Amy Asked: Has my best friend got an anxiety problem? Please help . . .?
Okay so last night i had a sleep over at my best friend's house. When ever i am there we always find ourselves talking about all the hard things we are going through early in the morning. I'm pretty sure i have a mild anxiety disorder so i know a lot of the things to look out for. We were talking and she was telling me a few personal things and i cried to her about something and she cried to me about something. But she isn't sleeping great and i'm pretty sure like me she is always really nervous. She seems to be showing the same symptoms as me. i can deal with this things by myself but i dont think she can. I didn't tell i thought she had anxiety cause i didnt want to push it too far in one night when i had just got her to open up about stuff she hasnt talked about before. She cried a lot and i comforted her saying no matter how many things changes i would always be there and that it was ok to cry and that she needed to talk to me more. But now i'm really not sure where to go from there. I'm a bit stuck as to how to deal with us both. I know she doesnt need counselling cause thats what i want to be when i am older. But i need a way to get her to talk to me more often. Any ideas? I would be so greatful. she means the world to me and i would put her problems before mine any day. Thank you x
Amy Asked: How do I stop being boy crazy?
I'm literarily crazy about guys… I don't know whats wrong with me, because I'm 18, I should be grown up enough to not have wild hormones or anything else like that but its worse. I watch shows just for hot guys, I draw guys, I listen to mostly male singers, I am constantly seeing cute guys everywhere and even falling for friends when I shouldn't… I don't know whats wrong with me? When will this end and how can I make it stop? Does it cause insomnia? because I think it does… I hope I'm not weird or a freak.
Amy Asked: Do I have a mental disorder? If I do what one is it?
I'm sick to death of all these feelings inside me. The ache in my head and chest, the want to hurt myself, the anxiety, the sadness…at nights sometimes I spend hour just crying over what appears to be absolutely nothing. But sometimes I am happy and confident, although it tends to be short lived.
I have tried so many personality/ mental health tests and none of them can seem to make their minds up. I don't know who to turn to any more, as the counsellor I was seeing gave it away that I was seeing her to my mum, so I don't trust her. The teacher I was talking to has stopped teaching me now (new year..new lessons..) and I cant go and talk to her because when I did it was almost obsessive how I went to see her most days.
Don't say talk to my parents/ siblings or other family. The last time the found out I was self harming and through out the entire 3 years I was with a class who bullied me, they were continuously worried, and sometimes my mum had problems sleeping. They both have stressful jobs, and my sister doesnt make life easy for them as she has an anxiety issue and keeps going into debt at uni.
I've also confided in a few of my friends. It felt good at the time, they were kind, they gave advice and support..but now they are pretty stressed as well, and I have lied so many times recently by saying I wouldnt go back to self harm. Its also not exactly easy to bring this sort of thing up in a normal conversation.
I just want to know what's wrong with me. I don't know who to turn to. I keep thinking about a doctor, but I'm not sure how far they can keep my confidentiality (i'm 17) I just don't understand myself.
Amy Asked: Scared to tell anyone?
I think I may have bipolar disorder. I am very very depressed for months on end and then it goes and I seem to feel full of life for a few months then the depression will come back and so on. Its like this all year every year. My gran has serious mental illness and has been battling with it for years so it runs in the family. I am a mother of 3 though. It doesn't affect my mothering I am a very good, devoted mother but I'm scared if I go to a doctor they will alert child services and I will have my children taken away or even being monitored is bad enough. I don't want to put myself at any risk of loosing my children and if that means not telling anyone then so be it. What can I do? I go through patches where I feel like I have no energy, I don't want to open the curtains, I just want to shut out the world, I have no friends, I hate myself, I hate being stuck in the house but at the same time can't bare the thought of going out. I cry myself to sleep most nights sometimes for no reason. When I wake up in the morning I hate the thought of a whole day ahead of me.

Amy Asked: What is a good Psychology topic for an essay?
The essay is only two pages long so I want a topic where there isn't going to be too much information where I go over the two pages. I've already done an essay on Nature vs. Nurture and Insomnia.
