    There's nothing wrong with SSRI's if you really need them. I took them and hated it but I DID NOT need them. I'm down to 10 mg's a day and by april or may I should be off completely.

    I don't mean to contradict you or anything.

    Don't worry about it, you have a different experience with them and a different opinion. I have friends that use em, but I'm wary of em.
    Especially with those tv commercials that have people sittin at a desk at work all sad and they take this magic pill and all of a sudden they're all happy.
    That's like "even if your life is dull and miserable you can be happy with our product"
    For biological imbalances they are key and I wouldn't want to insult anyone who really needs them.
    But for being bummed out from a girl isn't a good reason for them I kinda think.

    Bummer, I can't see it. I'm at my work computer (working hard?) and those things always get blocked... I'll check it out when I can though, thanks!

    I don't know the situation, but it doesn't really sound too much like you need drugs... just somebody neutral to talk with. Counseling is the best bet right now. Your mom doesn't need to know, especially if you expect her to give you flack about it; there are plenty of free, confidential counseling services out there. You can call your local city hall or county government office and ask them, or look it up in the phone book.
    Now isn't the time to be worrying about what your mom thinks. You have issues that you need to deal with for yourself, and if you don't, then you might really end up with problems like your uncle. But counseling isn't going to cause those problems; that's like saying prostate exams give you colon cancer. Just because people in therapy have problems, it doesn't mean that therapy caused those problems. People seek out therapy because they have problems, not the other way around.
    If your mom is keeping you from getting therapy because she has issues about her brother, then she should probably be in therapy too. I don't want to be accusatory, but that's just a huge red flag for me - keeping someone else from seeking out help is an incredibly destructive, codependant behavior and I think you really should get some distance from it for the sake of your emotional well-being.

    A few years ago, I broke up with my boyfriend of 2 years. It was VERY difficult, not only because of the years of emotional attachment, but because he was still in love with me. It took about 3 long talks for him to realize that we weren't going to get back together.

    Relationships are tough. Especially this part of them. You're far from alone in being stressed out because of a situation like this.

    The one thing that really helped me - and I recommend to you - is to really take the time to focus on being ME, by myself, and not half of a relationship. CUT HER OFF. I know you don't want to hear that, but be strong. It sounds like your girlfriend is also afraid of being separated. Be strong. It will be good for her, too.

    If I hadn't been firm...even when it would have been so much more secure and easy to get back into the relationship...I never would have met some of my best friends, nor would I have discovered carnivorous plants, or ultimate frisbee - my two biggest passions. and where would i be without CPs?!

    I'm not a fan of government intrusion into private lives, but there ought to be a law banning any commitment in young relationships. Based on my experience and observations, I'd say people are mature enough for alcohol long before they're mature enough for a serious relationship.
