how do you know

I don't know if I have "depression" or I just have problems.. lol.. I am 23 and I am quite heavy. I have gained a lot of weight in the last 6 years. I don't want to go out, I just like to stay home, I don't want to be with famly or friends. It is mostly probabloy because I am insecure, but I have such mood swings, and I am not happy.

Is this something that I should go see a doctor about, or is it nothing and is just an insecurity??

When I was in HS I would "cut Myself" not anymore, I haven't done that in years, but I never went to see a doctor about that. I hear that if you have depression and you do not get it treated, it doesn't really go away... So I am just curious, so anyone that can help...

Re: how do you know

hey Jbean
I know how you feel. We all have body image issues. Doesn't matter how pretty you are, there's always something we wish it could be better Perhaps you should go get a physical check up and bring up the issues with your GP. Even if you have no desire to loose weight, doc can suggest ways or referr therapy/meds to aide your depression. Also it doesn't hurt to go out for a walk once in a while. Good luck, help you feel better

I do want to lose weight, but seems that no matter what I do, it doesn't work. I am actually going to the doctor on Thursday..so I guess I will talk to her about this... I just don't know if I am a candidate for depression meds.

Is that true though, if you had depression in the past, and you do not get treatment it doesn't really go away???
