I've always been self conscious. I started dating my boyfriend and was happy as could be till he cheated on me. Ever since then Ive been struggling with trying to figure out what is wrong with me. I have no friends. No one talks to me. I used to be popular but now its like I dont even know how to socialize. Ive turned to awful things to help cope with my depression but none of it works. My mom struggled with depression as a teenager and experimented with suicide and I know it would break her heart if I tried to tell her what Ive been experiencing. I dont know what to do because I dont want to try to get medicine if what im struggling with really isnt serious. I need someone to talk to who understands and will help me with my problems. Im tired of being alone. I cry all the time. I always feel sick. My body aches. My joints ache. I have no energy. I dont even have the desire to dress and leave my house. What do i need to do?

Hi Goozerz,

It sounds like you should see your doctor and get into counseling or on medications. That is the next step to healing. If you just let it go, it will only get worse. Especially if it runs in your family. I had the same issues. But I waited to get help until I was in my 20's. The earlier you start the easier it is. So see your doctor or call your local mental health facility.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen

Sorry you are having a rough go of things right now but you can make it better. I know you think that it will hurt your mother to let her know whats going on but she would probably be your best ally in this situation. Someone that has gone through what you are going through now knows exactly how you feel, which is the hardest thing about tying to get people to understand. She maybe your best motivator to get better. If you don't feel you can tell her please at least tell someone, school councellors are a great start. Hope you feel better today
