    Hi everyone I am fourteen years old and sometimes I really feel like a mess. I have emetophobia, social anxiety, depression, anxiety provoking perfectioism, major self esteem and trust problems, I cut and have lots of other small phobias (like mirrors, not waking up from my alarm clock,etc.)

    At the moment I am not suicidal but in the past few years I have had thoughts of suicide everyday and in the past few months I have hit serious suicidal lows four times. My best friend knows everything there is to know about me and the guidance counsellor at my school has recently become a huuuge help, I see her nearly everyday.

    I dont tell my mom hardly anything about me because even though we are close I have so much social anxiety I have trouble verbally speaking to anyone so the only person who knows what I go through is my one best friend. I think I am really weak, lame and a total freak sometimes because I feel like I shouldnt have these big problems with no big cause but my guidance counsellor is always reassuring me that its not my fault and I am not a freak but I just cant make myself believe it very often. I hate everything about the way I look, speak and act and whenever somehting bad happens no matter how nonrelated to the problem I am I find some way to blame it on myself.

    I was hoping that I could find some help and support on here for people who may be in similar situations as me because right now I am pretty much on my own and I am just spiraling down fast and Im not sure where to go from here.

    Sorry for the really long depressing sounding intro I guess I am just putting it all out there...sorry

    Hi Hailey. ^^ I'll be fourteen in September, which makes me mucho young to most of the people on this site. It's nice to see another younger teen on here once and awhile. I'm sure if you need any help at all, or even just want to chat, every person here would love to. I'm sure I would - plus, if you need any help or anything like that, feel free to drop me a PM or something, I'm always willing to talk. :)
