hello im a 17 yes old girl. this is my first post... I've been crying all day, I usually cry a few times a week when I'm feeling sad and overwhelmed. I have some symptoms of something (not sure what) but everything about me and my past is something I want to change positively. firstly, I always find it hard to complete work, very hard to concentrate on everything even when my mum is talking I can't seem to concentrate on what she's saying. I think I comfort eat, I'm really skinny. I have no motivation to do work. I have very few friends, wish I had more. I'm very sexually active and there was even a time where I was in a situation where I didn't wanna do something but I still did it because I was scared of the consequences if I hadn't done it (think I said no once or twice)- no one knows about this... I've also got a bit of a rep for sleeping around. I'm quite mature and wise and I like to keep to myself so when I hear bad things about me it really hurts because I just wonder how immature and bad mouthing people can be. I wish I had more support from friends. my parents are the best but unfortunately I can't confide in them because I feel uncomfortable talking about things like this. so basically what I'm trying to say is I just feel so messy and down right now and I just feel helpless, can't confide in anyone and talk to anyone about my problems. I find myself to be socially awkward too, frustrating because all I wanna do is make more friends. I feel quite lonely... I'm good at giving my friends and family advice, I also love listening to people and helping them with my problems. I just feel like I don't have that from anyone. please tell me what to do or if I have some sort of condition going on here... thank you
