    it’s pretty much normal that kids start getting depressed around 13-19 years old. But it’s very important that you seek for help. I started getting depressed when i was 14 and i’m 21 and still taking therapy for it. Never give up and stay strong. dont be afraid to ask for help. talk to a counselor, ask for guidance. i know its hard and all you wanna do is keep pushing everyone away, but you have to fight against it and enjoy life. it’s only one. 🙂

    I’m always in my house, I barely eat anymore, I’m dressing more goth each day, I can’t concentrate on anything, I’m always tired, I day dream at school and am starting to get bad grades, I always want to stay home, I don’t have any more friends, I feel like I’m worthless, I stay up until 4 o’clock every night. I’m always sad. I can’t get a girfriend. All I do is listen to sad music on my laptop. And sometimes I cry before I go to sleep. But I’ve never had suicidal thoughts. I still need help 🙁

    @Shawskyyy to be honest man its Your life and Your in charge of it. if you feel like commiting suicide you can debate it cause its Your choice, but if you feel like making a go with the flow change, or a try something different change go ahead, its better to be stuck in the grey zone instead of the black zone. ive thought of suicide to man im 15 n everything feels worthless n i cant figure out why i feel so negative, u know its all our ego that is doing this and were all fucked n nothings right

    I was just diagnosed with depression. My grades in the last 3 years have gone from straight As to Ds and Fs. I sleep alot, but I can never fall asleep at night time. I just don’t feel up to it anymore. I have had suicide thoughts. I just want it to get better.

  13. CoolCandy3001 says:

    I’m 10, I sometimes dont sleep very well then the next day i’ll be alseep all night. My friends stopped playing with me because i would burst out in tears for no reason. I sometimes get worse and feel like i dont know why i was born, sometimes i feel like killing myself, and other imes i can feel alone. Yesterday I almost killed myself, but my sister stopped me from doing so. I dont eat as well as i used to either. And i feel like nobody cares about me. I have been crying randomly since i was –

    @mjchangedmylyf and my friends neglect my efforts for trying to reach out. no one really texts me. i just feel so alone right now. i have ow energy, and i don’t understand why. i exercise every morning. aren’t i supposed to have more energy?? 🙁
    and this morning, i cried so much. i don’t know why, but there was this ache in my chest, the next thing i knew, i was sobbing. 🙁
    Can anyone help me??

  15. mjchangedmylyf says:

    @mjchangedmylyf and usually, after lunch, i’m on my computer going to facebook, and feeling all sad because no one is trying to communicate with me, so i log off and watch anime from youtube. then i’d sleep for like 3 hours. i’m so lonely, and sad, and i feel worthless. it’s like sleeping is the only way that helps me cope up with the lonliness. I feel that no one wants to be around me. like i’m a burden. my own sister doesn’t even wanna talk to me, my cousins don’t care,

  16. mjchangedmylyf says:

    i don’t know if i’m depressed. but in the mornings, i do aerobics, and doing any kind of exercise releases endorphin that’s supposed to make a person happy. but not me. in the mornings, i’d feel sad, and i’d even cry and i have no idea why! and i’m neutral at night. it’s summer, and i’m supposed to be having the time of my life, but i’m at home in my computer. my friends don’t want to hang out, and my family always asks me why i’m not hanging out, and i just make excuses that my friends r busy.

  17. GBAPCLAN says:

    i have never been invited to a house party, i day dreamt that summer would be filled with great days out with friends in the summer sun. i now just stay indoors all day on my computer’ playing games or looking at pictures on facebook of other peoples great parties they have had.

  19. airsoftkiller17 says:

    I feel like there’s always a reason to be sad and there’s always a way of things to get better but after thinking that for so long I lose hope and just live with it I have a great friend that keeps trying to help me but I push her away and don’t know why cuz all I keep thinking is someone please help me but when she try’s I get mad and tell her to leave me alone I do things like ridding my bike to keep my mind off all the sad things in my life but as soon as I’m done all the sad comes back and

    @supersquash7 same here.

  22. magdi1966 says:

    @22Hypergrl I feel the same way. I don’t like going anywhere either, or doing anything. Nothing makes me happy any more. I don’t feel loved or wanted or needed. Sometimes, I just don’t want to be here any more.

  23. supersquash7 says:

    I’ve always wanted to be a comedian, for a long time i was really funny. Then one day i was making a person mad because they couldn’t take a joke and they got offended or something. Ever since then i haven’t had comedy in my life because i took a break of being comedic. But soon lost it, then i fell into a deep depression and am still in one it seems, i don’t know how to get a drive back into doing something i love, everything seems so hopeless. Btw, i’m only 15. So basically like the top c
