i im new i dont know what to expect but here it goes
im a girl who has been feeling really sad for the past year or so i dont knnow why. i put on my happy face for everyone when ever i get up in the morning. i have an ok life theres nothing really horrible to complain about except that i feel like i can do anything right and that ill die old and alone. i love my friends and my family thats why i feel like i cant say anything to them like ill be letting them down cause in my life im suppoes to be the happy friend/daughter/sister that everyone can come to when every they need some thing like advice or help with work or if they need a crying shoulder.i dont know ive taken care of my life pretty wwell up untill this year then everything went down hill for me(or i gess in my eyes) sad

Hi Chica3. Welcome to HealingWell. I read your post and wondered if there is anything specific that may have triggered your unhappiness this year? I understand the need to put on a mask and be strong for others, but at the same time, you need someone to be strong for you so that you can take the mask off and express your feelings. I hope you stay with us and am glad you found us. The people here are truly caring and will do their absolute best to help you.
Do you mind me asking how old you are? Teenager, adult etc?
 
Blessings and peace,

Hello Chica
 
Welcome to HealingWell and I am glad you found us.
 
I am wondering if something has happened in your life this past year that may have triggered your depression? I see Maz read the same thing I did in your post.

One of the best remedies for depression is to talk about it. Here's where good friends and family can come in. The old adage "A problem shared is a problem halved". coming here and talking about your problems was a very wise thing for you to do.
 
Please do share more with us and see if we can help you figure out what is going on.
 
Gentle Hugs to you
Kitt

I agree with Jamie, I think that it would benefit you to seek counseling. That gives us that shoulder and an objective view point. I think that coming here can help you also.
But talking to a professional would be a good choice for you right now.

Keep posting as we are all here for you.

Hugs, Karen

Counseling is a very private thing. If that is what you are worried about. And never be ashamed of asking for help.

Remember that we are all here for you too.

Chica,

Is there a counselor at your school that you can talk with?  I think it would really be great if you could talk with your parents, or one of them and tell them how your feeling.  It is very common to feel down so you are not alone my young friend.

Please know we are here for you fully and unconditionally. Would you consider seeing your family physician for a depression screening ? Anything you talk with your physician about is confidential.  There is no shame in having depression but I do understand your worries on how your peers at school would react.

You have been very brave in coming here and posting your fears and concerns.  This tells me you are looking for help so keep on talking with us.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

Chica,

I know this is hard for you, however, I am glad you are at the point of thinking about how to tell your parents.

They need to know that you feel depressed. Be very straight with them and tell them the truth about what you have been experiencing. Be honest with them. There is no other better way to tell them.

I do not know your parents but I cannot imagine they would be mad at you for telling them the truth about how you feel. I am sure they would be more upset if they knew that you were suffering and you did not tell them about it so they could help you.

My advice is to be honest and straight forward, tell them about the depression you have been experiencing the past few months and that you would like to get help. 

Please do keep talking with us as we are here for you.

Gentle Hugs to you,

Kitt

Dear Chica,

You have to make a decision and go with it.  You either keep all your emotions bottled up inside you and close out people who may be able to help you or you share with the people you trust.

Pick one and just do it, don't over think all the what if's?

If your waiting for perfect timing, there is never a perfect time.  (((((((((((Hugs)))))))))))))))

Kitt
