I think I might be depressed, I'm  not sure though. I've been this way for a while (since mostly ALL of Gr.7). I'm in Gr.8 now and everything seems to be falling out of place. I'm failing most of my classes because I just can't seem to concentrate or find the motivation to do any of my homework. I hadn't failed a test in as long as I could remember untill a couple weeks ago. I couldn't deal with it and attempted to write a suicide note. I decided I was a terrible writter and couldn't write anything good ever. I have also had trouble making friends (with moving around cities, houses and schools), in fact last year I earned my 'loner' rep. This year I have made a few friends, but its still hard. alI'm starting to "fall into" alcohol(my mom's, she don't even notice it's missing) and smoking(haven't done it yet but thinking bout it). I've also been "sexually-abused" by my mom's 52yr old on-again-off-again "bf"(who just so happens to be a longtime family friend). I also cut myself. . . . . anyway piont is I feel completely hopeless and I hate myself so much. I'm just afraid that this is going to get to out of controll but at the same time I feel like nobody can help me. I feel like I have no future and that nothing will ever get better only worse. How can I tell if this is depression or just "sadness" (also I started becoming "sad" (or w/e) before most of that crap was going on).

Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell.

It sounds like you have been through a lot in your life and I am guessing that you are only young at the moment. I am glad that you ahve found us. We are like one big family here and we all support each other when things are rough. Have you considered discussing this with the family doctor or a school councillor? Are you currently on any treatment for depression?

Hi Perfection
I too wanted to welcome you to the forum.

You are obviously asking for help..and I need to encourage you to talk to someone. A school counselor or a family friend,just someone that you feel comfortable with.

I too was molested at a young age,and was too scared to tell anyone. Now after all of these years I regret it.
I am mad at everyone for not noticing that something was wrong. I am mad at myself for not telling because I am worried that he had many other victims.

This man needs to be taken out of society and you need help NOW!

Take it from someone who has been there.. talking about it now,rather than waking up with nightmares for the rest of your life because you think he is going to come back after you.. is alot harsher.

Please stay with us,and keep us posted.
I know that this is scary,but you deserve better and it is your mom's job to protect you.

You have your whole life ahead of you,and so many options. Why let one man destroy your life and walk around like nothing has happened?

Hi Perfection,

Please don't hurt yourself.  You are young and like Shy said, you need to seek counseling.  That could change your whole outlook on life.  It isn't too late for you. 

I think also as Shy said, you could get it all out about the abuse and deal with it now so you don't have to go through life later with dealing with post traumatic stress disorder or the awful nightmares.  Please listen to Shy and get some help soon.

In the meantime we are here for you.  Keep posting as maybe we could have some other good ideas to help you.  A lot of us have gone through the same thing you are going through.

Alcohol and drugs only suppress everything and it just builds up inside and surfaces later.  There is no other way than talking about this to get it out now so that you can continue on with your life.

Just remember that we are here for you.
