    I think I have depression.
    I mean, my mum has it and I just feel really depressed all the time. Sometimes I'll have the odd suicidal thought.
    But I really do think I have depression;

    HOw long have you had these feelings. I would suggest that you go to the doc. One question I am always asked if there is a family history so they obviously assume there is a link.

    Your doc will prob ask you a few questions like... how long have you felt like it, do you have thoughts of self harm or suicide and how often. They will prob give you a questionnaire to fill in. Well I was.

    Your best thing to do is go to your doc though and see if he can help you.

    ElectroSynth, see a shrink but don't rush straight into the pill route. Regular, honest talk therapy has shown in some studies to be as effective as ADs (antidepressants).
