  1. I don't know, it doesn't matter to him whether or not I'm depressed, I still need to "solve my own problem" and "do things'. Because apparently it's not a big deal, and I have the "luxury" of being depressed and being able to do nothing. He's the embodiment of "tough love", he said it himself that he's not one of those "nice" parents. He just does not understand at all.
  2. Thank you, I just don't feel like I can talk to him, I know he cares but his whole attitude makes him hard to open up to, I've never done it before. I think I might just ask to see someone and go from there. Thanks for responding.
  3. Hi, I'm a 15 year old boy, for context on my experiences, read my other posts. Yesterday, my dad confronted me asking what was going on, my sleep schedule's ****ed up, I was in my room most of the time I was awake, etc. I really didn't want to tell him as I had my reasons, but he cornered me and I told him that I had depression, well at least that I thought I had depression. Well, turns out my reasons were correct, it went exactly as well as I thought it would. At the very least he believed me, but then went on to talk about how it could just be my teenage hormones, about how I "chose to deal with it" was not good, how he didn't trust doctors (although he isn't completely against seeing someone), basically ignorant of the nature of depression. He seemed to care at least, I cried in front of him, but barely talked, which in his words near the end of the lecture showed that "I wasn't taking it seriously". He only once hinted at the fact that he may have been too tough on me, but then said he was tough on me because "the real world is". Today, he made me go outside to do some exercise to "get up", again ignorant of the fact that it's the depression itself making me this way, not the other way around. This was exactly why I didn't want to tell him, at least I could be left alone. Now he knows, and I'm gonna have to deal with it.
  4. Yeah, definitely seems like an anxiety disorder, and probably panic attacks. Yeah, he also has depression, they coincide.
  5. Hey, I got a question for y'all. I talked to this kid online, he's Dutch and 13. He told me that if he made random, spammy messages when he breaks down that I should not take it seriously, I already knew he had depression but I kept in mind that he had breakdowns/panic attacks. Then, later on, it happened, I managed to get him to calm down I think and got him to talk about it, I will attach a link to screenshots, it is a lot but it is all relevant and important to understand what mental disorder he might have. Forgive the premature diagnoses, I was just bouncing off some ideas based on what he told me, I'm not a professional. But what I'm certain of is that he likely has some kind of anxiety disorder. I have encouraged him to get help as you will see but he said that he doesn't want to get help so I wanted to post here instead to see if you can help me better understand what he might be suffering from. Thanks in advance for any responses. These are the relevant screenshots. He also told me about when he was rejected by two girls, that seemed to really hit him hard, idk if that's useful. Some of it might not be in proper order, so some messages may not have context. The last image is a reddit post that he made, that he sent to me. He gave me approval to post. https://imgur.com/a/M5Vu4EY
  6. Hi, I'm a 15 year old boy, for context on my experiences, read my other posts. I haven't posted here in a while, so decided to get this off my chest here. A while ago, I made a post about a girl I met on Reddit being disallowed from talking to me and I was pretty sad then, but I've made peace with it. The good thing is, at least I can still talk a little in her PMs so that's good. She always makes my day better even when we only talk for a little bit, she's so sweet, and cute too. I feel some type of way when she says something nice, when she puts a little smiley face, I can't really describe it. I haven't felt this way with anyone else I've talked to online, I might have a crush on her I don't know. Well, to give an update, we're still keeping in touch, just talking and I've told her that I love her and her back, we did get a little flirty the last time we talked. I haven't told her about my feelings, because I'm still not entirely sure if I do have a crush, but it seems that however I feel about her, it seems to be mutual. I'll wait a bit and see. She did make a post calling me her "bf" so that's something, and I have told her that she was a good "girl friend". Whatever the case may be, I really appreciate and love her, and I long for the day when we can finally meet and actually talk. Those two and a half years are going by pretty slowly, but it's the only thing giving me hope. So yeah, sorry this isn't super negative and depressing, thought I'd post something positive for once.
  7. Thanks for the kind words. As for any avenue for help, in past posts I talk about this, I'm not in a position to get help anywhere. To keep this short, I'm homeschooled, living in a foreign country, and I live in a very local suburban neighborhood with not much of anything in the way of mental help, and even some of the ones I found were a couple kilometers away and I can't go outside that far without my parents wanting to know where I'm going, and they aren't free.
  8. Thank you, and yeah, it hurts that they can only ever seem to treat me like this. Thanks for the kind words.
  9. Thank you, and I agree and believe me, I want to do these things but I just have no motivation to, and their treatment of me isn't helping at all. I've tried to start doing these things on my own, but it never worked. Yeah, my situation sucks and all I can do is push through it.
  10. Thank you, my parents are normal people, they have good intentions but it seems like they have just gave up trying, at least with my mom. My dad is the kind of "tough love" parent, he treats me mostly like I'd be treated in the "real world".
  11. From my memory, I've only ever heard "I love you" from them maybe a handful of times, maybe that's not a big deal, I don't expect them to tell me that everyday or whatever, but I can't even count how many times they've lectured, and at times berated me. It's been that way since I was around 13. In terms of other compliments, very sporadic, it pales in comparison to the lectures I get.
  12. Thank you for the reply. I'm sorry you had to go through that and I'm glad you're in a better place now, in 2 and 1/2 years or so when I turn 18 I hope that I can get out and get the help I need but until then, I can only endure it. They are good people at heart and I know they have good intentions but I think they just don't know what to do and have just gave up trying, they told me so themselves, that whatever they tell me, it's ultimately up to me to change like the flip of a switch. I can relate to not meeting expectations, I am far below theirs and it's eating away at me.

  13. Thank you, I appreciate it. Well, on some level, I do believe it, and it's likely that there will always be that small piece of my mind that believes that. I try not to but it's just there and I can't help it. I wish they could understand too but it seems they don't and I can't help that. Thanks again for the kind words.
