    Wow, thank you for writing such a detailed response at such a length.
    I don't really know what to say! (I'm sorry ) But just know that I've taken your post into account and consideration as it helps me through this.

    It was actually a friend of mine that made me realise what I feel about myself isn't normal, nor healthy. and other people have commented saying "why are you so miserable?". :rofl:

    But I don't feel like I can talk to anyone about it to get help so I feel a bit stuck. :/. I don't feel like I can talk to someone at school about it (because I think it did have a factor to my rubbishy grades this year). Nor anyone in my own house.
    I think the reason is because I've felt like this for so long, a few years now, so I find it difficult to articulate how I feel in just a few sentences.

    I know that as a 17 year old, I can book an appointment myself, but I can't really do that in private because my family are quite close and would want answers and I'm too ashamed to tell anyone. :sad:

    So if anyone has been in the same situation and/or can offer advice, it would be much appreciated!
    I had the same issue a while back and what your describing is exactly what i went through.
    You either need to seek help (from friends/family/professionals) and its NOTHING to be ashamed of. Or you need to find the right way to fix yourself.

    You can tslk to meif you want i may not be an expert but i am here for all TSRians.



    Also i would be ever so grateful if you tell me if this is somewhat funny

    Thank you for that, but can you sort out post #16 (quote) as well by any chance? Thank you!

    Indeed so, it makes TSR a wonderful place to be.

    I think I'm going to take everyone's (and yours of course) advice and book an appointment with my GP in the next few months/weeks.

    My other problem is that I don't know how to approach them, what do I tell my mum? (whom I consider to be the closest with) I can't just be like " heyy mum, I think I have depression."
    The idea doing that absolutely petrifies me.
    Start it with what they know. They will have realised that you've been down, so you could say that you'd like to try and feel better, and seeing a GP could help with that - it's more of an opener

    I can't do it. It's stupid of me I know. But it doesn't feel like the right time to actually tell anyone about this. *sigh*

    One year and a bit later...

    I didn't end up going to the doctor.

    What I did do however, was make some life changes that have really just helped me feel better mentally.
    Surrounding yourself with those that make you happy, putting time and effort into something I love. Just being more optimistic about my outlook on life.

    It honestly has made such a big difference with my attitude towards life. I have found myself to be more understanding of others that have gone through something similar and have even made new bonds because I feel like I can talk about it. Which I found is really important when it comes to issues like this.
    Another thing I found helpful in the early days was to keep a thought journal. Everyday write down one or two pages of whatever comes to your mind. Write down all the things you were too afraid to say. It helped make me realise where I stood on certain issues or helped simplify what I thought to be a quite complicated situation.

    Having said all of this, I haven't gotten ridden of these thoughts completely. Despite that, I feel as though I can push through and deal with it on my own without losing control. I guess this is something I had to go through in order to better understand myself and grow stronger as a person.

    I would also like to say thank you to those who have responded to my thread. Better late than never right. : You all have been a massive help and I hope this thread also helps those with the same thoughts I was initially feeling.
