    (Original post by Philbert)
    Just how bad my depression got at my lowest point. They knew I was unhappy, and they were very supportive, but it would really upset them if they knew I felt hopeless and even suicial for a while. Now I'm just dealing with Generalised Anxiety and, like with the depression, I'm not sure they'd really understand and for now I think it would be better not to tell them.

    I've never discussed my sexuality with them, and unless I end up dating a woman/NB person, probably won't.

    I'll also never tell them that I completely and utterly hate the name they gave me, unless I do decide to change it after all.
    Is your name Phil? That isn't so bad.
    My name doesn't really sound like a grown-up's name really, so I'm beginning to hate mine.

    "I don't believe in this religion."

    If I tell them-
    -shame on the family
    -hurt everyone I love
    -be alone,
    -put myself first in front of my family
    -become a traitor to the communtiy

    If I don't, only I suffer pretending to be someone I'm not

    That I masturbate and have sent nudes.

    So many things. My parents seem to think I'm this innocent little boy when it comes to the opposite sex. I'm 18 ffs! There are some things I think they're acutely aware of too but but can't confirm. They're so dumb
