Hi. My name is Erica and I’m soon turning 16 (I don’t know if there’s a rule for how old you have to be to be here). I don’t know how this works, but I really want some advice. Srry if I’m to young to be here.
I struggle mentally, but have never gotten a “real” diagnosis. I used to talk to the school counselor and she said that I have anxiety. I am for the moment having a few appointments with the school nurse and she says I have depressions.
So, I’m just going to explain my situation and hope for some kind of something. Srry if this is “wrong” or “inappropriate” in some way. You can just ignore this if you want.
I tried to kill myself last Easter eve. I’m neither prod nor ashamed. My mother stopped me. Nothing happens after that and the only persons who know is me, mom, dad and some of my friends who have witnessed one of my breakdowns. We continued life as normal and don’t talk about it.
As I said. I have talked to the school counselor and nurse, but I haven’t said this. I want to go my 2 last years of school in Canada with UWC. I know that my mental health can be a problem and hinder it. That’s why I haven’t told the school nurse. I really NEED to talk about it, but I won’t risk my education.
Any advice on what’s best to do?
