Are you currently seeing a doctor or therapist? If not that is what you want to do as soon as possible.

Because you are a teenager, I'm assuming you are under 18 and in that case, I suggest you go to one of your parents. Hopefully they will understand and take you to see a doctor. If you need help right now try calling a crisis line or talking to your parents. There is a link on this page on the left side that says "Crisis Assistance". At least then you will be able to talk to someone about what is going on right now.

I know it is scary to talk to your parents about something like this. Are you sure they would think this of you or do you think it is the fear of them knowing what's wrong? I also wonder if they already think something is wrong and are just not saying anything. I know if my daughter were to tell me something like this, I would not think any less of her and I would not think she is a freak. I would want to get her help so she would feel better.

Please give your parents a chance to help you. Maybe try writing them a note instead of talking to them face-to-face. This might be easier.

The reason I'm depressed is because they dunno about my sexuality and if they do they'll see me differently.. And another because my mom dosent understand me period.. It's so bad sometimes I just wished I killed her then myself..
