At 17 it is normal: o feel this way. You are going through a very chaotic phase in life and in the process doing a lot of work getting to know yourself.

Why do I have like mood swings when im in a relationship with a guy but when I don't have a bf when im lonely my moods aren't that bad. Why is that?
Ever listen to us?: Minor HAHA there to get us rolling. Seriously, even if we're alone (i.e. not in a relationship) sometimes it's easier to be around OURSELVES than around others. That being said, it seems you WANT to be around men but then, for some reason your mood swings sabotage the relationship. Seeing a good psych doctor will help discover where the glitch lies so you can make necessary adjustments. Good luck. ...Read more
When I speak to people I don't know I just like a rabbit in the headlights and really awkward why is this?
Natural instinct: When faced with the unknown we assume its a threat until proven otherwise and so the body prepares to deal with the threat by releasing adrenaline which prepares us for fight or flight by shunting blood flow to muscles and brain. In the modern world neither option is viable so, like the rabbit, we freeze. As you talk to more strangers in similar situations this perception of threat will fade. ...Read more

There may be nothing: Wrong with you or you may be suffering greatly. The fact that you cannot remember is common among sexual abuse victims. It is indeed a common reason for someone to enter therapy. Painful memories can easily be repressed. There's no problem with that as long as they do not affect your mood, behavior, or relationships in adulthood. If they do, then it would be advisable for you to enter therapy to explore the issue further.If you wish to remember what happened, then more of an uncovering psychoanalytictherapy with hypnotic components may be advisable. If you do not wish to remember then that is entirely a decision between you and your therapist and will have a lot to do with both your and your therapists perceptions of your over all psychological strength.

I don't think you guys are even reading my questions. Cold feeling in my chest that bothers me a lot. I have to wear a jacket. It's not normal right?
Hmmm...: This is a challenging question given what is presented. A localized sensation of cold in the chest could be how your body interprets pain in the region--for instance, an erosion (sore) in the esophagus or stomach may be perceived in many ways by an individual. True loss of core temperature could be a thyroid issue or low blood sugar. I would first recommend an exam and possibly chest XR to start. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes I just feel like I want to have more fun before settling down even though I love this girl, what should I do?
Grow up: You may love her, but clearly you need to do more emotional maturing before getting into a committed relationship. It's not fair to you and certainly not fair to her otherwise. Sometimes though that growth can be gotten by looking at what you are going for. Is it that you want more fun, or that you are scared of the relationship? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why is it not a good idea to tell someone depressed or anxious to stop feeling sorry for themselves? Won't it make them man up and get over things?
Probably not: Someone who worries aka anxiety will now likely worry that you don't like or respect them and avoid or shy away from you. A depressed person already feels bad enough you don't need to additionally point it out to them (they know). If you want to be helpful you can empathize and say yeah that sucks or just point out how its not so bad and there are other positive things to focus on. ...Read more

Get seen: For some men, erection is easy but ejaculation is difficult in some or all circumstances. For example, many men find getting oral sex extremely exciting but can't climax. If this is a factor in all situations, including when you're by yourself, it may be from meds (SSRI's, etc). If just intercourse, work with your partner on positioning and so forth. Ask your doctor if yohimbine is right for you. ...Read more

Blood in urine, do men get UTI also? I am seeing blood in my urine and feeling pressure only when i go urinate. The only symptoms i had before i started seeing blood yesterday was discharge of a thick substance showing up on my underware for about a week.
Absolutely: Men can definitely get utis. Symptoms of blood in the urine also require evaluation to rule out diagnoses other than UTI including stones and tumors of the urinary tract. Start by seeing your urologist and getting a urinalysis and urine culture. And a hematuria (blood in urine) workup if blood confirmed in urine. You urologist will direct the diagnosis and treatment following these tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My boyfriend loves me a lot i just feel i can't open my heart enough to enjoy this experience & feelings i'm afraid to get hurt.I wanna feel love how?
If my man excreted a clear fluid doing arousal does that mean he really excited and happy with the love making?
Maybe a little: Clear, pre-ejaculate fluid occurs in all men during sexual arousal, but more in some men than others. (Sometimes called pre-cum, for obvious reasons.) It also occurs with nocturnal erections during dream sleep. In other words, it's physiologic. However, pre-ejaculate fluid may appear more quickly or in greater amounts if he is especially excited, so perhaps you can take some of the credit for it! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
