So.....help? - February 20th 2011, 09:10 PM

I've determined by reading the comments I've had and from talking to one of my very good friends (Who has, practically since I've known her, been trying to get me to see a doctor for depression) that I should definitely go to a doctor. But the thing is, is that I'm totally scared out of my mind at the thought of going to a doctor with depression problems. Any one got any ideas? I'm out.

you shouldnt be scared or ashamed to go see a doctor for depression. a doctor will help you. if you feel depressed and you dont go see a doctor then things could end up getting worse and you could get more depressed. if you want to stop feeling depressed then seeing a doctor or even a counselor will help.

when i first started seeing my therapist my dad would stay in the sessions with me. idk what ur relationship with ur parents is like...but if thats no good maybe ur friend could go with u the first few times? Maybe that could get the ball rolling.

Hey!

I think what it is, is that you are scared of change!

See, when we're depressed we kind of become attached to it... it becomes a lifestyle, it defines us.

It can be hard to let go of it!

When we finally sucumb to getting help it means we are ready to change who we are!

It can take a while but you really have to be committed to it! Take it from someone who's been there!

Good luck!

Thank you everyone. Eventually I will hopefully come to my senses and see a professional. Special thanks to ...Curt. I think that helped a lot.
