Im not sure if I should take antidepressants
Im a teen girl in an controlling, manipulative and abusive relationship which no one knows about. My parents have also recently split up and I am finding it really hard to cope. I break down alot when I am out of sight and an finding it very difficult to be positive. I often dream about a better life and then when I wake up I have nothing to motivate me to get out of bed in the morning.
I didn't just wanr to start taking antidepressants without any form of advice so I was hoping someone could hekp me

You should make an appointment with a psychiatrist. Find a local shelter or women's group online they can find you a free one. I'm here if you want to talk

I was in a relationship that was a lot like the one you are in. It lasted 6 years. The only good thing from it was my son being born. I tried antidepressants and they would work for a time but then all of a sudden they wouldn't. Listen to LonelyLove. You need to get the hell out of the relationship and fast before you end up as another statistic.

I've returned as I still am unhappy with life
I am now completely free from my previous relationship but still carry the secret
Family life isn't great
New relationships have failed
I have lost all friends and am so lonely
At night I sometimes have suicidal thoughts
I'm just scared about doing this alone
Anyone got any advice on what to do?
