Exclamation depression..near breaking point. - April 8th 2011, 01:39 AM

hey people,
the ins and outs of my reasons for being depressed and feeling so helpless right now would take too long to go through. what i can say is that the general reasons are because of my parents and my friends. i've got just about the strictest parents in the world in my opinion, and i'm grounded very often for protesting about the way theyve been treating me... which i and my sisters and anyone i ask view as unfairly. i dont feel that i'm just being a hormonal teen.
for a few months now i've been feel unloved, unappreciated, misunderstood, not trusted, and they treat me like a child. they dont see me as having any knowledge or experience or sense of anything. i've been really, really stressed out in the last month because of things that i cant tell to them. some of my friends are going through a lot of stuff at the moment, a few of them involving suicide and clinical depression. and i've seen some things recently that i would never wish on anyone. i've wanted to tell my parents about all these things but they'd stop me seeing my friends or doing some things, i'm afraid i may even be arrested for some drug use - i know my dad would turn me in to the police without a moment's hesitation if he considered it necessary. i'm so afraif that theyll find out about it but its kinda necessary to keep my spirits up sometimes...
i've been so stressed and depressed about everything, and terrified of my parents finding out about things that i just cant tell them without ruining my life.
i've been having severe panic attacks, unreal mood swings, getting depressed to the point i cant move or speak, self-harming, crying for no reason, not sleeping properly. i've been wanting to talk to people about it but not seeing how i could. i'm at breaking point at this stage, i'm afraid that i'll end up doing something stupid and severely injuring myself or at worst killing myself. i know i've felt the urge to often enough.
i've thought very deeply about everything at this stage and i know i need to talk to someone about it, but i know that i dont want any medical help.

i dont want pity on this, please just give me advice on what i can do, if you have any. it would be much appreciated. <3

Hello, and firstly, welcome to this website. From my perspective it is obvious that how you are being treated is of such horrible magnitude that it is causing you to feel this way, combined with the stresses of your friends' situations it can definitely result in this building anxiety you are experiencing. I suggest if possible that you try to speak to a school counselor or to call one of the local schools to see if there is a counselor available you can visit. If not I recommend researching professional therapists in your area which you could call on the phone or email. I am sure once you are able to find someone you can open up to and converse with in-person about what you are going through, things will begin to improve and you would begin to feel better. I would also suggest you tell your friends about this website as well, this site is a caring community full of people ready to listen, socialize, and try to help out with these situations. Usually people feel comfort when they are able to communicate with others who are or have been in a similar situation. Unfortunately I am not an expert in this field, but I know for a fact that you will be able to get through this. Please try to stay strong, and always try to remember that brighter times lie ahead.
