i know if i don't get professional help soon i am going to do something drastic, and i don't want that to happen, but at the same time i don't want my family to think i'm weak for needing help.
I am so done with this f** alert fad. Some of these people are actually confessing really painful secrets and you guys are being jackasses.OP, I've totally been where you are. My family is not the kind that talk about their feelings, and I was depressed for a long time without them knowing. All I can say is that you can get help without your family knowing, like free counselling and stuff. I hope, I really do, that you get better.
I'm a 14 year old girl and trust me I've had hard times. I was depressed 1 year ago and turned to cutting. I was mad at myself for doing it so I would do it again. I couldn't tell anyone cause I was embarassed about it. One day I read something about people who comitted suicide and i stop cause it hurt all the people who that suicide person cared for. You shouldn't be afraid to talk about it. I don't cry cause i dont want people to see weakness in me so I just kept it in. That's what started it. I haven't changed much, I don't cry or talk to personally about my stuff but I have friends I can talk to now. So long story short, talk to someone before something happens.
