Hello and I am so glad you feel you have come to the right place to let out your feeligs. 

I know that going over and over something in my mind after it's happened doesn't do any good. It just makes it worse. I can actually inflate an event after the fact and then it causes me more anxiety than the actual event did. Anxiety causes me to lose my self esteem and then I am into depression.

There is something comforting about baring your soul to the members of Depression and still being able to be anonymous.

The wonderful members here have helped me through so much and I have a great deal to thank them for.

We are so happy to have you.

Hugs

Kitt

I really enjoy knowingthat I can come on this site and express my emotions with others that I don't really know (the way that I best open up) but a problem with this is that my Dad believes I come on this site to help out others instead of myself. I have been to the doctor to sort out some form of councilling, but have been told that it is going to take between 12 to 15 weeks before I get anywhere with it. I speak to someone on www.kooth.com (a counciler there) but am only aloud to talk to them once a week and once a week isn't enough... I need to talk to someone more often but because Dad has a password for the internet which means I am limited to how ofter I come on here anyway, I can only talk on here at his say-so.
About Me: My mum died of cancer when I was 12, Don't get on with Dad and Sister, Held all my emotions, grief and feelings in for 6 years and now need to explode because I can't cope any longer!

Heej Princess,

I thought I'd mentioned it before, but it there are ways other than the interwebs to communicate. First of all, you could check to see if there is anyone living near you that can be a help, or maybe a group. That might sound very challenging, but the truth is there are people that care and are willing to help, you just need to find them.
If that ain't an option, you can start using other media, like writing (hand-writing!), or if that is too slow, things like calling or texting. No internet needed for that.

Plus, you could explore other ways to express yourself. Arts are a great example. Depression is in fact a great source of inspiration for arts, and it can be a great help to transfer your emotion into something else. For me, music is the way to go, though I also write poems. I wish that I could draw, but I rather suck at that. Besides arts, things like exercise can work great to get the anger out. Use your anger and pain to keep you going and reach new levels of endurance. You will feel much better afterwards.

I wish you all the best!

The problem is that where I live, I have looked for any type of counsellers in the areas that I will be able to get to and nearly all that I have found (all apart from The Response Agency) have been private which we haven't got the moeny for! Other than that... The people that I would be able to talk to in the area (as in family-friends *adults*) have kids of there own and ain't always able to talk when I need to. I don't have friends that I can text, and feel that I can't open up to my family or friends anyway. If I feel depressed, I won't be in the mood to write anything, I don't like music, I ain't too good on my art, I don't even write poems anymore so I am in the dark there. As I said on another topic, since my mum died, I have been saying I want to go back swimming as it would give me something to keep my mind off my depression, but Dad siad it may be a good idea to go to a different baths as I wouldn't have any memories, but there ain't many places around here I could go to. Or even with the gym, I am too depressed and not motivated, so I haven't got a job, not in college, and have no money coming in so I can't go the gym anyway... I am going to this Response Agency now to hopefully talk to someone for a bit... but I just can't help lashing out still... its just making me worse and I REALLY need help x x cry
