I don't know anymore - April 30th 2018, 03:27 PM

Hi, ummm I don't know really what to say, or even how to say it right. But so I have been depressed since 4th grade and now I am in High School and it is like it has only gotten worse and it is to the point that I am scared. When I was little I heard voices and I saw things, well growing up it somewhat went away, but now it is back and it scares me. Also I just feel like I am worthless and I shouldn't be here anymore like I feel like no one wants me. Everyone that I know has left me counting my family so why should I be here? If I am not good enough and I am just a mess up? I have gone back to cutting myself and hitting myself, I know it is bad but it feels good to hurt myself. I have [edited] three times my last time was not even a week ago and it just doesn't work. I don't really want to be here anymore and I just don't know what to do. I have gone back to things I thought I never would I cut, starve myself, hit myself, block everyone out and just more. I know I am getting worse and I feel like I am about to let everything take over me and just let my Depression win.

I'm so sorry you feel this way. I know it must be difficult with the voices and visualizing things. Why do you feel worthless? I personally know you, and I know your family struggles. Not everyone has left you, Destiny. You have friends, like me. Is there any way you can try to help yourself? Perhaps instead of self harm, you can draw, write poems, or read books? You might benefit from talking to your friends as well.

If you feel you can't confide in anyone in our school, or in your family, perhaps try talking to one of the moderators on here? I'm sure they'd love to help you. And know that I'm also here if you wish to talk. You can check out some of the hotlines if you feel you should or that it will help. You can also check out the alternatives.

I wish you the best, Destiny. Try to take care of yourself and try to think positive. There are people that do care, whether it be in person or online. There will always be someone that is willing to try to help you and be there for support.

When the world drags you down, roll over and smell the roses.

I am so sorry that you are having a hard time right now and I hope that you will be okay soon. If you are able to talk to someone, it can help you feel a little bit better. Do you have a favorite teacher or can you try talking with the school counselor about what is going on? I know that when you are going through something it can be hard to open up, if you want to you can try writing down what is going on and give the note to someone and then you don't have to say it out loud and then they can try to help you.

When you have the feeling to self harm, try getting you're mind off of this. Going for a walk or putting on music or funny movie's, or like said up above writing poems or reading or calling a hotline. Or try going to a friends house if you can until you are not thinking about it. I hope that you will be okay soon.

I am so sorry that you are going through this. You are not worthless.That just sounds like the depression talking. I know when you are having family problems it feel like no one loves you, but there are people that love and care about you.

Have you talked to a therapist or psychologist about you depression and that you see and hear things, that you also cut and starve yourself? That may help a lot. You may be able to get on medication to help these symptoms.

As for the cutting are there any alternatives that you know help you? Here is a link to the alternative thread there are a lot of them and they will not all work. So you just have to be patient until you find some that work.

If you ever need to talk I am just a pm/vm away.
Your Friend,

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.
