I Am Concerned About My Mental Health Sometimes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 257 People

    I get in very self destructive moods sometimes.

    I want to binge eat, or buy a pack of cigarettes, or be mean to people that care about me. But somehow it's so great. I feel powerful. I want to **** **** up, inflict pain on myself and other people, and it makes me feel so good.

    True...

    Which is what ultimately convinced Me to seek out therapy. After almost forty years of life, most of it filled with trauma of one kind or another, I finally started it in April of this year, 2011. Though I was extremely hesitant to begin, I'm taking that process (as with life...

    Right, I was sexually assaulted

    as a child, in the same year I nearly lost my grandpa to alcoholism, and had to save my dad's life. Recently I've been very ill, I was hospitalised for a month. I think this stuff has had a traumatising effect on me, I feel as if I'm over it all now though, I feel that the...

    I Don't Know What To Do

    I am increasingly concerned that I may have suffered a breakdown of some sort. Maybe a few. I have done little to address my issues as I am crippled by fear. This is my first foray into admitting I am in trouble. So it is a positive step. It is a splendid day outside but I...

    My panic attacks are getting more frequent now,

    among other things. It's getting to the point that it seriously interferes with my daily activities since I can't get anything done if I feel like I'm going to die. I just want them to go away.

    Because the world doesn't look right to me.

    There are hungry people who need to be fed, homeless folks who need a place to stay. I can't understand how property can be private. I thought the earth belonged to all those who walked it. Money doesn't really exist, and neither does time. I think we've been brainwashed into...

    This is kind of perverse to admit,
