Its a pleasure to meet you as well.
I went to my school counselor. My parents wouldnt listen to me when I tried talking to them. I was really afraid also. I wasnt sure how to express my feelings. But, I wrote a letter to my school counselor and gave it to her. Then, we talked about
it. Talking to her did help. I still go to her usually once a week. She helps. But, talking to your parents is a very good idea. Hopefully, they will be more understanding than mine. My mom told me it was just a phase and it would 'probably' go away...boy was she wrong!
I know exactly what rosacea is. I dont have it, but my aunt does. She has struggled with it for some time. I know it really affects your self esteem. I am always afradi people are staring at me or thinking negative thoughts.
16 is very hard. Or has been for me! School is crazy! I dont like being around people and there are alot of people at my school. I take like all advanced classes, which have so much more homework! And I never feel like I have time to do it all! It is very overwhelming....I dont make a lot of new friends myself. But, I have one cloase friend so...guess thats good. I dont go out so that I can meet new people....
I hope you get better and I hope you dont have to go through what I did to get there! Hopefully, your rollercoaster ride will be less bumpy than mine! Thats great. I am almost always on AOL so feel free to talk whenever. Since I stay in my room I am always here to talk!! Never to busy to help!
Glad you found us. Hope you keep posting. If you talk to your parents, let us know how it goes! You are strong and you will get through this....remember that!
