Well, my first post. Names Britt.
So basically i have so much and anxiety built up in my system from school
it drives me crazy it leads me to self harm and suicidal thoughts.Bascially anything to get me out of school. My parents wont listen to me on anyhting i want to do i have a month left of school and want my mom to talk to the adminstrators about homebound schooling for the rest of the year. (i have a diagnosis for severe depression and anxiety) My mom wants nothing to do with my idea and wont even try it. I want her to try it and he keeps saying no

I'm in the same boat as you except for the homeschool part. I've been having a lot of anxiety from school and other after school activites. I have become depressed often and cut myself whenever I'm really down. I too think often about suicide and how many problems it would solve. The only thing that keeps me coming back to school day after day is my friends. Although parents never seem to understand when they think they do, friends are going through the same thing most likely. Even though often I feel like I'm alone, there are many others close to me that understand. Try talking to your friends about how you feel and ask them to be there when you need a pick me up. It may be hard to go to them, as it was for me, but after you tell them they'll stop asking if you are ok two seconds and you'll stop having to lie. Hope this helps. People are here for you

Hey Britt,

First of all, welcome to Teen Help. I'm glad you haven't given up. Asking for help is a big step towards healing and having a better, less stressful, life in the future. Which, I'm sure seems impossible while you're in the midst of so much emotion right now, but life isn't always this hard. Just because it's hard, doesn't mean it's impossible to overcome. Learning to deal with things such as this is a great trick to living with anxiety and depression. Sometimes, we simply need to put up with the feelings. If we constantly avoid everything that triggers an attack, we'd be locked in our rooms for most of our lives.

As for your mother and father, I don't know why they don't understand. Maybe because they've never self harmed before. It's difficult to understand reasons for harming yourself when you've never thought of it yourself. Maybe you should talk to one of your parents at a time? Pick the one you get along better with and see if you can have a deep conversation about your school issues. Explain to them about self harm and anxiety attacks. Let them know how much it hurts and how quickly it drives you to suicide. Don't hold back important information, they might need to know all, coming forward is a much better solution then risking being caught in the future. Plus, this can help you down the road to recovery. Take your time and put your emotions behind your conversations. If you show how much you need to change, they might understand or sympathize more.

Finally, if they continue to disagree, finish out your final month of school. Things are just winding down until exams and you'll be out, free. It's worth the wait, it's worth hanging on for. Don't let go and give up all your future might hold. Don't let go and kill everyone else who loves you. We need you and the world is a lot darker without you. Hang on and try techniques to calm yourself. Possibly journaling, playing your iPod, drawing, anything that can keep you busy and calm, but also helps you vent emotions. I really hope this helps, if you need anything else, my PM box is always open. Take care.

~Stay strong and have faith.
