I don't really know what to say. I'm fourteen years old. I live in the the Pacific Northwest. Washington, specifically. Since I was ten or so, I've struggled with major depression. It usually stays with me for eight or nine months and then goes away for three or four. Although I might feel great about myself sometimes, I always end up feeling like shit. There's been a lot of stuff in my life in the past couple of years. I divide my time between my mom's house and my dad's house. My relationship with my parents is... complicated. I try to please them and make them think very highly of me. They brag about me at work. I've been hiding my depression from them for years now. I don't want to break their hearts. I'm also a deeply closeted homosexual. I've known about it since I was thirteen. I've been fairly good at concealing it, but it hurts to hide it. I'm fine with it, but some others might not be. Please ask me questions. I am not afraid to answer them. I want to get to the root of my problem and hopefully fix it, if possible.
