Depressed - January 1st 2018, 11:10 AM

Summer holidays were one of the best moments of my life, but at the beginning of September everything suddenly turned horrific. I started a new school with a super positive attitude - I was sure my school would be great and I'd meet tons of news friends. Well, reality turned out different.
My Christmas holiday ends tomorrow and the thought of going to school again makes me utterly terrified.
Tomorrow I'm also going to submit an application to a different school, but there is no guarantee I will be accepted there. Even if I am, I'm also scared of changing schools...

Since September I've lost interest in all my hobbies. I used to draw a lot, read books, play the guitar, ride horses, ice-skate and study languages. Currently the only thing I still do is play video games, but I don't do it for fun anymore - I just want to kill time. Sleeping also kills time, but usually I can't fall asleep.

I haven't self-harmed since the beginning of July but now I feel it wouldn't even help. Everything seems indifferent to me now.

I see a therapist once a week but it doesn't change anything.

I am not 100% certain what has been going on at your new school but if you feel transferring would be a good idea than please do so. I know, when I started high school I transferred to a new school and the first semester was quite bad. I didn't make any friend's and was bullied. I figured that was probably how high school was going to be and than I ended up meeting someone in a class and hanging out with their friends. The bullying didn't stop but having people to talk to and sit with helped.

I am sorry that therapy doesn't seem to be helping. Has your therapist been able to make any suggestions regarding what you should do about school?

I am here if you would like to chat.

Well, people can be mean.. but these mean people aren't your true friends. There's nice people out there for you, and you deserve better. Its good to have a positive attitude.. but I do think that you should also rely on other methods instead of just school mingling to make friends.

There's stuff like game clubs, meetup clubs and other things out there for you.. and some of these people are older and more mature, making for a more stable, warmer friendship where they wanna have fun with you as well be your guiding hand truth life.

I'm currently where you are. A lot of the things I do have lost meaning.. I just try to do these physical activities to kill time. I also don't know how to be happy anymore so I really empathize with your situation..

But you're younger than me, and things can get better for you. Have faith!

Much kindness and warmth,

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.
