I have boogoos of problems and dont really know where to start. I guess I'll start here, I am 15 years old and my parents don't listen to me whenever I try to talk about something serious. I think I have social anxiety disorder or something else, but my parents won't take me to anyone to be sure because they think you have to be "retarded to go to a brain doctor" (not my opinion). I always say it's perfectly normal, but they stand firm on their opinion. Another one of my problems is at school, I have ZERO friends because of a false rumor that no one gives a **** to ask the truth about. The rumor was that I was gay and I definitely am not. I am severely depressed about this and am depressed all the time. I dont know what I am going to do anymore. I have considered but have never acted upon it. There are other problems but they would be a whole bunch to type right now. ANy help would mean a lot. Because no one else(except for one person who I have never met all the way across the country) really wants to help.

Hi there, Drew.

My name's Ivy. I tend to spend most of my time on the Crohn's Disease forum, but I do come to Depression sometimes, and I wanted to say hello so that you'd know that you are welcome here and that we care about you. This tends to be a quiet time on the forum, and you might find that you get more responses in a few hours, when the Americans wake up (I'm Australian).

First of all, please be assured that lots of really interesting and cool and happy and successful people found it hard to make friends in high school. You're stuck with a group of teenagers, and teenagers (as I'm sure you've noticed) can be incredibly immature and juvenile, especially when they're grouped together in a school. I found that I made my good, real, friends, once I left school, and you may too. Please always remember that being unpopular in high school doesn't mean you're going to be friendless for life. Keep hanging in there.

Do you have someone (outside your family) that you can talk to there? I'm thinking of someone like a school counsellor; a youth help line; a family doctor? It sounds to me as if you need an older person that you can talk to face-to-face to help you work out your problems at school and in your family. We're a pretty caring bunch here, but I think that few things can beat the support you get from a properly supportive friend in your real life.

Would you mind telling us a little more about why you think you might have an anxiety disorder?

Sending you lots of caring thoughts,

Ivy.

Hi there,

Yes Ivy has given you some great advice. I agree with seeing a school counselor. Everything that you say will be kept in confidence. Also journaling helps. Coming here helps too. It is easy to talk here about things.

I hope that you feel better soon. I just wanted to welcome you to the forum.

Have a great day/night whichever it is for you.

Hugs, Karen

I think I have social anxiety disorder because I hate being around new people, have trouble making friends (especially at my school because when someone new comes, they hear that rumor that was started last year and then they hate me). I can't use the bathroom at school or in public places very well (I wont at school), and other things.

I have tried to talk to a counselor, the counselors at my school are all people that I know real well or are friends of the family, and it's hard to talk to people like that.

I am having trouble in school due to the depression, I can't think straight. Especially after a girl I met on cruise I went on last week, won't even talk to me. I don't know why, I think it is because I am to clingy. I had such a hard time getting close to her and now she wont speak a word to me. 

I don't know what to do anymore.
 
Please no talk about self harm.  Thank you...
 
Hugs, Karen

The world does not hate you. You are just going through a difficult time right now. It will get better. Please go through depression resources and see if there is anything there that could help you.

Know that we all care about you here.

Hugs, Karen

Diabetes can be controlled, it is just something that happened to you. The world didn't cause it. You can take medications and get on a proper diet for this. So try to take care of yourself.

Best wishes to you.
