Well first off most people who have depression go about denying it. So the first step you have already taken by admiting you may have a problem. There is absolutly nothing shameful about having depression but you may want to seak out someone to talk to about your problems talking has always helped me.

Re: depression?

Hey...

A lot of teens experience what you're going through. It's not easy! I used to be the same way, and eventually I figured out what the problem was... I was way too self-focused. Constantly I would mope around just because I had a zit or I figured out my fingers were bent weird. I modeled for a while, and that made me feel bad about myself because I was constantly being judged-- too skinny, too fat, too pale, too tall, too short. I felt like I wasn't good enough for anyone. So, not too long ago I got myself to stop thinking about what I look like and if I look ok and stuff. I can't describe how happy I am now. I was in a restrictive relationship for a while, and now that I'm out of it contributes to my happiness as well. Do you have any idea of the cause of your sadness? Like what causes you to cry?

It sounds like you may have a chemical imbalance.. have you asked you parents to see a doctor or physchiatrist about your problem?

Re: depression?

Well, you really can't help yourself unless you ask someone to help you!

It's perfectly fine, and normal. Your also doing the right thing for asking for our opinions. Don't be afraid to bring it up. I get severly depressed, and I see psychologists, and it helps a lot. So don't be afraid to bring it up.

Re: depression?

Are you afraid of how they will react?

Tell a teacher whom you really trust and ask them if they could help you set something up with the school psychologist, and ask your teacher to go with you if you are scared and you are comfortable with them going with you. So that way, you don't have to tell youur parents right away if you don't want to.

That's a good idea.
