Hey Tumblr so I need your help with something. Lately I’ve been feeling really depressed but my parents will not take me to a therapist because I think they just assume I’m overreacting. A lot of my friends have also been telling me that Iim only being dramatic and that I need to get over it and stop feeling sorry for myself. Here are the symptoms I’ve been experiencing:
-I’m feeling extremely insecure and no matter how many times my friends tell me they appreciate me I still feel as though everyone’s lying and that I’m usless
-I’ve started to lose the ability to care very much. Sometimes I feel emotion for certain things but not like I used to. I don’t even get very excited about my favorite things anymore.
-I have constant thoughts of suicide.
-I can be happy and laugh or smile but I feel really hollow inside like it’s all pretend. Even when I’m very happy it’s just not the same as it used to be.
-I get really tired and lose all my motivation very quickly, no matter how many people are encouraging me. I keep telling myself “I can be happy. I am a great person” But theres another voice that fights me every single step of the way.
All I ask of you now is to gain this post enough notes so that I can show my parents and my antagonists how many people agree that I am depressed. Maybe I am just being dramatic, but if so I’d like to know. I would really, really appreciate it if this reached 100-1000 notes. That’s 1000 people who will stand behind me and show my parents that I’m not just being dramatic, but that other people agree and recognize these as symptoms of depression.
Thank You, you’re all amazing people and if I can do anything to help any of you in return just let me know.
