I was miserable; I lived in a very toxic environment with people I never wanted to be around. I slept all the time, I stopped caring about school, I stopped caring about everything and became incredibly numb. I felt like I had nothing to look forward to and began to believe that life would be easier if I wasn’t here. I went to parties more often because that’s what everyone else was doing and they all seemed to be having fun. I wanted to feel something and I felt normal going to these parties, by the end of the night I usually ended up feeling worse about myself.
You don’t have to be alone. With places like the Atlantic Wellness Center being available to people like me makes it a lot easier to get help. I’m just glad I got the help that I needed or else I wouldn’t be here telling you my story.
