My Mental Health Comeing Out
So i decided to do this because there are some many people stepping out. My problems aren't near as bad as most but I still feel the need to share them. Disclaimer is that I have never been officially diagnosed with anything but you can just kinda tell with this stuff you know? I'm not diagnosed because I haven't told any of my family. I once tried to tell my mom about my depression and it went really bad. So that's why I'm talking about it here. Ok. Here goes nothing! Mild Mental Abuse: My mom is mildly mentally abusive. I really didn't want to say this for fear of her seeing it somehow. I'm super nervous as I type this now. But she is. Everything I ever do is not good enough and she tells me all the time. She is often screaming and yelling at me when no one else is home. About how I'm a let down and can't do anything good enough. This is the reason I haven't said anything to my family. Depression: When I was in 7th grade I became overwhelmed with severe depression. It just kinda hit me. I didn't want to do anything or talk to anyone. As soon as I would get home from school I would go into my room and cry and just sit there doing nothing but silently sobbing. It was so bad at points that I made several secret attempts at ending my life. I say secret because the moment I tried to tell my mom that I thought something was wrong she began to scream at me that I was just being an over dramatic b*tch. She actually hit me that day she slapped me a couple of times. I never told her anything about my mental health since then. So everyone I tried ending my life I was home alone. Each time I remembered though that things could possibly get better. They did. My depression is minor now but I still battle it everyday. Anxiety:
