hi, i'm a 16 year old, and since about December 2012 i have been feeling very low. To begin with i thought it was just hormonal issues, but then i started to feel worse. By March this year i had to stop attending my college course as i felt anxious when going into lessons and eventually decided to quit as the pressure was staring make me feel constantly on edge and even sometimes physically ill, when i was in a class room surrounded by lots of people. it was when i left college that i began to feel isolated form my group of friends and i felt alone, even when i was surrounded by alot of people. As i had no job or no college to attend i spent most of my time home alone, it was then that i started to feel low, and every morning when i woke up i couldn't see the point in even getting out of bed and starting the day. I tried hard to speak to my 'friends' about how i was feeling, but most of them just didn't understand and thought i was over reacting. still to this day i feel depressed and at the moment very alone as-well, i'm constantly sitting by myself and crying, and i never really want to leave my house, yes i'll admit it Ive had slight thoughts of death and suicide but cant say that im at suicidal point yet, im scared of what the future will hold and im not sure if this is normal or if i really am depressed? if someone could reply and just give me some reassurance that im not the only one feeling this way i would really appreciate as i really do need to speak to someone, that can understand where im coming from, thankyou x
