Wow, thank you so much for all the replies!! It may not mean much to you, but for me its like a light in the dark night. I read all of your replies and it was nice to hear that many of you have fought your way through depression. About medication, I don't think that is necessary, its not severe. To be honest, the thought of suicide has not even crossed my mind, I am just worried that I will waste my life in a puddle of sadness. It makes me even sadder to think that a young 12-year old is already struggling with what seems to be depression. But also, I was happy to know that you are satisfied with my decision to talk with my best bud. This might sound a little silly, but I am more comfortable talking with my BFF than with my friend. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it is because I'm afraid my parents will freak out and demand a counselor, no matter how much I tell them that I have no intentions of killing myself. Maybe it is something else. Anyways, thank you all so much, thank you for being the beam of light in my dark sky.
