Hi everyone, I am a 16 year old girl who is curious about depression.. I attend a very competitive school so my parents are constantly nagging me about grades. I am defiantly not the smartest kid at my school and I struggle with my grades. I get very emotional when my parents or friends bring up my grades. Most people at my school are aware that I am not very smart and often get looked down upon because of it. I am convinced it is a memory issue because I cant seem to ever remember material I have learned in the past like everyone else. I suffer from bad acne, (compared to my friends) do not come from family of wealth, socially awkward (occasional stutter) and dont have my drivers license.. the list goes on. I have really bad anxiety which sometimes causes me to get sick (vomit). I am not sure if I am just an emotional person or depressed- I cry constantly even over the littlest things. I know I should be very grateful for what I have but I can never seem to look at it that way. I sometimes loose focus and zone out over suicidal thoughts. I dont find the point in hurting myself but have tried it before. I sometimes wonder if it worth living because of the struggles I face (I know dramatic). Is my stutter, bad memory, vomiting and depression a brain issue? Am I just an emotional person or should seek help?
I know I went into great detail but I want to find a solution to this problem. Thanks so much!
