I've just turned 15 and I've been feeling depressed for about a year now. My mum is clinically diagnosed with depression and takes antidepressants so it might run in the family? I don't want to self diagnose myself with anything but I pretty much tick all the boxes when I search up depression. I've considered suicide before and I've self-harmed. I've taken the day off school today and yesterday as I've been crying non-stop and couldn't find the energy to get up in the morning.
Should I talk to the doctor? If so, how should I ask my mum to take me (I can't go on my own as I live in the middle of nowhere)?? Also, what would they do if I go to the doctor - I'm really anxious that I'm "faking" this somehow and beliveing my own lie as I have no reason to feel this way? Help me
