Everyone does in bad times. If it's a regular feeling, you need to see a counselor.

I say this all the time, but exercise is the best anti-depressant on the market.

it normal for a teen to think about death.
i have
but if this goes on talk to a counseler or a trusted adult because sometimes the best thing to do is to talk to someone aboutwhats stessin you out and how your feeling about it.

Well pal you shouldnt feel as if you want to die, plz speak to your parents they wont be dissapointed with you, exams are stressful but listen look forward and think positive, distract yourself from the pressure lifes for living your only 15 and so much to look forward to. Your exams wont be there forever but you will, enjoy your life and im sure you will do well with your Grades, plz speak to your parents, or friends or someone you can confide in no 1 will push u away .. You hve came this far and posted this question, u seem a strong person so you dont have a serious problem, dont bottle things up and all the best.

u need 2 calm down and take time off your school work talk with sum 1 now rarther than later don't worry about gcse's i did no revision for mine and i now have a gud job any way your 2 young 2 die don't worry there's always abetter day round the corner sunshine always comes after the storm keep your head up talk with sum 1 it will help u loads instead of keeping it inside coz it will blow and you will selfdestrukt seek help in a Friend or your per ants

You should confide in a friend, who probably feels the exact same way, but adolescents is EXTREMELY stressful, plus your hormones are all over the place!!!!!!!!!! I felt just like you when I was your age. Fortunately I had the best friend a girl could have and together we suffered through. It was really helpful to have her to talk to and we took comfort that we couldn't be completely insane if we both felt the exact same way,LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! We stayed best friends into adulthood and I looked forward to growing old with her (we were going to be the Golden Girls) but she passed away unfortunately :( If you really don't have a friend to confide in, you might want to talk to your guidance counsellor or a professional. You shouldn't go through this alone. Life really does get better with age, I'm not just blowing hot air. These are, basically, the worst years of your life. Hang in Hun, I hope that you feel better soon :)

Sometimes I do yes. life just seems to be the same things with just more pain as you get older.

but thats's not to say YOU will feel the same, everyones experiences are different in this life.

Might be that the stressed of your GSCE's, pressure, depression, worry about disappointing and upsetting your parents is all weighing on your shoulders and feeling like it's more than you can cope with.
You should tell your Parents how your feeling. I wouldn't have thought they would be disappointed in you for feeling stress and depressed. They are your Parents they care about you. They would probably much rather you talk to them and feel better, than going through all this stuff alone. You probably will feel a bit better after talking to them to.

You might find also that after the stress of GCSE's are over you might feel better and can look forward to future a bit more. If your GCSE's don't turn out how you wanted them to their are other options like you can go to College and do a foundation course which will qualify you to do the course you want, you can retake your GCSE's in six form or there are college courses where you can retake them again.

If your depression and stress is to much maybe talking to your school nurse, doctor and maybe a therapist would help you to deal with your stress and depression.

I have anxiety and depression and have been trying an alternative therapy called Emotional Freedom Technique and it has really worked for me and helped me a lot. Since using it I have been feeling a lot better. It's very good at getting rid of all kinds of negative emotions and dealing with all kinds of issues quickly. It does sound bizarre but does work. Might be something that can help you.

I think everyone feels like that sometimes. You have to try to not stress over all the testing so much. Go with the flow. Remember too -- you need to learn to bounce with the ball in live -- the ball comes up and goes down -- that is LIFE and you'll get through it all. BUT my son was feeling like this at your age (and telling your parents isn't a bad thing) --- I'm GLAD he told me -- I got him counseling and it helped a LOT -- he's almost a Corpsman now --- and VERY HAPPY. You don't know where life is going to take you. You really should hang around for the ride -- you've got a lot of life ahead of you.....it's going to be okay - even when it's not okay!!! For real.

Talk to your parents, talk to someone that would understand your feelings.

I have a fear of death and the unknown.

I used to get depressed when I was in secondary school, its not uncommon, im sure it happens to a lot of people at some point in their lives.

You have no idea how much talking to someone about your problems helps, it feels like a weight is lifted from your shoulders. I used to feel depressed when I was alone, and I would lie in bed thinking dark thoughts. But then I talked to my family and friends about my worries and I felt so much better.

I know life can be tough, especially as school, since I went through it, but if you find things that make you happy and friends you care about then life seems a lot brighter.

Enjoy life, make the most of your teenage years and try your best at school. You can only do the best you can.

I hope you feell better and remember you are not alone.

I think this is something that every teenage goes through, I sure as heck did. What about life is difficult? If school is hard, try talking to your teachers and/or counselors. And don't underestimate your parents: if you tell them, they'll still love you and work with you. If you find you can't talk to a teacher or your parents, try someone objective. Therapists aren't as bad as people make them out to be, they can do a lot of good. Good luck.

Hi there,

Sorry that you are feeling so unwell at the moment, but try and hang in there things will get better if you get some support.

It would be a good idea to try and talk to your parents, if at all possible, but you can still get help even if you don't want to tell them.

Make an appointment and go and see your Dr, he will understand and will help and support you. It might be a good idea to write down how you are feeling before you go, then if you find it hard to talk about you can hand over what you written and let the Dr read it. If you have a friend who you trust you could ask them to go with you for support, they don't have to go in with you unless you feel you want them to.

I would also suggest seeing if there is a mental health charity in your area:


I work for one of these associations and we have a specific Young Persons Service, which sounds like the kind of thing that would benefit you.

They aren't as formal as the health services and they are used to dealing with these kind of issues, so they are very understanding and have lots of knowledge.

All you need to do is give them a ring, if they don't have a service for young people they will tell you where to go in your area.

These links to the Mind website may prove useful

Understanding depression:

Young persons introduction to mental health:

How to cope with suicidal feelings:

all the information is easy to read and understand.

Please make an appointment and go and see your Dr anything you tell him will be confidential, so don't worry about anyone finding out. The only way he can tell your parents is if he thinks that you are in danger or hurting either yourself or someone else.

Help and support is out there if you know where to look for it.

Hope this helps.

God, no! Your parents would be anything but disappointed if you went to them for help. But I can understand where you're coming from - my parents can be a bit awkward to approach sometimes.
I can totally sympathise with your situation though, sweetie. I'm now 21 but I felt the exact same when I was your age - I even turned to self-harming which only made matters worse. I sought out help from my friends - a problem shared is DEFINETELY a problem halved.
Just learn to pace yourself and don't bury everything inside.
You're young and only have one shot at life. Chin up, sweetheart - things can only get better

No Longer Dizzy
I think you're taking these exams too seriously.

...Time to do some hard work which you have not been doing enough off. Don't stress out as you can do better next year just don't leave it so late. Put in more hard work all the time and you won't feel so bad. Don't worry your parents will forgive you but they may be just a tad disappointed with your results. Just advise that you will do better....

just fine
..... wow your situation sounds almost exactly like mine.... im struggling with a class i never should have taken, my grades are getting lower my GPA is dropping and im depressed. The worst of it is my parents wont let me out and i thin the pressure is actually making me sick physically as well as mentally. Im even 15! I honestly dont know how normal it is but i feel your pain, your not the only one going through this problem......

please feel free to contact me through e-mail...

Speak with your parents,if you feel you cant,seek help @ your school.
Listen, your young,things will get better !!!

No, just take a minute to get your mind together, and try some relaxing exercises to help you unwind.

Jonas Brothers Stole My Heart
I'm in grade 7 and sometimes I want to 2 but like as long as ur not planning ur death and your not like thinking of actually doing it I think its pretty normal sometimes my friends tell me they want to do 2

the reason why your feeling like this is coz he pressure is too much with the exams and such...wait till they are over...you'll have a change of heart and be glad that you didn't die...we all have pressure sometimes, but we all have this inner strength to deal with it....i don't think you'd really want to die...imagine all the good stuff you'd miss out on...

sorry i don`t know what that means but i would tell your parents just to get it out and then they can help you with it!

The ultimate truth about Life is that we die.

As they say in the army, don't volunteer for it.

Conan the Grammarian
I used to wish that, often and earnestly. I was diagnosed with an illness called depression and received treatment for it. Now, I'm grateful to say, I am glad to be alive and well.

May I encourage you to try and find some help?

no I don't wish to die I wished I had won the lottery:D

your parents wont be disappointed in you, they would be worried. basically if you fail your GCSEs so what? you can resit them, there are always options. You need to take a deep breath and calm down. If you are feeling like you cant cope, speak to someone. Dont keep it bottled up. Seriously, the old saying is right - a problem shared is a problem halved.

Paul Ding
Life is especially rough at your age, and it's not unreasonable that you look at alternatives, including suicide. That's normal behavior.

It's when you obsess on it that it becomes worrisome. Have you figured out *how* you would commit suicide, or is it just a longing for everything to go away, and all the pressure stop?

There are all kinds of parents, some of whom would deal with this better than others. As a rule, though, kids with depression are the offspring of parents who were depressed as teenagers, so one or both of your parents may surprise you by being more supportive than you would imagine.

There are a number of treatments for depression. Talk therapy will sometimes work, but it can sometimes be difficult to find the therapist who works well for you. There are antidepressant meds that sometimes work. Maybe, you don't need an antidepressant, but an antianxiety med like Ativan or Klonipin. The way the world works, psychiatrists prescribe meds for you, but they don't have time to talk much to you, so they sometimes have to do a lot of guessing as to what you really need. There are other treatments as well, such as drilling a hole in your head and scrambling your brains with an icepick, or hooking you up to electrodes and frying your brains. Those are used infrequently, but some doctors seem to favor those techniques, and so you may need to be ready to say "Not just no, but h*e*l*l no" to that.

Thirty years ago, they favored a family of antidepressants called "tricyclics". They make you very sleepy, and perhaps that's not a bad thing. If you were to sleep for 20 hours a day for three months, it's like a "temporary suicide", where you are free of all those pressures, and you have time to recharge your batteries. After a couple of months, you start doing some exercise, perhaps walking a few miles a day, and the exercise starts flooding your brain with endorphins which make you feel good.

And a month or two later, you're bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to tackle the world. Boy, that sounds a whole lot better than offing yourself, doesn't you?

You need to get yourself some treatment, and there are a number of routes other than approaching your parents. The simplest is just to show up at a mental health center, tell them that you're having thoughts of suicide, and ask them if you could have a 72-hour evaluation.

That's what I recommend.

Hang in there. Life isn't supposed to be this hard, and there are many people who would want to help you, if only you made your needs known.

I did rarely in the past. But thing of the good things in life and think about your bright future.

no i do not wish i can die unless if i am in a big problem or situation.

gurl if u was older i would have said u is soo emo but i think u need to talk to somebody

you say you stressing over GCSE? its just a piece of paper that will mean absolute CR4P when your 23. trust me. its not worth thinking of ending your life

think of this... theres people out there who have no food, no home, are ill, have aids, cant walk, have no parents, no family.. and this is all one person, and yet they want to live.

and your worried about your GCSE's... think about it
