Hi Bernie 10,
I am so glad that you have joined us. You are clearly reaching out for help. And I hope that we can help you some. Here are a few sites that you might want to check out.
I hope that you can get some help through one or all of these sites. But I agree with the above posts. Talk to somebody. Starting with your physician or a school counselor would be a good place to start. Or also as mentioned above, a pastor or a family member. Or maybe a close friend. But you need professional guidance, so please talk to a counselor. It does work wonders for the mind.
I also agree that this isn't a good time to be around people using alcohol and illegal substances. Your mind is fragile, you need to work on you right now. Though it may make you feel better at the moment, the lasting effects are bad. Alcohol is a depressant, so it will make you even more depressed.
You are going to live and learn, you are at the beginning of your life. It can be a learning journey as you go. So please talk to a counselor and get some direction. And some support. You need support right now, badly. Know that we are here to support you, but we are not professionals, just fellow members who are a work in progress, just like you are. So keep posting and know that we care about you.
