I'm 15 years old and in these 15 years I have come to learn a lot about many people and myself. I have come across my fair share with mental illness and have dealt with other people, such as friends and family. My father is an alcoholic and has had countless near death experiences due to his addiction. One of my best friends recently committed suicide this year, she suffered with schizophrenia, severe depression and anxiety, and at one point, closely becoming anorexic.
I'm being bullied constantly in school about my weight and my appearance, I hurt myself to ease the pain a little bit, I have family issues that make my life that more irritating, and to top all of that off, I lost the one person who I could speak to who never made me feel alone.
I am going through a great deal right now with my own personal issues, but having someone pour out and speak to me always helps. I really hope none of you are put off by the fact that I am quite young to be discussing topics that may seem rather sensitive – I am here to be spoken to, and I am here to listen.
I really hope that being able to talk will help you in some small way. <3
