I have decided to stop living

My reason for posting this is not to get any help, I just want to know if anyone can relate to my situation since I imagine I'm pretty alone in this.
A while ago I decided to stop living. I'm still going to physically live but since I won't kill myself (no need to ask me why) I'm just going to live as if I'm "dead". Basically I'm 18, almost 19, and I'm not in ...

Hanging on

Today is a horrible day. I've been betrayed horribly by someone I trust. They told ALL of my secrets to family members as well as their friends, whom that person knows I hate. Why would all of my secrets be told so flippantly like that?! There are some things about me that I don't feel my family needs to know. And especially people I hate. Why the heck would someone think it was ok to ...

Why Do I have so many problems with this?

Why, why oh why in God's green world do I have so many problems with myself; with anxiety, phobias/ fears and just neuroticism in general. I never wanted to be this way! I seriously never did. I always thought of myself as a very level-headed individual, and prided myself on that.
It's just when I hit puberty everything went to hell. My thoughts went out of control. I couldn't control them - they controlled me. ...

I hate when adults tell you that 21 is suppose to be the best year of your life. The best age. I am in the last 8 hours before I have to submit my portfolio for 3rd year at art school and I almost don't want to do it. I love what I do. I have even been labeled "up and coming" I don't have any lack of commissions or money issues. Most people would ...

Psychological reasons for crying in sleep?

A few months ago, I had found out that I was crying in my sleep. When I would wake up and look in the mirror, I would find traces of tears running from my eyes down to the side of my face. For me, it kind of feels like talking in your sleep or doing things in your sleep, but I have a feeling that my crying in my sleep is being caused by my ...

My life is going down the pooper (like my dreams)

Tiny bit of background, I'm an 18 year old girl living in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, that isn't as fun as it sounds. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder my freshman year of high school. Also not as fun as it sounds.

My problem is, every year has been getting worse for me. It's gotten to the point where I've lost interest in everything I once loved to death. For example, writing has been my biggest ...

I think I need help, but my arrogance hides the truth

Thank you for reading in advance, and any form of constructive comments are welcomed indefinetly. After looking into numerous feeds I've came to realize no one has ever expressed the symptoms I've been feeling with. I am currently a 17 year old male looking for any type of edge I can to help me understand my problems so I can begin fixing them from where they originated.

First off I'd like to add in all ...

How do you see a therapist/psychologist/counsellor

Just wondering how you can see one by doing it yourself. I once saw one but that was because GP fast tracked me to see one and I find that one I saw insulting to every other therapist in the world and you wonderful people on here. So how do you see one on your own?

Just wondering.

Retroactive Jealousy

I wasnt sure whether to post this here or in relationships, but since I think its tied in with my anxiety and depression, I thought it would be best here.

For those of you who dont know what retroactive jealousy is, it "involves obsessive and unpleasant thoughts and emotions regarding a partner’s past relationships and sexual history."

I am a 19 year old female with a 29 year old male. I would really like to ...

Should I tell my psychiatrist about this?

I've always had a bad relationship with my father, but it has gotten worse in the course of the past year or so. I don't even call him dad anymore. I don't hate him, but I wouldn't say I love him either. He is more like an acquaintance to me than an actual family member. I've always felt neglected by him and he made it clear to me and my mom that his friends, even ...
