    I feel so desperate. Not in a lonely or depressed way. I just feel so frantic because I’m literally screwing up my life beyond repair. I’m watching it happen- no matter what I do, it doesn’t help. Only makes it worse. I’m 17 years old, engaged to be married in 3 months, I don’t have a job because no one will hire me due to a bad reference, I’m not going any where career wise. I don’t know how I’ve managed to make so many enemies at the age I am. I’m scared. I’m alone. I’m sick of the panic attacks, and the stress. I’M ALWAYS STRESSED. I can’t deal with this anymore! When I wanted to cut in the past it was because I was sad- depressed. Now it’s because I can’t deal with the way my life is going nowhere but in the trash and all I can do is watch. I feel so hopeless and completely lost. Everyone hates me. My life is NOT working out. I don’t know what to think when people tell me things like: It’s not as bad as it seems or ’Just get through it.’ I don’t know what’s wrong with me, mentally. I can’t think. All I am is afraid. Please help me. I want someone to tell me what to do with my life. It’s garbage.
