    Hey. I wanted to talk about how my depression

    has worsened. I've been depressed for a year now, starting mildly before sinking lower and lower until I have a scar on my arm, small but still there. Then I improved, before about one or two months ago sinking again, until I am where I am now, at an all-time low. I've been...

    I don't want to be depressed any more.

    I go through waves of joy and sorrow and I hate it. My mom had cancer. My sister was in a mental hospital. My dad works but doesn't make much. I am struggling with my faith. My parents always have money arguments. And I know my life isn't that bad but I hate being depressed.

    Constantly hating happy people

    who seem to have a wonderful life. Wishing you had the chance to live yours somewhere else, feeling sad that your not happy. Just feeling empty, not crying. Not have a purpose. What's the point of even trying

    I miss being happy, I miss having a nice family,

    I miss not having anxiety, or being this way. I miss being young. But now.. I'm just a body that's taking up space, using too much oxygen that could used for a person who actually needs it.

    When is it time for me to die?

    I don't think I can take this anymore. If I'm ever happy, the happiness gets destroyed by my depression... What's the point?

    The worst thing about being a depressed

    teenager is that nobody takes you seriously. I've never actually talked to anyone about the frequent suicidal thoughts and all the crying and self-hatred. But if you so much as nod towards the fact that you have a problem and want someone to listen to you, everyone just assumes...

    Things start to get a little better.

    But then they just spiral down again. I wish I could create my own world. Where I could live in peace. I don't want to do this anymore.
