  • 8I'm Stuck In The Past And I Need Help?

    I'm experiencing a bit of a depression, because of the fact that I'm getting older. I'm having a tough time leaving behind my childhood (which was the greatest time of my life), but now I am slowly being forced to trade the life I once knew for adulthood. I've been very Preoccupied with my past lately, and i just can't seem to let it go. I miss being in third grade the most, it reminds me of a simpler time, when life was so simple and so easy. I miss waiting for the next installment of my favorite video game franchise (which was, and still is "Tony Hawk's"). I still remember when "Tony Hawk's Underground" came out, it was 2004, and I was very excited to have bought the game (a game which I still play to this day). I also miss waiting for and watching the very much anticipated "Harry Potter" movies, which I would watch as they came out. But slowly, as the years went by, to my horror, things began to change. The "Tony Hawk's" game franchise eventually ended in 2007, all of the "Harry Potter" movies finally came out, and the people that I've know have changed, moved away, or have become very successful and have me behind. I remember being ten years old, and watching "Dragon Ball" and "Dragon Ball Z" on "Toonami" every afternoon after coming home from school. Everything has changed since I turned eighteen, and now the thing I fear most is getting older. Unfortunately for me, my 19th birthday is next month on the 30th, and I am dreading it! What Can I do? How can I slow things down? Why does everything have to happen so quickly?

  • 12Did past bullying cause my depression?

    I have 15 years and have depression. I guess technically have not been diagnosed with depression (I'm not sure my doctor did not say anything), but I know I have. I took a lot of testing (I know they're not a current diagnosis or reliable) and they all said I have depression. Grave / major depression. I have also done some research and I have a lot of different types of symptoms of depression, including major, atypical manic and psychotic depression. Iv seen a therapist, but I did not like it really made me feel more depressed. So I stopped to see it plus it has a lot of other medical problems that have put things on hold for now. Anywho, in the 6th and 7th grade I was bullyed by my "best friends" (or so I thought). I had really bad acne, then (I have it yet but it is getting better LOT) and they (the three girls who were my "best friends" at the time) called me pizza face all the time and made fun of me a lot. Even he did in class and the teacher overhead, but did nothing about it. She just ignored him. And I sent these texts really mean calling me "ugly", a "*****" and "whore" (excuse my French). They told me to die and stuff. I remember them having more than once for my birthday and I closed the door of my room and went through my stuff. Middle school really sucked for me. I really I have no friends. It was never popular, they do not really care much for the filthy rich people popular. Popularity means nothing to me. I do not exactly "fit" either. It seems that whenever I have friends who are not really are my friends and stabbed me in the back. haha.Right I have a couple of different groups of friends (one of which is "lower social class" however, are the ones I trust and feel close to (:), but they are the best of friends gift . I 't have a best friends either.I have not been 6 am and tell you the story of my life I'm sorry, I have no one to talk.So is why I'm depressed thx ( :
