I NEED someone. I'm only 16. In a pretty decent band. A member of Student Government at School. President of the Guitar club at my school. A member of DECA, and FBLA and many other things, and yet all this means nothing since I feel welcome nowhere. I've checked the symptoms for mild recurring depression and I matched half of them. I just need someone to talk to. I don't feel I should burden my problems on someone else by calling them and saying "I have depression" -- However, I made a cry for help on Facebook and Myspace that fundamentally said " I NEED HELP. SOMEONE HELP ME " No one had the time to help.

I just feel so tired lately. A friend of mine died lately. Know what i feel after his passing? Absolutely nothing. I hate these feelings. I don't feel welcome anywhere anymore except with the guys in my band, But guess what? Those guys never want to hang out unless we HAVE to. And guess when we have to? Band practice.

I want someone to talk to. I want a girlfriend. Not because of the physical needs, but the emotional factors. I want someone who's there for me REGARDLESS of what I'm going through instead of my parents who have admitted they're embarressed of me or my Student Council mentor who today told me that I'm 'liability' to the Council. He asked me whether I wanted to continue being in Studnet Government which is his way of telling me to drop.

The one person I really would feel comfortable talking about all of this is my Ex, and guess what? She doesn't want to talk to me.
I'm sorry, I feel so pathetic posting about this on the forums of Ultimate Guitar, but, you're my last hope seeing as my friends don't seem to care at the moment.

And yes, I know I have so much going for me in my life, it means absolutely nothing if you feel you have ABSOLUTELY NO ONE to share it all with.

You're 16 and your friend just died. That's normal.

If you're worried, see a professional.

Also, never look up symptoms for things. You'll just get paranoid.

Look for someone who is open and willing to talk about anything. You just need a friend to talk to. Try to meet new people.

Self diagnosis is one of the leading causes of teenage suicide. I'm not denying that depression would seem most likely, but it could just be a bad case of "feeling down".

I would see a doctor about this, and get a professional opinion

It's been like this since before he died. Had these feelings for a good four months or more now. But, I plan to see a professional tomorrow.


And I know the Pit is the wrong place for it, but, I need someone. Simply as that. Just need some help.

Write music, write lyrics, write in a journal. Stuff like that helps me when I feel alone.

Okay, Okay. Sorry. Sorry. Pit wrong place to go.

+1, self diagnosis is teh worst thing you could do; depression isn't just a set of symptoms but a whole other raft of things, if you're worried about it see your doctor.


However, I do think I know how you feel; I've had a pretty shit year myself, just know this:

I felt the same way, minus the death..... but i do know how that feels.
And I still kindo do. The only way to get out of it is to not think you are depressed. Think you are happy. Quit your band and start a new one. To me your bandmates are just not bandmates. Dont look for a girlfriend. She will come to you and you will know who. Lay in bed, watch the brave little toaster, and eat pretzels and drink 7up. That makes me feel better

If you need to vent the fine people at The Hugging Thread are there for you buddy

I've thought of going in there, but honestly, I think one of the few things that'd make me feel more pathetic than I do would be hoping someone you don't know might pretend to hug you.
That's just me, no offense to anyone who frequents it.

Yeah, echoing here, but everyone is gonna go thru the depressed stage of teenage years. EVERYONE, and i mean it, EVERYONE, has been thru the depression stage, or will go thru it, and alot of people get out of it fine.

i went through almost exactly the same thing earlier this year, when i was also 16

#28
Wow im not gonna lie ur life sounds exactly lik mine last year. What i did i quit my band which was a metal band and started writing and playing music that made me feel good. Started turning my feelings into lyrics. Only listened to music that made me feel good if it didnt i deleted it. Surround urself with friends who actually do care if none of them do that means u need new friends.

I understand what you're saying but it's more than that. We try to cheer the folk up and give advice
#31
no offense or anything but welcome to being a young adult. im pretty things like this have happened to everyone your age and up. i feel how you feel right now, just kinda alone, tired and empty. not sad but not happy, just there. i lost 2 or 3 buddies in car accidents, had break ups, no one to talk to, a dysfunctional band, all that high school stuff. just keep your head up it gets better.

find new friends
because obviously your current ones dont really care about you
and as a few people said before NEVER diagnose yourself you just become paranoid beyond belief
see a shrink and if need me talk to your parents, seems weird i know but sometimes there the only ones there to talk to
and listen to alot of music. especially ska that always makes my feel better

Go get it checked out mate. You honestly sound like me. I haven't had a death or a friend but I don't have the emotional support of friends. Only one person if any.

If you're depressed it might be just that you need friends, and then only you can help yourself there. Or it could a chemical imbalance and drugs would help. Or it could be you need to talk about your friends death and you have no one to do that with. I don't know, only you will. But I'd go see a councellor.

first relax
i know that the people says that its only because youre a teenager
i am to, i am 15
i had depression last year (but was different)
first, look for someone who can listen to you, im saying, if you didnt find it in your home, school, band, etc
you can find it here maybe
if you came here for help, i will try to help you
dont feel pathetic for looking help here, anyone can do it
if you want a girlfriend, just wait
she will come to you at the right moment (ive never had a girlfriend and im still in love with a girl)
try to relax with your guitar, bass or anything you have
and please, dont listen grunge or something sad or heavy, it will only make you feel worst
go with a professional, that will help you
and you will know when you dont need it anymore
just, try to face the next day with a better smile that the one you dont have today
Hola.

You're depressed, it happens to everyone and usually teenagers.
Others on here are like this too: Tushmeister made a very very moving thread about it a week back, I hope you can take consolation and some solace in the fact that you aren't the only one and you'll not be the last.
Other than that, do what some of us do to get through this (mine own self included): find something to keep living for and find something to dedicate yourself to. I know it seems hard now because you might feel there isn't anything, but keep looking and look very hard for it - you'll find something in the end to work hard on and that will keep you going.
Other than that, go to the Hugging Thread and they'll help you feel a bit better

i went through that a bit at school but more anger. when you are in your 20s and you realise there is nothing there even when you have a musical talent..10 people show to gigs even tho you put your heart and soul into it, family still look down on you for not being the good lawyer who plays classical piano and for me i was so obnoxious i lost all my friends and even bandmembers dont want to know me and if they could find a replacement they would immediately. Work sucks and you are broke all the time, girlfriend thinks your a loser because you cant have real relationships due to no friends.

Life sucks..carpe diem.
