This is to help people - July 25th 2016, 06:16 AM

I struggled with depression all throughout high school. Apparently I had it in middle school but I don't remember how I felt back then. But my junior and senior year I struggled very bad. I cried almost every night. I had no friends. I hated myself. There was times when I was just pacing around my house crying and screaming while my heart was beating out of my chest. I very easily could have just took all the pain away. I could have taking lots of pills to make feel numb. Yea I did drink every weekend when was 16-17 years old(made me be able to be around family). The thing is here is I fucking struggled. I never thought it would get better. I didn't know how to make this anxiety and depression go away. I went to a physciatrist they gave me meds and the meds didn't make me feel any different. What I want people to know is all things get better with time. You should make attempts to make things better but they don't always work. You just have to know that one day you're going to improve. You have to have faith that one day all these things you wanted will happen. I had no idea how I was ever gonna have friends. But now I have friends and it's honestly a blessing. Over the span of a week or so things started to get alot better and I no longer struggled. You just need to have patience. If you're saying to yourself I've been struggling and waiting for so long for things to change, well you obviously haven't been waited long enough. It's an amazing feeling when things turn around and it's also a blessing.

Thanks max. That's honestly what I needed right now. I'm now thinking that things will stay negative and sads.. but I guess I need to try and try harder. Only after I've tried all I can, I might allow myself to die. But your words give me strength...

I hope that I can do what you did. I just hope that my fate changes for the better soon.


It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.

rant to me if there's anything!



As usual... pm me if you are ever having a tough day, and I'll respond immediately.

You guys deserve to be happy no matter what.. okay? You people are a bunch of lovelies ... and no matter what, you people deserve to be happy.

Hi Max,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us! I found it really inspiring and it will be something I think about when I myself am struggling. If you ever need a friend, my inbox, and i'm sure many others here on TeenHelp are available and here for you should you need it!

Way to go!

It's always so good to hear recovery stories. I know with this post, you will probably cheer several people up. I have had my share of depression (and bipolar) and I know how hard it can be. You're incredibly strong for coming out the other side in one piece. Keep up the good work, and if you do need anything you know where to find me
