Exclamation Depressed .... - January 9th 2012, 11:04 PM

I was forced to a counselor .. They said I was depressed but they weren't gonna put me on medicine unless I felt like I needed to be ... I didn't know how to tell her so I kept my mouth shut ... Well , the person I had moved and I got a new counselor .. She's a little better and I like her a little more ... She tries harder to get me to open up .. Well , I feel like I need to be on some kind of medicine to help because I can tell I'm really depressed .. I have thought of suicide before .. I'm now trying to stop cutting .. I just don't know how to tell my counselor and I don't want it getting to my grandma that I wanna be on medicine because it'll make it worse .. What do I do ?

If you feel like staying away from medication is unhealthy for you, you need to tell your counselor. I know it's a tough thing to say, but there's a lot on the line. Believe me, it'll be worth it in the end. I'm not positive, but I think your caretaker will have to be informed if you are prescribed with medication, assuming you are a minor. What scares you so much about your grandma finding out? Shoot me a message and we can talk about it some more. Stay strong, MadaLynn.

wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.
