I'm brand new to this whole thing but I just needed to find a way to talk to others in my position and try to sort all of this out.
I'm 17 and was diagnosed with depression about
a month ago, I've tried talking to my mum about
it but we don't exactly have the best relationship and she doesn't seem to believe that I'm depressed or that depression is a proper illness.
She claims that I can't be depressed because I "sing to music in my bedroom" however my college grades and attendance are progressively getting worse. I can't talk to her about
anything and I haven't been back to see my doctor to discuss what to do about
my depression because I'm too scared of my mum finding out.
I'm incredibly low at the moment and feel like I have nobody to talk to about
this because I just feel like I'm rambling on and I don't want to make them feel low as a result!
Any help would be much appreciated!
