I have been struggling with anxiety and depression for about 14 years and self-harm and an eating disorder for 8 to 10 years. I have seen people in the past for counseling though I have not in about two years now. There are times I feel I am more capable of managing my bouts of anxiety and depression but other times I feel powerless and unable to overcome it. I recently lapsed from self-harm for my first time in about 2 or 3 years. Though my wounds are not deep, there is no hiding them since it was my face that I harmed. I feel afraid to go out and face the world in fear of people asking me what happened because I don't know how to respond, and I don't know what they will think. I don't know how to forgive myself for my actions or how to make things better. I don't know what to do and that is what brought me here.
