    I don't cry but I sometimes explode with tears which come out forcefully which have been trapped inside me for so long, not often though and happens when I am in a situation which makes me feel overwhelmed in which I tend to become really aggressive. This shocks people as I'm so quiet and seem so nice. They won't believe it. Nobody understands me or knows how I feel though. People think I'm weird. I have no friends. I cannot make friends either as I don't know how to. I'm not able to talk to people and I don't know how to express myself. I don't know what is bothering me. I've always been "weird" and I've never been able to make friends like others can so easily. I even started speaking later than people my age when I was younger. I always feel down. I don't know why I'm like this. I don't know why I feel like this. I just feel sad always. That is me. I'm currently doing GCSEs.

    Is there something wrong with me?

    You might have some sort of mh condition or something. There's nothing to be ashamed about and it happens to loads of people, especially teenagers. It's common to have episodes of things like depression too and doesn't necessarily mean that you have a mh condition, just that you are suffering the effects of them short-term.
    Maybe go see your doctor or ask if your school has a support service. Try to open up in some way about how you feel weather it's talking (to family, friends, a teacher, charity or doctor), writing a diary, posting in forums (like TSRs MHSS), emailing samaritans (confidential) or getting counseling or therapy. Most schools have a service like counseling you can use for free and on site so it's a bit less obvious.

    You might find sites like mind.org or sane.org helpful in working things out. I'd suggest looking into mh problems and maybe forms of learning difficulties. The latter may not apply to you, but you may want to look into it if you feel like you've never really been quite "normal". Being a little off "normal" is fine- it just makes you human- but if you've found you have difficulty with it (maybe social skills seem off) you may want to think about it.

    Remember going to get help is nothing to be ashamed about and your health and happieness is more impotant than a bit of embarassment.

    Hi thank you and I'm always indoors. I never go out if that helps.
    I have bad social and communication skills.

    ive always been dreadful at making friends - i have really bad social anxiety, but despite that, it didnt feel as though that was all.
    i recently got diagnosed with asd after the process starting a year ago (i found out that my mum had always thought that it was a possibility, but she hadnt really mentioned it to me). getting the diagnosis made everything seem like it made a bit more sense! its not easier to make friends but having a reason is nice.

    a lot of people have difficulty making friends, but if you feel like the level of difficulty you experience is particularly abnormal, it may be worth seeing someone about it as there may be an underlying condition. your gp is a good start as they can refer you to someone else - a school counsellor is another option.

    best of luck with everything, op! i hope it all goes well + your exams go well too!

    ps - mh condition = mental health condition

    Oh sorry mh is for mental health.
    You sound a bit like me a couple of years ago. Going to the doctors and getting refered to a psychiatrist really helped.
    It's common to get bouts of things like anxiety or depression and things. If you deal with it and seek support sooner it can often nip it in the bud early so it does't end up developing into a longer term issue.
    With special needs and things it's all a spectrum (you can be high or low on the spectrum of any). It's possible to be just off the spectrum at the lower end so not have the condition but still relate to it or ust to relate to one or two things about it and not others. If you feel you do relate to any (even if you don't think you have it) you can benefit from looking it up and seeing what advice is given. Alot of advice for special needs is dealing with the symptoms cos medication isn't an option for everybody or every condition. Means the advice works for anybody who relates even if they don't have the condition.
    It's simmilar for mental health problems too. You can feel depressed without having depression or anxious without having anxiety and the advice for the conditions helps for just the feelings too.

    Best wishes. Hope you can find something that helps.
    Oh and btw a lot of people have trouble socialising. Everybody just tries to cover it up cos they are embarassed. Try not to let embarassment stop you all the time and take some little risks like sitting next to somebody who is sitting alone and saying hi. They might be really greatful somebody opened up to them
    If you want to make some friends going to a club might help too. Things like scouts can be good for meeting people and keeping busy. Helped me.
