Is she depressed– important?

Rosabeth Asked: Is she depressed– important?

She's my best friend of 12 years. She's 14. We were very close. About a month ago, she started acting wacky. Here's why I'm not sure…

– she's always had low self-esteem
– she's always had an interest in school
– math is hard for her

Here are the things that have changed

– can't focus in algebra
– sleeping habits changed– gets on internet instead
– has stopped eating a lot… loses weight
– completely ignores me and hangs out with the "dumb" girls
– doesn't want to hang out anymore
– stayed at home on Halloween to sleep
– has low self-esteem
– cries for no reason
– recalls dead relative
– has always been stressed
– is going to therapist
– has, in past, been counseled for anger issues
– used to be bullied
– dad isn't great parent; he's divorced and she travels to see him 2 weekends a month.
– not good with social things
– pressured to be smart by dad
– may or may not be on antidepressants

Is she depressed? Do I talk to her? We got in a fight last night. I don't want her to get hurt. I just want my friend back.

Why isn’t my husband attracted to me after having a baby?

Frustrated Asked: Why isn’t my husband attracted to me after having a baby?

My husband and I just had a baby 2.5 months ago.I have two children from a previous marriage, and never had any complaints, so I am confused. He's only initiated sex a couple times, and has actually turned me down when I do. We actually had an argument about it, and he basically told me it doesn't feel the same. I was furious. Then he tried to retract and say he just has a low sex drive and he's always been that way. We've only been together 2 years, but before I got pregnant, we always did it at least once a day. I still have 11 lbs to lose, but I'm not fat by any means. Help me, I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm going to end up cheating or something. I love and enjoy sex, so it is a very important part of my life. Well not now Lol, but I wish it was.

Improving non existent self esteem?

DJ Asked: Improving non existent self esteem?

I'm 30, this is something I suppose kicked in when I was 14-15 and well its pretty mush ruined every area of my life.

I failed all my exams at school as I figured "I'll probably fail them anyway so whats the point" as a result I've just floated from 1 dead end job to another. Driving same issue, "I'll probably fail so whats the point". I have never once asked a female out, "She'll probably say no so whats the point" I've pushed all friends away so now I have none. As a direct result of all this I've been unable to achieve anything in my life, no decent job, no house, no car, no vacaction, no marriage. My self esteem is so low I won't even talk to attractive members of the same sex at work as I figure "They wouldn't want to be seen with me"

This is all just a brief summary of what my life is like, I am on the train to no where fast and I don't know how to get of.I have social anxiety and depression, I don't know if these are caused by my low self esteem or vice versa.

Any help would be appreciated.

Is She Cheating on Me?

tabavadelpa Asked: Is She Cheating on Me?

I put this in the marriage & divorce category because I want an adults advice rather than some teenager.I am 31 years old and my girlfriend is 28. I'm disappointed in myself that I am turning to the Internet for advice, but I don't know where else to seek an impartial view without damaging her reputation.I really believed that she is the one I would propose to.I have been saving up for a ring for the past few months.Her family adores me, and mine her.Everything seems perfect except for that one guy "friend."

She was friends with him, well before I met her.They would go out quite often in a larger group, or sometimes just the two of them.When I first met her, she told me that really wasn't talking to him at the moment because of his attitude.If you met him, you would certainly agree that it needs an adjustment.After dating for a few months she said that they worked everything out and became friends again.At this point I was without any concerns, it seems natural right?Well upon them becoming friends again he would stay over her house after a night at the bar quite often.

For a period of time she and her friends would go out almost weekly.During that time she was always the last person at the bar with him, and he would end up crashing at her place.Per her story, "He would end up getting really drunk, and she didn't want him driving home."To me that is something that should happen occasionally if necessary, but not frequently.This continued for a period and I finally said something.I told her that I foundit inappropriate that he was staying over her house all of the time.I told her that her relationship with him is shady and she needs to be more respectful.

During this period our relationship hit rock bottom.I wasn't happy neither was she.We weren't making an effort for each other anymore.I finally asked her, "Do you think there is anything left in this relationship?"She told me that she was feeling the same way as me.I expressed my problems with her friendship with this guy, and told her how it was affecting us.She took the stance that she believes friendships are genderless, and that she doesn't see how her behavior with him is inappropriate.She agreed to be careful with this.Two weeks later while talking her she told me that she ended her friendship with him.I didn't ask for that, but will absolutely admit that I was 100% relieved.I said to myself at that time, we just got passed the honeymoon phase of our relationship, whatever happened in the past is now irrelevant.I let it go, and we were really happy and in love.

I get a text from her about 3 weeks ago that said, "Talk about a blast from the past, "……" just texted me and wants to grab a drink sometime.What are your thoughts?"I told her, "Well you know my feelings on this, why ask."She then responded, "I'm actually most interested in hearing how miserable his life has been and then tell him how great mine has been with the perfect guy."I asked her why she was trying to sell this to me like some fool.I asked her why she would make someone that is just a friend jealous.She never came up with a response that satisfied me as to her motives for doing so, she just denied that she was selling this.We fought and we resolved it finally.She saw my side of it, and realized her relationship was inappropriate, and she would not go out for that drink because I am far more important than him.But she also contended my jealousy was misplaced.

Last weekend, she seemed apathetic toward me.It seemed like she was just bored with me.Tuesday I asked her if she really wanted this; which turned into an argument.She's in a bad place right now from her job situation.She said, "I'm in a bad place right now, this isn't a fair time to ask."I said this is a simple question, "Yes or No." She said yes, but i'm really pissing her off and she didn't want to talk then.This reminded me of the earlier months when she was hanging out with this guy.

It finally came to it, I went through her phone.Right or wrong I did it.She initiated a text series with an unnamed number that within it stated, "Stop your begging i'll go grab that beer with you.Let's go Tuesday or Wednesday." By the language used I'm certain it is him.She before told me that he was begging her to get that drink.As I explained in the previous paragraph that very night she seemed apathetic and wasn't sure if I was what she really wanted.

She went away for a week to help her family.Upon her return, I plan to admit that I went through her phone and confront her with her seeing this guy.Before I do so, I need to know whether or not in any way my suspicions are reasonable.I've talked with a woman about this, and she agrees there is

Should there be a law requiring married women to stay within 15 lbs of their wedding day weight?

Madge Pie Asked: Should there be a law requiring married women to stay within 15 lbs of their wedding day weight?

A recent study revealed that just over 50% of men would leave their wives if they gained weight.

Do you condone their decision? So much for "til death do us part.."?

Do you think that something about a woman's weight should be incorporated into wedding vows? Such as, "I promise to love and honor you…unless you get fat"?

Do you think that weight gain is viable reason for divorce and should the man be compensated, with the woman's assets, in the divorce settlement since it's her fat fault the marriage ended?

Some relationship advice?

Spicebabie Asked: Some relationship advice?

Okay! my boyfriend got his green card and went to the States in June, he said he hasn't gotten it yet so he can't come back until he does, we're in September, and my friend got through and got hers within a month, does it take different time for different people?

Anyway, my boyfriend has 2 kids, one went up with him, and the other is just the age of our relationship (3 years old), apparently he didn't tell me until we were very much in love (you know how it is, inseperable, when you've started) and way into the relationship already, because he didn't want to lose me (he said).He says that she left him for someone else, she's living with the man, but pregnant.All along I thought I was going to give this fella his first baby.It destroyed me, our relation is the only long-term relationship i've been in, but definitely not the first person i've loved, it's just that because of my christian home, I couldn't go on with the kind of fellas I chose.

However, since after finding out about (kids), we had arguments quite a bit because of circumstances that showed itself concerning his baby-mamas and kids (yep, two different girls) but he's desperate to keep me, despite me trying to end it a few times.He's a very nice person and often said he'she know he's found a 'good' thing and would do everything to make it work and if he could change his past he would.

I need some advice on how to deal with step-kids and what to expect, what was your experience, and if I should really step into marriage with him, his 2 kids and baby-mamas-drama! I'm 24 and he's 31. Please tell me the worst that can happen with me in the middle there!!!!!

I’m still curious. What would you have done?

E E Asked: I’m still curious. What would you have done?

OK, your Ex-husband (after years of being verbally abusive and almost 4yrs of being divorced being the same way) starts sending you love(e-mails) letters. They have an EXTREMELY depressing tone and talk about keeping your dirty shirt to smell you and pulling out his toenails with pliers and plucking out his eyelashes. Then the day after receiving one such e-mail he sends you a text message that (basically) he's going to commit suicide, and he's crying out for help. So you call the cops to check on him as well as his mother.He is also going through rehab for long time alcohol abuse, which is great but probably greatly exacerbating the situation. Now the coming weekend is your child's (5yr old girl) visitation weekend. She be alone with him for three days. Would you let your child go? Or file a restraining order on him for you and your daughter to keep him away like your attorney is advising?

AS well as for those of you who know about these conditions He has been diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Effect and Paranoid Schizophrenic Tendencies

I did end up filing the restraining order last week and the judge thought this was the best thing to do as well. She said His behavior was extremely concerning to her. I guess I just feel a little bit bad for my daughter. I don't want to keep her from her dad…but I have to be concerned about her safety.

Divorcing: I have to go to court in order for the judge to grant newspaper publication for my missin

ow Asked: Divorcing: I have to go to court in order for the judge to grant newspaper publication for my missin

I haven't spoke to him in almost a year and his phone number has changed.Don't know where he is living.

HOWEVER,Is the judge going to ask me if I have gone to his parents house to try to get in touch with my husband?My answer will be I haven't spoke to his parents in over a year and I dont know if they still live at the same address.Will that be good enough to grant the newspaper publication or will the judge likely want me to try and track the parents down?

If so, will I have to appear in court again for the newspaper publication or no?
