Need help with my depression. i think im crazy.

    • Need help with my depression. i think im crazy.

      I got horrible depression for some time now..

      I try to express myself to people close to me. but they still dont understand :/..

      When i explain people just think its normal.. but i know how teens can get "depressed" over little things. but im in deep.

      I have crazy thoughts of it too.. i think of hurting people in great detail at times. think about hurting myself.. (haven't done that in ages.. imma try not to stoop down to that level, and ive been good so far) and sometimes thoughts of suicide. i know i can do it. and at times im just itching to do something that im thinking about.

      people just comfort me like im just some teen who THINKS they have problems.
      I know i do. and people dont get that.

      The way i think worries about me too sometime.. i think differently than most. sometimes i feel like im the only person with a brain and everyone else is not seeing the world for what it really is.. its hard to get into detail.

      Anywho.. what should i do.. i want help. i know i need it. i dont live with my parents. im 17. and have no insurance from them. so i dont know what to do..

      going to my parents is not an option. people tell me to just go back. but i cant. theres no way im ever going to. thats not an option. and its something i dont really want to discuss.

      I'm not sure if it can really get better unless you talk to someone. Sometimes seeking help from others is tough, but necessary. If you really don't want to, maybe start going out and doing more, or hanging out with friends, or working on a project, or doing hard work in general. A lot of time activity will help, especially if it's very enjoyable to you.

      Dear friend,

      Depression is not easy at all...We know what you mean as many of us have been there...
      Let us first congratulate you for your courage to share your fears and problems with us and ask for help. This is a very important step in your healing, as it shows that you are aware of your problem and not afraid to look for a solution. You're a brave young man! Great!:)
      On the other side, let us tell you that, apart from death, every problem has a solution in this life...and you deserve a wonderful life, trust us! All you have to do is make some few little adjustments in the way you're living now and you'll see a real improvement soon.
      First, we dare to suggest you to stop living alone...I know, parents may be annoying sometimes, but they love you and can support you whenever you ask for their help. Your depression is their pain, as well, and we're sure that they'll do their best to help you. Just try to be more patient with them, listen to their opinions and talk openly with them. Communication doesn't mean yelling at each other, but exchanging ideas, words, calmly and patiently...Strong and inspirational people do that frequently and this is the way they have changed the world!
      Secondly, try to find something good to do in your spare time...People of your age have so many passions and this is the best time to follow them. What do you like to do the most? Are you a good athlete? A painter? Do you like writing? Dancing?Craftsmanship? Follow your passion and BE THE BEST, as that will be the way in which you can talk to the rest of the world. Don't be shy, don't think about people's reactions...just follow your dreams and become that incredible person you can be!
      At the same time, don't neglect your friends...you have many things in common. Go for a walk, to a movie or an art exhibition...Just be among them, as their presence will help you a lot. Even if you feel moody or depressed, try to be with them...soon, you'll feel much better and more confident!
      Let us know about how you feel...We're here and we care about you! Don't let pain control your life! You're young, strong and you deserve a wonderful life!
      Looking for hearing from you!
      :hugs:

      I feel like you're aware of the symptoms of your depression, but not the cause (at least, that's going on the information you've given us). I think that learning to understand why you feel the way you do will be a milestone in figuring out how to move forward. Whether you want to try and discuss this with one of us on here or with a counsellor is totally up to you, but either way I think it could help. I'm certainly here to advise as best I can.

      Might I suggest also that you do get a job? I think the responsibility will give you a sense of purpose and it will fill your time, as I know a lot of depressed people feel a great sense of boredom.

      I know where you are at I was 16 working from 3pm-12pm everyday while going to school. My dad bitched when I cut my hours so I could get my grades up and when I went and uncut my hours he bitched that my grades were sufforing. He told me multiple times that I would be better off just becoming a hooker bc I was to stupid to get good grades. I got to the point where I started cutting and planning on how to kill myself it happened daily. I almost did commit suicide but my brother walked in right as I was about to do it we didn't have locks on the doors. About 5 months into me cutting myself I finally showed my dad what I was doing to myself I begged him to let me get help that I needed help because I was 16 and wanted to die more than anything else. He said it was a phase and brushed it off... I went to friends their parents etc... Nobody listened they just thought I was doing it for attention. Honestly when I started smoking weed is when I started to feel better about things. It took me 3 years to quit cutting and what helped was I pretty much said fuck you to everybody that I cared about and decided that if they didn't give a fuck about me that I wouldn't give a fuck about them and I did what I wanted to do and etc... It's taken a lot of time to get where I am today but if your family and friends aren't listening Fuck them and find people who will actually give a shit. that is what honestly helped me.

      Laney, don't kill yourself. You are far more important to the people in your family. Who do you think it would effect if you were to go through this suicide? Everyone will be devastated. They might not act like they care now, but if you did this, think of how many people would be terribly upset at your funeral. please don't think so negatively of yourself. You are a beautiful bright young girl who deserves a second chance at happiness and self worth
