I can`t tell anyobody

by blue_dude15

The title pretty much explains it. I cant tell anyone Im suicidal and how bad my depression is. My parents are abusive, and they already yell at me for being lazy. To top it off, my mum believes that depression is caused by too much screen time, which is the most ridiculous thing I have heard in a long time. Technology is the only thing keeping me alive. Its almost laughable how my parents say I can tell them anything but then they re like this. I do have friends but if I told them they would probably tell my parents. I ve tried talking to those online helplines, but its not the same as talking to a person right infront of you. I dont know what to do anymore, sorry for the rant

Oh jeez. We got a case of “phone bad book good”, huh? Don’t apologize for ranting, you clearly need a place to do so, and what better place than a site meant for that sort of thing? It pisses me off that your parents are so unsupportive. When you have a kid, you sign up for EVERY possibility. That includes mental health issues.

I don’t have kids (by age i should have a couple by now, lol), but i’ve always wondered why it seems like people forget all about being younger after they’ve had kids. It’s like they delete that portion of themselves after becoming “grown ups”, and even if they usually know more about life than younger people (by experience) that doesn’t know they know it all.

And hey, if tech is keeping you alive so be it, and feel free to rant away, that’s one of the main reasons this place exists.

yeah, I also wonder why so many parents are like that, you describe it perfectly. Maybe stress causes it? But that doesn`t excuse a lot of stuff my parents do and say. (Sorry for the late reply)

Well I feel like crap now
I ranted at someone for internet crap – but it went unnoticed I guess that’s the good part –

The internet is a great escape when u need to relate to someone that gets it and depression is a complex thing- your parents are discarding the whole picture by giving an easy solution – they want to help in a way- their way- I’m sorry – i think every millennial gets you on this – and lol my parents are baby boomers so I could just imagine – my mom wants me to show her how to work a smart phone or else she has to switch back to the flip – no joke she actually fears being mentioned on “the facebook” bc she thinks it’s the talk of the whole entire world- and she’s really isolated herself/ I’m gonna try to get her into the “new world” and perhaps it will combat loneliness because the 3 digit phone number expired
