any advice on how to deal with TERRIBLE depression and anxiety involving cutting and sleeping for hours on end? I am very young, only 16 and im scared out of my mind. I also struggle with derealization on the daily. very upsetting I cry on the regular. If someone could please give some insight it would mean so much. especially on the derealization. im terrified. thank you !!!

I am so sorry to hear of what you are going through, especially when so young. Unfortunately I am not in a position to advise you on your specific issues, but if you are desperate and feeling alone I am here if you want someone just to listen.

Katlyn, derealisation is your mind's way of 'removing' or distancing you from the stress you're experiencing. When your anxiety is treated it will resolve.

Do your parents know how you feel? You must discuss this with them and tell them how you feel, that's what parents are for.

I strongly suggest that if you haven't already you should also talk to your doctor about this with a view to obtaining some relief by taking a medication for a while.
