My mom is in her own world of thinking life is fine and I have nothing to worry about but school. I beg to differ. I've been well... "sad" since around 8th grade (I'm in 11th grade now) but ever since the beginning of this year, I felt a whole lot worse. Just recently, my medication has run out and therefore, I had stopped taking it. It was for stress and since I stopped taking it, I have a much harder time to remembering. It's affecting my ability to work in school and I have no idea how to help myself, to get myself out of this dark cloud. I have no one to turn to in fear of my mom finding out and punishing me. My older sister is depressed as well and it started about 4 years ago. She cuts herself AND is on anti-depressants. She can't help me--how can she when she can't help herself? Please try to respond and tell me how I could get out of this? Please!
