hi im 15 years old and have been suffering from depression symptoms since the age of 14. It started when all my friends stopped talking to me because i would often lash out at them and i felt alone and lost. All my teachers noticed and my head of year would always come and talk to me and she even called in my mum. i couldnt stop thinking about different ways to  and have thought about taking an or when i saw a car i would think what if i just  of it. i eventually got most my friends back but i still drifted in and out of being depressed.
I have major mood swings like somedays i feel really positive about life and very energetic but more often i feel depressed and my friends tend to really irritate which makes me feel guilty. one minute ill be dancing,singing,laughing then the next im really quiet and dont irratable. I hate going to school and i find it difficult to concentrate in class so i get told off which makes me angry and i cry for no reason. Last year i used to self harm  but only told my mum because my ex auipar saw the cuts and i knew she would tell her anyway. i felt so ashamed and embarased by my stupid actions. The other day i got a D in my science GCSE exam and instead of being upset it didnt bother me at all and i felt strangely relieved. I tend to leave my homework to the last minute and do it very late at night or rush it in the morning as when i come home from school i usaly go to sleep or watch tv as i constantly feel exhausted. I try to go to bed early but when i do i can never get to sleep as i often have so many things going on in my mind. I am nearly always late for school as i get up as late as possibe to avoid going. I used to be very sociable but i never go out anymore with my friends and have quite all my extra curricular activities. I never tell people how i feel because im embarased and recently my hair has started to fall out in the shower. I dont think my mum will believe me if i tell her these things and she will probably think im trying to get attention. I never realized how bad it got until i started typing this. i have done lods of those bipolar quizzes and they all say that i may be bipolar but i dont no what to do please help thank
Sorry for the edit but we are not suppose to discuss suicide or self harm on the forum.  I suggest you talk to somebody asap.  Get counseling, you need support.  And counseling is the best way to get it.

    agree seek immediate assistance. this path is very destructive if you stay on it. trust me on this. i screwed up a good 20 yrs, it is nasty, seek assistance, see your doc, call your mental health clinic, and or speak with your school counsellor. the earlier you intervene the better treatments and assistance you will receive, furthermore you can get better sooner. pls remember that this is a medical condition and your doc can make an assessment to aide in your teatments via referal, medication, and effective plans that you yourself can work on. keep posting, here for you. jamie.

    Dear lost girl,

    I feel i am in the same position as you. My friends don't understand i don't care about school and nothing in life is important to me anymore. Just recently i will get so mad i feel i have to burst and end up hurting someone or myself..

    KNow that i am here when you need a shoulder to lean on.
