    I don't really know what to say. I'm unhappy. I've been unhappy since I was 13, and I'm 24 now. The only reason I'm still here is because I'm afraid to do something, I'm afraid I'll mess up like I mess up everything and then everyone will know that I'm not okay...everyone will judge me and I'll be even more alone then I've been.

    I don't remember a time when I was happy...like actually content with life. I can't afford to get help. I really wish I could because I've just about given up but I can barely afford to buy groceries some weeks. I either am or want to cry all the time. I don't know what to do but I'm afraid.I don't want to live like this

    Hi itscoldoutthere i am sorry you are so sad. I know it is scary reaching out for help but you can do it. You can talk to a teacher a counselor at your school someone you trust ok
    they will get you support you need. You doctor can help you as well I hope talking here can release some of the sadness you feel and take away some of the loneliness

    Welcome to the forum. It's ok to cry as test releases the pain and hurt you feel. You MUST NOT ACT ON YOUR FEELINGS AS THAT WILL NOT HELP ANYONE. LIFE IS PRECIOUS. Keep posting your thoughts and you will find great support from site. Do not think you are on your own in suffering but are among people who understand your feelings. Take care.

    Thank you guys for even responding. I'm so used to getting brushed aside that I was sure this would just go unheard (or should I say read). I don't really trust many people because of the way I've been treated so I wouldn't know who to go to, but I'll look into counselling at school and try to find time to go to the doctors I guess. And yes, I guess when you keep everything to yourself because you get brushed aside when you try to talk about it, depression can last this long.

    But thanks again. I appreciate it :)

    Do you live in the US? I would contact the local food bank and get your hiney over there to get some stuff. There is no shame in it, that's what it's there for!! If there is not one, try contacting local churches or synagogues and let them know you are struggling with food insecurity and do they have any recommendations? Often they can refer you to the correct social service or meet your need themselves.

    Poverty definitely aggravates depression. I feel for you and we're here if you need to talk.

    Sure it can. Depression can last a lifetime if left untreated.

    Also welcome to SF, you and I are very close age range, I'm 25, suffering depression since very young too. I hope you find lots of support here :)
