Roommate Situation – Is Something Wrong with Me?

I’ve been having some emotional issues with my current roommates and I’m starting to think it’s myself and not them that’s the cause of it. When it comes to them, I don’t really consider their feelings or I just blow off the fact that they may actually care about me. When asking other people about the situations, they say that I’ve been acting in the right, although some others say that it’s just me...

Weird Sleeping Problems

Most days, I can’t sleep. I’m not talking about staying up too late on the internet or whatever, I can lay in bed for three hours (that’s how much time I usually give it) and I still cannot sleep. I often go to school without having had any sleep at all (2 of the 5 days at least), and that’s really messing with my grades. I’m diagnosed with Dysthymic Disorder, so it would make...

I Can’t Accept Myself

Well I’m gay and I stopped denying it recently. I always known that there’s something different with me, though. I hate it and I’m so afraid because everybody around me says awful things about gays. I am unhappy and I have strong feeling that I will stay that way and in 20 years I see myself miserable and alone. Worse thing is that I hate the way my character is. I put myself down...

My Sister has Destructive Behavior and My Family Struggles with Why

My 15-year-old sister is having a really rough time in life, both in school and at home. In school she rarely goes, she gets low grades, she makes friends with the wrong kinds of people yet is excessively dedicated to texting, speaking with, and hanging out with them but cries when relationships and friendships inevitably end badly. At home it’s not much better. She refuses to do any chores, is often tired and lethargic,...

Am I at a High Risk for PTSD?

From the : When I was in middle school, my acquaintances¬†would repeatedly slap me in the butt at the lunch table and that made me feel very uncomfortable. That happened regularly.

Boarding School Issues

I chose to leave home and study abroad at boarding school when I was eight. I have been living away from family for the past 16 years. I regret this decision and blamed myself. Over the past 16 years, I have not been very happy and my personality changed but have only realized this over the past few years. Before I went to study abroad, I was happy but ever since, I am not....

Too Much on My Plate?

Hi! I am currently a junior in high school. I am one of the top students in my class, but this year I have been doubting myself. When I am alone, another side of me comes out. It kind of scares me. This part of me is sad and tired. When I am with my family and friends, I am an outgoing, happy, and positive girl. However, if I am alone I become certain...

How Do I Fix My Life?

I’m 17 and I can’t talk to girls, I don’t like talking to people except a select few that are my friends and I guess it’s because of me being fat and disliked by pretty much everyone in my middle school (never bullied, was too strong for that sh*t), my dad is a full time alcoholic that barely works ever, constantly fights with my mom and never stops talking about how my mom ruined...

Depressed Friend

Here’s the thing. A very good friend of mine (20) has started acting very unusual, she’s skipping classes at college, doesn’t smile anymore and doesn’t have the will to talk to anyone about her problem. Anytime we (my friends and I) ask her about what’s going on, she doesn’t want to share it with us. Once we mentioned a psychologist and her response was something like this: “I don’t think I could ever share...

Something Is Wrong

From Australia: I’m 15 and I’m too scared to go to a doctor just in case its hormones or I’m just being a drama queen but something’s different. I am usually an extremely outgoing person that’s always grinning like an idiot and loving to be around people but for the past few weeks its different. I’ve been snappish, irritant and the only thing I want to do is go home and sit in a...
