Hey to start off with I’m 13 and actually had lesser depression about a year ago I know it sounds stupid but it just feels like life is kind of shit to me right now. To start off with 3 close relatives have died since covid has come luckily none of them died by it but those 3 died in like a space of 4 months and I haven’t had much time to mourn them kind of and I’m worried because after the 3 death I didn’t really feel that sad about it like I still felt sad but not like the death of a loved one kind of sad if you know what I mean. Then secondly one of my moms friend’s daughters and a classmate of mine has a tumor in her brain and she has to go through serious chemo and I just don’t know really what to do about it or what I can do normally I’m a pretty strong dude emotionally and physically but since all of this has happend i just feel broken if that makes sense. Thirdly about a year ago me and my girlfriend broke up because of the long distance between us after I moved and its rough because I’m a pretty quiet guy I mean I have friends and crap who think I’m funny I just dont like meeting new people and stuff like that except I like this one girl who I’m okay friends with but but I’m to afraid to ask her out because of the laughing stock I will be if she said no.
