hello, ive just heard about this site today and figured that it would be good to help me since ive been feeling depressed for quite a while now.. i feel so alone my friends don't talk to me as much as they used to. its my summer vacation and i havent gone out with 1 friend ever since. it makes me feel like nobody knows i exist? i know that family is always there for you ,but even if i want to do something with my sister its like she always says no my mom never wants to go out either so im pretty much stuck at home doing nothing on my laptop almost everyday because there isnt really much to do. i play with my dog and walk her and it makes me feel happy again but just for 5 minutes than im back to negative thinking and feeling alone. When my mom asks me to do something around the house like chores i feel like she doesnt ask me polite enough and i feel like im a slave to the house. me and my mom dont have a good relationship because i find that we dont relaly have much in common. my mom is just good for yelling at me, telling me to do stuff around the house. We don't have that mohther and daugther talk she never asks me how im feeling or anything even though im really not doing well. as to why i dont want to ask to bring to counceling because i dont want to tell her im feeling this way.. so i decided to find something online to help me atleeast. Im worried because school is starting very soon and i know that i'll still be depressed and imjust worried because i want to start good for school, but i dont think i will because i'll feel miserable (lonely) and i wont be able to concentrate. I also tend to forget a LOT . .

thank you to whoevers taking the time to read this

Hi there,

Have you tried talking to your mom about this? Let her know that you feel that something is lacking in your relationship.

Maybe your mom feels that you should be doing your chores without being told to. Could you try to be responsible and help her out by doing things around the house? I bet if you did that things would be better between you and her.

Do you ever go out and look for things to do with people? Is there somewhere you could go for entertainment by yourself?

Try not to predict what your future of starting back to school will be like. Especially if you are negative about it. If you think negative, things tend to turn out that way. Try to think positive. I think you will have a better outcome. This year could be totally different from last year. You will probably make new friends and have a lot of fun.

I hope that you do feel better soon. Try talking to your mom. If you can't talk, write her a letter and let her know how you feel.

Hugs, Karen

no i haven't told my mom anything yet..

I most of the time do as she says but sometimes i start to think that she always depends on me to do house work all the time i have 2 sisters as well and its like she HAS to pick on me.

i don't have much friends so i dont really go anywhere. im also a shy type which makes it harder to make friendsa as to y i feel lonely :\

It can be hard when you are shy. But there are a lot of shy people. Besides, you should try to make learning your top priority. Then the rest might just fall into place. You will probably meet more people like yourself.

I am sorry that you feel like your mom picks on you. Are you the oldest? Often the oldest has to help with the younger ones. It doesn't seem fair, but you learn responsiblilty. That is important to know when you get older. It makes life a lot easier.

Enjoy being young. You will make friends. And things will seem better once school starts. It gives us something to look forward to.

Hugs, Karen
