    hey...dont worry!! Yahoo answers and we all there for help!!! I just say....make friends with who ever is near your house...i mean neighbors..small children..in fact they make great friends!! That's the first thing you need to do!! Then....join groups like orkut,face book,my space,twitter etc..but just be a bit careful...then....watch movies!!! There will be someone or the other approx. of your age near your home right?? make friends with them...take your friendship to the next level..by inviting them to your house...you going to their house....and then slowly hang out with them...have parties and fun with them!! Enjoy!!!!

    Life is too small!!!! Make every moment as memorable as possible!! Try to live happily each and every second...first try for temporary happiness(of course search for permanent happiness too...) as you dont know when...this life of ours will end!! It may end next moment in an accident....so....be happy...never regret anything in life!!!! Smile...............

    Hi Michael. I have been very depressed too. You're not alone. I have also felt incredibly alone before and in some circumstances this is completely normal. It seems like this is a phase. At your age a lot of people go through it.

    I think that several things would help you.

    1. Get a job/career/education that you like, respect, and that fulfills you.

    2. Consider moving out of your small town, which seems to be dampering your quality of life

    3. Work out on a regular basis (perhaps every day) to ease the depression and get you to bed at a decent hour with a good nights sleep.

    I think if you did these three things, the girlfriend thing would come naturally. A girlfriend wont solve everything, trust me. You need to get these things in place first.

    Good luck and hold your head up high. Remember, "this too shall pass."

    You sound depressed because you feel lonely. For a start, no girl will be attracted to you if your giving off miserable vibes!

    Do you have a job? College?? Hobbies??

    You need to get yourself out there, find a hobby, something to occupy your mind, that will not only relax you but tire you. You will also make new friends this way. It happened to me so I took myself to do a drama class and a jewellery design class, i've met so many good friends through this.

    Take some headache pills, drink plenty of water, lay of the alcohol (if you drink), eat plenty of fruit and veg, and get out there and do something you enjoy, for yourself!!

    you should do something that makes you happy. I'm pretty sure that you have hobbies. If not find some. Also why don't find your friends even small towns have phones that work. You don't sleep because it's bugging that you feel along. Once you find something to do that will help get your mind off your feeling along you will start to be able to sleep again.

    Try volunteering for a non-profit or church related group. This will get you out of the house and meeting new people as well as helping others which is bound to make you feel a little better about yourself and your abilities. Perhaps Habitat for Humanity or helping with the little kids in a Sunday school class.

    The thyroid gland is situated at the front of the throat, below the Adam’s apple. It comprises two lobes that lie on either side of the windpipe, joined in front by an isthmus. The thyroid gland secretes hormones to regulate many metabolic processes, including growth and energy expenditure. Hypothyroidism means the thyroid gland is underactive and fails to secrete enough hormones into the bloodstream. This causes the person’s metabolism to slow down.

    Dont worry mate. There are thousands of people who feel like you at this very moment. I get depressed in the winter with the dull dark nights but you have to keep thinking to yourself "Things will get better." Remember your never alone.

    Yahoo Answers probably isn't the best place for this. I have always found forums to be a great place to get support and discuss depression with others. A few worth checking out are...
