Depression runs through my family. The fact that I am a freshman in high school makes it harder. Who doesn't have problems in high school? I think of myself as the strong one in the family. When I hit bottom then something is really wrong. I have anger management problems so dealing with things in the correct way can be hard. I have two sisters. One is a senior in high school. She hit bottom. She hasn't been in school since Thanksgiving. She is hopefully going back in February. Her depression got her. She wanted to die. Her best friend became her worst nightmare. Her friend called her a whore and had the rumor going around that she was sleeping around but as a matter of a fact, she has been home all day everyday. What was supposed to be her best year, became fifth grade again. That was when she went to the hospital for suicidal thoughts. Gone for weeks and the principal called and asked when my sister would be back. Not in a nice way. My mom was fed up with it and she broke too. Soon the principal resigned and no one really knows why. At least this time we have a man who understands and helps us instead of insisting my sister be back. I guess this isn't really my story but it's a story of one I love and care about.
