Should I tell my parents that I feel depressed?
for the last 3 years i've felt really sad, and I've never really felt genuinely happy, i thought about suicide a few times but talked myself out of it. i also thought about telling my parents but didnt want them to get mad at me, or be disappointed. i thought that if i just pretended to be happy, that maybe i would be, but it only got worse, and now the only thing that makes me feel any better is cutting myself. i dont know if i should ask my parents to take me to a doctor, because i dont want them to think i want attention...i just dont want to be sad anymore. should i tell my parents how i feel?
