I Think I Have Depression

Ok so I’ve talked to my parents a few times about how I think I might have depression. I’ve taken the tests on here every other day and results are almost always the same, minor to severe depression. So when I talked to my parents they said it was just because my hormones are all over the place, but would my hormones give me suicidal thoughts or wanting to cut. I don’t cut or...

I Feel like I’m Going Insane

Hello, So I’m 15 and under medication for (suicidal)depression (I take clomipramine). I have dealt with self harm and such issues and my depression is under control. Recently though, I started noticing that everything wasn’t going ok. I’ll explain: I feel tired all day but I get overwhelmed by anger and hate. I fantasize about hurting and even killing people, though i would never do this in real life. I feel like those things...

Childhood Relevance & Relationship Issues

I have a history of repeated physical abuse by my father in childhood, stimulated by minor factors like a slightly lower grade or poor handwriting. I am also unfortunate to have witnessed my father being violent to my mother and sister. All of which are imprinted in my mind and still make me cry on recollection, both my parents died of cancer in the past two years. I have always had difficulty in concentrating...

Gender Crisis

Hi, when I was about 15-16 I had thoughts of being assigned the wrong gender at birth, I kept it secret from my parents, but they kept laughing at me and making fun of me for being slightly feminine (wanting to grow my hair, having long nails). My dad always called me names and teased me about it. I kept it inside and only told one person, she was my closest friend that I...

I Think I Am Bipolar, Do I Need Therapy?

My friend committed suicide two years ago. Four months later my grandpa died. For some reason the awful feeling never went away. Every day I have the feeling of grief as if it happened yesterday. It’s not that I’m still mourning, but it has affected me physically and emotionally. I have no appetite, I hardly sleep, I never want to go out, and I am exhausted all the time. My parents think I’m always...

Both Self-Hating & Narcissistic?

Hello there. This is my first time ever actually posting on a forum like this, so I’m sorry if I don’t know how to properly explain myself. I have had problems with self harm before, just once, back in 2012. My mom found out and so did my younger brother and out of shame I stopped, but I never sought out professional help. I got better by just focusing all my negative energy on...

Anxiety & Inability to Commit in Work, School, Relationships

I’m 23 and up until about 4 years ago, I was outgoing, had a big social circle, and a part time job I had maintained for a couple years. Since then, I’ve somehow become very depressed, self-hating, antisocial and have terrible anxiety whenever I’m obligated to a work or social situation, sometimes even when it’s just a family get together. It gets so bad that I’ve quit about 8 jobs in the past 4...

And I’m currently studying abroad, I have only few friends here and they only come to me when they need me.

Friend Is Suicidal, Has Bi-Polar Mania & Lives in Another State

My best friend just contacted me at first to tell me she was dying her hair. Then she told me she was getting a divorce from her husband and was starting the transition to become a man. Her family is verbally refuting everything and otherwise ignoring what she has told them. She claims to be diagnosed with bipolar mania. However, she diagnosed herself. She has a Mensa level IQ and just completed her Masters...

Help: History of Major Depression

I have been telling random pointless lies almost compulsively for as long as I can remember. I have found that I spend allot of time trying to reach goals which I believe will make me happy, but never do. I recently began a habit of cutting myself, collecting the blood with a absorbent material and staring at it until I enter a state of uncontrollable laughter. I have as far as I can remember...

Negative Feelings Towards Myself/Others and How to Seek Help

About a year and a half ago, I experienced (what I think was, but was never actually diagnosed) a period of depression lasting almost six months. Almost every day, I would drag myself out of bed, go to school, and then come home and go back to sleep. While at school, I found little to no enjoyment in the company of my friends and I could barely stand to sit through class and take...
