Questions

I don’t know how to ask for help. I really really want to but it’s hard. I’m getting increasingly annoyed and angry at everything, I wake up I’m the middle of the night having panic attacks, I tried to stop cutting but I can’t, and everytime I’m just a little happy I reprimanded myself because there’s no reason I should be happy. I don’t want to go through the motions anymore. What do I do?

How old are you Daisy2001? If you are of age you need to make a doctors appointment and/ or if you are in college make an appointment to see a counsellor there.

I have just checked your older posts and seen you were sexually abused. It's really important you tell a counsellor about this. It is extremely unlikely that you have got it "wrong" like you feel .

I was abused and I felt for a long time that I was just making up a story which maybe wasn't true. This is the effect the abuse has on you ; it undermines you and you doubt yourself and often wonder if you were to blame or whether it really happened. This is why you need to talk to a professional (tell them about your confusion also as this will help them understand the emotions you are going through over the abuse) . You will be believed and they can help you process your emotions over these events as overwise it just surfaces as depression and other mental health problems.
