Hey guys,I'm usually not the kinda person that would feel depressed. But the last few weeks have been just so overwhelming to me. I'm in high school and my grades are dropping, partly cause I started to go out with this really great girl, and obviously I spend a lot more time with her than doing homework; we have so much fun together so i thought lower grades are worth it. After all you don't get to experience high school again. And i still have an above A average. I just quit football this year cause of injuries, and i loved that sport alot, so that got me pretty sad, then last week my gf and i got into several arguments and even though we fixed it, we both hurt each other alot during the time, then this week for no reason at all i started to feel really really depressed. And there's absolutely no reason to be depressed, my gf and I are back togther, and I'm fixing to play soccer, but every time i smile, deep down i would feel so empty and helples, I feel like something horrible is happening all the time. I really need some adivce, so please tell me something honest or don't tell me anything at all.
Feeling sad and don't know why
Trust me, the bad feelings won't last. There are no great word of wisdom I can provide beyond that. It is true though, it's part of growing up
i know exactly how you feel. a lot of people find it hard to understand why people who dont have any reason are depressed, sometimes we ourselves even get annoyed by it. wait a bit and see if the feeling goes away. i have been depressed on and off for 2 years now, im 16, and recently has been much worse, especially as before that i was feeling so much better and happier. i cant really give any advice as such, i find it really hard to deal with myself and often spend hours hating myself for the patheticness. however, if this feeling doesnt go away - or gets worse, my advice is to tell someone. it helps if other people know. then maybe if you need to later, if the feeling doesnt go away, you should try going to a doctor. depression can sometimes occur with no reason, it doesnt mean that its not real.
last year i got into the same kind of situation as you..,. i had just quit soccer which was the love of my life.. i didnt have enough time with school and all. right before that time i had changed schools, and my boyfriend and i had broken up. i felt the same feelings you described and spent most of the year and summer in my room on my computer by myself. but once a new school year started, i met an amazing guy(we've now been seeing eachother for almost 8 months) and i started soccer again and my friends were awesome. i know how you feel and it sucks... but unless its actually depression it'll go away in time. just try to get out of the house alot and be around people that make you feel good about yourself and support your school work and stuff like that.
