    We Don't Need Pills...

    I'm 16 now. I battle with depression, but believe me - it's not just a typical teenage depression. It all started when I was 7 and joined school. I was expecting it to be interesting, challenging, and fun. But it wasn't. My classmates started to talk, laugh, make friends...

    . When I was younger than 6, my dad would kick my mom and I out of the house and let us back in and kick us out again all the time, when I was taken away from my parents, when my aunt Was the only family member who wanted to take me in, when she thought it would save her marriage...

    Why can't I give up? Why do I have to go on?

    Why do I have to live? Laying here. Why can't I just die? Go away, but no matter where I am, I'm trapped. I'm trapped in a world without limits. Where I was never meant to be. Why do I fight? Why do I have to live? Why can't I just lay here and die? I don't want to be trapped...

    I am starting therapy again on Thursday.

    I am really nervous to relive all the bad stuff again. And I am seeing a psychiatrist the same day, I don't know what to expect with that one 😕 the idea of trying meds again kinda freaks me out.

    sort of depression or anxiety. I can't describe it. It comes and it goes. It's not really predictable. If anyone ever wants someone to talk to, I can definitely relate about this:)

    Most people who don't have anxiety

    or depression don't get it. They don't understand what you mean when you say you cry for no reason. They think you're just emotional. They don't know how it feels to have your heart pumping out of your chest and to be short of breath and can't control it. Or to feel like the...

    I feel I'm going round in circles.

    I have no one to talk to who understands. I wake up, look after kids, go to work, come home, bath kids, feed kids, put kids to bed, study and then do it all over again. My depression is making me think I'm not doing enough and I feel like I'm stuck.
