yes you should see a psychiatrist for an evaluation, there are so many drugs out there that can change your thoughts for the better...Wish you well...it's obvious that losing your eye had added to your other problems...Lil

I just wanted to add that if you are feeling suicidal and need someone to talk to that has experience with that please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline- the people on the end are there to help you and can help you get the resources you need. Here is the number- 1-800-273-8255

They also have a chat service if you prefer typing- here is the link for that. http://chat.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/GetHelp/LifelineChat.aspx

Here's another organization that has phone numbers to call- https://www.linesforlife.org/get-help-now/?gclid=CJzri_znhNUCFU1tfgodR7YHKg

I hope you are able to find the help you need. You may not feel strong, but you have made it this far and are seeking help so you must be a survivor. There are many resources and therapies to help relieve your suffering. Depression and anxiety can conspire to make you feel hopeless. It can be helpful to talk things through with someone so they can help you find rational, healthy thoughts to replace the harmful ones. Sending love your way and wishing you luck on you mental health journey.

*I make eye patches for a living, but I will not sell to you unless you PM me. I'm here to learn and support. :)

Hello Matijaa,
once again welcome to this great forum!
A few years ago, I also felt depressed and angry because I will never be like the other guys. Some other kids in my class were nasty to me... but these aren't the majority. My experience is that most people (that you tell about your eye) will support you. They will ask a lot of questions and they will understand if you don't want to answer some, too.
Back then, it was a very tough time for me but I got a lot of support and finally, I started to feel better and I'm sure you will experience similar things!
What helped me the most was getting to know other one-eyed people! Although forums like this one offer you great support, there is nothing better than meeting others in real life!
And please don't forget: You're not alone!
Best wishes, Therra
