hi there! im a high school student and at first glance, i have 'a lot of friends'. Yet, i can't be myself around anyone since i'm ashamed of the person i am. there's so many people around me who say they care about me but i still feel so alone. and at times, i'd get mad at myself for feeling this way because im supposed to be grateful for all of these people. i no longer find joy in the things i do. for example, i used to play the piano religiously until recently, all i do is play to impress others and get frustrated and angry at myself whenever i make a small mistake. i have no idea what to do. there's always an uneasy and worrying feeling inside of me even when happy things occur. at this point, i find no enjoyment in anything anymore, and it makes me miss being a carefree kid again.

thank you so much in advance :))

Hi wednesday sorry you are struggling. Have you talked with your parents, a school counselor or some other trusted person about your struggles?
Many of the symptoms you have described are symptoms of depression. Your parents can help bring you to the doctor who can do an official assessment and prescribe treatment for what ails you. Have you thought about visiting a doctor and talking with them about how you are feeling? With treatment what you have been experiencing can get better. xo, j

Thank you so much j, i really appreciate your reply. i've talked to my parents about it before but they are still taking time to understand my feelings, which i don't blame them for. i've been trying to be more vocal about it though, because i do really want to find the cause and improve. i have thought about visiting a doctor since i dont think i can solve this alone anymore. thank you so much again for your response, it means the world :)))

It’s great that you have already spoken with your parents about this. It would be great if they could be a support for you as you work through this. You working in partnership with your parents and the doctor would be ideal in figuring out how best to treat your symptoms. Most importantly though, with effort things can get better. When things seem hard it’s something to keep in mind. Hopefully we can be a support for you here. xo, j
