    That sounds really difficult for you @Iris_Mizzy, especially since it comes randomly every day and you don't feel understood :/ Would anything, in particular, be helpful at the moment? <3

    Hey @Iris_Mizzy welcome to the mix :) I get how u feel and ik loneliness is such a shit feeling but we're all here for u! <3 I understand the not talking to people thing. Sometimes when I feel shit it feels like my mouth has been sewn shut because I really don't have the energy to even say 'hello' to someone. And I know it's a lot easier said than done but please try your best to be eating and sleeping well! Staying hydrated is also super important! I know it doesn't sound like much but it can really make a difference.
    I dont trust the people i live with and they wouldnt understand ive tried to explain it to them already.
    How come you don't trust them? Is there anyone else you could turn to like friends or a trusted teacher at school? You deserve lots of support and love! And I'm here if u wanna talk more about anything :)

    Sending hugs!

    I don't trust them because I've tried so many times and all the other times I've tried they ask questions and seem not to understand, get me someone professional to talk to on the phone or take me to a therapist when all I need is for them to just listen, but i end up leaving them confused or worried.
    I have to best friends but I don't want to worry them or push them to far putting stress on them e.g.
    I will try my best with eating. :)

    Hey @Iris_Mizzy how are you feeling today? I hope your Sunday is going well <3

    Sorry to hear they don't understand and don't seem willing to support you. It's great to hear you have good friends though! It's ok to rely on them a little bit, I'm sure they'd hate to hear you're struggling and feel alone and would love to support you. I understand feeling like a burden though and not wanting to put too much stress on them. What's the support system like at your school? Maybe they could help u?

    At my school its very complicated, I cant trust no adults there they will just report it to my adults, my adults will ask questions then its more likely it will turn into an argument. I've tried soo many times.

    Welcome to the community @Iris_Mizzy it's lovely to have you here :)
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
