i dont want to live anymore,but i dont want to hurt anyone by comitting suicide. i have no will power to do anything,or become anything. i break down at the smallest of things. I self harm,and gradually as time goes on it gets deeper,and in more dangerous places,Ive also started taking paracetamol,and other medicines. Ive had numerous amount of councilors,doctors etc,and they just tell me I'll grow out of it. but i know myself i cant last much longer. Ive spoken to my family, thieve tried abit but they seem to forget. i have no appetite aether. i dont know where to go next, friends are starting to get fed up of me talking about it and they think i over exaggerate.. im scared, sometimes i get really deeply depressive, ( when i self harm and overdose ) , this scares me because i feel like a different person,i have no control over. im only 14 and i dont want to be like this,but everything seems my life style now, and the harming feels addictive. i just feel like this,theirs no cause. help

Depression Answer A17619
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. I can understand the pain and agony you're going through. Your symptoms are suggestive of depression. Depression is a mental disorder characterized by a pervasive low mood, loss of interest in usual activities and diminished ability to experience pleasure.

The three most commonly indicated treatments for depression are psychotherapy, medication (antidepressants), and electroconvulsive therapy. You should talk to your family members because the support that they can provide is one of the best medicine. If the symptoms persist then please consult your psychiatrist.

You need to enhance your will power too. Truly speaking, the only person who can help you the most is you, yourself. Read some good books to motivate yourself. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
