Feeling like everything is going wrong in my life, and I am seriously afraid of what I am capable of.
I am a male in my late teens, and suffer from depression and use avoidance as an escape method. I dont really want to go through everything that bothers me, so I am going to try and keep it short. Firstly, I have social anxiety and I try my best to talk to people, although I find myself feeling uncomfortable beacuse I am not good at conversing with people and I find myself not talking a lot due to being shy. Secondly, because of the things that i mentioned, I spend a lot of time alone im my room because I am scared and everytime I try and talk to my mom about these issues, she feels like some of the issues are irrelevant and that I dont actually have depression. I cry in my room a few times a week and worry that I may never get better. Thirdly, I work at a grocery store twice a week and recently I got another job with a relatives company, where i work three times a week, so that I can pay rent and save up for the future. I try my best not to call in sick or leave early from work because of anxiety, although lately it is becoming to much to bear. Lastly, I am currently seeing two counsellors and have a doctors appointment so that I can take medicine for my depression. I am really scared that my future will be bad and that I may potentinally harm myself if things get worse. Any advice? Thanks!
