  • 2Is this normal for a 16 year old girl?

    Hi, I am a 16 year old girl. I am at college, well kind of. Anyway, I know none of you can diagnose me on the internet, I just want opinions/ advice etc. So I guess I will start from the beginning (from when I was young)- * My parent didn't like me, They called me names, said they would rather I be dead, I'm pathetic, Low life, disgusting, ugly etc. Pretty much every name you can think of. * They used to hit me, kick me, throw me across rooms, pull my hair, shove soap down my mouth etc. * I was bullied throughout parts of school. * I was sexually assaulted at 13 years old. Anyway so now I am 16, I am at college, finished high school last year- well I dropped out halfway through because it just got too much, I have been having the following symptoms- * Mood swings, like very bad, I will literally go from feeling very confident and hyper to very depressed- The other night I was crying for like 2 hours straight, I even thought about attempting suicide as it gets so severe but then ill be great. * I do stupid stuff, I know everyone does this at times but I do really dumb things, I have had unprotected sex with guys I dont even know and then straight after I feel horrid about it. I have took loads of tablets at once. * I have extreme anger outburst- Like the other day, I saw my sister using my moms ipad, I went up and punched her in the face, I just cant help it. * If someone says the littlest thing it makes me so mad, like if they say something that should be a compliment then I will turn it into a insult. I don't mean to do this. * I have paranoid thoughts, like that people are watching me and I am not safe. * I have dissociation symptoms now and again, where I will do things that I dont remember doing, I will be out with people that I don't know etc. There's others too but I cant really think of them right now, anyway, is there something wrong with me? What should I do? Also I'm at college and I hardly ever show up, I don't know why, something just comes over me, I go in everyday but walk straight out, My mom says Im a good for nothing. Can I just note that at 15 I had depression, even though my psychiatrist didn't even listen to what I had too say. And she said I had that after like 40 minutes.

  • 3Over a year since our baby was born and my wife is still totally uninterested in sex. Is that normal?

    My wife gave birth to our first child and only about 15 months. Our baby is healthy and well , and my wife is physically healthy . But your sex since before the baby was born has been reduced to zero . We both work , and both are busy . And I know that motherhood has meant a much higher burden to my wife . But she always comes home and tells me that, compared with other women She Talks To, who is grateful for the amount of aid they give to the baby and the house . We talked about the problem . It does not really fit the symptoms of postpartum depression . Since the birth of our baby , I've had a vasectomy , so no fear of another pregnancy ( we both agreed we do not want ) . She recognizes that her sex drive is gone , and she feels bad about the effect it has on our relationship . But she does not want to force something that does not really feel inside, and I do not want that . What are the possible medical or psychological causes of this problem ?

  • 6I need college advice going into my second year at a ranked university. I worked really hard freshman year but?

    Currently I have a 3.2 GPA I have plans to go to law school either to practice family law or take the GRE and hope to enter a graduate program in Psychology classified . I wonder is it possible or unlikely also to pull my GPA up to 3.5 or higher with luck. What I learned about myself is that I could have done more , as if I did wrong in the first tests , and coming to the end of each semester that got the hang of classes and started doing better. Also any good study tips ? and ways to engage and maintain good gpa Im thinking sleepless .

  • 9I'm transferring to a four-year university next year and I have a question about college transcripts.?

    My transcripts are a real concern for me . In my twenties I totally do not know what I wanted to do in life or study and my transcripts from my school and community college I attended before that looks like a train wreck . I ended up being on probation for a low gpa and retreats more and finally left college together after my financial aid was denied by this. I stopped going to college for a couple of years and then decided to go back and appeal my suspension and college financial aid . The reality hit after I had my son , married , and could not find a job worthwhile . I regretted my choices in life during my twenties , but when I am wrong, I was a kid ! I have my appeal approved of my community college and I have my financial aid reinstated . I was able to pull my gpa up to a C and I'm almost reaching a B now . I graduate next year from my community college and go to a four-year university to study psychology as a major . My college acceptance is guaranteed , however , I wonder if I'll ever be able to apply to graduate school . I mean , I know that the next two years of my degree I can excel and get grades of A and B , but what about what my transcripts look like before that? ? It's gonna be there when I apply to graduate school that adversely affect my chances of being accepted into graduate school , even if I have a 4.0 from my degree ? Too bad , we're talking like 11 F w ect of D ' s . Even if I have my degree and graduate with a 4.0 will be an obstacle for me , not be able to overcome ? I think it's a bit unfair ... I am a totally different person than I was in my twenties .

  • 11My friend is thinking about adoption for her two year old daughter and five year old boy?

    She has no family support, no real friends accept for me and I have a lot on my plate myself or I would help her. She doesn't get child support and her parents are both dead. Their father is no where to be found. She is having a hard time making it on her own. She is overwhelmed and has threated to drive herself off a cliff. She wants them to go to a good christian family and to be together. The kids are very bonded to eachother. She would also like an open adoption preferably in Colorado so that she could visit them. Do you know of any good open adoption sites for older kids?
