Mental health assessment

I was asked if I had access to children and that is just a standard question they ask everyone.

Thinking back on my life, that was the first time I had been asked.

Tried google and can't find anything about this at all.

Is what the mental health professional told me about it being a standard question true?
Why have I never been asked before if that is the case?

I personally feel lied to ...

I'm a lost soul, living in a lonely world

A little history about my life. My family split up when I was 14. My dad was in the navy and was never home; and when he was he treated me like I was a piece of $#%^ and neglected me. My mom was a full blown alcoholic. I was tossed back in forth between the two, and my aunt at one point until I was 17. I lost respect for both of them and ...

not sure where to start.

this might be a little long, i'm not sure, but i'll put my point at the bottom anyways so skip there if wanted.

I recently discovered that I wasn't the one being bullied, just the bully. I was a really smelly (i had bad hygiene lol.) kid in middle school, so people didn't want to be around me and honestly I hated everyone, but I'm human so of course I was sad about it. A ...

I don't know if it's anxiety

Hi. I'm new. I've had depression for for about 15 years. I've "suffered" from it off and on. But have been mostly managing it with medication. But recently I've been having these attacks of fear. But I don't know what the fear is. I get nervous and panicked. My breathing gets faster. I'm scared but I don't know why.

Is this normal, or should i be worried? *Trigger Warning*

(Sorry if this was post in the incorrect topic, I just joined this website not too long ago.)
Please read full post:

I personally have tons of violent fantasies, but I also have the urge to tried to live out my violent fantasies too, and they are very strong. I literally tried choking my brother twice, before realizing what I was doing. I have always had violent urges, and the older I get, the more ...

Improving my quality of life

Hello, I'm new here and felt I needed a place to share my current struggles.

I've had depression and anxiety since my early teens. I've only ever received treatment a bit less than 2 years ago and took an antidepressant for a year and 2 months. I am now 9 months antidepressant free but I do wonder if that was the best decision. I wanted to be on a contraceptive at the same time as ...

We have to go back culturally

I have no idea where to put this. This subforum is probably the most "general forum" out of all subforums.
Preamble for the people who don't know: I have schizoid personality disorder.

I have been thinking. I think mental disorders are inherent to our culture. Our culture and our way of life is literally making people sick. We are supporting a system that generates the very problems that we don't want to have. With "system" ...

Help, from anyone but hopefully some smart minds

I don't have energy ever to do anything useful in my life. I sleep a lot and still feel drained a lot. I know what I need to do in my life but never have the energy or motivation to do it. I always overthink and overanylaze everything and when I do start doing things that I need to do in my life I stop from lack of motivation. I just need help to learn ...
