Are You OK, Mentally? (Quiz for Teens)
10 Questions - Developed by: - Developed on: - 936 taken - 6 people like it
Have you been feeling down lately? Take this quiz and find out whether you’re OK, or not so good. DISCLAIMER: I’m not a professional. I’m 14 years old and have been through a lot, and I just want to let people know that they are not alone.:)
But anyways, is it normal if you have depression to be able to feel genuinely happy? I don’t always feel sad and depressed. Sometimes I feel happy and satisfied with life, mostly when I’m sitting home alone watching TV, but still. Sometimes, I just feel completely emotionless. Completely numb. I don’t actually think depression has made me more emotional, it has made me not care. I just can’t care about anything anymore.
Also, I think I need to see a psychologist or something, but idk how. I haven’t told anyone I have depression, and I’m really scared to tell my parents. I’m afraid that they’ll just tell me I’m being dramatic and to stop only thinking about myself.
What do I do?
i just entered year 10 n the stress overload is.. well its not bad for other people but it is for me coz i panic very easily n stuff n tend to procrastinate alot n its just not great for me at the moment. n with parents that expect u to have good grades.. its hella tough tbh. i dont feel like i can talk to any of my friends abt stuff either, idk i dont think they would understand yk. also found out that i show signs of severe depression 😀 no one believes me tho so uh anyways they all think im joking or something. also nowadays i compare myself to ppl alot like ‘🐬 shes pretty why cant i be like that’ n i look into a mirror n wanna smash it i have cried several times at a photo of me or at my reflection idk i just hate how i look so much :/ but guys ive been clean for like 2 months now! hope i dont relapse, im tryin so hard fr but like no one acknowledges how hard i try.. idk bro i feel like such an outcast n i just get treated diff n i have no clue why i feel like theres something wrong w me or something idk shiz hard..

1. Draw a butterfly on your arm or hand, with a marker or a pen.
2. Name the butterfly after a loved one.
3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally.
4. If you cut yourself before the butterfly is gone, you've killed it. And if you don't cut yourself it lives.
5. If you have more then 1 butterfly, cutting yourself kills all of them.
6. Another person may draw the butterfly(s) on you. These butterfly(s)are extra special! Take good care of them.
7. Even if you don't cut yourself. Feel free to draw the butterfly(s) anyways, to show your support.
This is just a recommendation. You don't need to do this, there are lots of ways other ways to cope with self harm.
@D!3(sorry, I can’t say the whole word lol): Hey, is there anything I can do to help you? I understand what you’re going thru, and that’s HARD. *Me casually crying while writing this* I agree with you, you and your siblings SHOULDN’T be going thru all that! It’s unfair! You’re mom shouldn’t be treating you like that! That’s wrong! There are people on here like @Chia who WANT to help you! You can do it, I believe in you!
Eilidh: I feel you there 😰
@imtired: The best thing you can do is tell a trusted adult about the things your feeling(I’m no adult lol) Maybe a principal at school, maybe your parents??? Maybe??? This is a suggestion, I really hope it works tho!
@Idon’tknowhowtolive: I suggest do the same thing I told @imtired I hope it makes you feel a bit better! :D
@Amber: Tons of people feel the same way! We’re with you in this, all of us!
@LetMeD!E: Same thing I told the other too. I really hope this suggestion works for you :)
@Dylan CivilianXD i relate to this so much! sometimes its so insanely hard to just smile for real ngl things can get so exhausting that u cant even bring urself to smile i get it :/ i rlly wish that agonising pain could end too its so go💑 tiring i understand youuu. im so sorry that times have been tough for u n i srsly hope things r getting better for u slowly but surely x
@Die i just read ur story and omfg i feel so freaking bad for u! that honestly sounds so so so horrible and im so sorry that u go through that 💑, no one deserves to be treated like this :/ growing up with strict parents, i totally understand the grades thing n the mistreatment from parents like getting the sht beaten out of u ik how that feels n i completely understand that it can be so so hard 😭 anyways u must have an insanely big heart to stop ur siblings from getting hit bcuz they r too young, thats so kinda of u 🥺 but that doesnt mean u should get hit instead that is so sad n unfair 💑 honestly 😔 society these days i tell u, its messed up. its ridiculous what people can go through, n so devastating n shocking, i feel SO bad. i know things can be rllllyyyy hard, but please, try to keep pushing through i know u got this! i understand how u feel, i honestly want it to end too quite often, but please, try to keep going forward, and never forget that your grades does not define who u are as a person, ive personally come to realise that myself! Please dont give up YOU GOT THISSSSSS
@imtired same dude i relate to this so much coming from a person who grew up in an asian household, growing up i never really had the freedom to express my feelings bcuz no one would take me seriously n now im more mature n still have no one to talk to not even my parents my friends dont listen much either so i find myself suffering alone mist of the time :/ it can be so hard to talk to people i get it dw n yes i fake a smile ALOT n it’s extremely unfair towards some of us that we cannot express how we feel :/ im so sorry u feel this way, i rlly hope things get better soon!! btw u guys feel free to come back n vent here, i will try my best to read these comments and reply as often as i can just hang in there
Goodbye everyone, hope ya'll have a good day.
