Wow thank god I read this comment. I too struggle like Matt with leaving my room. My pattern is the same I eat sleep and use the computer. I hardly leave my room or go out with friends. I hardly see my parents because i'm always in my room and when they try to talk to me seriously I usually shut the door on them. I do not mean to be rude even though it definitely comes across that way but I don't know how to talk about stuff or what I would even say. Like Matt I lie, I'd rather lie to my parents and say I feel alright today rather than "I hate my life and wish it was over because I don't get the point of it anymore?"
It would hurt my parents but then they'd also assume I was attention seeking which absolutely does my head in...I don't want attention! I want help...I know my parents are trying but its not that simple, especially when my psych can't even get my meds right.
Don't give up on him, i'm 20 years old and if my parents are thinking as you do, i'm screwed.View Thread
