What's the point in breathing or believing. It's so hard to go through everyday with a smile and be a teen struggling with a major depressive disorder and anxiety. Not sure where to turn or who to turn to. I cut cause when I see the open wound it feels like all the pain is being released. My dad dosen't get it nether does my counslor. I don't want to be hospitalized anymore but I also don't want to breathe anymore either.

Do not allow how you are feeling take control of your actions. Trust me. I am 41 years old and when I was a teenager I felt exactly how you are feeling now. I understand how you want this feeling to end. It's tiring. It's painful.

BUT, it won't last forever. I know it is hard to even i magazine but it is true.

Keep looking for someone that understands. Eventually you will find one person. Until then, keep posting here. We understand.


I understand, I've been there. Still kind of am but it's defintely better. More manageable.

I know it's hard to see the good but at the very very least be glad that you're experiencing this illness during the age of technology and the internet. The stigma for illnesses like ours is slowly but surely dissapating and now we have places like this where we can open up and feel safe.

Please don't hurt yourself. I started cutting myself when I was 13 and it seems helpful only because you haven't found the right coping skills, but that's ok because you're here now and we will support you.

If you need someone to talk to feel free to let me know. My parents didn't let me talk about my feelings and convinced me not to talk about it to anyone... 3 suicide attempts later and I've found the magic in simply having someone to listen to your feelings and thoughts. So I'm here if you need it.
