I have been dealing with depression and stress for years, I have a boyfriend I'm very close with and parents I text once a day, but I still don't feel like I'm doing enough for myself. I'm in my second year of college & stoped taking classes but my parents don't know that, I'm only 50% done.

I have a lot of problems, I'm really glad I came to CR, I found many different people to talk to on here. But something is really missing from my life. I feel like I'm wasting so much time.

I am glad anime helps you but CR is a dangerous place. People here can be vindictive and cruel and most tend to be extremely perverted and creepy. I know the feelings of restlessness you are having. Everyone goes through them at one point or another. Meditation is wonderful for depression. I am always around if you need a friend.

I agree. Most people here are dumb creeps.

What you need is dopamine. Have sex, do excersize, make small goals in your day to day things and achieve them.

You're probably better off with an actual therapist, as it seems fairly serious if you've been skipping all your classes for a while.

If necessary, you may be able to take a Leave of Absence if you're getting therapy (as opposed to flunking/dropping out). This could be anything from a couple weeks to a year or more, depending on the circumstances.

I'd recommend letting your parents know you're struggling with depression/stress (they're going to find out one way or another), as well as discussing with them and the school what your options are and how best to get your life and/or education back on track.

I said most not all. So long as you don't perv you are fine. So many here do. No joke.

Sad that you are seeing this at 17. The mods turn a blind eye to it all.

Yes, a lot of people here (and everywhere online) can be creeps and idiots, but there are good people to be found as well. Figuring out which ones to trust and which ones not to can be taxing. but is necessary.

Taking advice from strangers in a public forum might not be something you want to do, either, but here I am about to offer some!

Use these forums to relax, take your mind off of things, etc. Look at everything here thats more serious with a critical eye.

You mention being in school (but not attending classes). If you are still connected with your school (not officially withdrawn from classes) look at their counseling/mental health services. Most schools offer something, usually at an affordable rate. Depression and stress might be situational, might also be clinical, but a professional can help you figure all that out and offer a treatment plan or other way through it.

I wouldn't worry about wasting time. While it doesn't necessarily feel like it, you have time to waste at your age (assuming your profile is correct). It took me 5 1/2 half years to finish college, and I know a person in their mid 50's who is graduating this spring. You have time.
Don't worry about your parents either. Take care of yourself first.

How does a perv not perv... thats like saying okay horse stop being a horse. You cant stop the things that go on in your head. You can however have some self control and not act on the stuff in your head when its not appropriate.

So the problem are the boys with no self control not us pervs 0.0

Bingo. Issue is most don't care. They add 13-17 year old chicks and push for sex. Even though there are rules against it.

Do you spend a lot of time online? I've had a couple of friends go through rough patches and they all were glued to their pc doing nothing but surfing the web 24/7.

In all l fairness 16+ is legal in most countries. The average age on the forums is roughlt 21. 16-21 is only 5 years apart...
But I do agree older men should not be requesting sex from underaged girls or girls who are under 20 and the age gap is to large.
But younger women should also not be going after older men when they are underage which happens very often as well.

If it were that easy, CR would be safer. I know of some guys here who make tons of side accounts and lie about their ages.

If you can affored an actual therapist that'd probably be your safest bet, no offense to the therapists on here...but I doubt most of the people here on crunchyroll can deal with the problems that are on your mind.
