hello. 

making this account has been a huge, huge step for me. 

I am not sure what I will gain from it but I am hoping I will find something, anything to help. I am 16 years old. for the past two months since this event occurred, I have been fighting a mental battle that nobody knows about. I am constantly tired and searching for my worth. everyday, it gets harder to leave my house. and every night, I have nightmares that keep me awake for hours on end. 

I am on the last straw of my sanity. it feels like everything is a struggle. eating, drinking water, talking to my family, seeing my friends, taking a shower... everything is so draining and seems pointless.

I don’t know where to start. 

I just hope that I can start here.

Welcome to AS @Jayt I'm sorry for what happened two months ago and that you are suffering. It can be hard and feel like you'll never feel better. However, It's true that you can heal...I hope that by joining this forum, you could feel good about reaching out. Going through this tends to make one feel very alone. Best wishes on your path to healing. :notalone::supportu:
