Question: I'm 16 and heavy depressed and it's affecting my work?
Hey, I'm a 16 yo guy and well, my question says it all. Firstly, I feel like there's a black cloud constantly hanging over my head all the time. I have friends, but my best friend is leaving soon. It really doesn't affect the depression tooo much. My problem is when I go to school, I just want to go home again. I need motivation in the morning to get up. Anything that makes me feel like there's something out there worth getting up for. And I skip a lot of my classes to go home early sometimes. And it's affecting my work and performance. I'm tired all the time, and have NO interest in playing guitar and writing anymore. I'm an straight A student, and don't want to let this rule my life. And my parents do NOT understand me. This might sound like the typical 'teen thing' to say, but honestly. I want to go out with my friends to halloween parties, metal concerts and live gigs, but they always have an excuse for why it's 'bad' for me. I even considered suicide this week. On the verge of that. I'm currently taking citalopramhidrobromied anti-depressants, but it doesn't seem to do much. I've been depressed since I was 12 after traumatic events in my childhood. I've seen more than 7 psycologist, and psychiatrists, and have been diagnosed with OCD. And to make matters worse, I just feel like I need to die all the time! PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
Thanks you :'(
this opposite may help:
Life has a lot of hurdles we all have to get over like depression. It is well worth learning about it and he psychology. Cognitive therapy and some therapits can be very helpful and clinics tend to use a sliding scale with free meds to boot. The meds can help you to see the new attitude you have to have, but you still have to change attitude. The best thing I have found is dropping negative words. Dropping negative thoughts was hard, but words got it before it started.
There are two other problems. One is that at your age they say we revert to the mentality of a six year old and our decisions are very poor so a lot of this soves itself with age, experience and knowledge. But the other problem is your environment. Perhaps online study for a GED.
It's all really worth the effort, because a lot really can be done. Even if learning in tough, it's so rewarding. I really enjoy that part. Oh yeah and practice thankfulness everydayt on everything you can think of. I do believe it's the number one cure for negativity in general. You may be surprised at how great you feel when you master some of this, but there is always something else to keep our interest and to strive for.
Dear Brother, As a kriyaban I am telling you the actual fact for any kind of depression.means how to cure? simply you do daily meditation.morning and evening,with the help of your meditation centers near by you.and you daily visit your religious centre.don't miss daily for one month only.than you get result.
between these days you avoid to go any type of parties.try to spend your time at home and school.nothing worry about your depression.
This is not going to be what you want to hear (sorry) however here goes:
1. find a psychologist whom wants to delve into the issues/trauma that started all of this, and stick with it. I believe, most often, drugs are a bandage over the sore/problem. It helps with symptoms but does not heal the problem.
