Yes I have the same problem. And I take what my family say to heart.

I'd be a hypocrite if I told you to talk to your mum about it, I know that I wouldn't. What about a doctor or therapist?

So much for that idea ...

Have you tried writing your mom a letter? Sometimes it's easier to convey things that way, as opposed to having a face-to-face conversation. If you really don't think you can, it's still important to talk to SOMEONE--teacher, guidance counselor, etc. You need support, and you deserve it.

I think that talking to a parent about your troubles takes time and a lot of effort. Eventually you need to find the courage to tell her, because she does care about you and could get you the help that you need. It's hard to seek help on your own, but if you feel more comfortable doing that then as Jen suggested you should try to see a therapist. It took a long time for me to tell my parents everything and they didn't get me the help I needed. It made me feel brave enough to seek help though. Do what you feel is right if it takes a bit longer to tell your mom that's fine as long as you do tell her. Good luck and please do let me know how things go for you.
