It's getting to me now.

For our a week my sister has been really mean to me, and I have been trying everything to just ignore it. And now today I feel like I want to binge eat, and I can't make her words go away. Not only do I feel like I need to binge eat, but I also feel so sad and very hurt because I haven't told anyone about what she has been saying to me over the week. I need to feel ok and not like this anymore.

I'm sorry

That things are strained and not going well with you and your sister. I know about keeping information from people when things are difficult with another person. I know how the words and actions of people can make me want to turn to negative coping skills like self injury, restricting or eating my emotions away. All this to say that you aren't alone. Are you seeing a therapist? If you are, maybe you can write a letter about what's going on and read it to her and maybe come up with a plan on how to effectively deal with this situation. Have you told your sister how her words affect you?

Hi

Thank you. I was seeing a therapist. But I stopped seeing her because she was really mean to me and said that I gave myself this problem and told my parents I'm making this problem up for attention. So my parents said that I didn't have to see her anymore and then my parents got too busy with work and friends and never found me someone new. I have told my sister many times that I don't like it when she is mean to me, she either laughs or says don't be so sensitive. I try to deal with it in my own way. But sometimes I don't know what to do.

Boy do I understand. My sister moved in about five months ago amd I have become so depressed and anxious. No one knows the extent of her cruelty. I was in the hospital. Texted her at 10pm I'd be home very late. When I walked into the garage which was open and she was there she started yelling at me why didn't you tell me you'd be out all night and you wanted to have me let your dog out. It was already 10:00. Anyways she gives me the silent treatment, very vague answers which to me are non answers. She is mean to me beyond belief but everyone else is sweet and kind and honey. And she is very nice. Just not to me. She twists and distorts truth. I am so sorry you are going through the same thing. I can say I really understand. It is difficult but we know the truth. No matter who believes it or not. Your reality is yours. Don't let anyone take that from you. That may help with your urges. Stand your ground. Not an easy thing to do, I know.

Hang in there. iwanttolive
