Unhappy not coping - February 12th 2012, 11:13 AM

hi, im 14 and have anxiety and depression. lately ive been feeling more alone than ever and people i thought i could talk to havent had the time or the interest anymore. i cant tell my mum or dad and im seeing a counsler but it doesnt seem to be helping. im struggling with minor SH and the only person who knows is my best friend, the one who told me to use this site, and she really wants me to stop. im trying the butterfly project but its just not working.i tell my friend everything but sometimes it feels like shes a bit sick of me and the whole situation and i feel bad for piling it onto her even though she says its fine. i really dont want to let her down but i feel so empty and sick inside and if im not at school or with people to distract me, i just dont enjoy life. im beginning to wonder what the point is at all.. like whats the point in even trying to get better or pretending to be fine.. please help?

Hey,

I understand how getting help/support can be tough at times. You definately have come to a great place for that. The chat room is usually filled with people that are willing to listen if you need anything. You can also, as you already have, contine to post on the forums asking for help and support. There's also the LiveHelp (when a staff member is logged in) and the HelpLINK (email based help/support) available at the top of the page. If all else fails feel free to send me a PM through my profile and I'll help you the best I can.

Hey,

Welcome to TH! I'm really sorry that you are going through this at the moment. I don't think your friend is sick of you, she just doesn't want to see you hurting anymore. It can be hard seeing somebody you love go through this stuff. Does your counselor know how low you are feeling and about the minor SH? If not, let them know, they're there to help! As for why it's not working, it takes time. Things won't get better over night but as you work through your depression/aniexty, things will start looking up! I know sometimes it feels like you don't have people around you to help you, but I'm sure people care. Sometimes it can just be overbearing on a person and that's why their not always there. But I'm sure they love and care about you! Just keep talking with your counselor and talking to your friends when you need the support! You can get through this! If you ever want to talk, feel free to PM if you ever want to talk!


all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
woah,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

<3

I'm sorry=( I've felt sort of the same thing before. I def. have anxiety and I think I may have some depression too. I have a best friend that I go to for eveything too. A few times, she's gotten pretty badly fustrated at me for how I am. But I know she is because she loves me. She just wants be to be happy. She's not sick of what im going through per say, she's just feeling overwhelmed at times. Its taken me a while, but my mom is looking into getting me some help. I'm not totally happy with that because im scared and don't know if it will work. But yeah..I think your best friend may be feeling that too. She may think she can't help you in the way you need to be helped and is upset not at you, but at herself for not being able to help more. Your best friend loves you hun, I know she does. But I think it would be good for both you and her if you were to get some help with what you are dealing with, help from a professional. There really is only so much friends can do. Have you spoken to your family about getting a therapist?
