    I am a bully

    Hi I did something unforgiveable last night. For 10 years, my partner and I argue non-stop. I was 100% at fault. If he makes a mistake, I would blame him and shout at him so much like it is the end of the world. I put him down all the time as if he is completely useless. As he was growing...

    Getting help

    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...

    Saw a new psychiatrist today

    I saw a new psychiatrist today who told me that more than depression he thinks that I have a mood disorder. He told me that me it wouldn't be a good idea to prescribe me antidepressants when he thinks is a mood disorder. He told me that in one visit he couldn't give a diagnosis but he thinks is...
