*TW* I don't know what's wrong with me please help

I'm 18 years old and I suffer from depression, which comes and goes depending on the day. This is not my main problem, however. I also have these urges to harm and kill other people, typically young, attractive women. It generally stems from sexual desire. I hate myself for having these thoughts, but some other part on me wants to act on them. I've been fighting this part of me ever since I became sexually ...

I love my family but not myself *TW*

Hello. I really want to get this off my chest. I love my family so much but I hate myself and it is tearing me apart. The only reason that I am still alive is because I could not do that to my family... I love them too much.

Tonight is one of those nights.

I've been to a few psychologists here and there but I've had mixed responses. I started out with some pretty bad social and general anxiety in high school. I was also suspicious of other things at that time because around then is when I started to develop sort of a detachment from my body. Most of the time now I feel like I'm in a dream, or watching myself ...

*TW* Is it me or is there this obsession with giving up?

I see now mental illness is something people online discuss more openly and people now mention it on tv and elsewhere. I've notice something though online that is kinda making me concerned. I feel people want to talk about their problems more online but most of it feels like all I see is compliance and that there's no hope. I see people expect others to help them in their recovery but not want to do ...

Where you live, places has some support for those who suffer from mental illness? If yes, what are these places and what kind of support is offered?

Irrational fear of change

Here I am, starting yet another topic. I think this is about the sixth one so far. I know that's not causing anyone any problems, but it still makes me feel like I shouldn't. So, I really want to get out and start moving forward in life, because I can't live this way for the rest of my life. I hate living this way. I'm doing pretty much nothing, and I know I'm not contributing ...

Too ill to not be ill? Very confused now

I've been having various health problems in the last years. I've had a long-lasting back injury that kept me out of action for 15 months now. It finally seems to be getting properly better now, with help of... let me count... GP, orthopedist, pain specialist, two sports physiotherapists and now posture specialist. I've got ultra-ultra-rapid cycling bipolar, for which I am seeing a psychiatrist and psychologist, and I am working on my (c-)PTSD with an ...

Enjoy emotionally hurting people?

Hi, I have been recovering (hopefully) from clinical depression.
I'm also new here and not really sure where to post, but was hoping I could find some advice here:).

I've always had fantasies of hurting people that cared about me/that I care about emotionally. I never really thought about it interfering with anything, because I love my family and friends and wouldn't hurt them. Recently though I broke up with my boyfriend, (who I held ...
