Question ??????? Confused teen

Hi! I don't really know what's wrong with me? For the past couple of months, I've been off and on really sad and maybe depressed and it's been affecting all aspects of my life, from school to relationships etc. I'll be having a really good week, happy with where I am in life and positive. The next week, not so much. After that week I start to feel sad and it quickly turns into depression or at least it feels like it. I get hopeless and I don't really care about anything. It's an overall sadness and it weighs on me. I think about dying, yet I wouldn't kill myself. It's terrible and most of the time I don't know how to get myself out of it. It slowly dies off and I haven't figured out how or why but the next week or two weeks after I feel fine again. It drives me and my family insane. What could it be???

I go to therapy for my family issues. I have a lawyer and now a social worker. For the past couple of years I've been through a lot of emotional and verbal abuse by my father. My therapist thinks he has a personality disorder, although she hasn't officially diagnosed him. Could all of it be affecting me like this? Eating away at me?

I really want to know what's going on with me!!

With what you are dealing with, it is no wonder you are getting cycles of depression. There is the father situation to start with and, at your age, hormonal irregularities are common and do not help. Tell your therapist about this and see if you need to ake a (mild) antidepressant to keep you on a more even keel. It need not be a permanent thing, especially if you are continuing to work on dealing with your life. Sera
