Even with social anxiety, that's not good. You need to get out or otherwise your life shall be wasted.
Haven't you gotten a truancy report yet?
Personally, I think it'd be better to face your fears than to live a life with poor health and no education. But you know, whatever floats your boat.
Please try not to be so ignorant of the issues you comment on. Social anxiety is not something to be dismissed so easily. Also, being a hermit does not mean s/he is unhealthy or uneducated. In fact, s/he has better grammar and spelling than most high school graduates I know!
The OP said that they haven't been to school. Therefore, for the last two months, they have been uneducated.
Furthermore, if they have such intense social anxiety, they must be unhealthy -- mentally.
Even if you have social anxiety it's still unhealthy to isolate yourself in your room. That's my opinion.
There is treatment for progressive selective mutism, and I believe you're already receiving it. Just remember that the older you are, the more difficult this treatment is, because you eventually become more accustomed to being mute.
I do believe there's therapy for that. Maybe if you get in early on (like now) it'll help you in the long run.
Are posts that open with a question becoming the new "Little do they know" ?
Your not the only one
Oh, grow up.
That was incredibly rude. This person has come on here to share their secret without being judged. Then here you are, putting the OP down. Before you say ANYTHING bad about people, learn the facts. You do not know how this person feels, so you have no right to put them down. I'm offended by your comment, even though I'm not selectively mute. You should do a little research before saying something like that, ever again. "Speak" is a wonderful book by Laurie Halse Anderson, about a girl that becomes selectively mute. I'd suggest you read that before hopping to conclusions about someone with selective mutism being immature. S/he explained her/himself in the first part, and they should not have to deal with immature children like you insulting them. You need to shut up and learn facts before you do anything like that again.
I certainly didn't find this offending. All I thought of it was that they wanted to express their opinion/thoughts to the OP.
Ok, normally I like your comments, but this one has an actual medical condition attached to it. Kind of hard to grow out of those.
Admittedly, I didn't put a lot of thought or effort into that comment. Maybe as OP matures they'll grow out of the afraid-of-being-judged thing they mentioned.
Maybe your reading sixbillionsecrets too much...
There are loads of reason the thought of sex freaks you out, like your not ready to have sex >< Not everyone likes being touched, doesn't mean they were sexual abused, and men are scary to young children.
Why do people all jump to the "I must of been abused" conclusion?
You think hey. Well, think isn't the same as knowing.
Quick question... why is it always the uncles?
And cousins. Someone's always screwing their cousins.
If everyone only had one kid, we wouldn't have the problem.
And then we'd hear about people screwing their parents and friends and dogs and cows......and their Jack Skellington posters.
Maybe the uncles and cousins are just there so the above list doesn't happen. :0

go outside, at least there we don't have to read such imbecilic posts
Maybe you just think these things because you wish your life was more interesting.
Or maybe your just paranoid... or asexual... or lesbian.
Lesbian? OP could be a guy.
Then gay. Wait.......that wouldn't really work...
I just went full retard.

I'm pretty sure she's being sarcastic. Mocking the ones that take offense to stupid crap. And the ones that post "YOU GMH!<333" all over SBS.

Oh... THNX THEY, UR ALL BOOOOOOTIFUL
hey stop hitting on them! They never said they were going to wrongly accuse someone. You know it kills me to know that this is a place for people to share their secrets without getting judged and guess what, they still get judged! If I were you I would talk to your family, tell them your concerns. If they get mad at you just tell them why you think. Hopefully they'll understand.
"I think I was sexually assaulted as a child...."
Now. Thinking and knowing are two different things. You could really screw someone's life up if you wrongly accuse them of assaulting you.
Are you serious? I refer you to my comment on the other sex abuse one of these.
Don't ruin a man's life over something you think kind of might have happened. That's an accusation you NEVER get to take back. Stop being so selfish and attention whorish.
All of the things you described are normal. People touching you for a long time IS uncomfortable. Being scared of men as a young kid is normal and is more likely resulting from all the "don't talk to strangers" campaigns than from abuse. If you are young, sex will freak you out, that is normal, it is also normal to be intrigued by it. It sounds as if you are a completely normal person with no proof of abuse, stop looking for the worst in everything.
I am only pre-diabetic but my parents make me eat as if I were full blown diabetic and honestly it does suck in that aspect. I am a recovering annorexic and bulimic and because I too have to eat regularly to stop from getting the shakes or passing out, it is keeping me from my dream body (the same one as the OP's). To all of you here who are pointing out that being skin and bone is gross, please realize that to a girl who has never seen what her ribs look like and whose thighs have always touched and who gets her cheeks pinched because they are "soooo cute and chubby", a stick like figure would be a blessing. OP I feel for you and while I am glad that you are staying alive, I am sorry that you are not able to look how you want to. I just want you to know that you are beautiful to me and to please keep smiling because you will win the heart of a guy who will love you just the way you are.
I've never seen any of those things, and I wouldn't want to be a stick....
Just my opinion though. :]
*edit* Actually, the thighs part is untrue. It doesn't really matter, but it bothered me not to change my comment.

Spoiler Alert: Flesh and bone isn't attractive.
*Now I need Violet's profile picture to make the statement complete*
Edited 11 months ago
I don't think being skeletal is any more attractive than being overweight...
I'm a type one diabetic. I was underweight when I took shots. But you definitely aren't ugly. It doesn't have to define who you are as a person. And if someone has told you that diabetes makes you ugly, karma will whoop their ass soon enough.
>:c My sister is a type-one diabetic and she's a perfect weight for her age. She isn't even overweight (doctor says so). She's not UGLY and you can't even see where the needles go in her skin.
Stop being a bitch, type one diabetics AREN'T ugly.
She never said type one diabetics are ugly. Maybe she's overweight, and it's too late to fix it, and now she can't be skinny. Don't assume random things.
It's not too late to fix it healthily..in fact it's better for someone with diabetes to be a healthy weight. However starving yourself to look emaciated and have all your bone showing will definitely mess with your blood sugar levels.
"Too late to fix it"? My Aunt Dawnie has Type 1 diabetes as well, and she's lost over 120 pounds (she had a weight problem for most of her life). It's never too late to lose weight.
She said "It's so sad I have to inject needles in my skin every day to stay alive." in a secret about being pretty. She says it as if using the itty bitty tee-iny insulin needles are ruining her "pretty" skin, or as if regulating her glucose makes her fat.
Even if it WAS assumed, it's not too far of a stretch. OP sounds vapid enough to be somebody who'd say "diabetics are ugly".
having a meat on your bone is beautiful. Honestly, if your bones show a lot, guys find it a turn off. Being healthy is beautiful. <3 You are beautiful just the way you are.
Seeing bones ain't pretty. At least, in my opinion.
If being pretty is that important to you, you must be very shallow.
Some people need to feel pretty to feel like they are worth anything. Those of us who have always been overweight and always been teased for it and always have had to look at the skinny people around us and how happy they are, are the ones that wish to be pretty like that. Not many people give the fat girl a second glance unless it is to point a finger and laugh, this I am all too familiar with. So is it really that bad to want to feel pretty?
Those who feel worthless unless the are pretty, are shallow. While it's okay to have some insecurities about your looks, it usually takes much more than attractiveness to be happy. If beauty is all you need for happiness and confidence, then yes, you are shallow.
What do you think is worse? Feeling the need to starve yourself so you think you are beautiful or teasing someone so much to make them think they aren't beautiful in the first place?
I know just how the OP feels. I was teased so much from preschool to now which I am in year 11 for being fat. Which I know I am an average weight but I keep thinking "If I just loose a little bit of weight they will stop, that the voices in my head telling me I'm fat will stop. I want so bad to be able to starve myself but I can't because if I don't eat every few hours I get the shakes and pass out. I however am not diagnosed with diabetes because my mother refuses to take me.
If I am shallow for wanting them to stop and for the voices to stop, then yes I am fucking shallow.
Glad we came to an agreement. :/
I don't think you are shallow. Some people just simply don't understand what it is like to not be able to control the thought of wanting to be skinny. Stay beautiful darling.
Sorry but I just have to say this. Do you really think the teasing is going to stop just because you lost a whole bunch of weight? I honestly don't. In fact, I'm sure that if they stop teasing you about that, then they will just move onto something else. It may be your hair, your nose, your waist, or your toes. They will find something to make your life a little more shitty. Why? Because they need someone to tease. Which is why I think you should stop doing all this stuff to stop the teasing and instead do something to better yourself.
But, whatever. At the end of the day, its your choice and your life.

1. Healthy is beautiful. That crap you're striving for is just gross.
2. Stop whining about your Diabetes. It could be far worse.
I understand what you're feeling,( i'm type 1 as well) but maybe to help you stop this problem of yours you can eat heathy foods to bring your blood sugar up (fruits veggies etc)
Yes, it is so sad that you have to stay alive by being ugly. My heart cries out for you.
One of my best friends is type one diabetic. She has a pump, and no real weight problem. =/
She also doesn't revolve her damn life around it. She's a whole person, who just happens to need to check her blood sugar. It's not a pity party every time I'm around her. If it were, I would stop giving a damn. You sound obnoxious to be around, and like you think your disease is the only reason your life isn't perfect. Get over it. Everyone has problems.
first of all, you don't need to be super skinny to be pretty.
second, you don't need to be pretty to be happy.
third, the first part of this 'secret' has absolutely nothing to do with the last line, so WTF?!
last, this. is. not. a. motherf*cking. secret.
my mom is type one diabetic she injects needles in her body all the time and she is a big woman but that dosnt mean she isnt beatifull, its your personality that makes you beatifull not how you look
its so sad how i ran out of fucks to give for this 'secret'
You don't know this person of what they're going through so I wouldn't be like that. You might not care but I bet this person now feels even worse...
because of a comment on the internet? oh and i think the word your looking for is *or. And i really don't to kiss you...i'll pass on that.
Edited 11 months ago
People speak their mind on the internet; OP shouldn't expect any different.
For fuck sake, here she goes again.
i know a lot of people are putting up bad comments but mine, its going to be different. a secret is a secret. who cares if people think it is in question form. to me, this is wonderful, someone is finally standing up for people like me. yes there are other reasons, but the one you shared is one of the top ones. please dont listen to the others that commented on here. they are just doing this to put you down.
So the OP is allowed to put cutters down, but we aren't allowed to say that it's not a secret. Thats so fair. Well played. (sarcastically rolls eyes)
Actually, a lot of people I know just do it for attention. Sorry, but it's true. Also, is this a secret or a question?
Are you f*cking serious?
Even if I ignore the fact that it's not a secret, you still don't seem very smart to me. People self-harm for different reasons, not necessarily because they hate themselves. Is it really not clear to you?
And you are asking the internet because?
Obviously some people will.
Obviously some people won't.
You are a very stupid person OP
Yea, that's going to help her get over self harm. Good job.
I hate myself. I hate myself pretty damned often. I cut for four years, but I stopped because I didn't want to see the pain in my friends eyes every time my sleeve slipped. I still hate myself. There is no "point" that you get to if you cut yourself. Every single time you cut, you hit a new low. While you're doing it it feels wonderful. For me, I felt like I deserved it. But after, when you look down at what you did, you hate yourself even more. How this made it through and my real secrets havent, I'll never know. But if you're someone who never has and you're just judging, fuck yourself. But if you're questioning how you came to this "point" with the rest of us, be strong. I'm not going to tell you that i'll become easier. It won't. But you'll overcome it.
do you know how much hate and ignorance it takes to post such a harmful and horrible "secret"?
to make others intentionally feel worse about themselves?
do you understand how sad it is that you're a complete prick who has no sympathy towards others?
yeah, me either.
That was fantastic.
I feel like I'm being interrogated.
How did this make it through voting? Whoever voted yes you better comment so i can scold you.
Hmm... I came onto this site expecting sixbillionsecrets. However, it appears I've stumbled upon sixbillionquestions instead.
Ha! Made me laugh.
THIS IS SPARTZ!!!!! Heh. You thought I was gonna say Sparta.
That was extremely random
Why thank you, my good sir. (I DON'T CARE WHAT GENDER YOU ARE, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A SIR TO ME.)
I agree. Like, I know the "You are beautiful" crap never gets anyones attention, but your body was born precious. Your skin is new, your new to everything. Why would you want to destroy that beauty instead if destroying something else? Like, break something instead of cutting on your precious skin.. Do something else!
i understand,and honestly ,ignore the reast of the comments,because im tired of cutting being normal,and people mocking it ,it shouldnt just be for nothing
What shouldn't just be for nothing?
thank you! my gosh, i have been reading through these comments and i can finally say i agree with one...
*I, *rest, *I'm, *shouldn't. Also, correct grammar means that you have a space after every comma.
EG. I understand, and honestly... etc.
Do you understand that this isnt a secret?
Wait, how is this a secret? It sounds more like a series of questions to me.
That would be correct.
Do you know the amount of pride some people take in getting branded and tattooed? It's the same actions for a different purpose and with a different result. Not everyone is going to have the same exact emotional prompting to engage in a self-harm behavior. Maybe you should take a deep breath and either talk to whomever it is you're yelling at, or ignore them and move on because they're not worth he effort.
Kind of related story, my friend back in I think 10th grade in shop class that we had together decided he wanted to brand his arm one day. Some other people in the class heated up some metal and pressed it to his arm. His mom was really mad at him for it. It looked nasty for a while too. My friend also said it didn't really hurt when the metal touched his arm, it was just the days afterwards that it hurt.
This post is extremely irritating.
So I'm just gonna throw in a comment about how not everyone who self harms does it because they hate themselves. for some people, it's a coping mechanism for trauma. some people are just a bit masochistic and like doing it. Some people have other reasons for it.
Anyway, shut up, OP.
Are you fucking kidding me? -_-
