I think I just waited it out, personally. After a while, things stopped effecting me on the same level. I suppose I just grew out of it, I don't know. Additionally, some circumstances changed and through the years I think people just learn how to overcome certain problems and feelings - how it's best to deal with it and such.

Although, admittedly, it doesn't seem to stop me making some of the same old mistakes. Typical, eh?

There is such a thing as "teen angst" but that's such a derogatory phrase IMO. I think many things affect you when you're in your teens and they don't seem like such big deals when you get older. Possibly because you've got bigger things to worry about (mortgage, bills, rent, work, etc.). That isn't to say that what is bugging you right now isn't important. It's important to you. It's just age helps you get a bit of perspective on things.

I still throw the rattle out of the pram about silly little things so I wouldn't worry about it biggrin.gif

If you wanna whine at someone, feel free to PM me and I'll listen, nod, smile sweetly, pat your head in a patronising manner and tell you you'll grow out of it soon enough! (jk) tongue.gif

Heh. That's what precisely what I meant. You just said it much better.

Pixiegoth, you are talking like I'm a depressed teenager.

Damn it you misunderstood the title. I don't need help, I just need a higher post-count!

Well you don't give your birthday on your Profile and usually you get people asking about teenage depression when they are teenage and depressed! I put two and two together from what you gave me. Sorry 'bout that. I won't care in future tongue.gif

S'okay Pixiegoth, I'll mail you. I'm a depressed teenager. tongue.gif

Well, there's a difference between adolescent depression and "teen angst", at least in my mind. Depression is a diagnosed disease, while sometimes teen angst is just something normal teenagers get into.

Unfortunately I'm in the first group! dry.gif Dealing with it has always been hard, and there are days when I think I'll just up and quit (and one day where I started to). After the whole nerve-wracking mess after my suicide attempt and then reconsideration, I'm tossed into therapy. Nothing ever seems to work very well with me - I struggle with the stupid disease constantly. Pills...*glares* don't do much but get me hooked. Usually they don't affect how I feel, unless I quit them cold turkey - and then I really get off the hook. Therapy and meds...and I have my BAD "coping skills" and GOOD "coping skills". I write and read and stay online and watch TV a lot, listen to music, and sometimes I can feel better. On the bad side I tend to self-injure. Nasty habit that.

I'll tell you, it is no fun. And if anyone here just STARTS to feel horrible, talk to someone before it bottles up. Most things have to be talked out, which is bleh for me. But hopefully, you won't end up like me...and I'm not all that bad! smile.gif
