I feel like my life is a constant battle for nothing...

Okay, so here's how my life is...

I'm 15 years old, I don't have any friends, I don't have a girlfriend, I can't get a job, I'm starting to hate my mother, I can't stand the lifestyle she's given me, and I'm constantly depressed, and everytime I ask my mom for help, she'll pitch me a few ideas and walk away, never mentioning it again. We recently moved about a half hour away from where we lived before, and it was only after that that I had anything in that town, so I have nothing here, and very little there. I'm not sure if I need advice, or just someone to talk to. Thank you for your time...

I both realize and apologize for not really getting to a point in my last post, I guess what I'm asking is, how can I work through my depression, and how can I take the initiative to make my life better?

When you go to school ask to speak to a counselor. They can guide you. Moving is depressing. Giving up everything that was familiar to you. In time you will adjust. Find activities outside of the home that interest you and get involved with them. That is the best way to meet people. Tell mom you feel depressed and ask her if she can take you somewhere for help.

Hi Overdrive ~ I would say first you should worry about staying at school and continuing your education, not about getting a job? What lifestyle your mom provides for you and why it bothers you?

I'm sorry that you've had to move away from where you were and you miss your friends and people you used to know. The good news is though, that you can meet knew people and meet new friends if you allow yourself to be open to it.

I had to move several times in my life, and the beginnings are always tough, but I promise, it gets better over time and you will adjust, and over time you might even like it. All the best to you.

Destinystar: The counselor idea wouldn't work because I'm homeschooled, and before you say it lol (most people do) I can't go to a regular school because I'm not academically capable of succeding there. And as far as finding things outside the home, there's nothing our here, we're a 15 minute drive from the nearest town, and my mom wont take me ANYWHERE. I've told my mom how depressed I am, but she doesn't seem to care anymore, it's like she thinks I'm a lost cause or somthing.

Matteo: I figured if I got a job that would help with multiple things, it'd get me out there meeting people, I'd be focused on something and not be thinking about these things as much, and I'd have a sense of self reliance. And as far as missing friends, those are the things I didn't have there until I moved here, I didn't have friends, I didn't know anyone, I was just...there, and being here seems to be even worse because I feel stuck, like there's no hope left.

And as far as the lifestyle, I live out in the middle of nowhere, I can't go anywhere so I'm stuck in the house all the time, I eat once a day, I don't get much sleep, she wont buy water so I'd have something healthier than pop, it's the exact opposite of what I want.

Hi,

Can you please explain a bit further why you do not go to school. (if that is something you feel comfortable with).

Do you live in the United States?

I do live in the US and I do not go to a regular school because apparently when my mom pulled my brother out (I was in the third grade) I wanted out too, so she took me out too

I'm sorry but you are in really bad situation, being home schooled and totally isolated from everybody and everything. I honestly think that you might be able to get help from child protection agencies if you resent your situation and the lifestyle your mother provides for you. I am not in states, but most of the posters here are. What state are you in? I am sure that someone will be able to give you more information if you need.

Being a 15 year old you definitively should have enough sleep, healthy food and drinks and eat regularly at least 3 times per day. Your mother is neglecting your basic needs, and I am sure you can find help for that. I don't blame you that you resent your mother, what she provides for you is no way to live. Pleas keep posting here and seek help. Hugs to you.

Overdrive- My oldest was homeschooled. I have a 14 year old that will go to a charter school 2 days a week cause he cant handle any more than that. We used to live isolated. So it is tough. It sounds like you really need help. I guess you could call child protective services and ask for a worker to come to the home and talk to you in private. Then you can get the help that you need. But you might not feel comfortable doing that. I didnt do that good in high school but the socialization part was great.
