Listen to me Iknow what you are going through. You need to talk to a school counsler and they will put you in the right direction to get help. if you read my profile you will see nothing is worth taking your own life. It took me a long time to see that but I am ready to fight for everything i have and you should too. dont let people say you are too young to be depressed that a load of crap. get help where ever you can. God bless and stay here!!!!!!!!!!! Reply

The Unitied Way can provide help.  Also most of the major drug companies have assisstance for treatment.  When I was your age I got my drugs free.  You just have to talk to your doc about it.  Also don't give in.  It can get better.  Find a free clinic if you need to but definetly get help.
