17 and Depressed

I just started my senior year of high school just about 5 or 6 weeks ago. Recently I've been hating to look at myself in the mirror and when I do all I think is that I'm ugly and immature. If I could rip my face off I really would. I got a job recently too and I saw it as an opportunity to reinvent myself, to be that person I've always wanted to be. I could do this but my mother is standing in my way. She tells me I'm going to get fat everytime I eat, she points out my flaws at any given time. She doesn't notice how uncomfortable it makes me.

My mood has dipped down so low that I can't even get out of bed to go to school. I want to be a vet because I love animals but now I don't even think I have the skills to graduate. I want my mom to be there to alk to me, but she only sees me as this girl who is trying to sneak out and party. I usually don't go anywhere except my boyfriend's home. I don't have any real friends, friends that would invite me out. Everything is going wrong when this is supposed to be my happiest year of school.

I feel alone and gross and I'm depressed. If anyone can help me. Please, I need it.

Re: 17 and Depressed

Try talking to your mom telling her how you feel. Just have a sit and talk.
As for the other things. You have to learn to love yourself with all the imperfections coming first. If you don't love yourself who will?

You also need to stop worrying what other people think and say. There will always be some one that will have something to say and people love to judge. It is in our nature. If anyone ever says anything bad about you or about anything that is yours just laugh it off. Why get mad and frustrated when that same person is having a grate day.
