Froggy is right, you have come to a good place. The people here are wonderful. You will be glad that you came.
Here are a couple of numbers for you to call, you can get more help there:
I would suggest that you talk to somebody, be it one of these numbers, or a counselor at school. You definately need to get some help with this.
In the meantime, keep posting because we are here for you.
Hi there Unseen and Welcome to Healingwell,
It certainly sounds like it could be the beginnings of depression. Its important to remember that depression is not a constant thing... people with depression have good days and bad days (As anyone on here will testify). The good thing is that the earlier you start doing something about it (I.e. looking at the cause, having therapy sessions, starting a course of meds etc...) the easier it is to sort out. Its important that you communicate what is going on with your doctor and your parents. A problem shared is a problem halved. Perhaps your sister can be a source of support for you if she has experienced the same thing?
Please keep talking to us so that we can help you.
"Healing is an energy phenomenon. Hope is another word for Healing. "Cracks in the concrete are just reminders that you fall apart no matter how strong you are""Sometimes it is best to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve""Im going to smile like nothing is wrong, talk like everything is perfect, act like its all a dream, and pretend its not hurting me."
I am so happy that you have decided to talk to your counselor again. I am sure that it will really help. I think that it is a very wise idea.
I think that Tennis wrote a note to her counselor. Also she had talked to a teacher that she trusted and the teacher talked to the counselor. I know how hard it is sometimes to talk to people, but, Once you have made the first move, the rest comes much easier, trust me, I have been there. I know that you can do this, you are a very strong young adult.
Hugs to you both,

I still can't get how you "have you done something bad" out of "has she been good". It isn't good to assume that people are saying something that they haven't said. So stop that, please. Take everything at face value and don't interpret things in any way other than they are. I am sure she didn't mean what you think that she did.
Sometimes we all have days like you had, when everything seems to be negative. But that just comes with life. You have to look for positive and not the negative. Try to find something positive in every day. If you really look, you will find it.
I hope that you can see your counselor tomorrow. I think it will do you a lot of good to talk things out with an objective person. It helps us all.
Why do your friends not want to be friends anymore? Did they say that to you, did they say why? You can always make new friends. They will come and go throughout your life time.
So keep your chin up and remember that we are always here for you.
Please don't let this person convince you that it is your fault that she harms herself. Because it is not. Nobody can put that on anybody other than themselves. That is a choice that you make on your own. So please don't feel bad about that. You can feel sad for her, but not for the reason of her actions.
I am sorry that she said what she did and that it made you feel so bad. I hope that you are feeling better now. Keep posting, and keep trying. You are a lot stronger than you think that you are.
