In need of a bit of help
So my therapist told me that I should join an online group chat or forum to discuss the problems I'm facing. I guess I just don't really know how to go about living anymore. I've had depression for a very long time and self harm is a consistent problem I face. I'm not a sad person. If anything, I'm happy and energetic. I don't like feeling sad. It only makes me want to cut more. The other problem is I hate feeling weak, and that's how everyone makes me feel. As soon as they find out I have mental problems they treat me like a bomb and I really hate it. I just want to be seen as a normal teenager.
So I guess the help I'm asking for comes in 2 questions. What are some good outlets that I can use to keep myself happy? And how do I get people to treat me normally?
