    I have been depressed since I was 14. I am 34 now.
    I hate my life and I really dont think I will make it to the end of this month.

    I have never sought help for my problems as I have always managed to bounce back temorarily. This time, I really cant do it.

    I have decided before I go I should at least visit my GP and see if he can help me.

    I am a shy person and not so good with words.
    Can someone tell me what I should say to my doctor? I am afraid they wont believe me.

    Thank you.

    Hi agirl and welcome to SF. I'm sorry to hear that you have been suffering with depression since you were 14. Depression is such an awful mental disorder, because you look physically fine, but inside, you're in so much pain. I think you should talk to a psychiatrist and maybe try some medication. Please don't give up hun. :hug:

    He will help you, but please don't do anything without seeing him first and doing what he suggests because you gotta try.

    Say listen to me doctor X you have to help me get back to being happy again. I tried reading all the self help books, the magazines, and talked to people but nothing is working. I am suicidal and I need help Now.

    Do not be afraid - he/she is a human being too.

    I really hope you get help, I mean it Im in a very similar place to you right now and it hurts.

    Seeing a doctor definitely sounds like something you should do. Tell them what you've been feeling and make sure to emphasize that you are suicidal and that it is urgent. They will take you seriously so don't worry about it. Just tell them in words everything that's been going on in your thoughts. I truly hope you can break past this.

    As you know NOW is the time to seek help. There is nothing to be shy about. We ALL have problems. You seem like a very sweet person. Just take the first step. The rest will fall into place. When I was 20 I went to my first therapist andf had a total breakdown,but it helped and i got MUCH better in a few months. PLEASE don't worry just walk in the office and do it. We are all here pulling for you. YOU are too precious a soul to let go. So please go forward and get help. We will all be here too and want you to succeed and it will help us to know you did! Time to start a new and BETTER life!!!!


    Write if you like,

    hi agirl

    What I've always said is just "I'm depressed and I need your help." And then all the tons of things I need to say will come out as he asks about my depression.

    If there are things I want to be sure to tell him, then I just write a few words for each to jog my memory.

    But you don't have to be prepared with a list of reasons to validate your feelings, or know the correct terms to use, or be prepared to list your entire history of depression.

    Then you should see a psychiatrist or psychologist. GP's just don't have the experience to counsel you, so ask him to recommend someone.

    I can relate to your feeling he might not believe you. His reaction could be patronizing, or he might think you're overreacting or a hypochondriac or maybe even whining (I've had that kind...). In those cases you just have to move on to another one.

    I hope this helps. It might also help to just brain-dump right here some of those things that make you depressed.

    I think you should make a list of your thoughts so you don't forget anything..When you see your doctor let him read the list and have him refer you to a pdoc..You can do it.. I have been depressed since I was 13 and I am now 53..Through getting help I have survived all these years..Take care!!
