For a long while now, I ve wanted a therapist. My sister has one and my best friend has one and no one knows what I m going through. I ve always kept so much to myself and now it feels like it s killing me from the inside. Lots of times I ve considered cutting and a couple of times I ve stopped eating. Before my situation gets any worse, I want to ask my mom to get me a therapist so I can have someone to talk to. The thing is, I ve tried asking her once and it took me so much strength to do it and she put me down with 6 words,"Therapists cost a lot of money." Ever since then, I ve been so afraid to ask her again. Then one day she suddenly desides to give my sister a therapist. I ve tried to confide in my friends but I always get to scared. So, none of them, not even my best friend that I ve had for 8 years (I m 13), know what s going on with me. All my friends know is that me and my mom don t get along really well. Since I don t know what to do next, I m posting this hoping I can get an answer.
