Throughout my teenage years I constantly struggled. My house contained an abusive mother and an abusive and non religious sibling. I was doing terribly. I had no one to talk to, was always depressed and slept through school. I was crying for help but no one noticed. Until the age of 15. Then someone took a look at me, gave me a hug and said i\'m here if you need me.
This person introduced me to the greatest gift in my life- my therapist. And no, I did not discover the right person right away. It took 4 years and 4 different therapists until I clicked. But boy is it worth it. She\'s not my mentor. She is there to help me understand myself, get rid of my pain and assist me in attaining my goals. It is super hard to do all that work, but it is definitely worth it. So if you feel like you can use someone to talk to, reach out. Ask your parents- if you can! Or you can call relief an organization that will give you a referral and may be helpful with insurance or funding.
Remember you are worth all that work

Jennifer,
Thanks for sharing a small aprt of your story- it contains so much pain, and it\'s great to see the happy ending too.
I like the reality check of not-finding-your-therapist-straight-away. It\'s important for people to know that it\'s not always going to be the first person that you have an appointment with.
Thanks again for sharing and KEEP POSTING! You\'re an inspiration to us all.
