Dear Anyone,

Lately, I've been very depressed. I find myself listening to more depressing music, and wearing more black. I broke up with my girlfriend of 18 months just 3 weeks ago, and I think it was a bad idea. I still love her, but the reason I broke up was because her dad wouldn't let her have a boyfriend. Now I'm with another girl, who I feel completely ignores me. She doesn't call, or talk to me on the computer. She acts offended that I want to put my arm around her, or kiss her when we say goodbye. To top off my existing problems, I go back soon to my hellish school with all of these kids I hate, and the fact that I barely have any school clothes yet makes it worse. And I also feel that my girlfriend will leave me when she meets someone new at school. I havent talked to any of my friends since summer started, and I feel alone. I hate this. I'm not suicidal but I hate how I feel. I really need some advice. Please guide me in the right way.
