40 is fabulous!

With age  comes wisdom so even if you can’t have any fun on your actual birthday, it doesn’t mean you can’t set aside a day to celebrate however you wish so make sure you do something special for yourself.

But remember just because you are wise, doesn’t mean you can’t let it all go and just be a giant goofball.

So put on your crown and have a great birthday!

I think im depressed but i dont know how to tell my parents and i don't really want to. Really, most of the time its not too bad but i get phases where i feel dangerously low. Im in one right now and for the first time, i really want to die. I wouldn't commit suicide because im such a chicken. any advice?

Yes, talk to your parents. I know it might be difficult getting the words out, but is keeping it all inside helping?

If you really can’t or won’t talk to your parents, perhaps a guidance counselor or a friends parents?

Or you can use whichever of these resources is appropriate for where you live.

Please know that depression lies. It does get better. You do not have to do it alone, so please reach out and get the help you need. 

For the anon on high school survival: Join some clubs, it's probably the easiest way to make friends. In class, get to know the people around you. I know it's super hard, but just start out simple. Say hi, or just talk about the assignment-maybe you'll even get a study buddy out of it. And just don't give up on it. I hope this helped some! Good luck!!

It has been a long time since I’ve been in high school so I’m putting this out there to those currently in school or who were there much more recently than I have been. Can you give our anon some high school survival tips? 

I just had a fight with father because he doesn't care about me and he called me names. I'm sobbing right now and my mother is playing with her dog because she doesn't care about me too. She just said: "Look, he licked my nose" and laughing. And they dare to ask why I'm scared of people. fml
