Hi, I am 19 years old, female, 4.0 college student, good family, friends, everything. But ever since I graduated high school things just sort of went downhill for me. I had the typical high school story...dated the quarter back for a year and half...lost my virginity to him...he cheated several times and it literal tore me apart. This was about 2 years ago. I know I'm still not over it but I should be. We randomly hook up but last weekend I made a fool out of myself and he completely ignored me. I still think about him everyday. Anytime he talks to me I get sick to my stomach and last summer he added me on facebook because I had deleted him and for some reason I went into this really depressed mode. I think it's because I expect something from him and nothing ever happens, he could care less and just uses me, yet I still go running back. So last summer I began beating myself up about it and throwing up. I lost 10 pounds but gained it back and now I'm depressed about that. All I think about is food and I will binge and purge more often now. I don't know how to get out of this slump. It's really affecting me. Please help.

Hi Hil,

This is the story of most women's lives. They fall in love, get treated like dirt and go back. It all comes down to self esteem. You need to get yours back up there. And you can do it. Have you thought about counseling? Or getting a good book on it? You need to work on yourself right now. You sound like a smart and compassionate person. I don't think you give yourself enough credit. Think about the counseling, seriously. It would do you good. There are many great counselors out there, you could see somebody at school or private practice. Talk to your doc if you need a referal.

Don't let this guy get you down. Don't put all your faith in him. Don't let him control your moods. Be your own person and do good for you. Think of yourself and make the best of your life. You will go far.

HUgs, Karen
