my name is Louise and I'm 16. I suffer from depression and anger issues. I've tried things like exercise keep a journal read listen to music....the lists go on and on and on but I have tried everything everyone has suggested. I cant tell my parents that I'm depressed or even that I feel a little suicidal. my brother has made similar attempts but they never listen to him so why would they take me seriously. I don't feel like I can talk to my dad because once we got into an argument that was really bad and I said well maybe ill just kill myself and he said (excuse my french) "only pussys kill themselves ". I don't want to tell the school counselor or anyone like that cuz they will A stick me in a hospital which I don't want to happen and B want me to go to therapy that my parents cant afford. we are in such a tuff spot with income cuz we make to much for stuff like welfare but not enough for insurance. its so bad I never been to the dentist or check ups the only time I went my doctor was when I got shots to start school. I have suicidal thoughts but not to the point where I try it or cut my self. I do however feel that the only thing keeping me from committing suicide is being Catholic. Its a sin in my religion to kill yourself and if you do you go to hell. The only reason I would kill myself is to go to heaven sooner and get out of this world of pain but if I commit suicide I go to hell so that is what's really stopping me. I also get angry for no reason; even the stupidest things make me angry. I get angry to the point where I punch holes in the wall. Sometimes I get so angry I have homicidal thoughts or draw homicidal things.
also
my guidance counselor is a guy so I don't think he would understand me and I just cant bring myself to tell anyone. sorry to anyone if this confusing but its really hard for me to express how I feel . I was never good at doing that without confusing someone.The reason I joined was so I could have someone to vent to because I don't have that.

Hey Louise, I'm very glad you joined our little community
If you didn't already know, I'm a buddy here and I'd be more then happy to help you with any problems you have, so let me know if you need to talk.



I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons.
And maybe weíll never know most of them.
But even if we donít have the power to choose where we come from,
we can still choose where we go from there.
We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

Hey Louise, welcome to th!
You have come to one of the right places, everyone here is friendly and helpful.
It sounds like your family is rather non-supportive when it comes to those things. You should definitely talk to a counselor from school though, if you go to therapy or the hospital then maybe that's what it will take for you to get better. There is nothing wrong with admiting your depressed, suicidal or hurting inside, everyone at some point feels hurt in there lives, whether that's for a few minutes or a while, whether it's severe or not. You drawing homicidal things and having homicidal thoughts is really serious and needs to be addressed by a professional.
You should check out a few sticky's here on teen help, there are toll free hotlines you can call, the people you talk to are professional counselors and you can remain anonomous if you want to, the number won't show up on the phone bill most likely.
The sticky with hotlines is at:
http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f3-general/t22-hotlines/
I hope this helps you and please let me know if it does. I'll be here for you, you can private message me any time you need to and i'll do my best to help and i'll listen to you. I also like chatting for fun, so if you ever want to talk just for fun, you can.
Don't give up.
Christina
