Extreme Emotional Detachment

I’m an extremely introverted person, and I have been for a very long time. It was different when I was younger, and I don’t know when or why that changed. I was as loud and obnoxious as any other child. I spoke my mind and made friends relatively easily. Now, at the age of 23, I find that I’m unable to express extreme emotions, and it’s hindered my ability to form meaningful relationships –...

Is This Clinical Depression?

I have always believed that every person is un-harmfully eccentric in their own way but I think lately, I have been more than that. Feels unhealthy. I am very lonely and still pushing people away & myself into a cocoon. I am unable to concentrate in work or anything constructive. I procrastinate everything possible and turn to movies/ tv shows to escape from feeling all this. I am oversleeping and tired all day long...

Love or Familiarity?

I apologize if this query seems a little childish, or unimportant, but it’s something that is getting me down beyond belief and I felt it was worth asking to see if I can get a little advice.

Anxious Over the Uncontrollable

In the past, I was always an ambitious individual that worked hard towards school and managed to get good grades. Even though I wasn’t particularly interested in a subject, I still managed to put all of my effort in to receive a great mark. However, now that I have been launched into the “real world” I am finding it harder to stay motivated and put all of my effort into work that I don’t...

Just Shy or Something More?

I am a 28 year-old woman who works as a produce clerk at a grocery store. I’ve always been called “shy”, but lately it’s gotten to the point where I am so uncomfortable speaking to my co-workers about anything other than immediate work-related tasks, that I will work myself to death, just so I look too busy to talk to and no one will attempt to approach me. I can manage a nice smile...
