umm i don't really know what to say, or where to begin...but hey, i just joined here after finding it on google... i joined here because i dunno what else to do....i was told by someone at my college that i really need to go to a councillor, but i can't because my mum doesn't believe in stuff like this and if she found out, she wouldn't understand... i just feel so weird...i'm really scaring myself now, it's getting out of hand so i thought i'd ask you what you think.
 
I've had a few issues in the past, had eating disorders (anorexia -> bulimia -> binge eating disorder when i was fifteen then developed anorexia again last year aged 17), and i'm not sure, i think i've been depressed pretty much most of the time since then really. I've tried to      myself three times but my mum just won't acknowledge it and says i was just "being silly" and stuff like that. She thinks i'm fine now, because i don't even know how i feel myself. Before, i felt like crap, but at least i knew what i was feeling. Now i just feel kind of numb, as if i feel nothing, and then i get scared because i feel like i should care, whether i feel good or bad about life at least it would be a feeling. I just can't take this anymore and i don't know what to do. Please help me... i really don't think going to a councillor is a good idea, i don't think i could just start talking about myself to a person in such a formal setting. Please help me.

Hi Loka,

I am so glad that you have found us. You have come to a very good place. I really think that counseling would help. It doesn't sound like your mom is right. Counseling really helps. She is taking this too lightly. Also you might even need some medications.

How old are you? Are you still under your mother's care? I think it is time for you to think of yourself and get some help.

Keep posting, we are here for you.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Karen, thankyou so much for replying so quickly. I'm 18 now and yeah i still live with my mum...do you know how i could go abut finding a councillor by any chance? Because i'm at college and don't have much money so i'm not even sure where to start, but i'd really need to make sure my mum doesn't find out...she caught me cutting myself once last year and went mental, and i really don't want a repeat if she found out about this... but thanks for your advice....how could i start though? And i dunno about going on meds... my doctor is a bit funny and quite good friends with my mum... but thankyou SO much for the reply,

Hugs back,
Loka

You could talk to your doctor about counseling, or check with the school. Usually there is always a counselor on hand at school. You really need some support now and I highly recommend it. Take your time and look for options. We also have a free online support system that I will provide for you.
 
 
You might find this helpful.
 
there is also
 
 
I hope that this helps some.  You sound like such a special person and I hate to see you hurting like you are.  I hope that you find some support soon.  And don't forget that we are here to help you too.  Learn to love yourself.
 
Hugs, Karen

dear loka, hi & welcome.

thanx for your post. from someone who has had years of therapy, i can say that talking to someone you trust may well be a good step 4 you.  other options, dr, religious person, etc. i would also suggest strongly to see your or a dr. depression is a medical condition and one that needs the assesssment of a dr. journaling is good too, as is taking some notes to the dr. also. as we say in oz, a problem shared is a problem halved.

luv and light to you.

jamiee
