It's good to know I'm alone with the uncaring mother stuff.

And no, I don't really feel any better. I thought about it again at new year. Although I won't do it.

Now with people wanting me to change the way I am and a mother who makes me feel worthless, I'm miserable as hell. I do need to see my GP. I've tried counselling but found it hard to talk because I've grown up not knowing how to deal with my feelings and feeling worthless and unimportant. I suck.

Totally, utterly random.

It is hard to start talking to a therapist. But it helps. That's why finding someone you like, or who can help draw you out, is vital.

You do not have to change, just because some dork said you should wear frilly clothes. Screw that ****. I'd hang out with you and that wild kitten of yours in a New York minute.

PM me if you need to, okay? You are not alone, and I'm not going to let you sink.
