Lately I've been super sad and not myself. I never want to do simple things that I use to do or things that I want to do anymore, for example sleep, or eat, or even be around my friends or even my family. I am a teenager, and I know people say its natural to feel this way, but its getting worse and worse. Anytime I can I find a way to  myself. I talked to one trusting adult that I know and I got a lot of help from him, but also I was more confuse than normal. The part that is scaring me is just that i'm myself, and I know my friends are feeling the wrath from it, but I can't stop it. I want to get over this feeling, but every time I think I do it returns and its 10 times worse. I hate waking up in the morning, and I always just want to be by myself. I feel alone but i keep pushing people away that could help me. Not only people that could help me but my friends and family. I don't know how to explain this feeling its just there.

Hi Swimfriend555,

I am sorry that I had to edit your post, but I took it that when you mentioned hurting yourself that you meant self harm so I took the words out. We aren't allowed to talk about it on the forum.

Yes what you are feeling is normal, for a depressed person. I would suggest that you discuss this with your doctor and see what they have to say about it. You might need some type of medication, or therapy. Both of which could help you. Being that you are a teenager they will probably start out with the therapy, then see if medication will help if the therapy isn't. Either way, I hope that you feel better soon.

Best wishes,

Hugs, Karen

Hi Swimfriend, I had my first 'panic/depression' episode at the age of ten. It wasnt until i was 14 that i was put in therapy and medicated. I felt the way you described and yes part of it is being a teenager which can suck- but to be depressed on top of that is so draining. Please talk to your doctor and see what can be done to help you get through this time. Keep us posted and know that we care-

555, i too was severly depressed as a teen, yeah hard, hormone changes, life, school, can be tough. best thing i did was seeing the doctor. getting help early is recommend my friend. be honest with your doc, this way you can reeceive the right treatments sooner. i admire your courage in seeking help and posting your situation. stay safe. with healing compassion. jamie
