My mother doesnt accept me being a lesbian and has tried to destroy my relationship with my partner, I have had to tell my parents I broke up with her and keep the relationship a secret. Now sadly for family reasons my partner and kids have had to go to go to Australia and I am left behind with out her. I get more and more depressed each day we are apart. What do I do??

Ok Ima be perfectly honest here because if I'm not what's the point my name is George im 21 years old living in christchurch. I Have no job and I'm homeless
To be perfectly honest iv never told anybody that I'm depressed instead I interalise every little moment to myself
And I don't know if its pride, shame or somthing else but I can't even say the words I'm depressed
My depression has gone on for years
I say hidden because I'm known as quite a smiley guy but 99% of the time
And the smile is a mask so that nobody dare know
Times are rough and this is a fragment of my story
Is it okay to feel like this?

I've been feeling down for a couple months now. July to December and it's on and off. I'm not sure if it's depression or me just being put down by people at home and people at school.I feel un-wanted in all places, and have very few friends. I have major trust issues and always doubt myself and others, and I find myself pushing people away. I feel alone most of the time and on average I get around 5 hours of sleep, and I'm tired and sore in the mornings. I cry alot at night and have a feelings journal, but nothing's helping me get better and think positive.

Im really sick at the momment so going out for run or doing execrise is not option until I get better. I have to stay at home most days with limited vists from friends and family.
I really want to kick depression so I can start to get better before the next term starts as I have already missed alot of school

i think a good way to get over it is to tackle it head on. find out the source of it and maybe talk to someone. Just remember that you are never alone in life and that there is always someone you can talk to even if you dont know it.

Try to focus on your school work as much as possible. try to go to school, and if you can't- get school work from your teachers. Distract your mind as much as possible. :)

Everything is getting on top of me and I think I am about to have a breakdown.
I moved to Hawkes Bay after a bad relationship I was offered a job I was so excited about but I ended up losing my job due to me having a bad reaction to the chemicals and the owners thought it would be better to terminate my contract then wait to see if I will adapt to the environment 90 days law.
Now I am unemployed I have applied for every single job available in my area. Work is so hard to find I am on the job seekers benefit after my rent is taken out I am left with $42. I have asked work and income how I can live on $42 they said it wasn’t their issue and I need to find work which I do every day online, cold calling, Dropping my cv off I use $2 for printing cost.
I have attended interviews with no luck as other applicants are more qualified. This has been happening for the last 3 months. I am struggling to survive. I’m living off grants which I have to pay back to work and income. My car is about to get repossessed work and income won’t help with that my car is what I use to get to interviews my area does not have public transport.
My family won’t help me. Everything is getting so hard my energy is low I am usually a happy person and never allow things to get to me.
I want to cry all the time I can’t sleep because my mind is racing “how am I going to pay for this and that”. I have not been eating much as I don’t have much I can’t even go to the doctors here cause they have fees and I don’t know where I can go to talk to someone what going on with me. I know there is something wrong my mood is like everyone and everything has given up on me I’m tired and exhausted I don’t know what I can do anymore
Can't let people in

I've been living with depression for over a year. I'm struggling to find people I trust and so it becomes a challenge to speak up. Can u help?
allyjelly >> 26/11/2014 3:59pm
I can't really help but I'm feeling the same way too. I feel like people will treat me differently or laugh or something if I tell anyone but I really just want someone to talk too. Its quite hard just acting normal but its even harder to tell someone. If you have any ideas, it would be great to hear...
Saph >> 06/12/2014 10:34pm
I feel exactly the same. I have just found one person I can truly trust and they're doing their best. It's best that you don't wait until things get really bad like me because then it's harder and takes longer to get better. Do u have someone you can trust?
What do I even say?

I've never been good with words so I over react my feelings so that people notice, but they don't. I want them to know so they can be there for me, so how do I tell them? I just need a shoulder to cry on...
What's the point trying?

My life is a complete disaster. By the time I was 20 both my parents had passed away, I was unemployed an wasting my time getting a useless degree. I turned 22 yesterday and celebrated by cleaning ovens in a backpackers where I sleep in the same room as 5 strangers every night. I have no friends or family. I have no money I absolutely no future. I can't even remember the last time I felt anything other than anger or sadness. Should I just give up and resolve to a life of misery?
Gingy >> 30/11/2014 11:16pm
I was 8 when my Dad passed away, I can only imagine what it's like for you, I'm so sorry for your loss. But no. you should never give up! Life is a wonderful thing that is only experienced once. You have to make the most of it. Try get motivated, try getting out and making new friends. I know that it is really hard to make friends, I had to try do it at the start of the year, it took a while but it is most definatley worth it. You just have to get out of your comfort zone a little bit which can be scary but you can do it. And a degree is never worthless! You can get a good job, maybe save up, travel or buy a house or an apartment. Just make a change and try make a fresh start. Maybe try running? Let your anger out, I find it is good to clear your head as well. Im sorry if this is no help to you, but I believe in you. I know I'm only a stranger, but please... don't give up..
Why does it feel like this?

I have a family that love me but I still feel so alone. I get good grades and I have a job but I feel so much pressure and I'm still not happy with myself. There is so much stress on me to be the strong girl who always has a smile on my face but nobody realises its just an act. Why do I still feel like this when my life is so good compared to half the world? I don't even feel like I should be depressed because i know that others go through way worse things than this.
Am I really depressed?

I'm always feeling quite okay in the daytime, but only at night time when I'm alone I feel really down. It's been fine until about two months ago when I relapsed, but I keep convincing myself I'll be alright in the daytime. I'm not sure whether it's serious enough for me to get help. Because I'm fine in the daytime right?
lonerunner >> 18/11/2014 9:53pm
It could be a thing called Insomnia, that is if you are also dealing with the inability to sleep. Or it could just be that your anxious, and that sucks aswell. There's something about it, because during the day you are aware and busy and distracted, but in the night it's just you and your heartbeat. Try methods of distracting yourself before you go to sleep.
