It's really hard. - May 22nd 2009, 05:22 PM

So I graduate from high school in about two weeks. And it's kinda freaking me out. I've been feeling so depressed lately--and like I'm not even physically here any more. I have a new boyfriend who knows that I'm depressed but even him knowing doesn't help. I haven't cut myself if a long time but I just can't seem to stop thinking about it.
Does anyone care? I don't think so. Sometimes I just wish a car would hit mine so it'll all be over.

Leaving high school is bound to make you feel a little freaked out - I think alot of people feel like that when coming to the point of leaving a place where your comfortable and have been for many years. It's understandable you're feeling it, too. But, leaving high school is just another step you have to take. A step forward onto bigger and better things, it's always scary and it may freak you out - but, it has to happen, you know?

I was relieved to read that you have only thought about self harming and not actually gone ahead and done it. What is causing you to feel like self harming? Depression? Or, other things?

I think you will have many people who do actually care, including your new boyfriend. Why not try talking to him, and make him see how you're feeling? Let him share the burden of your feelings a little? A problem shared is a problem halved afterall. Or, maybe you could see someone at your school and talk to them? Trusted teacher or a school councellor?

If you ever need a chat, about anything, feel free to PM me, okay?
Take care

And that was that.

Hey. I understand about being freaked out about graduation. I'm graduating tonight - I'm really weirded out. I've been waiting for this moment for the last four years, but now that it's here, I'm very, very opposed to the idea of graduation being tonight. How ironic. I guess that really goes to show that we should all cherish the time we have in high school because it passes by entirely too quickly..

Anyway, I'm glad you've told your boyfriend what you're going through - if you ever need help, he sounds like a great person to talk to since it seems as though he's been so accepting thus far.

I'm so glad you haven't SHed lately, Sarah. That shows a lot of courage and strength on your part, so tr to keep up the good work. Please take care of yourself. There are more people out there than you realize that care. [:

Hey Sarah.

It's really natural to freak out about graduating. I'm leaving school next year and i'm freaking out now. I'm terrified, to be honest with you. So yeah, you're not alone in that. You've experienced it though, you've had the experience of high school and I hope it was a good experience for you, on the whole. I realise it's hard, but it's just what happens. Time passes, we move on to new things, new experiences. What will you miss about high school? I'm sure you could maintain what you're scared of losing.

It is great that you have a boyfriend that you've managed to confide in, it's good that you've got support from him, could you perhaps try and reach out to him when you're feeling this bad? Talking about things could be really helpful to you, it's better not to keep things bottled up. It is a great achievement that you haven't cut in a long time and you should reward yourself for that and be proud of yourself. Self harm is an awfully difficult thing to control, but you're doing really great, Sarah.

People do care about you. You have a boyfriend for one, why would he be your boyfriend if he didn't care? When you're upset, it's hard to realise that people do love and care about you, but they do. Could you try and reach out to one of them right now? You're being so strong, Sarah.
