It’s Been so Long since I Slept Peacefully.

From 17-year-old in Malaysia: First of all, my family. I did not grow up with my family since I was 2 months old. I only go back home on weekends. On weekdays, it’s just my grandma and I. I think my mum dislikes me. She scolds me badly. My brother gets everything he wants. Recently they presented him a house and got him ps4. He even owns an iPhone. My mum said she doesn’t...

Young Friend Has Recurring Thoughts of Suicide

A friend of mine is Depressed, has Social Anxiety, Self Harms and recently said she’s going to starve herself. She’s talked about Suicide more and more lately and I’ve been able to talk her out of it each time so far, but it’s getting more difficult and I’m scared that one day she’ll take her life. I don’t know what to do. I’ve talked to her about talking to someone, but she doesn’t think...

Different Stuff

From the : I’m 15 and it’s my first time asking here so do please tell me if I need to fix this. I would’ve liked it private though. So anyway, I’m not sure if I could say I was molested as a child. My sister would rarely touch me, but she would make me touch her down there and do stuff a lot more. It stopped when she started puberty so when she...

Son Has OCD and Depression

My 40-year-old son suffers from severe OCD and depression. It has become worse in the past 3 years. He has been in a relationship during that time but his partner is at the end of her rope and wants him out. He is on disability so he is home all the time and goes nowhere. He wants to move near us (not with us) but I don’t see how that will help. I was...

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...

Suicidal Ideations and Fear of Involuntary Commitment

Although I have a good boyfriend, family, and close friends, I feel completely alone. None of them know the “real” me, and lately I’ve thought about talking to a professional. I have a psychiatrist who gives me meds that helps me project this image of “normal” and “happy,” but I am still mentally ill and I have a dark side that nobody knows about. My emotions are limited and extreme (anxiety, depression, rage, empathy...

Difficulty Finding the Right Treatment for Suicidal Thoughts

In April I was hospitalized for suicidal ideation, it was a very stressful time, and I found the experience more stigmatizing than helpful. I still have nightmares where I wake up sweating thinking I am back in the locked ward. I was not a good patient and was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (I discussed this with my therapist, both past and present and they do not agree with this as a diagnosis.) My...

Lately I’ve Been Feeling More Depressed

The majority of my life I’ve been bullied and I held it in, my parents would tell me that I wouldn’t amount to anything and I’ll be lucky to get through college. Usually i just hold it in and when Im alone i blow up in emotions so no one sees me. In my culture it is considered nearly a sin to discuss depression. Sometimes i get suicidal but it hasn’t happened in a...

He refuses to go to rehab or marriage...

I used to be very active no I just sit in a chair for 7 hours a day then lay in bed for the rest of the day. I don’t talk to any one. I don’t do anything. I literally feel worthless anymore. All of my in-laws have picked my husband’s ex over me, he doesn’t stand...

I Think that I’m Depressed, Parents Won’t Help Me

I know the way that I’m acting and thinking is not normal. I feel so lonely and detached from everyone around me. I just kind of float through school and I really have no friends there — no one I can connect with anyway. All I want to do is lay down and give up. I’ve thought about suicide multiple times. I really hope and pray that I get into a car accident so...
