  • You tell the doctor everything that's going on in your head. Be honest. You're only hurting yourself by holding back. Depression is nothing to mess around with. I suggest you get to your doc immediately to seek proper advice. Best of luck to you.

  • Be completely honest. Depression should not be embarrassing to you. It's nothing to be ashamed of. See your doctor and be completely honest. It will help so much more.
