    I Just Want Help

    I'm 16 years old, from England and I want to know something. Do you think I could see a councillor or something without my parents finding out? I know you'd probably say I should talk to my parents about it but there's no way that I will. I have issues. It completely embarrasses...

    The problem is with the depression comes two

    things, 1) A desire to smoke weed and get stoned, 2) I get horny as hell and can't look at women without thinking what would be fun with them. Now number one is something that I could do quite easily but I abstain from which makes it all worse (I think I am generally too old...
