Gathering Up Strength To Admit That I’m…

There’s this one secret I have successfully kept to myself for three years until very recently. Just a month ago, I have shared my problem with my boyfriend, Jhay, but made him promise not to tell a single soul, especially my family.

He kept his promise. I think partly because he doesn’t have any idea of the gravity of the problem, and because it was something that I said out of anger when we once had a petty fight.

We never spoke about it again after I gave him a reassurance that it was something I can handle by myself.

I lied.

Every single day is a struggle. I constantly remind myself never succumb to its manipulative power. Most of the time I won, but during the few occasions that I lost, I have always felt helpless, like there’s no way I can rid it off my system ever.
