I'll try to keep this as short as possible. Basically I seem to be getting very down recently, seeing the worst in situations and I'm increasingly finding that I can't control my thoughts. I will have arguments with myself in my head. Sometimes it seems that there are other people there like my estranged former best friend. Its starting to take over my life. Its normally worst when I'm on my own like in bed or in the shower, I'll just hear voices in my head being mean and telling me things that I’m doing wrong, but I can't control it at all. This is all very strange and for saying I used to be such a mentally happy, positive person, I seriously think it is due to some recent traumas I have been through. My parents have recently been divorced and due to (I’m 18 years old by the way) family pressures and complications I basically don’t talk to my mother any more. I don’t see her any more, and I find this very difficult to bear. I had to choose between them and I chose my Father solely because he was the injured party. It took a lot out of me because I have had to support my Dad through all this and I think this may have contributed to me being so depressed recently. I don’t think its depression because I will have periods of happiness like when I’m with my friends, but as soon as I’m on my own, or if someone says something that upsets me I will take it to heart and it will trouble me for days afterwards. Sometimes I just can’t get up in the morning because I feel I have nothing to get up for. Its not because I’m lazy, I just have no will to do anything sometimes. I’ve been as informative as possible and I would greatly appreciate any help.

  • Ya i can understand ur problems since im too going through the same phase in my life.. its because of the family pressures u've become very stressed..dont give up in life.. when ever u're alone just try to deviate ur thoughts and try to concentrate in some thing u really like..if possible it's better to see a psychatrist since ur hearing some voices in ur head and u may think like something is controlling u..its because of my mother's psychatric illness i began to imagine things and it was quiet difficult for me to come out of it..so it's good to talk to someone before it gets more complex get the help of ur friend or ur school councellor to take further actions. I believe u to be an optimistic person and thus itwould be easy for u to retrieve back to ur happy life.but frnd never give up in ur life..believe in GOD..pray to HIM and ask GOD to be with u in ur difficult times..
