Help Me With Depression - June 3rd 2011, 12:25 AM

I am a teenager who is attending a Catholic high school on full scholarship. Because of this I feel a lot of pressure to succeed and it is slowly eating away at me. I also have not seen my father since I was 7 years old (now 16) and I am constantly thinking about him. I feel so depressed and angry that at times I feel like killing myself. I know I won't, but I think about it every so often. Nobody takes me seriously either because I hide my pain with a silly and happy exterior. Please help me deal with this pain.

Hey. I'm sorry you're feeling depressed. I know how hard it can be to deal with. You just have to know that it will get better.
Have you ever tried talking to anybody about how you're feeling? Maybe a close friend or relative, or even a counselor? It could help.

I have spoken to a very close friend who has suggested to make two lists; one with reasons to live and one with reasons not to. It has helped me get my priorities straight, but has done little to help the pain. I do, however, find solace in drawing and poetry.

Well that's good then. It's great that you have found something.
Maybe consider talking to a counselor though. They can help you with the pain.

I will. I haven't really opened up to anyone except the one friend. I feel like he is the only one who can help me, but I am unable to speak to him in person because we live several states apart. Before I talk to the counselor, is there anyone (besides parents) you can suggest I talk to?

Anyone that you feel you trust or are comfortable talking with. It's completely up to you though. It could be any relative, friend, or even a teacher or someone at your school.

I was feeling very depressed and confused, but I feel better. I still have a lot of issues I need to work out, but that was bound to happen. Thank you. Please be there if I ever need to talk to someone.

Hi, I know how that feels. When I was younger I always felt under pressure in school and at home. I also have issues my father whom I have no seen since I was very young too. Eventually me and my mother talked about me going to see a therapist. I was a little hesitant at first but it really helped and made me feel a whole lot better . So maybe that's something you could consider. I hope I helped . I wish you the best of luck

Hi ,

I am sorry you feel so down. I think its great that you like to draw it would be good for you to do things you enjoy when you are feeling down, i would suggest talking to a counsellor but also you can start with your local doctor. Talking about your feelings will help you understand them and give you stragies to help cope with them in the future. pm me if you need to talk

Thanks for the advice everyone. This has been really helpful. I have opened up more to my friends about it, and they have been very supportive and helpful. You guys have helped me a lot as well. Thank you, for everything.
