Increasing Self-Esteem/friend troubles

Question
Hi,I need help with friends! They are never there when I need them and they always push me out, I'm sick of them teasing me and making me feel horrible about myself!  When they try to talk to me I try to tell them what's happening but they never listen, I feel sometimes that no one loves me but God, so I hang on to my Christianity very tightly and I never forget God's love. But I I'm seriously getting depressed and feel alone. What do I do? I'm just a little middleschool girl!

Answer
Hi Julia, Feeling rejected and depressed may all be part of the same underlying biological illness of hypoglycemia. Please read:
What is Hypoglycemia?  
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/

This can be treated by going on a hypoglycemic diet (   http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-hypoglycemic-diet/).

Also read:

Depression is a Nutritional Disorder
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/depression-a-nutritional-disorder/

and follow this up with a self help psychotherapy course as explained at:

Summary of Psychotherapy Course
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2012/self-help-website-for-personal-growth/#PSYCH

This may help you to become more assertive without feeling upset ad be in control of your social relationships.
