I'm not sure about anything anymore. I used to be happy back in elementary school and before then but now it seems things are all going downhill. It could just be me. There's no abuse going on in my house, I'm being properly taken care of it's not my family members it's Me. I've never talked to anyone about this but I have really low self-esteem I think I'm ugly. There have been times where i thought otherwise..but as time goes on I keep thinking I'm just getting uglier. I'm a girl and I'm heterosexual however I find activities,clothing,etc that is for boys more amusing. I consider myself a tomboy (as do others) I'm sure I'm not gay nor do I really WANT to be a boy it's just..depressing, the criticism you get for not being ''girly'' sometimes. I have good friends, so I think it could just be all in my head. My grades are poor in school (Atleast in one subject) They're dropping. I'm always sleeping in class. I act happy and seem happy around friends and others who I love but on the inside..I'm not sure what I am. I know there are people out there with a much worse problem than what I have but can somebody help me through this? Give me some tips besides talking to my parents?

I was exactly where you are in highschool. I was always a tomboy and got a lot of flack for it - even rumors that I was a ***. Even now I don't know who I am! It is still a huge issue for me. The only way I could cope through high school was reminding myself that none of those people matter. Honestly, they don't. I only saw them during the day and once high school was over they were dead to me. I know it's easier said than done but that's just how I got through it.

I can really understand you with this self esteem problems,and being different,but I don't think It's depression,You need guidance,and I think what you are getting through is some kind of personality crisis,you will figure out who you are and this things will pass,anyway,i advice you to see a Dr. just to make sure,because I could be wrong.

Best wishes,Omar

Hi there,

Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I am so glad that you have joined us, but sorry for what you are going through. I always liked guys clothes better than women's. Still kind of do and I am older.

Have you considered talking to a school counselor? They can be really helpful at times. I would talk to somebody like that, maybe they could help you talk to your parents. I am sure that your parents would want to know if you were not happy with life.

Things do get easier, that is for sure. But not always right away. It takes work on your part. Have you read any books on depression? That might be helpful for you. There are many good ones out there.

I hope that you find what works for you. Keep posting and know that we all care. This forum can be slow on the weekends so if you don't get a lot of responses, don't feel bad. It just means not a lot of people were on.

I hope that you have a good day today. Keep posting.

Hugs, Karen
