I Think I'm Depressed

    I've been feeling really messed up the last few

    days (more than usual). I decided to write down how I feel and it sounds like a suicide note. I'm not sure what I want to do about it.. save it? burn it? I don't know. All I know is I'm scared and alone and don't know how to tell anyone.

    I think I started becoming depressed around the age of 8 or 9 maybe. I don't know if you could even call it 'depressed' at such a young age. I just started getting periods of feeling completely hopeless. I'm 15 now and I still do. I starting asking myself what's the point? No...

    and I think I'm depressed. I'm a little ashamed to admit it as I have a very good life compared to other people and I have no reason to be depressed. I'm in a loving relationship, I have an understanding stepdad, etc. The problem is, I'm stressed with school. I get awful...

    I feel like crying but I can't bring myself to it. It's not being sad and morbid I feel, it's just the hopelessness of humanity and how I'm repeating the same life the majority of people do. Birth, work, die. Makes me feel pointless. When I try open up to people I just get...

    I can't do this anymore.

    I can't just keep acting like I'm OK. I'm not ok. I think about suicide every minute of every day. I wonder why people don't care anymore. I know I push them away. but I can't keep putting this fake smile on when I'm crying inside.
