Unhappy Promised help - November 14th 2010, 11:10 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I told my mom about a month ago that I thought I had depression, nd she said she would try and find me a councelor. As I said, that was a month ago. She hasn't even LOOKED yet. I keep reminding her. About a week ago she had to take my older brother to the mental health place because he had an appointment with some people about drinking and stuff (long story), and she said she was gonna talk to some people there, and see if she could get me one. The day after she took him I asked her if she talked to someone about me, and she answered "Oh, sorry, no. It was to crowded, no privacy." I just kinda looked at her in disbelief, and almost, ALMOST, started screaming "You could have ASKED to talk to someone in private!!!! This is getting really fucking serious!!!! Do you want me to kill myself and SAVE you the trouble of having to go TALK to someone so that I can talk to someone????" But instead I just shook my head and walked away. She has no idea how serious my depression is. I feel like I'm running on auto-pilot. I hate being promised something and then the other person doesn't pull through. Oh, well, story of my life........

If I smiled and said I'm fine, would you look in to my eyes, and say "Tell the truth"?

Hey there,
Sorry to hear your mum won't get you help. Could you just go to the doctors yourself and ask them to book you an appointment? Even if you just book the drs yourself it would show your mum that you are serious and make sure that she remembers
Good luck xx

As Georgia-Louise said, can you talk to them yourself? You don't even have to talk face-to-face, they may have a phone number, or even an e-mail address you can contact, and then when you get a better idea, talk to your mom. Maybe even see if they can have it when your brother has to go in next, so your mom has no excuse not to take you with.

Good luck, and don't hurt yourself because she's hurting you. <3

If you ever need to talk, PM me, I kind of know how you feel.

I know how it feels to be fed false hope. My own mother promised to find me some help nine months ago with no results even now. Talk to her again. Make the effort. Sometimes parents don't want to believe that there is anything wrong with their children. They would rather stay in denial than actually act on anything. Try to find help on your own. There are people here, myself included that you can PM or get in contact with. If possible you can also go to the office yourself and make an appointment if. If you ever need to talk you can PM me.

Besides booking yourself a doctors appointment like the others you said, if you are young enough you could go to a school counselor for yourself, or help confide in another adult who can help you more than your mom can. If your depression is that serious, then it should be taken seriously.

Your mother could be in a position where she is too stressed out even about your brother and doesn't want you to have a problem as well.

She is either being too protective of you, or trying to shelter you, and hope she can wait till the last minute. She isn't ignoring you, just worried that her baby girl could have problems as well, even if she doesn't seem like it.

Like I said, you can go and seek help yourself, and it would do you more good than your mom can, and as others have said, she probably will know you are serious and will eventually get more into it, or try and shelter you more.

Well first of all,I'm happy that you are getting help! (:
Well about your mom not getting someone to help ya' maybe you should write her a note and tell her that this is REALLY serious or were ever you live (like for me Florida) google where can I find a councler in Florida to help a child with depression....
Get some names and phone numbers and make a list for your mom and ask her to call and set up an appt. for you!!
I agree with CrimsonTippedPetals maybe she is stressed about your brother...who knows she may be depress too!?!

I hope this helps! Add me as a friend... Tell me how it works out!!

WHATEVER YOU DO please please PLEASE don't kill yourself think about your mom and brother and friends!!
Hope this helped!
Peace and Love

Allow yourself to develop in all aspects of life- cut out from toxic people and realize it's for the best. Love yourself endlessly, and even if you don't love yourself right now, fake it until you do.
