I typed into google - I want to die and found this website - I am so very desperate and although I am on medication and have counselling in the past lately I just realise how very alone I am and how although I have friends I just want to hide in my house and not see anyone - what the hell is wrong with me!!!

You are never alone here! I have felt these same feelings for almost 30 years! I had to try several meds before I actaully felt any better. I still "hybernate" in my house........although I do go out and mess around in the yard. But, there is nothing wrong with wanting to stay home and be alone. You do actually go out and socialize on other occasions? You do not want to die............I can relate on this issue. I appreciate the life I have now, it took almost dying to wake me up! Has somehting happened to throw you into this slump?

I'm 16 years old and know that I am suffering from depression. I'm in grade 11 now which has been terrible. Back in grade 9 and when I first started highschool I had tons of friends, a girlfriend, and I wasn't really ugly like I am now. I still have friends and hangout with them enough but I don't really have a bestfriend and can't really explain or tell anyone how I feel. Everyday I feel uncomfortable at school because I feel very insecure and feel as if nobody really likes me. I go home and pretty much do nothing and I always feel really sad. My life has gone way down hill the past year because I have lied so much and done stupid things and now barely anyone really likes me. I always feel depressed and don't want to be seen by anybody and I wish I was someone else or people would accept me and I would fit in. Can someone please give me sum advice on how they got through their teen years and some of their experiences and what they did to help??
