I am turning 18 in a few days and am still a virgin-I've kissed a couple guys but that's it.When I get horny it is sometimes really intense.I mastrubate pretty much every night but sometimes i feel like I just can't wait and have to sneak upstairs to my bedroom to do it.that is a little scary for me even though I know my parents know I do it.what I worry about is that occaisonaly I'll actually start to wonder if I'm sick when I get really horny because I'll start to feel hot,and be tottally unable to concentrate on whatever I'm trying to do,I won't even feel like eating,but it all feels better if I mastrubate!I keep having to tell myself that it isn't hurting me somehow when I mastrubate as this site and many other things I have read say.I feel like if I stopped I would go crazy.is this normal for a girl my age or could there be something wrong with me?

It is normal, and most common, for human beings to have sexual thoughts, feelings and desires. And masturbation is something that the vast, vast majority of the population does, and that population includes children, not just adults or teenagers.
Probably you would not go crazy if you did not masturbate. Seriously. However, since it is perfectly fine to masturbate, if it is something you want to do and enjoy doing, we don't even need to consider that question, because it is something you have the right to do and get to do.
