Hi mickey mouse 1234,

Welcome to the depression forum. It certainly sounds like you could be depressed. The best thing to do would be to talk to your doctor and find out for sure. We can't diagnose here, but your doctor would be able to. When a person is depressed they are likely to sleep a lot. Feel no ambition and they often cry a lot. And that is what you are doing. So I would have a talk with the doc and see what they suggest from there.

I am glad that you have joined us. This is a wonderful forum with wonderful members.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks for the welcome. I just joined this site 15 minutes ago. I cant talk to anyone about how i think i might be depressed. cause my mom and dad would not listen. they would just say its a teenage stage.

What about trying your school counselor? You need to talk to somebody for support.

Well, you are talking some here and that is good. There are various teen sites if you would feel more comfortable I can get them for you. But there are some pretty understanding people on this forum that could probably give you some advice.


I will be back with a small list of sites that you could go to. It is kind of slow here on the weekends, so there aren't a lot of members on, but during the week there are quite a few.

Take care

Hugs, Karen

You can talk to us here, why don't you tell us what the problem is, it always feels better when you tell someone. That is why we are all here because we have depression or problems at least that are making us feel unhappy.

So please know that we are all here to help if we can.

You sure are going through an awful lot right now. I am sure watching your niece is taking a toll on you. I am sorry about the person that is going to die. Is it a family member or a friend? You will have to deal with the loss of that person, we will be here to help you. But I really think that you need some professional help too. This is an awful lot to deal with. One day at a time is all that you can do. Take things as they come. Try to study so that you don't have to take that class all over again. And the boys will be in and out of your life, that is natural.

I hope that you start to feel better soon.

Take care,

Hugs, Karen

its like my niece is my daughter. she would rather come to rather then her mom. its fine about the person who is going to die. she is close to me even though i met her like 3 times. See the person who is going to die her name is peggy and she married a guy named bill his other wife died name was francis. Peggy lost her husband and bill lost his wife so they got married because they have known an cared about each other for such a long time. And I when francis died that was hard enough for me because I was really close to her. So I am really close to peggy and bill and they will both die really soon and then like 2 more people I know are also going to die soon. So I am gonna have a really hard time. about the boys that is so true but they just cause stress for me. Yea school is going to end in about 2 or 3 weeks so if I dont want to fail I have to get studying.

Hi there,

I am so sorry to hear about your friends. Though you seem to be handling it well. But if you feel you have to grieve about this, do so. It is healthy to grieve and normal to feel sad. It just seems like a lot for somebody so early in life. But these things happen and I do believe that we go to a better place.

Yeah, studying is so important. And you have to think about you. So you have to make some time to study and get your grade back up. If you were to talk to a counselor though and told them your situation, they might give you more time to study. Let them know that you are struggling to pass your class. Maybe they would help you out. Counselors often understand when somebody is going through all that you are going through. And they make ways for you to get extra time to take exams or to get things done. It might be benificial for you to talk to one. But that is your choice. I just want you to know that you have options.

Please take care. I am glad that you have posted.

Hugs, Karen

Hey Mickey

Gettingby has given you some really great advice there and also some good sites to look at. It is true about the boys, they will come and go, just try not to take on their problems, be a friend sure, but don't overload yourself with their worries. Can you study while you are minding your niece? If you busy her with something and tell her she has to be very quiet and make out it is a game she might be alright for a while and you might be able to at least get something done. Have you tried speaking to your mother about minding your niece and how it is encroaching on your study time?

about your friends dying, it is true we do go to a better place when we leave here and we are all only here for a short time. Sure you will miss them that is only natural. When it happens take time to grieve.

Try and get to your study, I know you know it is important and are probably sick of hearing it but it will get your mum off your back also.

Good luck with your exams and keep posting, let us know how you are going.

Mickey,

You have to talk to somebody, so share here. I know it is hard taking care of your niece. Have you expressed that to your mother? Does she care if you get an education? Let us know okay? Because I think you have a lot going on that is hard for you to talk about. You really need to get things out to be able to deal with them. It sometimes is easier here than anywhere else because you are anonomous. I don't think I spelled that right. But remember we are not professionals, we can just give you our oppions from our experiences. I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen

my mom knows and she cares.
so right now with all of that stuff going on i dont trust anyone enough to talk about it with because i know they will all judge me and make me feel even worse. i cant even call a hotline because they wont care. i have no one to turn to. all of my emotions are taking a toll on me and makeing me feel this way. i have so many different emotions going on at the same time also with all of my problems. i mean i just dont want to care anymore. i dont know whats keeping me alive.

Try not to think this way. You must care some, or you wouldn't be here asking for help. That is obvious. You just need some encouragement and for somebody to believe in you. And you need to believe in yourself. You say that your mom cares, why don't you talk to her then? She wont be mean to you or act like you are crazy. The counselors don't do that either. Believe me they get a lot of young adults that feel the way that you are feeling right now. And they are there to help us.

I hope that you talk to somebody soon. You really could use some professional support to help you to feel better.

Know that we all care about you.

Hugs, Karen

We don't want you to feel worse here. But we can't discuss self harm on this forum. I don't know if I already gave you some teen sites, but if I did, I will give them to you again. It might be more suitable for your needs.

I hope that some of these can help you.  Know that all of us here care about you and want you to be happy.  I think if you involve yourself in your studys you would be happier.  I hope that you are able to do that and get that feeling of accomplishment that you get from school.  You deserve to enjoy that.

Best wishes for a good evening.

 

Hugs, Karen
