I hope you the best of luck and I wish to tell you that you can come to me at any time.Honestly, it's just really hard for me to even wanna do something these days. Most of the things people wanna do, it involves having more people around to help you achieve it your goal(s). I do sketch, a lot. But all of my outcomes of my drawings end up being depressing and suicidal. I try doing things, but again, nothing seems to work. My family honestly would rather have me try for emancipation then want me to stay any longer. But the thing is, I can't do it in my state. I feel like I'm trapped here and there's no escape. I've been kicked out so many times. Slept underneath trees, etc. I don't have anybody, literally anybody to talk to anymore. It's lonely. It's great at times. But it's just really depressing when you look around in the hallways of your school and try to talk to someone, they just walk away from you...

If you need counseling, anti-depressants, and you're being abused verbally, mentally, and physically; you need to get immediate help. You are in an unhealthy environment and it shouldn't be normal to you. This isn't normal and it isn't okay. Call 911 and get yourself out of that household.

So, not too long ago, I tried talking to one of my best friends and I was severely depressed and just wanted to end my life. I really didn't know what to do and I felt like I was down on my knees. So, I messaged her and told her that I just really needed someone to talk to and that I haven't talked to her for almost a month and a half, or so. She instantly snapped on me and explained to me that I cannot rely on my friends for happiness, now, before I go any further, I don't rely on my friends for happiness. But it doesn't hurt to have somebody to talk to from time to time, right? Anyways, so, I told her that and she replied back saying that I'm just too much for her to handle and too depressing and then attacked me by calling me ugly names and involved my other friends into it and I lost them as well. I'm feeling horribly depressed even worse than I did that day (which was two days ago) and I just don't know what to do anymore. I feel like I don't have any friends anymore. I feel like I don't have anybody to talk to. People are probably going to read this and either think that I'm just asking for attention (which is not what I want) or that I do have friends to talk to and that they are always here for me. But nobody understands that nobody is ever really going to be there for you 24/7 and it sucks, honestly. I feel really isolated from everybody, which is why I search on social media for friends and they all fail. I'm seriously begging for some advice on how to handle my depression because it's getting way out of hand and I'm only fifteen years young, going on sixteen in April. I'm running out of options. I've talked to therapists, left and right but nothing worked. I've taken medications but nothing has changed. I just want to throw my hands up in the air and wave the white flag...

How Often Does Your Family Exercise?

  • All the time - we're a totally fit family.
  • We exercise at least once a week - but we could do more.
  • Not every often - maybe once a month.
  • Never. We're a family of couch potatoes.
