I’m glad you came here to join our group. There are quite a few people here in the Depression forum, and on the Anxiety & Panic forum, who suffer from post-traumatic stress, and we do understand how scary and overwhelming it can be. I’m sorry the counseling isn’t helping you…..maybe you need a different counselor. I hope you will talk to your doctor about
that, and try to get a different referral. I also hope you will discuss the possibility of pregnancy with your doctor as well. Missing a period can be caused by a number of different factors, including stress, but you should really get a good physical checkup and find out what’s going on.
Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your father. I am so sorry…..you must feel a terrible sadness, especially with being estranged from your mom. I hope you will talk to someone about
this – maybe a teacher or counselor at school. You need support right now.
I’m also sorry that your mom has been verbally and physically abusive towards you. I think your teacher had a legal obligation to report the abuse, and in my opinion, she did the right thing. Your mom has no right to do the things she has done to you. You deserve to be loved and cared for, Barbie.
I’m not sure what else I can suggest to you about
your situation. You are so young to be dealing with all of this, and without parental support. Please talk to an adult who you feel you can trust…..it’s very important that you find someone to confide in about
all the issues you’re dealing with. Also, please see your doctor about
your suspected pregnancy. I’m concerned about
you, and want you to have the best care possible. Please stick with us, and keep us posted. ((((hugs))))
