Re: Depressed and Ashamed
At first, I thought I was the only one who got that depressed and so I was really ashamed with myself... but I agree, once you have told a couple of ppl, you would soon find out a lot of people around you who have been / are going through depression, or at least you wont be the first person for most of them. And yes, all you would get by telling people is supports and cares, well mosy people. So now instead of my friends thinking I am just moody and miserable, when they see my moods change or I go totally silence, they know why, and they would either leave me alone or ask me if I need any help... whereas in the past they would just think I didnt want to be with them... like today, we went to a leaving party of a very good friend of mine, and I had to leave before the end of it, they tried to hold onto me, but I said I really want to go home, they didnt even asked or anything, they just told me to look after myself... so I guess it's good to tell your friends about it, not that to expect any support, but at least they wont be pushing and would at least understand you when your moods change... and sometimes I think certain ppl need to know about it, otherwise after a while, they might really end up thinking you dont like them rather you actually hving a crisis with yourself... some ppl are very sensitive...
