depressed

I think I am really depressed and might need to get help for it. I can't sleep but am exhausted all the time. I don't ever feel like eating, I am not into sex any more. I just don't feel like myself. I am a little embarrassed to go to the doctor though....I don't know what to do

  • don't be embarrased. A lot of people struggle with depression and its sooo important to get help. Call your doctor right now and set up an appointment. Tell your doctor ALL your sympotoms, and tell them you may think its depression. meanwhile do things that make you feel better. for me praying and talking long walks helped and being around friends and famil I felt comfortable with sharing my struggles. I'm so sorry you feel this way :(

  • Yeah it really sucks. I have been feeling this way for a while now. I am scared because when I was younger I went though bad depression and used alcohol to cope and also used to cut myself...I don't want to end up going back to that again....I feel bad for my son because he needs his mommy to be happy
