The thought has crossed my mind that i may have depression. I just don't know whether i'm just being stupid.
The thought has crossed my mind that i may have (slight, or whatever the word is) depression. But then i realise it's just me being stupid and i don't know i want attention or something...
My friend has severe depression and i suppose i don't know whether that has impacted my thoughts... I don't actually know why because i see what it does to her. And i've seen her cuts and even tried it once and have been tempted to do it again but haven't. I get that i shouldn't and i don't and i try to just ignore my thoughts and move on...
I don't even know why i would have it anyway, there's nothing wrong, i'm fine. I just stress and stuff too much, like majorly, and this affects my concentration, sleep, thought processes, just at school i stress because i have to do the best. Then there's stuff at home and i hate talking to people because it's a waste of their time and embarrassing and everything.
I should just get over it and stop being stupid i suppose, but it's hard i ignore it but it just builds up inside me, but it's just stupid stuff which annoys me and just makes it worse. I just hate the stupid person i am...
I just don't know whether i may actually have it or something or i'm just being stupid or what's wrong with me.
Hi. Good to hear from you.
All of us have felt depressed at some point or other in our lives. Experiencing sadness or an overwhelming feeling like that can often mean we struggle to deal with even the basic functions of our daily life. That's quite normal, especially if you are someone who tends to stress a lot.
If you ever feel a strong need to cry or shout or scream, go for it! Go somewhere quiet and just let rip. Like this: AAAAAAAAAAAAARGGGHHHH. Or better yet, you could try laughing. Go on, throw your head back and laugh from your belly. HAHAHAHAHAHA
Whichever you choose, please try your hardest not to cut or harm yourself. It's important to allow yourself to express your emotions in a more healthy way and there are plenty of these ways. For example, you could also take up a group sport or something more individual, such as walking, running or cycling.
You might also like to think about talking to a professional. From the information you gave us, it sounds like you are a bit confused and a maybe a bit low on your confidence or self-esteem. Others in similar situations have said that talking to someone qualified has helped them deal with stuff more effectively in general. Someone like a psychologist, therapist or doctor will be able to help you with what you are going through.
