Question Am I Depressed?

I live with a religious family. I am pansexual and in the closet. When I was 8, I told some friend's online that I thought was bi because I had kissed a girl and my mom found out. She cried and said that she felt like she failed as a mother. We had a conversation and I convinced myself I was just confused from all the queer youtubers I watched. I totally forgot about it until middle school. I started getting anxiety because I didn't want to move grades and possibly lose my friends. I started getting angry at myself for liking genders other than male. I started getting sad because I had a crush on my bestfriend who I've ignored for the past few years. Whenever I go to meeting, I feel worthless. I feel like I don't deserve to be there. That I'm disgusting. My sleep schedule got messed up and my self image has plummeted. I procrastinate on my work and I've considered killing myself but I've never had the guts to try it (thank god). I can't keep one weight for a long period of time and I feel sad and angry all the time. Am I depressed or just feeling sorry for my self because I'm in the closet? (i have two family members with bipolar disorder if it helps)

I think you are unhappy because you can't be yourself.When you are comfortable with who you are you can be truly happy. I hope you can be happy and please don't feel guilty for not being the person your family wants you to be.If they love you they'll at least try to accept you.☺

I'm so sorry to hear this. Sometimes, life can be a struggle and it takes time to overcome your challenges. Don't get down on yourself because of all the negativity in your life right now. You could try to distract yourself with TV or youtube videos.

I think it would help for you to call a suicide hotline in so you can find people to talk to. Please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or the Trevor Project if things start to get hard.

Try to take some deep breaths and let the stress go.

I hope I helped.
