If anyone here has a religious belief, please say a prayer for me. I could use some inconditional good will.

I have a confession to make. Yes, me, I, shall make a confession...

I have an anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, a list of phobia's, and am clinically depressed. I should be seeing a therapist for all this. But my mother is of the mind that it will be on my records and I will forever be barred from getting a job. I have tried countless and countless times again to convince her to let me see one, but it seems she just says 'Okay, I will' to make me shut up, it seems she is one of those people who believes that mental disorders do not exist and that I am just making it up. If it were not for the fact I am on her insurance, I would seek help on my own, but alas, it is all for naught. I do dread to tell you all that it was but four years ago when I attempted suicide for the first and only time that my mother even took notice, but thought of it as a cry for help. It is but my simple wish she believed me ever so.

You're 18 you can schedule your own appointments and just provide them with your insurance card when you go. The thing to do it without your mom's knowing or permission is you'd have to pay your copays.

Unless you plan to join the CIA or something or be something very public (e.g. a Senator), it's incredibly unlikely your mental health history will come back to bite you, especially since society seems to be reevaluating its views on mental illness and 20 years from now it probably won't even matter. The problems you have aren't even "bad" problems in a way - anxiety disorder is pretty understandable, though people with depression still get trouble, all in all your mother's fear is pretty unfounded.

When i go to job interviews i openly say i smoke weed. You've no idea how much people dont give a fuck about these kind of things. If you can do the job, and do it good, you will be fine.

So hakuna matata dude, and get treatment because as you just saw me post, anxiety almost killed me.

I'd go to a therapist if it also weren't for the fact my mother likes to know everywhere I am going, and also works and is the only one who can drive. So as you can see, I don't exactly have much say in if I can get help or not.

Not to be a dick but nothing you said is basis for not calling a helpline or whatever. You've got functional legs and a middle finger. Use both.

Angel, are you in college currently? There may be an on campus center that you could go to. But I guess if you can't drive and are still living with your mom, you might still be in high school or not in college.

Either way, Whatis is still right, you should be able to go on your own. Medical records are very confidential. The only way your parents get your information once you turn 18 is if you explicitly choose to release it to them. If your mother says "Ok I will" then say "Okay I'll schedule the appointment and all you need to do is drop me off".

I was in this situation one time too. Your Mother will keep controlling your life unless you do something about it. You may not notice now but after college when you (hopefully) have a steady job you're probably going to still live with your mother because she has this hold over you ( assuming you still live with her). I think you should sit down with her and explain to her that you're an adult now and she needs to respect your decisions. But don't expect her to pay for those Co-payments, first because it wouldn't get you anywhere, she'd still treat you like a child and second it's time to man up and use your job money to pay for things you need

I feel like shit today, more shitty than i usually do. So there is this girl that i have a lot in common with (right down to a couple of physical defects.) i told myself that i wouldn't develop feelings for her because she has a boyfriend and i respect that. The thing is i don't have feelings for her, not like strong feelings. Would it be cool if she became single and i could have a shot? Totally but i'm not waiting for that day nor do i expect it to arrive any time soon. I guess I've just been feeling sadder because when i look at her i just remember how lonely I've been these past few months. I mean my gosh i probably say maybe 5-10 words each day. It doesn't matter to me if i have an SO or not right now. But I would like some new friends.

Nothing stops you from being her friend even though she has a boyfriend, unless the boyfriend is an insecure, possessive, asshole
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Still trying to deal with this thing from the last few pages. It's not near as bad as it was before, but it still bothers me. Every so often it'll pop back in my head that "I was a fucking idiot messing this friendship up" despite still being in the dark about the whole thing. I've lost friends before, but this is the worst it's ever been, involving me losing 5 friends for the price of 1.

I've actually been considering going back to therapy since again stress has been affecting my health and mentality, more it being work than just this incident. Sadly, it's kind of out of my price range with what I make.

Can't your health insurance cover it?

I think it's something like you can be on your parent's insurance until you're 26 if you're a student.

I've recently realized that, with everything that's going on in the news, I'm becoming an anti-bullying activist. There's so much shit going on now... It's unsettling, really. So many people are killing each other and themselves. The next generation is really fucked, though; middle school was a fucking nightmare for me, and that was the casefor a lot of those disceased in he past two weeks. Next thing I know, I'll be in college and fucking elementary school kids will be trying to cut themselves with safety scissors or some shit...

I even wrote a poem about this shit... I figure at that point I want to stop the problem.

Heh...I see my cousin's friends.
They're about 12 and I hear them talking about sex, and 'consistency'. My cousin seems to be mature enough to get past them, but I'm still worried about it.

It's weird how just sitting close to and playing footsie with one girl felt like, as exhilarating as making out with and getting a bj from another girl. Is that weird? I've been thinking about that today, haha
