    I cant remember the last time I felt happy

    about anything at all, whenever I meet people, even my friends I just have to pretend to be ok. My mum knows I have a problem and that I need to talk to someone, but who is it gonna be and above all, what do we even talk about?

    I get these few hours each day,

    where I'm really depressed. Other times I'm just sad or maybe slightly happy. I really don't know why. Nothing happened. I just think of every single thing in a negative way, even if I know everything is good, kinda. I don't know what to do
