I'm stuck. - January 29th 2012, 09:56 PM

I'm a sixteen year old girl. The last month has been really, really hard. Before that, I've had ups and downs like any teenager, but in the last month I've been down more than ever. Given, I'm working through some relationship issues, so that's part of it.

I'm not suicidal, the future just seems so far away and so bleak lately. Also, a few months ago I went on the birth control patch for health issues,, and I've read that can cause depression... IDK if I'm actually depressed or if it's just another down, though.

I'm happy when I'm busy doing things (playing games, hanging out, even school stuff for the most part). I don't really look forward to them, but once I force myself to get involved I enjoy it, or can at least let go and relax a bit.

I've talked to a few people about different parts of what's bothering me, but it doesn't seem to help, it just makes me think about it more and thinking about it all the time just makes it worse.

Im sorry you have had a hard month.You could be depressed, but you didnt give very much information on how you feel sad. Is it a once a day, once a week, or a less or more often thing? How long have you felt like this? It could just be a short amount of time thing. But it might not be.
When you are feeling sad or depressed, try to keep yourself as busy as possible. You won't have a chance to be sad. Do the things you love to do.
Hope this help somewhat.

From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die
