Miss Lonely

Thu, Aug 19th 1999

I'm a junior in high school and I've been suffering from Depression for about a year now. This has made things really difficult with my friends as I have isolated myself from some and clung to others, and none of my friends have really understood what was wrong with me. Now that I feel more like being a part of the group, nobody will accept me. Everyone says either that I ignored them completely or I clung to them and mimicked them constantly, and they have all given up on me after feeling hurt. Yet, I don't feel that my actions were completely my fault considering I was suffering deeply from depression. Now all my friends hate me, and when I try to talk to them, they refuse to believe that I was doing any of this for anything other than attention. Everything has turned into a huge popularity contest, and I'm at the bottom of the heap. What do I do? I can hardly function from being so lonely, and I can't help blaming and hating myself for all of this. Please help !
