I meet all the points, and this has been going on for years and been interrupting almost everything in my day to day life. But I don't want to just walk out and try to talk about it because I don't want to seem like I'm making fun of it to other people that have it. Plus I don't trust any of my family enough to have a talk with them about it and I would feel like a complete idiot if I tried talking to my friends about it and I didn't really have it. I really don't want to talk to my guidance counselor because all she could really do other than to talk it out, is to call my parents which is the LAST thing I need or want. What do I do?
I doesn't matter whether or not you actually have it. If you've been feeling like that, you deserve help. And if people think you don't, it's about time you ignored them. You are a wonderful person, and deserve to do everything you can to feel better
What a load of bullshit. The DSM. Are you fucking kidding me.
Fucking psychiatrist bullshit. No scientific test just some bullshit diagnosis by a narcissistic megalomaniac who couldn’t actually make it as a real doctor and takes the diagnosis from a book. All I can say is.....anatomy of an epidemic! Read it.
Weaitamelo~ What about those who have pcos. My research on pcos is that one of the symptoms is depression. What would that mean? Doctors do not always have the answers. I was researching on the topic on the spiritual aspect of it and found that the core is wanting to commit suicide yet not doing that. I did not find anything on the core of that, though. What are your thoughts on this? Thanks~
I met the criteria for all of the points. Only slightly in a couple of them.. I've always been told it's bad to self diagnose but I'm afraid to talk to others about it. Some of my friends and siblings know I think I have depression but I'm never been diagnosed professionally so I always feel bad about saying I have it. I do believe I'm depressed, wether it's situational or clinical I'm not sure but it's been going on for around 19 months and I'm not sure what to do about it. I don't want to go to my family about it or seek professional help, even though that would be the correct thing to do. I'm not sure what I should do. I need help.

That's exactly how I feel. I don't want to diagnose myself but I'm too busy, tired, and scared to talk to a professional, let alone bring it up to my family or friends. But I want you to know that you're not alone <3
R K I know this is an old comment but I just wanted to tell you that it's not that easy...
I have the same problem as the girl who wrote the first comment and believe me, I tried to tell someone *countless times* but the words just didn't come out...

Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
