    I'm just a thirteen year old girl who needs help. I guess people would say "you're too young to be that unhappy". It all got worse when my mum saw all my self-harm marks…I dunno, it's been getting worse...and I'm here...

    Hey Roxy, welcome to SF. You can be depressed at any age...I probably started to feel suicidal when I was around your age, or before that. Since your mom saw your self-harm marks, have you discussed it? I know it can be scary to seek help, but it sounds like you could benefit from it. Posting here is a good start in letting out your feelings.

    Your age is nothing unusual. It's common for symptoms to show early. I was diagnosed when I was 13, and that was after years of hiding it. We're glad you're here. Welcome to SF.

    Hi Roxy. Glad you are here. I can only say what others have said. Sadly, you are not too young to be in a lot of pain. Many people younger than you have posted here. And all are welcomed and heard with equal respect. As it should be.

    You said that it all got worse when your mum saw the self harm marks. What did she do about it that made things worse? If you can talk about it, that's great. If not, thats okay too. Just glad you are here. keep posting. As much as you want.

    Don't worry chick I started my depression around 11-12 years old. If you wanna talk that's fine, I like to give people a self-boost to keep going.
