Hi guys, I am becky and I am 15 years old. I was diagnosed with PANDAS at age 10. PANDAS is a condition where you become obsessed over something, bad thoughts come in your head, and just complete hell. If you wanna find out more, Google it and it’ll tell you cause I could explain for hours what goes wrong. I was extremely depressed and suicidal for 5 months until I was put on Prozac. Prozac was working fine until the summer before eighth grade. I was 13 years old. I became worried about everything I ate ad started restricting. Soon enough I was barely eating anything and was diagnosed with anorexia. I was hospitalized for a week because I refused to eat what the doctors said and so they could monitor my depression. It was the worst days of my life, no parents, no friends with me. no one. Just a cold hospital room with a light blanket and uncomfortable bed. I wasn’t allowed to have my phone, or have any pajama bottoms with strings in case I tried to kill myself. When I was let out, I was even worse than before… That summer was the worst of my life and started off one of the worst school years I ever had… Eighth grade… Everyone noticed when I walked into school on the first day that something was different. When I left the lunch table to go get a napkin, I came back and started talking to my friend and she told me that as soon as I left the rest of the girls that I thought I was friends with started talking about how I was too skinny and stuff like that. I had to switch out of that lunch period… Even my lunch monitor who didn’t know a thing would come over and ask if I ate anything for lunch because she saw how thin I was. During swim season that year, I would turn blue because I was so cold because I had no fat on my body. My ex-bestfriend Grace thought that I spread a rumor about her, which I didn’t, so she started texting me things like I was a skinny little prick and everyone thought I was and looked disgusting. My mom came home to me crying on the floor of my family room…. There are many more stories during that time but I’ll jump to right now.. I am at a healthy weight but I am still dealing with eating problems. I have EXTREME anxiety basically all the time and I am still scared of food, but I eat it with much regret. I feel fat most of the time but I feel like I am stuck with the mindset of an anorexic for the rest of my life. My anxiety/depression medicine is maxed out (I can’t raise the dosage) and I can’t miss a day or I’ll go on a downward spiral. They barely work anyway lol… So if you have an eating disorder or severe depression, I would be a good person to talk to because I know your point of view. Talk to me bbys! I love you!
Hi everyone, I’m Henah! I’m a senior in college, studying psychology and communication. These majors have helped me to listen more, and I’ve had lots of experience in giving advice. Throughout my teenage years, I’ve dealt with the usual stuff like bad break ups, gossip, fighting with friends, feeling insecure, and more. And I’ve also dealt with a lot of extreme psychological issues with people close to me such as depression, bulimia, schizophrenia, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, to name a few. I’d love to get to know each and every one of you so please feel free to talk to me :) I love you all!
Hey! My name is Abby and I’m a freshman. This past school year I was bullied by two past friends and I had no friends to talk to. I would eat lunch alone and do everything by myself. Thankfully I had a great counselor and mom who helped me and gave me amazing advice. I eventually decided to switch schools. I want to be able to share all of the great advice I received with all of you! Please feel free to ask my anything! xx
Hi I’m Becky and I am 19. In high school I thought I had to be perfect. Perfect hair, makeup, friends, and clothes. I thought I had everything perfect, but I was so wrong. I became sick with the H1N1 virus aka swine flu. I missed 2 months of school and fell far behind. There went the perfect grades. I was so sick and week even months after I was cured. I was too weak to play tennis. I had played since 2nd grade and was nationally ranked. There went the varsity tennis team. I was so sick at one point they tested me for various forms of cancer. It felt like my perfect life was just caving in on me. I became severely depressed. I tried to cope but controlling how I ate and worked out. This quickly turned into anorexia and bulimia. I became obsessive and was later diagnosed with OCD. I was having panic attacks daily. I drifted away from my friends because they had no idea what I was dealing with. I isolated myself which just made everything worse. I am now going into my sophomore year in college. I’m not cured of anything. I never will be. I have to accept that and learn to deal with it. When dealing with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, and anything else I promise you are not alone. That’s why we are all here. Love you and stay strong :) xo
Hey, my name is Sarah, and I’m 16.
When I was 12 years old, I got into an abusive relationship that lasted for a couple of years. I was raped, hit, kicked, choked, etc. During this time, I was convinced that this was all my fault, that I had to fix things, that if I could only be a better girlfriend, all of this would stop. I thought I couldn’t talk to anybody about it, because I felt so ashamed. I knew people would look at me differently, I was afraid people would judge me. During this time, I self-harmed, because I felt so angry and miserable about what was happening, and I felt there was nothing else I could do. Finally, I was able to tell my amazing best friend, and she helped me to get out of the relationship and get counseling. Having a friend to get me through this saved me, and it’s why I now want to help others and be there for you guys, as my friend was there for me.
I also know what it feels like to feel like an outsider. When I got out of my relationship, I realized that I was gay. I was 15. I was so scared that people wouldn’t like me, or wouldn’t see me as normal. When I came out to people at school, some of my fears came true. A girl asked me if she should feel weird about changing around me. I got stares every time I walked into a locker room. People told me that I should get religious therapy to change myself. I even had guys telling me that if I had sex with them, they could turn me straight. I never knew what to say or how to feel, especially since I was still figuring things out for myself. I was able to realize, though, with the help of others, that it’s okay to be who I am, and that everyone should be accepted. If you’re reading this, please know that you’re perfect just the way you are, and that I’m here to listen <3
Hey! I’m Megan and I’m 16 years old. When I was 5 my parents got divorced and that changed my life forever. It felt like my whole life got torn apart and I didn’t even know what was going on. Since then, my family has been trying to get out of divorce debt and it’s not only hard on my parents but my whole family at that. My mom has had some not so great relationships when she got out of the relationship with my dad. They would not only abuse us with words but he would threaten my mom’s life almost on a daily basis. My brother, sister, and I finally convinced her to get out and she is in an amazing relationship now. It took a lot to get away but we finally accomplished it.
As I approached high school, my friends started getting into drugs and a few got very suicidal. I have helped three of them to talk to me and helped save their life. Everyday is a new experience and if they had decided that was their last day, they would never know if tomorrow was better.
All my friends always come to me for advice whether its an outfit choice or a major decision, so feel free to come to me with anything! I will never ever judge you! I love you all!
