It's just been recently that a friend has pointed out the similarities I've had to the symptoms of depression. I've had anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and 2 bad break downs so far for it to become too much to leave alone any longer. The hardest part I've found is trying to make people understand. My friends could never read my mood swings or why some days would be good and others not at all. My parents didn't want to support what I had to say. My mom is getting better understanding. The worst part is that my dad is diagnosed with clinical depression and all he had to say was "Dont convince yourself you're anxious when you're not. Don't wish that upon yourself." It bothered me so much that someone who has/is experienced/ing depression could tell me to change the way I feel. It's not very easy or controllable is it? I've been to my doctor and so far all he's said is to give me natural things for moodiness or PMS. Somehow my doctor didn't even get it.
