Please don't feel as if you're weak because other people seem to have it worse in their lives. Thinking like that really doesn't get anyone anywhere, and it will only make you feel worse. Yes, terrible things do happen to people, but at the same time, you're going through an incredibly tough time as well--thoughts of suicide and self-harm aren't easy to deal with, and that you're still here, alive, and fighting the urge to self-harm on top of it shows great strength of character. Don't put yourself down. Even if it's hard, try and find things to love about yourself, because I'm sure (absolutely positive) that you are a lovely person, and you will get through this.

Hello S

I think I know how you feel. Looking through these blogs I often feel foolish. I feel something like a fraud because I can't think of any reason I should be genuinely depressed. I am always second guessing myself and even my own thoughts... if that makes sense?

I don't know the particulars of your life; only what I have read on here. Please do not write yourself off as trivial. You are not and anything that makes you feel the way you do... is no small thing.

I am glad you are still resisting the urge to cut. You warned me against it and I am so grateful to you for it. I hope you can remain strong.

It's horrible to feel alone, surrounded by people but they're not aware of what's going on with you. We're not entirely alone at least. We are all strangers here but we have this in common.

Thankyou both for the advice. It's something I am considering. Jenna: Since you started at 17, what made you go for help at the time? When did you start to become depressed? I hope you don't mind me asking, it's just difficult to find advice when you're only 17.

Hi I am new to this site but been looking for one one for a long time.I dont know how old you are but I myself am 26 and have been on meds since I was 17.It is a constant battle to not listen to the voice that says I should be able to live life without them.Finding the right team of people to help and getting the right medication can really make a difference though.Get lots of info.I hope this helps.

I didn't go to the doctor for many years for the same reasons. I knew it would pass. I didn't want to be dependent on meds. I am 33 now and just started meds about 2 months ago. As I look back, I had many long periods of down time, pure misery, all the color drained out of my life, and I wonder if I could have lived a better life if I had gone in sooner. Life is too short to live in misery. Do what you can to be happy now. Don't wait until too much of life has passed you by....good luck to you.

Is sex a taboo? We don´t know, but Depression certainly is. And that´s why we are talking about it, Only those who have been through it know what it is like, and those that can be supportive many times have no clue how to deal with it.
So we made a short film called L.I.F.E., awarded in some film festivals, that portraits a full time mother and lawyer who has suffered from depression for many years and that has led her to start a support group for depression sufferers that meet regularly. You can watch it for free on the internet!
Why to talk about the invisible illnesses? Because I´ve been dealing with depression my whole life. I am 29 now and I´ve been suffering from depression since I was 8 years, I tried to commit suicide twice at the age of 18 and planned on taking my life several times.
Making the film helped me to accept the disease and dedicating a section at my website to talk about it makes me feel better.
Be our guest! There you can get information about depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, cyclothymia and dysthymia, besides I point out a lot of treatment options and share my own experience.
Come and share yours! Your life matter a lot to us! Let´s gather strength by sharing and being comforted by listening and learning new ways out of depression!

And I am really really sorry about my English but it´s a bit rusty! I am Brazilian!
Brazilian hugs from Ana Maria Saad and keep on talking about such delicate and taboo matter!
Thanks!

"Fed Up,"... it's a feeling we all know. It's almost worse than just sad, isn't it? It's almost like trying does not seem worth the effort. But trust me - it IS. Good things happen when we least expect it. Good things that we either never knew we wanted or would get. Please try to keep your eyes open to the good things, ok? I agree that life is full of BULLSHIT that makes us become, "fed up," but there really is good stuff out there too. I will hope and pray that you see it soon.

well done about the GCSE results, they sound absolutely amazing and by the sound of it you really worked for them. I believe congratulations is in order.

I know how you feel, infact your situations sounds scarily familiar to myself. I know that if I say that you really just need to learn to please yourself and not everyone else around you, it's your life and not theirs, that you might not believe this completely. But I hope that you can take this on board.

I also had the same thing with the boyfriend, I eventually told him and he was understanding, no one else knows about it apart from him and as I'm sure you will know it's easier having someone else to talk to as well.

This is what this site is about, so I hope that you won't be a stranger :)
Have a nice day & good luck.

(and yes, icecream is always a good move)

It's not always easy but sometimes you have to explicitly tell people what you need from them. As someone who is introspective, self-critical and analytical to a fault I set myself up for disappointment because I sometimes forget that not everyone thinks like I do and therefore won't behave or react like I want or expect them to. Like esperanza said you have to delight in your own achievements. Find yourself and live your life for you. It's unsettling that you can rationally see how high you are achieving yet non-acknowledgment from family can send you into a suicidal tailspin. People can get overly self-absorbed and temporarily forget loved ones. Maybe they're just dense which gets back to what I was saying about telling people what you need sometimes. You can write eloquently about your feelings to share with strangers on the internet, but you should really try to so the same with the flesh and bone people who really matter to you.

thankyou, the blowing their brains thing made me laugh for the first time in days. you're right who cares what other people think as long as i'm happy with how i've done & i decided icecream is like a well needed hug for your insides.

dude you know what i have realised? after working hard to get into university and stressing over memorizing useless loads of info, i have found that at the end of the week, it is all about the ice creams and the tv programs. well, for a depressed person anyway. so enjoy that delicious ice cream, LIVE in that tv program! im sure those are the things that keep hard working 9-5ers from blowing their brains out from the stress at work. being a little dramatic, but i have made my point. i hope all ice creams, books, and tv shows will be delicious for many years to come! =D
ps- congrats on your exam results. you dont need anybody else's approval but your own =D
