I'm depressed and want to kill myself, and the other night I almost overdosed but stopped myself after taking two tablets. I'm a 14 year old gay teen, and the other day I was with my boyfriend but I still felt depressed. However I do not know why. Despite this because I was depressed we never did anything and now I'm depressed about that and I think that he doesn't love me because lately I've been depressed and haven't been myself around him. I just wanted to know if you knew of any ways to help me out of my depression, so I could be better and do things with my boyfriend. All I want is to be happy so please help me. Thanks.
