Hello Emotional Distress,
Welcome to HealingWell. I am glad you found us and you have received wonderful input so far.
Karen posted the MoodGymn site...........they have two sites now so you may want to take a look at both and see which one fits your needs better. I do know many have benefited from CBT.
The MoodGym Training Program
and the new program
You've come to the right place to find people that have a good idea of what you're going through. I look forward to seeing you around.
TeNNis gave you excellent advice a she has been down this road and with great spport, hard work and determination she has made excellent progress.
I will check in on you tomorrow to see how your doing.

As the Mom of 2 grown happy men (now) 23 and 27 I can tell you ( from what I am reading of your posts) you are normal. My feelings are you are going thorugh normal stages that the majority of boys your age go through, at least mine did. Don't be so hard on yourself.
At this time in your life your developing relationships...deciding what works, what doesn't. Thats the whole idea. I can tell you my sons dated many different gals ( youngest still dating, and having fun at it) and had their hearts broken a few times and it seemed like the end of the world.
But now the oldest looks back and thinks he was crazy, when truly (he realizes now) this was just life teaching him what characteristics he likes in a gal or not.
Be patient. Thats why it's called dating. A time to learn what you like and don't like, what you will or will not put up with in a lifetime. Your not crazy, your a normal young man determining what kind of person you want to hook up with in the long run.
I suspect you will find it eaiser to if you would just relax more. Get involved in something else. Sports? Exercise was the thing my boys grabbed onto ,taking care of their needs and they love exercising, made a big difference for them. By doing that it increased their self worth and self esteem and everyone flocked around them ( gals included).
My advise, get busy..take care of you...the rest will follow..I promise. Hugs~Katie
