    Zero posted an update 2 days, 22 hours ago

    Today I’m wearing a binder because my dysphoria is really bad. My parents won’t let me cut my hair short so that doesn’t help. My mother saw all my scars from me cutting and she said ”If you really want to cut that bad, get over here and I’ll show you how to do it the right way” I don’t know what to do anymore.

    Mood : Apathetic
    • Your mother has no right to say what she said to you @zerohappythoughts, you deserve so much better Zero, please be kind to yourself and know you are truly beautiful, incredible and amazing inside and out, love and embrace every part of yourself, smile when you look in the mirror and see the reflection of the fabulous person staring back at you,…[Read more]

    So, I think I had a psychogenic blackout yesterday. I googled it, and google was all like, “oh by the way, these are like, seizures and stuff” so that scared me until I saw the other bit –

    Basically what happened was I took an AP test. In the middle, my anxiety spiked through the roof, and I don’t remember the second half of the test. Nor do…[Read more]

      I’m so sorry that happened to you @985921sqh, try to relax and make each day as positive as you can Echo, I don’t want to see you suffering blackouts sweetie, find ways to calm and ease your mind so you feel upbeat and positive in mind, body and spirit, do look after yourself physically, mentally and emotionally Echo, hold your head up high and…[Read more]

    • I’d really recommend talking to your physician about this, for a referral to a good therapist (if you aren’t already seeing one.) A CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) approach is terrific for managing anxiety and helping provide you with coping skills when faced with situations that send you into “fight/flight/freeze” modes of anxiety. With…[Read more]

    I feel pretty confident in saying that I fucked up, maybe irreparably.
    I woke up (this was the day before yesterday), forgot to take my meds, didn’t eat, went into withdrawal, had several screaming matches with my parents, got myself grounded for… I don’t even know how long, and now my response to anything my parents say is either “no,”…[Read more]

    I screwed up really badly, and desperately need y’alls advice. You’ve never done me wrong in the past.

    Here’s what happened.
    My mom noticed I came upstairs too early and asked me if I had eaten and packed lunch. I told her yes, like I always do. This time, she checked, and when she found no cereal bowl on the counter, and my empty lunch box,…[Read more]

    Mood : Infuriated
    • I think you’re approaching a metaphorical fork in the road. You have two “roads” to go down. The first option is you do whatever your parents want even if it’s killing you. Start eating more than one meal a day, use some other tactic to handle the consequences, and find a way to make it up to them for what you did before. The second option is…[Read more]

    • Please eat, stay healthy and take care of yourself @985921sqh, your parents have no right to scream, argue and shout at you Echo, they should realise that you are struggling and do their best to support and help you, please look after yourself Echo, don’t starve yourself Echo, try to eat so you can keep yourself going Echo, I want to see you…[Read more]

    So… I’ve lost six pounds in about, what, a week and a half, probably due to my fast metabolism and already slight frame. Everyone around me seems to move, speak, and react faster. I don’t care, though. Time already goes by slowly enough, so it’s just a side effect of my one meal a day schedule.

    Mood : Listless
    • All in all, that sounds positive. I hope you like those results as much as I would… It sounds great!

    My ex. Almost forgotten.

    Then a close friend (who also happens to be his ex) told me that one of her friends was playing truth or dare with a group of popular kids. Long story short, the three of us hatched a plan to to listen in, and ended up on the phone with it muted on our end (so that we could hear them, but they couldn’t hear us).

    Mood : Crushed
    • Omg. I didn’t expect this at all. I’m so sorry for what has happened, and I wish I could’ve consoled you when I had the chance, but you we’re hiding the fact that you were crushed and sad. I’m so sorry again, Jesus is that depressing and so messed up.

    • Don’t let what your ex is doing bring you down @985921sqh, you are such a special and amazing person who deserves happiness in life Echo and to be loved, one day you will find your knight in shining armour, you will meet someone wonderful who will love you unconditionally and who will stick by you no matter what, focus on surrounding yourself with…[Read more]

    • I’m so sorry Echo, this is all very intense and annoying I can’t imagine how upset you are, but please don’t let that asshole and his shady life get you down. Be strong and persist on with your life, it will fade away and we are all here for you, don’t hesitate to come to us to vent or get support. ♥ Here for you completely!

    • With those facts, whatever the truth is, it doesn’t sound like your ex was somebody you’d want to be around anyways. I’d say it’s not worth the time and effort to think about or find out who he’s spending time with. You’re very likely better off without him and it’s best to keep him in the past- not the present. Right?

    It’s been a while since my last update. Hope no one worried too much. Anyway, I’ve taken to a new eating schedule: Skip breakfast, skip lunch, eat dinner (if Mom makes me). This is because I just haven’t felt any motivation to eat. The only thing I’m a bit nervous about is my parents. I hope the drop in weight isn’t that noticeable (I was 110…[Read more]

    • I’m sorry you are going through this! Please try to eat even if you don’t want to or have to force yourself to. Eat small portions but good protein and healthy foods. I am going through something similar where I have no motivation to eat at all.

    I haven’t eaten in forty one hours.

    It’s not that I have anorexia or anything (not that there’s anything wrong with having anorexia, but I just don’t have it). I just haven’t felt hungry, so I haven’t eaten. I probably won’t eat for another nine or so hours; I can’t not eat in front of my family.

    I should probably be worried, but I’m…[Read more]

    I had a panic attack this morning. We had a school assembly and all 500 kids in my school were in the gym. They had to call the nurse to come get me. Why can’t I just sit in a room full of people without freaking out.

    It happened again.

    I’m referring to my last update. The long and the short of it is that someone I thought I trusted had actually been lying to me from the day we met. They were saying that my friends (different friends than last time) were bullying them, when in reality, they were the ones doing the bullying.
