I don't quite know what to do. My parents both seem to believe that my depression is not so much depression as it is just a "bad mood." They make millions of excuses for me, no matter how hard I try. I've already been officially diagnosed by three seperate experts throughout the past 5 years, and still my parents refuse to get me treatment, help, or medication. They even fire my theripists when they tell them I need help. Depression runs in the family, for God's sake. How can they still be in denial over this? I don't know what to do. This depression is dominating my life, ruining it. I feel like a totally different person because of it. I'm scared...I want help but I don't. I've been like this for so long, I can't imagine what it would like to be WITHOUT my depression. Would I even be myself anymore? I can't be without it. I want to hold onto it out of fear, and at the same time I can not survive with it untreated like this any longer. What do I do?
