  • 314 year old with a depression/low self esteem problems. Do I suffer with a certain disorder?

    Since I was little I had a big problem with communication with others. I've been known as the shy person in elementary school and even now. I was very happy as a child too, still had friends and did not care if I spent recesses alone. Once I started I started 6th grade self aware and have had major problems of guilt. This was much more to the extent that I used to hate myself for doing something even years before and I think people are laughing at him behind me. I also hated myself if I were to do something that would make me feel bad. If I were to say no to someone that I would feel guilty for absolutely no reason, as a result used to give to others of my things my classes or snacks whenever they ask for it you will not feel depressed afterwards. So far, these problems have intensified. I hate myself every time one makes a mistake, whether stuttering in a presentation or even stumble. I think people laugh and make fun of me behind my back. My problem has intensified the guilt every time he would do something that would hurt someone else the guilt will stick with me for days or weeks. Throughout all these symptoms that would give people a happy face even though I feel a bit down, so no one really knows that I have these problems. I've also had fights with my friends always give me something to someone that I have because they say it's just the bait for others "use" to me. Lately I've had trouble sleeping, frequent nightmares (sleep paralysis, to be exact), and my memory was so bad that I had to write reminders on my arm. I know you probably do not have major depression, or maybe it's normal to feel this way because of my age. What is it? (Thanks for reading this huge block of text that show my problems, I appreciate it.)

  • 7Depression...suicide?

    I used to be a really really really insecure person, but I got out of the habit of putting myself down, because I wanted to do it for me. I did what I though would help and my confidence rose and things seemed to get better. I never really believed that I could do anything, but I still manage to get accepted at one of the best high schools where I live. That's the time when I was beyond insecure and I ended up repeating my first year there. When I went back, in the same 1st form, I decided that I needed to change and I went from coming in dead last the day that I repeated to coming in 4th and that's where I stayed until I graduated in 2009 from that high school. I started in 2005. I didn't do good my first year because I felt like nobody was paying attention to me--my parents were so wrapped up in their own problems and they never paid attention. So when I went back I thought that maybe if I got good grades they would care then but nothing changed, so I was like screw them...I'm going to do this for me. One of my problems too was that I got molested when I was a little girl and nobody knows about it not even my parents. If conversations came up I was able to say that nothing ever happened to me, because I made myself believe that it didn't. Whenever I started to think about it I blocked it out--so now I don't really remember most of it--I can just say that I know it happened to me and it just makes me feel so horrible about myself. I used to be a really bubbly, happy person after I started believing in myself. I knew what I wanted to do with my life and I put my all into making my dreams more than just dreams. I'm in university now. I started straight after I graduated from high school--but now things are just going downhill in my life and I'm scared. One of my best friends was cruelly murdered in 2010 three days after she graduated from the same high school that I graduated from. When we found her body, she was so decomposed that we had to have an immediate burial and nobody was ever charged. June 19, 2011 will be one year since her burial. When she died my depression got so bad. I used to have immense faith in God and I'm mad at myself now, because I'm losing my faith in Him. I don't pray. I don't read my Bible. I don't watch or read anything that has to do with Him. I just feel like He let me down. I used to pray so much and ask Him to please just let the hurt go away, but nothing was changing so I just stopped I've missed so much classes that I have to withdraw from two of the courses that I'm in this semester. My depression just gets so bad, that I just curl up in bed and cry all day. I'm just losing interest in everything and I'm so scared, because for the first time in my life I have suicidal thoughts in mind. Instead of getting better everything is getting worst in my life. My mom has an incurable STD, because of my dad. My 7 year old niece has one because of my sister; and the molestation is bothering me now more than ever and I don't know what to do anymore. I'm just so empty inside and I don't see the point in anything anymore. I'll be turning 20 on Monday I'm not saying that I'll try to hurt myself--it's just scaring me that my depression is so bad that I actually have suicide on my mind.
