Help/suggestions needed

Hello everyone I'm a new member here I decided to make my first post.

I really want to but I'm afraid my parents will just shove it aside as mere whims like they always do. Let me tell a little bit about myself,I grew up in ...

Previous Relationship Caused Neurotic Scars

Context: I’m 18 and I live in Canada. For the past two years and a half I’ve been in a toxic long distance relationship with a girl from Italy. She was my first love. Granted, I made many mistakes during the relationship, but I also learned many valuable lessons and gained compassionate moral values.

She recently broke up with me, so she can be with another guy. She just completely shut off her feelings towards ...

cycling through obsessions

Hello everyone, new here. I'm a 25 yr old male who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety a couple years ago, and bipolar disorder a little over a year ago. I am currently prescribed a anti depressant and a mood stabilizer. So far the mood stabilizer has helped a lot with keeping my manic phases under control.

Out of everything though, the issue that bothers ...

What does the psychologist think?

Probably I'm neurotic for still worrying about this but that's just what I'm wondering.

About 8 years ago, I was with a patient as a nurse in a dialysis clinic. His daughter came to see him. She was also there to take him home. This was the first and last time I ever saw her. She was a Psychology PhD, as her dad told me earlier. And no doubt she was. They both seemed like ...

Is this a new mental illness?

Hi guys

This problem started about a month ago after a night out at uni. What happened was that in the morning i started to remember past mistakes, things i regret saying/doing that made me feel really bad about myself. Normally I might remember things like from my past but my brain would quickly block out the thought not causing me too much stress. This however started triggering even more thoughts. To help myself i ...

Depression/anxiety caused by emotional blockage

Hi, I'm a 21-year-old man from Spain and I decided to log in here to ask for advice.

I've been suffering from anxiety and depression for about 3 years, for which I'd been taking medication until August of 2016. My doctor recommended I stop the treatment since I was feeling better, but it has come back just as it was at the beginning.

I've just started the treatment again but I'm now perfectly aware that ...

Is daytime more difficult for anyone else?

The sun is just about rise here, and I am dreading it...

I prefer the comfort of the night: that is usually when I feel the most happy.

It is as if the sun is illuminating all of the happy lives of others while I stand by and watch things go by...

I judge my performance in therapy

I have a need to be super coherent when I'm speaking with my therapist. I'm way better when I'm planning things out so it's similar to why people like texting over talking. I subconsciously grade myself on my performance after therapy.
Did I stutter?
Was I clear enough?
Did I rant too long?
Did I let my therapist speak?
Was there any progress today?
Another thing that I've been doing now is obsessing over words. ...
