Do I even have depression??

Do I even have depression??

For most of my life I have felt isolated and like no one actually cares about me. I have a really hard time figuring out what emotions I’m dealing with and I feel like a bother to everyone. I feel as though there is no way I can have a future. With that said I feel like there’s no reason for me to feel this way. I know that I could talk to people but on the rare occasion that I do I feel like they would rather be anywhere else so why even bother. The thing is that I also know people… read more

Does self hatred cause depression or depression cause self hatred?

Does self hatred cause depression or depression cause self hatred?

The reason i ask is simple. I took a little test and scored 35 on a self hatred test. Didnt really surprise me as that is something well that i have always had. Something the short time i was in counseling that was never brought up. Does anyone else have this where well they hate themselves? I know i have hated myself for a very long time.

My question is about meth addiction

How to deal with toxic relative

How to deal with toxic relative

Met my cousin yesterday as she often asks me to meet her and as usual she put me down and made critical remarks about my looks and appearance and other aspects of my life. I don't know why she does it - she's prettier than me, has a job and family and hasn't suffered from depression as far as I know. As usual I didn't respond to this at the time, just let it go, but after these meetings I'm so angry for days thinking what she said to me. I would never be deliberately hurtful to… read more

Does anyone else have long, involved, vivid dreams?

Does anyone else have long, involved, vivid dreams?

I don’t get them every night, but I’ve had them the past two nights and I wake up tired and worn out in spite of sleeping 10-11 hours. I wouldn’t call them nightmares, but they’re very emotional and seem so darn REAL. Sometimes I even wake myself up because I’m moaning, groaning, or trying to yell in my sleep. I read that antidepressants can cause this, so I was wondering if any of you were experiencing the same thing. I think it’s from either the Effexor or read more

Quacks representation of mental illness.

Quacks representation of mental illness.

I am so angry. I hardly ever watch shows like Dr Phil because of the sensationalism. But yesterday I was scrolling thru the channels and saw he was interviewing a Bi Polar woman and a woman with DID. Well the family of the Bi Polar woman and the “Dr.”. went on to show a violent and abusive young woman who swung from depression to violence several times a day. She physically attacked family, friends and was completely paranoid and lied all the time. The audience ate it up.… read more

High sex drive

High sex drive

Hi all,

Thanks for taking the time to read my message, I am at a point of being desperate and don’t know what the solution is.

I have suffered with depression all my adult life (I am 31) and have had periods where I have been perfectly in control with medication.

However when I am not in control my sex drive is dangerously high. I have been in a (generally) happy relationship for 13 years but in the past 18 months since turning 30 I have been uncontrollable. I still love my boyfriend very much… read more

Do I reconcile with my sister or do i leave things as they are
