Hi. I am a teenage girl, sixteen to be exact. I'm trying to figure out why I am feeling so awful and I hoped you could help me.
?First of all, nothing's really up in my social life right now. It's just normal, many of my friends are already celebrating their holiday with their parents, but that doesn't mean I couldn't do anything with the ones that are still here.
?Okay, second of all, the way I've been feeling for the past week isn't new to me. It started in December 2015 and it wasn't until April/May 2016 that I started feeling better again. I figured I had just been overreacting and selfpitying for no good reason.
?But now it's back. I don't know why and I don't like it. It's this feeling that makes me want to sit on the couch and lie in my bed all day. I feel tired, bored, like all my energy is drained from my body. I'm withdrawing myself from other people, especially my friends. Telling them I'm sick. Yeah right...
?Meanwhile, my thoughts are rushing. It's almost feels like it's unreal, that I am not the person thinking that, but I am. I feel a bit empty on the inside, like there is nothing there anymore.
?There is still a big part of me that thinks I'm just doing this to myself. That I'm just whining and overreacting and should man up. But I've always been self critical so I don't really know what to do with my judgement anymore. And therefore I figured maybe you guys could help me.
