    Hello! I am a high school senior planning on going to college this fall. I was a very enthusiastic student until I was recently diagnosed with depression. After the diagnose, I have completely stopped being passionate about anything but helping others, no interest in the subject I learn at school, no interest in money or wealth in general, no interest in having any deep relationship with anyone. I used to be a high achiever, but now I am settling for the good. For instance, As long as I get an A in class, 91 and 100 do not really bother me, or passing an exam and mastering it do not have any effect on me emotionally. I know this is not healthy and want to be like my old self. I still have straight As, but I don t care about school like I used to when I was younger. I am planning on becoming a doctor/ psychiatrist and help others. I am confident that I will make it happen, but I am afraid my lack of enthusiasm is going to affect me in any type of way. So my question is, do any of you people feel the same way? Is this part of being a young adult, or does it have to do with my depression? Thank you so much!

  • Why do I enjoy hurting people? could there be something wrong with me or am I just a bad person?

    I'm 18 and as a kid I always played the bad guy and hurted other kids as a part of the game but when I grew up from that I started making fake profiles online to cyber bully my friends and other people I came across online, I just looked at it as a game and I thought it was funny seeing my friends being upset.... show more

I've also gotten into relationships just I can make the other person feel misrable when I break up with her and I don't enjoy sex unless the other person is in a lot of pain. I mostly only hurt people emotionally but I love hurting them physically too, its just harder to hurt people physically without getting in trouble. I'm really good at hiding this but I'm afraid I might eventually do something I can't hide

  • I wish i was fully white?

    I am half white half Mexican, and i hate it. Nothing against Mexicans, but i really don't belong in any races. I cant ever have pretty blonde hair or i will look dumb, i'm adopted and look nothing like my (white) family. I kind of just wish i was dead.

  • What do you do to reduce stress and anxiety?

    Best answer: Exercise! Exercise that requires concentration and sweat. It requires your brain power to focus on the exercise and puts the stress producers on a back burner. Physical fitness allows me to better handle the stresses of life.

    Best answer: It sounds like you are going through a lot right now. Not only are you experiencing emotional distress, but it also seems like you are dealing with some pretty intense physical symptoms. It is good that you are reaching out. You may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety in this situation. Anxiety can affect you in many ways including your breathing, your sleep, interaction with others, and mood. It can even cause some really serious physical symptoms. Some people might experience a few anxiety (panic) attacks while others can have more. These feelings can be hard to cope with on your own and talking with someone could help. Sometimes those around you may not even know how anxious you are feeling.

    When you start feeling anxious, it is important to remind yourself to relax and consider things that are positive for you. Making a list of what makes you happy, even the little things, could help you be reminded of what is working in your life. Deep breathing and stretching can help you ease muscle tension and take care of the physical symptoms of anxiety too. Try activities that you like in order to get your mind off the anxiety as well. Activities like working out, journaling, listening to music, or reading a book are all good options to distract you. Try to relax and take time to do those kinds of activities to see if they help.

    Brain illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or other mood or anxiety disorders, when left untreated, unfortunately may also result in suicide. I would consider seeking professional help like a therapist, school counselor, teacher or a psychiatrist. Talk to a family member that can help you talk about your feelings. Please know that you are not alone! If you would like to discuss this further reach out to a Crisis Hotline in your area and speak with a trained counselor by phone, chat, text or email.

    Whatever you plan to do, please keep reaching out and take care!
    Take care,
    NK, Counselor

    Best answer: It sounds like she's developing some paranoid thoughts. She should probably see a doctor. Schizophrenia often presents itself in one's twenties, and some of the symptoms you've mentioned seem to fit that description. Whether or not its schizophrenia, her medication might need to be adjusted, because brain chemistry sometimes alters from teen to adulthood.

    You haven't mentioned her being suicidal lately, which is good. It might be easier convincing her to go to see an outpatient therapist, and a hospital stay may not be necessary (though only a doctor physically seeing her may know for sure.)
