Okay an update about me, I guess. Yesterday I did something that I haven’t done in a while. I went to therapy. I knew it was something that was long overdue because I didn’t wanna be judged, worry anyone, or be defined by my mental health. I didn’t want my mom to find out about what I did to myself. Around three weeks ago, it came out. Then I told a friend in real life. The friend didn’t help much. Since the beginning of school (pretty much) I have been talking to someone online, everyday. If your reading this, I think you know who you are (Jamjam!!) You are the reason that I am alive. Suicide was on my mind constantly, but you helped me through it. Thank you. When I went to therapy, I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety, social anxiety, and dysphoria. I knew I needed medicine, I thought I wasn’t gonna get it, but thank god my therapist recommended it. I am going to see a psychiatrist soon to test what medicine I need through a blood draw. A big thank you to Dan and Phil, you have helped me so much. I got used to crying every night and feeling alone and hopeless. But you guys were there for me. You videos have made me smile and I enjoyed ii beyond belief. I hoped you realize that you have inspired me to tell my mom and get the help I need. Thank you so much❤️ @danielhowell @amazingphil If you are like me, then you feel sad all the time, scared of what people think, anxious to be noticed, needing to be saved and cared about, wanting to die but too scared to, then please go see a therapist, they will help, maybe not in the way you think they will. But they will. And PLEASE tell someone, anyone! If you need help then contact me, I’m there for you. You mental health does not define you. You are an existing person in this world who matters. You are not just depression. You are not just anxiety. You are you.
