Question Is this depression? - December 14th 2010, 02:03 AM

All I do is hurt. I get dressed for school and slip my clothes on over the body I hate. It's disgusting. No wonder he ditched ne. I would too if I could. I go to school. I don't wanna talk to or look at or be seen by anyone. They're nice enough. I have friends there. But I don't wanna be around them or anyone. I can't feel anything but hurt. All through classes. I can't focus. I get home and try to smile for my parents. But after a day of smilng for everyone at school I'm tired. I lock myself in my room. I just lay there on the floor. And try to sing all the pain out of myself. It doesn't go away. So I cut. And now all I feel is phsical hurt. Then I lay awake all night and try not to cry, not that I can control it lately. Then I do it all again. Not a moment of feeling okay

I promise you that you're beautiful. You say you disgust yourself but I promise you, you're the most critical person of yourself. Relax and try to not have to force a smile (easier said than done, I know, but from personal experience it's much more worthwhile). I take it you have very little self worth. Think of it like this, would your friends be your friends if they thought so as well? You're an amazing person and I promise all your pain is from your view of yourself and I also promise you that, as hard as it is to believe, not everything is your fault. I know making all these promises seems stupid or impossible to keep, but it's all a matter of perspective and I'm seeing you from mine

Re: Is this depression? - December 16th 2010, 04:39 PM

It sounds extremely similar
Back when i felt like that, i was prescribed with 'Mild Depression' but i knew myself that it was more severe than that.
I think we both know that it's depression but i really hope you will go to the doctors with this information.
I know it's scary, and when i got the guts to do it, i had a panic attack in the clinic room, but he gave me Cipralex and i got alot better.
I no longer have depression

How come dumb stuff seems so smart while you're doing it?
Good friends get drunk with you. Best friends hold your hair back when you've had a bit too much to drink!
There's no such thing as good girls gone wrong, only bad girls found out.
I've learned...
that maturity has more to do with what types
of experiences you've had and what you've
learned from them and less to do with how
many birthdays you've celebrated.

Hello there.

It seems that you could do with talking to somebody about it. Possible suggestions are somebody at home or a doctor- Your doctor should be able to refer you to a counselor; who you can talk over your feelings with.

Y'all are very nice but it seems you have misjudged me. I don't go to doctors with problems like this. I call my doctor when I have the flu or something. Nothing the medical types (that's doctors and shrinks of all kinds) can do for me. I have a miserable life not a seratonin imbalance. Thankyou though, it's really nice that you would take the time to give m advice

hellllo blair.
yes you have depression , i have / had that same feeling your feeling now.
if its not treated , it could lead to something worse like it did with me. i get what you mean about the whole doctor things. try talking to a councler or something. or to anyone you feel you can trust or good around.
it might help , i know just talking about things or writing them down always makes me feeel a little betteer or sometimes alot better. i know cutting helps it seems. but it doesnt , its reallly just a little closer to death everytime you cut.
i may sound like a hypocrite because i've beeen an cutter on and off for the past 2 years. but , i've also just learned that over the past few weeks.
but , if you ever need me or anything you can always PM me and we can just talk about anything. sure we all got our problems but im glad to be ablet o help someone else out and help them not going through everything i had to unless its your faith.
hope this helps you (:

It sounds like you could be depressed. But its important to know that Depression isnt just a straight forward, simple diagnosis. It affects everyone in different ways. There is help out there, and trust me, it will make you feel better. It will take time, its not gonna happen overnight, but you need to stay positive and listen to any advice that people give you. You ARE beautiful. Think positive!
