Question Why bother? - February 24th 2011, 08:25 PM

Is there really any help you can get? Or is that just a lie.

I think there is tons of help that you can recieve. It's just a matter of wanting the help, and finding the help!

You have to go into help with an optimistic attitude. There are loads of people on here that can vouch for the fact that you can get help! You can get help through counseling, or therapy. Of course, you might get a counselor that you don't like/don't feel comfortable with/don't click. In which case, you should switch counselors. In counseling, you have to be willing to open up for it to work. Recovery from depression can be a hard, yet long one, but so much more worth it.

You can also get help through support groups. It's comforting to know that people going through the same types of things can help you out. Even changing your lifestyle at bit, or reversing all the negatives to make positives can really help. I like to try and appreciate the small things. Really getting yourself motivated can help you get better, as you have something to live for.

All in all, yes. You can really get help. You just have to want it, and go in with an open - mind.<3

yes, there is help. i found help when i needed it. you just have to be ready to take that step. talk to your family or a teacher or school counselor. i wanted to see a therapisyt but didnt know how to tell my parents so i found one online and emailed her and she called my parents asking them to bring me in to see her, so if you want help all you have to do is ask.

We do not fear death, we fear that no one will notice our absence. That we will disappear without a trace.
