what do you call a person who stays depressed about 93% of the time? I don't know what's wrong with me, I'm never happy anymore. The only thing I ever do anymore is sleep, school, eat or cut myself. I don't know what started me cutting I just picked it up one day and I haven't stopped it. But I don't cut every day, I want to but I don't. what's wrong??

Clinically? You call them chronically depressed. And it is fairly common in adolescents.
No one but you can know what's wrong, honey, but I'd advise you get some help. Find a therapist or a school counselor soon so that you can find out what is wrong and work through it in a way that is healthy, which self-mutilation is not.
Yes, therapists are wonderful people. I just started seeing a new one, she's excellent, as I imagine most are. Before I was like you, depressed all the time ( I never cut myself though, I don't like blood). But I could never wake up, or I never wanted to see anyone. And I blamed myself for it, too, which was totally wrong. And one night I completely broke down, crying, everything. I didn't go to school for a week, almost. I saw the new therapist, and after talking to her once, I felt better.
But, I got answers why I felt this way. After seeing her for a bit, we just recently established that I'm Bipolar II. I don't blame myself anymore, and that's a great deal of comfort when I'm depressed. And I have my therapist to thank .

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land, Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh if.... I won't have to work no more. And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry, Yes if I ever lose my eyes, Oh if.... I won't have to cry no more.
And if I ever lose my legs, I won't moan, and I won't beg, Yes if I ever lose my legs, Oh if.... I won't have to walk no more. And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south, Yes if I ever lose my mouth, Oh if.... I won't have to talk...
Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light. Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?
