hi everyone, im usually over on the colitis board but i've been reading the posts on here for a while now.  i struggled through a flare for about the past 2 years and now i just always feel sad. im act all happy when im around people but i always look foward to being home with no one around. i also started self injuring but i know we cant talk about that.
people at school see me as the innocent perfect girl. its like i want people to know whats really going on like i just wanna scream out for help but im afraid of what they'll think or i'll scare them.
i also dont want to disapoint my family i spend as much time as i can away from them (sleep during the day stay up late when they sleep)
i cant stay have close relationships cause i get so angry or annoyed for no reason once someone gets close
im stuck cause the image i've always had i dont want people to think im a freak and im not sure my parents would believe me if i told them how i really feel..i feel like a huge lie
thanks for any responses

Hi Jleigh

That is a major symptom of depression. When I was in the major rut,with no sign of light at the end of the tunnel no one had a clue.
I longed to be able to laugh and smile and not fake it. It took me a long time to get to that point.
The self injury is something that you really need to get into your doctor about.
At some point you need to understand that what is important is you healing,not what everyone else thinks.
Going to the doctor is not something that everyone is going to find out about. It is not a sign on your forehead.
No one needs to know at all.
Please make the appt as soon as possible.
