You're Wrong. by rinatan-chu You're Wrong. by rinatan-chu
In middle school was when I was diagnosed with depression. And up until I switched high schools, middle school and high school treated me like I was incapable of succeeding and I needed "special" help; as in, be confined by myself, away from other students, with treatments of a so called "crazy person." They wanted me to take special classes because I was "emotion disabled."
But I am smart. I am talented. I showed them wrong.
If anyone tells you "You can't," don't give up. If you believe them, then it will happen and you won't do anything.
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. It is not like they're better than you. No teacher is better than you. No counselor is better than you.

My depression is not a disability. It is just something I need to live with. And with my depression, I found art and have succeeded.
With that, I think I may do an illustrated story/comic based on it.

You managed well to convey the state of depression in young people. I know this because I am prone to depression. Well shown closed

Worries me that anyone would view you that way. I always assumed the role of a teacher/counselor was to aid you and guide you through those problems.

Sorry you had such a bad experience.

One would assume so. But there are people who don't understand everywhere. I have found teachers and counselors that do care.
I am a bit crazy but don't you think everyone is in their own way?

I know I am and have been over time. The good news is that the more control you get in your life the easier it is to cope but there ARE some bits of baggage you just have to learn to keep with you.

Always treasure those who know and share in your inner demons. They become rarer and more prized in later years. I regret losing a lot of my friends from younger days.

I can not agree with you more. I have, for a long time, trying and learning to control my depression. It will still come up but I have been recognizing what I do and I know how to get myself out of it.
I wish I did have those kind of people. However, people outside of my family who know how I got are no longer in my lives and prefer it that way because they are afraid of me.
My teachers said I "alienated" myself from the other students and the were scared of what I might do next.
It is better that way.
I never had real friends.
