Exclamation Advice ? not sure if its depression i have. ?

Hi, im amy, and im new to this Forum. I dont exactly think i have depression, but i joined to see if anybody else is going thru what im going thru. Late last year i went thru a stage where i wouldnt talk to anyone for months and months. After school i'd go straight to my room and not come out until the next day. I didnt eat properly, and i didnt do well at school. At the end on lastyear my step dad died in a bike accident, and i just completely shut everybody out. Im constantly fighting with my parents, and my sister is always mean to me. I cause fights with my friends for no reason and i later regret doing it. The other day i was walking to my bus stop, and a car was coming and i couldnt get myself to move out of the way, but i couldnt bring myself to do it, i turned around and moved out of the way, my sister just looked at me like i was crazy. I might actually sound crazy and theres proberly nothing wrong with me, but i just felt like i should share... and maybe get some advice with whats going on in my mind.. I used to cut myself, but nobody knew i did. And know i still dont talk to my friends much, im pretty much quiet, and i dont bring food to school, nor do i eat at home, i think after everything, im just getting sick. Please dont judge me for if im just plain crazy, im just seeking advice and if anyone has gone thru this before ?
thanks !

Well, the only person who can legally diagnose you with anything is a psychiatrist/psychologist. You sound a little...like you should seek counseling and someone professional to talk to. It could be depression, but then again you sound kind of borderline...but then again I don't know what I'm talking about.

Depression or not, and its not for me to decide it sounds a lot like you need to talk to someone about how you are.

Get to the doctors they can be surprisingly helpful and keep posting here, their is a lot of experience on this board

Be safe

No one can say for sure except your doctor/psychiatrist. for your sake you should at least go talk to some one about how you feel and just see what happens. some of us just let it go and move on only to have those feelings come back stronger and lasting longer. That is if you really are depressed i mean, and i am not saying wither you are or are not.

I think considering you've lost someone quite recently it is difficult to say whether it is depression or just your way of dealing with things, again I think the best thing you can do is talk to a doctor or school nurse, whoever you are comfortable with and get some professional advice, Whether you do have depression or not, don't feel like you can't still talk to people here, I don't think a medical diagnosis is compulsory. Hang in there and try to get some help, the sooner you deal with it, the easier it will be to control it. Good luck x
