I have checked out the websites that hopeful has given me and I am no longer thinking of Suicide. I am still depressed and will talk more about it later.

Hi scholiosiskid, I am glad that the websites were helpful for you.  Depression and or whatever maybe going on in your life right now is never worth hurting or ending that.  Please do what you need to do to get help and get to feeling better soon.  We are always here for you...

When I do my exercises after school, I do them until I can barely get up! I am an over-achiever and always will be, but I feel it will never get me anywhere! I have been through a Divorce and have always secretly blamed myself! I have also been in countless fights because of my inner anger!

I have always been an over achiever too, I have the classic type A pers. which makes it difficult for let downs.  I most always blame myself for problems or anykind of turmoil within my family or social situations.

Do you mean that your parents have been though a divorce?  Of course when you have kids or are a family they all go though it with you.  My mom was divorced twice by the time I was eleven years old.  I have just went though my own divorce and know how difficult they are.  I think it is important for parents to communicate with their kids when they are going to divorce as no doubt the kids are going to feel responsibility in someway but, I am sure that you didnt have anything to do with their decision.  Just sometimes some people cant live together and feelings do change over time and it is much better to seperate then to keep hurting each other by staying together in a relationship that is broken.

You sound like a smart guy perhaps you can drum up the initiative to speak to one of your parents regarding your feelings.  Counseling is an excellent idea for parents and kids after divorce to help move on from this in a healthy way.  Many churches offer divorce care counseling which I think is free or little fee.

I hide the fact that I am depressed by causing fights to keep others from seeing my inner feelings! It is begining to get dificult to hide! This site is the only place where I can talk comfortably. confused

So good to see you posting again today and feeling calmer! I know it won't go away over night and it can get increasingly worse the longer you go with out counseling. I agree with you; this is the only place I can be myself and not be judged. You say you cover your depression with anger, I understand that but I wonder, does it really make things better than if you were honest about your feelings? Just something to think about. In the meantime, keep checking out those resources. Take care!
