I pretty much going to winter depression just as soon as I see the leaves are turning I hate winter that much. And plus I'm also going into my writers block depression insomnia combo platter downward spiral.

My bi friend is still intent on killing herself. She tried to OD during Labor Day weekend and I've been worried about her since then. I'm scared out of my mind that I'm going to lose her.

Can feel my life slowly falling apart, as well as my family life...

And it's all my fault.

My dad is drinking 113 units of alcohol in a fortnight (and that's after he's cut down!); my mum is fretting over everything and is stuck in a shitty job, and is complaining about ringing up my therapist as it's another job for her to do that I could do (but I hate phones). My brother goes to lectures, comes home and eats us out of house and home; my sister in Derby is facing a job fiasco... And as for me... Well, let's say I'm not at war with my own mind. It constantly feeds me toxic thoughts and tells me the I am worthless, useless and unlovable. I keep telling it that everything it says is bullshit, but it keeps at it. I need therapy so bad, but I feel guilty because I failed by relapse prevention plan and it's causing havoc on mum and dad because it feels like they have failed in keeping their youngest daughter safe and sound, and that I am not telling them everything that goes on in my head.

And then there's the fact that dad goes off shooting vermin every night leaving mum to do all the housework and I'm stuck taking all the abuse and mum and dad argue at each other and if they divorce then I'll be screwed.

it's wrecking havoc on my friendships as well... they're falling apart... and i've been having crying fits most nights now...

I don't know what to say. sad

Well, except for this. You're not worthless, you're not useless, and you're not unlovable. Your mind is telling you it's all lies and so are we. I don't know how much this is helping, but I do want you know that we're all here for you.

If my parents divorce, then I'm stuffed. Mum would most likely pack her things and move back to Kings Lynn to live with her sister and her family in their big Victorian home. If I stay with dad, it means that I get to stay at my current school, but dad will still be going out every night and killing things, and then drinking, so I will become even more emotionally distant from everyone. I go with mum, I will get emotional support, but I'll be with my aunt and uncle's family, competing with space and I'll have to start a new school from Y12, when I've already repeated a year...

Sorry for whining... Needed to get that off my chest

It's definitely one of those "between a rock and a hard place" scenarios. I'd say that you should at least try to voice these concerns to your parents (both of them at the same time, of course), but I hardly know enough to know of the possible repercussions (positive or negative) and say if it's a good choice. Since keeping this bottling in is eating at you, Pocky, what do you think?

I think they are staying together now, as they haven't had major arguements. Just discussions... But if they do start arguing like mad, I will voice my concerns...

-sigh-

It's all my fault.

No, it's not. No matter the circumstances, you can't rag on yourself for things that are out of your hands.

But my depression is causing me to act out of character, and it's causing pain to mum, who is taking it all out on dad...

Even if that was the case, you can't hinge on it to the point that it becomes some sort of self-fulfilling prophecy spiral.

I wish I could stay up longer and keep talking with you, but I need to get ready for classes in the mroning. Try to take what I've said into consideration, ok? And don't beat yourself up over it. You're stronger than you think. smile

Thank you...

Oh God... Think I am about to just have a full blown meltdown.

I bought a book on how to recognise and treat depression with the help of a therapist.

The book made me start recognising quirks of my depression/anxiety that I didn't realise were there, but everybody else did.

Like the catastrophising for example. And that time I called my brother a "cult leader" because he was "charismatic, wears a loud shirt, and convinces through his charisma to my poor ex-hippie parents that he does the dishes more often than I do, taking advantage of their ageing brains and convincing them to do awful things. JUST LIKE MANSON!"

That was an actual quote, after weeks of my brother missing the dishwashing duty because he was out at parties, wearing loud shirts and using his charisma to gain benefits from his social skills.

It appears that I may be catastrophising, but I wouldn't let my brother near any hippies. Just to be safe. *suspicious*

Or he could be, well, just a very sociable person and kind of a dick sometimes. xD

It's those damned loud shirts I tell ya!

To paraphrase Homer Simpson, "There's only two kinds of people who wear loud shirts, cult leaders, and big fat party animals. And he's not a big party animal!"
