I am thinking about going to the doctors, likely tomorrow, for my depression and anxiety issues. They have been bad for a while. I can't function anymore. That probably sounds pathetic, I know. I have such an easy life anyways, but it seems so overwhelming. Some days I can't even be bothered to brush my teeth. I have come to the realization that I need to give help another try or I'm always going to feel this way. What should I expect? Last time I went to the doctor to talk about my symptoms, I was not totally honest because I was afraid he would tell my mom. I don't know how honest I should be, especially when he asks about suicidal thoughts. I don't know what he would do. I'm 17 years old and legally he can tell my mom anything, right? I'll be 18 in 2 months. I hate being so young. It's been my plan for a while to wait those 2 months, but I don't know if I can make it that long. I'd like to try therapy too, but right now maybe I just need medication. Would he even give me medication? He did last time, but that was with a therapist's reccomendation. Please help me out!
