I'm a 13 year old girl and I have been feeling confused lately. I have constantly been feeling that living everyday is becoming more of a chore than anything and not a blessing. I try to convince myself that every teenager goes through this and its nothing serious, but lately I feel like it's something more. Getting up in the morning is a huge struggle because I can't seem to find a reason TO get up and I have notice that I start to count the days down for no reason. I am always feeling insecure about everything and my appetite is slowly decreasing, (I stopped eating lunch and started eating after school instead.) I feel like I am just there, not really paying attention just letting life pass by. I have a hard time paying attention in school and catch myself day dreaming all the time. I would have thought that someone would've noticed my strange switch in personality, but my parents work such late hours so they can't. Maybe even my friends would notice, but I go to a small school and my friends are pretty judgmental and unconcern with me. I just feel lonely, tired for no reason, and feeling like screaming and crying all the time. I have looked up my symptoms and I don't want to self diagnose because I am pretty sure everyone goes through this as a teen, but I wanted an outsiders opinion. I would have talked to my parents about it, but I know they wouldn't believe me because they are the old fashion parents who might just think I am doing this for attention (and too scared to tell them.) I am not depressed or suicidal, but I hate to admit the thoughts do cross my mind sometime. I just want help, someone to tell me what is happening because I hate living like this.
