    If They Only Knew....

    I've been fighting with my parents for a long time now. Sometimes things get better, for a while things have been perfect. But then it all comes back. The fighting, and the screaming, and the tears. I remember when it all started. I can close my eyes and see the day that my life...

    A Perfect Facade.

    My parents and I have a complicated relationship. Actually, our whole family does. No one shows their real emotions. I don`t know why, but basically my whole entire family just bottles their feelings up. I think I inherited this because I can`t show my parents how I feel. I am...

    Its Not My Fault

    I genuinely think that my family have no idea at all how miserable I really am. My mum thinks that I'm making myself like this, and I get some kind of kick out of being depressed and if I left the house more often and got up and motivate myself then I won't be so depressed. She...

    My Family Thinks Everything Is "Fine"...

    I hate how my family thinks that everything is okay because my weight is up.  It's not like I'm not doing all sorts of nasty things to lose weight like I was before.  I'm even more miserable now than when I was 64 lbs., my lowest weight.  They think that because I...

    Do They Have Any Idea?

    While a part of me is glad that they don't, it hurts even more to know that they don't know enough about me that I am suffering. I used to leave hints around the house, books on self-harm and depression, but they either ignored it or didn't get the hint.
