    I miss being in therapy.

    At least my therapist was the only person I could talk to. I dropped all the friends I had because they didn't serve me purpose nor fulfill me, if anything they were ****** friends and toxic. I would like to make friends but I don't mesh well with people and I have an anxiety...

    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?

    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.
