I will go crazy, i can't take it anymore, my brain doesn't work please somebody help me

Posted , 14 users are following.

I have been depressed for almost 2 years. I have no friends at all. I am completely alone, nobody wants to talk with me in high school and my teachers don't help me either (they rather keep their distence, because I am repellent and not talented enough so it's not worth caring about me). I obviously fell so bad, I cried almost every day in the school toilet, I just could't stop it though I knew that I had to be strong. The worst part is that I feel like my brain doesn't work. My memory is so bad, can't concentrate and solve problems. I literally did nothing in the summer holiday. I wasn't able to. I have read that certain parts of the brain like hippocampus shrink due to depression, but is it just because of depression? Because I feel like that my brain is so demaged that sometimes I can't even remember what happened the day before and I am completely unable to learn anything. I feel so miserable and hopeless. Please somebody help me I have no idea what to do.

      Anneklein, you are entitled to go to the Doctor without your parents once you reach the age of 14 (in the UK...you say High School, so thinking maybe you are from the US?) If you are form the US find out how old you need to be to go on your own. If your parents won't help you, you need to see someone who will.

      Does your school not have any facilities for mental health issues? Don't be frightened by the term mental health....its just a catch-all term for all that goes on with the brain/mind.

      Please see someone - you are too young to deal with all of this on your own. x

    Hi I am sorry to hear how bad you are feeling right now.   Have you tried asking a teacher for help?  I find it hard to believe they find you 'repellant'.   Maybe they just don't know how you are feeling?   If you have never talked to any of them then they probably assume everything is ok.   How about a school counsellor? 

    Don't forget you are seeing everything through the veil of depression which colours your judgement and makes everything a negative.   You need to ignore  these thoughts and ask for help.    I know this is very difficult so maybe you could write down how you feel and just hand it in instead?  

    Families often don't understand depression- mine don't.  They are too close to be objective.   Let us kinow how you get on please.   x

    If you see a psychologist they must be able to help you. Having depression does not shrink youre brain, it doesnt damqage it at all physically, but it can make it hard to concentrate on anything - that is true.

    If you live somewhere where you can see a doctor without too much trouble, go to your doctor as soon as possible, and talk about how you feel. 

    Youre teachers will not find you repellant - this is your depression making you paranoid, its not real. Please see a doctor and be honest about how you feel.

    Hey

    Your not alone I've been in this path for almost 10 years or more unfortunately medicine wouldnt do much, but training yourself your mind through gym helps you in many ways, you have to count the positive and negative, if you were someone else that was completely healthy maybe your life wouldn't have been the same and it lead you to become a bad person therefore you have to deal with depression first hand it's a blessing and curse from God, those who are sick it keeps them away from certain lifestyle, certain bad things

    but try seeing a naturopath doctor and maybe they can help you by giving you natural remedies or herbs, my best friend is a naturopathy doctor in Toronto and she always gives me advice and medicine to help me calm down, do not drink or smoke as it will slow you down, build yourself step by step, enjoy different classes and do things that make you happy and don't forget to see a specialist or a therapist to talk to them if you don't have someone else, I'm here you can message me anytime and I'll provide you information and advice to help you find yourself again in this wicked life - Ahmad

    Hi anneklein, I am here because I got the same issue like u do and here to tell you that you are not alone, I have been going through the same process where no one supports me for who I am, and worst of all instead they try to change me to make me like them. Now I know that you are here for yourself, and I do too. And here is the deal and how it works, everything you have been feeling is not wrong, you are being something that doesn't suit you, and that's where the depression is coming from to change you into something more resourceful, if everything u said was true. Don't try to be stiffed or rebel against ur feelings. What u need is to just get it all out, understand it and then accept it. Find what makes you anxious, depressed, angry, frustrated, go deep into those feelings, understand the reason behind those feelings, and change according with it. Maybe you don't need people to accept you, maybe you don't need ppl to like you, as long as u accept yourself. This is just an example of what a reason might be, but only you can know. The only way to find it way back to yourself is to loosen up to what you are attached for and who you think you are, because the you 4 or 5 years ago was good at it's time but for now u need to be a total different person. It's right when u want to die, when u want to end ur life and those feelings are not wrong but u need to find the meaning of those feelings. Because many times whatever ur life is and whatever u think u are is in ur mind and thats what might ur feelings say. The world u r looking at is fake. Destroy it mentally. It will take a while, but pain is not always wrong. You don't get stronger by trying to push more against ur pains, instead you just need to see that u r a better person than u think u r and actually... u don't need to push more. But instead drown deep the ocean, I know it's scary. But trust me you will find a better land that u belong to.

    before i say anything i want to remind you that depression can be a sort of veil covering your eyes. it makes everything seem rather dark and hopeless–understatement, but you know. the point is that things aren't always what they seem.

    so that being said, maybe you could try reaching out to a teacher? i know that you think they'd rather keep their distance, but maybe they just don't know what's going on. find the friendliest teacher in your school and just try to talk to them and tell them what's going on. i know it might be difficult, i know it's easier said then done–but it could help.

    also, i want you to know that you are not alone in this struggle. there are people fighting the same battle you're fighting–and everyone is in it together.

    i saw your reply to another user a while back, it's great that you're seeing someone who helps! when you feel bad, please remember that the psychologist is happy to offer their assistance and that they don't mind helping.

    i hope you'll get better soon. let us know how you're doing, okay? smile

    ps. if you believe in God, don't hesitate to call on Him. (if you don't it's okay, please don't think i'm trying to get you to believe in Him or anything. it's just that He helped me when things got really bad and i wanted to say this on the off chance that you believe in Him because He helps. i'm sorry if i say anything wrong/offensive to you) He never leaves us, even though it may feel like it at times, and He loves us–He loved us enough to die for us. simply knowing that helped me when i was stumbling in the dark, and even though i didn't know it then He was working to deliver me from all the sadness and hopelessness. He wants to do the same for you, no matter how horrible or worthless you think you are–so even if you don't think you're worthy just go to Him. His love transcends all our failures, and where our sin abounds, His grace abounds all the more. grace and peace to you in Christ. i'll pray for you smile
