My child was very much like yours. About a year ago things got so bad, you could say "hit rock bottom" that we sought help from 4 different doctors: her peditrician, a psychologist, a psychiatrist, and a gynocologist. Together we worked together to help her and the difference in a year is amazing. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

Just leave her alone and soon she will just get over it. It may take some time but she will get over it. I was like her ad after time I put it behind me.

Hey. First I just want to say that it takes a great mother to realize what is going on, especially when she keeps you out of it...or in her case...locks her i n. I am also a depressed teenager, but one thing that keeps me going is just having friends. It would be nice if my mom found me people who know what I am going through. I mean, at first I would yell at her and slam the door in her face. What can I say, I'm a tipical teen. But eventually, maybe if she showed me some of the things they say or how they describe how they feel, I would want to talk. Having emotional friends has enabled me to help them and feel like I am living for more than the perpose of just to be walked on or forgotten. and knowing I'm not alone helps alot too. Just having someone to say "and this is what i do" or "this is how i feel when..." or maybe just be there. "It is just a phase" doesn't work. Letting her shut you out like I have to my mom only makes her feel horrible when realy, it is a personal issue. My depression doesn't reflect my mom. She's light hearted and carring. It is more of the outside world...things i hear, see, looks i get when people look at me, feeling invisible because i am surrounded by outgoing people. it makes it all the more hard...I hope i helped a little...please e-mail me or even have your daughter e-mail me

I w\just wanted to say that Anti Depressints mask the problem. The surroundings will be there when the drug wears off and they also can become dangerously addicting. Every drug has risks. and sender her to a counselor may seem like you have turned against her. Personally, they are quacks. Even the best. A depressed teen like me, your daughter, and many many more, know that they are paid to do that, weather they want to or not. Your daughter may open up more if she feels you ar eon her side.

Tak to her yourself one on one.If that does not work get a doctor. Dont wait untill it is to late. Because you may not have a child to worry about.I am sorry to say that, but the question you need to ask is not WHAT DO I DO? It is CAN WE TALK?

gosh that takes me back to my junior year in highschool. she needs someone to talk to. there are so many reasons for her depression. it could be drugs, bad treatment school, something from the past that you dont know about. if she wont talk to you, please find someone that she will talk to. depression is a cry for help and knowing how to cry. good luck

i was suicidlal she could not want to go to school because she might get bullied she might not want to go because she has fallen out with her freinds. has someone close to her died. does she like a boy but he dont like her. are you to protective. talk to her as a freind and talk to her dont get her on anti depressants because they can be bad aswell as good. try and get her on a chat room to people her age it could help. hope i hekped. :) thinking of your family in this terrible time :)

all you can do is try talking to her and see what the problem is and be there for her. always you could tae her to see a councellor but it could make the situation worse. just let her no you are there for you

hey, i know what your daughter is going threw, i know because i'm going threw alot of that right now. you just have to try to talk to her, if she bottles it up for much longer theres a very strong chance she might hurt herslef, or give her a journal so she can write it down, she just needs to vent. you also might wanna consider a counceler, someone with that much sadness, might need proffesional help.

Hi, I'm a 14 year old girl with PMDD depression. This is a very difficult time for her right now. Make sure she can talk to someone OUTSIDE the family, such as a therapist. Try to think back to see if something triggered this depression, otherwise it could be chemical. Do not let her be alone in her room if there are things she can hurt herself with. Just be with her, even if you don't talk, just hold her and tell her it will be okay. She'll get through it, even though it feels like everything is hopeless. Believe me I'm there. I hope everything turns out okay.

Need help to make friends 

Name: e. | Date: Feb 6th, 2006 4:05 PM
Me being a teen myself and being manically depressed i know how she must feel. I have been going to therapy and struggling with anorexia since i was in the sixth grade, i am now a sophmore in highschool. Get her help. She may ignore it, or act like she doesn't want it...but she will thank you in the long run.

I was depressed once and all I could do was tell myself the bad points in life. You need to keep telling her how good her life is and give her coments to boost her confidence. Maybe try sending her to a drama club to boost confidence. Also you may need to take her out places that will make her happy. You could take her shopping or go to a theme park?

Depression is physiological disorder. It's not in her head!!

Take her to a doctor specializing in depression.

You will see a world of difference when she gets the right treatment.

I think you should bring her to someone who can help her. She seems like she really needs a doctor... If she doesn't want to do that, maybe you should talk to her first about it. Maybe there is something that you can tell her that would convince her that she needs to see someone... Stuff like this is very important
