Unhappy Can someone please tell me what to do? - January 31st 2010, 08:45 PM

Basically I'm a 15 yr old girl and I'm really depressed i have been for ages but i
i cry lots and lots whenever i'm on my own sometimes i dont even know why i haven't told anyone about this all these months untill recently it all got to much for me and i couldnt keep up pretending in school so i just broke down in tears one day in my English class but i just lied to everyone that i wasnt feeling well.

The other day i went to go see my school counsellor cos i just couldnt take it anymore so many nights of crying myself to sleep so yh i spoke to her i only told her a little bit i didnt relii wanna go into detail cos i'm really scared she might tell my mum or sumthing and i dont want her to know and there's this other girl, my friend kind of and she has bi-polar and people talk about her behind her back and i dont think she knows that so much people know but that's what my school is like i cant really trust anyone and i recently heard how my school counsellor is refering her to some kind of mental institute or something.

So now i really regret saying anything to her and really i still dont know what to do with my life i still hate myself the same way and i'm still reduced to tears whenever i'm on my own i'm really scared that i'm going crazy i really cant control myself anymore and i have no idea what to do

Well I trust that if your school counselor really is referring your friend to some kind of mental institution, and it's not just a rumor...she's doing it with good reason. I'd say that you should continue to talk to the school counselor, because any actions that she may take, are with good intentions and are to only help you, not hurt you.

I think that you should still talk to your school counselor. I think that if you dont want for her to send you to a mental institution or tell your parents then you should watch what you say to her bc if you say the wrong thing then her job is to help you and make sure you are safe which includes telling someone else so that you can get help

^However, typically (unless life threatening) what you tell your consellor is confidential.

Hey Natalie,

About three years ago, I was in the same spot you were. Asking for help is so, SO scary. It's terrifying. It may have been one of the hardest choices I've ever made.

However, the alternative to not asking for help is trying to continue to live like that... And yeah, it might be hard to ask for help, but do you really think it could possibly be any harder than what you're already going through? It's not. It's really not.

Just relax. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Talk to your counselor about what you're comfortable with at first. You'll learn to trust each other. There is no pressure on you to talk about anything. It's up to you, but I HIGHLY suggest you keep talking to her.

You're at a crossroads - You can either work on getting better (which you can start by simply talking to your counselor), or let yourself keep getting worse. I took the second road for a long, long time, and it's really not worth it.

Take care, PM me if you need anything!


Faith is that thing inside that you hold on to until help arrives.

i have an appointment with her tomorrow i'm really scared
but that's the thing when i first went to her i didn't even plan on saying all the stuff i did then it all just came out and i started crying i can't stop myself so i dont think i'll be able to control the stuff i say and i really cant let her tell my mum i think i would actually run away from home.

I was thinking like i've heard of drop - in clinics where you can get contraception and stuff does any one know if they have one for this type of thing so i could just talk to a doctor or something without me having to give them my details and stuff.
