    I just meant I felt it was slightly insensitive to ask.
    I did think that self destructive behaviour was part of it, otherwise I guess it wouldn't be a problem would it.

    You're on a MH thread, I don't think it's insensitive to ask at all.

    Sorry, I'm not sure what you're asking in your second sentence so I'll leave it.

    Crap couple of weeks followed by me having either horrific IBS or a stomach bug, can't work out which. Thing is, in another 3 weeks I'm having my meds reviewed and although I thought I was doing ok things seem to be getting worse. It's such a pain, maybe we can come up with something else. It doesn't help that I'm in pain so often either.

    I don't feel very well inside. I think it's going to be hard for me for the next week or so until this month is over

    I also don't feel well right now. Starving myself again, and this time I've also convinced myself that I'm saving money that way (no more food from my mum in the freezer, so I have to order takeout or go grocery shopping) I also get that I'm very stressed since it's finals season, but still.

    Not to mention some romantic trouble, too -_-

    I keep telling myself I need to get help for my anxiety but not actually doing it. Bloody vicious circle.

    Can I please give up now? I given it my all and then some. I can't do this any longer. There's nothing left. I just want to stop. I hate this. I hate this.

    sometimes we need to admit defeat before being able to build ourselves back up from the bottom.

    Don't give up, try a new angle. if something isn't working for you, don't keep doing it. Find another way to make yourself feel you. we only live once, live it once and be happy.

    I truly believe that now.

    I've had depression since I was about 13, my mum got cancer shortly after and my dad died when I was 14. I'm sixteen now and had therapy from Feb 2014 until March 2015. I've been on antidepressants for over a year. I was on the verge of an eating disorder as I have many a time tried to make myself throw up (my gag reflex is weak making it very difficult for me to throw up) and I have starved myself on occasion, once starving myself for 48 hours and self harming as punishment when I ate. Because of my illnesses I lagged behind on school and developed serious anxiety surrounding public speaking and exams. At one point I had two therapists. Now I am better, since early April a lot has happened. I had a boyfriend who actually only lasted little more than a week - I go to an all girls schools and boyfriends are in short supply especially for a socially nervous person such as me and the confidence boost I got from having a boyfriend was incredible. It almost catapulted me into happiness. The situation is hard to explain but my way of coping with depression was strange, I would sink into an imaginary world, which was completely developed. I could spend hours a day daydreaming about it.
    Since I had this boyfriend I stopped this daydreaming, it couldn't have happened quicker because I no longer felt the need to fantasise about another life as for once mine was fulfilling me.
    the boyfriend didn't work out and he majorly broke my heart - yes it lasted a week and yes I'm only sixteen but I felt so much for him and what happened (he got with another girl from my school) absolutely tore me apart. It's taken me a long time to get over it and it's been hard but there's this sense of it just being a normal thing to be upset about it. The old me would have self harmed to oblivion because of this - I haven't self harmed since early March. Basically I've got a lot better and it's an incredible feeling. I would love to talk to more people about mental health as not only have I experienced it but I also aim to be a psychotherapist so hmu!
