I'm sorry OP that was so insensitive of your grandmother to say. Keep your head up, it'll get better and know there's people out there to genuinely help you if you need someone to talk to.

Just because someone says something, doesn't mean you have to accept it. Always remember that you are important! You matter to someone, and if you smile once every day, things will get better.

I have gone through the same thing and I know how it feels when someone says suicide is the answer. But you are beautiful, strong, and if you think no one cares about you you're wrong. I care about you, and I'm sure other FML readers do top. It's a bad place but the most important thing to do is get help. I really hope you can get out of this dark place. I am sorry for your loss

That's not completely true. It doesn't always get better. It got better for me, but only because I got on meds for it. But if you don't get on meds or find some kind of solution, it usually just gets worse.

#5, I know you're trying to be kind. As someone who suffers from clinical depression, I'd like to tell you that we absolutely get tired of people telling us to smile. Its really not a high priority for someone who wakes up every day and only sees the shadows. That said, it is hard to get better without some kind of support from family or close friends. While they may not completely understand what you are going through, they will listen when you need them. Sorry, OP, maybe your grandma has the w

Because they were raised in a world that wasn't so damn sensitive. Being blunt and to the point was preferred to being overly sensitive and never making a point.

Too many negative votes, comment buried. Show the comment

Because they're evil adults who just don't understand what kids are going through! I mean it's not like they were ever kids...

Wow, I love how she doesn't even understand that the person above her was being sarcastic. My mind is blown. "Exactly! OMG yeah of course adults were never kids!"

I was going to be meaner, but I already felt so embarrassed for her that she describes herself as "just a punk teenager" in her profile.

Well, it does run in the family, just like diabetes and high blood pressure. And if she says something like that again, I'd say you are totally good with asking her where she'll be buried, which funeral home she wants, if she worries about being buried alive, and if she would be able to plan this so that it falls during vacation time so you don't miss work. Be just as thoughtless.... Although I do hope she was accidentally unsupportive and apologizes. Depression bites!

Stay strong OP. Sorry about your grandma. Just know that there are people out there who are willing to listen if you really need to talk.
