Believe it or not, depression and misery are two different things. In depression, certain symptoms last over two weeks. Misery can be a temporary spurt of depression that lasts maybe a day or two. Take this test to see if you are just miserable or are actually depressed.

So is it depression, or misery? You are definitely depressed. Friends alone aren't going to be able to help. It's time to get your parents involved. I know it's going to be hard to tell them, but if you do, the pain will end faster. You need professional help, and I mean this in the most positive way. Depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain and NOT a character failing. Do not let anyone tell you differently.
(Sounds about right)

No problem! Like I said, if it makes even one person feel even a little better then I have done my job. I honestly have a little depression story of my own: I was going through this period of time where I would get in trouble and then just cry. I hated myself and my life and sometimes thought that people were better off without me. It did get better though and what helped was talking to my friends. Telling my friends that I was feeling this way and they were just so kind. I am not saying everyone's story will be like this but I am trying to say that you ARE NOT alone!!! I cannot even begin to imagine what all of you are going through. I know that one kind comment wont change the world, but I do know that it can make someone happier. I

So i think I’m depressed. I have suicidal thoughts at least once a week and self harm though I try not to because my parents are very vigilant and would notice. That’s why most of my cuts are on my legs. I have a friend who is like me but their cutting is more often than mine and I’ve had to talk them out of suicide. They are the only person I can talk to but I’m still feeling the same. We supply each other with ring pulls from soda cans so we can cut. I really want to tell somebody how I’m feeling but I’m to scared and I don’t know what to say. So if anyone has any advice on how to tell some one I’d really appreciate it
Thanks you x

I know so many people who see this will think its stupid and maybe it is. But if this makes even one person happy, then I will have done my job. Every person was created unique and beautiful. We are all masterpieces and you make someone else's day better just by existing. We all have hard times but what matters is how we deal with them. Will we let them break us? or will we prove that we are stronger and walk out of the pain with our heads held high? We are all here for a reason never ever forget that. If you don't right now, someday you will have someone who understands you and loves you for just being you. Stay strong!!!

Only thirteen. Attempted suicide twice in a week,(soon to be thrice and probably the end of me for good). I can't deal with anything anymore.

@sadness oh nice i found a person my age and has a simillar story to mine 0_0 i even have a the🌻 and my mom caught me about 2 times now talking to the the🌻, shes my bigger sister's friend and how i met her is one day i was crying my self to sleep after having my daily dose of thinking about how worthless and useless i am then my brain suddenly said "Hey lets ask my bigger sister, she knows about panik attacks and mental stuff" i was like "No" my brain said "JUST, DO IT" im glad i did and my sister asked why im crying when i came into her room, i told her i had been depressed for like 2 or 3 years now and she then said ill make u meet someone soon enough (thats after a long conversation with her) a few days later she called me upstairs when i was talking to mom about.. i dont really remember but anyways i made up an excuse saying "Oh yeah i told (my bigger sisters name) that we will draw a few days later maybe have some fun or play games upstairs" and boy did i trick her.. i was talking to her for 3 hours and it felt like a 30 pound mental weight has been lifted off my bacc, i told her (the the🌻) when my bigger sister said the phone will run out of battery that we might meet a few times a month, anyways back to now (that was nearly a year ago) im feeling better and everything, im still having suicidal thoughts but i never tried to commit it bc i felt too scared about dying although thats the point of suicide..

And @my life is 💑, maybe say to your parents that you've been feeling really sad recently for a long time and you don't know what to do? Idk that's probably what I would say. Hope that helped lol :)
