New Here... - August 2nd 2018, 04:07 AM

Please let me know if I am doing this right!!
My name is Abigail, I am 13 years old. I love singing and songwriting and I play four instruments (piano, guitar, ukulele and my favorite, the flute.) I am homeschooled. I love rainbows, glitter, unicorns, puppies, kittens and swimming.


I joined looking for support. I have been self harming (pulling my hair, hitting, scratching and pinching myself, as well as on and off cutting) since age 11. I also struggle with body image issues. Sometimes I am extremely depressed and unmotivated, and other times I don't sleep for a long time, and I am not tired AT ALL, and I feel like I can do anything. While I am not diagnosed with anything, multiple people have told me it sounds as if sometimes I am going through manic epsiodes.

I am too scared to tell my parents what I am going through.
Love,
Abigail (Abbi)

Hey Abbi.

As my welcome vm says my name is Frankie.
I write songs as well. I was also home schooled.

Do you have any dogs or cats?

If you ever need to talk, I am just a pm/vm away.

We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

Hey Abbi!

I just saw you in Chat! You're doing this right!

Welcome again to TH! It seems like you're super multitalented and creative! Which instrument was your favorite to learn, and which is the most challenging?

I also see that you've made a few posts around the site, so I hope that you've been finding that helpful.

Feel free to message me at any time!

Welcome, Abbi. I'm sure you'll find support and meet a lot of wonderful people here. Have you got any pets?

Btw. I used to practise the guitar and flute too, but in the end I gave it up because I started doing other things, haha. It's surely a fantastic skill to be able to play instruments, and you can play so many!
Have a good day and don't hesitate to talk to me if you ever feel like it.

Sue

Welcome to the site, I hope that you are able to find support while you are here. You mention that you are worried about telling your parents what you are going through, I am wondering if there is a reason? While it might be scary, telling them about your struggles might help you get to a place where you can get help.

Please remember that we are here for you and will support you and provide you with a safe place to vent.
