Feeling depressed with no one for support, please help?
Question by Mich: Feeling depressed with no one for support, please help?
I’m not really good at explaining situations like this, so I hope you can understand what I’m trying to say here…
I’m asking for some advice because for awhile now, I’ve been seeing black and white. I am 16 years old and I’m lonely. Everyday is like a struggle to get through because I’m always ignored and yelled at. My grades are plummeting down the drain because I’m always too saddened to do anything. I have a learning disability that stops me from picking up new things in class and I’m always at a loss with my assignments.
My family life is horrible too.
My parents always put me down and yell at me over the stupidest things. They yell at me *at least* three times a week. I’m getting the impression that I’m a failure because my older brothers (who are both 26, twins) are more successful than I am when they were in school. My mother calls me fat a lot which doesn’t help my low self-esteem problems. She thinks I’m unintelligent and useless.
Maybe because I am, but I don’t want to be. I want to be different, I want to feel smart for once, I want to feel like I’m on top of the world, but it’s out of my reach.
My parents never praised me for my achievements and only degrade me. If I make ONE mistake (such as forgetting to do a chore, or not finishing an assignment) they flip their shit at me. And when I DO achieve something positive, they only say that I could’ve done better.
What’s the point in trying anymore if people only recognize me for what I DIDN’T achieve?
Don’t bother saying stuff like “you need to talk to your parents” or anything remotely close to that, I’VE TRIED. SO MANY TIMES. You know what they do? They think it’s all in my head. They think my depression is a joke and backhand it away. I’m so tired of being neglected and feeling like an utter failure.
I want to kill myself; so badly that I’m starting to cut myself.
And I swore to myself that I would never do such a thing, but this situation has gotten to the point where I have to draw blood in order to FEEL something. I’m an empty shell now. And I’m lost.
Please, PLEASE, if you’re reading this, please help me.
I know there are other people out there that probably experience worse things than I do, but I need help. I’m sick and tired of always having my problems ignored.
