How do I get over this feeling of shame, regret that I get after I do anything to help others who don't appreciate it?

Therapy may help: It is unusual to feel shame when others don't "appreciate" help you've offered. If this is a longstanding pattern, it probably has roots from your childhood.

? define diet ?: If a teen is overweight s/he is obviously going down a path that is bad for their health.

How do you know if you suffer from anxiety or depression? I tend to feel down but I remind myself I'm strong, so how do I know if thats not enough?

Nice question: Often can get by oneself or even professionals. There are DEFINITIONS that I could recite to you but I think a more practical way to help you is to ask, "How are you performing at home with family, friends, neighbors, etc?" And next, "how about work? Are you still hitting the mark according to your boss, coworkers, clients?" If you are compromised or feel compromised in either situation seek help ...Read more

Are you able to make yourself passout? How do I know if it's fake or real? How long people usually pass out?

Are you able to make yourself passout? How do I know if it's fake or real? How long people usually pass out?

Yes: It is possible to make oneself pass out, however it is not advisable as this is commonly the result of depriving your brain of oxygen. The reason we pass out is to protect the brain from a lack of oxygen as we would fall to the ground and blood moves easily to the brain without the effects of gravity. Depending on the bodies position it may last from a few seconds to a minute or so. ...Read more

What to do if I do not know how I'm going to live at this height forever. what other options are there to grow?

Accept Yourself.: If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Girls complete puberty by ages 15 to 17 & for boys it is by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late. Our height is largely determined by genetics (our parents' height). If you are healthy (no unusual causes for stunted growth/ smaller stature) then there is not a way to become taller ...Read more
