I'm a 16 year old girl and extremley confused atm. Firsty I cut myself and I have for about a year, not everyday or anything just like every couple of months. I had stopped for about 6 months but recently I've started again. Nobody knows that I do and I'm really scared someone will see and find out so I know I really need to stop but I just kind of like it. I've had suicidal thoughts before but never attempted it. For the past year I've felt like complete crap, like my life has no real meaning and no motivation to do anything at all. Then this past month everything started getting worse, I've been sleeping constantly and 2 weeks I went on a diet to lose weight but this week I've decided I don't care anymore and I've just been eating loads of crappy foods. I normally like going out with friends having fun but I haven't left my house in days and can't be bothered going anywhere. I feel so lost and like I have nobody. I cannot talk to anyone in my family and have no friends close enough to talk to. Then I read an article on depression and had some of the symptomns and wondered if I am cause that would make this whole year fit together and make sense to me. Otherwise I'm completely lost and don't even know what to do. Am I depressed? Please someone help me :(

  • It does sound like depression. Going to the doctor will help determine for sure. If u want they can also give you medicine to help.I know many people who do take depression meds and it does help them, I can give you my email and we can talk when ever you want. I know what its like not having anyone to talk to.
