I Am Having Opposing Feelings…

From the : I am a junior in high school, and I have a boyfriend. My grades are above average, and I laugh with a couple of friends at school. However, I am not happy, at the least only half of me is happy at a time. I feel as though I am having two different feelings. One is of an extrovert, and the other is of an introvert. I have strong feelings of...

I Feel Very Incompetent

Hello. All my life I feel as if I’ve always been behind in some regard. In school, I struggled immensely with keeping up my grades and staying on top of school work. In high school and middle school, I had more of an excuse because I was working through very bad anxiety, depression and OCD. However in elementary school I couldn’t have been happier. I come from a very loving family who would do...

Depression & Being Productive

I believe I have been depressed for years and during high school, it never really affected my schoolwork other than major procrastination issues but I was always able to get good grades without working hard. Now that I’m in college, hard work is necessary to do well, and I can’t make myself do it. Just the idea of starting to do work is dreadful for me, but for the most part I’m able to...

Life Going Down Hill

My life has been going down hill recently. I have never been an abusive person, but suddenly I punched two kids in my class (they were teasing me but that is no excuse). Academically I’m not doing so great anymore. I used to get straight A’s, now I get D’s and C’s. One of my best friends completely turned on me and is now siding with the bullies. I feel as if my friends...

Depression Meds?

I am thinking about getting put on depression medication, but I’m not sure who to go to for that or to discuss it. I am a minor so I would probably have to get my mom’s permission, but I feel like she would think I’m just seeking attention or she wouldn’t understand. I have been holding in wanting meds for the part 2 years and I’ve come to no conclusion. What is the process...

Lack of Socialization?

I feel like there’s something wrong with me but I don’t know what it is or how to possibly resolve this. I am 16 and have been homeschooled my whole life. I have never had a friend or even have spoken to someone my own age. I may have had opportunities, but I wasn’t aware. I feel so uncomfortable and awkward whenever I am around someone my own age. I even feel that way...

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...

I Have Social Anxiety

From Croatia: I’m struggling with slight social anxiety. I’ve always been shy and I felt better alone than around other people. I thought it was because I’m an introvert, but my problems don’t end there. I don’t like talking on the phone, and I always have to mentally prepare myself before making a call. Or before going to the store I have to rehearese what I’m going to say. I always get sick and...

I Don’t Need Much to Become Angry
