    Hello, I am new here, I literally made my account today so I am a little hesitant about posting what I am about to say. Due to the fact that I do not know anyone that has tourette and that going to see a psychiatrist or psychologist is super expensive I decided to have my good friend "google"...

    The Burden of my Whole Life is Before me

    I try to remember what it was like in my thirties. I remember the hyper sexuality and the crying every month when I felt shame for my adultery. I don't necessarily believe that this was a bad thing to have hypersexuality. If my husband had been interested, it could have worked out fine and...

    Anxiety about going to sleep

    My moods have been up and down quite a lot lately - not major swings or anything like that, just enough to be a bit concerned about. (My psychiatrist knows about it and tweaked my meds.) Yesterday I did a 4 hour hike with my dad (impressive for me at the weight I'm at), and it was a really...

    Really need to find a vent. So lost and detatched.

    Yea, so I'm thinking this is how I feel, I am perplexed. I feel like I'm somebody's toy, that I am only relevant when somebody else is bored. When I see you open the app but not even check my message it hurts, because I know that you intentionally avoided me, you saw and choose to ignore. How...

    TRIGGER WARNING, MAYBE TMI? Hello, my name is Han and I was hoping maybe someone could help me. I don't remember my life from ages 4-8, but rather snippets as if someone has cut out a crude jig saw puzzle filled with my memories. I don't remember any visits with my father, even though I know...

    Please help me !!

    Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I have been suffering from severe OCD for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately OCD runs in my family(my grandmother and my parents to some extent). So, probably, I have inherited it genetically. I remember having OCD issues right from my childhood. But...
