    Because It Keeps Me Sane!

    Haha not really. But I am pretty worried about what happens when I stop going...I don't talk much, and it's a relief for me to be able to talk about my "crazy sad ****"(Silver Linings Playbook) without judgement. Lots of people complain about it, but I honestly look forward to...

    I know when I have problems: Anorgasmia

    and low-self esteem are things I have suffered my whole life along with depression...they are not "pretend" but very much facts. My mother continues to deny I have any "problems" in my life as if I were some common liar. I am certain if I went through my life history as I did...

    ...Desprately.

    emotional abuse, compulsive overeating disorder, bullying, and most recently, dreams of rape. The list goes on and on. I can't handle this on my own. Everyone says I'm strong but on the inside, I'm deteriorating.

    I need to talk to a therapist

    or counselor about the school/health issues I've been going through recently, but I don't know how to go about asking my mom to look into it with me. I guess I'm a bit nervous and ashamed that it had to get this far, but things just keep getting worse... How do I bring it up?
