okay well a friend of mine is well not depressed but going through like a mid life crisis....even though hes only 17.
hes been like this before about the same time last year.
he gets really angry all the time.
he plainly just doesnt give a flying duck about anything.
hes going to break up with his girlfriend.
he was trying to kill himself a few days ago.
i love him to pieces but its driving me mental.

i want to find some kind of treatment for him.
unconventional or not.
even if it means taking him to an exorcist.
he knows im a nut and im sure he'll do it if im willing to be there with him

so yeah, anything that may help him....
i really want to help him get back to the boy i remember.

nothing silly, im really stressing her.

thanks kids

He could just be really depressed. I'm not sure of any names of conditions where it makes the person angry and do un-ordinary things, but maybe you should take him to a professional?
My Uncle acted in similar ways from depression and my family didn't do anything about it, and he committed suicide. So I would take him somewhere to help him professionally.

To me that sounds like depression.

That is depression. Get him to have a psych assessment, that's what I did.
#6
he's definatly depressed. a good thing (only small wont cure it of course), is touch. like, justlayign a hand on his shoulder, hugs if your into the male bondign thing, just like, touch, it means alot and its recomended by psychiatrists
me you


if you notice any spelling mistakes, or grammar stuff, its cos i have tourettes syndrome and i cbf correcting it, cos that involves reading it over. so get the F*** over it.
#7
Any particular reason for all of this?
Seems like the logical question to ask.

its really weird.
i remember last year when his old girlfriend ****ed him over he got really mad and stuff, i dont blame him, she was a real bitch to him.
but theres nothing going on i mean, for the most part everything seems to be going great for him.
but i just want to know if theres anything i can do.
i mean im not psych or anything.
and i dont have the money to take him to one.
let alone know if he'd even go.
but i like hugs so im guessin that would work.
hes not a touchy person tho.
in almost 2 years i've only got about 3 hugs out of him and they were all because there was something wrong with me.
i just wanna be able to do something

i've tried getting him to talk.
he does and he knows im there for him whenever he needs me.
but being there and him talking doesnt seem to be having any affect on him.
I've asked my mum and shes reccomended Ginseng.
Is there anything else worth trying?
he also sometimes suffers from insomnia

#13

Your friend = you

then i'd say teenage angst, i know and have known a lot of people like that, its jus a phase that a lot o people go through... if all else fails get him smoking and drinking every day, it'll give him something to live for. maybe he feels trapped by his girlfriend.

I don't know about Australia but there is a psychological thing called S.A.D. - Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Its Winter in Oz atm but I don't know if you have really short days and lack of sunlight like Britain in the Winter?

Apparently lack of sunlight can make some people show symptoms of depression which would make sense if it is an annual thing.
#23
yeah that might be it, sunlight is a natural anti depressant lack of it therefor leads to... you guessed it....


A.I.D.S.

...and depression

Well seeing as how you are a girl and he's a guy, it shouldnt' be hard to comfort him, not saying have sex with him, I feel like being as helpful as i can right now. I had a similar problem with a girl I knew a while back. She seemed very depressed and i didn't know why. She was good looking, she was popular, nothing really added up. Just spend a lot of time with him, like said before hug him, make contact with him, don't make him feel isolated whatsoever. Encourage him to get back with his girlfriend maybe? Or you can start going out with him, just to get his confidence up if you don't want it to go anywhere anyway.

Sweetie, it has nothing to do with the temperature. It's all about the short days and lack of sunlight. The shortest daylight days for you would be around the end of June, but the problem continues to get worse for a few months after.

There are people who spend a few hours each day in rooms with high-intensity lights to combat this, and it really works. Look into it. This might be exactly what your friend needs.
