Unhappy life really sucks - February 22nd 2012, 02:43 AM

well i have just recently been diagnosed with depression. i have my good days and bad days. lately more bad then good. i do cut and ive been caught but yet i cant help it, it sorta helps for a little. i go to therapy but honestly it makes it worse, she doesnt really help all she does is critize my girlfriend or just look at me creeply. it basically started when i came out and i started to get bullied then i told my crush i liked her and she played me and then hurt me in the end. i got a girlfriend from online but she vanished and the one i have now well shes my life but something is up and shes kinda like slipping away i guess. i dont want to lose her. half of me is saying i will and the other half is telling me think of the good talks and laughs we had together. school doesnt help the depression much either since i still get looked at like dirt cause my sexuality. my depression is affecting my health i barley eat and i lose a lot of weight and get sick a lot more easily which really sucks. anyways i was hoping to get some advice on how to act more positive in life or just get any advice to live through high school and stop cutting since my therapist doesnt help at all

Okay my suggestion is, switch therapists. Sometimes it takes a while for us to find the right one for us. Maybe that just hasn't happened for you yet.

Well, maybe you should take to your therapist about how you don't think she's helping you and that you think it would be better if you saw someone else, she should be understanding of that. That way she can talk to your parents about maybe getting you help elsewhere. If not, maybe just try and speak with your parents again saying it's about you and getting help for yourself and that even though they like her she's not helping you which is what this is all about.

For being more positive, just try replacing the negative thoughts with positive thoughts, that can be really hard but it can and does work eventually,also trying listening to happy music and doing things that you enjoy doing.

Cutting can be a hard habit to kick, so you'll just have to open with people about it especailly your therapist so that they can help you work to overcome this! Otherwise, when you get triggers do something you enjoy to disract yourself.

I hope everything works out, if you want to talk, PM me!


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.

i believe you can't stop cutting until you've solved the problems that started it all in the first place. I wish there was a way for me to change your whole situation by writing some well thought out words but I'm not a miracle worker. But I can offer support. message me anytime
In regards to all the people being jerks to you I can fully relate. The world is definitely filled with terrible people. But There's a lot of good in it too. But telling you that wont make a difference you need to be with people that are kind to you. and I can promise you that if you don't give up, some day you will be!
I have lived here with the realization of my being gay for a long time. Too long. I've put up with friends who weren't really friends and homophobia, and lies. But you know what helps me. Friends help me. I can be a friend to you if you want. We may be strangers but we have a lot in common. You are not alone and your hardships are not light ones. They are real and significant.
I find writing helps me. I can write myself into a place where I am happy and no one can hurt me with their harsh words. Could this be a tool for you to use?
I cannot stress the importance of finding a social network. People who like i said truly love you just because you are you! You may be limited in what you can do now but one day when you leave your home you will be able to go anywhere and be with anybody. People our age are so limited. It's like being in a cage. If you can just keep hope in your heart for the days you will be able to escape from your cage.

You are stronger then you think

Sincerely yours,
~will was here


flower
hello my heart where have you been
I missed you when you left
you ran away with that senseless boy
and left me dim and dry
like a faded flower in the mist

Come back my heart. you have a home here
In this place that is my soul
I want to feel like whole again. don't waste your time with him

Have faith my heart. You'll get a second chance
come back to me and you will not be alone

I'm really sorry about that! Is there any other adult that you could talk to in the mean time to maybe get some extra help and support? Like a teacher or school counselor?

You should just switch your regular therapist. Sometimes the school ones don't do much, but you are seeing a real one right now. Just tell mom that you want to see someone else. Happens all the time.

i feel so bad knowing you're feeling bad ! just tell your mom that if she really want's you to get better you should see a therapist you like and one you can talk to! and if you're feeling bad just PM me okay? promise? and when you feel like you need to cut, get a paper and write down what you're feeling, like get it all out. that actually helps! Please just feel better ! and don't worry too much about cj you have to focus on yourself okay? Love you giirrl ! StayStrong
