Hi welcome to the forum :)

Why would you think she won't believe you ?
Could you talk to your GP about it?

Love n hugs xxx

Depression is quite the thing, isn't it? If things are not physically noticeable then society thinks that it is all "made up". And you really can not blame them because there are people out there that want to cheat the system. Sad.

Depression is a common illness and supported by intense feeling of sadness, hopelessness, anger. It is more of temporary illness but persists on daily basis. Basically it can be major, minor and bipolar. It makes a person feel sad and causes sleeplessness. Major cause of this is due to genetic problem, stressful life, childhood abuse. It also affects physical and chemical imbalance of brain. Greater risk arises if you are unemployed and also addicted to drug. You should consult some good health care professional who can help you in giving proper medication and treatment taking into view the state in which you are in. For severe depression, inpatient treatment or hospitalization may be necessary which includes intensive therapy, 24-hour supervision, and a high level of structure and support. Alternative treatments also can be helpful such as yoga, meditation, diet plan, exercise and change in lifestyle.

Hi Merylbear

Why do they think you're making it up, do you think? Have they said that to you, or is that what you think they think?
How does your depression affect you day to day?

Are there no support groups in your area. People that you can share your problems with? Because just to mingle with this fast paced world can be overwhelming. I can see your point.

I can't stand being around people at all when I do I get very anxious and have to get away from them as soon as possible that's why I can't go to a support group I have told my mental health this and my psychiatrist but all they say is support group I also suffer from agoraphobia I can't stand being outside at all soon as I get outside I want to come back in again
