When ever I'm at school I'm happy, but sometimes all of a sudden I Feel like crap and extremely sad and when I come home its even worse.. i also suffer from trichotillmania and weigh 200 pounds at 13.. I think those have stuff to do with it?
Sorry it took so long for you to get a response. Yes the compulsive behavior along with the weight likely have something to do with depression. If you feel like you are overwhelmed, I would recommend going to treatment. Are you already taking depression meds? Also look up symptoms of depression and see how many you have. Anyway you will find alot of support on here so please dome back and keep posting. Good luck and God bless.
Do you have a school counseler? The thing is if you are that depressed don't wait to long before you open up to somebody. If you can pull yourself out of it then it may not be time. You are at a crucial time in your life. If you are stayin depressed for a long time, like weeks at a time than it would benefit you greatly to get on some meds. In my experience depression gets worse the longer you go on without taking meds. Some of my symptoms of depression are as follows:
Decrease in concentration
Isolation (being by yourself without the desire to talk to anyone)
No motivation to even take a shower
Constant negative thoughts
No desire to clean...anything
Like I said if the depression could stem from alot of things. Your emotions are going to change alot at this time in your life but when you get the courage up talk to someone. I can't diagnose you but I will talk to you.
It will be a combination of alot of things. Therapy, meds, and follow up therapy. Of course you can wait as long as you want to get checked out but the only thing I would be worried about is alot of things can progress whether it is a mental illness or not. Be aware of your moods.
Nothing changes until the fear of change is less than the pain of staying the same.
