Bullied as a Child

I had glasses, unruly hair, and a weird wardrobe when I was a child and was constantly made fun of because of it from age 7-12 yrs old. I never had any friends to defend me and the teachers didn’t care or notice. I was too embarrassed to tell my family because, in their eyes, being bullied was seen as being weak. My family and small group of friends at home would also use...

Should I Admit Myself?

I have bipolar disorder and think about ways to kill myself almost every day. I am able to go and socialize with people while at class, but feel very down when I am alone. I occasionally have been hearing whispering in my empty apartment, which use to only happen in a manic episode. I feel like I can do daily tasks, but am fearful of how much longer it’ll be until these suicidal thoughts...

Disgusted When Touching Others

I feel disgusted when I touch other people or when other people touch me. This all started at age 15 when I would feel “dirty” whenever I shook someone’s hand, I would immediately use hand sanitizer to clean my hand. At a later age this has now developed into a state where I feel like I need a hot shower if I even bump into anyone, it has made my social life non-existent. So...

Am I Depressed?

Hi, I’m 21 years old and a college student. I’m wondering if I’m depressed or not. From the age of 16 to 19 I was in a abusive, both verbal and physical relationship.

I’m Obsessed about My Ex-Boyfriend

From Sao Paulo: I have had a relationship with someone (for under 1 year), after 4 months I discovered he was a drug addict. Even though, I decided to keep the relationship and help him.

My Wife Connects with Men Online

My wife continues to connect with men online but says she does it to bring back passion into our relationship. My wife and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for 30 years (married for 20). Sex has never been very important to her and we are intimate a dozen or less times a year. We deeply care for each other and I have suppressed my own sexual needs to accommodate her...

Concerned about My Mother

Hi. My mum is 58 and has lived a very unhealthy life. She had my brother at 16 and my father used to beat her — they would fight almost every day but he didn’t hit her every time. I’ve witnessed him burn her clothes etc. Later in life, she spiraled into a bad gambling addiction and as long as I’ve known her, she has had severe anxiety. We’ve never been able to get...

Depression & Being Productive

I believe I have been depressed for years and during high school, it never really affected my schoolwork other than major procrastination issues but I was always able to get good grades without working hard. Now that I’m in college, hard work is necessary to do well, and I can’t make myself do it. Just the idea of starting to do work is dreadful for me, but for the most part I’m able to...

Concerned about My 4 1/2 Year Old

Last August, shortly after turning 4, we had an issue with our daughter drinking her own urine. Her bedroom is in the attic and we have a gate on her door to stop her falling down the stairs at night, so she had a potty which has since been replaced with a camping toilet so she can use the bathroom. Since the last incident there has been a time where she had an accident...

Anxiety and Chronic Migraine

From Australia: I am getting chronic migraines due mostly to anxieties over my crappy parenting ability. I concisely know I am a good parent, but have such severe anxiety over failing them that i am making myself ill. If I can look at my parenting and see that it is good, is therapy going to help? A: Are you sure the headaches are from anxiety? It may be that you are anxious and you...
