    I Just Don't Know What to Do Or Where to Turn.

    I started therapy when I was in high school... things cleared up for a bit, but then I went to college and life went to hell.  I've had my ups and downs and now here I am married and feeling like ****.  Last year I went through what's called a partial hospitalization...

    I Drain People

    I have so much baggage and so many little issues, it makes me a difficult peson to live with, a difficult person to love.  I need to figure out what's wrong with me, not just for my own sake, but especially for the sake of the people I love.

    ...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.

    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 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?
