ugh. - September 10th 2012, 02:56 AM

i'm stuck in this cycle of depression again and i'm not entirely sure what to do about it anymore. earlier this summer was really rough for me and it just seems to be getting worse and worse. I honestly have nobody that I can talk to anymore about what is going for a variety of reasons...and I'm tired of holding everything inside.

It's gotten to the point where I've been cutting again, I've done it on and off for about 7 years. The one person I trust to talk about it, would tell my mom (which he already might have) which is ridiculous because I'm 20 years old, I would like to be able to choose who knows and who doesn't know. Besides every time my mom finds out she just screams at me. So, it's not helpful. I can't get counselling as I'm in college and I don't have a car. So I'm not entirely sure who I can talk to about any of what is going on inside of me. Obviously I am not comfortable at this point of time talking to my family. My friends don't really understand and the ones who I feel like I can talk to, obviously talk to much about it...and that really bothers me. I don't feel like it would be an okay thing or a professional thing to bring up with a professor, even though I go to a relativity small college where I could easily pop in at any time to one of my professors offices....

I'm just lost. Completely and utterly lost on what to do with myself. I don't know when the last time I've felt this low was without a support system. I'm doing this all on my own and I just don't feel like that is a healthy solution to any of this.

all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

Hey there,

I'm sorry to hear what has happened and that you feel you can't tell anyone, I understand talking to friends about these issues can be really tricky and that you feel they don't understand. It's a horrible feeling to have - you've already took the first step towards recovering by speaking up and seeking advice and you should be proud of yourself for that, it takes a lot of courage

It's best for you to seek professional advice about your situation and speaking with one of your professors could be beneficial, it's always worth a try and see what they may suggest

Does your college offer counselling? If your unsure ask a member of staff about it
If not, it might be best to speak to a counsellor and possible arrange for them to visit you if your unavailable to get to the location, alternatively you could ask your mother to take you if she has access to a vehicle
Another suggestion is to research the internet for counsellors who can counsel you online

Feel free to message me if you need a chit chat

Hope this helps in some way
