How Do I Move Forwards?

I am a 12 year old girl battling depression with no friends, parents or support. I don't know where I want to go with my life or even what high school I want to go to. I think about suicide regularly, just a way to gety out of this hell-hole we call life. Has anyone else been through this or can help me??

Hey, I hope you're doing ok now. I have felt this way before, and often I still do. I've been batting anxiety, depression, and an eating disorder since age- 11. I can imagine you must feel pretty lonely, sad, confused, and/or scared... If you need somebody to talk to let me know. We can e-mail or something. Once again, hope you are alright....<br />

Hang in there<br />

I have had severe anxiety/depression for a long time. Who do u live with?<br />
<br />
Not looking for sympathy, just want to tell u where mine came from. If our stories are similar I might b able to help. <br />
<br />
My parents divorced when I was 8 (phycologist said divorced parents before age 10 will greatly affect a child)<br />
<br />
My Dad and Step-Dad were mean to me <br />
<br />
My Brother was murdered when I was 10 and that pretty much broke up my family,<br />
<br />
My Mom wasn't muh of a mom so we fended for ourselves also.<br />
<br />
I went to a mental health center and was put on meds which really helped, but at ur age I would suggest excercise...did u know if u run enough u get a high? Its called runners high and is addictive (which is good). Excercise greatly helps depression. Yoga or my favorite...Pilates!
