in 2005 i attempted suicide and landed myself in the psychiatric ward of a hospital for about a week. after being evaluated, i was diagnosed with depression. i refuse to take medication simply because i hate the thought of having to swallow a pill just to lead a relatively normal life. Anyway, my parents completely ignore the fact that i'm so up and down and when i try to talk to my mom about how depressed i am she just tells me to stop complaining. i really do want help. i can't stand living this way. so what i was wondering is, is it possible to see a therapist or some kind of counselor without needing a parent? or does anyone know any self help they found useful?
