to the forums, and thank you for letting us in about what's been going on for
you. I too, am so sorry to hear about what you've been going through, it sounds
like you've been experiencing a very distressing time. Please know that you are
not alone, and you do not have to face your anxiety, loneliness or criticism by
yourself, we are all here for you.
saddens me to hear how your cousin has treated you, that is no way to treat
anyone, and the fact that she is viewed as an angel makes it even more
difficult. So please, this is a big deal, your feelings are valid and you
shouldn't be treated this way. I can see that you're suffering in silence, and
I'd presume this is because you feel alone and that you don't have anyone to
turn to. Like Sophie_M said, reaching out to your mother and letting her know
how you feel might be a first step to help you. Is this something you'd
consider doing at all? I know you said you don't want to look weak, but
remember, you are only human and it is understandable that you feel this way.
again for telling us your story, you are so strong to have the courage to post
online. We are proud of you for doing so, it's not an easy step to take, but we
are so glad you decided to take it. Please keep us updated on how you are
going, we care and are here to support you.
thoughts are with you,
