hi, my name is sara and im new here. i was originally looking for a forum for teens with depressed parents that were trying to deal with it, but i guess this place is as good as any. i am not one hundred percent sure if i am depressed because i dont wanna tell my mom, she has enough on her plate as it is. anyways, i feel ashamed of it (being depressed) sometimes because it might label me as "emo" or something when im not. so i guess i am one of those kids who bottles up their feelings. the main reason for my depression is my mom. she is depressed herself, since within the last two years her mom died, and her husband (my dad)left her. They say time is one of the only cures for a broken heart, so then why isnt it working? I want to help her so much, but she needs to help herself before I can. and im just so tired of it all. helping everyone. my best friend is also very troubled, and i am sick of helping her too. it's like i am the only sane/seemingly non-depressed one amongst everyone i live and hang out with. and i just feel like i cant do it anymore. im at my limit. and i always get the pressure to be the good girl who gets good grades because my brother is such a screw up pot head. and i just dont know if i can do it anymore. i dont know what to do. i seriously feel like im in the bottom of hole and i cant get out.
