Question I'm Scared - December 29th 2010, 02:12 AM

so when i first started showing depression symptoms, it was because i hit my breaking point. i had been through so much, i just cracked. it was because what i thought was one of my best friends just turned on me. well i started speaking with said friend again and we started getting close again. or so i thought until he pulled the same stuff again. he just stopped talking to me and when i asked why he simply said i talked to much and he didn't like me at all. and he said i was "paranoid". he doesn't know about my depression or my "past" and sometimes i feel like he'd understand me better if i just told him. but i'm so scared he's just gonna hurt me again. and now i'm starting to feel so lost and hopeless, just like before. i don't know what to do. i'm just scared.

Don't be scared to tell somebody you have depression. Don't blame all your problems on it, but rather explain it to him. Tell him that you might come off paranoid but you're used to people leaving you, explain it from a personal standpoint. You need to take a risk - if he doesnt stick around, it's his loss. It's not fun to feel this way, and he could suprise you and understand

A true friend is accepting. They will love you for you.
I am sure that if you talk to him about it, he will understand. Tell him that you feel like people are walking away.
I bet you are AMAZING. And suffering for another, well you shouldnt do that. Yes he is your best friend, and he should understand what you go through.
Dont be scared. Talk things out, and if he wont be understanding, well thats his problem, that he cant handle it.
If you ever need anyone to talk to, I'm Always here.

don't be scared hun. just tell him. explain to him that you have some problems that he doesn't know about. he may not accept it at first but when he does he'll be there to support you and help you on your wayto recovery.
hang in there hun, it doesn't all have to be you on your own. let someone in..x

If he is really your friend, and you confess that you suffer from depression, he will stand by your side, apologize and help you through your life. If he makes you feel worse or doesn't stand by you, he's not worth it, as hard as that might be to hear.

Good luck <3


PM me anytime, I love helping people and will do my best to help you <3

I know life can be very scary sometimes. You should tell him about you depression and explain what goes through your mind. Being your friend he should understand that this is hard for you and if he doesn't and nothing changes as much as you would hate to you have to move on. When he knows you should be able to turn to him in times of need friends are Always a good thing to have when our down. The most important thing though is to hold your head up I and don't be scared I know you have it in you I'm sure your incredible.

sorry, i haven't been on in a while. i actually did tell him, but it didn't work out. we haven' spoken in a while, but it's for the best. i've been feeling happier since i put him from my mind and i think he's the one who lost something. it did feel good to say what i had to say to him, so maybe one day he'll learn not to treat someone else the way he treated me.
