Some people look at someone when they say they are depressed, and make it seem like they are self seeking and only looking for attention and pity. That our problems aren't "bad enough" to be depressed. It's not all about our problems it's about how we think about things and how we handle things. I'm always afraid to tell people because they think I need attention. I don't need attention I need help. Genuine help. Right now though I don't feel like i can tell anyone that I'm depressed and thinking about suicide. If i did, they still wouldn't believe me.
