I am 23 years old and my mood swings very quickly, sometimes I feel like I should go far away by leaving from everything but I can't do that and most of the time I'm being in sorrow and I'm not interested in anything I don't know why I'm feeling like this. Please tell me any solution for this and I would like to know my mental status.

I've had this issue for a long time; the notion of having sex with my family members crosses my mind, and even though I know it's not ethically proper, I can't stop myself. Even the notion that the person with whom I want to have sex wants to have sex with me occurs to me. As a result, I've been into a lot of difficulty. I am always depressed.

Male | 30

As you said things are not ethically right, so it's always better to drop a task that will create problems in future and even difficulties in the family... 

counselling therapy is required.. 

You can also contact me on my private chat or directly in my clinic. We can send you the medicines by courier.
