I want to hear about your problems and help the best I can. Let's help each other with some support and give tips to each other if you think you know a solution to someone's problem. It may be hard, but we can help make things easier!

#1

I don't know how anyone can help, but I don't have enough time for everything that I want to do. And I don't want to do, like, everything that there is to do; managing all of the responsibilities that I currently have is hard enough.

In short, my problem is that being an adult sucks and drains so much energy out of me, and it seems like there's no escape from this. Perhaps one day I'll get used to it. As of now, it's a problem.

I have been bullied for a year straight, become depressed like hell, pretending I’m fine but IM NOT FINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! People suggest I go to a therapist but I don’t want to be treated like a crazy person. I try just about everything to fix it and I can’t.COVID also adds to depression because my best friend is now untalkable to because I don’t have his phone number. I feel like I’m not good enough and my dream of being an astronaut is shot.I have a phobia of death and I’m stressed as hell due to homework ( I have like 15 assignments in a single subject to do by the end of the week). I have ADHD, and I’m kind of overweight and my brother is a brat and I feel like he is favored. AND I have insomnia causing me to fall asleep in class. That’s like just half of it all and I don’t know the other half.

First of all, I know exactly how you feel, I have been bullied my whole life and I have been through depression. I also don't want to be treated like a crazy person. What I did was I didn't go to a therapist I went to my sister instead, because she was always there for me I felt better. I hope you start to feel better, if you are an only child then TALK to YOUR parents... <3

I get stressed very easily and my parents just make it worse for me. so I get distracted easily and tend to not do my school work. I do get it done but just later when I am not at school. my parents are incredibly strict and when I don't do all my work at school and instead do it at home they get on to me and then I can't even do my work at home because they are yelling at me when I'm trying to work. they don't know this but all of the stress they have given me has also given me depression. on a bad day, I will not go to bed and I will just sit and cry at night. sometimes I will even take an electric razor blade and scratch my arms with it. everyone thinks of me as the happy kid but sometimes I just want to cry. I feel like I put on a mask every day. I put on an act that says that I am fine when I am not. I just want someone to listen to me and understand me. I feel empty. I feel like I should just act like a robot and not do anything that makes me happy and more because apparently, my parents hate when I am happy or do something that I actually like to do. they never ask me what's wrong they just ask what did I do now.

I have to juggle school in with personal life
I am kind of addicted to Bored Panda (hehe)
I may have anxiety
I'm trying to learn french (I'm not doing very well though)
I'm trying to get smarter (I already am pretty bright, I just want to know as much as I can)
I looooooove reading and I want to read more
I have a missing assignment in math that is really bothering me because it will take a looong time
I have a math test tomorrow and I haven't studied
There's this boy that I'm friends with but he likes me and I've made it clear that I just want to be friends but I think he still secretly likes me
I don't have very many clothes
My parents fight a lot and I think my mom might be thinking about getting a divorce
I have 4 siblings all under the age of 4 and that's a bit overwhelming
I am really trying to be kind and as nice to people as I can, but it's kind of hard
I'm really confused about everything right now (I'm at that age where people say that you'll be confused {adolescent/teen} and let me tell you children, it is 100% real)
I just want to be happy
I don't have a whole lot of friends and I want to make more but I'm kind of weird so I sort of annoy people
I miss my best friend (@PanSloth) soooo much
There is a boy I really like but he's in a different grade at a different school so I don't know if he already likes someone or not
I have many, many more. So yeah, I just named a few. Sorry to dump all that on you guys. Thanks : )

It's hard for me to properly motivate myself right now, I try to get up at 6:15 am but instead get up around 7:45-8:00am. I also planned to start an online store later this month but I can't find any proper time to work on my stock with school and everything else. I honestly hate procrastinating but I'm not sure what to do.

Try getting up when you need to, but not when you want to. It also helps to quit caffeine after 6pm, and go to bed between 9 and 10 hours before you have to get up. Plan one week, from getting out of bed, to going to bed, and everything in between, every day. It'll be hard in the beginning, but if you follow your own schedule, you'll get better at it, might even do some chores faster because they become a routine, and it'll help you to get more rest, en more control of your day/week. Don't forget to reward yourself from time to time with things you don't need to do, but want to do. Use the rewards as motivators to keep planning, and you'll find you'll start to procastinate the procastination alone, instead of all the wants and needs

Yes, lots of people hate other people. Mostly they hate those who are different from themselves--though that is not always the case. There are also many who hate those who are exactly like themselves in some way that they are trying to hide from. In truth, I don't think we can rationally comprehend hate. It is so profound. (BTW there is no evidence that black people where in the Americas prior to white people. But Native Americans are thought to have come from Asia when the Bering Straight was still a land bridge.)

I have lots of problems, but only one is killing me. Okay, so, I'm in a long-distance relationship with my boyfriend.

Before he stopped talking to me, he said he had food poisoning and that he was okay. And he stopped coming online... It's been like a week! Yes, I know he could be grounded or taking a break from the internet, but after what he said about death and food poisoning, I can't help but be scared ): now I have all sorts of fears, like what if he's in the hospital and dying?

Medication can take up to 3 months to be fully effective. Yes it can start showing signs of working a week or three from starting it but it can take 3 months for antidepressants and antianxiety meds. If you've been on it that long and you're getting nothing you need it adjusted.

This might be a bit of a long one, as I have MANY problems.

Where to start? Um, my mom died 5 years ago, and my dad didn't want us. No one else in my family even wanted my siblings and me. I never told anyone that bothers me, but it does. One of my aunts fought for us and eventually adopted us as our legal guardian/parent. I love her, I really do, but she always turns everything into a Godly moment. I'll tell her a joke and a few seconds later I'm standing in front of her, listening to her lecture me about "not praying enough", or, "praying empty prayers". It's so annoying.

Problem #2
My sister doesn't talk to me. She brushes it off when I ACCIDENTALLY nudge her. She'll get squirmy and weird when I tell her I love her, which is rare because she's just gonna do that. She treats her friends better than she treats me and she hugs her friends. She's hasn't hugged me for 11 years. Well, not that I can remember.

Problem#3
I have been best friends with this girl Lexi since first grade. She has gay dads and she's bisexual. I have 2 other gay friends, 3 lesbian friends, and a couple of other bisexual friends. My parent is fine with me being best friends, with her, but she doesn't know that I have LGBTQ+ friends. I'm scared to tell her. She's not homophobic, and I'm DEFINITELY NOT, but I'm scared to tell her because she might not let me be friends with Lexi anymore.

Problem#4
Lexi, my friend, is one of the best friends I've ever had. But, when I did go over to her house, she never listened to me. She never wants to do what I wanna do. Now, don't get me wrong, I know it's her house, but I've been her best friend for a while. Can't she, you know, show some respect?

Problem#5
I'm insecure. I feel like I'm fat. I want to lose weight, so I drink at least 4 (maybe a bit more). I haven't lost weight, so I drink more and more. Well, I recently went to the hospital for a checkup. One of my blood tests came back, and basically, I'm on the verge of getting diabetes. I'm scared. But it sucks because I'm afraid to go to my aunt for help.

Problem#5
I feel like my aunt isn't proud of me. TBH, I'm very proud of myself either. I miss my mom a lot. The thing my sister and my aunt don't know is that I cry myself to sleep some nights. I'm sometimes afraid to talk to her about anything, in fear I'll disappoint her, or make her mad, or get a lecture I don't eve need. She doesn't let me be a child. I want to have fun while I'm still younger. I feel sorta bad for typing this, as she's in the room next to me. I have to go now because my class starts at 7:50. Thanks for reading it.

You've been through a lot. Like A LOT! If u think u aunt won't allow you to see your friend if she knows, don't tell her. Its not a given that everyone has to know about someone's sexuality . Some sisters don't hug their own sister. They love them differently than friends, don't worry she loves you. It may be that hugging you would be TOO vulnerable. Keep going young one,I wish you the best. You will be ok. Sending hugs.

I have a teacher in high school that sucks. He’s a nice person, he just sucks as a teacher. He has no teaching experience for the class because our old teacher got fired for budget cuts (my school only puts funds in sports), so he was hired to be in her place. He went from not giving a crap about us and being more focused on his other class, to (now on online school) assigning us sooo many assignments. In my other classes, (I only have 4) I have 20 assignments in one class, 17 in another, and 15 in the last one. In the class with the bad teacher, he has assigned 49 assignments!! In only 2 months!! And they all take forever to do and it’s all super overwhelming. I tried telling him that he’s assigning too much but it’s all just excuses, excuses, no solutions. This class went from a get-away from life to having life being a get-away from this class. Does anyone have any advise on what I can do to deal with him/his assignments?

Talk to him. Send him an email, call him, text him, whatever. Tell him how you are feeling and what would help. He may not know that it is giving you trouble. If that doesn't help, try asking him if you can combine two assignments, or do assignments in ways you find fun. And just smile.

I don't even know where to start but first of all, I have a horrible relationship with my mom. She emotionally abuses me by calling me names, telling me to shut up, and she once threatened to throw a glass on my head but she said she "wouldn't do that because she doesn't want to go to jail" I have so many emotional problems because of her, but I can't tell anyone or get away from her (I'm 12). I feel really horrible because she's my mom, but I don't know what to do. I'm also bi/leaning more towards girls, and don't know how to tell my parents (well, just my stepdad, really) I keep saying I'll tell them when I'm older, but I can't stand those awkward moments where they ask me about boys. I would really appreciate some advice from fellow pandas.

Honestly, if you're 12 and bi, and you have an abusive mother, I wouldn't tell her. If she's that abusive she doesn't deserve to know you more than she does. Sounds like she'd use it against you and make you feel bad about it. Sometimes when ppl treat us badly and we can't get away from them the best thing we can do is not give them any more ammunition. Think of it this way, if this was anyone else in your life, would you tell them something you like about yourself,knowing they will harm you with it? Just because she's your mom, that doesn't mean she's entitled to your every thought or emotion. Maybe someday she will be different and deserving of knowing you more. But for now, it sounds like your better off with a happy secret. That goes for anything you choose not to share with her.

So, in other words, I get bullied and shunned because I'm different. Also, forgot to mention that I frequently get called a witch because I have a large nose, and I used to get teased for reading, writing, and doing math at an advanced level. And my parents refuse to accept anything other than almost perfection. If I don't do something really well they accuse me of slacking off, or not trying as hard as I could. They don't understand that I make mistakes sometimes, or that no one can do anything perfectly 100% of the time.

My missus has been going through the menopause for over 6 years now. I know that it is not her fault but it is doing my head in. When i am on my way home from work it terrifies me what mood she is going to be in. I know that she is a nice person but when she has her moods on it is very distressing. I try to stay silent and not argue with her but sometimes it gets to a point that i verbally explode and then the neighbors call the police then i get arrested. I feel bad after and go and sit in another room but she follows me around. She also refuses to get medical help for this as she says it has side effects. I have spoken to female colleagues about this and they give advice and recommendations but she still refuses.

That may not seem like the case, but I promise, things will get better. You just need to hang in there, and I know that it is easier said than done, but you will get through this. I think you are so incredibly strong, so keep fighting. Reach out to people. You don't have to keep up that mask, because although it may feel like you do, there will always be people who love you for YOU. The true you. Who makes mistakes. Who maybe doesn't feel like they are worth enough. But know that you are, you are worthy enough. I hope everything gets better, I really do. Your parents, if they are good parents, will be okay with you having ADHD and take you for tests, I wish you luck and I hope everything gets better.

the fact i can't see them - it's eating me up inside. i have no siblings, so the only people i interact with face to face are my parents. i love them - but i'm getting sick of being around them 24/7. i stay up at night just so i can have some time away from them, not have them constantly want to do things with me when all i want to do is curl up and read a book or cry. i cry myself to sleep way too often these days. i don't cry in front of my parents, i don't tell them all of this, and they can't tell. if i did they would constantly be worrying about me, asking me if i'm ok. I'M NOT! i'm just trying to get through the day and not burst into tears.

I haven't seen my mom since February. Her nursing home locked down and I wasn't able to celebrate her 60th birthday with her. Stress is a major issue I've always had. I have stressed out my system so badly that I now have a chronic hive condition. I finally broke down and got a medical alert bracelet that I call my 'I don't wanna die' band.

Everyone is suffering hard core with depression because of COVID, personal reasons, and seasonal Depression has started for my area of the world. I'm the boss so I have to stay strong of my people and my work site that I'm stressing out more. Enforcing Covid precautions is easier where I'm at but we've still had a few instances of not wanting to wear a mask.

I'm pissed about some stuff too but that frustration is coming from the depression and the stress. I'm fully aware I have control issues so the lack of control and being able to do even basic things is hitting me hard.

As a general rule I'm a pretty grounded individual. I know the root of a lot of my issues and I've been debating going back into therapy just to get some of this crap off my back but I wound up being more of a therapist to my last three and I'm not at a place right now where I want to spend the time it will take to find someone who won't be like that with me.

Lastly I'm just tired. I've been single the majority of my adult life and I'm tired of hearing that I'm intimidating, or I should dumb myself down for others. I'm tired of Covid, I'm tired of stress, I miss seeing my sister almost every week, and I'm just tired in general. Yes I know it's the depression, it's also a side effect of the antihistamine's I take for the chronic Hives and the sleeping pills I take for the chronic Insomnia but I'm still tired and it sucks.

I hear you. First, let me say "thank you" to you--for being a leader and caring, responsible person. Taking on this role *is* tiring. Just because you are the "boss" doesn't mean you can't take a day off sometimes. Maybe you could give yourself a three-day weekend sometime? Also, I know about chronic sleep problems from experience, and taking over-the-counter sleeping pills on any long term basis is usually a bad idea (they say). Have you tried something more natural, like melatonin? Hey it is just a suggestion. Also a warm bath before bed, and some hot milk. You need to give yourself a break, though, I think. So you can sleep for a couple of days straight. Anyways, I am sorry that you are so isolated from your family. I have that too. And it is very rough. I call my mother as much as I can. Sometimes we just spend a whole call on making sarcastic comments about other people! It really helps us both blow off some steam. I hope things calm down a bit for you sometime soon.

It’s just... let’s say I’m obviously a equestrian. I am very traumatized by something that happened to me though. Me and a friend were driving a pony and the back wheel scraped across a fence post and the horse went galloping away with us... I was not super badly hurt and my friend was fine. The horse slammed me into a fence and galloped into the stables. I was fine but my back hurt a bit... they called the ambulance... I was fine though with some cuts and bruises... I got off lucky however my friend did not even have a scratch! I’m fine I’m just scared. I keep having anxiety attacks and I think about it at night and can’t sleep. Help!

1. 3 and a half years ago daughter shattered her knee when she was 7, took a leave from my job to take care of her

2. 3 years ago my fathers tumors stared winning the battle, had to quit another job to take care of him as he was not mobile (feeding, washing, diapers etc).

3. 1 year ago (in 2 weeks) my father died. even though it really hurt at least i could spend more time with my wife and kid and get a job so we can get out of the hole we were in due to last 3,5 years of me not working (some odd jobs along the way but these dont really count.)

4. worked for 3 months before Covid took it away.

5. an earthquake severely damaged our apartment, somehow managed to fix it enough to live in it.

6. wife developed ptsd from the shock, still has a breakdown 5 times a week

7. flood finished the earthquakes job. literally left us with 6 nylon bags of belongings.

there is more but i think this will suffice

This sounds so difficult, Tomislav. The world has piled up a lot of things onto your shoulders. It sounds like you have been living in crisis mode for a long time, and that is very stressful. It can really wear a person down. My mother always reminds me of something they tell people on airplanes: "In case the cabin loses air pressure, put on your oxygen mask first, before helping someone else with theirs." You cannot be of help to your loved ones if you are not taking care of yourself first. OK? So that is your first item. Ask yourself what you need in order to become strong and stable. Then pursue this first. One piece at a time. A little bit every day. Strengthen yourself. Then you will be able to help your wife and child. You can do this. Take a slow deep breath.

I'm 45 and debt has crippled me. Every month the people i owe money to get paid directly out of my wages leaving me barely enough to pay my rent. Most mnths I have to get my mum to buy my food or electric. I work more than 80 hours a week and it seems like I havent made any progress getting them paid off. I suffer from anxiety, depression, copd and severe panic attacks on top and I just feel like why do i fucking bother trying. I see the people I went to school with living full lives and raising families while I am on my own getting nowhere. I dont trust many people after being bullied the entire way through school, and then about 10 years ago i attacked in my own house by 2 thugs with knives over a case of mistaken identity but I'm the one that suffered for it. One of them has now been moved 3 houses away from me and when I complained to the landlord they said tough luck so now I see the guy that held me at knife point for over an hour every fucking day and its all I can do to not attack him and let him know just how terrifying it is. I cant afford to move because of my debts and going to the police will just make things worse. I just feel like trying to spend my life helping people has been a waste of time but helping people is all I have to make me feel good about myself.

sooo...
I´m not sure that I should even share this, but i mean I've never really talked about it before, why not tell a bunch of strangers I've known from the internet the past 2-ish years now (jk)

um so not to brag, but I'm a pretty good student. I have almost all a's (one b and I'm THIS close to getting it back up to an a) but like, even though my father has SEEN my grades, sees how hard I work, he still thinks that I'm a slacker or some kind of failure. I take school extremely seriously, but there's still the constant "well maybe if you cared as much about school work as you did (insert random shit I took a slight interest in) maybe you wouldn't be such a (insert random insult). It's not just the lack of recognition, which, yeah, I admit, is attention seeking and selfish, but like, when my father found out my little brother had all a's, he almost literally threw a party. like, he let my brother have a sleepover and he got him a new expensive lego set and all that stupid crap, but when I told my father I had all a's he was just like "ok cool." didn't even give a shit.

And I know it just seems like "oh, another stupid privileged girl who thinks she has problems" and yeah, I honestly don have it as bad as you guys, but still, there's more I just want to get off my chest.

My dad has been working at nike since I was four, he's coming up on ten years now, and they're creating a new system and people are losing their jobs. my dad might lose his, and he's been really stressed about it, and he's been taking it out on me. I mean, don get me wrong, we're gonna be fine, he has a high level job there and makes good money, so we have a lot in savings, and he's built up a fantastic resume, but we're still understandably nervous, most of all dad. He channels his stress into anger, which he then takes out on me. he took my phone and yelled at me for a while because I woke up ten minutes late. or he told me to make sure that I was having enough for lunch and I told him "don worry, I have plenty" and then proceeded to yell at me about how I constantly argued.
and he's constantly nit-picking, like he's practically put me under a microscope. when I take care of a new problem he finds another thing to be dissapointed in.
like, he thinks I should work out more, because apparently " I'm not in the best shape" I'm 5'4, and 105 pounds. this isn't insane for a fourteen year old, in fact, I'm still technically underweight. I work out everyday as well, yet he still wants me to work harder, do more, be unhappy with myself because who I am right now isn't good enough. that was just one example of many.

welp anyway that was enough complaining for one day, and no one wants to hear about it so everyone have a great day and I hope you all feel better.

I'm almost 70, disabled and widowed. I take care of a 70 yo autistic man who just had a stroke, a disabled 62 yo lady who is finally starting to use her legs again, 3 adult cats more dependant on me than my 4 elderly dogs ( in HUMAN years: 24, 16, 14, 12 ) 2 of whom are deaf and blind.
Then there's the 47 yo house itself, both inside and outside maintenance required to just keep up! No one to call to even help pick up leaves, or repair the roof that's leaking.
My problem is what happens to all these dependents when my mind finally snaps? I'm already showing signs of memory loss and dementia, and have a very rare form of MS, so some days are better than others.
I don't have anyone to call to take me to and bring me from the hospital for an operation I've put off having, as there's no one to care for me if I'm laid up for the days I'd need to recuperate.
I live in a rural area with scant access to medical or social assistance. It's taken me longer to write this as I'm losing the use of my right hand.
My resources are also minimal, as my income is limited to Social Security and food stamps.
Other than that, I'm doing fairly well!

I have a mother who is hypocritical and kind of mean. She yells at me about not doing something that she didn't even tell me to do, then makes excuses about stress. For example. Her: "Can you unload the dishwasher? I'll reload." Me narrowing my eyes because she'll add stuff on to "unloading the dishwasher" in her head: "Yeaaaaaaah." Her snapping fingers at me: NOW. Later..... Me: I did it, it's your turn." Her, whips around and glares at me because she thought I wouldn't do it: "Are you sure?" Me: Yep! Her, folding her arms: "Check again, use your eyes." Me, looking into the dishwasher: "I unloaded the dishwasher." Her: "No, no you did not." Me, looking at her like "are we seeing the same dishwasher?!?!?!?" Her, pointing to the top of the dishwasher (a counter where we put dishes to dry on a rack): "You didn't clear the top!!!!" Me, throwing up my hands: "You said dishwasher! DISH-WASHER, not DISHES on top of sink, DISH-WASHER." Her, glaring at me: "Listen, I don't know if this is one of your auditory processing disorders (aka she literally took me to a doctor to see if I was deaf since I didn't hop to like a jackrabbit when she screams at me), but I clearly said dishwasher, that includes the top." Me internally screaming because the ONE TIME she unloaded the dishwasher she didn't even finish it, AND LEFT THE TOP RACK AND COUNTER FOR ME TO DO: "I've done the dishwasher a lot, Mom. Every single time I've done it, it's dishwasher only. Not the dry dishes on top." Her, getting worked up reaaaaaaal fast, "You'll do the dishes on top AND the dishes in the sink or go to bed early without dinner!" Me, who has put up with this crap for a while: "Fine, I'm done." Her, pausing as she fumes: .... Me internally: "VIVA LA RESISTANCE, MAMI!" Her, yelling now: "You're going to do the dishes or I'll take your laptop and school things and suspend you from classes!" Time out from this dramatic dialogue. I'm doing online learning, so I need my laptop. I also use it to write my book. It's also my connection to my friends and my sisters who are away. This is not okay, since she yells about my grades and she would probably lose my laptop. Me, glaring at her: "Fine." Her: huffs and sticks her AirPods back in, blasting some stupid worship song (worship music can be good, but dang, this was the bad stuff). Sorry for the long post, but she's literally why I learned to flip people off. (I did get the satisfaction of pretending like I forgave her, sweetly bringing out coffee that I spat in and muttered "It's a damn dishwasher, not an uprising, Mom.") (Yeah, I do swear occasionally, because Hell is very real and this had a situation that required it) I read in a book somewhere that if you do really simple annoying things to someone who's mean to you over time, they'll subconsciously avoid you. So far, it's spitting in coffee and getting up obscenely early so she'll always hear me humming "My way" as she works out in the garage. I've also occasionally pulled the I'll forgive you because I'm nice like that card. Overall, she's pretty nice, you just have to hop to and read her mind before she either: a)Has a screaming match b)Stomps off and throws up her hands c)gives the blissful silent treatment. I suppose I'm being a little unkind with the spitting in coffee over a dishwasher thing, but it's happened before, and I always get the giggles when she frowns at the milk foam on top. Anyways, ta-ta!

I'm so stressed right now I can't focus on my school work so I end up not submitting some and that makes me stressed and it's just a cycle. I kept procrastinating about it. My hair is literally going white from the stress, I always want to throw up, my head hurts. I'm pretty sure I had a fever yesterday and the day before. My sleep schedule is so messed up I can't sleep until like 11 pm at least and 2 am at most. And I'll always wake up at 6 because we have online classes that start at 7 am Monday to Friday. I sometimes can't take naps because my sister would hit me so I would just help her with her own school work (read: do her school work) and if I don't help her I'm the one at fault. I'm so stressed I ended up making a plan on what to do IF I'm going to commit suicide the other day, then dreamt of following through with it yesterday. Had a continuation of that dream when I napped just this afternoon. I don't know what I'll do now and I'm scared on what's going to happen in the future, I know I'd either die before 18 or move to another country as soon as I can.

Try locking your door when you work/ sleep. Tell your sister how you feel. It's okay to be scared. I mean, you'd have to be nuts not to be now. But the future is the future. You should just try and make it the best one. And most importantly, leave yourself some time. You're important. Paint your nails and feel like class. Try styling your hair in really weird/ fancy ways. Make some nutty but possibly delicious drink/ food.

Yes, i work and my dear is unemployed, yes, we dont have money for some things that people considered as "normal, regular", but, i don't care anymore for material stuff. I would like to be able soon to start painting and drawing again. To overcome some blockages. Otherwise, now i'm sure that i'm blessed and happy with good people in my life.

Well I kind of feel the same as you do. Sometimes things aren't always so bad in your life when you see others pain.

All of these are about school. 1.) Covid-19 means Blended learning. If you don't know, It's not great. 2.) I can't reach my friend because a. our school district divided up the school buildings into where in the district you live. b. she gave me her phone number over Google Hangouts, but then our school district disabled it. 3.) I'm drowning in school work. As previously mentioned, I don't like blended learning.

I recently went to the doctors with my mother and I finally spoke up about how I actually feel, The doctor didn't give me much help since my mom said most therapy classes aren't covered by our insurance and she basically left me with no help. All the doctor said was to return back to her if I get worse and she will give me pills of some sort.

Working from home feels like always working, yet still falling behind on hours somehow. When I force myself to take a break or even when I'm done for the week I have the overwhelming feeling that I should be working.

My parents and brother are super obsessed with one of the candidates in the US election and are not happy that my sister and I don't support him. I actually got screamed at and cussed at for half an hour in January when I changed my mind about voting for that person. It's only gotten worse since then and both my sister and I are afraid that we'll get kicked out if it comes out that we voted against their candidate, so we both lied about voting. I voted early and she's skipping morning classes if she needs to, in order to vote. I'm student teaching and not getting paid, so if I get kicked out, I'm massively screwed and she had to take out a loan for a car. If she has to drop out, she's worried that she'll never get out of the house.
I'm also scared because I'm having, like, 3 medical issues at once. With Roe vs. Wade possibly getting repealed this week, I could lose access to birth control, which I'm taking for a medical issue. Also, this past summer, I had a large cyst removed from my uterus, but now the pain is back in the same area and worse than before, but because I'm student teaching, I can't go get it checked out. I'm just really worried that it's something really bad. And then, on top of all of that, Republicans are trying to take away anti-discrimination laws for people with pre-existing conditions, which I have. This would mean that insurance companies can refuse to cover me and with the cost of healthcare in the US, I'd be royally screwed and I may never be able to find out what's wrong without indebting myself for the rest of my life. I mean, the surgery back in August cost $30,000 before insurance paid. Who knows what the cost would be to find out what's actually wrong with my uterine area? Definitely more than that.

when people knock on my door to get my vote i just tell them "oh yeah i already vote for you" that soon gets rid of them. just agree with your brother but dont get too deeply involved in the conversation. you can still secretly vote for who you want to vote. I dont do politics my self. If i do have to vote i vote for green peace.

I have a really hard paying attention in class meaning im behind on work. I had a speech yesterday and I didnt even write it in the 3-4 weeks we had to do it. I have and essay in english and i'm already behind. My mom takes my phone but im used to not having it so it's not a punishment for me. Any tips on how to get better at this? I use a planner and it still doesn't work. :(

I feel you! It's like, you push aside that something, and it's like "WASSUP" right at the deadline. I usually try to force myself to do it when it first gets assigned and try to put myself in the zone. Then, it all flows naturally! Hope this helps.

This is probably gonna sound dumb, but it’s been bothering me for like a YEAR now.

The Wings of Fire dragons are so out of wack and have incorrect anatomy.

Let me explain.

The dragons have four legs AND wings. This is cannot happen as there’s no vertebrate species with six limbs, unless it’s a genetic mutation, but it’s GENETIC, which means there’s a chance it won’t happen?? You can carry something without actually having it.

Then there’s the ears. Every single dragon species in this book series has ear flaps. This is literally impossible, as they’re probably archosaurs (crocodiles and birds) and none of those have ear flaps. Whyyyyyy?

And THEN there’s the problem with IceWings (dragon species). They’re reptiles. IceWings live on the arctic tundra. Where it is always snowing. They have scales. SCALES. they’d literally FREEZE TO DEATH because reptiles are COLD BLOODED!!!

There could be a solution to that though; let’s assume dragons are theropods. Theropoda is a dinosaur clade which includes birds. Birds are warm-blooded reptiles (yes, birds are reptiles) but even if they’re warm blooded they NEED feathers to survive!!

I could go on and on about why the author of these books needs to research biology but it’d take up an entire dictionary. So I’ll leave it here.

Middle earth dragons (think Smaug) have different genes and a different anatomy than earth dragons.

Nothing I do is ever good enough for my mom and step-dad. I haven't had a phone in almost a year and every time I'm about to get one they decide that one small detail prevents me from getting one. I have to use my school laptop for everything. My biological dad has field for custody and my mom hasn't been telling me she loves me before I go to bed. School work has been stressing me out because I'm help to all A standards.When I told them I was bi (turn out I'm pan)they said I wasn't allowed to be gay under their roof and that I wasn't allowed to flaunt it. I thought it was getting better but this past weekend proved that it wasn't. The only outlet I have is my therapist but sometimes I cant even tell her what is going on because my mom has her claws so deep into everything

Speak up! Tell your therapist, and ask her not to tell your mom. Tell trusted teachers. Be you! YOU are special. YOU are unique. You are beautiful as you. No matter what happens, remember that you are loved. Smile.

Well, I am trying to figure out if I have anxiety. I think I have some sort of social anxiety (as mild as it may be), because being with big crowds makes me extremely nervous, but then this just came up out of nowhere: I usually walk to the luchroom with my friends. Today, I walked to the lunchroom by myself since I had to stay behind and clean up the gym (We had just finished up PE). So I buy my lunch and I go check outside (we usually sit outside on the patio). It was really wet so I assumed they had sat inside. I walked around for about 10 minutes trying to find them. I couldn't and I started to panic. It was a stupid thing to panic over... I mean all that had happened was that I lost sight of my friends. I started thinking if they even noticed if I was gone or if they ditched me on purporse (they didn't by the way). SO I sat at a table with a lesbian couple who didn't even acknowledge my presense (One was my friend that I had known forever who doesn't even say hi to me anymore :'( ). I was still panicking, and felt like I wanted to cry, and my hands were kinda shaky. I KNOW it was stupid to be worried over something as small as that. But eventually my friends found me and all was well. Aparently they had gone looking for me after I hadn't shown up after awhile (they did dit outside and had wet butts, so, suckers, am I right?). I honestly DON'T know what that was. That has happened before, but NOTHING like that. Anyways there's my problems.

Sounds like you were anxious about being alone. Many people who feel like they need others to give them guidance or a sense of direction and meaning often have this anxiety.

I think I’m depressed and I don’t know why. I’m early in a good mood and I get sad for no reason or for a tiny reason a lot. I don’t want to tell my parents because they will probably just say it’s puberty. That might be it but I also have a crush on this girl (I’m a girl) and if they talk about puberty I’m worried they may ask me if I have any crushes and I’m not ready to come out to them yet. I don’t know what to do I’m having a hard time staying positive and playing video games does cheer me up but my mom always says I’m spending to much time on a screen. What do I do?

A part of it is probably puberty, which is entirely normal, but you could also be having depression issues that aren't normal. Finding your own sexuality and being worried about coming out to them will make any of the depression issues worse. If you think they'll actually listen then sit down with them and tell them I don't want to hear just puberty as an answer, here's what's going on with me. I know you're concerned you'll get the 'its puberty's answer thats why you start off with 'i know puberty's a thing but this feels so much worse/more intense/please keep a mind open to more than hormones'. You come out when you're ready and not before, if they ask about a crush just shrug it off and say that's not the entire problem. You're Mom will always worry about screen time. It's mothering at it's finest, let them know that makes you happy but be aware you might need to make a compromise, turn to something else like crafts or reading or something else to try to keep the screen time you get
