Violent Thoughts?

I know I should seek help, and I’m currently seeing a therapist for my anxiety, but I tend to get violent thoughts. Like if I have a sharp object in my hand, I think of ways to kill people. I don’t want to nor think I would enjoy it at all, but I do think of it. I’m aware this isn’t normal and I was wondering if I really should seek help. I don’t...

Confidentiality with a Therapist

Hi. I’ve been thinking about going to my school counselor after a friend recommended I go.

I Don’t Know What’s Wrong with Me

I don’t know what it is or how to fix it or if it’s even that big of an issue but I’ve decided to ask here and see if it’s something I should tell people about.

I Feel Like I Have DID

From a teen in the : Sometimes I feel like the world isn’t real or I’m not real, kinda like a dream. Family says I stare at nothing a lot, and I talk to myself from time to time, even arguments.
