So after years of personal issues (depression, self harm, eating disorders, anxiety) I have finally decided to approach someone for help. With my final A-level exams approaching, I felt things quickly getting too much and as much as I don't want to, I recognise I need help. This is a big deal for me as I've never reached out before. I approached only supportive teacher I felt I had and she is aware that I want to speak but in my own time. She came up to be again today and I think we have arranged to meet tomorrow morning. I am terrified and have no idea what to say.I am petrified of the idea of getting professional help and I am don't know what will come out of this. I don't know how she is going to react or what to tell her. Also the last thing I want is my parents involved, however as I'm 19 I think this can be avoided. I just need help with letting go and just telling someone.
