• I can't stop cutting?

    I'm 17, been cutting off and on since I was 13. I've been cutting everyday this past week. Usually 3-4 big cuts on my thighs a day. I got caught today by my parents and they hid all the razors and knives. I have the urge to cut myself again but there's no razors. I'm starting to freak out.

    Hi there, I am looking for helpful advice, so please no making dumb comments, rude remarks etc. I got a new job at the beginning of the month. And to be honest, I'm not happy there at all. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I come home from work in tears. I want to find another job, and am looking currently for a new one. My husband knows my situation and is okay if I cannot take it anymore to put my notice in to quit. I am scheduled to work the next three days and I am dreading it and am getting anxiety pretty bad. I have told myself to give it some time to see if the job gets better, but I don't know how much longer I can hold on. My question is, if I cannot take it anymore, and I feel like my health and mental health is in jeopardy, is it okay to just put a one week notice in?

    At first they are hot and cold, then they are caring, protective, spend tons of money on you, super romantic, then starts calling you names, tries to get you to lose weight, and hits you. In the beginning we play fought but later it becomes rougher and forceful to the point where it leaves marks. They make excuses like "they like to play rough/ It's just a kink/ you look sexier with it/ theyre working on their rage and it'll never happen again. Keep in mind it can be a man or woman.

  • A brown spot appeared on my stomach after tanning, I'm only 14. It appears to be an age spot, but I'm still scared it's cancer.?

    Best answer: It doesn't sound like a cancerous lesion. If you are fair skinned, you should not tan. If you protect your skin now with sunscreen every day, you will be very happy you did when you get older. I know it's hard to think that way when you are 14, but it's true.

    Best answer: It sounds like you have been going through a lot lately. It is important to understand that the thoughts that you think dictate the feelings that you feel. If you think negative or sad thoughts, your brain releases chemicals that make you feel sad. If you think positive thoughts, your brain releases chemicals that make you feel happy and calm. To overcome depression, you must change your thought patterns, otherwise known as using “thought stopping techniques.”
    One way to do this is to carry around a small notebook and write down every negative or sad thought that you have. This will help you to see how many of your thoughts are negative. The average person thinks a negative thought every two minutes! Then, after writing down the negative or sad thought, immediately write down or say out loud a positive thought. Come up with a list of positive thoughts that you can tell yourself: “I’m OK.” “Today is a good day because I am choosing that it will be.” “I am strong.” “This too will pass, and I will get through this.”
    Additionally, check out the following 99 coping skills, which can help you to refocus your thoughts on positive things: http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/DiscoverIt/Articles/Pages/99-Coping-Skills.aspx
    Sometimes it can help to talk to someone and tell them about what you are going through. Please know that there are people who can and will help you with what you are going through. You may want to consider talking with a counselor at a hotline. There are many hotlines that are 24/7 and will work with you and situations like yours. Some even have email and/or chat if you would prefer. Hopefully, you will continue to reach out! Sincerely, KO, Counselor

    Best answer: Yes, chemo has side effects and some can be nasty. But is one of the most effective treatments available, along with other science-based treatments which cure or improve the lives of people every day. Herbal treatments have not been proved to work for any cancer, and they are a lot riskier. When weighing up the risk/benefit ratio, you need to look at robust, peer-reviewed data. Not some "alternative" medicine website. Or, follow the advice of your oncologist - the trained person who has been studying the science for years.
