I Don’t Know

I Don’t Know

I don’t know is the title of my life. I am 11, I am home schooled by my mom, and I think I have anxiety or I am depressed. I recently discovered that I get angry or upset a lot. Then when I do this sometimes I start to shake my hands fast or move my hands violently around. My parents don’t know because I’ve been keeping it to myself more. I also am upset at them for multiple reasons. None too bad though. I found out that they HATE gay people. I’ve been deciding if I am bisexual or not. But I’m still working it out and learning what my parents would NEVER teach me being home schooled. I don’t eat as much I eat twice a day and three times on a good day. I have little or maybe even no friends so no one to confide in. I also wont speak to my mom because when i asked her why she doesn’t ask why I wont eat as often she said that I’m DOING IT FOR ATTENTION. I don’t know whats happening to me and if I’m making it up or if it happened once and I’m just making a big deal of it.
