-year-old female who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2008. Since the age of 13, I have found myself depressed more often than not, with episodes of hypomania few and far between and intermittent periods of normalcy. I sometimes have auditory and visual hallucinations, with the auditory ones occurring more frequently than the visual ones. I can usually identify them as being unreal — they sound like a radio that...

My Mother Is Going Crazy

I’m not talking about hearing voices in the head because thankfully she’s not that crazy, but recently she has some major belief issues. She recently got sucked into this whole “4 dimensions,” she truly and legitimately believes that her “soul wavelength” is equal to that of a god, and that god lives in the 4D or something. I of course am not really believing in that sort of ridiculous comment, so I try to...

Why Am I Having Crazy Dreams?

I have really bad crazy dreams. Usually about death and graveyards. I dreamed once I was with a group digging up graves because we had to preserve them better and put them back. My papaw’s grave is always in these dreams. Why am I having them and what do they mean? … I have had major trauma and I suffer from depression, anxiety and OCD. I was just diagnosed with paranoid delusions. Thanks. A....

Pregnancy Paranoia

Hello, I recently entered the second trimester with my first child. Lately I’ve been experiencing strange occurrences — hearing voices, hearing doors open, and the very intense feeling I’m being watched. They all sound very real and happen day or evening, and late into the night. My pregnancy has been quite normal. I am of good health and have never had an issue with mental problems, and neither does my family. It has gotten...

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...

Worried about Psychotic Friend

Hello there. So, I’ve recently made the acquaintance of a kid in my grade — a kid that most people avoid, because he is strange in an uncomfortable way. We really hit it off (I find that I end up relating to a lot of the things he says, or at least find them interesting), and while I only consider him a casual friend, he claims he is in love with me, and has...

She’s Invading My Privacy

A girl that I’ve never met or seen got obsessed with me via Twitter and I ended up working with her which turned out to be a disaster. She planned the whole thing. That was two and half years ago, I left six months later and since she’s been stalking/monitoring me. I’m a very private person and I honestly hate it, it gets to the very core of me. It isn’t the first time...
