Hi, im new here and i guess its good to have a place where you can spill your mind without having others you know in real life knowing, heres my story

Im 16 years old and i am currently doing a pre-apprenticeship in electro technology, most of my life is sitting in my room on the computer and i am slowly losing all my friends.. i havnt had a girlfriend for 3 years and dont know any girls anymore except for my family

all i want is a girlfriend, some friends and a good job but i feel as if those things will never happen, i used to have girlfriends, lots of friends and couldnt care less, now i am constantly depressed and extremely bored most of the time (especially during the holidays ATM)

if anyone could help me out i would really appreciate it , i feel like crap every day

i also have anger problems and possibly ADHD/Anxiety although i dont really like telling people about this stuff because i dont want to look weak and insane.

EDIT: Removed some parts after realizing you cannot talk about suicide on these forums. Sorry.

Hi Siobhan, thanks alot for the response, I'm Australian and ill definately try and get a GP appointment, I do catch up with my friends every weekend or so but we usually just smoke and play games, it's kinda hard atm as i havn't got my license yet and i am not the legal drinking/clubbing age yet, so thats probably contributing to my boredom. Thanks again :)

getting by

Hey Comik

Why don't you go down to your local PCYC and see what activities are on there? That way you can meet new friends, take your friends with you if they want to go, and also probably meet lots of girls, just a thought.

I am in Australia as well. I think its great that you're doing a pre-apprenticeship course, you must be pretty smart I think. How long does it go for and have you been able to secure an apprenticeship yet? I hope so as that would set you up for life.

You've got your whole life to go to night clubs and pubs, don't try and grow up too quick. I know it sounds exciting and you could probably meet lots of girls there but that is all ahead of you yet.

I hope you will keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

Okay that is good, but if he doesn't offer you one, he wouldn't be the only electrician in your area so you will need to put yourself out there, by that I mean ring and ask if there is any chance and maybe go and speak to him, you have to be a bit "in his face" about it, show that you're keen and of course he will want to see what you're like at school as well so study hard while you can and try and get the best grades you can. No doubt you already know that but I thought I would just remind you.

Good luck and try that PCYC as well while you're on holidays, you don't want to lose your friends. Keep letting us know how you are going.
