Hi, I think I have depression. I looked in this book called understanding depression and I looked at the symptoms, it said "if you are suffering from 4 or more of these symptoms for most of the day every day for two weeks then speek to your local GP immidietly, I've suffered from 10 of the symptoms for most of the day every day for two months, I want to tell my parents but I'm afraid they will get upset and I hate seeing my parents upset, what should I do? Please help.

TELL YOUR PARENTS!!! Get a therapist! Depression is a leading cause of suicide, and you don't want that happening! I "suffer" from 4 or more of the symptoms but I'm not "depressed", so it's really up to you to decide if you actually are or not.

(SORRY MY COMMENT WENT HAYWIRE AGAIN)

Agreed. Its your choice to decide if your depressed or not.
with all due respect, no it is absolutely not optional. depression is a mental condition where the brain cannot release enough serotonin to make a person feel happy which often means that people will be left feeling unhappy or sad for months on end at some points. if you suffer from four or more symptoms then you are depressed and it is not your choice whether you are or not. i understand that this message was well intentioned but in the long run chances are that it will hurt more people than it will help
Excuse me, A. I have suffered from some depression before, so I know what I’m talking about. Ive known people like this. Anyway, I know it is not optional. And I have knowledge on the subject regarding the fact my gramps is a doc.

 

Anyway, get to a doctor!!!
don't try to educate me on depression, i've had it for 3 years. saying you can choose to be depressed or not is wholly untrue and if taken in the wrong context could cause harm to somebody who would be embarrassed about being depressed. i know you didn't mean any harm by it but you need to be careful of what you say on the internet, especially on a site filled with children
UGH. I can’t say IM EDUCATING you. I’m just stating WHAT IVE GONE THRU. ITS UP TO THE PERSON BECAUSE DEPRESSION COMES IN DIFFERENT FORMS, OK.

I’m sorry about you, though. Totally not mad at you.
