Unhappy I feel depressed and I'm not sure why? - June 13th 2012, 07:48 PM

Okay, so...heres the problem. Maybe there isnt anything wrong but I just really need someone to listen to me. I would really like that.

Sometimes, I get really down. It would come in waves and I would feel awful. I would cry, and constantly have this awful pain in my chest when i'm going through these phases.

Last year, I got into a huge fight and lost all my friends. I felt so alone and guilty and depressed. It was horrible. My nan also got really sick and my mam was distraught over it and basically, it was a horrible time for me. And I felt like I just described, this went on for months, even when I tried so hard to be happy and think positively, it just kept coming back. But its been a year, and slowly, i've been feeling better. I've set new goals for school and made new friends. But then, today, I started thinking back to when I was depressed and the feeling came back. I've been crying all evening and I have the same feeling that I just cant shake. Im really worried, I just want to a normal 16 year old girl that can be happy but I just feel so awful.

I tried talking to my mam about it, but she just put it down to hormones and she just didnt understand that that didnt make me feel any better. Im also so scared. I dont want there to be anything wrong with me. I want to know that maybe this is just me being a teenager, and that I will be happy. But I just dont know. I feel so angry at myself because I feel like I have nothing to be sad about anymore. I have a good life, good friends, good family, I have things to look forward to, holidays, concerts ect but despite all that, I just cant shake this feeling! I almost feel selfish because there are people out there going through horrible situations and then theres me, feeling depressed for no reason at all. Im so scared. I just want to be normal.

Is there something wrong with me?

Hey there,

What I've learnt is that you don't need an obvious reason to be depressed, sometimes there will be a reason like deep down you're still upset about your friends or something like that. There doesn't even have to be that much, it could be just a sudden thing

I know it's scary, I wanted to be a normal teenager too, but there are times when being different is a good thing. If you ever want anyone to talk to, to help you figure things out, or just generally want to rant to I'm here, PM me

Stay strong,

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
