This is xbittersweetx66... I left the community under that username but I kept thinking that maybe this could have helped. & then I saw some of your comments & I wanted to take your advice, so... here I am. It's kind of a nice feeling knowing that I'm free to write whatever I want, & I don't have to worry about freaking my friends out.
Um. I didn't go to school today. I get migraines, & I had a really bad one all day yesterday... It didn't go away until late last night, so my mom didn't make me go to school. That was nice of her, but now I'm wishing I didn't have to go tomorrow either. Or the next day. Or the next.
I never really introduced myself properly, so.. my name is Natalie, & I'm 17. I'm getting really good at hiding my depression from the people I care about, so no one really knows about it. I've never been diagnosed, & I've never seen a therapist.
Ironically, though, that is what I am studying to be.
Thanks for listening.
