Hey everyone. This is my first.post so im just going to dive in. Ive been struggling with depression for most of my life. Ive kept it from my family as we are not that close. Im very close with my suster though. I have kept it from her as she has a negitive view of people with depression because of what we went through as kids. I just wanted to know if it would be fair if i spoke to a friend about it. He is my closest friend and also has alot to deal with and i know he would be very worried if i told him about it. So would it be fair on him if i told him about it. Im also going to a support group next week so maybe i could rather get support there. This depression is affecting my work and social life badly and i feel i need to talk to someone and get help asap. I also wonder what are the best ways to overcome depression. Seeing a doctor is not an option for me at the moment. If someone share what has been working for them?
