Hey guys, just wanting some advice really.
My mother and strpfather split up two years ago, and it really hit me hard, considering I came back from a trip away to find he wasn't living with us anymore. Since then my cousin has died, as has my grandfather - who I was very close to.
I have been felling very down recently and looked up signs of depression - just in case - and I related to nearly all of them.
I don't want to burden my mother because she is under stress because of her divore finalising and also money worries, and I don't live with my father so don't feel that close to him.
Would I be able to consult my doctor without my mother knowing?
I don't know what to do because even if I am depressed, I wouldn't know how to tell my mother.
And because I'm only 16 I'm not even sure if I will actually have depression because I'm so young.
Well thanks for reading this, replies would be appreciated.
