    My POCD nightmare.

    Hi. I'm new to the forum. I'm in my 20s and...well, basically. I'm scared out of my mind. Now, I don't have a sex life at all, so masturbation has been a big thing for me for a good number of years since pre-13. I also have a foot/tickle fetish.

    Self-loathing and depression.. I need a way out

    I'm a 25 year old man with self-esteem issues that ruin my life and suck every ounce of pleasure out of my days. I'd appraciate any help and advice because honestly, at this point I have no idea what I should do. About 5 years ago, I noticed a feature on my face: I have a small, receding chin...

    Overcoming Agoraphobia

    Overall, I've spent maybe six years with going out only a handful of times. So, yeah, I'm pretty much a veteran. My question is how does one begin to move on after being stuck inside in fear for so long? I want to live but I'm so damn afraid - I want to go outside to museums, aquariums, art...

    Self-Loathing

    I feel so utterly consumed by self-loathing; I feel it radiating from every pour. Has anyone got any advice regarding how to 'forgive' ourselves & begin to move on from the past?
