You should definitely talk to your doctor about the thoughts going through your head. It may take some adjustment to your medication before you find what is going to work for you. It happens alot. Your doctor probably deals with this problem all the time so don't be afraid to tell him or her what is going on.
Having three kids to take care of is stressful so make sure you take care of yourself first, then others.View Thread
It does take your body time to adjust to the medications. As long as you are following your doctor's orders regarding how you take the medication, you should be fine. This might be something to bring up with your doctor just to get his or her opinion.View Thread
I hope you don't leave. I'm sorry you're having a difficult time. Don't hate yourself. If being here helps keeps you safe then please stay because it is important that you take care of yourself. I do read your posts, but I just don't always have the right words to say. That's why I don't respond to a lot of posts. I'm sure there are others here that are the same way. It's not that we want you to leave.View Thread
I know it is scary to talk to your parents about something like this. Are you sure they would think this of you or do you think it is the fear of them knowing what's wrong? I also wonder if they already think something is wrong and are just not saying anything. I know if my daughter were to tell me something like this, I would not think any less of her and I would not think she is a freak. I would want to get her help so she would feel better.
Please give your parents a chance to help you. Maybe try writing them a note instead of talking to them face-to-face. This might be easier.View Thread
I am feeling like I don't belong anywhere. I am an outsider looking in. Everything I do is difficult, even sleeping. I either sleep too much or not enough. I am not worthly of a good life. I just want to cry but I can't. Nothing can help me. I feel like I am going crazy because I can't control my depression or my thoughts.View Thread
The only way to know for sure if a graduate school is going to take you is if you apply or talk to someone in admissions. Don't be discouraged if the first one or two don't take you because I believe there is a school that will take you. Good luck and I hope you find a good school to go to.View Thread
I can understand your fear of being labeled, but your health is important especially because you have two small children to take care of.
Have you ever been diagnosed with anything? If not, being diagnosed can help. If you have some type of condition such as depression, there are things you will be able to do to feel better. Therapy and medication are common and you should not be afraid to seek that type of help. A doctor is not going to tell you that you are crazy because you're not. You might want to try your primary care doctor and see if he or she can refer you to someone who can evaluate you.
I hope you can find some type of help and that you will feel better.View Thread
Are you currently seeing a doctor or therapist? If not that is what you want to do as soon as possible.
Because you are a teenager, I'm assuming you are under 18 and in that case, I suggest you go to one of your parents. Hopefully they will understand and take you to see a doctor. If you need help right now try calling a crisis line or talking to your parents. There is a link on this page on the left side that says "Crisis Assistance". At least then you will be able to talk to someone about what is going on right now.View Thread
I am not feeling so hot tonight. My sister went home today and that makes me really sad. Not sure what to do with the sadness. It just gets added to all of the sadness that already exists. I just don't don't have any more words right now.View Thread
I am feeling very sad and angry today. I have lost all hope that I will ever be better. I am going to see another doctor on Tuesay to see if there is anything the he can do to help me. So I will see how that goes. Until then, I am not sure what I am going to do. Even then, I have a lot of doubts as to whether I can even be helped. My depression is so bad right now. I just feel completely defeated like everything I do is pointless and my life means nothing.View Thread
