I just can't. - January 31st 2018, 07:28 PM

I can't hold up any more, my depression is terrible. I had an incident with my dad last night and it really, really upset me. I actually cried and I never cry. He just doesn't support me, ever. No matter what I do it isn't good enough. Normally I just ride the depression wave till it goes away but it hasn't, it has lasted a lot longer than normal. I can't treat myself to anything because I don't have any money, and I've tried all of my coping skills plus a few extras and none have helped. I feel I've literally tried every coping skill in the book. Talking to my dad won't help, it never has. I've talked to him multiple times throughout the course of my life time but talking to him just makes everything worse.

I can't get out of this depressive hole - help?

1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

Hi Court,

I'm so sorry that you're struggling right now. It's always hard when you feel like you're so far down that you can't get back up. You have proven time after time just how strong you are. You're doing so well in school and I'm so proud of you for that.

What kind of incident did you and your dad get into? I hope everything is okay. Are you able to go see your therapist again? I know that seeing them helped you the last time.

I care about you and you're so strong!

“You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”

I'm so sorry that you are having a hard time right now and I hope that you will be okay soon. Are you able to talk to anyone about how you are feeling? A really good friend or a different family member to help you to be okay. Also try going for a walk or putting on music or a funny movie to help pick you up some. Or anything else that you like to do. Hugs.

I understand what you're going through.. I had the same problem plenty of years ago.. but the thing is that some parents just aren't good at expressing how they truly feel. You can talk to us if you want to rant, because some family members just don't know how to spread love and joy.

I hope that you can get through this.

Sending over warmth, love and hugs.

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.
