• Is social media making people stupid?

    Best answer: YES. There's literally ten year olds on Instagram pretending they're "in love" and posting stupid selfies and bullying others for how we look. I feel disgusted with how the world is going downhill so quickly.

    im 14, a girl and i think im depressed. i have panic/anxiety attacks a lot and i cry some days and i used to be really happy but im not anymore. my friends drink and do drugs so I've found myself doing that too. i have a lot of self hatred for myself due to my choices and history. things used to be really bad and i couldn't talk or move without being in pain and everything hurt most of the time so i just slept as much as i could. im not suicidal and i don't harm myself, i have too bright of a future for that. i used to be like this a while ago, and my mom suggested therapy or antidepressants but i said no. i don't want therapy-i couldn't talk to someone like that. i write all the time, about anything on my mind and such, and I've been thinking about going onto medication? my parents don't really know much about me-but they think i smoke weed. i always stay in my room and rarely talk to them, so i don't really know how they think im doing mentally. but yeah, I've been thinking antidepressants or medication will help me? i just want to be happy again, i feel awful for having my friends deal with me. suggestions?

    Best answer: I feel pretty well now, but have experienced chronic depression and anxiety and panic attacks in the past. The illness had a big impact on my ability to work, have healthy relationships- to do anything really. I spent a lot of time hiding away, feeling frozen and unable to do simple everyday things that I wouldn't have even thought about before I was ill.
    Looking back, I'm not sure what made the difference. I had a really good weekly psychotherapist for a number of years who was both warm and challenging, a very good old friend who understood, listened and helped me to remember being 'me', not just a bunch of sick and bad feelings. I wrote a journal every day where I just vented- some of the pages are random scribbles, swearing, drawings, poems, then I started to write down my thoughts about the day.It's amazing to look back on now- like a video of my life at the time.The drawings and poems that I thought were a bit rubbish at the time are actually pretty good!

    Whatever you decide to do, take it step by step. It must be achievable so you will actually do it- the moment you get that huge anxiety, you know you need to take a smaller step. I decided to do some voluntary work, helping out in my local park because I love nature and outdoors.I could walk there, no pressure if I didn't turn up, no pressure to talk to anyone if I didn't want to- then after a few times I started to enjoy talking to people started to realise I wasn't alone, started to realise I could think about something good, not just my problems. Then I did a community art group-same.
    Gradually I built up and did a qualification to teach adults, got some experience and moved on from there. Now I have a career I enjoy. I still need to take care of myself, I know I can get stressed, maybe drink or eat unhealthily, sleep badly etc, it's ongoing maintenance to stay well.
    Be patient and loving towards yourself. Best wishes x
