  2. William that sounds very painful for you. 😢 I think all of us want to be remembered. The high school years can be so tough. They were for me as well. You matter, William.
  3. @Radya thanks for responding. Sad to hear you school has no counseling center. In the USA they pretty much all do. If you have health insurance call them and see what counseling they have for you. Also check w local government, church, charities, and local therapists who may offer student discounts. Glad talking to your friend helped. Keep up the effort to make new like-minded friends. Good luck.

    Stress? Anxiety?

    Thank you for your kind comments, last night I talked with my friend who had been in the same situation and showed me a few coping skills, I have been trying those, and it helps a little bit, I feel a little bit better I guess. And no, My collage dont have any counseling center unfortunately.. thats why ım having these problems the college situation is stressing me out sooo much.

  6. Does the college have a counseling center? I would reach out to them for support and you could support others in the process. Something tells me you have a lot to give.

    Stress? Anxiety?

    Hi, @Radya , welcome! First of all, don't worry about mistakes / English! We can understand you well and that's what matters. I'm sorry you've been feeling so unwell! It sounds like serious problems to me and I really think you should consult a professional. Might it be related to the fact you stoped taking your medication? I suppose it's possible, but I'm not a doctor. Also, heart problems can be caused by stress, too: https://www.activebeat.com/your-health/heart-palpitation-8-reasons-for-your-abnormal-heartbeat I'm sorry I don't have time now to write more, but I'll be back another time. Take care!
  8. Hello, I'm having so many troubles recently. Basicially I have a University situation-problem going on for a long time now and I'm extremely stressed about it. I study abroad, so it makes it worse. And now ım having these symptoms incluing, headaches (not severe), nausea, fatigue,anxiety, having hard time breathing (its like something just stuck in my throat) and whenever I go outside, just by walking, my heart goes super crazy. I mean ı can feel it beating so hard and fast. so my question is, is this because of stress? or should I be concerned about it and go back to my country to check it up? I used to take escilatopram for my anxiety, but I got better and stop taking it. And my stress about this situation is on-and-off but right now its very severe and its making me depressed. in summer thought, when ı was in my country I was feeling much better until I came back to my study place. I generally sleep,but recently I started waking up in the night frequently. please excuse my mistakes in grammar if I have any, I'm just freaking out right now.
  9. If that is a fact then certainly your concerns are legitimate. Not good at all. Disrespectful of your feelings. How would he feel if the shoe was on the other foot?

  12. Hi William. I can't imagine how tough it is for someone your age today with all the social media. When I was in high school it was still limited to Myspace and crappy, single-page HTML websites. But kids still had ways to make you feel like you were worthless or didn't matter. Apps like snapchat transform ignoring people into a form of bullying. Society is a jungle. You have to bray like a jackass or screech like a monkey to be heard. It's not much consolation, but the people you consider friends now are not really your friends. They're just people who are in your life...sometimes directly, sometimes peripherally. In a few years, they will literally disappear and new people will enter your life. Maybe some will be your friends. Most won't. That's just life. I never had "real" friends. I'm not even sure such a thing exists. Human relationships are contractually determined through mutual self-interest. Therefore, if you desire "friendship", you must bring something to the table, so to speak. As a quiet person (and I speak from experience), very few individuals will exert the effort to include you in anything. Especially males. I haven't celebrated my birthday in over 15 years. I get a text message or a couple of phone calls from family, but that's it. I haven't had a "cake" birthday since I was younger than you are. You have your entire life ahead of you though. I would highly recommend if you suffer from social anxiety (I do) to ask your parents to take you to a doctor and get some medication for it. Social anxiety can cripple you. If you don't suffer from it, then I would advise you to figure out the things you enjoy doing most, and focus your social life around that. Again - mutual self-interest will provide the basis for friendship, at least in my experience. Many guys your age are into sports. I never was, but that might be an option.
  13. (Sorry for not writing sooner ... Even now, I only have a while left!) I see. I didn't see her view as black-and-white, she seemed quite flexible to me in the series (taking into account some preferences of the 'clients'), but I don't know enough and also... the point is to find something you like and find helpful! I'll think about it and write more later. Take care!
  14. You're welcome, Lilly! I hope (seeing your enthusiasm ) I didn't give you some wrong impression that those articles will change everything for better. Healing is a long and complicated process. But I want you to know there are ressources like these (and surely many others - you can google even some more specific problems of yours) that can bring some useful hints, some guidance, clarifications, ... And I wish you to find them and put them into practice for your own good. You're worth it, you need and will get better, even if it probably sounds too hard to imagine to you, for the moment. Take care!
  15. Oh my god, thank you so much for the words and links i will read everything for sure and try to find if there's some organization or at least an affordable therapist. Im really glad you answered me, this is really helpful. Thank you a lot! 😊♡
  16. Hi, Lilly, welcome! I'm so sorry you're feeling so bad and feel stuck in these problems . The most important thing I would suggest is to find a good psychiatrist. (Even though your current medication doesn't seem to be good for you, it should be possible to find the right one for you. Sometimes one has to try several medications (taking each for several weeks of months) before knowing what works. It's frustrating, but it's a long-term solution and I think it's worth it.) But as you say you cannot afford a doctor , I don't know if mentioning it is even worth it. But perhaps you'll find some affordable option you don't yet know about... (?) I've tried to find some helpful advises on the web, perhaps you'll find here something new that you could try: https://www.healthline.com/health/bipolar-disorder/mania#coping-with-mania https://www.helpguide.org/articles/bipolar-disorder/living-with-bipolar-disorder.htm https://www.healthlinkbc.ca/health-topics/ty6584 Also, this seems to be quite a big issue: I know it's not just a simple decision to change your priorities and behaviour and self-esteem, but I also know it's possible to make even such big changes (= start caring more about yourself, not overly trying to care for others, ...); it takes time and... professional help from a psychotherapist can be of huge help (I know; it's probably too expensive, but, please, check if there really aren't any affordable / free therapists (AND / OR a peer-support group or another kind of organisation helping people with mental illness!) where you live - sometimes you just don't know about it / them!). Here are some suggestions of reading about the topic: https://tinybuddha.com/blog/why-put-ourselves-last-why-self-care-priority/ https://www.psychologytoday.com/ca/blog/sense-and-sensitivity/201401/why-we-help-others-instead-ourselves https://www.terricole.com/the-danger-of-caring-about-others-more-than-yourself/ and The Book of life in general, for instance: https://www.theschooloflife.com/thebookoflife/self-love/ https://www.theschooloflife.com/thebookoflife/category/self-knowledge/mood/ Good luck and keep posting!
  17. its a while ago now.. my birthday is 9th of june. im in 10th grade right now.. i thought i had friends... no one. Absolutly no one apart from my mom and dad remebered my birthday.. no one in my school remebered anything.. My supposed friends didnt seem to remeber it.. neither 8th or 9th grade.. ok? maybe they forgot... but they always remeber everyone else.. i never say anything ever in school. just stare into desk waiting togo home and stare at the roof for 1hour and play games for the rest of the day.. so i guess that could be a possible cause.. this person in my class 10a, invited everyone execpt me and one other dude.. i havent been invited to a birthday party whole 8th - 10th last time i was in was 7th beacause their mom probably forced them to invite the whole class or something.. even thought countless times ive seen birthday parties being sent in class snapchat group.. i dont want to die. i just dont want to wake up anymore.. i bet no one in my school would even notice if i didnt show up one day..
  18. Just by answering its already awesome, really thank you. I don't really know why, but i know how they come. Everytime im uncomfortable, when something happens, it can be a lil thing but it hits me like a train.Thank you very much for the words. ♡
  19. @Lilly I wish I knew what to tell you. I have experienced awful episodes myself. Why do you think this is happening? Remember you don’t have to be productive all the time. You are a human being not a human doing.
  20. Im actually having a real hard time, its been some months im on the maniac phase but sometimes it gets mixed, when i feel down and low. I have been into not so hard crisis but its been two weeks that im compulsively touching myself over and over. Im eating a lot, i feel empty and im not being productive. Sometimes i distract myself and try tp get over it but its not working anymore. I just moved and i feel like this is not my place. Im trembling all the time, and i want to cry. I feel like im going to explode at any moment and i start feeling suffocated, in panic. I feel guilty, everything is a mess i want to end all this. I spend most part of the day euphoric but there's times i feel the panic taking over. I cant cry, i cant ask for help and i dont have money to pay for a doctor. These times i just wish i could end this shit. Im hurting myself. I dont want to live life like this. everyone's too busy to pay attention. I try to tell, but the words dont come out, i feel like they're gonna judge me or think im stupid and want attention. I have some psychosis issues and im constantly paranoid, im trying so hard to do something else that make this get easier but i still feel like i need to talk with someone. Im always giving attention to everyone but i feel like they dont care, maybe im suffocating them and that's why they're leaving? Im alone, all the time. And its heavy. Too heavy to hold, and i still take care of other people. Im loosing control, i keep repeating things to myself that doesnt even make sense, like it wasnt me, i hate this voice. Sometimes i harsh myself in hope that this gives me some kind of relief but nothing works. I wanted to exercise bc i know it helps on anxiety, sleep, mind, health etc, but i cant start, i feel tired all the time, my body is always sleepy, amd when i get the energy to do it i spend it touching myself and feeling bad after that. I used to take remedies last year but they made me got worst, i still have my medication for crisis but its kinda strong for me and i know that if i take it i will sleep, and get lower the next day, and i will feel guilty and more lazy than i already am. Please, im drowning, help me
  21. I wonder how many women in that book openly confess to wanting a sub 4" penis? and if such a woman existed how would one find her exactly? whenever I read women's opinions on penis size I never come away feeling better. Only worse.
  22. I’ve embraced my small penis. I’m at 4 3/4 inches erect. I’ve been married twice. And, have had another long sexual relationship. I know that I am the smallest man that any of the three women have had. Yet, sex was always fun because we varied positions, I relaxed, and we didn’t pretend I was anything but on the small side. I realize I can still be fun in bed and I’m rarely bothered being nude in front of other men. I am a good man. That matters most.
  23. To all men who have a small penis, there is a high chance girls don't really mind. it is more about how you use it. Read some opinions of other women. I recommend Rose Fjord's book "What type of penis do women like?". check it out https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YDZ6WBG

  25. @LaLa Marie Kondo drives me absolutely insane! 😂 She teaches that things are either black or white. They are not. There are so many shades of grey in between. For example...I bought 2 rolls of "pleather", one to recover a sofa, the other for bags I was going to make (my sewing machine is currently blocked by the clutter). We no longer have the sofa. According to Marie Kondo I should get rid of the rolls. I didn't and it's a good thing. See, my husband and daughter's boyfriend both have motorcycle seats that need to be recovered, and I still plan to make the bags. Not to mention the fabric was expensive-even from the discount site. If I sold it, I wouldn't have gotten my money back, then I would have had to purchase it again. See my conundrum? That is the case with many items in our home. They used to be organized... Yes, there are many things I can let go. But without going thru everything, I can't tell you what or where. That is part of being "frozen". I want to get the things out of my home. I am not a hoarder, quite the opposite actually. I prefer minimalism. It gives me peace, but I can't seem to accomplish it. I am actually going to change the focus of my time with my LCSW to how to deal with the combination of bipolar-disorder, ADD & OCPD. This weekend I came to the realization that my inability to deal with my emotions in a constructive way actually comes from the seemingly polar opposite combinations. I would get angry and take it out on my family when I left for my Mom's house, then again when I came home. I'm not sure yet why I was angry when I left, but I know I was angry when I came home because I was leaving "peace" and going back to chaos. I know this is going to be a very long uphill battle, it has been my entire life. At least I have a name for it now. I am way too cognizant of my emotional and mental state, I'm glad. Without that recognition I probably wouldn't be having this discussion with you right now. 😊
  26. Wish I could say things went as well for me. After some experimentation and finding my limitations, wives and partners, tended to direct me away from penetrative sex to providing oral. Can' say it wasn't fun, but it was disturbing in many ways. Maybe if they could have been more honest and I more ready for the truth.
