Am I Stressed Or Depressed

I have sudden mood swings and I simply can't focus in high school. I self harm and have suicidal thoughts. I feel like I can't talk to my mum or step-dad definitely not my dad! I don't want them to know. I worry easily and I ALWAYS feel soooo tensed up!

I honestly, believe it is very very important that you tell an adult how your feeling! If something has caused you to be uncomfortable or even afraid to tell your parents, and you have no other family you can talk to, then please speak to your school counsellor or family doctor!

Young girls commonly experience mood swings, and extreme emotions because of the changing hormones, so please be brave and tell someone what is going on with you, so you can get the right help you need!

The tension and stress felt in high school are real, and as serious of issues as any other time in life.  If the adults you would ordinarily talk to about things would tend to pooh pooh it as just a stage, or are in a world of hurt themselves and you don't want to add to their load, then talk to someone else.  A teacher, a counselor, an aunt.  As super says, when hormones come in, stress goes up, and high school is like the classic time for hormones.  In other words, you are not crazy.  High school is stressful and you are also being somewhat biologically sabotaged.  Coping with this might be a matter of exercise (it gets endorphins going and is more effective than an antidepressant) AND talking to someone, AND maybe changing the way things are in school (taking different classes, transferring, etc.)  I think you have to grab the bull by the horns, and you really have to reach out.  That is the first step, and often the hardest.  But it is do-able.

Do you have a pastor, an adult family friend, a trusted neighbor, your doctor,

Did something happen to you recently that  has caused you to have sudden mood swings. did someone treat you badly? are you feeling overwhelmed by your school work?

there is nothing that is so terrible that you should consider hurting yourself over. There is always hope for every situation.
You have to keep the faith and believe that there is a way to make things better.
