Hi everyone,
I am coming to the realization that I am simply a burden to everyone around me. I have been suffering with depression and suicidal thoughts for a while, and I think that I would want to try to get help. But I have no one to turn to. There is no one to trust, no one to confide in.
I am not going to bother anyone with all of the details, which don't really matter anyway.
Could anyone please help me find a solution on how to get help?
Thank you.

I'm sorry you're depressed and if you've been suffering, it would be time to get help. How old are you - we get many young people posting here, so we need to know if you can seek help as an adult or you're a minor.

If you're an adult, you should start with your family doctor because there's physical disorders which can cause depression. Get a complete physical including blood tests. You can describe how you're feeling and your doctor will recommend the appropriate help.

You can also join the forum section by clicking on Community. There's a lot of support there, but it doesn't take the place of therapy of course. I hope you'll reach out and get help, so you can start feeling better.

Yeah, I am a minor. I'm 13.

Since you're a minor the only choice is to tell your parents, so they can take you to the doctor or speak with a school counselor. You could ask your school if this would be confidential and if you need your parents consent.

I am a 25 year old man and I too had suffered severe depression as a teenager. It was very hard and I often got suicidal thoughts. I had to fight long and hard and eventually what got me out were my hobbies, good books, keeping busy, God's and parents' blessings and a meditation technique called Vipassana which made me realise that no matter what the difficulty, it is bound to pass away sooner than later.

My best wishes are with you!

Hi, this is not necessary an answer but a comment. I'm a christian and God sometimes talks to me (really-not a werid voice). Anyway, a year + ago God revealed some information about a co-worker (which was right on, and no I'm not psychic) and I made a comment about it. Since then I've been under investigation because they think I hacked into a system somewhere, someone told me that they were approached by the FBI in my case. My life has been hell, phone bugged, followed, etc. I went to see a Doctor and he says I have servere depression, I received a prescription for Xanax for sleep but I only get 2+ hours of sleep a night. Lately I've been drinking alochol with it just to get 3-4 hours of sleep. And God seems distanct. My life is HELL. I've talked to my daughter about this a number of times and it's gotten to the point that she doesn't want much to do with me, guess I've pushed her away. I'm starting to cry just to cry. I don't know what to do, I made an appointment to see a psychristic but we'll see. I guess I just wanted someone to share with to say you're not alone. God is real and he loves us, I just don't know why he wanted me to share that information when he knew this would happen. I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel, just darkness, no hope. And my daughter is stressed and is slowly moving away from me (she lives with me). And her mother (divorced) wants me to spend the night in a hotel just to give my daughter some time away from me. I don't have a support system, I feel alone with no one to give me a hand or talk to. Honestly, I just want to go home to God. I'm alone. I feel numb. What am i doing wrong.
