ok I'm a new member here because I thought that I could find someone who might give me a word of two of encouragement and maybe a solution to my problem. about 2 months ago I started to get that depressed feel but I thought it was only because of the lousy weather. Even when the sun came out for a couple of weeks and I want on vacation i still could not shake the feeling of just plain despair. I sat in bed one night as my thought raced and decided to go down stairs and just type out my thoughts on a word document. This is a summary of what I said: I am a overweight 15 year old who has "friends" that would like nothing better than to criticize me all day. At first I thought that the mocking would go away and it was just a phase. I was wrong and they were relentless. At the end of each day I looked forward to going home like all kids who go to school do but when I thought about it, I realized that i had nothing at all to look forward to. My parents are divorced (whose aren't these days) and my life generally sucks. When I sat there thinking about going home I also thought about what I am. My siblings are all extremely athletic but i was the only one who tried all the sports, put all my heart and soul into them, and still failed. I have tried all of the sports but none of them suit me. I not only get crap from my brother and sister for that but my "friends". My whole school is athletic as well. The school revolves around them and they go to sate for every sport every year and almost aways win. I just can't find a way out of it. I visited a psychiatrist and all he said to my mom was that I was going through a rough time because of the divorce. It was 2 years ago that they divorced and I got over it but I still miss seeing my dad when I come home. I don't like to talk to people face to face about it because they all tell me I'm just trying to get attention. this is my last hope for help. I have tried getting out more but i have no friends that will not mock me and my family is just as bad. Ask yourself, Who do you turn to when your own mother doesn't believe you? I thought about o but it is a "permanent solution to a temporary problem" like the other websites called it. I see no other way but if someone proposes something that helps, I'm all ears.

Hi there,

and welcome to the depression forum. Your friend is right, that is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I had to edit your post as we are not allowed to talk about it here on this forum.

You are young, you will change. Keep exercising to get your weight down. If you don't like that, try walking. It really helps. No soda during the day. Drink water. Maybe put some fresh lemon in it. That is what I do. I love pepsi and I have to get off of it. Not easy.

Focus on your studies. This is the time that we shape our minds. Forget about the people that mock you and ignore them. I know that it hurts, but if they were happy, they wouldn't do it. So that gives you some idea of their mindset. People are happy don't put other people down. I am sorry that you have to go through that.

Make friends with your mom. Let her know how you feel. We know that you aren't doing things for attention, but they don't understand. Check out your school counselor and talk to them about what is going on with you. Let them know how you feel. Maybe even a professional counseler is warrented. You have to start somewhere though and school counselors are free.

Keep posting. Let us know how you are doing.

Hugs, Karen
