Default In need of Advice

Hi, as all of you probably know, I suffer from severe depression, this came on at a very young age. I'm struggling bad atm and honestly I'm playing my life day by day like a survival game. It's beggining to hurt when I'm thinking and everything's got me feeling so low I begin to think suicide is the only way out. I've been fighting these thoughts for about 2 - 3 years , although struggling with depression for about 7 years ( from 10 years old) . I'm begginging to freak out and have manic episodes, for example, seeing creepy faces and scary stuff when I'm trying to go to sleep, hearing my name being called out when listening to music when there is nobody about and shadows in mirrors and the corner of my eye. I know this stuff isn't real/ there but it is still worrying, I'm wondering if this could be because of me fighting severe anxiety , depression and suicidal thoughts or if this might be something completely different like schitzophrenia in development?

Any advice is much appreciated thanks.
I currently go without medication because when I went in with depression the doctor simply told me 'no pain, no gain' and no medication etc as other doctors don't want to put me on tablets. I don't do counselling as I usually get wound up by the pressure and rebel against their decisions. God I'm so self destructive!

A good therapist does not make decisions for you, they listen to you responses to their questions and guide you to mKe your own good decisions, any that tell you what to do are not doing their job correctly, the whole point is to leRn about you and guide you , I really believe they are of great help if you have the right one

It sounds like you really need to seek a second opinion, especially now that it has gotten to the point of hallucinations.

I believe that if your therapist is not making you feel better or helping to cope in a safe way, then you should see someone else. Just refusing medication doesn't sound right to me...

Update :Thank you all for taking the time to read this and responding, I've took the advice and went for a second opinion, I have changed doctors and getting one to one counselling arranged at the infirmary, I'll let you all know how my first appointment with this counsellor goes and what is said.
