so i know yall prolly hear this all the time and i hate to say it again but i think i may suffer from depression...
its not uncommon in my family and i have my days but im not really sure what the problem is... i have massive moodswings. i have days when i just wanna be alone all alone and cry. days when i cant hardly get out of the bed even.
i have entirely too much stress for a girl my age (18) and i just dont know what to do anymore.
i know its not cool at all...but bad thoughts cross my mind...but everytime that happens i try to push it back out... soometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt.
i've never really talked about this to anyone... i've brought it up to my mom before in a casual conversation and she just brushed it off.. and the other day my dad was like "are you bipolar"? just jokingly because i was mid-moodswing...
i wouldnt mind going to counsleing for ALL my problems but i dont know of anywhere to go and i feel weird talking to people because im normally the one listening...
well anyways if someone could help that would be great!

Hi Silent Tears,
I too have recently found myself suffering from depression. (crying all the time and not wanting to go out or do anything) I have talked to my doctor and specialist (liver), and have now been given an anti depressant, (Lexapro) for a while at least, until I get myself under control again. I am feeling terrific at the moment but i know it is the meds.

Talking about the problem helps, and this forum is great for that, but medical advice is the real answer.

Hope things get better for you.
Take care.

Hi Silent tears, I would like to add my welcome to you.
I agree with jordaNzone here, you really need to seek some professional help.  Please talk to your doctor about how you are feeling.  I suffer with depression myself and was in a really bad place about 6 months ago but I am coming out the other side now and I know it sounds hard to believe, but this does get better.  I take effexor for my depression and this has helped me.  Anti depressants do not solve our problems but they help to lift that big black cloud.
Take care and post again, you did a good thing by taking the first step and posting here.
