how do you do it? - November 12th 2009, 04:23 AM

Well first off i can see myself falling deeper into a hole, so i thought i would try something different, this. I kept convincing myself i didnt have a depression issue, until one day, my cousin admitted she could see it. But i feel like im worse. I feel like no one is worth my time, and i owe everything to everyone. I get sad and depressed over things that shouldnt bother me. i resent my parents because they are alcoholics and im not able to live with them. i have a loving home but iv hid all my emotions so long that they wouldnt understand, even if i told them. i have anxiety and stress 24/7.
how do you help your depression issue?
any suggestions for me?

I have depression that surfaces every now and then. Like you, I tend to bottle it up, which I DO NOT recommend. Make sure you see a counsellor or talk to a friend about it.

Personally, I talk it out with my boyfriend, maybe cry a bit and try to relax.

You need to remember that you are worth something and good things can happen to you. You deserve good things and you don't owe people because they're nice to you.


Happy to talk about anything and everything.

I go for walks or listen to music, or cry, or just talk it out with someone i really really trust. Also i have medication and that helps

It's so hard when it just stays inside and you are in a household that doesn't exact promote talking it out or anything. It's worse when someone else points it out when you really thought you could get by. It sucks to admit to it but it really is the only way to get out of it. I talk to people I trust, and honestly I talk to strangers sometimes (on sites like this) and I do take Lexapro. I find myself constantly on overdrive, I stress about everything and my girlfriend has said my mind goes 5000 MPH about every little thing. I write a lot of poetry, and submit it on the web and like to read other people's poetry. Not the glitzy stuff that gets published, the raw poetry of the teenage mind. I find it's much more relating. Music can be helpful but I find that I have to combine it with something else. But I would say poetry is the best, because it will never get old, and you can write about anything as many times as you want as many different ways as you want, and at the same time its good for people who can't express themselves well or don't express themselves. It serves all purposes. Hope this helps =]
