I'm sorry to who ever is reading this because i know that you probably have it way worse than i do, i just really need some advice and im sorry if this is posted in the wrong area.

I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression when i was 16. I first noticed it in when i was 14 after a girl i knew attempted to kill herself and blamed it all on me. I was 14 at the time and i had no clue what to do after that. When i turned 16 i couldnt sit in a class without wanting to throw up and was brought to a therapist and was diagnosed with depression and anxiety.

My issue with therapy is that my parents spent €90 a week for me to see her for an hour but she was only ever there for 20 minutes of my session. I tried telling my mam but she would give out saying that she spends all of this money on therapy and that i don't want to help myself. So, i lied and said i was feeling better and didn't need therapy.

Im 21 now and my mam has been through breast cancer, how can i tell her im still feeling depressed when she has had it so much worse than me. The depression i feel has gotten worse. Some days i feel numb and other days i just want to die. How am i meant to cope with all of this?

Lexus, are you on meds? You shouldn't have to cope with it, find a phyc rather than a therapist,
it sounds like the one you were using was a crap one any way.

No wolram, I've never been on meds. The one I was using was so crap. Like i really should give a psych a try, i'm just worried they're gonna be like the therapist

Don't think your problems are trivial and not as bad as anyone else's problems. If you're thinking about hurting yourself and feel so depressed, you're problems are significant. Have you tried phoning a crisis line? We have Samaritans in the UK. I don't know which country you're from.
