So when I was younger (about in year 9) I was just really sad almost all the time and spent my time alone crying or just numb. I had some suicidal thoughts drift in and out my head but was actually too scared to do anything although I strongly considered how I would do it. My family life isn’t the best as I have controlling parents that don’t let me leave the house or even talk to my friends at home through my phone (i broke these rules of course) and as an extroverted person this could have been the reasons for me being depressed. Anyways after a while I was pretty much completely fine, ignoring the small, usual bursts of sadness everyone gets but now, it’s much much worse (in a sense the feeling is stronger but I’m not suicidal like before). It’s like some days I feel so lonely and trapped in a bubble by still don’t want to talk to anyone or socialise at all and other days I feel like I’m a bad person and don’t deserve anything. Sometimes it gets so bad I cry uncontrollably, start shaking and can’t breathe. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me and feel like I’m being dramatic but I just never feel 100% right and I don’t know why.

Am I being dramatic ??

I don't think so. I do think you need to speak to a professional about how you're feeling though.

Could be depression. It's not normal to want to kill yourself so I say definitely look into and see. The NHS website can tell you enough about depression and possibly bipolar, that way you're able to gauge if you think it could be and you're able to go speak to a gp about it easier.

Hi,


Definitely not being dramatic, your pain is real and valid.

As one of the previous replies suggested, would probably be a good idea to speak to a professional - GP is normally the easiest way to start.

In the mean time allow yourself to be as kind to yourself as possible. Do things that make you happy. Acknowledge your feelings but also that it's not your fault and doesn't make you a bad person.

If you want someone to talk to whilst waiting for professional help there are plenty of services out their that offer that via phone or text. For example, the Mix, Young Minds and Kooth (first to go up to age 25, Kooth up to 19). Then there are places like Samaritans, Support line and Saneline for any age range.

Hope that helps.
