I'm not sure if this is the best forum for this, but here I go. If I don't lose the nerve, I'm going to send an email to my Mom telling her that I am deeply depressed, and I'll send it tonight. When we were talking today, she told me that some people you wouldn't expect it of are struggling with depression, and gave an example of a person she knew who was having trouble getting out of bed. I almost told her then, but I decided against it. So, wish me luck . It's scary. I know I need to tell my parents sometime, but it still doesn't make this easy.
