    hi im 15 in year 11 i think i have lots of symptoms of depression or anxiety but havent been diagnosed or anything.i am with CAMHS been with them for quite a few months now .i am on the list for CBT(which is cognitive behavior therapy)i dont know when im starting that.i also dont think ive started much with my CAMHS worker but dont have a clue.i feel low all the time and feel like giving up im avoiding time with my family as i just want to be alone .i feel like everything i do is hard and a challenge. school is stressful and hard and cant concentrate when i try .the list could go on ,dont have motivation and just cant do school work .this lockdown in tier 4 doesnt help even though im not sure if anything much has changed for me. .i feel like crying all the time and sometimes i can cry for ages then i feel like crying and want to cry but cant physically cry.i do experience lots of thoughts towards suicide which is hard especially when im actually giving up with myself.ive also been having a lot of panic attacks recently which is also new to me .feel like life is too hard and my feelings are getting worse.my parents dont understand and have been saying things that don't help,my friends are all over the place with me as some are ok and then some have arguments.i dont know what to do and im already finding it hard to distract myself . im not even in the mood for new year

    i really dont know what to do and sorry to bother anyone .

    im not expecting a reply from anyone as i dont feel good enough for living but just had get some of this of my mind.

    hi

    that sounds awful. i can't give you amazing advice for everything but i want you to know that you are amazing and deserve the world. i know its almost impossible to take in coming from a stranger, but please hold on. it will get better and everyone around you wants you to be here when it does. please don't give up.

    for the panic attacks, when you feel one coming, take a moment to look at five things wherever you are, four things you can hear, three things you can feel, two things you can smell and one thing you can taste.

    if you feel a strong urge to d!e, there are lots of helplines that you can call and if you feel like a huge danger to your health or the health of others, call 999.

    if you can get help in away other than CAHMS (which doesn't seem to be helping too well if im not mistaken) then please do.

    keep holding on.

    Ixx

    (also you are never bothering anyone when you speak about you issues

    Hi,

    I'm nearly 11 (yes, pretty young) but I have been reading up on depression and anxiety, and I have so many panic attacks and i cant control them. I have a lot of symptoms of depression and anxiety but havent been diagnosed. I also clam up and start waffling everytime i try to tell someone, and then there's the numbness. I feel like i cant express myself, and isnt that waht kids are supposed to be able to do? I found a quote this morning that said 'children are happy bcoz they dont hav a file in there minds called 'all the things that could go wrong' and i got rlly annoyed as thats the only file IN my mind. I also have insomnia and all i want is for my existance to have been imaginary. sometimes i pinch myself wanting to know that i have dreamt my whole life but it never works :( I just want this to end and ive had so many thoughts pullin me down. plz, some advice would be amazing i just want to stop feeling low so i can get on with a normal 10 - 11yr old life thanks so much plz plz plz reply i know so many ppl have it worse and i just wanted to say im not trying to gain any sympathy i can give you advice if you need it aswell :)

    Hi!

    yes, i am 11yrs old but i have 2yrs experience of low thoughts, so I'm here to help! I won't be able to give u awesome advice but imma try to help :) Well, find a hobby, something that, altho there may be risks of ur self harming getting worse, makes you feel a bit better and raises your spirits. make sure you TELL SOMEONE as self harming is extremely serious, try the 1-2-1 counsellor chat with one of the childline counsellors. This could be due to suicidal thoughts, but, even though i hate these quotes, TRY to think POSITIVE! Just these happy thoughts can help a LOT. BUT for YOUR LIFE'S SAKE TELL SOMEBODY. this is the most serious thing someone could go through, and self harming has different types, so could you please reply and tell me what you have been doing to yourself?

    <div>Im 10 and still suffer with depression and sometimes wish to die (lovely right) but I haven't told anyone as I feel they won't take me seriously and say I'm too young I'm not planing to say anything soon but to be able to know that one person may know it's great. I have told a couple of close friends at school and they may the only reason I'm still alive today , thanks guys. But I'm just here to beg for one person to see this that will believe me. thank you for reading this!</div>

    hi i have suffered a lot through lockdown i had some old friends who bullied me and where so controlling i left them and they started bullying me and after how they treated me and being locked in doors and them doing it over the phone really took it tole on me they cried if i did not do something for them and would threaten me but now they just go around screen shotting everthing to do with me a posting it on the group chat. i have been dignosed with depression and have rlly bad anxiety i cant even go into public without hiding my body and face with a hoodie with the hoodie up becasue i am so scared i will see people like them and get judge again. it hurts so much inside with all the pain i just want to scream from it i also have had 3 failed atempts and still think about it but i am slowly getting better but i know it will never go away and it is now part of me from whst they did.

    Hi im 12 turning thirteen soon,

    Ive searced up online and google keeps telling me i have Adhd, An anxiety disorder and depression. But i cant just self diagnose myself from google, so ive realy been wanting to tell my parents to take me to the doctors or somet, but i know they will just say you are labeling yourself or just buy me some random book that doenst help at all. I have also been considering asking to take me to therapy but i dont yhink i can handle that because whenever i try to speak to anyone about this i end up having a panic attack and they will also just say that i dont need to go to therapy i can just talk with them but whenever i do i either get told off or just get told to stop copying things you have seen online so i dont know what to do.

    its kind of like i cant control my brain because like whenever i just tell myself that this thought is not true it just thinks about it more and more then other thoughts pop up likeif someone has texted me at 9 am and i only see it at 1 pm i will start thinking oh they must not like me or something because i reply late and when i text someone something and they dont read it straight away or they read it but dont reply i feel like i am disturbing them or something and they think im an annoyance and dont like me.

    I also struggle to stop figeting like one time i was in church i kept mooving my legs and it was hitting the pews (the chairs they have in a church) my mum told me to stop so i did for around a second then continued doing it and my mum told me off and said that i can control it and its just a habit i need to staop but the thing is i didnt even know i was doing it until my mum told me.

    there is alot more but i dont have many characters left so ill just finish there for now

    thank you

saying
exactly
