My mental state is always altering and for what reason? - August 23rd 2009, 04:10 AM

what is life, I feel like i dont get it. im happy in my head but I have a hard time communicating and rembering things that my buddies joke about. it makes me look stupid in front of my buddies. i hate myself for being so forgetful because they make fun of me for it and I cant join in on the fun. my friends joke around with me and it lowers my self esteem. I feel gay for not understanding them sometimes and then I hate myself for even thinking im gay. I have nothing against gay people im just sensative about that stuff because sometimes I dont know if I am or not. but im not attracted to men so therefore I confuse myself. i dont even know what it is im all wrapped up in. I wish i could just be like my friends and not be deaf, stupid, clumsy, quiet and just talk and joke like they do. but i dont see the point in it. I just want laughs all around. a girl who cares people the talk to about real things. I hate being a teenager in this era its so "GAY". anyone have advice? im all ears

dont be so hard on yourself. your not gay if YOU dont think your gay. Plus like you said your not in any way attracted to men. Well if you cant hear anything get like a hearing test or somthing maybe you need a hearing aid. theres nothing wrong with that one of my friends sisters has had 2 hearing aids since she was 5. Also if your on any mind alterting drugs i'd say quit them until your set with yourself for a while. yeah this era is pretty gay i hate it so much bowel shiz going on now and then...just remember to breath life instead of misconception..
Life is what you make it to be. When we think in our heads its action and then we react by carrying out ideas or shunning them in the first place. Its not that you dont understand life i just think your not living the way you want it to go. think about this, what do you do on a day to day basis compared to what YOU WANT to do and try to keep it real.Make goals for yourself. simple

Hey there,

It must be frustrating for you to feel as though your mental state is altering all the time.
It is good that you say that you are 'happy in your head', that is a very positive thing. It must be hard for you to have difficulties with communicating and remembering things and that you fear that it makes you look stupid. If you have friends then they should accept you for who you are - have you ever tried talking to them about how you feel? If you voice your concerns with your friends then maybe you will begin to feel more comfortable.
As for being gay then your sexuality is your choice. If you don't think you're gay then that's fine and if you do feel as though you're gay then that's fine too, it honestly does not matter. However, I have to point out that your sexuality doesn't have a lot (or anything) to do with your understanding of things. Some people do, however, use the word 'gay' as a derogatory term which isn't nice at all, maybe this is what you mean? Try not to worry too much about that.
Have you ever thought about maybe talking to a counsellor or someone else you trust about this? Maybe talking to someone about these things that are bothering you could help you, even if it is just your buddies rather than a counsellor or such.

Take care.

Hey there

Well firstly, I would just like to say that I am proud of you for coming on to TeenHelp and making a post, it can sometimes be very difficult to admit that you are facing some problems and want help.

Secondly, there can be many reasons why your mood changes. I would mainly put it down to hormones. Like you said as a teenager going through puberty life can be very difficult due to all the changes that are going on in our bodies. Hormones are the main cause of this and can make us think things are worse then they already are (sucks, huh?).

I do however think a lot of it could be down to your friends. I think you are a sensetive person and really take what people say to heart. This can affect your self esteem and cause you to feel "gay." I would try talking to your friends, and just let them know how you feel. Talking can really help

Finally, you should be happy with who you are. If you like the same gender, or both, or just the opposite gender it's about who you are, not what other people think!
