I'm depressed and have been for fourteen months (undiagnosed) I'm starting to think its not just this though. I can't go to see anyone because my family don't know and wouldn't support me. i.e- make fun out of depression. But I know my brain works in a different way and I just snap out of nowhere. I think I might have other mental health issues but I can't find out hmm

Sorry you feel,this way.

Why do you think your family would not support you?

I would be ideal if they supported you seeking help but if needed you don't need to tell me.

You are not alone - please go to see your GP, they really can help, they will most likely refer you for counselling. There is no shame in mental illness, there really isn't - it sounds like your family need to come out of the dark ages however you know what, it doesn't matter what they think - you don't have to tell them.

Your family would not need to know if you chose not to tell them.
