I really need help now. My depression is really starting to ruin my life. I really don't know how to get help. I have tried going to the doctors but I always wimp out before, end up talking about my bad back instead of my depression. I don't know how to 'come out' as it were to my family; like would it be easier if I was diagnosed with something? But I feel I need the support of my family (or least someone who knows me) to go to the doctors. I really don't know what to do, I am on a downward spiral. Thanks for reading guys.
