    I'm a mess

    Ive been depressed for a while now, and I haven't wanted to admit it to myself. I haven't been to the doctor because I feel like it would be the final step to admitting I am clinically depressed. But the other night I had thoughts that scared me so I called my boyfriend and I asked him to come over because I just needed to be held and he told me he couldn't because he was busy. I'm afraid to tell my family because I know they won't understand. I feel like it's suffocating me and I don't know what to do.

    Going to the doctor would not be the final step, but the first step to getting better!

    If you had a physical illness, would you hesitate to see a doctor? A mental illness is no less serious, and sometimes can even be worse if not treated!

    Hesitate no more! You see that something is wrong, so now you have to do something. You say you don't know what to do, but really, you do!

    Tomorrow is Monday! Make that call! Being held is not an effective treatment for depression! It's nice, and feels good, but that's as far as it goes!

    Take care of you!
