Re: What's 'Getting help' all about?

For me I don't think I am getting help. I don't feel safe at home without my dad home. My Mum doesn't like me she thinks I am embarrassing to her. My friends always say that I cut my hair to be just like one of my other friends but I am not. Know one sees me of who I am I wish I had someone to talk to. I just hate my life so much and I don't know what to do anymore. I and scared, tired and I hate not being myself. When I am at home I am someone else, when I am at school I am someone else and when it is my birthday I am still someone else. I want to be me for once in my life and I want someone to like me for once for who I am. 

For me life doesn't go my own way I always wish that I could die. I just need help. I have been to so many wep sites and signed up for a lot of things but nothing has helped me. Help is all about being there for someone and helping them in the tough times and when there upset we can help them be happy again by seeing what is wrong and fixing it to make the not worry anymore or to make them feel good about them self. For me I am not getting any help but I help a lot of people and that just makes me feel like I should be grateful for what I have and what other people are doing for me. I just wish someone is there for everyone to help them out. For me there is know one but I have to live by that. But I can be the one who can help other people because life doesn't

like me and it never will. People out there need our help so we should stop worrying what we need because what we really need is to help other people to help our self.

Hi @Mia_2006! Welcome to the forums!

I don't have much to add but I just wanted to say that I hope things improve for you soon and that you can find something or someone that helps you. It can be so hard trying to find the 'right' kind of assistance. There can be a lot of trial and error.

I think it's amazing that you help other people whilst going through a difficult time yourself. That's such a caring thing to do. Heart
