I have mental health issues and I need your prayers.
Ever since I was 13 I was diagnosed with bulimia nervosa. I'm 18 now and things have only gotten worse. I'm clinically depressed and I'm also the victim of obsessive-compulsive disorder. I have been prescribed anti-depressants and mood stabilizers by more than one psychiatrist, but honestly I think they're useless. I pick at my skin (dermatillomania) for hours everyday. I know that sounds a bit funny and werid, but it actually causes me severe emotional and psychological distress. The picking has permanently scarred my back and face. I sought help from my father of confession, but he personally thinks that it's "self-deception", that it doesn't really exist, and that I should just "snap out of it". I also have trouble sleeping at night, getting an average of only 3 hours of sleep a night. My family is supportive, although they can get a bit impatient and frustrated at some times, which only makes me feel worse.
I'm losing hope. Every day I cry to God, yet I feel like He has abandoned me. I try to stay regular in my prayers and Bible readings, but I gave up when I began to feel as if I'm without hope. What is left for me to do? I don't want this struggle to have a bad ending. Please pray for me!
