I'm a 17 year old female and I've been taking 50mg Zoloft for 6 mouths now and never in my life have I wanted to rip off my nipples more. I can't tell you how frustrated i am sexually. like, as a teen im still horny as hell but when i try and "relive" the stress, i have huge trouble peaking. i can orgasm but it takes alot of work. like fifty minutes of wrist breaking work and when i do reach my climax, its not that good at all and doesn't help my frustration. being under 18 too, doesn't help at all because i can't change my meds without my parents knowledge and i don't think they's be chill with my reasons. my frustration is getting in the way of my life. I'm totally horny 24/7 with no relief!
Hi guys, I have a 12 year old daughter, who has had a hx of anxiety for quite a few years, but recently it has stepped up a few notches, and I am not sure I'm able to cope for much longer using only cognitive therapy (taught by me through reading, my job as a Paramedic and my own experience with Bi Polar and depression). The anxiety can be about anything from worrying she is going to vomit (this is everyday starts from the minute she wakes up), or whether her friends are setting her up, whether she will have a heart attack. Has anyone else had to finally resort to medicating their kids? Sometimes the panic attacks last for 45 minutes, we have parked outside the school while she has been crying, hyperventilating, and I am so worn out from trying to calm her down. I don't know what else to do. We recently had to fire our au pair, so we are trying to get through without having one, and she has had to be home on her own in the mornings to get herself ready for school and walk to school on her own. Am I putting too much on a 12 year old anxious girl? She often tries to sleep in my bed (sole parent here) to avoid being on her own, I let her sometimes, but mostly not. I work shift work, and we have a babysitter that comes in for my night shifts. Help Advice please.
Hello All! I am a 19 year old Bipolar II with two younger brothers. One is 18, with likely, if undiagnosed, Autistic Spectrum Disorder/Aspergers Syndrome. My youngest brother is 13, and for many years, on and off, he has developed a compulsive blink. He squeezes his eyes shut hard, and more often than necessary. Most of the time, he doesn't notice he's doing it, but as he's aged, he's mentioned how annoying/uncomfortable it is. At first my mother used to tell him off, but I read a bit about Transient Tics, I realised it wasn't his fault, and convinced her just not to mention it. However it still appears sporadically. It always goes away after a little while, but recently I've noticed a pattern; he seems to do it more when I (who have now been away at University for over a year), come home, and he feels some - I assume stress - at conversing with me, when he hasn't in a while. Now my father, who is a very infrequent presence in our lives, is visiting, and he's started ticing (ticking?) again. My mother seems to think it gets worse when he is tired, I haven't noticed this, but thought I should mention it. I'm not too worried about it, but I would like to know if anyone has any information; about how to help him stop (since it bothers him), or what to expect if it gets worse? Can it be a precursor to anything? And is it indicative of anything? Is he more stressed than we think? A little bit on him as a person; he's very funny, and constantly cracking jokes, etc… He exudes confidence, but is actually very nervous in front of new people. He doesn't have many friends - he's been to school for a number of years, but he's been home-schooled for the last two years. Essentially, I am worried there is something going on in his little head, that he is not expressing, and this is presenting itself as a tic. Thank you for all of your help; Lily.
