What to doo. - October 18th 2009, 08:14 PM

I've been very depressed lately, and nothing seems to make it go away. Usually I have my ups and downs, which I can handle, but I feel helpless now. I think I should be hospitalized, for suicide prevention. And fast. I cut, and I hadn't for a long time and I popped pills, trying to find some kind of happpiness. The only problem is telling my parents. And my dachshund, which is my baby, is very sick, and has to be monitored the next month and can't jump, because her back might break. Oh, and I've already missed too many days of school, so I have to make them up. And if I miss more then 8, I fail. Every class. I don't know what to do. I could probably just pop pills every day and I'd be good, but I'm trying to quit, and when I'm coming down I'm depressed and suicidal all over again, AND I feel like a failure. So it's worse. And my mom's really sick, she just came out of a coma, and probably not making it; so I don't want to stress my dad out more. She can't remember anything and she can't walk, and she's having seizures and it's just not good. My boyfriend can usually make me feel better, but I'm grounded and not allowed to see him. So, I only see him at school and talk online. I just don't know what to do. I feel like I'm drifting, and me being here is just pointless. Nothing feels the same.

Hey there,

I'm so, so sorry that things aren't going so well for you right now. First of all, I want to say that I'm so glad that you recognize that you're needing some help right now - I urge you to SEEK help while you still are realizing that there's something wrong. [: Try calling a hotline number - a fairly large list can be found here - [http://www.teenhelp.org/hotlines]. They can give you some direction about taking the next step and where to go from here and all of that good stuff.

Just know that there are so many types of therapy out there for you, and hopefully, your therapist will work with you to try something - medicinal, if you want that, or behavioural, cognitive behavioural, or just whatever until you find something that will start helping you to help yourself (since I believe that's ultimately what therapy is designed to do).

In the meantime, just really try to hang in there and know that for this down, there's eventually going to be an up to follow. Keep your chin up - I'll be thinking of and praying for (since I've been getting back into the habit of that lately - o_o) you. [: Take good care of yourself.
