Recently one of my friends found out that I'm pretty depressed.. And she's been really pushing for me to tell my parents and do something about it. I'm 16, so I obviously can't do much without my parents there. I guess I'm kind of afraid that either my parents will overreact, or maybe I'm just overreacting and nothing's wrong. I don't really know what to do, so I guess I'm looking for advice? If I do tell my parents, they'll probably push for medication.. Does that help at all? Advice from somebody who doesn't know me at all would really be helpful.. Should I tell someone? Would it be beneficial? And if you think I should tell them... How in the world would I go about that??
