I dont know what to do. I've never brought it up with my parents but i do really think i have depression. Every "symptom" is one i face, but how do you tell your parent you think you are depressed. and what will she do about it. will she be like other people i try to confide in? I have a feeling she will be. And when i dont have health insurance and i dont know if it would cover this anyway - theres no way i could afford seeing a doctor let alone paying for any meds if i do have it. None of my friends believe me. the girls i used to hang out with always teased people like me so i drifted away from them. the people i'm with now say im just over reacting and just need to calm down. They say im so negative because im stressed. But really i just stress easy and i'm not really pessimistic. I love to have fun, I love to laugh and make people laugh. I just stress easy, cry over small things, feel guilty about everything i do. These symptoms i would have never thought to associate with depression are here too. being tired (when i get 8 hours of sleep), aching pain....these are all here..but i just have no way of getting things fixed. im starting to ramble so i'll stop now.
