  • Depression and Relationships

    I am in my mid twenties and I’ve had reoccurring bouts of depression for the last 6 years or so. Meds haven’t worked for me but my bouts seem to come and go – a few months of bad, a while of good, then worse again, and so on. Anyway, I’ve had a ...

  • Grossed out at the table and eating alone - should I be getting help?

    I have a problem watching other people eat unclean food. I try to eat very clean and my health has benefited greatly since I switched off all processed foods and non grass fed beef. Basically I only eat organic fruits and veggies, whole grains, ...

  • Should I set boundaries with my friends if I risk not having any?

    If my only friend in the world does not respect my boundaries is it better to live with it or to stop it and then have no friends at all? I can’t decide which is better or which is worse. Sometimes it feels nice to have someone who calls me on the ...

  • Is it just me, or should I fire my therapist?

  • Social anxiety has me tongue tied

    I can debate digital foes to the ground, in real time, but in person I get tongue tied and my mind goes literally blank. How can I retain my wits in real-life social debate situations?

  • How do I remind myself to be mindful when I lose my focus?

    I deal with unhappiness and dissatisfaction. How can I remember to be mindful in life? I believe in the idea of how important it is to not sweat the small stuff and to live life in the here and now but I invariably forget to do this as soon as I get ...

  • Am I clinically depressed or have I just been in a really bad mood all my life?

    I am an unhappy person. I spend more time each day generally feeling unhappy than happy. This is how I have always been. Does this mean I have depression? Is depression exactly the same thing as unhappiness or are they somehow different? I am a ...
