GIRL TALK: Down In The Dumps

I was just wondering if you could give me some advice for depression. I've been feeling really down and flat lately. I feel like I'm useless and have no talent even though I used to think I did. Please help.

Depression is a disease that can be treated and something that you can definitely get professional help for. Because I am not a doctor nor an expert in the field, I do not want to give you the wrong information. I highly suggest that you ask your close guardian or parent to take you to your doctor.

Do not feel alone during times like these because there are hundreds of girls out there experiencing the same thing, babe. If you don't think it is that serious that you have to seek professional help, talk about your feelings and what's going on in your head with a close friend, parent or guardian. Letting out what's inside helps A  LOT.

You might also want to try getting involved with more activities in school, church or the community to keep yourself busy.

<3, Sharon
