  7. Losing interest

    look im going to be honest,i think that all of us have depression , but we don't realise it , until it start affecting our lives. i think that they when your depressed you consider it sadness and that it's part of life and th difficulty of growing up, but when it's start affecting your life negitivly , that's when it becomes a problem. And for how to get better i truly don't know, im experiencing majour depression, but i've come to realise that giving advice and talking about my problems here are really helping me a lot and i trully am starting to enjoy helping others as well as being helped! try it even if it's once, i garante that you'll feel better beacause when you're giving advice , you will also give your opinion and your experience with the problem and with out realising it you open up to yourself and will strt to fell better , it helps a lot trust me. welcome to depression forum! i truly hope you'll like here, and do tell me how everything turned out in the end! hope you'll get better soon! ~MARIA
  8. hey, im going to be honest and tell you how truly you can fix the situation. first i need to say that i also suffer form depression and anxiety so i understand you completly. but YOU NEED TO GET A JOB! that's a must , you need to be able to support yourself even if your boyfriend leaves you, and you need to start making money you're an adut. have you ever though tha tmaybe your boyfriend is reacting that way because you don't have a job and rely on him to work and make money, and i didn't say that what is he doing is okay i mean the house should stay clean after you clean it and you have the right to be mad about this, but the number one step to fix your problem is to get a job. after that try and start hanging out with your friends more that always sheers me up . and you don't need to clean the house often, i mean you have to talk to your boyfriend about those problems and i can't tell you how to fix them because it's your relationship but what i can do is give you advice, first talk to him about the cleaning problem, then about the figting problem. you need to be selfish just this once because this is making you depressed and is having a major side effect one your life, and if you do get a job and talk to your boyfriend and he still acts the same and does nothing to get better you need to leave him! i know it must be hard but if you did truly love him you wouldn't have those kind of problems. he can't keep treating you like a maid just to keep cleaning the house. but you need to get a job , if you don't trust me it will get worse, and besides if you get a job you will not feel so lonely and will spend your time working and getting money that way you could support yourself if you decided that you need to go on your own and make yourself happy. and i woul also recommend after getting a job to go see a psychiatrist ( just to vent your problems to someone it could be your friend or someone close to you if you don't feel ok talking to a stranger) just to get live support and care for whatever desicion you decide to make. i also recommend to tell your friends about the problems your having. i hope everything works uout for you! and i truly hope your boyfriend will start getting better, please do tell me what you decided to do! and if you fixed your problems!
  9. My mom makes me hate myself

    ii can't say I know how you must feel, but what I can say is that im experiencing something like that myself but every one of us reacts differently to each situation, first I would suggest that if you're old enough move away, or if you can't on your own find a relative, maybe someone close to your dad or a friend... when you do that before you leave talk to your mum or at least leave a message for her or something do not let her know where you're staying, she needs time on her own to think about how her actions are affecting you, you tell her that she is making life hard for you, tell her about the beating let her remember them, explain with details and try explaning how you were feeling at that time, i know that you cannot stand her or do ot want to talk to her but you must before you leave tell her about her action, tell her about how she's taking her own frustrations on you, and that this is not how mothers should treat their child, tell her about the bullying and remind her aout your leaning problem, she need to fully be aware of her action so she can start behaving as a mother, and then tll her that you're moving out of course she'll be furious , she'll ask where and with whom, but don't tell her, just say that you're going to move out to let her think how she has been treating you and acting towards you, tell her that you want her toget better so you can start to fix your bond but will only do so if she gets better , see a psychiatrist for her bipolar issue, and start to be aware of her actions towards you and how she treated you in the past. tell her to get better tell her you love her but you have to think about yourself for once and that you need to do this. second, i've experience little of bullying myself, i mean there is nothing i can say or do to help you feel better about it, you just have to try and keep it in the past, but i can tell you what have i done about it in the past. first the kids were being mean to mean and judging everything i do and calling me name, but after a while i've decied that i don't want to let it slide anymore, if im happy with myself why should i let other make me feel that way, and that's when i realised that if i like something ot i like myself then i don't care about what others thinkand i did stick up for myself in front of the whole class and i realised that when the bullies see that you don't care about their comments or action, that your sticking up for yourself, then and only then will they realise that your not a weal prey anymore so they will move on to someone who is easier. now im not saying that you should feel what i have felt , but for the people out there being bullied , the desperation of getting rid of these bulliers is strongers than the missing feelings or the strong will or character, so i suggest when you notice that someone i trying to get you in that position don't let it slide pretend that you're strong and don't care even if it's not true , but you need to defend yourself from the firt time to show them that you are not to be messed with. and even try to talk to afriend about it get people to stick up for you maybe not by talking to you maybe by defending yourself they will have the urge to help you and will do the wright thing by defending you, or try talking to a parent or a teacher... ( sorry im bablling a lot about bullying but it is happening and i can't not give mt advice and experience about it) also try to talk to your mom why she alk negetivly about your dad so much get her to open up , you can do this before or after you leave, you can wait for her to get better and then let her open up to you or before you leave, also try talking with your dad and tell him that your leaving, you can tell him where your going to stay but make sure your mom doesn't know , specially if you're staying at some relative of your father. i really hope it works out, and i hope i didn't bore you with my long speech/advice, and please do keep me updated about what happened and what did you decide to do!
  10. don't know what to do

    hey, I guess im depressed. · 1) It's been 2 weeks and I don't feel a single emotion unless it's happiness, just got our grades and I failed every single test. my parents can't stand me , im failing everything and my brothers are so good in school I feel like dying seriously I mean I though about it and I even tried planning it . my parents are the main reason , they used to beat me when I was a kid but now they stopped (im 15 by the way) now they just insult me and call me names ,it's like im never good enough. but I know that they love me I don't if it's enough but they do. 2) I have a lot of friends but the thing is I feel usless around them they forget me when i need them but when they need me it's like im their own toy to mess and play with . i never had any true guy friend and im beggining t think im ugly, no guy approaches me and sticks around , never has anyone done anything nice enough for me or never a boy has had a crush on me. i mean it's not the boy problem but i think im just looking for attention or love or care i don't know i feel pathetic and useless. 3) i run from my problems. i run from difficulties or when i have a difficult test, i mean i just let myself get distracted by anything i can find even if it's sleeping. i tend to forget or lock away my feelings just so i don't feel responsible for anything or get sad or jelous ( about others life) . 4) i've tried so hard to put this wall up just so everyone thinks that im strong and happy, and everyone does i think that's why none of my friends does help with what's going on with me, even though I've broken down a couple of times in front of them. 5) im just lost i don't know what to do with my life , im not good at anything it's like me against the world, i hate myself my life my everything and im just too coward to end it. 6) i want to end it. but i haven't planned the perfect plan. i mean i don't think i ever will have the courage to do it. im too afraid of failing and living with the shame of my parents and friends. and it's very obvious for anyone of my entourage that im going through some difficult time, but in my country no one takes depression or anything else serious I just need support , and I need advice on how to study because I keep letting myself get distracted by anything and I fail every test , I have to at least do good in school so I can start fixing my other problems. please help!
