I have lived with my dad my entire life, mostly because my parent's are divorced and have been since I can remember. I have had depression as long as I can remember too, and I have instinctively hidden it from my family. The only weird thing about it is that all my friends know about it, and my family doesnt. My dad is hardly supportive at all. He always criticizes everything I do, and it constantly keeps me down. But I have been talking to my boyfriend, who is very supportive, and we have both agreed that it is time for me to tell my dad that I have depression. Only problem is, I dont really know how to say it. And I know deep down that I can't face him, so I've asked my boyfriend to be there when I tell him. He agreed to be there when I tell my dad whats going on, and that helps alot. But telling my dad about depression also has something that comes with it: my religion. When I was at a very low place about three years ago, I was at my worst and I wanted to die almost every day. I started questioning things.. and I came to rest in my current and final religion: satanism. I understand if that makes people uncomfortable... and I dont want my dad to take that the wrong way. But most of my friends are fine with it, so I dont see why he wouldnt be too. He isnt really religious or anything.. anyway, I am just looking for a way to tell him whats goin on. any sugguestions really help me out, and I am going to thank you all in advance for even reading this NOVEL :P
