• Going to college: Getting away from parents?

    I'm going into high school, but I someday want to go to college. My parents like to pick on me and put me down and have done so for all of my life. They make me feel horrible, but I don't want to leave them for some reason. I feel guilty but then I remember how they hurt me and I just want to leave and never come back. We definitely... show more
    I'm going into high school, but I someday want to go to college. My parents like to pick on me and put me down and have done so for all of my life. They make me feel horrible, but I don't want to leave them for some reason. I feel guilty but then I remember how they hurt me and I just want to leave and never come back. We definitely don't have a normal relationship, to say the least. Has anyone left their parents behind and started anew at college?

  • Teenage discipline and parents: what is crossing the line?

    Two nights ago, my parents and I got into a fight. They saw that I had 2 B's and freaked out. They called me a liar for telling them I turned in my homework when I "didn't." (I did.) They said I was never going to get into college, and I shouldn't go to school anyway if I was going to be this worthless. What hurt the most is... show more

What hurt the most is that they said something was mentally wrong with me and wouldn't allow me to explain.

  • Borderline personality disorder or teenage life?

    I am only a fourteen year old female, but I think I might suffer from BPD. I took this test that tells you whether you are at risk for any personality disorder, and it said I was extremely high risk for BPD and Avoidant Personality Disorder. I have done my research.

    I am only a fourteen year old female, but I think I might suffer from BPD. I took this test that tells you whether you are at risk for any personality disorder, and it said I was extremely high risk for BPD and Avoidant Personality Disorder. I have done my research. I know it is very, very risky to diagnose a teenager with a personality disorder, but do you think I might have one? - I'm shy, although I wasn't as a kid. At about 11, I started retreating into a shell. - I have many friends, but I have hard times meeting new people. It makes me nauseous. The only person I trust is my best friend. - I want relationships, but all of them (excluding my best friend) are awkward, and I get angry when people don't live up to my expectatioins. - I'm open-minded, but I hate ignorance. It makes me angry, and my anger is VERY hard to control. - My relationship with my parents is horrible, especially with my mom. They are very blunt and hurt my feelings. - Somedays I feel totally depressed, but sometimes I feel super happy and hyper. It never lasts long. - My aunt is bipolar. I realize this isn't the same, but could it be related?

  • Is this too much makeup?

    I turn 14 in a few weeks. Here is what I wear: foundation under my eyes,powder, tiny bit of blush, light brown eyeliner (just enough to lightly line my eyes!) and volumizing brown mascara. Oh, and chapstick. For dressier times I wear the same things but with lipstick. i never wear eyeshadow or lipgloss. (hate them both!)

  • Aura colors-question?

    I know that is not uncommon to have two colors in your aura, but I cannot find any information on my combination. I have a lavender and violet aura. I took the test out of Life Colors and I got 12 on both of them. So am I an equal amount of both colors or is one actually more dominant than the other? i need information. Thanks!

  • Would I be allowed to go with my friend to a therapist? Important.?

    My friend and I have been having the same problems: we daydream constantly, (I'm not sure about her, but I have Maladaptive Dreaming problems.) we can't sleep because we have horrible nightmares, sometimes we can't focus on reality because we have daydream nightmares that are so vivid we can barely tell reality and the nightmares apart,... show more
    My friend and I have been having the same problems: we daydream constantly, (I'm not sure about her, but I have Maladaptive Dreaming problems.) we can't sleep because we have horrible nightmares, sometimes we can't focus on reality because we have daydream nightmares that are so vivid we can barely tell reality and the nightmares apart, and overall we just can't focus. She is going to a therapist, and said she couldn't do it alone. (We both are afraid to be alone for long periods of time now.) We are both 13. I understand I'd have to notify my parents for obvious reasons, but can I go with her just this once? Like a group session?

  • Makeup ideas for school?

    I need some ideas for my makeup on my first day that isn't too dark, but brings out my eyes. I have medium brown hair with blonde highlights, green eyes, and pale skin that burns easily. I'm going into eighth grade so I need to be age appropriate.

  • Do I seem depressed, or is it something else? I know it's long, but please read it.?

    I used to be depressed about 2 years ago, but now I've gotten over that. I used to be really extroverted as a child, but now I'm a completely different person. I don't feel sad, I just like to be alone. I like to daydream and read because I've always wanted to live a different life. With a new family, new friends, new past.. Most of... show more
    I used to be depressed about 2 years ago, but now I've gotten over that. I used to be really extroverted as a child, but now I'm a completely different person. I don't feel sad, I just like to be alone. I like to daydream and read because I've always wanted to live a different life. With a new family, new friends, new past.. Most of the time I just listen to music and daydream. Sometimes I go out with friends but I don't really have fun. I just don't like to socialize unless it's one on one conversations. Part of this may be because I have no energy. (I'm getting blood work done in a few days.) I just can't sleep. I have nightmares and when i look at things they always look scary, like mirrors. I just want to know what you guys think.

  • What does my dream mean? I keep having it over and over?

    I keep having this dream were I am in a really big room, most of the time it's a church sanctuary. A demon leans over a baby dressed in white in a crib and picks it up. I get this protective urge to save it, though I don't really know if it's mine. I run towards the baby and the demon, but I can never reach them. The demon looks at me... show more
    I keep having this dream were I am in a really big room, most of the time it's a church sanctuary. A demon leans over a baby dressed in white in a crib and picks it up. I get this protective urge to save it, though I don't really know if it's mine. I run towards the baby and the demon, but I can never reach them. The demon looks at me and starts laughing, and while all this happens the room is in flames. Can anyone tell me what this is? I keep seeing it everywhere. When I sleep, when I daydream. It really scares me because I'll just be daydreaming of pleasant things and the dream will just take over my mind...
