I needed to vent
16 year old female
When I was 13, my parents divorced. I had to choose who I wanted to live with. I had to move away from my dad, then my dad moved 3 hours drive away.
I went to my counsellor at school and she told me I had depression. I felt really lonely and sad all the time and I started hurting myself, because I felt like I deserved it. I started going to parties and getting involved in drugs and alcohol.
One day, I went to a doctor, and was told I was pregnant. I didn't know who the father was. I started feeling suicidal and tried to end my own life many, many times. In my attempts to try and end my life, I ended my baby's instead.
I went to Kids Helpline to talk to someone, I needed to vent. I got heaps of counselling and now, 3 years later, I am back on track, and trying to help others get over their depression, self-hate, self-harm and suicidal issues. Thanks, Kids Helpline.
