Depression on the other hand usually winds up with a person losing interest in activities they use to like, sleeping a lot/not sleeping enough, eating a lot/not eating at all, etc. Ultimately only your doctor can properly diagnose or confirm any of this.
thank you for the reply
I have lost interest in a lot of the usual activities i use to love, i hardly sleep at all, i have major eating problems, as well iknow only my doctor can properly diagnose me but i do not think my mom believes me so she wont take me to see one.Ive tried tel her but she cuts me off and says just being an ansty teen which agitated me incredibly, im not really sure what i should say to her so that she will believe me

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
