Possibly, because we're freshmen, just starting high school, but anyway, story;

This dude, my best friend. Lead vocals in my band is always just like acting like hes got the worst life in the world, saying it sucks and he hates himself all the time because of this girl that he dated in the beginning of the year. Now, everytime he thinks he loves a girl and she leaves him he does this.

I've been his best friend for years and seen this happen many times, sitting on MSN listening to him cry, telling him it's going to be okay (it always is..isn't it? ffs.) and stuff, I've told him I've had it.

It's been happening the whole school year since late summer, him moping around to band practice, and a day later happy as ever, until he starts thinking about this girl again.. It's made his attitude crappy too, we ask him to work on something musically wise, and hes just like I can't do it, sorry. Half the time I think it's for attention but I really don't know. I haven't talked to him for around two weeks and he talked to me today and I told him why, and he responded that he was sorry for not being good enough for anyone. I'M SO SICK OF THISS GRRR..

When will he grow up?

How do I handle this? Do I continue to be an asshole to him til he realizes he has to grow up?

i myself struggled with depression greatly during my sophomore year (last year)

and a couple of aquantances/semi-close friends have struggled to

To tell you the truth, its a total bitch. You have intense mood swings and get upset over unimportant little things, like a girlfriend dumping you. And really, pills and therapy don't help all that much.

Idk, if you wanted me to I could talk to your friend on AIM or something, cuz really theres just not much anybody can do about it, which is why its so frustrating to have it/know someone that has it.

Edit: And ya, I know everyones just gonna say he needs to grow up and that he's an emo little pussy... but really... it's a pretty complicated disorder thats not really understood all that much, and I can tell from experience that its real tough to go through, although I had to deal with bigger problems than just gfs breaking up with me... maybe he has a tough family life or something? I figure theres gotta be more than just troubles with girls.

Got MSN?

And IDK I went through it pretty bad in 8th grade, I thought I was going to get married to this girl, heh. But since then, all I've needed was Jesus and since then I've been completely subordinate and fine on my own.

i was depressed for a while...like extremely depressed and then i said **** it and realized if i'm not happy than its not worth my time...so now i'm the happiest mother f-er you'd ever meet
Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why mankind is.

don't have MSN actually...

And yea, Im sure this friend of yours figures that he'll never ever meet a girl like that again and that he's gonna die lonely and unhappy. And idk, religion works really well for some people, had an adverse effect on me. I consider myself quite spiritual though, but really, I guess its whatever works for each given person, which is cool.

I think thats kinda how it went for me.

And I'm just frustrated because he won't do the same, he won't grow up and he wants everyone to feel sorry for him and stuff. FUKK

Hey, I know what it feels like to be seriously depressed and if he isn't just trying to get attention, definitely try to help him out. Take him seriously even if he isn't truly depressed. Alot of attention deprived kids show up at school with handguns, if you get what I'm saying...

I did take him seriously, the first few times he got depressed over a relationship, it's happened so many times. Me and my bandmates are just sick of it.

he probly need to see a shrink or something.
Just tell him to stop thinking about getting some for now
Tell him that if he wants a chance with any girl he's got 2 drop that
pussy attitude. To do that he needs to start taking care of himself first then everything else will fall into place.

I'm gonna head to sleep, I could suggest him to counseling, that was a good idea ^.. I'll check it tomorrow.

That happened to our Former drummer in our Freshman year (two years ago). He just kind of grew out of it. He went to a specialist for a while and I think that helped. He's a generally happy person. I was depressed for a while also. I just didn't feel right, but i knew it would go away and I just adopted a new attitude about life and go into everyday thinking ti;s going to be a damn good day. Now it seems like I;m the happiest person in school.
