Having a mental illness when your parents do not “believe” in them or understand sucks ass. I have been diagnosed with depression, spent 3 weeks in behavioral health hospital (pretty much a mental hospital), and have been on anti depressants for 4 years and they still think i need to suck it up when I am depressed. I wish i could just suck it up and be happy, but it doesn’t work that way. I don’t want be depressed for no reason. I don’t like feeling like killing myself. If it was as easy as just sucking it up I would have done that a long time ago. What sucks even more than that is not being able to ask for help without being told how you’re just sensitive. If i could and if I felt comfortable, I would ask my mom if I could go back to therapy, because I need it more than anything right now.
