What’s the Disorder that I Have?

I just discovered recently from my teachers and supervisors that I have been walking and sleeping in the corridors of the school. They have that recorded in their security cameras and I have no memory at all about even leaving my classroom! I’m afraid it could be split personality disorder. A. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a “split personality #8221; That expression may mean that an individual is engaging...

Do I Follow My Dreams or Give Up?

From Pakistan: I am born of a middle class family. I wanted to get admitted in a famous arts college in my city. I spent a whole year preparing for the test.

Scared to Get Help

I think I have depression. I’ve done all the online tests and although they say not to use them as a diagnostic tool, all of them say I have moderate to severe depression. I see absolutely no point in life, I honestly couldn’t care less if I died tomorrow. My life is worth nothing and I find it unfair that I have to live in it. I feel empty and hollowed out inside but...

The only times I don’t feel like that is when...

Don’t Know What to Do

I am struggling with daily life in a way that I am sure isn’t healthy. I don’t have any friends and the ones I do have, I don’t even like. They do drugs and skip school and just make terrible life decisions that I want no part of. But they are the only friends I have. I’m not very close to the little family that I have. My relationship with my dad is not...

The feeling of sadness will...
