Thanks so much for replying - so I do have a gp who I see a lot but unfortunately he is a close family friend who I don't feel comfortable talking to. There is a female gp located next to my school who i could talk to but I'd have to wait till school starts again to see her. Thank you for the writing advice, I'll do it when the time feels right and my mother is in a good mood. :)

Uh hi, In the past few weeks things haven't been good for me. My Mum yells at me for having a messy room and not going outside but it isn't due to laziness - it's something much worse. I'm 17 and going into grade 12 in under a month. I've been on school holidays for around 5 weeks and my schoolmates always make plans with each other and if I ask to join they always hesitate then say no. I try to get out with friends but always get shut down. My family goes on about me needing to go outside and get a life but it hurts a lot. Many people have labelled me a bad person and a waste of time. All I do is stay indoors and wake up at 1am each night crying. I want to tell my mum but she'll only get angrier at me... I've self harmed in the past few days and due to my already diagnosed depression getting worse I've been getting suicidal thoughts. Please someone give me advice; I don't want to live anymore and I'm scaring myself with my thoughts. How do I get help or tell my family what is going on?
