Can I see counselor privately, without the consent of my parents?

I've been scratching and burning myself for three and a half years, and throughout the past semester I have also struggled at times with anorexic tendencies. Recently I've been feeling almost constantly depressed and it's hard for me to find enjoyment in anything. Also I've been acting recklessly, especially when driving. I have some very supportive friends and mentors, but my parents are opposed to me seeing a counselor. What can I do?

ask yourself questions like do people dislike me because im A fat B stupid C bad personality or D bad attitude. cause you can change all that if you try hard enough. if your unattractive. try to make it up by being athletic or smart fun to be around. hope this helps.

I don't think I'm unattractive, and I only have five friends, because I have an introverted personality, but they like me for who I am. That's not why I've been struggling with these things. For me, self harm is to cope with stress, and anorexia is to have control over something.

you can find other ways to have control over things for example i have the same problem so i write a story and i make it about my life so if want something to happen i write it like that so even though im not changing my real life it makes me feel better. hope that helps.

Mitchell that is not a nice way to look at people. Doesn't matter how fat you are a great personality will shine through. But you can be skinny & nothing will change your meanness.
