Hey, I'm Shannon.

Hey I'm Shannon and I'm 14. I was bullied in high school so I was referred to councelling. They then sent me to a special school for children who also have problems with attending mainstream school. I am currently stuggling with self esteem and confidence issues. I hate how I look and have a poor diet, I skip meals reguarly and I have a lot of guilt after I eat. I am always thinking about what I've eaten, what I will eat and how I look. I guess being a teenager that's fairy normal though. I came on here because sometimes I find it hard to discuss issues in my life with my councellor and my family and friends. I have self harmed in the past.

Welcome Shannon:welcome: It is tough being 14 (I remember well, even though I'm nearly twice your age). I was actually exactly your age when I developed an eating disorder also. Though I have "recovered" (i.e., I don't actually starve myself anymore), I still have a terrible time with body image. I never got help for my anorexia and wish I had. Please do yourself a favor and get counseling, if not at school then someplace else, so years from now you too aren't still struggling with this. Hopefully this forum will help you also!

:welcome:shannon
Astrid has offered some good advice.
It can be hard finding the right person to talk to and feel comfortable enough to open up.
Finding the right therapist,counselor,psychologist is the key.
You will know when you find the right one...follow your gut instinct.

Good luck;)
