A Friend Is Mentally Ill

I have a friend, she is a girl, she is not talking with me properly from 1 month, but she says that I normally love you as a brother like before, but she’s not even speaking or responding to the message I kept. She has maniac depression disorder and paranoid disorder. She said this only to me and another friend, she don’t want to tell this to her parents also. She is always saying...

Constant Anger

I am constantly getting angry and it is starting to affect the relationship I am in. I get angry over lots of tiny things such as saying one thing wrong or something not working, all little things make me hit myself, hit things around me, shout, pull my hair out. I have extremely bad self confidence, constantly putting myself down, having no confidence when it comes to school work and how I look. I...

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...

Why Do I Fantasize about Killing People?

I sometimes think about killing people. Sometimes I have urges. Some of these fantasies are pretty detailed. This has been only been happening of late, when I’m frustrated or depressed. Before, I would want to hurt myself, now it’s mostly directed towards other people. It’s no one in particular, just random people. I just feel the need to cause violence, to destroy. Is this normal? Also, I don’t really have anyone I’m comfortable with...

Can’t Get Over My Mistake and Feeling Depressed

I am a 15-year-old guy who considered himself heterosexual. About 8 months ago I went on a video chat website that randomly pairs you with a stranger to chat with over the camera. I went on this website, skipped through a few people, found an older man who had his area exposed, and I masturbated with him. I did not show my face, I covered my privates while I did it, and the man...

I Realized I’m Not Being Myself

2 years ago I developed social anxiety out of the blue, and it was truly something I had never experienced. I had all of the symptoms of social phobia during the summer after 9th grade, and after weeks of experiencing it, I became depressed and really angry. When school started, I developed some ways to help deal with it, such as convincing myself that nothing was wrong with my face, and I reduced my...

I Myself Don’t Even Know

I really just wanted some perspective. This all started about 3 months ago majorly I guess. But the most recent event was last week. I woke up last Wednesday and just didn’t want to go to school, talk to anyone, see anyone, I just hated everyone and everything around me. I haven’t gone to school for 10 days nor have I talked to any of my friends. I had eating problems before but now...

Confused, Overthinking and Rather Afraid

I honestly have doubts when it comes to my mental sanity. I will start by saying that I face social anxiety and that I isolated myself from the world, avoiding most interactions with others and rarely leaving home. I cannot make friends as I find myself unable to open up to people, family included. I have a phobia of loud noise (yelling, firecrackers even balloons). I saw a therapist but I have again discovered...
