i dont know what to do! im 16 years old and i have bin suffering from depression since the beginning of this year when my parents told me they were splitting up and my family just fell apart, now i live with my dad and mum mum moved in with her bf. i started to feel better and happier last month and thought that i was finally coming out of it, i was hoping it was just a bad phase i was going through. however, the last week or so have been terrible and i feel myself going back to my old ways. my parents are unaware of how much this has affected me, my friends are too busy and my exams in the summer didnt help. now im starting my a level courses but i cant concentrate, im so tired all the time and i dont see the point. i hate feeling like this and i want to do something about it but i cant talk to my parents and even if i did they would probably think i was just exaggerating.
please help, any advice would be greatly greatly appreciated!
 
hope to hear from you

hi nikki: i'm 47 yrs old and have been suffering from panic/anxiety for 7 yrs now-to top it of i also go through bouts of depression-there was a time when i didn't get out of my room for six mnths except to go to the bathroom and to get my pills at the psychiatrist(i'm not taking any meds any more) i lost a lot of weight because i couldn't eat-when i'm depressed i don't even feel like taking a bath-your parents divorce seems to be the root of your depression-you don't talk abt your symptoms but i suggest that if your depression is not allowing you to function normally you should tell someone-if you can't tell one of your parents, maybe a counselor at school-the thing is don't let the depression get the best of you-do the opposite of what your sadness is telling you-if it tells you to stay in bed-get up and do something-go out somewhere-if it tells you not to talk to anyone-call someone one the phone-that seems to work for me-i hope this helps a little-i will say a prayer for you nikki-you will be ok-believe me- everything passes-

Mom47, I have to tell you that I respect you for being able to pass on such a positive message, when you yourself are dealing with so much.   And Nikki, I'm working on approaching things as Mom suggests, by continuing to do what you need to, despite how bad things feel.  It's such a struggle, I know as I'm fighting through a similar kind of paralysis, but gather all the strength you have and keep going.  I'm sure that by doing so, you'll make your way through this.
