Are you currently trying other ways to handle things besides sh-ing? Such as therapy or keeping a journal. Maybe sharing your efforts will help her understand too.
Slik has a good idea too. Find articles you can relate to and share them with her. I've also found writing an open letter to help organize my thoughts. Then you can give or share it with her. Explain how important the friendship is but this is personal struggle and you need support.
I hope your friend is willing to listen. Stay strong!View Thread
I am doing well. And of course! I am happy to hear you are staying strong. Cuz you are! It's always best to have a support system and your bf sounds like a solid place to lean. Hope all is well!View Thread
It's only natural to feel that way, especially considering the current events taking place. It also shows how strong your relationship is b/c you felt you could tell him. And he listened. Even though it hurt, not everything we say or feel will be best. But even though we feel alone, we dont have to fight alone. You have shown strength in reaching out. Keep it up!

is sharing here or in a journal a relief? I only recently started therapy, and it took awhile, but it helps. it gives me a set time and place that i can relay w/e is bothering/triggering me. I keep a journal cuz it is tough for me to recall what set me off.
and are there any other close souls in your life? i finally told a dear friend of 15 years this past summer b/c her life is crazy and I didnt want to be a burden. she was so open and loving. granted she was worried and a lil upset that i kept it from her, but understanding. people can surprise you.View Thread
