Question: I feel I want to die…Is this normal for a 15 year old?
For the past, goodness knows how long, I’ve had these waves of sadness which I am oblivious as to where they came from. They come as a down, anchoring feeling(weighing me down), and I cry at least twice during these times. They come unexpectedly, and I really can’t stress how much I don’t know why they happen. However, recently, I’ve started feeling as though my life is utterly pointless, school is stressful (im in my last year, ), and I heard college is the same, and so is getting a job. we never get a break from stress and hardships so I think, what is the point in staying alive if all that’s coming my way is this unrelenting sadness and stress? In short, I want to die. Suicidal, sure. I don’t have the means to do it, however, leaving my friends is something I’d never want to do, but I’ve been told to put my happiness before everyone elses, and this seems to be the only solution. Is this normal for a 15 year old to be feeling?
