i dont even know where to start. i can never sleep at night so im stuck all alone with nobody to talk to and then my mind starts going crazy and thinking about things from the past and i get depressed. i also reallllyyy need a job but not even mcdonalds will hire me cause i dropped out [which i think is kinda silly cause its not rocket science to make french fries and just cause i dropped out it doesnt make me a bad person.] i know if i get a ged it will be easier but i cant afford the gas to get to the free classes that prepare you for it because i cant get a job. its a terrible cycle. my sister went into the army recently so i lost one of the few people i could talk to and trust. Now i only have my boyfriend and my best friend and just a year from now my best friend is going out of state to college. my boyfriend is looking at some jail time for something that wasnt even his fault he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. i feel like im losing everything and everyone. i feel like everyone i love is leaving. soon who will i have? i also have social anxiety so im very shy so its almost impossible for me to make more friends. i feel like im stuck in a hole with no way out and its caving in. i feel surrounded by loneliness and stress. i have so many issues. i dont know what to do anymore.

hi duckky, my name is jamie, i am in australia, thus i do not know your school system that well. firstly you have done well coming here, and i feel that you have a lot going on, thus i suggest that you talk with a counsellor. your doc may be able to refer you to a counsellor/therapist, also a general check up may help as well. this way you can receive the right and best reatments sooner. i know that there is some excellent teen on-line sites that may help you as well. the thing is you can only change the things that can be changed, the others are out of your control. writing stuff done is good too, and is a good thing to take to your doc/counsellor as well.
i am sure that other members with more info will post soon. stay strong, i am sorry that your situation is rough at the moment, albeit there is always hope, and you have started this by reaching out. i admire your courage in doing so. things are tough in the world as it is, i know, but always remember that the sun always shines........even in the darkness. with loving compassion.

Hi duckyy,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the Depression board. You're suffering and I'm sorry to hear it. Don't give up on looking for jobs. Try to be creative? What are you good at? Don't count yourself out just because you don't have a degree.

I'd love to hear of you trying the GED. There are free GED preparation materials available on the web, like sample tests and reviews. You could also head to the library and sign out a GED prep workbook.

Give a call to your local mental-health counseling center as well. They often offer counseling at free or reduced rates for the unemployed. Good luck, and remember you're not alone.
