    This was not easy at all to type. I was a happy child, until changes around 8/9 years happened and my mom had stepfather, after stepfather after stepfather, I guess all she wanted was a family she never had while growing up, and after she lost her husband at age 33, hat dream was squashed, so she met my dad 5 years later I was born, it was an abusive relationship, he never worked, he was a "man about town", so they say, so my mom hid the truth of who my real father was, until I was around....

    Medical Marijuana for Bipolar and Anxiety.

    So I’ve been thinking about alternatives for pharmaceuticals for bipolar and anxiety and I came across something about medical marijuana for depression and anxiety. Most of my bipolar episodes are depressive episodes, so I was wondering if people with bipolar and anxiety are eligible for medical marijuana. I’ve done quite a bit of studying on it and the results of my research haven’t helped me find out anything. So if you could help answer my questions, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Case of Truman Show delusion - please help.

    This past May, my mother has what we 100% think is the Truman Show delusion. She thinks that we are on a reality television show, and that we are under house arrest, even though we have proved to her multiple times that this is an illusion. She refuses to receive medical help because she thinks that there is nothing wrong with her. She quit her job thinking that she is the wealthiest person alive, and because of this, we need to sell our house, however she refuses to sign. We also think she is bipolar....

    Support Groups?

    Hi... I am a 20 year old college student and I was wondering if anyone knew of any Free, Online support groups? I have really bad depression and I have anxiety and I already have started seeing a new psychiatrist. I also take medicine for depression as well and I think that being a part of a support group and being able to just talk to people might help.

    Anxiety, Panic and Hypochondria

    I feel like my issues are very, very minor compared to most people. I have a lot to be grateful for and I try to remember that. I have been relying on xanax for the last month or so to control my hypochondria and panic. It's been overtaking my life since my younger brother died. I have a strong family history of mental illness (depression and anxiety) and I have tried so hard to get a grip on it. I don't take as much xanax as I am prescribed and I recently purchased Happy Camper supplement....

    I HATE my depressed teenage daughter

    I don’t even care about your judgment - honestly you can suck it. My teenage daughter isn’t a bad kid. But my god every single thing that comes out of her mouth is a complaint, followed by sighs, woe-is-me attitude. Not your normal teen *** either. I mean EVERY. SINGLE. THING. It is non stop morose-ness. Non stop sulking. Non stop feet dragging everywhere. Non stop ingratitude. Non stop “feel sorry for me while I do NOTHING to make my life better” Unable to just shut the *** up and stop complaining....

    Banned from seeing cousins because of ED/mental health

    I love little kids, and I have always been told that I'm really good with them. But yesterday I received an email from my Aunt saying that I can't see her kids anymore (they are 4 and 8). She said that after a weekend with me, they asked too many questions, and she does not want to expose them to my poor behavior again. I didn't realize my craziness was that obvious. For me, the weekend was one of my best - I only binged and purged once (after everyone had gone to bed), I drank but not....
