Taking the plunge - December 15th 2018, 06:24 PM

My name is Scott and I am here I guess to make friends if that goes on here. I am 16 years old and in the 10th Grade and from Canada. I grew up in Nova Scotia and now live in Ontario with my Aunt and Uncle. I have experienced a lot of loss in my life and the closest person in my life my Mom most recently in October. It has affected my life with depression since I was really young. I lost my dad when I was really young while he was in the military. Then just a few months back unexpectedly my Mom passed away from a Brain Aneurysm which unfortunately I got to find her lying in bed as I woke up to get ready for school. So I had to move over 20 hours away from where I grew up and had all my friends, went to school, and my girlfriend is. My girlfriend and I decided to stick it out because she is amazing, but everyday is so hard. So I may come on here and sound so down sometimes and other days I may seem OK. I just would like some friends I can talk to and maybe we can share some feelings if we get comfortable with that. I'd appreciate that. Thanks for reading this.

Hi Scott! I'm really sorry for your losses and that you had to go through all of that - I cannot even imagine what I'd do. We are here whenever you're ready to talk I'm Court, by the way.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

Hi Court and thank you. I have good days and bad days. My Aunt and Uncle and Cousin who I am living with now are going above and beyond for me, but it is still very hard.

Hi Scott, welcome! I am so sorry to hear about your losses, but I am happy you are living with family who are taking such great care of you. You've certainly come to the right place if you're looking to make friends or want to receive support and advice.

See you around!

Hi Jenna and thank you. It is hard but I do have good days too. My Aunt and Uncle have been great. I hope I can find people here I can talk with and make friends with. That is what is really hard having to move over 20 hours away from my home I grew up in and losing all my friends, changing my school. At least my girlfriend and I decided to stay together even though we don't get to see each other in person. She is amazing.

Welcome to TeenHelp, Scott!

I'm sorry to hear about the losses you have experienced, especially with your mom and dad, and being young. You've been through a lot and it makes sense that you would have good days and bad days. I'm sure you'll make friends here and I hope you feel comfortable enough to share your feelings on TeenHelp. See you around

Holly, it has been tough and I do appreciate your welcome a lot. I take one day at a time and try to put a smile on my face mostly for others to see. I definitely will utilize the forum more once I feel more comfortable.

You have no idea how much I appreciate that Lucy. When I Skype my girlfriend we always end with a big hug over Skype and it may not be in person but it does mean something.

I appreciate your caring words. I do see a therapist and am on a medicine for depression at least for now to get me through this time. Talking with my therapist helps as does my girlfriend but she is back where I grew up over 20 hours away which is hard. I also like engaging in things like playing Ice Hockey and going hiking or just even taking long walks. It helps clear my mind.
