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...

Childhood Rape Is Preventing Intimacy

I’m in a semi serious relationship right now, but I haven’t even kissed him yet because I’m scared to. When I was raped I was forced to kiss him and I hated it.

Do I Have Dermatillomania?

I am a non-gender binary 15 year old. I’ve recently learned of dermatillomania and think I do have it. I was wondering if you could provide me with your opinion?

I would like to ask if what I experienced are possible signs of repressed memories because I asked two doctors, one is a general physician and he said what I experienced was vertigo and the other is a gynecologist and she said what happened was because I couldn’t handle my period pain (first day) I don’t agree personally with the...

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...
