    thanks, i'll keep that in mind [: ...

    so, my dad knows that i'm depressed but my mom just thinks it's a phase.
    now they're fighting about it.
    my dad wants me to get help.
    i'm scared.

    only you know if you are ready to open up and discuss your feelings with either your parents, or with a doctor/counsellor etc, ..

    have you tried confronting the very reasons you feel depressed, and what was the outcome, .. what is it that makes you feel low, what keeps you focussed, what are your interests etc, ..

    being depressed is not fun ("really? wow, what a shock" i hear you say) - i've been currently on medication for ages, had counsellors, mental health assessments done, and now have a member of the CATT (crisis and treatment team) guys out each day to administer meds to go along with my anti-depressants. I have found them to be brilliant, and are really supportive, and there if i need to get away from everything and go and have a chat for a half hour over a cuppa etc... maybe ask your doc to see if your local hospital has a CATT section operating that could help you when you're at your lowest ebb.

    "my dad said i shuold go to a counsler, idk if that'll help me or make me worse. he also said i should be medicated, i think the same for them too, i'm scared. i don't want to feel worse. :/ "

    a while ago, when my rents found out about my depression, they wanted me to see someone, and go on meds. And i was so opposed to the idea. i just wanted to be left alone. i didnt think that anything like that could help how i felt. and that i didnt want to talk about my problems to some bullshit counsellor....i really thought it would make it worse......and having since had to deal with my problems on my own.....

    i wish i had gone and at least tried it....you may find that describing how you feel helps, because it makes you put how you feel into words, which can make it easier to understand......and it may help your mum to become more understanding and supportive.....

    i dont know. you may even find that talking to someone is enough...and you dont need to resort to meds.....

    hope this helped.
