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.
