A female United Kingdom age 26-29, anonymous writes:

I'm a 15 year old female. Lately, i've been really down with myself, i don't really know why [AND it's not the 'time of the month']. Maybe it's just my life-routine - my parents are having goes at me 24/7 which really doesn't help and they are repeatedly saying how moody i've been recently, i start feeling real embarrassed when they comfront me about it and just have to 'fake' a smile and try to 'look' happy! I must admit, i've had difficulties lately involving a teacher who i absolutely adore and it's been so hard to accept i'll never be with him as he's married [so i heard]. So perhaps this is whats getting me like this - I just feel so depressed, stressed and fed up with myself, I don't understand why! Is it just hormones or what?

Yes, your right, its hormones, unfortunately.

When i was 15 my mum always called me an 'inbetween', basicaly meaning i wasn't a child but i wasn't an adult.

All the frustrations that came with ebing a teen put be in foul moods 24-7, but they do pass and you wil find you start to enjoy yourself alot more as time goes on.

As for your teacher i had a major crush on my businesss teacher he was very young and the same age as a previous guy i was seeing, this made it more annoying to the fact he referred to me as student all the time, but it is someting that fades and you do realize it was just a crush.

Wish you the best of luck, dont put yourself down too much im sure your a great girl who just needs some fun :)

I am 25. When I was 15, I wanted to kill myself. But just remember, take it from me...It does get better. A lot better. Please be patient. And don't do anything you'll regret when you're older.

Royofthe Rovers agony aunt15 years old is a hard age to cope with, so many things spinning around your head you dont know whether your coming or going. You got school, friends, teachers, social pressure, parents and their pressure everything...

Chances are this is just a stage you are going through, as you suggested maybe hormone related.

Do you find happiness in anything you do? Is this stress and unhappiness just at particular times or is it more constant?

Your mind is as never as active as when you are a teenager so expect yourself to feel pressured its how you deal with these external forces which make you who you are. If your depression is really affecting you as a person and having a negative effect on your social ife and school work then i would suggest a school cousellor, who you can talk to.

Parents are always looking out for you, dont take it too personally. They remember what it was like to your age, they may just forget sometimes thats all..

Talking about your stresses and things is a good way to find a short term relief from depression and other anxieties so have you a good friend or an adult you can open up to?

Stay strong, i dont think it is anything serious just remember who you are and remember your strengths and use them to your advantage to get you through this difficult time.
