Well, as some of you may know, I am depressed. If you don't, here's the tails--->
http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum13/HTML/000181.html

Well, I haven't asked for help yet. But I was wondering if any of you have had this problem, and have gotten better without any prof. help? I really do want to get help, however I'm a major wimp. I've been trying to tell my parents about my depression (and another problem I can't exactly say now) and I just can't; it's just not possible. I'm so lost

If it IS severe depression, it's very hard, if not damn near impossible, to truely get through it yourself. I know, i've tried.

I was diagnosed w/ chronic/clinical depression in april 2000. Since then, i've been in the hospital for 10 days, been to the ER once, been through two different psychiatrists, three social workers, three different types of anti depressants, and two different types of anti anxiety meds.

Does this look like something i could've dealt w/ on my own? No. I tried, and ended up turning to cutting and smoking to make msyelf feel better.

Moral of the story ... Get help. It's much easier (and much more effective) if you have professional help. Lucky gave you some very good advice about talking to your parents about it. If that's not an option, you could talk to your guidance counselor at school. I saw one of the social workers through the school ... She'd come to see me one day a week for an hour, and my parents didn't have to be involved at all. Maybe your school can do the same for you.

I had to do a bit of research on that one ... lol

You can find a definition here

I always just saw them sort of like therapists ... I worked better w/ them tho b/c they weren't doctors. W/ doctors, i sort of felt like i was always being watched and they were analyzing everything i said ... and it was all being written down. Social workers might do all that too, but they're better at hiding it

UGH, just as and update...

When I told them they said I was acting like a two year old, that I need to move on and make myself happy, and that I'm just saying it's so bad to get attention. The reason they think that is because I can't tell then the reason I'm depressed, becuase I don't even know. I know I'm severely depressed, so I guess I'm just going to be like this forever

They said you were acting like a two year old? That dosen't seem right. Did you tell them everything you felt?

There's not always a reason for depression. Many teens find themselves on an emotional rollercoaster because of hormone changes- and those feelings can make the person feel down a lot.

Maybe there's another adult you can talk to like a teacher or another family member? And remember your friends are always there for you. *Huggles*
