Am I depressed?

Dec 06, 2017 5:36 PM

For the last three years people have been calling me depressed. I know it’s hard for me to smile sometimes and also laugh not just because my pain is really bad. Most of the time when I’m talking to people I don’t really care to continue our conversation and at school I try to hide in the corner but my boyfriend asks me to come over to the group. I don’t know what’s wrong or why it’s hard for me to do this stuff. Please help me.

There is no shame in asking for help. In fact it shows that you care about yourself. Love yourself and see a counselor. You are worth it!

Please seek help from a mental health professional. If you begin to think about harming yourself or you do, please call a crisis number, talk to a parent or doctor. There's nothing wrong with asking for help. Seeking help from a professional may improve some of your pain, and they'll give you strategies to manage the stress of living with chronic pain.

I was and old tough guy. I ask for help when I need it. I see phycologist to deal with the stress and depression. There is no shame in that. The good thing is now you have another person who knows what you are going through and can write to your Doctor if needed.
