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.

I feel depressed. Everything checks out. I have depression.

I do think of suicide, but...its passive...all I want to do is go to sleep and not wake up. Jumping or slitting my wrists scares me. I just want to die in peace.

Is that normal?

Im bi
I'm 14
I'm black

I hate when dumb people get mad at me for who i am and who i want to be because they dont like it. and tbh im not afraid of God im not afraid of death or Satan👺. Also y is Satan the supposed 'bad guy'? maybe he just didnt want to follow all the rules that God was forcing him to. Yea but everybody knows who u r tho,they know whats best for u by forcing u to do things that THEY 💗 want🤬. Then when u dont want to follw or listen they hate u. Well I hate them back and would kill every single one of them in a heartbeat with absolutely no remorse. Well that's me, how bout u guys😐👌🏼😶😶

im 14 and i have absolutely no idea where my life is going. cutting isn't deep enough, my room window isn't high enough and i don't know what to do. tbh life just isn't worth it any more. I often ask God while I'm crying to just end all of it.I feel ashamed of who i am because i can never live up to others wishes. when i turn 18 is ant to go to the ARMY, I tell myself its because I want to serve, but deep iside the empty, bottomless hole that is my soul I know that its nothing but a suicide mission. "NOBODY EVER GIVES A 💗 TILL YOURE DEAD -💗TENTACION" 😔🤫

It is what it is, I guess - it'll get better, though, and this isn't a professional diagnosis so get one if you can. If your parents refuse to accept/believe what you're going through, they're probably toxic; tell someone else that can help you. Just talking to someone could help you, and it might help the other person too, with their own stuff.
Don't let anyone invalidate what you're feeling.

I am 12 and am emotionally abused by my mom. I am at my dads house right now and it is a very welcome break from her but i feel worse then i did ove rthere. I have more of an urge to hurt myself and i cry and have breakdowns way more often. I still dont know if im depressed because i can be happy a lot when im with friends and family but when im alone i break down and cry. I dont know what i did to deserve this life. My dad forced me to tell him a few days ago that i want to cut again and i could see his heart breaking it his eyes and his shaky voice. I made him a promise that i would tell him or my stepmom before i did. it was the hardest thing i have ever done. I hope no ones pain gets to the level mine is at.

Here we go again...
I'm still confused about me feelings.
It started, when I was 11,now I'm almost 16.
I wish, I could help ur all, but I can't even help myself.
I cut my arms in different times, now I have ugly battle scares, if ur wanna now, I don't think so, but I wanna say something about that:


Please stop hurting urselfs, it will make the things more complected, I now, it feels so good, but it's terrible.

I've always felt like I never wanted to live and be in this world. it's not like I can tell my parents, they never trust me.i've tried to tell my mom but all she ever said was that I was just miserable. In school, (I'm 12 y/o) if I'm late on an assignment or got a lower grade than 85 my dad verbally bullies me. saying that I should know better or I just needed to do my work better. I'm also hating my dad cause he physically abuses my sister. and then when my mom calls him off, he just says it was nothing. I have a friend whos gone through the same things as me and is getting help. she helps me. I can never trust any adult. Never. and to make it all worse, my ex bullied and harassed me cause I was bi. After him, I noticed it was pretty clear I was gay. Now I'm proud of who I am but I still wonder why i'm in this world.

I am a depressed.
I can’t tell my parents.
Here’s why.
When I was in kindergarden I was often psyciclly hurt by a classmate many times. Nobody helped. It went on until the end of 3rd grade when he left my school. I also was in 1st grade or kindergarden when I was hurt by a 3rd grader. She pushed me off the slide. It was about 4 ft off the ground but I was young- and terrifyed. She said she hated me and in she chased me and pulled my hair many times. I was at after school care. I shouted out to the teacher many times- but if she heard me, she never looked my way or helped. I suppose that’s why I don’t trust adults.To help my cause, anything will set my dad off. One time I lost a piece of a snap circuits set and he started sceraming. He went into my room to check if it was in my closet but because I am not very organized, he screamed at me for having a messy room. After a long rant with me in a corner saying nothing, he began asking what was the point of me and why I lived. He apolgized about an hour later. I am afraid of my dad, and I have been for as long as I can remember. He has never escalated into to that before. He almost always apologizes after he cools down but why should he have to cool down when I did nothing wrong? I have always accepted his apologie and somtimes he even buys me and my brother candy but whats the point anymore?
Other than that there are many cases where I have been called names and been hurt pysiclly by other kids.

I am crying while typing these memories.

I have never cut my self, though I want to.
I could never commit sueside though,
I am afraid of death. At the moment I hate my life. Though I will never end it.
I am 10. My dream is to be an author. I belive that this is just a chapter. I will never stop reading these pages that are my life.
You should belive that too.

Please don't kill yourself. Depression is a disease and is not your fault. If you need help, find a counselor or call the national suicide hotline. PLEASE. You are an amazing person and the world would be a worse place without you.

20 out of 20 questions right, should I continue living? I dont want to, so why should I? There is no point in life. Your birthed into this horrible world then you play with imaginary toys and play dress up, then you start school and learn 💗. You start dating and then break up with multiple people. Then you graduate and get a job. Then you get married, have kids and then your kids have kids and you spoil them all the time. Then you die with your lover if you make it. YOU ALWAYS DIE IN THE END.
