Do I have depression?

I have looked at loads of different websites of sings of depression and it all leads to say that I have Atypical depression. Not just like normal when people say they feel depressed but they only feel down for a little bit, but I keep on thinking about suicidal thoughts what do I need to do? and how can I tell my parents?

Answer #1

I used to have that, first talk to like a best friend then if that doesn’t work talk to a phyciatrist/doctor or someone like that if none of that works tell your family and get them to help.

Answer #2

You need to see your doctor asap. Tell your parents that you are scared you are going to hurt yourself and that you need to see a Dr Until you can see a Dr–if you are suicidal there is nothing wrong with going to the Emergency Room!!

Here are some links to hotlines:

National Adolescent Suicide Hotline 18006214000

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1800273TALK

PLEASE–ask your parents to let you see someone asap! Let them know you are serious!! Good luck!

Answer #3

That’s a good one. (It doesn’t diagnose) Just sit them down and tell them that you are depressed and sometimes you have suicidal thoughts and take it from there.

I hope you feel better.
