I’ve Been Seeing and Hearing Things

From a teen in the U.S.: For the past 6 years, I’ve seen this shadowy figure like i see a wall, perfectly physical. Main concern is now i see bloodied skies, Dragons eating shadow people, voices overcrowding my head to the point i recognize nothing around me, sometimes physically painful. Along with these, i no longer am able to comprehend time no more than i can differentiate between reality and falsity. If possible, i’d like to know what this could possibly be. Uncle, who works in medical field, is torn about whether it’s small or dangerous. Also, there’s this man who keeps saying he’s god and continuously proves it.

Umm. This has been going on for 6 years??? If both you and your Uncle are concerned, why aren’t you going to see someone who can help? Of course you are worried. Of course you want it to end. But you can’t expect yourself to handle it on your own.

Without talking to you directly, I can’t offer an opinion about what is going on. I can only tell you that it is serious and that you need to get a serious evaluation. Please make an appointment with a mental health counselor. Since your uncle is in a medical field, he probably knows how to find out about counselors in the area who specialize in working with teens. A counselor can help you understand what is going on and can offer you the support and practical help you need to change the situation.

You deserve the help. You deserve the peace of mind that can come with understanding. You deserve to have a life without the struggle.

I wish you well.
Dr. Marie

Working Remotely Is Not Necessarily Stress-Free

Many believe that working from home or remotely can foster freedom and stress-free job satisfaction, and that everyone wants  more work autonomy. A new study from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, says “Not so fast.” In the study, researchers examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. Their findings suggest that a variety of factors can undermine or accent the employee benefits of working off-site. Accordingly, researchers developed new strategies to help managers provide remote-work opportunities that are valuable to the employee and the company. “Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote. The study appears in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology . In the review, a total of 403 working adults were surveyed for the two studies that made up the research, said lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D. Re

Today’s Popular Music is More Angry, Sad and Less Joyful

Today’s popular music is noticeably different from the popular songs of the 1960s and 1970s. Now a new study reveals that it’s not just the music itself that is different; today’s music consumers seem to prefer songs that express darker emotions in both lyric and tone. The findings, published in the Journal of Popular Music Studies , show that the expression of anger and sadness in popular music has increased gradually over time, while the expression of joy has declined. Using quantitative analytics, researchers from Lawrence Technological University in Michigan studied changes in popular music lyrics throughout the last seven decades, from the 1950s to 2016. Data scientists Kathleen Napier and Dr. Lior Shamir analyzed the lyrics of more than 6,000 songs found on the Billboard Hot 100, a list of the most popular songs of each year. In the past, songs were ranked primarily by record sales, radio broadcasting, and jukebox plays, but in more recent years, popularity is based on several

I Pretend that Fictional Characters Are Real & Talk to Myself as Them

I’ve always loved to play pretend. But now that I’m a teenager, instead of outgrowing it, it’s gotten worse. Now I’ve gotten to the point where it’s an obsession, and I spend more time with my imaginary friends then with real people. I pretend that my favorite characters from movies and TV shows are real, and I talk to myself, both as myself and the character. I have long discussions with myself. I also pretend that they are with me everywhere I go–to the supermarket, to my cousin’s house. I pretend that they’re with me, no matter what I do. Lately, I’ve also been doing something that’s hard to explain: I pretend to be two people (usually myself and my mother, or a cousin, or a made-up person) and have a pretend to have a conversation with them. I pretend that the fiction character is watching me and my mother/cousin/other. Usually, those scenarios involve either a verbal fight, or joking. I’m really concerned because I know this is abnormal and I’m not living a normal life. I’m worri
