Hey guys. It's me again. my life is getting bad fast. I get about 8 hours of sleep on weekdays, but still end up drained by noon. Not to mention I'm feeling really Depressed as of late. Not like normal, but worse. I don't know where else to turn. I'm praying to God, but my heart is just not in it. Please help.

Heej Chad,

I hope you are feeling better today. Feeling tired is a symptom of depression, you can sleep what you want but still feel drained in a few hours.

But do you have something you can really put your heart in? A hobby, something that calms you down when doing it. I am saying this because it helped me a lot, and I am of similar age to you (18 now).

And can I ask you what the reason for your depression is? You don't have to write it down here if you don't want, but I advise you to explore it for yourself. You might find nothing, but thats no problem.

I have to go now, college is starting, I hope you will do better!

Hi Chad,

8 Hours sleep is what 'normal' people need to get through the day so if that is not enough then I think you have a problem. Have you spoken to a doctor or psychologist? Do you know what causes your depression? Are you able to give us more details about your problem?

Hi Chad,

I am sorry that you are going through such a hard time right now. But you have received some very good advice. Being tired is a symptom of depression.

But Chad you can beat this, you have come so far since being a member of the forum and I know that you will continue. Just remember stay in the moment. You will find that that really helps to sort things out.

Best wishes for a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

Hello Chad

No fair giving up devil   You need to see your physician or perhaps even some therapy is in order for you.

I know when you down it seems like you will never be up again but trust me, you will.

I think you are just being to hard on you and you would benefit from leaning to love yourself first.  We are here to show support and help you.

Keep Talking to us.

Sadly, things are worse. I sit with a girl at school and am too nervous to ask her anything. I blush when she's around and stutter with my words. I got a sore throught(?) and to top it all off, I fell asleep in all my classes. By the way, that NEVER happens!

Hey there Chad-
I was your age not too long ago. When I was, I was depressed. Still am. Believe me, things will get better.
I take it you're in high school? Really make the most of it.
 
Also, are you on medications? I know that it seems like medications are always the answer for depression, but I don't believe this is necessarily true. I have major anxiety, this i know. I also have depression. I take no meds.
 
One thing I recommend if you're not already doing so, therapy. Find a good counselor to talk to. I found mine in college. You don't always have to pay lots of money. How are the ones at your school?
 
It's understandable to be depressed with life, especially at your age. Things are starting to fit together or may start to fall apart. Regardless, a lot of change will happen. What you need to do is remember you are a great person.
 
To wash away my sadness, I try my best to laugh a lot more. It just truly makes you feel better. If you constantly have a pessimistic attitude, people will turn away. I've noticed that since I've been kicking the pessimism to the curb, I've been going out a lot more and getting much much closer with friends.
 
Don't constantly think about being depressed. Just go and live and love life. You'll be ok. And...we're here always.

BTE,


That was such wonderful advice that you had for Chad. And I love the way that you worded things.

Hi Chad,

It sounds like you really like this girl. I would take BTE's advice. Enjoy these years. Try not to think about the depression so much. Maybe you could write the girl a note. Even if it is just to say hi.

Good luck,
Hugs, Karen
