how should I ask?
I seriously think I need to be checked out by a doctor to see if I am depressed. technicly, I know I am, but I decided I want to get help, and to get meds you need to be diagnosed. how can I ask my parents to get me checked out? a little bit about me, my family isn't so great. my dad is verbally, mentally, and emotionally abusive and is the reason I first started self harming. now I just can't controll it. it's been almost a year and I'm scared....but I feel like I have no idea how to bring it up to my parents... I need help. how should I ask to get checked out for depression and anxiety?
