My Girlfriend’s Teen-Aged Daughter Is Disrespectful

From the : My girlfriend and I have been seeing each other for the last eight months.

I have a soon to be eight-year-old son and she has a daughter that just turned 17. My son and my girlfriend have a great relationship. His mother is still very...

I’m Having a Particularly Bad Day

From the : I’m having a particularly bad day. For the last week I’ve felt great. When I woke up this morning I had raging anger. I’m also having motivational issues. I have a family, but I can barely take care of myself. My husband recently lost his job also. I’m trying to find a therapist to replace my retired one but need some coping techniques until a therapist is established. A: It sounds...

Did My Grandmother Molest Me?

From the : Hello. I was molested by a relative of our neighbor when I was 5, but I’m not sure if what my grandmother did also counts as molestation. She would joke around with me and touch me between my legs and I would always laugh because she convinced me that this was all in good fun. I was around the ages of 4 or 5. She never did this around my mother,...

Vivid Thoughts of Suicide

It started when I was seventeen, and stopped for quite sometime, just starting up again a few months ago. Only, now it’s more vivid. More terrifying. Yet, more… relaxing. I keep having extremely vivid daydreams/thoughts about killing myself. When I was a teenager, it was bleeding out. A razor across my wrists. Now, it’s a gun to the head. Barrel in mouth as the skull splits and cracks apart. Blood and gray matter spattered...

Controlling Parents

My boyfriend and I broke up in early November because my friends and family started saying that he was trying to keep me from them and started a rumor that he was a woman beater. My best friend heard this rumor and called my mother which in return she freaked out on my boyfriend. This rumor is not true, he has never laid a hand on me. Me and my boyfriend could not survive...

Have Periods of Feeling Really Low, Anger Issues, Very Irritable, Rely on Alcohol to Control These Episodes

Hi, for about 3 years now I have been feeling low on and off, sometimes I’m fine, then sometimes I feel really irritable/angry/low. I just flip, out of know where sometimes. I depend on alcohol when this happens as I feel it relaxes me, I know this isn’t the right way of dealing with things, but it definitely helps. I shut off friends during these episodes. I have been to see a counselor recently,...

The girl is at the school but in the year above. Can anyone help...

I Constantly Pick at My Skin

From Canada: I’m 20 and I pick the skin on my fingers all the time. It has been over a year since I have seen my fingers without cut marks all over them. I bit or rip off my skin. I’m always stressed and bite or claw at my hands to clam down but it only seems to make my stress worse in the end. It’s particularly bad when there is actually some obvious...

I Want People to Hurt Me

Sometimes, I want guys to hurt me physically or rape me. It doesn’t feel wrong (I don’t know why, but my emotions are basically turned off), but I know that’s not anywhere near normal. It’s nothing that sexually arouses me; I often feel a need for punishment even though I can’t think of anything I’ve done wrong. I’ve been raped almost a year ago. I tried looking this up, but either I’m doing something...

Should I Seek Therapy Again?

From the : I was sexually assaulted from the time I was 11 to the time I ran away from home at 17. I was kicked out of my family’s home, and sent to a place where I was verbally abused. (Told I was worthless, useless, and never would amount to anything, also accused of being a liar). After that I was sent back to my mom’s and sexually abused again. I tried many...
