I Feel Sad a Lot.

Okay, I'm thirteen, and I always seem to be controlling how sad I really am. My mom took me to a therapist because I used to cut, but I lied to my therapist because I didn't know how to tell her therapy wasn't helping. It helped a little though since I didn't cut for a while, but I have done it twice now, and I don't know what to do about it. None of my friends are interested in what I am in, and they don't notice I am there. I am also very socially awkward so people don't seem to like me. I don't know what I should do.

  • Wtf is wrong with kids today??? Always cutting and needing therapy, you need an ass whooping and told to get on with life. The world is screwed when they get off age, jmho

  • Keep on going to your therapist, but be honest with him. They are there to help and if you don't tell them the truth, they won't be able to fully help you. 13 can certainly be tough. Your body is changing and hormones can make you very emotional. Don't cut. It's important to learn how to cope with what you're feeling without trying to escape. And cutting will just leave awful scars that will make you feel even more self conscious. Write in a journal or paint or something to help you deal with whatever is happening in your life. If none of your friends are interested in what you're in, maybe find some more friends that share your interests. Or find something that you and your current friends can do together.

  • I don't really know what to say but when I was a boy your age I felt bad a lot of the time too. Try not to worry so much and do the things that make you the happiest whenever possible. You'll grow up to be just fine.

  • Your therapist is the one you can and should confide in. Your friends are no doubt not mature yet either and more than likely have their own issues. The teen years are very tough, confusing and sometimes scary. This is perfectly normal. Are you missing a parent, or possibly let down by one? If so remember they are broken, don't let their brokenness determine your fate!
