so i decided to tell my mom about seeing an actual therapist and using our health insurance for it and i got just exactly the response i expected and now my entire family isn’t speaking to me because i am seeking help for myself for problems they had a huge part in causing tbh but that apparently “don’t exist” and this is wasting money. 

money > my wellbeing 

so once again, i am shown that my family 

  1. 1. is extremely ignorant
  2. 2. unsupportive as per usual
  3. 3. only concerned about vapid shit

  9. cawowinnose said: I hope you can still get the help you need. I’m sorry that your given family is being unsupportive, but I’m happy that you have the support of others around you.
  10. katiejanekaboom said: i think parents get mad because they don’t want to feel like they are the reason why you’re going to therapy. at least that’s how it was for my mom. she didn’t want to hear about how it was helping me but she’s warming up. it pisses me off though.

  12. queenofthewest said: I wish mental health was seen as just as important as physical health. I wish we could the amount of wealth that goes into the weight loss/”health” industry into mental health awareness and services. then you wouldn’t have to go through this problem.
  13. westcoastfrustrations said: I’m sorry dear :( you really didn’t deserve that type of response
  14. golded-youth said: I’m so sorry Rachel! I hope they finally understand and see your side! We love you!
