I've been friends with this girl for 5 yrs. The first 1 yr I had not a single complaint with the friendship. We spoke in some form (IM, Text, Phone, Email) seemingly 50 times a day, so much so that when I went away for a 4 day trip she said to me "What am I going to do when you're gone?"

Some of the people she knew her whole life were in very volatile friendships with her and I took her side always because I didn't see any of the behavior the others were mentioning.

Background on the friend. Has lived in the same city her whole life. She had a strange relationship with her now divorc Read More »
Some weird things have been going on in my life lately, and I was wondering if this website would help me out.

First of all, I am 12 years old, but I am turning 13 in less than a week. My mood is changing constantly, which I know can be explained by hormones, but I'm just not sure. I will get really angry over nothing, like if somebody emails me 'hello, how are you?' I will be tempted to write them back something like 'none of your stupid business, you (insert bad word here). A second before this I would've been really happy. Also, when something like this happens I'll want to scream and Read More »

It’s been about 5 years since I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and nothing about my life has changed one bit since then. I’m at the point where I feel like I have nothing to live for. I hate myself, my body and my mind (the root of all my anxiety). I’ve alienated almost everyone in my life, including friends and family. Now I basically have no friends and I’m so distant from my family. I barely have anyone to talk to, or have anyone that talks to me. I’ve never felt this lonely in life. I basically don’t want to go out of my room, which has basically become a cave that I live in Read More »
Hi there, so I'm new to this forum and this has actually been bothering me for a long time now. This might get really long though but I appreciate any help.

How would you distinguish having a mental disorder from just a cry for attention?

It's just that recently a rather heated debate I had with someone made me question once again whether or not I really had a mental disorder or if I was just being over dramatic with my situation. I've never been to a therapist but I've been thinking of going lately. I'd just like to get some thoughts before I might end up wasting I good chunk of money Read More »
I leave him because i love him to much to stay and play his games and the wait is driving me insane. I come back to him and he takes me back in a heart beat, this time he is mean, I guess he has had enough. I explained to him the reason why, It isnt good enough, Im not good enough. He gets me up to let me down and knowing that it hurts me does it more and more. I hurt myself bad and cant stand myself for letting go the first time, I am trying to make up for it but its not working, he is jerking me like a turkey. Broken Promises for Broken hearts Read More »
I came on here to just get some advice about life, relationships, and moving on. So, please help me out, and sorry about this being extremelyyyy LONG ! Thank you so much .

I have been having a hard time trying to forget my past, what I was done to, and the people that I used to love with all my heart and call friends or best friends. I have been used, lied to, made fun of,let go, unwanted, and forgotten. I have been through so much at such a young age, and this has been happening to me since I was in elementary school . Middle school was even worse for me because I have been treated very Read More »
My boyfriend and i had been dating for 6 months, and then the previous July my boyfriend's best friend called me to tell me that my boyfriend had cheated on me with another girl. At that point i was so aggravated i called him to ask him about it and realized it was true and told him I couldn't see him anymore even though it hurt because i loved him. Then a couple months went by and then in October he asked if we could meet up to see how each other were doing and catch up. I figured there wasn't any harm it that so we went and got coffee together and just caught up on our lives and had fun. La Read More »
Hi, I have been with my ex for 2 years and it was kind of a long distance relationship. He often tried to make me stay but I was afraid because I had my life somewhere else. There was a job opportunity for me to be in the same city as him but I waited too long so I did not get it. Although I am in the same city as him now, he feels that I sabotaged our relationship, that I was unfair to him and that he does not want to be with me anymore. He said that he has put his life on hold for 2 years and that he doesn't know if it would be a good idea for us to be together; that this would be unfair to Read More »

Last summer, my older sister passed away due to drugs, it came down on me very hard, and I fell in a state of depression for a couple months. Recently, (this started about 5 months ago) I've been having drastic mood swings ranging between extreme depression to being on top of the world. Even more recently, about last month, I've been getting extreme feelings of paranoia, (ie. The feeling of being watched etc.) When I was about 10 1/2 I was going to a therapist because my parents had gotten divorced, and I abseloutely hated it, she would say "I won't repeat anything" and then go and tell my pa Read More »
