This was difficult for both myself and them to understand. At the moment I'm being excluded, and gossiped about socially. It feels horrible because I rly do need support right now. How can I maintain relationships with my illness? I start off with brilliant friendships, but they tend to fall apart because I will go through an episode. At least now I know the problem. Please help me?

He joined my friendship group where I thought I had some rly close awesome friends. I had a fight with my closest friend. Honestly it was a rly small issue until the friend I rekindled my friendship with starting bitching about me to her... He is very manipulative. Things haven't been the same since the fight with me and my best friend. My best friend, and the friend I rekindled my friendship with started getting rly close. Then out of the blue, the friend I rekindled my friendship with decided to get furious with me about God knows.. I felt exhausted by everything and deactivated my fb. I know he has been bad mouthing me to my group of friends and I think they hav all taken his side. They haven't contacted me. The friend I rekindled my friendship with messaged me nasty stuff and said he didn't want to talk to me again. I'm fine with this, but I don't want to lose my other friends. How do I get my best friend back? Should I break the silence and message her? Or give it time?

I don't want to have sex with her, but I think I definitely would if I was a guy. I think she is beautiful, but I also know there are way prettier girls out there, but I personally, think she is particularly beautiful, maybe because of her personality. But I still want to have sex with guys, but with guys I haven't found that connection personality wise. Haha.. It's almost like she would b perfect for me if she was a guy, or I was a guy. This is very weird and confusing to me. Makes me question myself. My friend is straight. So am I- I thought, but then there is this love I have for my friend. But it's not sexual, only intellectual. Please, can someone help me work out what's going on?? I'm really confused.

    I'm a uni student and life out of home, but my friend lives with her family. I met my friends parents a few weeks ago. I was nothing but polite, and from what I could see it went well. Then a few weeks later found out my friend had an argument with her parents because they had accused me and being her lesbian lover. I'm not gay, and don't consider gay an insult, but the assumption hurt my feelings. Decided it was better to laugh about it so just make jokes about it now. However, when me and my friend hang out, usually studying, she always gets phone calls harassing her about where she is. So she went home and had a massive fight with her family. Wouldn't tell me what happened which is unusual. But she has told others. And I walked in on her talking about it to someone. Apparently her parents said she is in an abusive relationship, and just because I don't hit her, it's detrimental to her as I take up too much of her time where she should be studying, and I put ideas in her head. She recently dropped a subject, because she wanted to and I'm getting the blame for it. I find it sickening they would say something like that as I have only met them once, was nothing but polite, and have had my own experience with truly abusive relationships (restraining order from my ex bf). My friend is awesome, and I don't want to lose her, but also don't wAnt to mess up her family. I find this whole thing is stressful to me as well. Not sure what to do.

  • Raising my GPA?

    My gpa was pretty good but then I did something really stupid. I convinced myself I was going to fail a subject, so I didn't turn up for the final exam of another subject I had already passed so I could study for it. Yes, I have serious anxiety. Is it possible to fix my gpa or have I just messed everything up?

My friend is not interested in my roommate, she is interested in someone else. I don't want my roommate to hit on my friend, or ask her out. It would make it weird when she comes to my house.

She's really upset about it. I don't understand why this guy would reject her. This girl is way better than him. She's lovely. This guy is nice looking, but stupid and not that interesting. The reason I ask is if this girl can't get a boyfriend, what chance do the rest of us have? I've had relationships in the past but they've been with horrible people. I just don't understand why this isn't happening for my friend.

    Me, my friend, and another friend (they had never met)- went away for a weekend in the city. It was going awesome, everyone was getting along and we were having fun. But something happened. Me and my friend have an odd sense of humour and when we get together we bounce off each other and sometimes go too far. People don't really get us sometimes. Anyway, my other friend really needed to go to the loo and was running around like a crazy person to find one. We were helping her look, but we also laughed at her because she looked ridiculous. Seriously, thought she was going to tackle anyone who got in her way. It was really late at night. I could tell she was getting upset so I told my other friend to stop. When she finally found one, we waited for her, but she obviously exited at a different door, and walked off in the city in the middle of the night. I have serious anxiety (to the point where I'm medicated) and was beside myself. She's only 19, alone in the city, in the middle of the night. Thought she was going to die. My other friend was upset with her. Said she was being really immature. I called her a few times, finally got onto her and when I did I yelled at her and told her to wait where she was. I think she knew she had gone too far, so she didn't oppose. We met up and it was super awkward. I was a mess, I couldn't look at her. My other friend can't handle awkwardness and wanted to leave. She later apologised to both of us but it feels weird between us. I'm still upset.

For example, my lecturer approached me and said the tut would b cancelled due to him having to attend a funeral of a close friend. My friend says "at least ur whole family didn't die in a car accident". She always talks about herself, and I don't think she cares about what's happening in others lives. I did a group assignment with her and ended up doing the whole thing. She lied throughout that whole experience, put me through hell, and has not once apologised or recognised she did the wrong thing. She invites people over to my house for a party then doesn't show up and leaves me to entertain them. I didn't even want people to come over. How do I deal with a person like this?

She does small things deliberately to piss me off- like turns the heater up really high in the car, puts it on a song that she knows I hate, winds the window down when It's freezing. I'm not being paranoid.. She literally told me she does it to teach me a lesson or piss me off. She pretends to have no social skills- makes really racist and inappropriate jokes. For example, something bad happened with my dad (horrible and unusual situation), and now she calls him my "domestic abuse daddy." She invites people to my house.. It's study break at uni and she organised this whole party. Then she didn't turn up and I was left to entertain. I didn't even want these people over to begin with. Just wanted to study myself. Then sends me this abusive text message blaming me for everything. Yesterday did her a favour and handed in her assignment. No thank you. I have a lot of stress at home and personal issues and I feel like I can't deal with her anymore. Unfortunately she's in my social circle. What should I do?

But he didn't deserve what he got. He was punched in the face and started to bleed. My dad feels terrible. This is so strange and out of character for him. I told my dad that while my brother was a dick, he went too far. I told my friend and he's really down on my dad. Honestly I'm a little on my dad's side. My brother is a jerk.
