    being the youngest in my family i feel like i have almost a clingy personality and i always need attention. when i dont get that attention i go into a mood that leads me into depression. i dont get the desired attention from family, friends, boyfriend, or teachers. i hate begging for it because i hate feeling needy but if i dont get it i go crazy
    HELP!

    Hi, I can relate to this a little, as I tend towards the dependant personality type myself. Yet when my mental health is better the neediness is alot less, also when I have a wider range of stuff going on and more to occupy my mind it is better. I think its something psychological that needs to be sorted out in some way, as more attention from people doesn't fix it for me just reinforces it.

    Perhaps working with a good therapist can help you, sometimes this is of great benefit to me.
