    I hugged my therapist?

    Hey. So i've been in therapy (because of anxiety and some childhood issues) for about 1,5 years now. I usually do battle quite a bit to still keep control over what information I share and how I feel about things and I'm somewhat unemotional, I have not cried in therapy (but have once after a...

    The urge to hug someone

    2 years ago I had my first experience of visual and audio hallucination. At that time I was already being placed on 40mg zeldox as maintenance prevention. So after this psychotic episode where I almost completely lost control of my mind, the psychiatrist asked me to take 80mg instead...

    My brother makes me extremely anxious...

    Last night and today my brother has been very... affectionate. He recently started going out with a girl and she told him he should be more expressive, and apparently that's triggered a wave of 'i love yous', hugs, kisses to my head or my forehead, and other gestures that make me extremely...

    Need a hug

    I just need a hug. A big loving cuddle. Like a proper bear hug. I need a warm, tight, meaningful, loving, hug. A reassuring hug that says don't worry i'm here for you, its okay. A proper hug.

    Attachment to therapist

    I am really struggling with strong attachments to my therapist. I've been in such a state these last few months and I've been desperate for a hug and she won't hug me. Im dealing with abuse from my past and she said she doesn't want to abuse me too. She won't hug me because of my feelings for her.

    Obsessed with my therapist

    I adore my therapist and I think about her all the time. I want to be with her all the time, and I want to hug her every time I see her. I wanted to ask her for a hug the last time I met with her, but I wasn't brave enough to ask.

    My shrink is on vacation, so can't see him. It will pass and I did it to myself - I binge drank again last night and am feeling down, low and obsessing over the past etc as I always get when hungover. Also skipped meds as scared to take them with that much drink inside me. I have been fine...
