I am a 19 year old female. I get really sad for no reason everyday. I sometimes feel useless, worthless, confused, and lost. Some days, I have to force myself to get out of bed and socialize with my family or go to work. Only a few members of my family know I feel this way and that does not include my parents. I don t want them to know that I feel this way again because my mother treats me different when she knows. I pretend I m happy all the time but it s getting harder and harder everyday. When my mother asks me what s wrong, I always tell her, I m tired. I don t have the money to see a psychiatrist and at the moment, I don t have the money for medication either. Sometimes I think about hurting myself but I don t do it.
