I'm a 15 year old girl, and to me life is a complete nightmare. I am taking medication for depression/anxiety, and also some to help me sleep and to help with eating, but recently I stopped taking them as I have a hard time swallowing pills and just end up spitting it up. And I talk to a worker at school.

Lately I've been extremely down, I'm feeling very alone, frustrated, lost, confused, sad, angry, tired and scared. I've tried listening to music, going for walks or doing some other type of exercise. But everything just frustrates me.

My mom keeps on my back about getting my drivers license and to get a job and go to college, but I'm so scared and insecure to do any of that! We just end up in an argument all the time.

parents ignore me, friends are excluding me from activities. Im failing classes. I just can't stay focused anymore, my grades have went from 70-80's down to 20's. On weekends i don't hang out with friends like other teens do, I have no energy or motivation to get out of bed.

I just don't know what to do anymore, I'm tired of crying and feeling this way. I just want things to get better, but I don't think it ever will.

hi jamie here.

can you get some counselling from your school? i would also talk to your doctor about your issues with swallowing your medication. since you have missed some, this is most likely keeping you in a depressed state of mind. also if you can't see a counsellor at school your doctor maybe able to help you see one on a sliding-fee scale. things will get better. keep talkin' with us. you have been brave in sharing. we care about you ok. with healing compassion, jamie

Oh sweetie, I thought it was my daughter writing this letter, it sounds so much like her. She started emds 5 weeks ago and they doubled them and she got so sick I told her to stop.
I promise you things will get better if you keep trying. coming here shows you want things to change...it is not your fault...you need different meds or something to help keep them doen.

If you can't talk to yr mom or doc , please please find a trusted adult that can help you get the help you need.

I admire you, you are so younfg and so strong, the walking and music will help. Google deep breathing, it can help with that panicky feeling you get.

School is important (I am riding my dtr about failing grades) but the most important is YOU

Please keep posting, Wish I am a mother and you could be my child. I care deeply.

Thanks jamie .... I'm not sure? I talk to the child youngth worker (or something like that) at school, I have told my doctor that I hard a hard time with taking them she told me they were not pills I had to swallow but they are. My mom was looking for a place I can go to talk one on one and then talk with a group, I dont know much about it.

Hi there,

I posted on your other thread which I am going to delete as you double posted. That happens.

I too think you should talk to your doc aobut not being able to swallow your meds. It sounds like since you stopped them, you have had more problems. Do go back on them.

Take care, keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

Hi, I just wanted to welcome you to this forum, I'm quite new here also, this is a wonderful place to come to. You are not judged here, and there is always someone here who is willing to help or offer advice.
 
Regarding you having trouble swallowing your medication. I also have lots of problems swallowing tablets. Sometimes I take medication that is too big, with either a spoonful of yoghurt or apple puree, or something similar with that consistency. You will find that it goes down very easy doing this.
 
Just know that you are not alone, and we do care about you.
 
Take care
Cleo

Welcome Wish...I am so sorry you are feeling so sad, I wish I could wrap my arms around you and give you a big hug. I am happy that you are talking with someone, I also think a group therapy would benefit you. Never give up just hang in there sometimes it feels like forever until they find the right meds for you. Just remember you are a wonderful person who has some problems you need to work through. Believe it or not most people have a problem they have to work through...You can do it.

Keep in touch....you are in my thoughts and prayers
Bless you, Amy

I know just how you feel....I've dealt with the same problems for a long time and it's no fun. There will be better days ahead though, and there is hope <3 If you can, try going to a therapist or psychiatrist and just tell them how you feel, and I hope your family will be more supportive of you when you're going through this kind of pain....Keep posting, it helps to talk :)

<3
