    What’s wrong with me

    Hello everyone. I want to start off by saying my name is Adrien. I am a 33 year old male and as far back as I can remember I have always had a depression problem. It use to be worse when I was younger but by that I just mean I didn’t really hide it well back then. In these last 5 years I’ve...

    I need an urgent reply from ALL of you plzz

    I have told you in my previous thread about my therapist that I am very close to her because she was always available 24/7 but now she has changed her attitude. Although I know this is right attitude because she wants me to become strong (I assume this reason because she hasn't told me). But...

Had a year and half psychotherapy but I couldn’t afford to carry on. I’m not suicidal but what’s the point of...

    Is it wrong to want to be thin for looks alone?

    Do I have the wrong mindset if I want to be slender because it would personally look better rather than just monitoring health? To be attractive and desirable is something that I think about often. Probably because I don't have very many friends. My husband thinks Im fine but I feel heavy...
