Question I don't know what to do. :/ - November 7th 2011, 08:17 PM

I've been through a lot.. self-harm, suicide attempts, depression, eating disorders and more. I'm OCD, and I'm prone to panic attacks. My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly nine months, and he's the one who helped me through all of my past issues. But finally, it's all catching up to him. He usually does a good job at keeping me happy, but sometimes I get in these moods where nothing he does can cheer me up. It's difficult for him to keep me truly happy anymore, and that makes him feel bad, so I promised him I'd work harder at keeping myself happy, and I have been. For the past month or so, I've been doing a really good job at keeping myself happy or content with the way things are. But lately, I find it's getting more and more difficult to keep myself happy or content. I try to be happy, but I just can't.. and it's really starting to affect my relationship. If anyone knows of anything I can do to keep myself happy more for a longer period of time, it'd be greatly appreciated! ♥

It'll all be okay in the end.
I promise. c:

Well, first of all, you should probably consider seeing a counselor, or a therapist.

Teen years are hard enough as is, and having mental health issues going on makes it even harder to go through. Seeing somebody who can give you better coping mechanisms, and help you with becoming a bit less dependent on your boyfriend to cheer you up.

Dare to be Different, to be Weird, to be a Freak.
Overall, Dare to be yourself.
