Boredom might not be the problem. You seem unhappy and unsatisfied. You try to feel better but end up choosing self-destructive methods such as binge eating. When you did finally try to tell someone what was wrong, your sister couldn’t help. Don’t be disappointed. Your sister is not a mental health professional and isn’t trained to help people with emotional problems. These kinds of problems require professional help.
I would recommend speaking to the school counselor as soon as possible. Be certain to report your binge eating. The school counselor might refer you to a specialist to help regulate your eating and to deal with any emotional problems.
Please don’t ignore your symptoms. Staying silent about your problems only makes them worse. Ask for help and start with the school counselor. With the right help, you can overcome virtually any problems that you are facing.
Growing up is hard. It is much harder than people recognize. It’s not a simple or easy process. There is much pain associated with the transition from childhood to being an adult. It doesn’t need to be so painful. With the right guidance and understanding, growth can be a much easier experience. Counseling can help you. It can provide insight and understanding into what you are experiencing. More and more adolescents are getting involved in counseling. In my opinion, they are the smart ones. Good luck and please take care.
