3. The Time Has Come
I started self-harming, I completely lost all of my self-esteem and confidence, I had depression, bulimia and suicidal. As well as, of course, anorexia.
I still have depression, and I still am suicidal. I still do everything else (except self-harming) but what I DON'T have anymore is anorexia and bulimia.
I was saved by my science teacher in my high school, and he changed my life forever. I am still extremely grateful to him for seeing through me and my mask and my lies. He saw through everything nobody else did.
He saw my scars I so desperately wanted somebody to see. He saw through the mask I had created for myself, and the helpless face I wore, he saw it. But most of all, he helped me get through it all.
I had no trust in humans at all, but he was the first one I completely trusted ever since the bullying and abuse happened. It took me one year and a half, but it was all definitely worth it. I told him everything. Yes, he knew I was definitely anorexic, but he didn't know anything else.
I wrote him 10 pages of the story of my life. Everything, the abuse, bullying, anorexia, bulimia, depression, self-harm, why I became mute, and becoming suicidal.
He helped me through everything.
