Hey all,
I've been feeling really really down lately. I need some sort of physical support, like someone I can talk to face to face, my own age. But no one seems to notice that i'm suffering. My mind just seems to be all out of whack right now and I can't seem to straighten anything out! There are a few friends that I could talk to, but i'm afraid that if I start to talk to them all the time, (Which is probably going to happen) they'll get either annoyed or lose intrest. I don't want to have that feeling on top of everything else. Even my closest friends don't seem to notice! I feel like I'm all alone here except you guys here over the internet. I'd like to talk to my mom, but right now i feel like i need to talk to someone my own age as dumb as that sounds. I just feel like everything is falling around me and I can't do anything to keep everything from falling.

I am sorry that you are feeling so down.
I would not worry about one of your friends being annoyed with you,if they are a true friend then they will listen and try to help.

Just remember that ones who do not have depression have no idea what the signs are or how to deal with it.

I also think you really need to talk to your mom. That way you can go to the doctor...

Hi Froggy,

Shy is right. True friends will listen, but sometimes they don't really understand.

You really should talk to your mom, she might understand more than you know. There seems to be an epidemic of teenage depression going on, with all the demands of life. You really should talk to a counselor, you have suffered long enough.

I hope that you feel better soon, and remember we are always here for you.

I understand what you mean about talking to someone your own age. I am lucky to have some really good friends my own age who I can bounce off... and in return they bounce off me. As Shy said, true friends will listen (although they may not understand and may ask questions sometimes if they dont understand). Try talking to your friends... if they get bored and wander off, what have you lost? They are not friends obviously. Also, are there youth support groups in your area? That might be something to consider as well... talking to people that are in the same boat as you are... they will understand better than anyone.


Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
