This is an anonymous postcard sent in to postsecret.com which is an ongoing art project/statement. Anyone can send in a secret (always anonymous) on a postcard decorated as you like. It can be happy, sad, serious, funny... there are new ones up every week. Every now and then there is one that really hits hard. This one is particularly moving, and i thought it might be a good jumping point for discussion.

I'm told the link is not working for some people. The postcard is in a comment left by sweetlydistinct (thank you!). Or you can see it on http://postsecret.blogspot.com/ it's the first one at the top of the page.

This is not a discussion question, and I'm sorry about that. However, I need help. I was wondering if there is anyone in this community that is a grad student studying clinical psychology who would be willing to help me. I don't have access to therapy, and I am completely losing my mind. I've had an untreated (not by choice) eating disorder for seven years. I was hoping someone could help.

Lets make this a discussion question after all. If you are studying psychology is it mainly because of your own experiences, or is it for some other reason. How do you plan on being objective with your clients if you happen to share their experiences? Are you completely recovered if you are studying psychology?
