I was very depressed
14 year old female
When I was 13, I called Kids Helpline because I was VERY depressed. I wouldn't eat, I was crying ALL the time and was always just generally sad due to my best friend ditching me, my boyfriend leaving me, and my mum being bashed.
When I first called Kids Helpline they asked a few basic questions that made me feel safe, and like they wanted to talk to me (I wasn't used to that so it felt really good).
Eventually I got talking and my counsellor helped me out so much. I am now almost better but I'm still a bit sad every now and again. I am so thankful for everything they have helped me out with!
