How to explain to family why I want to work part-time?

I've been having some very bad bouts of depression lately and it actually affects my ability to concentrate as well as my motivation to perform well in my job and I just don't feel fit enough to work full-time at the moment, so I'm thinking of working part-time instead.

My family doesn't know about my mental health issues though. They can be so judgemental of me at times which is why I don't bother to ...

Strong emotions, especially shame

Hi all

I've been working hard dealing with my anxieties and for the most part, making head way. I have a clearer grip on the nature of my problems and how they function. It helps me deal with my condition and life.

I've hit a bit of a stumbling block. I find certain situations set off very intense emotions. It can be fear, anger (usually internalised), guilt etc. I get a strong physical sensation, which ...

Very volatile mood..

I've noticed lately that my mood changes very easily throughout the day. Just today, I woke up feeling pretty decent and went to school, but in second period, I thought a classmate was being purposefully rude and that made my mood plummet. I was feeling extremely low and self-conscious for the next few hours, until someone complimented me on my shirt during last period, which made me instantly happy and social and excited for life. ...

Mental Illness Hypochondriasis

Hey. I'm new here, so sorry if I posted this in the wrong place or something.

Anyway, I think I might have hypochondriasis, but instead of physical illnesses, it's mental illnesses. First, around October 2016, I thought I might have anorexia/schizophrenia. That only lasted a weekish, and it wasn't that distressing. Then, I thought I had major depression. This has lasted until now, and it's kind of still going on. A month or two ago, ...

Living with Emotional Numbness

My reason for posting here is that I'm dealing with a problem which I can't really find on many psychotherapist websites in my area. It is quite a specific problem, and I would like to hear people's advice on what I should do. I'm a guy in his 20's; currently in college. A couple years ago, back in high school, I went through a very stressful period in my life, which lasted about 4-5 months. ...

(Content warning: mention of abuse, dissociation?)


I am not sure which category this would have been best posted under... Which is why I went with General, I hope it's okay. This is something that's extremely hard for me to talk about as I've been scared/ashamed of this pretty much throughout my childhood and onto early adulthood.

I don't have very many memories of my childhood, in particular of certain periods that I can only ...
