I am 18. I have kissed boys without love. It brings me

Customer Question
I am 18. I...
I am 18. I have kissed boys without love. It brings me pleasure but then I find myself in tormenting guilt. I am still a virgin. I am confused because I think, my intellect develops faster then my communication skills. I am worthless. I have negative emotions about myself,like self doubt and self judgement. sometimes I just think that If i died it would not make sense to anyone. I have lost my faith in church as well. Nobody sees the true me. and it's like the situation's hopeless. Sometimes I feel so solitary. It isnt fair! What was I born for?

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am very sorry that you are experiencing these severe depressive symptoms, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. Obviously I cannot answer the question on why you were born as that is beyond my scope as a psychologist and is more of an existential question, so may I ask what is your specific mental health question that you would like an answer to in regards ***** ***** situation?

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
