Hi, I’m new to this site. I guess, I’ve kind of been looking for something like this for a while. Some where that someone who isn’t related to me, and doesn’t have a biased opinion can give me advice. I’m not suicidal at the moment. Never really have been seriously. I just want ears. So this is my story: In February, the guy I had been dating for the past eight months broke up with me because he is gay (and I am female). He claimed he dated me as a way of trying to confirm to himself of his sexuality. Don’t get me wrong, I am COMPLETELY pro-gay, and understand that it wasn’t his decision, it is simply who he is. And I’m cool with that. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt. Still. And that was in February. Shortly after broke up with me, I was diagnosed with depression. I tried to go to therapy for it, but I couldn’t stand telling someone I had never met about my issues(slightly ironic that I’m telling all of you strangers now). I then went into a bout with anorexia, which I had experienced before then, but never quite so badly. This lasted until…well, I still struggle with it today, but it’s not nearly as difficult. The worst of it ended sometime in May for no explainable reason. I’m on anti-depressants now, which help some. But now I feel like I can’t talk to my family without them disregarding my emotions for “just the depression talking”. Anyway, this post doesn’t really have much direction to it. I just….want ears, I guess. And want to help.
