Question Reoccurring relapse - September 25th 2012, 01:18 AM

I've been fighting depression all my life and lately i had been doing good. But after being told that "everybody pretends to care about me" that I "need sex to feel like I'm worth something" and that "i have to drown myself when I'm alone" by an ex-friend who I thought would understand me since she too knows the pain of depression, I went into a relapse and am still going through it. How do I handle the reoccurring pain when a number of things can trigger me at any time? How do I handle this when I have no one to turn to?

Hey there. I'm Kayla. And I'm gonna help you as much as I can.
First off, I'd like to thank you for trusting everyone here at Teenhelp to tell us your story. (Or part of it.)

I am so sorry that your (ex) friend did that to you! That was so wrong of them.

But you are not alone! You have all of us. We are here for you and I personally will be there for you whenever you need. Just shoot me a PM and I'll respond as quick as I can.
Having depression is one of the most complex conditions. I would know. I understand what you mean by having it most or all of your life. It sucks. It's hard as hell. But you're strong! You showed that by posting this. And I am so proud of you for doing so.
And this is hard, handling the pain. But you can. Just surround yourself with positive thoughts and colors and people. Start a positive thoughts journal. Reach out for support from everyone here. And that'll help.

And take care of yourself. I mean really. Take good care of yourself. Mind, body and soul.

So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."

What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?
