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

  • The teen years have always sucked, but this modern crop is convinced that
    1) they are the first and only generation to ever realize this and
    2) crying for attention online and cutting are the only ways to deal with it.

    All narcissism all the time, baby

  • Forthe record, this was told by me almost 4 years ago, and I am usually absolutely silent in all my struggles in real life and online. I still struggle everyday with my mental illness, but this complaining you are talking about is only me trying to get some stuff off my chest not to be criticized once again. I am sorry that you took this the wrong way and I apologize for being such a typical teen. I am also sorry I complained about my addiction online. You don't need to reply. I understand what you are saying. I hope you have a good day, and that you are happy. πŸ˜Šβ˜ΊπŸ˜„

  • Put ur crap out on the internet for the world to see,, u dont get to choose the kind of feedback you get, sorry u didnt get the validation u needed so bad :)

  • I am sorry I am like this. Hope you have a nice day. 😊

  • If you were -genuinely- sorry, you'd stop posting pathetic "look at poor little me, I'm so tragic" confessions (and stalking a 4 year old post!) to leave passive-aggressive responses to sane (if slightly illiterate) people. Everyone besides you can see that you are more attention-starved than "sorry." Btw, the smiley face stuff nicely highlights your already obvious immaturity.

    Now come back with something designed to make you sound Put Upon But Brave which is really the nonstop, self-centered blather of a deeply insecure child. Remember the smiley face!

    Or try growing up. Your choice.

  • 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!
