Ok, so we were told to talk about our mental health in the comments. Well, here’s mine.
By the way, for context, I’m only 16, almost 17.

So it all really started last year for me. I went through a traumatic moment in my life, and I didn’t think that I was going to get by. I fell deep into depression, grew a strong sense of anxiety, and as a recent online test shows, I may be psychotic, as well. I was actually only days away from committing suicide, but thank the Lord that I serve I was given music to help me through. The specific band was named Citizen Soldier. I still listen to them when I start to feel those feelings coming back. I told my parents about it all, and they weren’t exactly the most supportive. They still aren’t, actually. See, when a teenager is feeling like this, what do you do? You find a therapist. However, I never did, and I still haven’t. And a few years ago, I also fell into a pornography addiction, and it destroyed my life. I still continue to struggle with it, and I battle it every single day. So I would just like prayer and support for all of my mental health, because right now, my health is starting to get to me. I keep falling back into depressive states of mind, and I keep breaking down crying, feeling like I am alone, and thinking that I’m better off dead. I have music as my own free personal therapist, but it’s starting to not work anymore. Nowadays, the only thing I want to do is hang out with my girlfriend. The only problem is, I don’t have one. I’ve been single my whole life, and it’s eaten me up a little bit.

Thank you for listening to the words that I’ve been trying to say for about five years now. I love you all, and smile more.
