Default just horrible unknown depression

Ever since i turned 13 im depressed for no reason that I can think off
Almost never smile,just thinking walking and not talking
Ignoring my friends and just not talking
Its confusing
I dont want to eat sleep and sometimes dont wanna live
I dont know what to do

If I stay in my room or sit in front of the TV a long time I get depressed. I make myself go out and I quit playing video games.

@apollo18 Hi, welcome to the forums depression is a lonely thing and utterly debilitating at its severest. I (and many other members) can empathize with how you're feeling. Your first instinct is to isolate yourself because you don't feel like dealing with anyone or anything... which is exactly what you should NOT do. Isolation is a breeding ground for the negative thoughts and feelings you're experiencing. It feels good at first, but treading in your sadness to keep from drowning won't work long-term, so don't get into the habit of shutting everything out. Force yourself to get some social interaction and go out places. It's not easy, but take my word for it, it will help you more than staying alone ever will.

Having people to open up to helps tremendously, too. You can vent and get advice on VT as much as you need to, but if there's anyone you know in person you can talk to, by all means do it. We're all here for you.

This is perfect and I wish someone had told me this years ago...

Forcing yourself to do things can help amazingly, I know it probably spikes your anxiety levels and you'll try to do anything to avoid going--I know I did, I could find so many things to do around the house to keep from leaving it when I don't have school or work, when what I need to do is interact with other people. We're all here for you, but, we're also all here and that's ok, but...there are people out there in the world, really close to you (you might have to spend a while looking for them, but they are there) that you can and should talk to, too. Meds can help, too, if you think you need those, try them...but, meds are nothing without knuckling down and forcing yourself to do things that you can't really even imagine yourself doing until suddenly, you are.

That's so rough. I dealt with it myself. I suggest writing your thoughts down in a journal. if that's not your thing- then find your favorite hobby and figure out a way to cool down and relax with that hobby : )
