Apathetic af help?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was just wandering whether what I feel is alright, also I'm 16 so is it just like a part of growing up?

Basically for the past 3 years or more I've been slowly losing emotions.

It started off with severe sadness until I wanted to commit suicide a year later and then I just started feeling less and less until I stopped feeling really. On a day to day basis I just go through my life doing whatever I have to but I feel no satisfaction or happiness or sadness for that matter, I don't feel alive at all. I've been faking emotions to blend in with people, and I just believe that there is ultimately no purpose to my existence.

My grades are getting worse but I just don't care(I want to care, and I know it's wrong but I can't help it) and so I just sleep when I'm not at school. I've also started being really problematic at home but I don't know how to stop, my parents don't know what to do and I can't bring myself to care, they try to guilt trip me and try to get an emotional response out of me but I just feel so distant. I don't know, I just want to start feeling or I want life to end. Am I depressed? What is this??

any responses appreciated smile

      Sorry for the slow reply. I'm in the UK, sorry to hear about the meds and depression.I'm glad you're feeling better though. Im a computer person, I spend most of my time either playing games or going to parties. I'm a girl, names Tyllie . And its a real shame that you had to give up weight training that sounds annoying. Hope your boots arrive xD

    Ok first of all I am not going to call you nobody really as that is not accurate I bet you rock and you just cant see that from inside!!! I went through a lot of emotions when I was a teen there are some normal emotions, pear pressure and the usual school of hard knox !! However thoughts of suicide is not cool I have been there died twice and was revived twice I have physical reminders daily! Not showing emotions isnt that bad however feeling depressed "as some of the things you describe could fall into that" should be checked out. Why dont you sit down with your mum and dad and talk abiout how you feel ask for help! ask to go a doc who understands it better ! Get the help you deserve buddy and let us know how things went smile

      Hi somebody really, have a chat with your doctor about some cognitive behavior therapy, don't go down the antidepressents route until you have read all the side effects of these drugs, try to go for natural stuff first if you feel you need to take something,  5htp would be something to try from holland and Barrett. Read up on anne Blake Tracey if you want to know the dangers of antidepressents there are lots of facebook sites with valuable information. It's a minefield.

      I don't think you should be giving advice like this.   She needs professional help and needs to do whatever the doctor thinks is best for her.   If this includes ad's then you shouldn't be trying to put her off them.

      I never said not to take antidepressents did I? I said to read up on them first, I've been on antidepressents for years and I wish now that I had the information on the internet when I was younger. Plus she is only sixteen, very young to be taking black box warning drugs that as a named side effect can and have caused suicide, go onto the facebook site" cymbalta hurts worse" and post the question " should my 16 year old old daughter take prescribed antidepressents " ok , they're are thousands of people on that site with far greater knowledge on anti depressants than most doctors, anne Blake Tracy Altho im not her biggest fan has written a book on Prozac ( prozac, pandora or panacea, our serotonin nightmare) then the website venaflaxine should be illegal and then lots of others about these drugs. Thanks . Del. ( currently dealing with duloxatin withdrawal because of extreme fatigue setting in after one years use).

    Hi you need to seek help asap.  Isn't there a school counsellor you could go to?  If not go and visit your doctor - at 16 you are legally an adult and it will remain confidential.   It would be best if you could tell your parents though or if not another family member? 

    I went through very similiar at your age but it was never picked up nor did I seek help.   I wish I had as I would have avoided many problems in later life. 

    Please seek help now.  x
