    I've been depressed since I was a teenager and I've been on and off meds since then. I've recently been diagnosed as bipolar #2. Even though I'm not depressed anymore(thanks to heavy medication), i still have this melancholic feeling all the time.

    but yes its extremely positive! only downside is that she is 2 hours away. but ive had a different mindset since i met her. its a positive influence on my life for sure. ive only had one or two short depressive bouts in a week or so.
    i think that's usually the age people go through many changes. if you don't include my depression at 20, those years were the toughest of my life, too... i remember my mum telling me afterwards that my parents were also worried, because i spent so much time alone in my room and was in a cranky mood a lot. i think it's usually just normal puberty hitting you. for introverted and sensitive people it can be a little different than for more extroverted and assertive people.

    it's great that you have someone in your life you want to know and who wants to know you. it's good to have friends to relate to.

    the teenage years are usually the hardest in a way, because you are growing up and the relationship you have with your parents is changing.

    do you yourself feel like you have changed a lot as a person, or do you think you are just getting to know yourself more and having a more reflective time in your life right now? what do you think caused this to happen? (did it happen gradually from puberty to now, or how did it happen?) are you feeling bad, because you have changed, or are you feeling bad, because people don't seem to understand you very well right now? do you talk with your parents?

    if you ever want to talk, just send me a message.

    I agree with what yvonne said.

    Also, in our busy world, we have lost a lot of what it is to be compassionate and loving. It's cliche, but time goes so quickly that it doesn't take long for parents and children to grow apart. I'm sure it saddens your parents (mother) to know not what ails you or how to help you, and the distance she feels from you. Perhaps when you are older and have found yourself a bit more you can come back and re span the gap that was created between you that wasn't your fault. Know that you are awesome in your own way, even if your mother doesn't recognize you or understand you right now.

    It's wonderful this relationship has been a positive influence. Remember that the core you is the most important thing to maintain to have lifelong happiness; being able to be happy and love yourself, independent of others.
