I have completely lost any ounce of hope I once had.
For months now, the pain in my bones has increased drastically and the immense fatigue I have been experiencing has resulted in me literally living in my bedroom. My parents no longer believe that the cause of my declining condition is due to some random ailment that I did not induce. Instead, they have come to the false conclusion that my illness is some delayed side effect of my anorexia nervosa or it is just a physical response to my depression.
Now whenever I say I do not feel well, they just ignore me. They don’t comfort me or give me hug. All they do is brush it off as if I am nothing but an over dramatic actress conjuring up this plethora of symptoms.
I just am so frustrated. I feel like I have no one on my side anymore and I am trying to fight for my health on my own. Let me tell you right now, that is one hard battle to fight. A 16 year old girl only has so much power and so much knowledge. I can’t do this alone and I wish they would just listen to me.
