Empty at night. - April 25th 2011, 09:38 PM

I felt really suicidal the day before yesterday, but I've been feeling alright the last couple of days. But when I'm not doing anything I just feel empty.

It's half past ten at night where I am and I'm exhausted, but I don't want to go to sleep. When I leave the computer and turn the light out I'll be lost. I don't want to self harm tonight or plan suicides or cry, because I can't think of anything wrong with me. I'm not abused or anything, there's no reason to be upset, but as soon as I stop focusing on something I feel so empty.

I don't understand why I feel like this. Most days I'm fine, although I'm overly emotional, but then when I'm on my own everything collapses. And I'm so stressed right now it's really not helping.

I just don't know what to do tonight.

Hey there.

I am really sorry that at times you feel so empty. It must be such a horrible place for you to be in.

You say nothing has caused you feel this way so I just wanted to tell you about a theory where a chemical imbalance in our brains can cause mental health issues. When this happens the thing which is most likely going to treat the depression is medication which 'equals' these imbalances out. Which means there is hope and it is manageable and curable.

For now, when you go to bed, why don't you read until you drop of, listen to music or keep the tv on just to make something else going on as well. I know I sleep better when I am doing when of these and it really helps me.

I also want to suggest you seeing your doctor to talk about therapy or/and medication. These might really help you.

Stay strong.
Jessie.

Thanks.

I really should go to bed. I think I'll sleep with the light on. That'll solve one problem.

If I go to my family doctor will my mum find out? She thinks I'm just trying to make myself interesting.

Hey

Sleeping with the light on sounds good. I know I can't sleep with it off! And because you're sixteen you should be treated respectfully with confidentiality meaning what you say or if you even go, should not be told to your mum.

That's good. I mean, if anything came of it then she's have to believe me, but right now I don't know what she's thinking.

I think I'll read a Harry Potter book tonight. Or one of my old kid's books. Something easy. Thanks for your support.
