Feeling very depressed
14 year old female
For about 2 or 3 years now, I have been feeling very depressed. I have just started to harm myself, as I thought that I would feel better, but that just made me hate myself even more, for doing something so stupid. Even though I felt this way, I still continued to harm myself. I started to talk to my 2 best friends, who are sisters, and they always tried to help me. Recently one of them sat me down and had a serious talk to me about having a talk to a professional, because they are really worried about me. That's when I thought of Kids Helpline.
I am a simple teenager, who finds it difficult to talk to people face to face about serious problems. But I emailed Kids Helpline and have just started to tell her about my life. It has been a lot easier at school, as I know that someone is looking out for me. Teenage life is a very difficult time and I think it gets easier when you talk to people!
