Hey, I'm 18 years old. I've been depressed since I was 14 years old. Each time I go back home, I feel this negative vibe, my Dad always screaming at me for no reason, I never get any positives about what I do at home or elsewhere, not even in playing sports. I have no friends at all, I come back home, sit around and do nothing all day. I try playing games or go to the gym to pass my time, but really at the end of day, I just feel like crying more and more, I feel so worthless in life, I have no meaning to this world. I thought about  at the age of 16, but I backed off, I just couldn't do it. Right now, I'm here, all alone, I really feel lonely, I really don't know what to do...

HI KamShow,

Welcome to the forum. I had to take one word out of your post as we are not allowed to discuss it. Plus you double posted so I got rid of one, we only need one. I sure do hope that you feel better soon. I am sorry that you are so depressed. Do you see a counselor? I highly recommend it. It will help you through this difficult time. Keep posting and know that we care,.

Hugs, Karen

Hey KamShow!
I'm really sorry you feel bad. I know how frustrating it can be. I've been depressed for about three years now. At times it feels really lonely and overwhelming, and like nobody seems to see my pain. It can get frustrating when all you want is to feel better and you aren't sure how to improve your mood.
I just want you to know that you are not alone. There are a lot of people who understand how you feel, and are super willing to help you. They wanna see you feeling good!
For a long time, I wasn't sure what to do to improve my situation. But one day, I decided I was going to do whatever it takes to make myself feel good again. I refused to allow myself to stay down and depressed.
I started looking up ways to ease depression and make myself feel good. I found out that exercising every day, eating healthy, taking natural supplements, and going to my counselor all made me feel a little better.
It has been really tough going through this, but I know I can do it.
I suggest getting a counselor to tell your feelings, thoughts, and anything you want/need to. They really help a lot. The biggest thing that helped me about counseling is that it made me feel like I had one place guarunteed where I could always go for a shoulder to lean on.
Please let me know if you would like any advice, tips, or someone to talk to. I would be glad to talk to you I want you to feel good again!

Thank you Karen!
Well Aineadele, there's at times I just feel so alone, I feel that no one will care about me. I hate that feeling.

hello, i am also 18 as well, and i know what you mean... im going threw it now with my parents... if you wanna talk more give me a call or text and see if we can help eachother out..
Bubbles, I took your phone number out as anybody can see it, not just members.  It is not safe.  Start out maybe by putting your email addy in your profile and only members can see it.  Once you get to know somebody, then give them your phone number if you choose to.  Hope you can understand...Hugs, Karen...

Dear KamShow,

I hate that feeling too. I hope you feel better soon! Going to the gym and everything though, keep it up, it's a great place to meet new people and make new friends!

Hey Dude,
Here is something I quickly wrote down right after I had an epiphany while listening to the song Con Te Partiro and came out of a state of depression I had been in for almost ten years. That was about three months ago. I read it if I ever feel a touch of depression coming back. I now have a goal of where I want my life to be one day and I have been visualizing it daily and I visualize it even harder if I start feeling down. This has also helped keep me feeling good! My confidence is up and I have a new girl friend. I know you can do it too brother. Maybe your sadness isn’t unfounded considering the bull crap you deal with. So here it is, sorry about the god in it but it’s what I felt at the time and although I am not religious at all it is what came in to my head when I wrote it.

My Inspiration is the beauty in the universe – Gods beauty - gods gifts to us – music, love, art – life ,feelings – The beauty that exists in this World, the gifts he has given to us – The ability to stand strong in the face of adversity lives within us – We can do anything we believe - The power to change, The power to quell hate for others who have done you wrong- The power to quell your hate for others that is merely reflections of wrong that has been done to you, anger – The ceasing of it, the feeling of weight on ones soul, This is what the gifts from a greater power can give us – the Biggest gift of all, Internal freedom and love of ourselves God is I God is 1 – power is within us all, Amazing power. When you come To terms with it, it’s like Things are meant to be –like they are happening for a reason – you realize your own identity and it is a good identity you see yourself Through The Beauty & love in The Universe & you can’t help But love yourself & The good in yourself.
