i feel like everyone has given up on me. today i felt horrible because this girl in my class was telling me how im dumb and how i should go back to grade 2 and other mean things. ive been goiong through depression for a while. ive done meds, councelling, seen a pschatrist, stayed at the hospital. but nothing helps. my dad gets so frusturated with me but its not like i can help the way i feel. i hope no one hear judges me. i just wanted to write down how i felt. i feel like giving up ibecause life is too hard. im tired of trying. my only hope is God but i feel like hes not helping me. i hate how he left me on this earth to suffer

Welcome to the forum Degrassi9,

I believe that at one point or another we have felt the way you do now. Some of us still do at times. So nobody here is going to judge you. We will tell you our experiences and what has worked or not worked for us.

Are you still on meds and in counseling? It is something we must do regularly. Which meds have you tried that didn't work? Let us know these things so we can help you better. There are many meds out there to try. And somethimes it takes a few tries. It did me anyway. We have a few members that aare treatment resistant. That is really tough.

Keep posting. Let us know how you are doing and please answer my questions so I know where you stand with this.

Hugs, Karen

I know how it feels, i won't give you the hang-in-there pep talk. You just have to take a little refuge in the fact that you are not alone, there are many suffering with you. I know how it can wear on you after a while, but you have to keep the faith that you won't always feel this badly. I hope you can find small things that will help you like exercize, breathing, meditation, mindfulness, etc. Think of it as buying time until you get to those better days and good times.

If they are not working for you, I would let the doctor know that. Let him decide whether or not to increase, or change. I really hope that you find what works for you. Keep us posted.

I know it's impossible to believe right now, but you will get better. Biopolar and depression are genetically in both my husband and my family; thus our children, one has biopolar and one depression. I know that you will honestly truly will get better. I've been through 41 years of dealing with this. My husband went through several boughts of serious depressiion when we were first married.

God has a plan for you plans to prosper and succeed. He created you and He doesn't make mistakes. You will will will get better! Be sure and keep in contact with your doctor. Your dad is possibley frustrated because he can't control or feel like he can help. My husband was that way with our son which didn't help the situation. As he became more educated about depression, he took a better approach. You will be in my prayers take care!

thank you soo much. that honestly means the world to me. i love coming on here because no one judges me and i can speak my mind without someone bringing me down. i hope i do get better. i pray to God all the time. My doctor and mom dont take me seriously. my doctor  thinks my depression is not serious and he just tells me to be happy which doesnt help. i try talking to my mom but she never takes me seriously. i try talking to her but she ignores me. i been feeling very bad ever since i went to the doctor and i told my mom i wanted a new one but i dont think she can find one and when i tell her, she never takes me seriously. the pills im taking arent working. im just tired of this depression. i keep on praying but i just feel like gving up because i always get hurt at the end. but thanks again for the comments! im really hoping that i will get better. i just need some words of encouragement to help me keep going because i usually feel stuck, empty and hopeless. thank you for not giving up on me, i appreciate it soo much

I am sorry that you don't feel understood or taken seriously. I would sit down with your mom and have a talk. Tell her that the meds aren't working. Tell the doctor that too. You need to be heard.

You know your body and mind more than anyone. So talk to them.

I hate when people tell us to just "be happy". If it were only that easy. But we can train our way of thinking to where it can become that easy.

Go to this site and see if it helps you, it is free...

It is called moodgym and it has helped many members that are here at one time or another.

I hope that you feel better soon.

i have tried to talk with my mom but she doesnt listen. shes always walking away when i try to talk to her and she seems very distracted. i feel soo stuck right now and completly miserable that i have to go through this depression alone. my sister is very supportive though. she always makes me feel better. i havent been talking to my mom lately because im hurt by what shes doing. she probably doesnt realize how much it hurts me, i guess she doesnt know what to do or shes just frusturated with me like most people. ive lost hope and i feel sad right now. i have to go back to the doctor again and get humilated infront of him and my mom. theres just no way out of this. but thank you for caring. your comments really lift me up.

Why do you feel humiliated at the doctors? Do they say mean things to you? How old are you? If you said before, I forgot.

I hope this is a better day for you. Keep us posted.

It is hard to be a depressed teen. I know how you feel about adults not taking you seriously. And I know you are probably going through a lot of different emotions at this time. Have you tried talking to a counselor? I think you would be more successful by doing so. I think it would help you more. Doctors don't counsel generally. But he should be able to hook you up with a good counselor. There are a few sites for teens too that might help you...

http://www.teencertral.net/

http://nineline.org/

http://forums.teenhelp.org/

Try these out and see if they help you any. Know that we are here for you also. Just don't give up because it gets easier. But I think you really should get a counselor and get some direction in your life. They are great to talk to and they do listen. Think about it anyway.

I know that your depression is very real. I went through it as a teen too. Just don't do what I did and seclude yourself from others. Now is the time you need friends. You need somebody to listen to you and that is why I think you need a counselor.

Keep posting and know that we care and believe in you.

Hugs, Karen

I think you are being too hard on yourself. Don't give up on getting help. If you want something bad enough, you will get it. There is always a way. Check out the sites that I gave you. You have to do the legwork, we can only point you in the right direction.

Why do you think your therapist got annoyed with you? Do you talk to your doctor about it? Are you on medication?

Do you think you have exhausted all options? Honestly???

How are your grades in school? Do you like school? What grade are you in???

I think there are doors that are going to be opened for you. I will give you a couple more sites to check out. And do check them out... You have to keep trying to move forward. But take life one day at a time... Go with the flow of things, don't try to swim upstream, that will only exhaust you. Just don't give up...

http://moodgym.anu.edu.au/welcome

http://ecouch.anu.edu.au/welcome

Check both of these sites out. I hear moodgym is a good one.

Do use your sister and your friend for support. Grasp at anything you can hang on to. Know we are here for you. I feel as if you need to hang on a bit harder, but I also feel that everything is going to work out for you. Just keep on trying.

Hugs, Karen
