I recently have been feeling sad all the time, like I’d cry a lot for no reason, and the few times I’m happy, it lasts for a super short time. I took a lot on online tests just to make sure I didn’t have depression or anything like that. The first score I received said that I had a score of 87 for depression, so I almost definitely did have it. But I thought to myself, that can’t be right.
I took more and more tests, and they all say I have depression. I’m really scared about this. I want to talk to someone, but I feel like I can’t. All of my friends are all so happy right now, I just don’t want to ruin it for them. My family would never treat me the same if I told them. They’d treat me like I’d break at any moment or something, and that’s the last thing I want.
Please help, I don’t know who to talk to. And please give some legit advice, because I already read that crap about how “everyone’s here for you” and “everyone understands.” Truth is, they don’t give a shit, and all they want to do is fix me. Please help me. I’m so scared.
One thought on ““I’m scared that I have depression””
You need to go to a doctor or psychiatrist. If you have depression then you need to get help for it. Would you hope a broken leg would get better or go get help? It could be as simple as a hormone imbalance. There’s no shame in getting help, but do it now.
