I have a weird problem. My older father hates to use the brakes in his car. I know he has some arthritis in his legs and all, but I don't think that is the problem, because I see him brake when he really has to. Mentally I think he is still sharp.

No I think it is some weird OCD or autism. He is strange in many ways. He didn't used to drive like this when we were younger. But I noticed one time a while back when he told me that the mechanic said his brake lining in his car was still so good after so many miles and the mechanic was amazed. My dad was very happy about that, as he considered Read More »

Since I was little I've always had trouble going somewhere new or staying sonewhere I'm not used to unless I'm with a "safe" person. Safe is my meaning if I've known them for a long long long time and have gotten to trust them. Over the summer, I was chosen out of hundreds of applicants to serve at a Christian camp. It would be my first time away from anyone "safe" for over a couple of hours. A week, actually. An hour into being there I was curled up on my bunk trembling and feeling like I was being physically choked, calling my mom to pick me up.
Keep in mind, I'm a 17-year-old senior in h Read More »
I'm an ex drug user. My anxiety is the reason i used and i'm currently dealing with an elevated level of anxiety. My mind goes over things constantly, and my body reacts. My head says 1441, 4114, 4114, 1441, 4114, 1441, 1441, 4114, 4114, 1441, 1441, 4114, 1441, 4114, 4114, 1441. While this is happening my body jerks in a pre predicted pattern and wont stop until I go over the pattern perfectly in my head. Sometimes its while i'm driving or talking and I can't respond or move on to the next thing until i'm completely finished. If this makes any sense to you please let me know what to do. I'm Read More »

I have been having a hard time trying to build myself up. I know I have low self esteem when I can have better self esteem about myself. I read in a book that living a healthy life, liking who you are, and basically living life believing in who you are and where you are going can actually make your face grow. The book stated that, "Do you ever see an actor with a small face?" Which actually made me ponder on the fact that I really don't know any actors with unhealthy small faces. I don't know if it is true or not. Anyways, my question is, if that is true can it have the opposite effects? Can Read More »
