Hi Famous
Welcome to the forum. This is a great place for you to vent,ask questions and give your input for other members that are in need.
I have a 16 year old son that is bipolar,I feel so bad for him because I remember how hard my teen years were.
Did the doctor put you on any meds? Are you going to regular counseling?

Good luck

Hi Famous,

I am a little older....lol. I am 44 and have major depression with several other things mixed into the cocktail. It is great that you have learned what is going on and are getting help now. It definately will not "just go away." I went that route :(......and would not advise it......

Hope you have a good evening

Hi famous..you have come to the right place for a friendly supportive bunch of people..well done ~ reaching out for help takes courage!
So..you love music..now there's a good start..do you write your own? can you immerse yourself in your music and forget the world - I can do that with my artwork..it helps greatly as a distraction from worries..do you belong to a band? do you sing or play a musical instrument?
Lots of questions I know..
Take good care.

wow thank you everyone so much for your responses =]

to answer all your questions: I am going to therapy once a week, but I don't really know how well it is working... My parents are pretty anti-medication so my therapist suggested an herbal pill called St. Johns Wort which is a mood enhancer, so I've been taking that for...a month now? Maybe a little less. But I think it does help... I want to get on actual medicene, though because sometimes the pill doesn't work and I feel so horrible... I want something that'll work all the time. I'm also looking into NueroFeedback [has anyone heard of this?]

And I do play guitar, piano and I sing in my school choir. I've never been able to write my own stuff though... Also, I am not in a band but I've always wanted to be. I don't think I'm good enough.

i'm really happy to be here, thanks everyone <3
