On Post-Graduation Depression: We’re All Coping

I am reflecting. My life doesn’t look like this—my life doesn’t look like what I thought it would. I stumbled upon a path that I never would have laid out for myself. And yes, I still struggle with this. Not because I’m unhappy, but because I feel like I have disappointed a past Me.

Ask A Dude: Help! What Do I Do About My Suicidal BF?

I've been dating a guy for about a year now, he is 27 years old and I'm 24. We haven't had any arguments because we've generally been very open and honest with each other. We've done the whole meet the family and discussion of the future talks... However, my problem is that recently he hasn't been speaking to me (it's been almost a month!).

Sexy Time: Low Libido

Recently, I've been struggling with my sex drive. Specifically, my utter lack of one. That's not a problem I expected to confront, as I've always had a pretty strong libido. But I had a less than stellar summer - between my quasi-forced celibacy, feverishly searching for a new place to live, my soul-crushing job, and an utterly disgusting diet, I wasn't at my best.

Sex in the News: Sex, Depression, and College Students

A more recent study published in the Journal of Psychology, Health and Medicine, found that depression is closely linked to risky sexual behavior among teen girls. Dr. Puja Seth and colleagues at Emory University found that depressed girls were “less likely to ask a partner to use a condom, were much more afraid to talk about condoms with a partner, had more sexual partners and were more likely to have intercourse while high on drugs or alcohol.”

Body Blog: Don’t Worry, (Here’s How to) Be Happy

It’s that time of year during which my peers and I are go crazy trying to prepare for upcoming midterms, lab practicals, 10-page essays, and other ultra stressful, all-nighter inclining assignments. Although I am not pre-med, almost everyone in my classes is (it’s the sad reality of being a nutrition major) and their academic stress and competitiveness can be contagious if one is not careful.

Tuffy Luv Talks Birth Control

Dear Tuffy Luv, My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost five months, and until recently, it has been amazing. About a month and a half ago I began taking the pill - Loestrin 24 Fe - out of necessity. The condom broke a few times and I had to take Plan B. At first I was pleased with it. There's only one side effect. But it's a BIG one.

It's not something they're proud of, but Cornell University has long been known for their high rate of student suicide. They experienced a bit of reprieve from the tragic trend between 2005 and 2008, but this school year hasn't been quite as positive.

We’ve All Got the Internet Blues

So according to a recent study, the Internet is making us depressed. While the scientists behind the study link depression to the amount of time spent in a virtual world, I have a few of my own theories as to why the Internet is making us all very, very sad.

Bad News for Band Geeks

Sixth grade was a rough year for me. I was sitting at the semi-popular table at lunch and was delusional enough to think I was the cat’s pajamas. Looking back, I simply was not. Maybe because I used phrases like "the cat's pajamas." And now, a Swedish study is telling me that my unpopularity will cause me to suffer from heart disease and diabetes later in life and I will most likely start doing drugs and try to kill myself.

You’ve Been Dumped. Let’s Move On

Newsflash: No one likes to be dumped. It's the ultimate feeling of being unwanted, unloved, and just not good enough. Welcome to the last week of my life. After spending the last year hoping to do so, I finally reconnected with my high school sweetheart -- someone I had tons of history with and who knows me better than anyone.
