    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.

    Is there someone who is more sensitive than others who you can talk to? Can you write down what you want to say to your doctor and tell him/her what is going on? You can even get a screen shot of this post and bring it to your doctor...whatever helps you start the conversation is of benefit...with caring
