Unhappy Quick Question ? :/ - October 27th 2012, 10:00 AM

I have had Depression for almost 2 years now, I use to feel more things like I'm ugly,fat,stupid,a loner, no one likes me etc. But now since I kind of feel like I'm happier without friends, I've isolated myself from people but in a good way I guess... Now I just feel very alone, people at school hardly listen to me, most just ignore me... , I feel like I'm dead or a ghost, because of how often my existence is just ignored...

And It feels like ever since I asked for help last year ( I asked my favorite teacher for help when I was in a suicidal state) that people have just started ignoring me this year, barely ever speaking to me and just treating me like I don't exist, people are just denying me any chance to feel like I exist or actually matter

Why are they doing this??????

Hey Janine, they could be doing it for any number of reasons. The first thing that I thought of is that, even if you didn't tell anyone, word somehow got out and people are avoiding you because of what happened, or what they heard happened, and they don't know how to approach you. The second thing I thought of was that sometimes depression changes the way we perceive things and it feels like people are ignoring or avoiding you when it may not be entirely true. I don't mean to offend you by saying that, but it's a possibility. I have depression myself and I know that I misinterpreted situations when it was bad.

I definitely agree with what Kate has said already. The two scenario's she said were what came into my mind when I read what you had written. I have bee told that I interpret things very differently because of the way I feel. I often think people are staring at me, judging me, talking about me and I think it's quite normal for people like yourself who are struggling with their mental health.

In regards to your teachers not really saying anything to you, maybe they understand that you probably feel emotional and a little sensitive right now and they think its best to wait until you go to them for help. If you want to talk to the teacher you spoke to before again for some help, then try talking to them. I doubt they will mind. In fact I think they'd want you to go to them and be honest so that they can help you with what you are going through right now.

You say you have isolated yourself from people in a good way but to me, it doesn't sound like a good way since you're relationships with people have started fading away which has been upsetting you, you say you feel alone and like you're a ghost or like you are dead and that you're existence is just ignored. I mean, to me, all of that sounds pretty negative and not a nice way to feel. Would you agree with me? Maybe it's time to try and socialise again. I know that when we feel low we often feel like keeping ourselves to ourselves id the best and better option but it can actually makes us feel even worse. Try to engage with people and meet up with an old friend or something. It might help you and if it doesn't, well, there's nothing to lose!
