Unhappy I am new and need help - October 25th 2012, 02:10 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Hi, my name is Sam and i am 17 and in grade 12. I suffer from depression and bulimia and anorexia...as messed up as that is. I am 45 days self harm free. but I have attempted suicide 4 times in the last 2 years, 1 time this month. I come from a very abusive family. I don't live at home anymore, I live on my own in my own apartment. I have no family and I have pushed away my only friend. I have no one. I was also sexually assaulted in June of 2011. At this moment right now I feel nothing. I am just numb...emotionless. I need a friend.

Hey Sam. Welcome to TeenHelp
I'm Emily, and I'm a buddy here. We help people become more acquainted with the site and its features, so if you have any questions about the site, please feel free to get in touch with me.
It sounds like you have been through a lot....but that's the thing. You've gotten through. I know feeling numb is a pretty crappy feeling. But celebrate the victories, even when they seem small---45 days, for instance. That's an incredible accomplishment, and you should be proud of yourself. Not only that, but you've gotten out on your own, which sounds like is probably a better and safer situation for you to be in, and you are still here. So. Know that you've got a community of people here rooting for you. There's a variety of forums you can post threads in seeking advice, as well as utilizing things like HelpLINK or LiveHelp for advice (HelpLINK is kind of a like an email system. You send in a request for advice, explaining what you'd like advice on, kind of like if you were making a thread on the forums, and then HelpLINK mentors reply to it. LiveHelp is kind of like a private chat with a LiveHelp Operator.) You can also blog and get your feelings out there, or go in the Support and Advice chatroom. There are a lot of ways to get involved around here. Seeking advice, giving it, or just hanging out.
I really hope that you're able to find support and advice that you find helpful. I know this place has helped me a lot. It's why I've stuck around so long. Keep on fighting, Sam. Sometimes it seems like we're all alone, but later on when we look back on it, we realize there's been people along the way helping us that sometimes we just have a hard time seeing because the clouds hanging over us are so dark and the weights on our shoulders are so heavy. I hope you'll reach out and put down some weights while you're here. I hope you'll see you're not alone.

Looking forward to seeing you around. Like I said, let me know if you have any questions or anything. Take care, Sam.

Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.
PM me anytime <3

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
