    I wish I were a different person. I hate my stomach the most. It sticks right out- so much that multiple people have asked if I m pregnant which I know for a fact I m not because I do a pregnancy test every time I get my period. My boyfriend thinks I m beautiful and I love him but I can t see what he sees. When I was in high school I was a size 2 and had amazing abs from sports. Now I m in college and I don t do sports anymore and running and exercise makes me feel fatter and more depressed. I suffer from some mental illness I haven t seen a psychiatrist in a year or a therapist since the beginning of the summer and I don t want to take pills or see a doctor as they don t help. I wish I wasn t 160 pounds. I want yo be a hundred pounds. I haven t eaten in almost a week and I m losing some weight but it s not going fast enough. I don t plan to eat again anytime soon. i don t like food anymore and everything tastes like nothing when I was eating. I don t care about anything and nothing is fun to me anymore.

    I m a 22 year old girl living with my parents and commuting to a university. I m a film major and my favorite film genre is horror for different reasons...however I also love romantic comedies, action films, fantasy epics, crime movies, dramas, anime, foreign films, the classics-you get the picture. I love horror because I think it touches every one of your emotions and there is so much more room for opportunity in filmography, costume, and "movie magic". I m not really into gory horror, I much prefer more along the lines of supernatural where there is a story line and strong characterization. I like films that I can analyze and question and learn more about. I love the theatrical parts of horror. My mom doesn t seem to understand it and is told my sister that she thinks I m homicidal and that it s hurting my mental condition. I was watching American horror story in my room and she bursts into my room and demmsbds to know what I m watching. I paused it and told her I was watching ahs. She ordered me to let her see it like she wanted to monitor me or something. She watched about 20 seconds of dialogue befor walking away without saying a word. Later when she passed my room she said in a really judgements tone I hope you don t get nightmares . It really upset me. I just don t know what to make of it or what to tell her. We don t get along otherwise and her words really hurt a lot.

I'm not able to do sports anymore and have grown to actually dread exercise. I know there is no "quick fix" or "magic pill" to make this all better, but I wanted to be a little more knowledgeable and organized about this....can anyone give me any advice or tips about developing and sticking to a weight loss plan? Thanks guys!

Does that sound like an eating disorder? is this normal?

    I've been diagnosed with major depressive disorder ADHD and generalized anxiety disorder. I self harm. I get panic attacks. I starve myself as punishment. I have homicidal thoughts. I have paranoid thoughts that I know are irrational to other people but they somehow make sense to me and are true to me. I have low self esteem and my self worth only comes from the approval of other people. I'm a perfectionist, a shopping addict, a makeup addict, and a sex addict. I don't know what to do with these things because its messing up my whole life. There are three therapists in my area, one I can't afford, the others didn't help. I've had several suicide attempts and I might make another one. Idk what to do anymore everhthings feels hopeless and pointless to me.

I hate being single. In fact, I can't stand it. I'm going to sound completely insane and maybe i really am but I've worked obsesively trying to make myself into the most perfect woman that almost any man would want. I look at baby magazines. I try on my mom's wedding dress and wear it around the house. All I want to do is please my man and raise children. It's all i think about, im obsesed. There's no other option for me. that's my dream. But I've never gotten one guy to ever like me back. We date for a while, then when things get more serious they say they aren't ready and leave. I dream about shopping for a wedding gown. I dream about being pregnant, growing old with my husband and watching our kids grow. I imagine wearing a pretty dress and serving him his breakfast and he kisses my cheek and tells me how much he loves me. My childhood dog died. The babies I used to babysit for are grown and going to school. And no guy has even shown me interest. I cry every night. All my friends are in relationships and they spend so much time with each other that they barely spend any time with their single friends, including me. I don't want to be single, I don't see anything positive or happy about it. I'm lonely and sad and miserable as hell. What am I going to do? I'm 21 years old and in college

I try to comfort him and try to get him to talk to me but he either shuts down and storms off or bursts into tears and hug me. it hurts me to see him like that, but i dont know what to do when he gets like this. he scares me sometimes, once he jumped out aa window to commit suicide and i had to take him to the hospital. when hes happy, life is good and normal. when hes angry all hell breaks loose. what do i do about this? my mental state is for the most part good..so is his he just needs to find a way to curb his emotions. help please.
