Re: i'm depressed and don't know what to do
Hi Globodave, sounds like you are in a bad place right now, I have been there too. You have made the right move already by acknowledging that you need help. Do you have a family doctor you could get in to see? Maybe you could call without telling your parents if you don't want to burden them. I understand that because my parents have a lot of problems too and I don't need my Mom to have another thing to stress over. If no family doctor, how about the wrestling coach at school? You could ask if he has a few minutes to talk in private and then just show him a print out of your post. Also, does your school have a psychologist or counselor you could meet with to discuss what you're going through? The main thing is to know that this is a temporary thing, and you CAN get help to get back to your old self. Just like with a broken bone, you can get treatment and heal and soon you'll be 100%again. There are people who really do CARE what happens to you. Let them help you. Write back here and let us know how you're doing, and if you need to let your feelings out this is a perfect place to do it.
