Unhappy I dunno... - November 7th 2009, 10:14 PM

I don't know anymore...How am I supposed to live like this? I'm not sure I can anymore. People don't understand, they just say, 'get over it' or, 'it's not that bad'. I can't breathe, I can't think, I don't know how I'm going to survive. I have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) but this is the worst it's ever been before. Does anyone have any help as to how to survive? Please?

Strength is nothing more than how well you hide the pain

Hey Shara,

What you are going through is so tough. There's no way for you to just "get over" it. However, you can and will recover from this. It will be a difficult path, but it is so worth it in the end. Have hope; you are such a strong person. You WILL get through this.

Do you have anyone in your life whom you could speak to about what you are going through? It may be a scary thought, but talking about this sort of thing can help SO much. You could talk to a close friend, a family member, a teacher, a religious leader...anyone you can trust. Getting this feelings out into the open is such an important part of recovery, and can help relieve the stress of dealing with depression.

In the mean time, try to do things that can help you relax. On sunny days, spend plenty of time outside; draw with side-walk chalk, go for a walk, blow bubbles, take a dog for a walk. Getting your body moving is just as important as sunlight exposure. Other times, read a book, write in a journal, post here on TeenHelp, watch cartoons. Whatever healthy things you can do to help cheer yourself up, do it!

If you ever need to talk, I'm here. Take care.

"For the first time
in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

Hi Shara

Sounds like things are probably rough for you right now to be thinking this way.. I get told to get over it a lot.. But I do know that you just can't get over something so bad in the blink of an eye.

You could take the slow steps to recovery, which includes talking to a therapist, or going to the hospital.. Either way, they will help..

Keep your head up, and stay strong
PM me anytime

stronger than you seem,
