    Default Possibly Depressed?



    i have a friend in need, if anyone can help her please.



    her words:



    First of all, I apologize for the confusing this may sound. I'm not very articulate (at least my grammar is fine?), and I'm not sure how to word this. My question is primarily whether I could be classified as "depressed," or if it's something else.



    ...



    I've been feeling this way for a couple years (I'm 16 now), and I'm not sure if it would be classified as depression or manic depression, if anything.



    Basically, I have good days where life is as good as it's going to get, and other days (they seem to occur more commonly recently) where I just feel horrible and would like to commit suicide (though I never would; don't worry about that Razz). I would call it "depression" if I just felt overwhelmingly sad, but I just kind of just feel like there's no point in living. Whatever I do doesn't matter in the end, and it just all seems like a great waste. I believe this contributes to me not having much emotion (which my friends say).



    While I am not sure of the causes, I would say it's probably due to a number of things, primarily due to being an agnostic (no, not athiest, agnostic) and therefore in my eyes not having a reason to exist. I could go on and list them all, but I don't want you guys to have to read a book, so I won't. Smile



    Thanks a lot for your time in at least reading this; hopefully you will respond, and I look forward to reading those posts.

    If your emotionally detached it would maybe indicate that you've had something/s in your life that were too emotional for you, maybe the loss of a loved one for example. My advice would be to allow yourself to feel again without your automatic reaction of blocking the emotion. How do you do that???? Well, I haven't come up with that yet, sorry, but you could try something to get you on your way perhaps.



    Get a pen and paper, write down 2 things that have happened in the past that have been "big emotional events" and then begin to write about them. If you feel like crying, CRY, it's good for you and it will help you heal. If you hold it all in then you can't heal your heart. Write anything and everything about how you felt when and after it happened, the people involved and the outcome of how you feel about it now.



    I hope that helps you reveal the beautiful person that you hide inside of you.

    If it doesn't help, please let me know if you wouldn't mind.
