Unhappy I don't know what to do. - January 3rd 2011, 09:31 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I just feel really helpless. Everyone thought I was getting better...I thought so as well. But I'm not. I'm spiraling downwards again. And no-one can see it because I make everyone believe that nothings wrong, that I'm ok.
I had an argument with one of my friends on MSN today. It started with him apparently joking around by calling me a kid because I don't stay up as late as him and that I should "stay up with the grown-ups". I got really angry when he said that even though I knew he was joking. I said that I didn't want him ever to say that again to me and his remark? "Is it your time of the month?" I said that I didn't appreciate him calling me a kid and he said that I'll live. He said that I needed to grow up and that I was mad about nothing. He said that I need to have a nap and that I won't get respect until maybe tomorrow because I got angry over nothing. He told me to have a cry and that life is tough. He told me that he's seen a lot more worse things then me going through depression, that he's already compared his life to mine and that depression is like a stroll in the park when he compares it.
It made me so angry because he's never had depression before. Sure, his family might have gone through some rough times but he shouldn't have said that because he doesn't understand what it's like to have depression. I just really want to end my life.

Hey Rianna,

To be completely honest I think he was out of order to say those things. Ok, he might have had a tough time but so are you and I don't think anyone's troubles should be compared with anyone else's. Everyone's feelings are just as important and valid as someone else's and should be respected individually not compared. It's really good that you were able to tell him how you felt and that you didn't appreciate his comments and I'm sorry that you didn't get a plesant reaction. I think you've explained how you feel really well in this post, how would you feel about writing him a message just like you have here explaining how you feel and that you don't feel it was fair for him to say those things? You have every right to be listened to and respected.

It's hard when you're going through a hard time but yet you put on that front that everything is ok to the people around you Once you start wearing that mask it can be really difficult to put down again but you've been able to do that here which is a great first step and you're not alone. Try to look at how much good you do on this site and how much you're cared about here. I understand that on this site it isn't always the same as 'real life' but things aren't hopeless and you're definitely not helpess. You can fight through this.

You don't need to feel badly because of this guy. He's never been through depression so he wouldn't understand. You don't change based on anyone's perception of you. You are mature. You have a valid reason to feel the way you do. Depression is a very real very harsh thing to deal with. None of that is affected by people's words. Hang in there and know you're a strong person for fighting through this

I think what he said was out of order and that you have every right to feel angry with him. He doesn't understand what it's like, and therefore shouldn't have commented at all. I'm glad you told him how you felt and ever so sorry that he reacted like he did.
Struggling as you are, I can imagine this was the last thing you needed to hear.
The problem with everyone else thinking your okay, means the support and understanding you receive from others changes, try and bring those walls down, try and let people in so you can get some more support.
Look after yourself sweetpea and keep safe.

Immobilized. Captivated and Hypnotized,
by all your evil lies.
